Children R the Reward of Life Layout

My baby had a big sleep today (and still is as I type this!) so guess what I did? Scrapbooking of course. I've really missed it so decided to treat myself while my other children have been happily playing outside.

I tried out a couple of my newest "toys" namely the Scallop Circle Bigz Die and the new Play Date Designer Paper which resulted in a very colourful double layout. I tried to make the flowers looked exactly the same as the DSP and the leaves are a small heart punch (non-SU!) cut in half. I also used my Creative Memories Cutting System for the other circles.
