One last time! + Winner!

Sunday, July 8, 2012

Saying goodbye at the end of a design team term is never easy as the friends you make are hard to leave behind. However, with today's social media it makes keeping in touch with everyone that little bit easier. My term at My Little Shoebox finished just before I was due to bring our new little man into this world and although I would have loved to have continued for another season, it was time to stand aside and let fresh faces join Helen Chu's wonderful team.

Now, I never really had the opportunity to say farewell or post my final layout as Teddy entered the world three weeks early and since then I have been a little busy! So, I thought it was about time I caught up on my projects and posted this one last layout... and I would have to say, it's one of my favourites using My Little Shoebox products.

My daughter and one of her horses 'Freckles' spending a lazy Sunday afternoon together.

  14. I had to clip this LO several times - once for my "circles" board, once for my "embellishment" board, & once for the creative use of those tiny flowers again. Thanks for all the inspiration!
