A challenge over at Debs...scrap a special moment that means so much to you. I was flicking through my pics and saw this pic of Josh and realised that his arrival was probably the single biggest change in my life - becoming a parent - responsible for someone else for everything - food, shelter, love - everything!! So of course that is what I had to scrap ! And he was such a cute bubba - now hes 11!!
I am running an online class at www.Scrapofdifference.com.au using the DIVINE My Minds Eye Bella papers - so far I have created three layouts if you buy the total kit - for only $19. It will give you the complete kit and access to the closed forum for the online class...alternately you can purchase the single kit for one layout - which is $8 . If you take a look at the forum - there is a peek at the layout. There is a boy version and a girl version available !!! So come and take a look!!
If you are in , on or near the Gold Coast - there are a few of us having a scrap - catch up day on Friday 29th May - email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to join in the fun!!! And I can send you the details.....come for as little or as long as you want!!!
The latest ATC swap at BDebs Creations is an animal theme - so of course I had to go witht he new puppy - Daisy - and do a Maltese Shihtzu. Our baby girl is now three weeks old and has her eyes open- We cant wait to get her!!!!
My youngest boy is 7 - and he is my mischeif maker - iF theres trouble hes there, if something is broken hes there, if the boys have a fight hes there....he doesnt mean to - he just needs to take time to think. So this layout is for him - a challenge over at Enchanted scrapbooking - "The best things in life are free " - Time to think is free - he just needs to do it!! I had fun making this page - so many textures and bits! Just the way I like it!
I have been working on the classes for June that I will be offering at The Scrapbook Cupboard here on the GOld Coast and two of them I am loving and I cant share it with any of you - Its secret cupboard business.

I woke up this morning and felt like scrapping - dont you just love that- its always a good sign for me. This is my take on the May challenge at Scrap the boys - To use Grow or Time in your title and use measurement embellies - I have included clocks, tape measures, tape measure paper, and I included a pic of the boys as littlies and one from now.....Its very busy - But I like it - Thanks for dropping by....
I love this quote and used it for this layout of Shane and I for a competition at Enchanted scrapbooking - a new online place to play....I used Heidi swapp apers and kaiser and vintage music, rolled up book page. metal heart lace and flowers and a cute transparency....
HI - well last night I got to do some scrapping as Shane worked until late...HAHA
So I did the challenge at 123 challenge blog- different alphas, 3 ribbons in different ways and journal spots....and the second is a negative space challenge from mandy at Debs Creations....Miss P when she was little and had no hair - thats why the question mark title!!
