September Inspiration Sale - My Mind's Eye - Stella & Rose

September is upon us, the kiddies back in school. The crisp Autumn air is around us, and Christmas is less than four months away! 
So, without further adieu, September also brings another PageMaps reveal. Mellisa and I received some Bo Bunny new Double Dot, and some more of Emma's favourite Stella & Rose from My Minds Eye. She also provided some flower pins and crocheted flowers.
Mellisa's take on the sketch:

Lorena's take on the sketch:

I must say, this 3 photo layout was alot easier to do, since I knew I wanted to do a layout of my son's first haircut ... boy did he need it, what a shaggy mop top he had going on before that hair cut. This weekend he is going to have his 3rd haircut. Time really flies, soon I won't be measuring time by the number of haircuts my kids have had, but the number of baby teeth that have fallen out, then by the number of A's they got on their report card, followed by the number of sleepless nights I've had worrying about them being out too late ... and life goes on like that.


Patterned Paper = My Minds Eye (background), Bo Bunny (brown), Basic Grey (orange), Graphic 45 (blue)
Embelishments = Prima (flowers), Petaloo (crochet flowers) stick pins (I believe they are Little Yellow Bicycle)
Journaling = Journaling card by MME, rubons Karen Foster
Other: Ranger Distress Ink, twine, Glimmer Mist, brads (Basic Grey, Stampin Up, dollar store)

Mellisa's Inspirational take on the sketch coming soon :o)

This month all My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose collection is on sale - all you have to do is say "I was Inspired" at the cash when you are purchasing anything from this collection.

You can link to Lorena's blog here, and Mellisa's blog here for more inspiration.

Be sure to show us your creations too!


Here's Mell's photo of her take of the page map sketch....fingers crossed lets hope I can do this!

you can uncross your fingers - looks like I did it!!  Now I know why I was leary of a blog but Lorena and Mell assured me it wouldn't be hard - to count on them and that I do! I know Mell would say more about her photo and the techniques she applied to her layout - however she is unavailable! So you just get me rambling, sorry! Hope you enjoy the layouts and don't forget to drop by the store and check out the MME Stella and Rose Collection - something for everybody!
Emma :)

  1. I guess I have to figure out how to get Mellisa's photos from my email to this page! Coming soon - sorry all. I hope to have it figured out - that's why I leave all the techy stuff up to Lorena and Mellisa but I'm suppose to be taking care of Mell's side so here's hoping I get it right!

    stay tuned....
