Can You Keep A Secret?

Saturday, July 31, 2010

Sorry, I don't have any secrets to share - it just happened to be the title of my layout! Very fitting as my little man is having a wonderful time 'sharing secrets' with us... he comes up with the most amazing little tid-bits to secretly whisper into our ears. The other day he came up to me and said "Mum, I've got a wheely gweat secret... then he whispered shhhhh... crocodiles bite your head clean off!" What the...? LOL!
Okay, remember my New Years resolution that I keep going back to... Try All Things New! Bunting and lace have hit the page! Bunting has been extremely popular for the past six months or so, and I've still yet to use it on my layouts... until now!
I very rarely ever grace my pages with lace but it was in my DT kit for Scrapville's August 'Fancy Pants' Pack and was begging to be used... how cute is that lace butterfly? I mounted it onto stiff clear acetate so that it would hold its shape.
This is such a delightfully pretty pack and one that I never thought I'd use for a 'little boy', however, sometimes you've just got to step outside the box and see what you can come up with! The Fancy Pants pack will be available in-store at Scrapville from August 1 onwards, or you can arrange for a subscription by sending an email to www.scrapville@iinet.net.au
From farm to you...

  4. Your LO is soooo gorgeous! The banners and lace work great(especially with the lace bow in the little girls hair) but it could work for so many other occasions as well. Thanks for the inspiration! :o)
