AAM - Dreams

Ok so I got all conflustered and missed the deadline by a couple of days for this months challenge so I am corresponding this to my blog post this month
The challenge this month was this

{AAM May Challenge} My Dream For You/For Me

Happy (inter)National Scrapbooking Day everyone! How cool to be posting our May challenge on this very special holiday. :) I know there is so much going on out there in internet land but I do hope that you find some time this month to join us! It's always so motivating when we see you sharing your layouts with us.

This month we are focusing on DREAMS. Do you have a special dream for someone you love? Or maybe you spend time doodling in your journal about all your daydreams. If you have children, what are your dreams for them? As you sit here reading this, are you already thinking about those dreams, hopes and wishes that you for your future? For your relationships? For your family?
This was simple for me
My dream has come true, I have my children around me & I love being their Mum
My only wish for them is health and happines anything on top of that is a bonus
I'm glad to say they are healthy and they are very happy - job done!

and some close ups
behind the little door is some journaling that simply reads  I love you all very much Love Mum 2012 xxx
I just journaled a couple of words to describe each of them on these LYB tags that I placed into a pocket I made from the simple stories paper

I love banners on my page and I like this mixed up one across the bottom
Hope you will find time to play along this month

Once upon a sketch

Had a little play along at Once upon a Sketch this month
This was the sketch
and here is my take
be back soon

I used the MME paper pad Lost & Found (again!!)
I loved the pale delicate colours that matched this pic of my eldest daughter when she was 9 months old - hence the title LOL
I finally broke into the world of hexagons lol but covered up a lot of them with various embellies!
The journaling prompt at OUAS was Mum and I just wanted to document that being a Mum to this little Angel was like a dream come true I still feel the same even though she is grown with a child of her own now

Just a quick share of a card I made for my Goddaughter's birthday at the end of the month
I used papers from my MME lost and found 2 pad that Miss S was so kind enough to send me. I was having a good old battle with my sewing machine but I think it looks ok all told lol

I loved this sketch by Kristine over at creative scrappers

This is also my take on this month's All About Me challenge (but I will blog it again with close ups later in the month)
I used mainly Simple stories and then snippets from lots of other maufacturers

CSI case file 17 - solved

I did this layout while on holiday I had made up a *kit* to take with me, but I forgot the alphas! In my infinate wisdom I decided to colour some the right colour and then proceeded to dab my hand unknowinly on them and spread the ink all over the place so this layout really is one big cover up for all my little errors lol

I chose this pic because it is my DH and the doggies on a previous visit to the holiday cottage we were staying in when I created the layout.

Testinmony - Journal about something puzzling
Evidence - Stars,circles,sheet music,map,patchwork,pen work , white space
