Get Picky Inspiration Prompt #5

Here is the pic for our Inspiration Prompt this month.... as much as I would like it to be so, I have never walked into a room that has been so thoughtfully and romantically decorated!  After almost 14 years of marriage...I am more than happy to get the card that Stef has taken the time to write his own personal message in.  
Although I don't think I would be sad if he did go to that much trouble

Anyway, here is my layout...

I loved creating this!  I know I say that often, but I think I enjoy creating those layouts where I could have a bit of a play :)  The pics are of my sister and her first born bubba Missy Itiyah!  I remember this Mother's day so well, as it was my first one with Isabelle and Liza's second.  We took these pics outside in Mum and Dad's garden.  As I said , I played lots with this one....lots of misting, fabric, ribbon..... I may even be a good sister and give it to her next time I see her :)

And finally, a little up dated pic of Stef and I from our niece's 21st. 

 It's the first time I've realised....(LOL) that Stef and I are getting older!!!  Surrounded by these little 20 somethings...we were feeling our age :)  We managed to keep up until about 12:00 till Mum and Dad called us home for one of the cherubs...YEP, the party days are a bit of a distant memory me thinks...

Thanks for stopping by xxx


  1. Gorgeous layout Nikki and super cute bunting!
    The inspiration pic is just so romantic, however one thing springs to mind... it might be beautiful at the time but who has to clean it up??? Yep, that us, the women! :)

  2. Beautiful LO Nikki, love the misting! LOL at Melinda, I too would probably be thinking about the cleaning!!! Lovely pic of you and hubby :)

  3. Gotta love the feeling you get when you are around 20 somethings, certainly makes me feel a bit older too. I love your stunning layout here and your the pic of your sister and first born is just beautiful. Melxx
