I'm back!

Hello, everyone! Yes, that's right - I'm back!! Our new, little bundle of joy, Éloïse Angélie, was born October 8th, and everyone has been adjusting well since. She is such a great baby and Louis-Olivier loves being a big brother - especially when Éloïse lights up when she sees him or hears his voice. I did go through a hormonal rough patch for a few weeks, but thanks to great friends, was able to bounce back much more quickly than expected.  All is well.

And yes, that means that I have slowly, but surely gotten in the routine of scrapping again. I started with my thank you cards as well as my Christmas cards and am now working on Christmas gifts. However, I did do this next layout one evening just to change it up a bit and do something different.

Based on a PageMaps sketch, I used lots and lots of Simple Stories. You can also find some Jillibean Soup, Maya Road, Studio Calico, Cosmo Cricket, Stampin' Up, Tattered Angels and October Afternoon. I also used my We R Memory Keepers tab punch as well as my Crafter's Workshop stitching template. And those two in the photo? My dear parents in August 2012, down by the shore, a hop, skip and a jump from the house. Oh! And mea culpa! I have no idea where those buttons come from, but they are an absolutely perfect match for that green patterned paper. Woo!Hoo!

Happy scrapping!
