Patrick's Tattoo.....

Hello there!  Well I am happy getting back to Scrapping.... Yes it has been a while.  I am really trying to get my Thailand album in order and after much deliberation, I am going to follow a Project Life format.  I have way too many photos that I would like to include and I am not huge on lots of journaling. So I figure the smaller page protectors of PL will suit what I have in mind.  I have also already completed a few LO that will help with the flow (as well as use the 12 x12 protectors...lol)  AND I have been collecting SO MANY travel thingys that I NEED to use them all!!!
I really LOVE this LO and LOOK 3 PHOTOS!!!! so not me!!! I debated on the pinkish paper for this LO but it just seemed to work and tie in with the summery feel.  Patrick nagged for a tattoo and knew exactly what he wanted.  Lachlan and Patrick have been fascinated by Jamaica since the movie "COOL RUNNINGS" and they plan to travel there when they are older.
He wanted his back to burn so when the tattoo washed off he would still have the imprint.
Scrapbook Boutique have all the products used in this LO as well as details on how to as well.


thanks for popping in :)

Little Lachie Lou Lou

 Our pet name for our 3rd child :)  I really used up nearly EVERY SHEET of the Jilibean Soup Chilled cucumber pack AND the LilyBee pack too on my last couple of projects!! Such gorgeous versatile colours!!!  You probably can't see from this terrible photo (must take another one!!!) but I have framed the photo in acetate, so it looks like it's floating..... I love this effect and use it a bit with my cards too!
We still call Lachlan ( he is 18) "Lou Lou" but not to his face LOL!!!!

Here is MY take on the challenge......


Not very Easter Themed I know, but I took my inspiration from the colours this month. That is the beauty of our challenges, no exact rules, The pic can inspire you anyway you like!!!
I am SO critical of EVERY PHOTO that is taken of me and it is a RARE day that there is a photo of me that I LIKE!
I had just been to the hairdressers this day and Christie snapped this photo and YES the stars aligned...... I like the colour one but I wanted Black and White for this LO.
As much as I hate photos of myself, I really do have to get in front of the camera and actually scrap myself otherwise I know I'll regret it!
I think I have used nearly every scrap of the MME Spread your wings and fly pack. 

Thanks for popping in and now head on off to 
Lovely Linda's blog
