Prima Cards, Get Creative & Scrap Therapy

Trying to find the time to play along with challenges is a rare at the moment - but so needed - for down time.
Tonight after a long day at rehearsals...I came home and dropped everything and created.
Putting 'stuff' away and housework can wait until tomorrow!

Three or more photos
This was fun putting together this playful photos of my three girls.


Here's a little forum challenge
Scrap an older Christmas (or celebration) photo/s. It has to be a photo/s of someone/something that has significantly changed... (Like Paige here who is two years old) This scene was so much fun to make!! Paige was a cheeky happy little thing - I love this memory of her riding her new bike with a little Santa apron that Grandma made. Funnily enough - the Tellytubby slippers were the real winner that Christmas morning! LOL -the bike ran second!

Smaller background paper: Basic Grey Dasher Snowfall Polar Blue
