My Mothers Day card, I don't think I am a great card maker. Some people do the most fantastic cards, but I must admit I was really proud of myself to whip this one up. I love these Forever Friends bears. They are my favourite cards, so when I saw that you can buy stuff to make your own I was so excited

This albums comes with 8 pages, and one hole, that I tied ribbon through it. My little book is really bulky because I have added all the blossom flowers, but I love bulk on my off the page items and layouts. This album I did on my son. I wanted it to be really special, and just a little keep sake for me of the day I spent with him when he was first born.
For more Kaisercraft off the page ideas, or to see what items they have available click Kaisercraft I think they have the best off the page in the industry. Such a massive selection, so easy to use, and so much fun.
Here is my 9 layouts that I have done for the Kaisercraft Design Team. Kaisercraft asked for 8 layouts, but I have done so many layouts with Kaiser I added another one. Most of these are my most favourite layouts, and I don't think I do to bad using 'girly' papers when I have all boys in my family.
Layout number 2. This is a photo of my HUGE massive belly to my fourth son. this paper range is one of Kaisercraft older ranges. I have had it sitting far ages in my stash, but loved using it, especially with the Kaisercraft wooden cherish word. I have hand made all the flowers from left over scrap paper and made my butterfly with lace, and left over scrap paper also. I have also used a dolley.
Here is my two layouts that I have used the Magic Happens paper range. This paper range is just stunning. The thing that I found hard was that I had to buy lots of it as I loved both sides of the paper so much I couldn't decide which one to use. Ohhh and the Kasiercraft dolleys, LOVE THEM. I must confess, I loved everything about this range, all the papers, all the embellishments, butterfly, matching dolleys, the matching blossoms. Loved it.
On this layout I have use the Utopia paper range. I was a bit nervous at first using this paper range with my son, it has purples and flowers, not that I am afraid to use flowers on a boy layout, I was just not sure how much purple I could use on a layout without making it to feminine. Once I sat down and started organising my papers, I realise this paper range was fantastic for boys, as it had the bright blue and greens. I thought with the towel having a bit of purple in it this paper range was fantastic to use with this paper. I had heaps of fun using this paper range, I also used the Kaisercraft stamps for flourishes, and some of the Kaisercraft rub ons.
This is another layout using they Chanteuse Coleection. This layout is using my left over paper from my first original one that features a few layouts above, and I also wanted to use my left over embellishments. I try and use up every bit of paper that I have, whether that would be layouts, or off the page or a card. I try and do it straight away, I know if I put my scraps away I tend to not go back and use them, so I have been trying to get into a habit to use them up straight away.
This is one of my favourite photos of my son. He was being really photogenic on the day I took this photo, and then when I saw this paper range from Kaisercraft Bubblegum Hills paper range.
I must admit I went a bit nuts. I soooo adore this paper, I love all the colours in it, and love though it has pink in it it was really complimented with alot of blues and greens so it could be used for either sex. I have made my own embellishments on this layout, and used the pattern paper for embellishments and I have used teh journalling card. I had so much doing this layout.

Here is my layout for my technique that I just uploaded to the A2Z Scraplet website, feel free to jump on and see the step by step instructions on how to use this technique, it is really simple and easy.
This layout I do like using things like the corragated cardboard, i love the affect it gives, and it bulks the layout so much more. I was really happy with how the scraplet turned out. something a little bit different and out of the box.

(Oh no not more photos!!!!!)

Here is another layout that i have done. I have made some of the flowers with playing with some scrap paper. I am right into making your own flowers at the moment.
My family has started to do the alphabet weekends. This is where you do something on the weekend starting with the letter A and working your way through the alphabet. We went to the Art museum in Brisbane. Well I was thinking it would be boring and we would look at some weird paintings on the wall and try and figure out what the hell it is and that was it. Well I was so wrong. Art has hit the new ages and wow is it techno now. I was really impressed, they also had so much there to do for the kids. It was amazing, some things are stills strange and my eldest son Donovan did question how some plastic milk bottles with some string over it could be art, and I had to agree but it was a great day. I took heaps of photos, and I am going to be starting up an alphabet album so I can record these things we do. The next one is we are going to go to the Beach for B. hopefully the weather will hold off. Fingers crossed

I love this photo of Jordy. He is just so cute with his orange lips. It never ceases to amaze me that kids love food that discolours there lips. They think it is the best thing.

Then came the Summer bash dinner. It is nice to be able to get all dressed up. I think this year they did a great job. Jessica Mauboy came and sang a few songs. She was really great. Justice Crew was there, they did some dancing. It was really great
