Isn't She Lovely...

"Isn't She Lovely"
HUGE GINORMOUS HELLO!!! to all my friends !!!
I realise I've been MIA for a while now - there's just been SO much going on in life - there just never seems to be enough time for crafting - let-alone-Scrapping and blogging, I'm afraid to say has certainly taken a 'back seat' lately :( 
I do have 2 pieces of news to share... First and foremost is that I have secured an admin role for work until 31st December - so that means I should have just a wee bit of 'c-ash' to afford to upkeep my hobby LOL.  The second piece of news is that , not 1, but 2 of my layouts have been accepted by an Australian scrapbooking magazine for publication later this year.  I'm totally thrilled, and just a bit excited too.  Once published I will be able to share the layouts, and closies with you all.
Sooo....,here I am, back to scrap Yahoo :)   and.... I've set a goal to blog at least once a week - for the next 12 weeks - at least until the Amazing Race over at Scrapbooking Top 50 is finished...coz I'm entering and I've set myself the challenge to complete at least 1 layout a week....all my fingers and toes are crossed that I will have the time management skill to be able to fit all in :)
Well enough of that...this LO is of my elder DGD, radiant smiling face that she has.  I was inspired firstly by this month's RECIPE challenge over at Purple Pumpkin...as well as by the August sketch over at Sketches With A Twist:

And since it was 'open' song/title over at Scrap That Song...I decided this song fitted Paige just beautifully.  This is one of my favourite Stevie Wonder songs.

Quote of the Day

butterfly kisses

My fairy

Your fairy is called Columbine Goblinglitter
She is a bringer of riches and wealth.
She lives in mushroom fields and quiet meadows.
She is only seen in the light of a shooting star.
She wears lilac and purple like columbine flowers. She has gentle green wings like a butterfly.
