I went to Spotlight the other day and bought some fibre ribbon, seen on this layout, but also some other bits and bobs to try on some layouts. I want to get a little adventourous with what I do with my layouts. I am open for suggestions if anyone has any.
Be prepared I am going to be doing a bit of a giveaway soon on my blog so if you want to be in the running for some free scrapbooking stuff it will be put up hopefully be the end of the weekend. I will be running it for about a week. So I will keep you posted.

Can you tell.........

Can you tell I am a bit of a Kaisercraft fan. How define are there papers. I just love there paper ranges out at the moment. I know these papers are not new but they are gorgeous never the less. I have been on a bit of a role at the moment with scrapping. Love it when I am in this sort of mood.
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.

Another layout with Kaiser

Summer Fun layout, Love this paper range, this is the second layout of this range I think this paper is great with the photos of Cody.

Here is a layout I have done, love these Cogs from A2Z Scraplets, I have played around with most of them now. Love the bigger ones the most. I can't get enough of them. I love this photo of Cody, I find my kids at this age to be so photo-genic it is just when they get older they seem to be so over getting there photo taken (that probably wouldn't have anything to do with the fact that there mother is slightly obsessed with taking photos) They seem to start wanting to do those bunny ears and pulling photos as they get older. As Cody who is 2 seems so unaware of the camera and I get more natural shots.

Weekend in Sydney

Rodney's work does a summer bash in Feburary each year. So we were flown to Sydney and our motel was the Novatel at Darling Harbour. It was really lovely room. Our view from our Motel room (as shown in the picture below) was spectacular. It was so nice just to hang out. With my hubby Rodney. We haven't had time away for about 9 months. So we were really hanging out for some away time.
Laing O'Rouke have a seminar on the Saturday and have speakers. They had a women who was a team leader in Antartica, she was really interesting to hear her story. They also had the explosive expert that got the miners out from the Tasmania mines. Wow his story was very moving and very touching. He had alot of pressure on him and stress.

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

So my weekend was a really lovely weekend. My favourite part though was just being able to spend time with my hubby and chat. I love my boys with all my heart but it is nice to have a conversation with him without being inturrupted every 5 seconds.

Yeah a girl layout

It isn't often I get to use such pretty girl papers with a house hold of boys, but found this photo and had these papers. Love this paper from Imaginisce, how pretty is it!!!!! I have also done another layout with it, exccept I don't have a photo, I want the right sort of photo on it so I will add it later. I love using circles, I am trying to get out of my comfort zone and layer my paper a bit differently when I do use a circle. The art of scrapbooking is a work in progress, and I don't think we ever get there, it is always changing and inspiring us.
