Remeber ....

Hi there my Scrapbooking Friends.
Remember is such an amazing word, one that is the key to scrapbooking. Photos are all about remebering.
Today  I have scrapped a photo that was taken the first time my youngest daughter held her nephew, the day after he was born...He stared at her intensly while she was chatting to him.  The day before when we first saw him she said something and he turned and looked at her...amazing.




I used Websters Pages Winter Fairy Tales "Once Upon A  Time". I misted my page using the Ideology swirl before I started using Glimmer Mists "Blue Trunk Bay" "Lemon Zest" and "Yellow Daisy"
I started this L.O. on my USTREAM channel called Zeffy Scraps.
Get Creative has a challenge using masks and mists this month and Bird Is The Word has a challenge to use the word "Remember" in our title.
I wish you all a great week ,with lots of creativity.
Zeffy.

How do we get started??


Hi there Lovely Ladies....
Yes ,yes I have not been around, I have not blogged in ages....I have been a limbo....is there a thing like Grand-Mother Post Partum depression???
I think, for the past 3 weeks I have been in a bit of a strange space...almost distracted, and slighlty distressed.
Ok I have also been busy what with Christmas and a house full of people, even then I was almost  should I say relaxed, distracted.....but now ....it is back to routine..well trying to get into routine,trying not to stress about things happening around me.....I am enjoying the baby...in fact he is fast asleep next to me while my daughter Faye is taking a nap, as he was niggling most of the night....
While I was sitting here I was reading all of your blogs and I saw Nadia Cannizo's blog and she mentions 52 ways to Simplify your Life.........Thank you Nadia, maybe this is what I need just now...a way to make things easier and more simple, so that I can get on with things.

Talking of getting on with things and just starting this year, I think of Natalie Kalbach and I have been following her Creative Jump Start Summit 2012 Thank-you Natalie for putting this together...I am enjoying the kick start I get each day , even though my Art Journalling needs improvement I want to share a page I did on Saturday Night.....

I wrote this on the 10th and did not get a chance to post it...today is the 26th...hopefully I will get going next week....I definately want to stream real soon so keeo an eye out on Zeffy Scraps I am hoping to stream tomorrow or Saturday....
I have one L.O. ready it is of my new Grand-Son hopefully I will photograph it today.
Love Zeffy
