I managed to get a couple of layouts finished over the weekend. Do you ever get into moods for creating? I tend to go through periods where I just want to make cards and others when I just want to scrap. Lately I've been in a real scrapping mood and have managed to get some pages completed. I've also been trying to try new things with my layouts. This one has lots of layered paper and lots of tilted bits - things I don't do very often!
It also has lots of blue, so I thought I'd enter it in Just Add Ink's latest challenge, which is to Just Add Blue. JAI are raising awareness of the effects of depression and mental illness in the community, which is a fantastic cause to get behind. I know a few people who battle with these issues every day - and it often is a battle for them.
This layout celebrates Hudson's first day at Kindy (preschool). He's only 3 but he was eligible for early entry, and the Kindy insisted they wanted him to start. He loves going there and the Kindy have made everything so easy for him and for me.
I included his bag in these photos of his first day as it is a bit special to me. It is the same bag that Alex used when he went to Kindy. It's a cute little Bob the Builder suitcase and it's unique - I've never seen another like it so it never gets mixed up with the other bags.
