School holidays take II

So here I am again in bloggy world.  That is the second post this week, I’m on a roll lol!

So it is almost the end of the first week, both of the boys in the house are sick, Liam is just coming out the end of it and has just a cough.  Gary has the full on flu, aches and high temps so he is home with us as well.  I am refusing to catch this one, I won’t I won’t I won’t.  So do you think that will work?

Firstly, I love having my little scrap area in the lounge, it isn’t pretty, it is not even very functional but it means I can sit down and be part of the family and still get to be a bit creative.  I am going to miss that when we move upstairs into the large bedroom, but I am hoping that at least some of the family might join me in there sometimes at  least I can have all my stuff in one place.  And maybe I will be able to just make it just a little bit pretty lol as well.   I decided to do my first ever challenge at The Color Room, using pinks, and greys – oh my I don’t think I have ever combined those colours but I do love how they work together.    Now, this one isn’t even going to fit into an album sleeve so I am thinking it might need to be framed and put on the wall in her room.  Finally, I have found a use for those silver Prima butterflies as well. 

 Products used: Basic Grey PP Scarlett Letter, Pink Paislee die cut, 2 Crafty Chipboard leaves silver with smooch silver and rubbed with ink, Kaisercraft – cut out  embellishment swirl and flowers, Prima Butterflies, Misc flowers and ribbon. Basic Grey Alphas and Websters word embellishments.

  1. Michelle! That layout is just GORGEOUS! Stunning. Just think of all the PINK pages you are going to be able to do soon, how exciting! :-)

    I hope you don’t get sick, it’s horrible being sick when you’re pregnant and so much harder to fight off. Take lots of vitamin C and try and stay away from those yucky boys!!! LOL :-) Seriously though, I hope they both feel better soon. Poor Liam, not a fun way to spend his holidays :-(

  2. Wow Michelle – you really do pink WELL! It’s just faaaab!

    And yes – stay away from the boys. i have that yukky flu, and it’s NO fun!!
