It's all about Krystal :)

Thank you all so much for your comments on the previous post! I've been really blown away :)
Meanwhile... Krystal has been very creative making canvases for her lovely new bedroom. She saw some 4 x 12 canvases that she really liked... came up with a design... found a quote (on the walls of the gym)... raided my supplies LOL and here's what she's created:

And when she puts them on the wall she's going to stagger them like this:I'm quite impressed actually! She certainly knows what she likes!

Over the weekend Scrapbook Essentials had a weekend challenge to create a layout using: 2 patterned papers, a 5x7 photo and a bird. I've had a photo of Miss Krystal that I've been wanting to use on a layout so here's what I came up with:

I asked Krystal to proof read my journaling for me and by the end she was bawling her eyes out... oops not quite the reaction I had expected! But it was very heartfelt (the journaling and the tears) so here's a close up:The papers are from Cosmo Cricket and Basic Grey and the wee bird is on an Autumn Leaves stamp.

Right I'm off to do some more creating... love it when the mojo flows :)
