CCG #122

How gorgeous is this colour combination?!! Debbi put these colours together this week for Color Combos Galore and named the colours after Prince songs...what a crack up, and inspiring nonetheless.
raspberry beret - i think "olive" her - diamonds and pearls - blue light


You know, I had this totally rockin' post right here...and then blogger failed on me...so here's what I remember (lol).

I realised recently that I don't have many photos of the kids with their grandparents. My own grandparents passed away when I was only 5, and I've always wished that I had more time with them and more photos to remember them. My kids will never wonder about their grandparents. So, you will see a few more family layouts coming up. This one features Seth with his Granny, Annette. Granny and Papa pick Seth up from school nearly everyday and care for him until we get home from work. Papa even takes him to footy training. Andrew and I are forever grateful that they are able to help us out. They've just retired and bought a caravan, so here's hoping they won't disappear over the horizon for too long!

So, there's two lessons in this post...take more photos of the kids with the grandparents, and embrace colour! I hope you're all enjoying the colour combos, and its inspiring you to put together some colours you normally wouldn't. Cheers, Lis.

oh, the shameless plug...that gorgeous flourish is new by Scrapware! Did you know they're having a DT call?? Check it out in the post below.

Combos always post when I'm at work without access to Ning, but thankfully at least I get to look at your layout, what a beautiful one indeed. Thanks for the reminder, I really need to get my kids and their grandparents togehter in photos more!!!

Well said Lisa - i think we are all a bit guilty about forgetting what scrapping is really all about - that is the precious memories - your layouts are lovely and full of great memories for seth and emme.

Beautiful LO Lisa....and I certainly don't mind your 'shameless plug' he he he!
Don't you hate it when you write a post....the server loses it and you have to rewrite it trying to remember what you said and how you said it!!!
