I feel inspired....

I managed 3 layouts this week, which is good going for me. Even though I haven't scrapped in a while I have been blog hopping quiet a bit when I have a moment at work, or on the train in to work. There is just so much inspiration and creativity out there it is unbelievable. I have realised that I am normal when it comes to this hobby. What I mean by normal is that too much is never enough... We all have the same addiction and love for our family, photo's and stash..
The first layout I did this week to get the mojo going was a design from Becky Fleck's Page Map site, I can't copy the 'map' here but it was from the September 2008 archives.


These photo's where taken in April this year, my father had just arrived from South Africa for a visit and it snowed. Please don't laugh at our snowman, at least we tried and had a good time collecting as much snow as we could before it all melted.

Here are the other two layouts I did yesterday.






I was happy to use some of my 7Gypsies stash on this layout of Aidan. I love 7 Gypsies, it is my favourite product but I find it sometimes hard to use.

My dad flew back to South Africa on Saturday, he submitted his visa application to join us here, so please hold thumbs and pray that his Visa is granted as we missing him already. The one thing that was very tough last year was leaving him behind in South Africa with my sister as he has been living with us since 2001 and has become such a integral part of our family's life. Especially the kids. We hoping to hear the outcome of his visa application at the end of the week....
Until then ...
