Perfect the way you are.

Hi there!

Our daughter arrived safe after her delayed flight and we were all in bed by 2.30 this morning!
She's still sleeping off the jet lag, so I used the time to get crafty with the fabulous inspiration picture from Less is more.
I added a pinch of neon yellow for the color challenge at The play date cafe.


The little bows were punched using my first punch I bought... ever... more than 10 years ago I think!
The image is a digital one from Shery K designs. Sentiment from hero arts.





                                                 


Thanks so much for visiting me... I do appreciate it and your comments inspire me!

...SO SERIOUSLY....who could possible walk in these shoes without blowing out a shin bone or two??? Awesome silhouette image too!

Love the dramatic pop of flourescent green - works perfectly with the shoes!!!

Having the kidlets safe and sound at home, all snuggled in their beds, has got to be the best feeling ever for a parent! Enjoy!!!
