Boyz Rule

Here is a layout I did for A2Z, Loved using these papers, love rustic papers for boys. I find it really hard to get nice boy papers especially once they get out of that little. more baby paper. So I have to grab it when I see it. I also love the Boyz Rule from A2Z, I think it is perfect. I have been doing a bit of scrapping lately, busy, busy, especially leading up to this time of year. Busy doing Christmas shopping as well. I can't believe Christmas is only a month away. Where has this year gone??

This is the next kit for my classes available. Love this paper from Imaginisce. These photos were taken at the Brisbane science centre where Jordy went on an excursion for school. They have a dinosaur exhibit there. Jordy being his goofy self is acting scared!!!! I thought these papers were perfect for the photo. Had them laying around for ages, just goes to show that the right paper comes up eventually for photos. Just got to hang in there long enough.

In memory of my son, Harrison

My son, Harrison passed away on the 15th September 2010 after living for only 28hours. At the hospital that looked after him, the Mater Mothers hospital, brisbane Australia, I have been scrapping these little cards. As families that have lost a baby sometimes donate bears back in the memory of the baby that they lost. So I have been busy scrapping these cards so they can be pinned to the bears. I went up today to make my first delivery. This is the bear I have donated in memory of my gorgeous little boy Harrison. I hope this bear brings comfort to some other family, and I hope that these cards show that someone out there knows and feels for what they are going through. These cards were made with alot of love. I wouldn't wish it upon anyone to lose there precious baby. I hope they touch someone.

this is my layout for the November sketch for A2Z Scraplets. I have been doing a bit of scrapping lately, and loving it. I am having a crop night on Saturday night, I am totally looking forward to it. Just sitting with the girls and scrapping away. So need that time, I am also looking forward to the following weekend, I am going up to Sams for a scrapping weekend. I am so looking forward to doing that. A weekend of scrapping is great therapy. I guess I need to start organising my stuff to go.

I must be a sucker for punishment

I must be a sucker for punishment, Donovan's birthday is on Christmas eve so each year we let him have a couple of friends over in November for his birthday. Well not really thinking about it organised his friends over the night after Cody's birthday, so this meant we had cake coming out of our ears. I made 2 cakes, so glad there won't be any need for cake making for a little while. I love this photo, can't wait to scrap it. My big boy is turning 12, I can't believe it. Where have the years gone

Birthday time

It was Cody's birthday yesterday, He turned 2. Wow how quick 2 years fly by. Well I made him a tractor cake. I had to rush a little bit with decorating as we did a morning tea with a couple of friends. so we were running out of time. It looked really cute. We made some alterations to it from the book as it wanted us to use all these different type of icings. So I decided to just use butter icing and get the white icing for the windows. Cody had a great day, he loved me baking and loves to get to lick the spoons, so hence the photo with chocolate all over his mouth. He was having a great time. He was very spoilt though with all his presents.

First Sight Layout

Here is my layout that is on the A2Z scraplet blog page, this is when I met my son Harrison for the first time after he was born. I am doing this album up with loads of journalling so that I don't forget anything about my beautiful boys short little life. I find scrapping about him and doing his blog 'Harrison's Story' really good therapy. Also I only have 28 hours of memories so there isn't many but those that I do have I want to make the most of, so here is one of his layouts for his album.
