Baby Shower Gift

It's a new thing to me is baby showers, what is the correct thing to do? My scrapbooking buddy Julia is hosting a baby shower tonight for her daughter in law who is due to have the first baby in the family. Understandably they are beyond exited, I was very honoured to have been invited because it is for close family,  and although I don't know Julia's family I hear about them often. I have bought a pair of little bootees, some scratch mitts and a snuggle blanket. They are just token gifts for the day. What I spent most time on was making the gift bag, I came a cross a link that led me here, for $5 I loved the tote enough to buy the template. Here is the gift bag I made using the template, I can see this being a good investment.
 There's a little purse to go with the bag but I didn't make it on this occasion. I've got to laugh at the bunny's face, he's not too sure at all really is he?

Vine Tutorial

On Monday morning I took part in the UKScrappers blog hop, who would have predicted the response to the flowers I had made for the layout. In particular the rose vine. I was flabbergasted, but promised I would let everybody know how I had done it. If anybody does make one of these vines please could you credit me and if posted in a blog I would appreciate a link back to me.
I was absolutely inspired by the gorgeous Prima vines, I have purchased many but due to the cost they remain in my stash, I am too frightened to use them because they are not cheap. They fall into the category of  'waiting for a special projrect'. This made me challenge myself to see if i could make something similar.
 Firstly you will need to gather your supplies

Over the last few years sources one of my favourite sources of inspiration and a 'go to' for getting your creativity going again has become Pinterest. I think I use it almost as much as google. I recently saw this layout and knew I wanted to lift it. Here is the result

I loved its simplicity and I was able to use a photo that is almost 30 years old. See those scrabble type tiles, Ive had them years and was happy I could use some on here.

Guest Designer

Over on the Scrap Addicts Blog I am the last guest designer for this month. There has been a series of layouts posted this month based on the theme of large photos. My 'go to' photo size is the standard 6x4"but I also favour 3x4" for layouts with multiple photos. 
When I do use larger photos I like them to be at a stage in my scrapbook that shows a change in topic or location, almost like a new chapter.
I chose a very large photo 8 x 10 for this layout, with a large image like this all of the decorating can be lined up on one side but to make everything link up I like to overlap onto the photo.
I had the layout all planned in my mind but by the time I finished it I had taken it apart and then put together again three times! It was almost finished and i dropped glue onto the photo, so I had another photo printed and when I stuck it down the torch and arm had been cropped off the image. So third time lucky getting the photo right.
