I have had my first layout accepted by Creating Keepsakes US! (doing a little happy dance) I'm so thrilled. It's not actually going to be in the magazine itself, but in an Idea Book that Lisa Bearnson is working on at the moment. YAY I'm so happy about that! :)

Now I have some layouts to share. :)

This layout is about Tassy's bed, which used to be my bed, and I LOVE the bed. I'm so stoked that Tassy now sleeps in it. There are a few mistakes in the journalling, including the width of the bed, which is actually 2½ feet wide - it's very skinny. Have to get around to fixing the mistakes but I'm just not sure how to do it without messing up the journalling. So it will probably never get done, lol.
And one about Tassy and her new bike.We have had some great rain in Canberra this week. Dave's waiting for the grass to dry so he can mow it - it's about up to my knees and full of seed heads. It's been a bit cold too - well, cold for a wuss like me. I had a great time yesterday with Lea and Ollie going to some scrapbooking shops on the other side of town. I didn't buy TOO much, which was a good thing. Thanks for a lovely morning Lea!

Congrats on CK, Yvette!

Wish I still had my childhood bed too; I came home from school one day and it was gone; my Dad had sold it to someone at his work - oh well...your layouts look gorgeous (as always).
