Monday Moments

Two posts today - playing catch up!

A scrapbook page for the challenge at The Memory Nest to share today.  And - exciting news - I've won a guest design spot there! Wow! Am super thrilled to do this, scrapbooking is my first love and it will be fantastic to see my pages - yes, two pages - featured in July.

So on to today's page.  A two photo layout and just perfect for a couple of photos of my oldest grandson doing what he always does when he visits - bake chocolate chip cakes. He's been doing this ever since he was three when I used to look after him one day a week and now he's coming up to ten and still asks - bit of a tradition.  I'm wondering when he'll think it's not cool to do this any more and keeping my fingers crossed it won't be for a long, long time.

Needless to say he now does it all virtually unaided and these photos encapsulate that. 

Journalling is always important to my layouts and I used it to frame the elements on this page.  I went searching through my stash looking for stickers and alphas that were appropriate and found what I wanted on three different Christmas themed sheets.  Just goes to show you shouldn't be too dismissive of themed supplies.  They are a good investment and can be used right outside of what they were originally intended for.

Oh and the hearts were a necessary addition as I made a mistake in my journalling and needed to cover it over.  Really liking them though and so pleased I went wrong!

Papers: Bo Bunny, Back to Basics &  Double Dot; doodlebug, kraft in color
Stamps: My Mind's Eye, the sweetest thing; Daisy Bucket Designs, Amazing You; Technique Tuesday, Beautiful by Ali Edwards
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black; StazOn, jet black
Punch: Martha Stewart, heart
Alpha: ep, tis the season
Stickers: Fancy Pants, Merry Little Christmas; ep, Reflective Christmas
Embellishments: Papermanis, adhesive pearls 

Thanks for looking today.  Hope you'll come again.
