I'll Never forget how Perfect you are

This layout was created using inspiration from a layout I saw on Pintrest, I used the  Crete paper Maggie Holmes dreamy background paper. Also a selection of odd patterned paper I had in my stash including a jar cut from some Dear Lizzie paper embellished with glitter twine buttons and pins. I love this photograph taken of my husband Chris kissing our baby he started to feel our baby kicking for the first time on our honeymoon and it was a beautiful moment captured by our honeymoon photographer on the beach :-) 

Family <3

For this layout I created a tropical beach hut look using the a straw effect back ground paper with splats of blue and pink paint and hidden journaling behind the 'so happy together' postcard. I used Heidi Swapp black and white buzz words on the photo to create the tilte. I just love the overall effect of the layout it really captures to the tropical feel of our holiday and you can clearly see my baby bump :-) 

Happy Moments

This layout was also using our honeymoon photo of us walking along the beach. I used a grey wood effect background paper from the My Minds Eye Cut&paste collection and elements from Echo Park Here&Now to embellish the layout also some Amy Tan wood veneer emblishments. 

Life is perfect....

created this layout a few months back while I was at a weekend crop in Swindon, using a photo from our honeymoon photoshoot. 

I used a pencil with a rubber end to dip into white paint creating white dots onto the back background. I chose to use bright colours to bring character to the back and while photograph. I used papers and element stickers from the Echo Park Here and Now collection by Loui Whitlock including the a border sentiment for the layout title.

where has the time gone!!!!!

Well I've got no idea where the year has disappeared to and there is no excuse at to why I've not kept on top of my blog. I've been bad and I do apologise. So I think a quick catch up is called for..... well where to start I have had a fantastic year I started it as Miss Meakings ended it as Mrs Eldridge, we are pleased to say we are soon expecting the arrival of Baby Buttons due 13th January 2014 so any day now!!!  

Also we went on our honeymoon in November to the beautiful Island of Samana in the Dominican Republic where we had some beautiful photographs taken of us on the beach. 

But as I'm now on maternity leave I will be keeping my blog up to date with news and posting some recent scrapbook pages.
