Girly Challenge

Cupcake Craft Challenges have a "Girly" challenge and I thought what could be more girly than a couple of scrap pages about me and my girl, Logan:
I am quite a novice when it comes to scrapping, so I try to keep it simple. This is the first time I have used so many photos, usually I keep it to one or two, so it was quite a challenge to get them all in there, but overall, I am happy with the result. The actual colours are barely banana and regal rose, the sunshine has washed out my pictures a bit!
I have joined up the stamp from stem sayings that say "I made a wish and you came true!" which is so true when I think about my girls. I always wanted a daughter, and I felt like all my wishes came true at once when Logan was born (and doubly so when Matilda joined us 2 years later). I am trying to make a scrap book for Logan's first five years. I think I have done about six pages...getting there very slowly! lol!

Very cool love. These are great seeing you with Logan when she was so little. Great job on the LO. I am having the same issues with too many photo's on one page. Yours looks great.

Look at that! I leave you alone for a couple of days and your creative juices visit. You are certainly on a roll. Love your cards below and your scrap pages are fantastic. It's our babies that make them even more special.

Gee you have been busy Leonie! I love your scrap layouts and your cards also. I am doing a little catch up because I haven't had much time to blog surf lately but I must say that bird card is just gorgeous.

I want not agree on it. I think warm-hearted post. Particularly the appellation attracted me to read the whole story.

So cute Leonie. What a treat to see you and Logan through the years. I'm sure she loves it too. I remember when I got married my mother gave me a basket filled with things from my childhood and I can't tell you how important those things are, especially the pictures. They truly are priceless!

Your scrapbook pages are beautiful and will be great additions to a book for Logan - slow and steady and you will get there.

Where are you? Rather where are your cards? Thanks for the take on my cabbages, obviously not a success! I am enjoying Tennis in Australia again! How time flies. Take care, I do not have my wonderful Colorado scenery to give me inspiration so I seem to stay in a funk! LOL!
