When I Grow Up...

There are some paper ranges that you just fall in love with and Emma's Shoppe by Crate is one of those! When I took the photos of Rebecca at Moreton a few weeks ago, before we left home I sadly made sure that what she was wearing would go with the papers! They are very much her style (even she loves this range and has already asked for all the leftovers!) so I really wanted to use them to scrap photos of her.
We have always told both girls that they can be whatever they want to be as long as they are prepared to work hard to achieve their goal. For a long time Rebecca wanted to become a SCBU nurse but over the last 6 months this has developed into a real passion to become a doctor. I wanted to document her ambition but in her own words so I got Rebecca to add the journaling to this page.

Sorry the photos are a bit dark, the sun isn't cooperating today!
I had a lovely delivery today from Sarah, have you seen the absolutely gorgeous Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden range? It is stunning and I can't wait to get creating with it!!

I love love love this Butterfly Garden ephemera pack, they are so usable.

Oh my word!! your work is simply gorgeous Rachael!! And how proud you must be of your daughter, she's not only beautiful but smart clearly a kind giving person given the profession she is choosing!

Thank you for your sweet post at my blog! You asked about my scallop edge on the borders of my photos and patterned papers? Yep, you guessed's simply cardstock cut with a scallop scissor...I then use a white gel pen and put a dot in the center of each scallop (I like to use either the Signo Unibal pen or the Inksenntials gel pen) I really need to make a permanent post about those scallop edges in my tutorial column, I think that is the question I get asked the most! lol!
