Just Add Ink Challenge #3 AND S.A.M Creative Challenge #3

You have to think "time wise" when juggling responsibilities of a new baby, home Schooling, house cleaning and of course joining in on the challenge fun!!! With this in mind I knew that to participate in these two challenges I had to incorporate them together!!!

SO with the sketch layout of the Just add ink challenge and the theme of "Love" from the Stamp a Memory challenge I came up with this.... (not to mention that the S.A.M challenge you have the chance to win the heart punch! I want to be in that!! YAY!)

Every time I look at this photo it makes my heart so full of warm fuzzies and overwhelming joy! Our dear little "treasures to Love" Hannah, Ezekiel, Sophia and now Esther!
The reason I LOVE challenges soooo much is that it makes me sit down and stamp! In this case I've got my first scrap-book page of Esther done! What a wonderful feeling of accomplishment!! (hence why i did the two challenges cause getting two separate ones done was just NOT going to happen!!)

Here is a close up of the detail on the heart stamp from Always which I markerd and the very faint words "always on my mind, forever in my heart" in the background on the Pink Pirouette. Also the chip board letters I just dabbed on top of the choc chip ink pad to colour.

I'm in awe at just how much our baby girl has grown in the last 9 1/2 weeks, she sure isn't that "new-born" anymore!!

Well thanks for popping by, and do make sure you check out these two fabulous sites, especially Claire Daly's scrap-book pages, they are simply AMAZING!!!! Actaully in saying that so they all are so go there!!

Hi Sharnee, wow 9 and a half weeks already! Hope everything is going well.

What a beautiful page! I think my favourite bit is the multicoloured heart and the sweet bow behind it. Thanks for playing!

A very cute photo and a beautiful LO - love the heart details - it's so pretty.
PS: I have a sister who lives in Launceston! It's a very pretty place.

I love the layout you did. The two challenges work so well together and I am very impressed that you found some time especially after having Esther only 9 1/2 weeks ago.
