Can you believe it is already July...

I cannot believe that it is July already !! We have been in the UK now going on 8 months, it feels like just the other day we were packing up our lives in South Africa and getting ready to move. The last couple of months have actually been a blur, I think it may have something to do with the fact that it took 6 weeks from the time I got the signed job offer to us getting on a plane headed for Heathrow. When I look back now, it was amazing how Sean and I actually coped with everything. Things are settling down for us now as a family and we just loving every moment being here and making this our home.

I thought I would share two of my LO's that I have done recently. I have made a commitment to myself to do more meaningful layouts, even if they are simple. I really want to capture my thoughts and feelings versus doing just pretty LO's all the time.

Emma is such a little miss, she loves the camera and loves posing for me. She thinks it is a game to see the photo I have just taken immediately on the LCD screen of the camera. Yesterday when I showed her this LO I had done of her she said ' Wow ! Mummy that is beautiful !! '

The LO above is my eldest son Liam, this is the type of LO I want to do all the time when it comes to the journaling, this is what I call meaningful journaling. The journalling portray's my feelings and thoughts.

I joined Shimelle's 'My Freedom' online class today. I can't wait to get going on this, and yes I am going to commit to doing it now and not leaving it for later! I have decided that because I am on a stash diet I am going to make my album from my own stash too.

Glad to hear you are settling in, those layouts are beautiful. Hope you enjoy Shimelles class, I made the same promise about using my own stash and then an album jumped into my shopping basket lol! x

Love both your lo's Bee! The colours on Emma's lo are so bright and cheerful and the red, black and white works perfect for Liam's boy page!
