I am excited to be hanging about on the Scrapmatts team for another year. This team is such a fun one to be a part of and it helps keep my chipboard love satisfied ;)
With our January DT challenge to create a layout featuring ourselves, I figured it was the perfect time to do a reflective 2013 layout... which does feature me, as per our strict guideline lol Although being the one behind the camera most of the time, most of my photos are selfies. This one was a rare one taken by my hubby... at my request, with my little miss exhausted after some Boxing Day socialising.
My 2013 was amazing. I loved every part of it and cannot even think of a negative. Motherhood sure is something!
Isn't it fascinating how our style seems to change over time. I was thinking as I did these pages how my pages have become far more minimalistic than they were in the past. I still do the occasional heavily embellished page, but these days I tend to keep things simple and no longer have flowers on everything lol This style is easier to put in albums too ;)
We had a big milestone in December. Our little Lily turned 1. Cannot believe how quick that went. However a few days before her birthday I had a little fun doing this home smash cake photo shoot. I am by no means a photographer but I'm pretty happy with some of the happy snaps I got on the day and she seemed to have fun.
When it comes to altering chipboard, because I so often scrapbook with Lily nearby, I can be limited on my methods so washi tape is such a perfect and quick solution to altering chipboard. I love the way the little banner turned out with a few strips of washi.
