the back-to-work scrap

It's my last weekend as a stay-home mum, and from next Monday onwards I'll be a working mum of two trying to balance my roles as an analyst, dairy farm (I'm still nursing No. 2), playmate, terrorizer and tear-wiper to No. 1, domestic maid to DH, church musician and still find the time to take my photos and scrap them. *phew* that's a handful!

So, to "celebrate" my going back to work, I created the following layout. It's a photo of DH and Ilias that I've always wanted to take, and there was such a sense of achievement as I finished the editing and all.

The papers from Fancy Pants' Hopscotch are so lovely! Even though it seemed to be made for a girl, I just love the distressed co-ordinating papers they have, with so much room for embellishments and just doing fun things with. I was surprised how the orange matched the desaturated tones of my photo so well.

This layout differed from the others in that, I used very little mediums and kept it very clean with lots of resting space. Initially I didn't go too crazy over the embellishments, in fact I was stuck at it for a while with only two sparse clusters in diagonal corners. As you can see, I went ballistics with the flowers and bling!

Some close-ups:

Love, love, love the shabby chic resins from Ingvild Bolme!

As usual, a sucker for Prima flowers. Can't get enough of those!

I'm currently working on a little surprise project for my DT assignment, and the inspiration came while I was in the toilet (yes, you heard right!). Keep your eyes peeled for more news in November!
