Final farewell!

Monday, August 6, 2012

It's amazing how quickly time passes when we are busy! The past twelve months have been no exception to the rule as it has flown by and now my unexpected bundle of joy is 5 months old. It has also been a wonderful 24 months of being part of the Pebbles Inc design team which has finally come to an end. I knew once Edward entered the world I'd have to scale back on my crafting time so it was with a rather heavy heart that I said good bye to Pebbles, the wonderful Lynn Ghahary and the amazing design team.

My final layout!
And the one and only photo of myself as an expectant mum.

I'm so glad I was able to play with the beautiful Country Picnic collection for one last time as it is everything you could ask for in a collection... lots of Kraft, beautiful patterns and gorgeous embellishments... yum!

It doesn't happen often... scrapping myself and 'the farmer'!

This layout goes way, way back in February but escaped without being posted to my own blog. Another gorgeous Kraft based collection from Pebbles called With Love.

This is my favourite photo of 'the farmer' as I don't get them very often and when I do he is usually being silly or trying desperately to avoid the shot altogether. Very uncooperative!!!

So that is it! My last share using Pebbles Inc, although I doubt I will be able to stay away from their beautiful collections as the latest reveals from CHA are divine. Also, a little shout out to the wonderful Kim Jeffress from Brisbane, Australia who is now on the Pebbles team... congratulations Kim!!!

From farm to you...

    Your hubby reminds me of mine, always messing around when I want to take a photo. My kids are the same way now, too.
    Enjoy little Teddy!!! You are going to blink, and he will be off to school! My Ben starts this fall.. is it bad that I am sad to send him off? The house is going to be so quiet and lonely with him gone all day.
