A quick show and tell of the remainder of my Feb DT projects for ATDML. We were given papers from various My Mind's Eye ranges.

A little bit of paint splattering on this one.  Made using the left over scraps and a little bit of paint splattering.

Photo is of Gracia's birthday trip to the beach last April.

Love this photo of Gracia, Hannah and Sophie when they went to Malta last summer. 

Gracia and Megan fooling around and pulling faces!  I love that Gracia has so much fun with her friends.

Doilies cut with Silhouette, punched butterflies and stickers from coordinating sticker sheet.

Reasons to be cheerful:-

1.  Gracia is home for Easter.

2. So looking forward to next weekend.

3. Off to bed with a nice cup of tea, The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest (on my tablet) to read and a hot water bottle.



Happy scrapping :-)

Out of the mouths of babes.

I was going to write about a completely different 'precious' this month but yesterday, whilst tidying my desk found a little book that is very precious to me. 

You see, when Gracia was small, I mean three or four, we used to ask her to sum up her day and we then wrote it down in little books. This one is from when she was three and I love the way everyday life is observed from her point of view, from the time Rosie (our naughtiest dog ever ) 'eated' her tea to the time she had new shoes and Mummy said 'no skipping or jumping in them'. 

These little books really are so precious to me because they sum up a happy carefree childhood filled love and laughter where the simplest of deeds is an adventure.  

Reasons to be cheerful:

1. The memories that come flooding back each page I read of these little books.

2. How happy Gracia was and how much she enjoyed life.

3. Keeping these little books for when Gracia's future children are able to read them.
