Shades


Hi there everyone

I am so sorry I have not been around much of late, no visiting blogs or posts I'm afraid - just a bunch of DT work getting done; not that I am complaining for one second!!  Promise I will get to all of your blogs soon!

I do have a Purple Pumpkin share for you today.  A couple of my most fav photos of Caitlin - not that they are the best technically or super sweet, BUT they sooo capture how she was feeling at the time and the joy is priceless!!

Close ups first, love these Purple Pumpkin heart buttons.


I also used the shades as part of the embellishments on my layout...  Thanks to Natalie Elphinstone for the inspiration; she uses her girls art work on layouts and I thought why not include the actual glasses!!

Close up of the XL Purple Pumpkin button... and all the layers

and here is the full layout...check out her smiles!!  Journalling says "Her future's so bright, She's just got to wear... Shades"


Thanks for popping by today and leaving your comments, especially when I have not been returning the favour!!  

Oh yeah, and be sure to check out the new additions to the Purple Pumpkin store

Gwen
