Birthday Time


First of all a big Happy Birthday to my sweet Allan for yesterday:)

This LO was a challenge by Jules at Scrapboutique. She challenges the Stylists to create a LO about our husbands without the use of any patterned paper. And this is what I came up with, thanks for the challenge Jules :)


We have loads of birthdays going on this time of year. Some family birthdays and some friend birthdays. A good time and a busy time of year!

Last week I helped a friend out taking piccies of preschoolers (Anita from "Captured Moments"). It was so much fun getting the little ones to smile for the camera, we had a ball!!

I also had to do some extra work training and we had supervision one evening. All in all a busy week. Anita invited us and Michelle and her family over for a BBQ on Saturday night. Lovely and relaxing!! It's so nice to be able to spend time with friends and have dinner outside. Gotta love spring :)

This weekend we"ll have the Cybercrop at ScrapBoutique starting on Friday the 26th of September with challenges from Chels, Liz, Kate and myself. I hope you'll come and join us for a weekend full of fun!!

Here's a little album I made with the Kaiser wooden puzzle and kaiser cabbage patch PP. Chels sent me the gorgeous papers and puzzle. I made a little card and attached that to the front of the album with a bull clip. Had it finished just in time for fathers day 2 weeks ago!


This month you can take part in my Challenge at ScrapBoutique. This is my interpretation of my challenge. You can find the challenge here :)

This LO is for Liz her "Stash Stompers" challenge at the boutique. This months challenge is to use lots of buttons on your LO (at least 20). Thanks for a great challenge Liz.



Did you have a go at cooking up some Lay Outs for the "ready steady scrap" comp over at Crafting in Style?
This was my LO for the first week, I really love this LO of Lucy playing soccer with Chris.



This LO was for last weeks Cybercrop at CIS.


And this one is for this weeks sketch at The Stylish Sketchblog using my sketch, woohoo!!


And finally, this one was just for fun!!


Hope to see you around at ScrapBoutique!!

Happy Scrapping!!

Beautiful Spring

Spring definitely started beautiful this year. 2 Gorgeous days to start of this gorgeous season!
It has been overcast the last 2 days though but I love Spring so much! I decided to make a spring album with some random "Days of spring" photo's. I saw on some girls' blogs"Days of summer" photo's. I really like that idea but my fave. season here is spring so thought it would be great to do a spring one. The kids are finally getting over their colds... hope that they will be the last colds for this year!!

I just can't believe how much the kiddies have grown lately!! Chris has gotten so tall and is such a teenager now and the girls are definitely not babies anymore. It's nice the they are growing up, becoming more independent (well as far as toddlers are independent... LOL) and are turning into little girls but I do miss them being babies too.


Today it really hit me how much they have changed. Instead of having to chase after them while doing the grocery shopping they were helping me putting the things in the trolley (adding a few bits and pieces here and there...), holding onto the trolley in the card park... very nice indeed!!


Anyway...


This weekend(starting tonight) is the "Spice it up" CC at Crafting in Style. Liz her sketch challenge and Karen her OTP challenge are already up!! Very nice, go and have a look!! While you're there also have a look at the challenge area and go to "Ready, Steady, Scrap! A gorgeous new competition that stared this week. !st LO is due by Sunday so go on and have a look and join in the fun!!


Speaking of Liz her sketches. These are the LO's I did for the Stylish Sketch blog :)




My sweet boss Chelsea at ScrapBoutique sent us these gorgeous papers. I received some lovely "Static" Crate paper and created this LO with it. I had a chat with the other stylists for a title for this LO... Old Man Rock was one of the suggestions... needless to say that Allan wasn't impressed with that one LOL. Most of the patterned papers are 20 % of this week but the new crate patterned paper is a massive 25% off!!!. While you're at ScrapBoutique shopping also have a look at all the cardstock which is 15% off this week!!! Awesome deals and a great way to stock up on some gorgeous papers!!
Chels also sent me some of this gorgeous Pink Paislee "Vintage Moon" patterned paper. Such gorgeous paper, love it!! This is my LO with it.


Liz had one of her gorgeous sketch challenges up at the CC at ScrapBoutique last weekend. This was my LO for it. Lucy is such a strong little girl!



At the CC I did the Blind Challenge and I created this LO for it. I made the LO for my sweet friend Liz.




I made a little mini album about Lucy her 1st birthday for Craft Online this month. This is the front cover. If you want to see the rest you have to go and have a look at the gallery on their site


Something non scrapping... I found this site Aussie farmers direct. It's such a great idea. You can get a box full of vegies and fruit straight from the farmers to your door. Every week you get a different box of goodies. Now, there's plenty of people that get a box delivered in NSW, QLD etc. But it's not available yet in Canberra (or Tassie). They need to have more interest in it for them to be able to start it up here. If you are interested (and who wouldn't be!!!) send them an email!!!!! When I lived in Holland we always received a box of fresh fruit and vegies straight from the farmers and let me tell you, it's awesome!!!! You get the freshest produce and the farmers get a decent prize for their products (instead of us giving the money to woolies or coles).


So click here and let's try to get it started in Canberra too!!!!!!!

That's it for now!! Enjoy spring :)


Happy scrapping!
