bird is the word - life - live

Hi.. well can you believe i have done another challenge!!i can hardly believe it myself!!
when i had the papers out from the last layout i did, i thought i would do another layout with them, so this photo of my third child grabbed my eye and i had to use it.. now i really love how scrappers use the small photos.... but when i see the faces of my gorgeous daughters i just want to put a big photo on the layout!!
the challenge from http://birdisthewordchallenge.blogspot.com/2011/05/may-22nd-life-live-living.html was to use the word life or live or living..and i used the sketch for the layout too.. so i thought reminding my daughter about how we have one life to live was a good idea as she is making plans to go overseas soon... i used the Kaiser Chapter One papers again, with a lovely Scrapmatts window frame arch.. i hope they are at the Scrapbooking Expo in Brisbane this weekend.. i need to get me some more of these beautiful chipboard pieces..



my layout...
and a just a bit of a close up.. ( i love Hannah's eyes...) thanks for poppin in and also i really appreciate all the comments...they give me so much encouragement!!xx

  11. Your LO is really beautiful, as are your daughters eyes. I am always a sucker for LO's that have black in them, I love a little black, it adds dynamic contrast.

  23. Hi Lizzy ... thanks for the kind comment on my blog, that was very nice of you ...

    I'm in total agreement about the large photos ... I'm at the point where I prefer to put a 5x7 on a LO rather than 3 or 4 small photos ...

    This pic of your daughter is absolutely stunning! You've done a wonderful job of showcasing it ... the paper choices are perfect and you've got the right amount of embellies ... fabulous!!!
