My shadow and I are having a blast. You think she would be sick of me as we are together 24/7, but she loves me and wants to be with me every moment of the day (and sometimes night!) So I am not fighting it any more and making the most of each cuddle and moment until she goes to school beginning of next year. Here below you can see she even came with me in search of my PCF photo for this week and was tickled when I gave her a real camera to work with!

Today was Wednesday and cooking day! Lamington cup cakes! Katie is becoming quite the little chef!

Now for the scrapping news this week and remember to please click on the page for credits! This week Kathryn Wilson is in the Spotlight at Oscraps with a fabulous mini kit for FREE and her stunning grunge brushes give away! The theme? Trash your LO!

A second page using the stunning Oscraps collab "Otono" - love it!

Amanda and Shaui have a fabulous collab "small talk"! Fun! They are also giving away this free template below - check it all out at the Oscraps!
This page details the fun banter between Katie and myself I want to remember. We play a game where we had to name what Princess (Disney or Barbie) we would be for that day. I always chose Geneieve from 12 Dancing Princesses and now we say that together! Silly ..... but cute!
Another page with Dawn's super kit! The whole reason I wanted to use this kit is because it reminds me of Katie's love of this BBC show "In the Night Garden". She loves this show and loves that we made this page together with her on my lap.

Ange has some wonderful new products out! Here are a couple of pages:

This page below was fun to do. Adopting the name of Katey of Handmaid Designs kit it was a little message to myself (journaling reads) "I want to feel less in over my head and learn to go with the flow more".

Finally my dear sweet Scandanavian friend Annika is in the Rocking Girls Spotlight for Nina's CT this week. The fun challenge is to take a photo that needed serious editing and work with it. The original and LO in a forum at Oscraps. LOVE seeing before and after shots. By participating you are in the running to with a GC for one of Nina's kits!

That's it for now! Enjoy the rest of your week everyone!

Cherish that time you and Katie have together, apparently they do actually grow up way too fast and it's not just something people say to you when you have kids.

How sweet that she wants to spend so much time with you, specially now she has going to school soon. Does she have to go every day already or half days? Love the page of the night garden. I know this serie also from the bbc, since a short time it's also on dutch tv.

Gorgeous pages Helen! Sounds like you and Katie are having a wonderful time - it's so lovely that you can spend so much time together before she's off to school. Can't really believe that Katie & Ella are so close to being big school girls! Have a great week!
