[CROP!]

It was a really enjoyable 'serious' meeting at the LSS to finally meet up with the rest of the DTs (some of them for the 1st time!), to brainstorm about new ideas, to discuss about scrap-related goodness (read = more shopping!) and to mull through lots and lots of hilarious suggestions! Thanks girls for being such a fun bunch, i really enjoyed myself. Faced with such a cool crop, how not to crop? heh. I went totally empty handed, with just my photos. Which was great as it was a Friday and most of the new arrivals from Thursday were still around. Fell in love with the flocked Prima papers (i just love the colours - teal and burgundy) Here's proof that you can definately complete a few scrap pages with just a few products!
The other essentials i bought were the "pop" dots Bazzill, the Lily Bee Design tags (the big scallops), MM glitter alphas and of course thanks to IG, AM and L for the embellies - prima flowers, die cut felt flower and Maya road pearl pins :)Came home to embellish further and complete the LO with some rubons from Hambly and AC, plus title stickers from JB.
The 2nd LO that i did during the crop, this was a super quick one! used the lily Bee tags again, this time both the negative and positives (money saving tip!) and then embellished with stickers - JB, HS, MM.
Then, i got home and had to scrap even more as i had all these new stuff and just had to justify them! haha.... so, head over here for a fun scraplift. I did 2 interpretations of it.
Papers are a mix of GCD, SEI and again the lily bee tags (a really nice size to use) The top circles (also my previous post - the princess crown) are stickers from the HS large sticker collection. Lots and lots of October Afternoon rubons - they are the best!A commissioned piece (Guestbook) for a wedding in May. Just piecing together the various fabrics, it's still half-way done, i've made a lot more progress on it today. :)this little one was all snotty and runny this morning, but i think it's cleared up since.
this makes my heart smile. The 2 of them really enjoying each other's company. They played for quite awhile with each other this afternoon. G will pretend to be Mummy while K is the lil baby daughter. G kept going - "ok, mummy needs to work now, go and sleep by yourself ok!" haha! maybe i've been doing that too often? But it was seriously cute to see her mock feeding her sister with the toy spoon and bowl, patting her to pretend sleep, waking her up with a hug and kiss, and then reading a little book to her! Of course, after about 20min (a record!) there's the usual snatching and all the crying and tantrums appear.... :P Owell, it was good while it lasted....
These 2 pics show the dynamics of the 2. G will pull the book towards herself and read out all the words, while K sits quietly next to her looking at the page. Then K gets her turn to touch the letters and pictures in the book. All under the watchful eye of big sis. :)Finally finished up the dress! pretty poor lighting but i'm quite happy that i managed to complete the whole pattern... heh. Will take more pics tomorrow with G in the dress :) Now i'm off to make another one!
