Been Shopping...

Hey everyone,
It's been a while between posts. Been busy working and yes... scrapping. Although I can't share anything I've been working on. I actually thought I'd consider submitting to the annual Scrapbooking Memories Masters this year. I have absolutely no expectations of getting anywhere... but an honourable mention might be a nice surprise at best. It's more for the challenge for myself since it's been a bit of a quiet period for me with scrapping due to the exhaustion pregnancy has caused. I have 3 projects done... with the canvas left to do but time is running out. So we'll see if I make it in time. I am loving my 3 layouts so far though.

But until then, here is a quick sneak of one of my A2Z scraplets DT layouts:

Now onto something more related to my post title. Today my lovely parents took me for a trip to Ikea. How I love Ikea! Wish it wasn't an hour or so away from my house lol

Thanks to the cruel addictive nature of Pinterest and my obsession with designing a stylish nursery that may even be pin worthy (LOL), I had some ideas for some accessories I wanted from Ikea. So I kinda had this idea of getting a mini chandelier after seeing one in a nursery on Pinterest. Crazy... cos what baby needs a light fitting that fancy. Well I didn't get a chandelier but I got a pretty flashy light fitting anyway:
Isn't it pretty? And how it will sparkle. At least its yet another feminine touch to my blue nursery. I also got a mirror that looks like something straight out of a fairy tale:
Isn't it gorgeous? haha Totally non-essential nursery items but it really is looking awesome. I did get some normal baby items too like cot bedding and rugs etc. I just hope the splashes of pink go well with the blue, white and dark wood colours.

Now for a recent bump picture, stolen from my mum's facebook after their visit today:

Anyway, hope you're having a great weekend. Will share some scrappy stuff in the near future. Or at least, following a retreat on the weekend of the 10th. Can't wait!
