Lets Get Shabby #17

We recently got some family photos taken as part of a fundraiser for the local kindy. You know the ones...cheap as chips sitting and first photo, then BAM $8278719 for the rest of the prints ;)
And who can resist the extra prints once you see your babies in glorious technicolour???
Yeah.
I always buy the pack.

This month's Shabby Challenge seemed perfect for this sweet pic of my kids...one from my *pack* of photos.
This month's challenge involved raiding your sewing box. I love using sewing type stuff on my LOs.
The LO had to have at least three discernible sewing box items.


I have at least three...

*Pins
*Stitching using thread from my sewing box
*muslin scrap
*button



After not scrapping for more than a week, this felt a bit *clunky*, but I like the mix of colours, and I love that pic :)


Nothing like a good pic to get me wanting to create!
Thanks for stopping by, and a million thank-yous to everyone for your beautiful messages on yesterday's post. I appreciate that you shared your condolences and your grief stories with me. So so much.
