Kaisercraft Sat Sketch #3 May

This is my take on the  Kaisercraft Sat Sketch #3 May.  I have used the paper from Magnolia Grove collection - Luxury x 2 and Lavish and Classic.  The butterflies were cut out of the Timeless collection paper and painted with pale pink.  From Kaisercraft I have also used the rub-on Family and  a rhinestone flourish - elegant ice.

The photo is of my husbands Poppa ( he's the baby in arms).  I love collecting old family photo's to see where the resemblances come from in my children.  It's a beautiful thing!

Kaisercraft Sat Sketch #2 May

Wow!  I had so much fun doing this.  I couldn't help but shrink it down and play with the sketch.  These two kids are the best of friends.  It is wonderful to see them play together.
I have used from Kaisercraft :-  Miss Nelly paper pad, pearls, pearl strips, flowers, a sparklet, paint - dusty pink and mini alpha's.   I have also used basil, a rhinestone heart, a pin, a doily, leaves flower/bows and butterfly and flower punches.  Again, thanks for the inspiration!

Kaisercraft Sat Sketch #1 May

This is my take on the Kaisercraft Sat Sketch for May #1.  I was dying to scrap this photo of my beautiful daughter running in paradise like gardens.  The paper seemed to go perfectly with the photo.  I have used from Kaisercraft :- the Miss Nelly papers and rub-on's, paper from the Pet's Paradise collection, pearl strips, pearls, a pearl brad and flowers.  I have also used cream basil, flowers, homemade flowers, diamond dust, leaves, stitching and a pin stick.  Thanks for the inspiration Kaisercraft. 

And for some reason I cannot get the little photo's to go the correct way.  Sigh, computers are confusing!!  So sorry that they are on their side.

I know this is not scrapbooking but I have had soooo much trouble finding a nice winter dress in the shops for my 5 year old.  Every thing is just too short!!  I hate being dictated to by the shops in what to dress my kids in.  I want her to stay sweet and innocent for as long as possible.  So I bit the bullet and with my Mum's guidance sewed this up.  It took almost two days but boy do I feel satisfied.  I bought the top and necklace from Target but the rest is all my own work.  I feel satisfied and happy with the results.
