Kraft it up- February challenge

I love  the challenges on Kraft it  up and this months colour  challenge really grabbed my eye.  Im not normally one for brights  but I loved these colours together so rifled through my stash and found some really old Rouge Garance papers that were just perfect for what I wanted.....this is my son Josh - .  He has had a big year - he turned 13 in January and on his birthday he started high school.  So now he has to catch a  bus and wear long socks and a hat ( yep - private school!)
he has exceeded my expectations about how he would do and he is loving his new school!!

He is at that age where he HATES  his photo being taken so every one I get is precious!!!!

Scrap with V cyber crop layouts - 18th Feb

So I have had a great day - Shane is at a medical training course all day so Ive been able to chill and scrap and the mojo is  firing so here are my challenges from Scrap with Vs  cybercrop.  The first layout was to be in black, white and red and have love in the words of a song....I went with Huey Lewis and the news Power of Love.....and my lovely son Daniel

The next challenge was a sketch challenge and i dont always like sketches but this one struck me straight away and here is my take - same colour scheme  LOL

I created it like four mini layouts - kinda cute

and here then the third one was a card - with layers , a colour  I love ( i chose red), use the word LOVE and one heart .....this is mine - made from the scraps from challenge 2

and the DT challenge is to use five buttons, paper pleating,  chipbaord and alter it - I have inked mine and then  sprinkled  glitter all over  the Twiddleybitz border and I made a mini Amy Bender heart and lace!!!!

I loved doing this challenge and I have  scrapped up a storm today!!!  and LOVED it!!  Now im off to sit on the couch and chat to my beautiful Doctor!!!  Have a GREAT day and check out the cybercrop HERE

Hanging out with Dad

If yo are familiar with my work you know I love  vintage, shabby  , full pages with lots going on.  SO I am always tempted bya challenge that  pushes me out of this  comfort!!  Leanne at Mad about Scrappin has a negative space challenge  at the moment so of course I had to give it a shot.......and im quite happy with the result.  What do you think???

My school kids = All four!!

Last year was a special year - the only year all of my  children will be at Primary school together so of course when the school photos  came up I had to pay the extra  to get the family  portrait one done and I love it.  I never  love scrapping school photos - I never seem to get it right...but amongst my  vintage sheet music I found this one titled "Little study" I dug out an old Kaiser  paper for the background and the  gloruious amazing  Crate paper restoration papers - my fave in quite some time I think!!  So here are  my  four little  schoolies all together!!!

For me. Its you

Soul scrappers have put  up their second  challenge for their GLEE club competition.  This time the band is TRAIN and the style is ALTERNATIVE.  I  went with a layout of Shane and I at his graduation last year - Drops of Jupiter - song by Train has always held  secial meaning for Shane and I and I am just  so proud of him and what he has acheived with his degree!

For all the details on the competiton - check it out HERE

I still find it a little hard to believe that I am the mother of a thirteen year old!!  Josh started High school and has  had  fabulous  start - facing challenges like catching a bus,  starting at a school with NONE of his friends and dealing with an AMAZING amount of homework!!  Mad about scrappin had a sketch for anyone wanting to apply for the DT - and here is my take on it......

In addition  Shane started at hospital asa REAL LIFE Doctor - he looks  SERIOUSLY HOT  dressed as a Doctor - I just love it!!!!  Despite some initial  nerves - he seems to be  getting more comfortable and  even enjoyed his 14 hour shift last Friday!!!  And I  have also started a new job - I am  the  new Tuckshop convenor at the kids school - 4 days a week, perfect school hours and I get all the  school holidays - who could ask for more!!  I have had everything go wrong that could go wrong from fridges AND freezers  dying to tills not working to electrical problems but I am really  enjoying it - I have  lots of new volunteers  starting this week so once I get a  good work schedule worked out - it will be  time for  some changes and improvements - I cant wait!!!

I am very excited as my gorgeous mate Em should have  her new little  chubbsy bubs  this time tomorrow - I cant wait to go in and meet this   new little person - these guys will be the most fabulous  parents and this is a very long awaited  babe!!!!!  So on that note - see you on the flip side!!!!!
