No news

Quick update:
No news is, well, no news in this case!
I'm still here, still pregnant and now overdue.

Fancy a sketch?

The new sketch challenge is up over at Sarah's Cards - you could win a £10 e-voucher so get creating! More deets over on the blog, but here is the sketch (designed this month by Rachel Ward) and my take on it using gorgeous MME papers and one of my favourite wedding photos.

Documenting July 2010

I'm not really 'keeping up' with this project, but I am loving how the album is coming along, so I don't mind that I've only just finished July's pages!
I'm especially enjoying looking back at my bump photos over the weeks - I felt huge at this stage, but my it's grown a lot more since then!!
So, July's pages using the Cosmo 'Delovely' range.

DIY photoshoot

I've been nagging M to let me get some proper bump photos for ages, and finally at the weekend we got round to it so just thought I'd share a couple of my favourites.

Baby's Room!

So it's nearly time for baby to join us, and we've just finished the nursery (well except for curtains!). I'm so pleased with how it's turned out. We don't know if we are having a girl or a boy, so we wanted something neutral, something calming and something airy.

We went from this oppressing yellow (and on the ceiling too - why??).... this pale green with fresh white woodwork and a lovely new carpet. I can't believe how much lighter and fresher the room feels!

That tall chest of drawers was a cheap plain pine unit brought years ago from good old Argos. I primed & painted it in cream and then added funky handles in cream/green dots &stripes - so much better! The bookcase was inherited with the house - we actually have 2 of them. I think we need to get more books though - so far we only have The Hungry Caterpiller!
Oh, please also excuse the old kitchen chair in the corner - we have a lovely nursing chair which will go there,  but it's currently my sitting room chair until baby arrives!
We spent a weekend building the wardrobe, long chest of drawers and the cot. I saw we, what I really mean is M built them whilst I directed and passed screws lol! The wardrobe is actually huge, and the 5 little sleepsuits in there look a bit pathetic! I'm sure it'll fill up soon enough though.

 I made these little birdies one afternoon when I was bored (totally love having a fabric shop 6 doors down!). Hoping to fill the room with plenty of little details over the coming months.

Ah muslins, so practical and yet so pretty all rolled up in a basket!

That stripey sleepsuit is my favourite so far - it rocks!

So I think that's probably baby overload for today!
I'm getting on well with my Document 2010 pages so should be able to share July in the next couple of days.

Still here

No, I haven't fallen off the face of the Earth! 
I'm still here, still pregnant and still scrapping - I can't show you much of what I've been doing yet, but I'm hoping to catch up on my Document 2010 pages this week. This pic of me was 3 weeks ago now at 34 weeks - I love my bump but I'm ready to meet baby now! Still, only another few weeks to go.

In the meantime, here's a page that I did for the Sarah's Cards August kit - totally different from my usual in that I challenged myself not to use any patterned paper and I ended up using barely any colour either just good old kraft!
