My second first - I know, not really logical but bear with me, was Harrison having his first sleepover! Jarrod & I had an engagement party to go to so Harrison spent the night at Jarrod's mum & dad's. It was SO strange coming home and seeing an empty little cot. It was SO strange waking up without his smiling face greeting me! He seemed to have a great time & I know Nana & Pop had a great time too!
Next post will be of some recent projects, including those I made for our friend's engagement.
Just to finish off, here is a photo I took of Harrison last week, just before his shower. He looked so cute and has begun to realise that he should 'smile' for the camera (or in this case, just open you mouth and look super cute). I'm hoping to get another scrapbook page done soon, this time with a 'bath' theme so I can include this one.

Monday was Jarrod's birthday (Happy Birthday, babe) so I had Harrison help me make a special card for his birthday. Here it is.
When I saw SCS CC99 I knew these colours (Night of Navy, Taken with Teal [or NQN] and a neutral) would be great for a Jarrod's card. Harrison 'helped' me by letting me cover his little hand in W/White Craft Ink and 'stamping' it onto the Night of Navy card, which I then embossed using White Detail EP. (I also did a footprint at the same time - I'll use that for Father's Day) . Amazingly enough we DID NOT get ink everywhere, not a bad feat since he is VERY wriggly at the moment. I then matted that onto a layer of TWT and stamped happy birthday from EFP in NON ink. The dots were made using a white gel pen. I then matted that on W/White and then mounted this using DS Foam Tape onto TWT card that I had stamped with the Print Pattern background stamp, using my TWT marker to outline just the edges. I got this idea from Kendra. Once again the dots were made using a white gel pen.

Firstly, a big THANKS to Anna (my brand new downline) and Simone for their input on my scrapbooking page. I have finally finished it off - the reason it took so long is that I was trying to find some sheer black & white polka dot ribbon. I finally had a brainwave today as to where I might find some and, voila, sure enough Scrappy Hollow in Croydon had just what I was looking for. So here is the finished page.
I added an extra two matting layers, 1 white and 1 black to give me a bit of extra room to add the ribbon without it covering too much of Harrison's face. I then punched a 1-1/4 circle in Green Galore, matted that on a 1-3/8 circle of W/White and used my white Gel Pen to add the journalling. (btw is journalling spelt with 1 L or 2??). I then used my 1/16" punch to make holes to attach pewter jump rings and then theaded onto the ribbon and tied off. At the moment the 'charms' are swinging freely - I'm still undecided if I should stick them down or not? The photo is mounted on the page using DS foam tape. I'm happy with the way it looks now and I'm actually looking forward to do some more pages. (so save me a seat in your classes Anna)
