Sarah's Formal my baby is all grown up

Today was such a busy day, Sarah took off early to have her hair done and her make-up, taking my car so her make-up wouldn't melt on the way home (air-con LOL!!).

Sarah arrived home at 3pm this afternoon and slipped into her dress with a bit of help LOL!!

The fabulous car arrived at 3.30pm ready to take the girls off to the formal. thank you so much DebbieK and Shane for the beautiful car. WOW!! what a car!!

Sarah's friends Mel and Sam arrived shortly after 3.30pm and Henry arrived shortly after and got into his formal gear from last year so he could have photos taken with Sarah. Unfortunately Henry wasn't allowed to go to the formal as they don't allow outsiders. He is patiently waiting here with us tonight for her to come home.

The girls then went to the park for photos before heading off to the formal. Thank you Shane for being so patient with us while making you drive your car here there and everywhere for photos LOL!!

here are a few photos to share with you. All 3 girls look so beautiful and grown up.

Many more photos taken, have shared just a few but no doubt there will be layouts coming LOL!!

Can't wait till she gets home and tells me all about her big night.

Until next time...

Featured on Prima Blog

I went over to Prima blog today to find the winner of the October sketch, congratulations to Teresa Manchas.

On scrolling down I found that my layout has been featured with a lovely comment along with many other beautiful layouts.

Here is my layout entered for the Prima Sketch for October.

I used 2 different ranges of Prima Patterned papers being "Indeed Collection" and "Paradise City Collection" together with the beautiful big butterfly and roses which I pulled apart as these were the only Prima flowers I had in my stash. I hated pulling the beautiful roses apart but needed to so I could get the different sizes to fit in with the prima vine, then for the title I used a Prima transparency and cut the title out "Beautimus" meaning beautiful, oh and I can't forget the Prima flourish I printed out onto transparency for under the flowers, these are fantastic cd's from Prima.

Click on my layout above to head over to the Prima Blog to see the winners layout and the other featured layouts. Amazing layouts there that's for sure.

Until next time...
