Another Sidewalk LO :)))

Have I mentioned how much I LOVE this collection from October Afternoon?? It works so well with all types of photos and blends with most colours. Although it is quite 'girlie' I'm sure some of the papers will work well on 'boy' layout too (watch out for my next page). This photo of my girls was taken on Sophie's 7th birthday at 7am. She had just woken up Natalie and the boys so that we could start her celebration. In our family it is the tradition to have chocolate crackle cake and pressies in mum and dads bed on your birthday. We also read out a special card listing all the achievements and milestones that have occurred over the past year. Sophie couldn't wait to get started and you can see the excitement writen all over her little face. her sister just wanted time to wake up (or another hours sleep!)
This page is for Once Upon a Sketch. The challenge is to write at least two sentences on why you like to scrap as well as basing your page on their current sketch. Moments like these are exacly why I love to scrap. They would otherwise be forgotten with the passage of time and whilst I also record big milestones and events it is the everyday moments that are especially precious to me.
