My Little Domestic Goddess

I have been busy all month with the girls, my husband has been travelling and busy with audits at work, so have only gotten a chance to pull out my yummy November C'est Magnifique kit 2 days before month's end. I already have my next kit waiting in the wings!

I didn't want to skip a sketch challenge though because I have loved all of Nadia's sketches and am finding new sketch designer Michelle Singh's sketches amazing as well. Here is a look at the gorgeous sketch.

And here is what I did with the sketch using the gorgeous November kit. This is a photo of my youngest daughter Aisling trying to make up a bottle of her formula in the kitchen... Since the paper is 7 Dots Domestic Goddess, beautiful papers by the talented Finnabair, I thought a domestic goddess baby image would be fun to scrap!

Joyce Lawrence on the DT issued a challenge on the CM forum to use staples and to use brads, and I kept that in the back of my mind here, adding some staples on the left and two screwhead brads under the cluster on the right. I had fun taking out my Tim Holtz mini paper clips and the little metal pick that is holding the sweet sticker...I think this is the first time in ages getting those out!

I also used the copper paint included in the kit to do some masked chevrons, for some reason I keep adding them to layouts!! Though my clusters covered almost all of the chevrons on the right, I see a tiny bit peeping behind the butterflies lol!! I will enter this into the Scrap Africa chevron challenge this month too...

My daughter Aine turned 10 this month (see layout below, lol!!) and we got a few photos of her and her buddies at the local roller rink...I thought I needed to add back a bit about my family and girls in the blog, I started blogging about my crafts and my kids and need to go back to including a bit of both I think!!
