Another of my life changing moments

Late last year I was inspired by a blog by Jennifer Mohler,  to start scrapbooking stories from my past that changed me or impacted my life.  She had started a project called 100 Life changing moments.  I chose not to put a number on mine but to simply start collecting a list of events or people that I thought had influenced me in some way.

This layout is another for this album - the day I first became a Godmother.

Thanks for looking

No longer a baby

Well I've been scrapping Life Changing Moments this weekend to do it being the theme for cybercrop at this weekend.  A drizzly few days has let me escape to the scrap room a few times whilst the kids are snuggled up watching DVDs :)  Here is one of the resulting layouts.  When Brayden turned 1 it was a realisation that he would be our last baby and his age would no longer be relayed to people in months but in years - he was now a one  year old and therefore no longer a baby.
This layout was created using the April #2 Saturday sketch from and the Kaisercraft Rewind series of papers.  Bella chipboard lettering which has been painted in Platinum Liquid pearls and then had rainbow foil added in patches over the top.  Cardstock is Aussie Scrapsource and I used the ecraft cutter to cut both the large stars as the mat and the smaller ones used in the banner.

High School Hair Fashion

I was admiring a layout by Suz Doyle, one of the DT at Aussie Scrap Source during the week  She had taken a photograph of her daughter with her birthday cake each year and had featured 8 years worth of these photos on a double layout - showing just how much her daughter had grown up in this time.  It got me to thinking about all those smaller photos in the school portrait pack I receive each year and how they too would show how my children had grown over the years.  When I pulled out Steph's highschool ones the first thing that stood out were all her different hair styles - from change of colour to slicked back fringes to curly to straight - each year was somthing totally different and even though I haven't yet received the Grade 12 version - that too is going to be different as she is now very blonde again.

So, here is my layout inspired by Suz's one.
