My Little Love Bugs
Things continue to be busy here at home and also with helping run Let's Scrap. I always plan on doing lots of scrapping but then life takes over and I don't get anything done. Last month my oldest Son Andrew and his family, including my grandchildren Jacob and Ava moved down to Nova Scotia. I am really missing all of them especially little Jacob. I was used to seeing him a couple of times a week so am going through Grandchildren withdrawal. Ava turned 1 month old a couple of days before they left and Katie brought the two of them over to spend some time with me. I was thrilled to see that Ava was wearing the little outfit I had given her as a gift. So of course I had to take some photo's.
I finally finished a layout last night for a hidden journaling Design Team challenge that Lynn posted for us on Let's Scrap. The photo's I used were the ones I took the day they visited. Jacob looks like he was giving his sister a loving touch but he was actually trying to get a ladybug button off little Ava's headband. He had seen me attach it and decided he should have it instead. I laugh when ever I see the photo of the two of them because he is acting so sweet and innocent while trying to sneak that button for himself.
I used a Let's Scrap sketch for the layout. I found a free file on the internet with the cute letters with the ladybugs on them I used in my title and I bought a couple of ladybug files from Country Clip Art for the little bug embellishments. When I printed the ladybugs off the colors were very faded, probably because my ink is getting low, so I used my markers to color them again. I pop dotted them in a couple of spots to make some of them show up more.
Hopefully I will get a chance to do some more scrapping soon and I won't be away for so long. I hope all of you have a Happy Scrappy weekend.
