Molly Update 4 months

OK - so this post is really photo heavy.. but I wanted Chris to see how Molly has grown... so here goes
Last weekend I was escaping the heat and decided to find the coolest room in the house.. my bedroom.... so lying there quietly with a book ... and look at the two ratbags that destroy my peace

Molly loves to chill out in your arms

Slightly blurred photo of a tongue that is designed to make your face wet...ekkk yep Bailee.. shut that mouth!

Love those back legs!

Trouble times two!

Finally some peace

And these photos were taken about 20 minutes ago... the kids have had friends stay over... so why not Mizz Molly.... yep.. Bella has graced us with her presence! She's been here for two hours and they havent stopped!!! She is here until Sunday. Whoop Whoop Puppy play

Sure she whispering "come and get me!!"

20 second break

And... into it again!!

Meanwhile.... the girls are getting along so nicely... I think it has hit everyone that Cam has only got a week to go before she heads off to boarding school!!! She NEVER lets Bee in her room!!

Saturated Canary - Aloha

Hello, back again with my final card using my now best ever favourite collection from Kaisercraft - Tropicana. This card (and collection) fits in well with the theme this month at Artfull Crafts "Summer Snaps". For many of us it was back to work on Monday.. but for a lucky few that are still at the beach soaking up the New Zealand sun, get those holiday pictures snapped and ready to create with!!!
Once again I used Tropicana paperTropical Collectables and copics to colour the Saturated Canary image Aloha.

Happy holidays wherever you are.

Delicious Doodles

Hello, well what a drama this post was! This is my 3rd attempt.... I just couldn't figure out why when I scheduled it for the 4th, why it wasn't sitting in my posts waiting to go live... well.. I managed to TWICE put the date as 4th of December.... not January!!! Anyway.. I made it here with the first challenge of 2013 for Delicious Doodles. We want to see as much sparkle & Shine as you can handle!
