A Few More Layouts

Been a while since I posted anything new on here, so thought that I might share the latest layouts i have completed!!
This first layout is a challenge that I completed for the Cyber Crop at Scrap Witch. I had to use 8 different types of flowers.........I am a little over the sight of flowers now, as trying to color match etc for the layout was a real pain in the butt!!
I got there in the end and love the end result of this layout. I also used my new Autumn Leaves - Scribble Font stamps.......they are a little large for a 8x8 layout, but I totally love them.

With only 1 layout left to complete, all the kids Biography 101 Albums are up to date with a layout completed for all the birthdays they have celebrated so far!!

I have to admit that completing these albums for the kids has been a wonderful walk down memory lane and seeing how much they have grown up in such a short time. Scrapping for the kids has been a wonderful journey and I now look forward to scrapping the next birthday that they celebrate........although I will admit, that I am a bit over scrapping birthdays lol!!!

Quiet Weekend

Well I managed to have a semi quiet weekend. Mick was away with work (BMW) and the kids & I stayed home for most of it.

Saturday was spent at Mums place, and the kids had a blast playing with Pa!! It was nice that all the kids got to see Nanny & Pa, as usually Cate & Tilly are at school or Pa is working.

On the way to Mums I decided that I needed to re-live a part of my life that I have not lived for almost 8 years!!! Yep I decided to call past the Bush block at Lancefield and see the Bush Crew.
Unfortunately they were not there..........I was shattered as it took a bit to get the nerve up to actually call past there again. The Bush Crew are friends from my previous relationship and I was unsure as to how they would be with me. We never parted on bad terms, just that they still see the ex and his family and I didn't want to tread where I maybe wasn't welcome. Anyhow I managed to phone them and feel heaps better now as they have said that they would love for me to call past again and catch up on 8 years.

Yep 8 much has happened in that 8 years!! Dad past away after a brave battle with cancer, I moved to Melbourne, meet and married Michael, Mum got re-married, I had 4 beautiful children to Michael, and now here I am!!!

So Anzac Day weekend I plan to call past and see them. I am so looking forward to seeing them all and catching up on some old times that we shared.

Anyhow enough from me, must get a wiggle on as the shopping needs doing and the housework needs finishing.

Oh and here is another Layout that I have completed!!!

Latest Layout

Another Layout complete, however this has a story behind it!!

I was participating in the Amazing Scrap Race at Scrapping Around, but due to technical difficulties I am unable to load any work into the gallery. We tried numerous times to get items loaded, however no success.

I am rather sad about it as I was really looking forward to participating again this year as it makes for a lovely album at the end.

Anyhow I thought that I would share it here as I really love the completed Layout.

Natural Beauty.

To create this Layout I have used the following: Black CS, CherryArte Poolside PP - cut the two green Hibiscus flowers out, ScrapFX Chipboard flower, Buzz & Bloom alphas, Black Gel Pen, Junkitz Paints, Versa Mark Ink pad and Dimensional Magic.

Another Layout!!

Well I managed to get the mojo happening again last night and finished the last layout for Caitlan's Biography 101 yearly Birthday album.

Ellie's Album is was easy as I have only had to scrap 2 layouts.

Matilda's album requires her 2nd and 4th Birthday's to be scrapped and then its complete. I have had to get some pictures of her 2nd birthday printed as they are on negative and then its all done and dusted.

Kai's album has all of his 1st Birthday scrapped.........I am having a bit of drama with scrapping boy pages at the moment, however I'm sure the mojo will flow once I start scrapping them.

Anyhow here is last nights masterpiece!!

Caitlans 5th Birthday!!
For this Layout I used Bazzill CS, I love Elsie PP, Heidi Swapp Sticker, 7 Gypsies Circle Journal Stamp, Cherry Arte Letters, Heidi Swapp "5", Kaiser Bird Rub-ons, Kaiser Flowers, Peetaloo Mixed Flowers, Jewelery Tag, See D's Stamps, Kaiser Pink Pearls, Black Gel Pen, Stayz-On black ink Pad.
