Well, here it is another year, and i hope to post more often here this year – and to visit my friend’s blogs as well as new creative blogs. 🙂 And a few more resolutions that i’m not doing too badly with so far …
My friend Alicia Redshaw has an awesome scrapbook store in Australia called Scrapbook Fantasies (I haven’t been, but I rely on some very reliable eye witness testimony) and she also runs the challenge blog 123 Challenge Blog where their challenge this month is to combine:
Here is my take on the challenge – where I was not afraid to use YELLOW in bulk, lol. Loved working with the colour. My texture was created using stencils and white gesso.
Super-love this photo of my son Chris Pennington and his girlfriend Carley Hayward before her high school prom:
The layout was for a sketch challenge at Canadian Scrapbookier Magazine. I used: Prima Marketing Inc. Lyric Collection Pocata paper, Recollections Flower, various scraps and embellishments from my stash.

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted, and what better posting than one of the happiest days of my life – the day our son Chris Pennington was born.

Here is the mood board at Scrap Around the World:
Here is the sketch at Sketchabilities that was also inspirational for this layout. I gave it a quarter-turn and scrapped my little bundle of joy!!!
