Making Monday!

A post to show what I've been making over the last two days! Now even though Ive been a collage artists for most of my life, actually starting a scrapbook seems to be harder than I thought! Ive had this scrapbook for many years, more than I care to admit, but last night I finally got over myself and started puting mine and my families life down in its pages.

I have been luckily enough to visit Paris, althought unlucky in the fact that when we did get to go, I was overcome with HUGE morning sickness, so the trip was spent walking slowly and feeling awful. Nethertheless I kept all my little tickets and postcards! hoarding is great when you are a crafter!
So this is my Paris page, photo wasnt taken in paris but thats cause I was so sick! still cute though, I used papers and embellishments from Little Yellow Bicyle!
Eiffel Towe stamp from a Tim Holtz set of mums.

On my darling group
we have a challange every month based on a sketch, and this is the sketch for the month of March! This is my first time using a sketch as a guide! but I enjoyed the challenge.
so here is the guide sketch and below it is my first ever page devoted to lily.

thats everything from me for the weekend!
I shall be back in the next day or so, to show my awesome gift from my mum.
