You know that layout I keep promising... well I am FINALLY posting it to share! Here it is;

Family Layout
Patterned paper - Crate Paper, Die-cut - Crate Paper, Stickers - Crate Paper, Masking tape - craft supply, Pen - Sharpie.

Not sure the anticipation lives up to the layout. It's only a relatively simple design, but it's another photo scrapped so that's the main thing! This pic was taken on James' last day at his old work. All the family gathered there for breakfast as a little send off of sorts.

I must say that it has been a while since I've been so excited about a Crate Paper line, but this collection, the Restoration collection, is absolutely gorgeous and I have really enjoyed working with it so far. I think it's the Kraft undertones that do it for me!

I have another project to share. Ollie's First Birthday card. Yep, you read that right. Ollie is turning one. Tomorrow. A whole year passed in the blink of an eye. It feels like just yesterday that I bought home my sweet little newborn baby boy. Ollie is a real little boy now, so full of charm, and love, and laughter. He's one. I seriously cannot believe it, moreso that I survived as a mother of two (LOL!), but also that he has grown so fast!

Anyway, I best share the card before I waffle on too much! LOL!

Happy Birthday Ollie Card
Cardstock - Bazzill, Patterned paper - Making Memories, Alphas - American Crafts, Die-cuts - Making Memories, Chipboard - Making Memories, Twine - Papertrey Ink, Machine thread - craft supply, Font - unknown.

Given that we are going to the zoo tomorrow to celebrate Ollie's special day I decided to use Animal Crackers for Ollie's card. It is my favourite ever collection and so perfect for my little man.

Speaking of Ollie, I can hear him waking up, so I'm outta here! Thanks for dropping by! Will be back soon with lots of birthday photos!
