Welcome!

My name is Bronwyn and I am so glad you have stopped by for a visit. I hope you find joy and inspiration in everything you see here. I live with my family in a new, builder-grade townhome in a small city, even though my dream home would be a century old farmhouse in the countryside. Daily I strive to add warmth, "age," and character to our little home. I love to knit, crochet, sew, decorate, bake and go thrift shopping. These are all a wonderful release after my three small children are off to bed each evening. Thankfully, I have a patient and understanding husband, Kevin, who allows me to bring all kinds of crazy things into our home in the the name of "creativity."

Altered Embellishments

Another week, another challenge at "Little Red Wagon." This time I created a double page layout featuring pictures of my youngest son. The challenge this week was to use a plain old embellishment and change it to make it more exciting or use an embellishment in a new way.

On my Layout I used a strip of Doodlebug's Fancy Frills in red to create tiny blossoms on my tree. I cut them apart and "stickled" them in the middle:

Here is the complete layout:

I used a ton of pics of Cam doing things he shouldn't. He can be a very naughty boy, he keeps my husband and I in stitches!! Here is a closeup on the journalling:
