Lily's Birthday, and Late Night Scrapping

It's a very special day in our household today....Lily turned the big FOUR!!
I can't believe my baby girl is 4, it honestly still feels like yesterday that I was meeting her for the first time.

The Birthday Girl:

And her presents patiently waiting to be unwrapped this morning:

Last night, I had the the Genius idea to start scrapping at 8:30pm, and kept going until 11:30pm - not so clever when you have a small baby in the house!! Im feeling it today!!
I managed to get 3 layouts done, but one I have yet to finish as I cant find the right alphas for the title.

The Roach's
Based on an older sketch from Design Dollies (well not that old, it was the February sketch).
It's a collage I made from some of my favourite photos from our recent family photoshoot, I used a 5x7 photo so that none of the little images came up so small that you couldn't tell what they are actually of. I actually really like scrapping in this size - for someone who doesnt like/do journalling it fills the page up that little bit more.

I had to go hunting for that Lil' Red Rocket button, as a certain little blonde girl had stolen it and claimed it as her own, but Im glad that I found it. I think it suits the layout perfectly!

Layout is based on sketch #91 from Creative Scrappers.
I heard that particular saying (which I used as the title), and it kinda just stuck - and then I remembered that Lily took a selfie with a pair of (clean) knickers on her a layout was born!


I also did a layout the other night, which I haven't shared yet.

She's a Kindy Kid
Because Lily turns 4 this year, and was born in the first half of the year, she was able to start Kindy. She does a 5 day fortnight, which is split 3/2 (there's over 100 kindy kids at Lily's school so the school had to split them up and half of them do 3 days on the even weeks, and 2 days on the odd weeks, and vise versa).
The photo was taken on Lily's first day (it was actual my photo for the day, for 365 project), as we were getting ready to ride/walk to school.


I'm off to relax - one (big) baby in bed, and only the little one to go!
