Hi lovelies! The week's just seem to be flying by at the moment. I keep meaning to sit down and be more consistent with blogging on this little space but 1 - I'm hopeless, 2 - by the time I get Z-man in bed and get myself ready for work its after 9pm and I'm brain dead (ironically though it's 10pm now lol) and 3 - I'm hopeless.
But all that aside I'm excited that I have a new layout to share! I've been sitting on this for a little while and been dying to post it. I love, love, love the new acetate sheet from Dear Lizzy's new Happy Place collection. I've used it in a mini, my planner and now a layout. It's all gone now :( But you can bet I'll be getting myself more!
OK enough blabber - the page!
Ahhh! Look at those colours! So, so pretty.
I teamed it up with gold foil using the Minc. I love that machine. It's seriously in my top 3 scrap-booking investments of all time (#1 being my sewing machine, lol and #2 being the computer). I could just gold foil everything.
So the story behind this page is Zack's new "computer only one day per week" rule I brought in a few weeks back. Truth be told he was only able to get on the computer on non-school nights (with the occasional weekday if he had a super-star day at tennis or swimming) but he was just so addicted to it. It's so easy to just let him get on the computer (because let's face it - him on the computer gave me quiet time,..) but it was all he could talk about. So I'm forcing him take a step back; there are more important things in life than mining diamonds in Minecraft. Now he can have the laptop to watch movies in my room (because I don't have a TV in here) but that's it.
And it's been a good change. He's hanging out with me more which I love. Using his imagination more. Drawing, painting, reading, playing outside. Oh and talking, talking, talking, talking. Sometimes the talking never stops, haha.
And there you go. First layout using the new Dear Lizzy line and I'm totally in love with Happy Place. Colours of everything are just HAPPY!
Hope your weekend is an amazing one. Thanks so much for stopping by!
Take care, Em xo
