Wednesday, 26 March 2008
on reading this blog, it seems like I have two families - so have to point out that every now and again, Tara logs in as me and posts - so the pictures below are actually of HER husband and not mine!!! Just in case anyone was wondering (or cared....) Louise xx
Holidaying in New England
I decided that it was finally time to use up some paper that I have had in my personal stash for a couple of years. Can't believe it took me so long - i love these papers! They are from Li'l Davis Designs. I think Lou and I will have to source their papers for our stock.
The pictures were taken during a holiday that my hubby and I took in September 2007. It was such an amazing trip. We went to Boston and Vermont. The best part was definately the whale watching in Cape Anne. Roll on more holidays!

Brand new Cleo Crafts ribbons and blooms kits
We have put together some beautiful (well we think so!) little kits of matching ribbons and blooms - check them out in our shop here
Heres the turquoise and brown one - in case you need any further inspiration, heres what the colours represent (if you are into holistic stuff like me :-)
Brown is for when you want to feel that everything in your life is going well and turquoise is for when you want to tap into your creativity through dance, music, art, etc - good for scrapping then!!

Tara's first contribution to Cleo Craft's Blog
About time I hear my sister say.......
I am so excited by all the buzz that our design team (Mandi and Natalie) are creating for our monthly kits. I finally recognise how addictive and appealing blogging is. Watch this space for my own April Kit Sneak Peek.

sarahs first train ride
we are just back from a little outing into Belfast - Sarah my two year old, adores Thomas the Tank Engine, so I dragged the whole family (DH is loaded with the cold and a bit grumbly) into town on the train - the staff at our station were so nice, they gave her a little paper train and a bunny rabbit bookmark! She loved it of course... Daithi slept through the whole thing.... now I have a lo to make with my Thomas embellies!!

March Kit Layout idea
I have been off on my jollies for two weeks in Orlando and have come back to a fab new kit for March as designed by Tara - based around Basic Grey's Recess papers, this kit is ideal for a starting school page!!
Here is our layout idea for this kit:
