A layout celebrating the beautiful smile of my youngest 'bubba' using the gorgeous glittery goodness of 'My Mind's Eye'.

Using a craft knife I cut a square out of the MME pp, to recreate the window effect. I sanded the edges of the photo to add a bit of texture to the wood in the photo. I drew the hearts by hand, layering the velum heart onto the pp one and then sewing the droplet on to hold the layers together. The plane banner was cut from the reverse side of the polka dot pp.

The American Crafts silver glitter cardstock is awesome! Here I used a scallop border punch. The cardstock can be cut with dies also.
How lovely is the MME lost and found range- glittered tastefully!

2 minutes silence

Below is a photo of Christchurch from the Port Hills just after the earthquake last week - the dust over the CBD.

It's hard to believe that one week has passed since the earthquake in Christchurch. I've just watched on TV and observed the 2 minutes of silence. It has changed many lives, broken families and brought others together. The whole nation is behind you, thinking and helping where ever they can. Hoping that all my customers in Christchurch are safe, you have been in my thoughts. Have caught up with a few comments on blogs and see that some of you are doing OK.

I have family in CHCH, but all thankfully are safe - can't say the same about homes, but they can be rebuilt. My sister here in Nelson has a CHCH family staying with her and their children are attending school here in Nelson. Their daughter has been playing with mine and are now in the same class at school together, just trying to bring some normality back into their lives.

Stay strong - be safe!
