Yes (LOL you can roll your eyes!!) I set myself the challenge to scrap with my new Stampin' Up! goodies and honestly?  I couldn't be happier with the result.  The colours were perfect ... especially the Not Quite Navy for bringing out the blue in Matilda's eyes.  Don't you think?!

I hope Matilda's mum (my girlfriend Tammi ... hi Tim Tam!!) is as delighted with this LO as I am!  I can't thank Tim Tam enough for allowing me to scrap this photo of her gorgeous little girl, and for sharing it with you on my blog.  Special mention must also go to the incredible Tiff Firth who took this photo.  You can visit Tiff's blog HERE.

Special thanks to my girlfriend Jill (hi Jill!) for the stunning die-cut, yellow doily I received in a bundle of goodies on Monday.  LOL talk about perfect timing!!!  Special thanks also to my buddy Miriam (my Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator and the cause of my current obsession with all things Stampin' Up!) for reminding me I can scrap (not just make cards) with my Stampin' Up! supplies!  (Hi Miriam!)  You can find Miriam's blog HERE.

Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday ...

PS:  The sketch I used for this LO can be found HERE ... yep it's one of my all time favs but I really should get on with some more scrapping because I have so many more sketches to share.  :)
