Daisy and Tom is a shop in London where I wandered in and fell in love with this cardigan when Daughter-Two's sister was little. It was a sad day when, after nearly 20 years of use, it was finally outgrown by the youngest.
Who knows, maybe one day it will be used again by a family member - and I will be able to make a page about that!
It was the perfect use for the Shine On kit which has arrived at The Lilypad (and is half price for Wednesday): And for the pocket scrapper
It's BYOC time at The Lilypad! It is wonderful that it comes along just in time for NSD. Lynn has three beautiful kits titled "Adventure Calls" (Elements, Papers, Journal Cards) as her contribution to the collection this month. Lynn's Creative Team used the kits for a fantastic array of layouts. Look and see!!! Each layout is linked to Lynn's gallery so you can see all the details about each page. Donna aka djp332 "The Missing Piece" Lynn's kits work beautifully with the
I just spent half an hour of an April morning on a 'digital declutter' project to scrap the contents of an old folder Daughter-Two brought home at the end of the last school year. Here in New Zealand, every 11 and 12 year old has had to take "tech" classes, sometimes at their own school or sometimes - as in Daughter-Two's case - they are bused to a tech centre that takes the children from a number of surrounding schools. When I was a kid, the girls did sewing and cooking and
It's the first of the month, which means this week's new releases are part of the "Build Your Own Collection" (BYOC) event at The Lilypad.
All the designers have been creating with the same gorgeous Spring palette. 'Rummaging' among my files I discovered a special photo of Daughter-Two reading from one of our photobooks to a soft toy we made together: Luckily for me, with this summer's photos still to scrap, it worked with photos from the beach as well: ~ Lynn #photoshop #B
I love both traditional "arty" scrapping and documentary style / pocket scrapping, so this week's new products to arrive at The Lilypad are some of my own favourite creating supplies. And I had the perfect use for the Madras kit - grabbing a photo off Google Streetview in order to scrap about how we started going to "hot yoga for cool kiwis". We are still usually the least bendy and stretchy of everyone there but we hang out at the back of the room and are well and truly addi
It is officially Autumn here in New Zealand, although we are still having some wonderfully hot and sunny days.
But I do feel that I was robbed of summer after a disastrous attempt at a summer break in the sunny North.
After spending Christmas with family we got quite a way on our drive North before The Husband admitted to a nagging doubt that he hadn't actually booked the holiday home. A search of his laptop confirmed that we had nowhere to go, so we turned tail and head
Hello again! Diane here to bring you some inspiration using Lynn's newest BYOC (Build Your Own Collab) contributions to the big sale happening at The Lilypad this week-end (March 4 - 6). Lynn's Creative Team has been busy using her Daily Delight Papers, Daily Delight Elements and Daily Delight Cards in an exciting array of layouts. The colors are so pretty and lend themselves to a variety of subjects and styles. Let's take a look at a few! Sondra (Rosemarythyme) sets a che
BYOC = 'build your own collaboration" and it's always fun to see what the different designers have come up with when given a palette to work from.
This month's palette is absolutely gorgeous, and such a happy set of colours that I ended up with a collection called "Daily Delight'. It has to be said, my Dad was not looking too delighted as a toddler in this favourite photo of him .... But plenty of delight at our place through the years, including at their happy place (the
It's an exciting time around here for our youngest who is heading off to High School (as they do here in New Zealand at 13).
It took a long time to find a dress for her graduation from primary school (aka elementary school) at the end of last year, because even though she is taller than me there is no way she could fit a woman's dress from the local shops. I finally found a glittery moon and stars dress online - very appropriate given her love of astronomy and astro-physics
My Dad was a keen photographer and we loved to see the photos he took. But his format of choice was the slide, or colour transparency. Which meant that, instead of getting packets of photos to pore over, we had to wait until the special evenings when he would pin a white sheet up and pull out the slide projector and the boxes of slides. In between, we could use the little 'pre-viewer' designed to allow you to check out a photo before you projected it onto the sheet. But, trut
