Remembrance Candles

How blessed are we that share our love of scrapbooking with others around the world with the same passion. In my case I'm doubly blessed by the creativity of these people. Lisadee over at SBF helped me with the design for Jason and Darren's remembrance candle to be lit at our wedding and then of course at every family occasion where their absence is felt. (Darren is my partner Chris's son, and Jason is my eldest son)

The butterflies and doodles on the back of the candle are from Linda Walton's exquisite Summer Wedding kit, made for her own daughter's wedding just last weekend. Thank you so much for sharing your creativity too Linda!
Overlay is Heavenly Holiday (unknown origin)

Little Miss Chloe

Miss Chloe Anne will have her first birthday soon and then her mummy will be returning to work, which we're all looking forward to but I'm not sure how Chloe or her mummy are going to cope!! Jodie sent me these photos of their visit to Featherdale Wildlife Park and I couldn't wait to scrap them. The expression on Chloe's face when she gets up close and personal with a koala is just priceless!

Both pages made using Flergs beautifully aussie themed kit "Gumnut Gully"
