Maja Designs.... #3

Yep, this is the third week of Maja Design sponsorship over at The Colour Room and consequently my third Maja inspired page! 

I struggled a little with the colours in this one.... those who know me know of the battle I have with purple, esp the lilac variety!  :)

This page is also a celebration of the day Maddison got her braces off last month.  She was counting down the days for at least 2 months prior and was just so excited.  Well worth the time and money I say!  :)

and the palette:



Hint:  Don't forget that you can add white, kraft, cream or black to any palette.

Plenty going on on the creative front, just nothing more that I can share right now.  I have not been buzzing around online much of late ... life is just such a blur at the moment and all of my time management skills are being tested - fully!!  lol.  The kids and their activities just seem to have really ramped up this year (I wouldn't have thought it possible!!) and I'm struggling to fit everything in.  I think I really need to re-assess and cut back a little, regain some balance and enjoy things more.  {scoff}... yeah, I can dream!!  Maybe in my next lifetime.  lol

Thank you so much for popping in.  I read and appreciate every comment so much.

Cheers for now....

What a gorgeous smile and you have showcased her beautifully in this page. You have softened the palette beautifully (the purple scared me off this week). And yes, I am chasing my tail everyday. The list just never ends.....I guess that's what happens with 4 kiddies.
