Me again, and I am feeling on top of the world!!! Can I just say I am absolutely lovin' being a mumma! Tige is an absolute dream bubba, oh yeah sure we have some sleepless nights and he's a milk fiend but for the most part the little Tige-let is just dreamy! I was asked today online by an old school friend if life had changed heaps already and could I remember what my life was like before the little man was an interesting question because I realised that although it has only been 3 weeks it seems a lifetime ago that I only had myself and Dan to think about. 

I guess the biggest change has been that for the past 40 years I have only had to consider me(a fairly selfish existence I am sure) but now I can finely understand how truely amazing an experience it is to be a mother to have a little person so reliant on you and that indescribable love you feel... its all so consumming. So YES!!! My life has massively changed and no I can not relate to the old me anymore I'm loving the new me much more the multi tasker, the milk maid the new mummy!

The only thing that remains from my former life is my scrapbooking and I have some exciting news that I'll be able to share very soon with you all, but have to hold off just for another week so stay tuned for that newsflash. I also have some ATC's and layouts to share with you that I have managed to get done just prior to Tige's birth and during these past 3 weeks, so here goes...

Here's 2 layouts I have done over at 'The Color Room'
Here's the first layout I've created of Master Tige called 'Celebrating Our Boy' and below is Palette#46 that I drew inspiration from.
this one is called 'I'm so Happy', using Palette#47 for inspiration.
I also managed to get some ATC's completed before Tige was born, they are all for the 'Fullsleeve Swap' This one was  for the thme Architectural Detail. I paid homage to one of my fave mid century architects of all time the fantastic Mr Harry Seidler and did an ATC of the house he built for his parents 'The Rose Seidler House'. I opens up to expose the house and a pop up of an iconic chair of the time 'The Butterfly Chair' which is pool side.
this one is also for Fullsleeve and is for the theme 'Sign's' so I thought I'd try to re-create the old bus signs but create one of the beaches along the SE Qld coastline.
Okay well thanks for stopping by, keep smiling a wide one! xoxo
