Scraps of Us - CC layouts

The SOU CC is well and truly underway, and some great challenges have been posted.

The first layout is my challenge. I challenged everyone to scrap a layout about their hobby (other than scrapping) or about something that they collect.
I, of course couldnt go past doing a layout of my Babushka Dolls.

And I have even managed to do one of the great challenges set by the other members of the DT. Vicki challenged us to do a layout, on what it means to be a girl.
I decided to do a layout on my beautiful princess, and how she's just as happy being a girly girl, as she is running around nakie and playing outside.

Hopefully I will get a chance to have a go at Chloe's card challenge, but unless I get to it tonight I wont get a chance, as tomorrow afternoon I am off to see this man in concert:

Im so excited, I have been to almost all of his concerts here in Perth (whether he toured with Matchbox Twenty, or as a solo artist), unfortunately last time he was here with Matchbox Twenty I was too sick to go, so it's been a couple of years since I have seen him in concert.

We had a bit of a scare last night with Lily, she was in the bathroom talking to me, and then next thing I know she was choking on something. She had her fingers down her throat and she was trying spit whatever it was up. I gave her a couple of whacks on the back and couldnt get it out, so I called my husband and while he was trying to get it out I called the ambulance. As soon as the man at dispatch heard a small child was choking he asked me my address (before he even asked my name) and sent the ambulance with the sirens on. Luckily while I was talking to him, Ian managed to get the thing out (turned out it was a grape), but the ambulance was still sent to make sure that she was ok (we weren't sure if the thing came out of her mouth, or went further down - turns out Ian managed to get her to spit it out).

She was back to her normal self by the time the ambulance got here - which didnt take very long at all (we were lucky and there was an ambulance at the depot 5 minutes down the road that was sent to us). Just goes to show the resilence of kids, one minute they are choking and almost giving their Mummies a heart attack, and 5 minutes later they are back to playing and laughing!!

Im just glad that my baby girl is ok, and I promise that no matter how much I want to tell her to be quiet, when she's screaming and carrying on (we've all said it, or at least wished it), I wont say it again - because that 30 seconds or so when she was quiet were the most terrifying of my life!



  1. That layout is gorgeous Tamara, and I did notice that gorgeous button from Shell!
