Twiddleybitz Life Book

Well, I said I would be back at the end of last week........sorry I am a little late!
Before I start......don't forget that Scrapbookit have a design team call out at the moment. Head on over to the Scrapbookit blog by clicking Scrapbookit above or by clicking the link in the right column to find out how to apply. You have until March 14th!

In September last year my sister had her second little girl. She was born in Virginia Beach, USA. Last weekend was my first time meeting my new little niece.......she is just divine!! As I have done with my other nieces/nephews I have made them something when they are born.
I chose to make a Twiddleybitz Life Book. I apologise for the photos.....I didn't have any luck snapping good shots!
I used a variety of photos from her birth in the hospital to some of the first photos of her smiling.
I only completed the first section of the book and have since handed the rest over to my sister to add her own touches to the book.
I best be off.......I am heading to Canberra on a Grade 5/6 camp with 115 children tomorrow.....I need all the sleep I can get :)

P.S. Don't forget the DT Call for Scrapbookit!

Come Along - We Would Love YOU to Join Us!!

Back to School has definitely hit our household and we have hit the ground running! Besides going back to school we have celebrated the little fellas 6th Birthday, had my sister and her family visit from America and celebrated my nieces birthday whilst she was here......alongside another celebration for the big 6 year old.
Sadly, scrapbooking has taken a back seat as I have been preparing birthday cakes!!!
My boy had a pool party with a few of his friends from school the day after his birthday. I made this swimming pool cake.....probably not my most outstanding however he loved it and so did all of his little friends:)

This weekend, just gone, we had yet another birthday celebration with the family. It was such a lovely day. My sister, her hubby and my two gorgeous nieces were here from America for the weekend - my boy and my eldest niece and goddaughter celebrated their birthdays together. Boy did they have fun! I made the 6 and my sister did the castle cake - so clever!

So now I may have more of a chance to get back into the world of scrapbooking!!

WHY DON'T YOU COME AND JOIN US? You are probably wondering what I am on about. Joanne from Scrapbookit has put a Design Team Call out. How exciting! I would be so excited if you joined in with me.
