This Is Why I Do It

I am much happier with today's layout. I have been saving the beautiful KesiArt paper for something special and I think I found it.

I thought I might use the paper for a photo of Miss Three and her Daddy reading but when I was thumbing through my recent Origrami print stack I found this photo and knew it was the one. Scarlett often pulls out the Project Life album and looks at all the pictures. I encourage her to tell me all about it as it is a good boost for her oral language ( I cannot shake the teacher thing) and she loves remembering all the things we have done together. 

As well as the KesiArt paper I have added some die cuts from the latest Dear Lizzy and Maggie Holmes collections and a piece of Paper Bakery flair . The little list of words to live by is from Simple Stories and the journalling card is from one of the Studio Calico kits.

I am waiting patiently for my Kelly Purkey kit to arrive from Simon Says Stamp. I have cancelled my SC subs and signed for a three month trial of the Citrus Twist starting in June. I just saw the sneaks and I am very excited to see them in my hands!

We have had our home leave approved so will be spending a couple of weeks in wintery New Zealand in July. I cannot wait! I could really do with some winter scrappy bits and pieces but it is the wrong end of the year! I have totally fallen in love with the new Simple Story Summer range so I may have to save that for our beachy holiday later in the year.

I was so excited to see all the lovely comments from ladies over at Two Peas as well as some old friends. Welcome to Adventures in Singapore. I hope you find something that takes your interest here.
