On Sunday my sister in-law, Holly & i went for a little child-free day trip to Melbourne for the Baby & Toddler Expo that i won tickets too, we had a great time checking out some fabulous stalls, i could've spent a lot of money on gorgeous stuff, but i was good & instead walked away with a lot of inspiration. After we left we found this lovely, girly Christina Re cafe in Collingwood & did a quick u-turn for a cuppa.
A few years ago i was an obsessive scrapbooker, sadly i lost interest & unfortunately haven't scrapped any pages for about two years - which means i have done absolutely none for Scarlett. I have felt guilt over this & even The Bloke has told me that one day the older two will be looking through their albums & Scarlett will have nothing! But i must say, walking into this store has thankfully re-stored my love for paper! I bought a few sheets of gorgeous Christina Re paper to start some pages for Scarlett & have since been browsing my old favourite scrapbooker's blogs & pinning lots of inspiration over at Pinterest............now i can't wait to go through my stash & rediscover what i have & get lost amongst the paper, double-sided tape & brads again! But right now i'm going to go & snuggle in front of the heater with a hot chocolate & my book.........ahhh......did i mention the serenity?
