Cody's First Birthday

We had Cody's first birthday party on Saturday. We had it at a park at West End. It was such nice weather. We decided to do breakfast. Cody loved just crawling around the ground. He got some really nice pressies. It was a great day, with great company.

It's a boys life

I did this layout the other day, love how it turned out. I also love the flourish. I joined 2 flourishes together as I find it hard to get a great flourish these days. I also love this photo. Jordy has the cutest, cheekiest smile. I also am determined to use all the papers from a range that I have bought. I am sick of having loads of scraps behind so I am trying to use up everything paper wise.

FINALLY i have scrapped these photos. These were from Jordan's 4th birthday party at Lollipops and i hadn't scrapped them. I find it hard to scrap so many photos. So I decided to keep the layout extremely simple. I really didn't use much pattern paper.

New Bike

I finally finished this layout, I had it done at the end of last week, but just needed to do the title. Jordan for his 6th birthday, which was this year got a new bike. He has another bike that has training wheels on it, this one doesn't, we have done some practice runs on his old bike without training wheels due to it being smaller. He hasn't attempted to ride his new bike. I have had this paper for ages, I was just waiting for the right photos, thought these were perfect.

I unfortunately didn't get any scrapping done today, though I did go scrapbooking shopping so hopefully over the weekend I may get some done, I have some new inspiration with all my new goodies. So check out this space for hopefully some awesome layouts.

First Haircut

On the September school holidays I took Cody for his first haircut. He did ok at first but got sick of it pretty quickly. Michelle, our hairdresser cut his cute little curls off but we did keep them. I created a pocket on the page to put his curls in.

Learning to ride my bike

I have had this paper hidden away for ages, and finally got to use it, I am trying to go through some of my old papers and things to use them up. This is my son who is 6 years old learning to ride his bike. He can do it, it is now just practicing, which we have been a bit slack and haven't done. there is a great park at archfield and we go there as it has a big path and basketball area so it is good to learn how to ride. That is one thing I love about scrapbooking you can preserve such precious memories like these.

A2Z Scraplets Design Team

I am so excited, I got into the A2Z Scraplets Design Team. A2Z Scraplets is a chipboard wholesalers. They make the most awesome chipboard. Also they're an Australian company. I am so looking forward to working with them. Check out there website They are a wholesaler so if you would like to purchase any of there products get onto and you can purchase any of the products through, mad about scrappin, also Leanne is really good so if she doesn't have any that you want you can order it through her and she will get it for you.

Rusty Pickle Paper

This is another kit for Mad about Scrappin. I really loved this paper. When Leanne first gave me this paper, I was like mmmmm interesting. I did consider colouring the paper but I don't tend to do alot of black and white photos so I thought it would be nice to combine it and just do black and white. I really love the Brothers page. It is also nice to get paper that goes with older boys. My eldest is 10years old so alot of paper is designed for younger boys, but I find it hard for him. So this paper was great. I used on the brothers page, A2Z scraplets chipboard. Love A2Z scraplets chipboard. Certainly made the layout.

Mad About Scrapping Design Team Kit

These are some layouts I did for Mad about Scrappin's kit. These kits certainly challenge me, I love having loads of paper to use on layouts, Leanne we get only a few sheets so. it makes me think. I don't mind how they turned out, one thing I did discover, after 6 years of scrappin I never realised I like to put journalling on the right so In the just love to Play layout I kept wanting to put the journalling on the right side but there was the picture that i wanted to keep on the paper and if I put it on the right it would hide it. It drove me a little nuts. Things that you go through. I also love the little card I got out of the paper. I have been trying to get cards out of scraps so that I can put them away and then just crab one when one of the kids are invited to a party. Cards are just soooo expensive, I think it is a good trade off to justify spending money on scrapping stuff. LOL!!! Good excuse for me to the hubby!!!

Just love 2 bake

I made cupcakes the other day and I found these really cute sugar animal to go on top. The cupcakes turned out soooo cute, so I decided to take a photo. I love baking. I have been trying to bake once a week. Today I made chocolate slice to my sons pure delight. It is his favourite. I love just baking, I don't find thinking of what I should cook for dinner so much fun. That is a bit boring.

Shell's Scrap Challenge

I went onto Mad about scrappins blog and they have teed up with Shells Scrap challenge and have some challenges that I found intriguing. I am usually not one to do challenges I just like doing my own thing. But found these challenges a bit of fun. You have 8 challenges to choose from and only need to do 4. This is my layout for the numbers challenge, I had to use 1 flower (I know I have more then 1 flower but some of it was the paper) 2 photos, 3 buttons, 4 journalling spots, 5 rhinestones or jems. So this is my layout, I had fun doing it, but found it hard fitting in that many journalling panels, so I used one for my title. The photos have a bit of an eerie back ground, we were silly and decided it would be a good idea to go to the park for a picnic when that big dust storm hit. It was the strangest day. You could see the dust storm coming. The kids had fun, but we did have to cut it short due to the dust storm

Cheeky Little Monsters

ANOTHER layout with the Fancy Pants trick a treat, do you think I love this paper range. MMmmm, I think I only have enough paper for one more layout. Not sure what photos I will use. Just love them, even though they have been Halloween paper I haven't used it yet for Halloween.

Page 2 of Sand Monsters

I really liked these photos so Idecided to continue the Sand Monster page and turn it into a double layout. I have continued using the Fancy Pants trick a treat paper.

Friday fun

Today has been a great day, I haven't had to race out of the house and do a zillion things. So I have been able to scrap some more layouts. I am nearly to the end of the Fancy Pants Halloween range. I have to get some more photos developed. i have started on the baby range and am currently in the middle of a layout. It is turning out really nicely. Hope it stays that way and ends well. Better go and get some more scrappin done.

Crawl Commando

I LOVE this Fancy Pants transperancy, it took me a while to figure out wether I should cut the photo or not. Love how it turned out, I also was desperate to use the Halloween journalling card on the layout, Love how it came together. Can't wait to do the rest of the papers. What a range.

Went to a girlfriends place to do a little scrapping yesterday, I didn't get as much as I would have liked done, busy chasing the kids around but I got this one done. This layout is using the Fancy Pants Halloween range. Still going!!

Wednesday night

I did this layout last night, I am still using the Fancy Pants paper. This layout came together really quickly. Just one of those layouts that fell together I guess. I have used all my scrap bits to on this layout, I love this range so much I don't want to waste a single bit. I have a few more sheets so stay tuned for more layout

Tuesday night scrapping

I have the scrapping bug at the moment and I want to spend most the time scrapping. It has worked out as Rodney has had things to do on the computer once the kids are in bed so I have gotten to scrap. I have some awesome layouts done to, keep a look out they will be uploaded soon
