A closer view of the hearts on the page
It is a little hard to pick up the embossed polka dots on the white paper. When I first discovered stamps it wasn't to colour at all, that came a bit later, my first use of them was for making my own background paper which I did lots of once so it was great fun to do this again by pulling out this gorgeous polka dot set from PTI.
And finally I'm not sure what challenge this would fit into, maybe the great Northwest, but I'm sure somewhere in Forks there would be and owl in a tree somewhere, maybe looking down as Edward walked away from Bella in the forest, who knows. I actually did this because I had purchased the digi stamp a couple of weeks back and not had the opportunity to use it yet so while I was on a crafty roll and my desk was messy anyway I thought I would pull it out and play, that and the fact that the owl is soo cute and I seem to have a thing for owls. The yellow behind the owl is vellum, it doesn't show really well here but looks quite pretty with the light shining through it.
OK, that's is it for me, now it's time to move along to Laura's
blog to see what tasty creative Twilighty treat she has in store for you.

Scraperlicious challenge number four-change.
As soon as I read on the blog that this months challenge was about change I knew I wanted to use this photo. When I looked at it the first time after printing I was amazed at how much things have changed in the last 17 years between Jackson's birth and the day this photo was taken(My nieces wedding)He from a tiny baby that Mum used to cuddle on her lap to a teenage boy that stands a good head taller than her. and her... well she has had many changes in that time, both happy and sad, good and bad and then there is ever effecting time. I am surprised that I was able to fit the journaling in,and me not usually a big journaler, could have written double what I have here, not easy to condense so much about their lives into a few short paragraphs.
A closer view, you can see here the tone on tone border strip which doesn't show clearly in the top photo.

A closer view of some of the stamping and elements, the heart is acrylic backed with p paper and stamped with the family stamp from the hero arts original definitions set with white stazon. The quote is from an Ali Edwards set embossed with butter zing(love this colour, so soft and well, buttery)
Something a little different from my usual layouts. Used lots of stamping and embossing. It was also good to use older products, the PP is one that has been out for quite some time from MM(except for the background, it's MM too but not so old) and the butterfly and definition stamps from hero arts have been in my drawer for years. the other stamps are Ali Edwards by technique Tuesday and Heidi Swapp. I even used vellum, something I haven't done in ages. It's one of those layouts that looks better IRL, or maybe it's just my photography.
Yesterday we took Seamus for a walk down to the swamp to catch tadpoles (yes, we are a catch and release family, at least they will be released soon, it's good for the kids to see the changes the little tadpole's bodies go through to become a frog, takes longer than a kiss from a Princess,lol)
After catching them with him for a while I layed down under his beautiful wattle tree and enjoyed the feeling of the spring sunshine.

Oh and I decided while I've been typing this that I need to put a tab on the top of the photo block with a date or something on it, mmmm, may be a bit more work for this one. Cheers,
