Scrapbook savvy

So  lots of the sites I used to play with and  be with have closed their forums and sometimes when I dont feel like scrapping I still feel like chatting!!!  So I  have had my eye on Scrapbook savvy for a while  - my firend Donna plays ther  so thought it was time to drop in  and say HI.  Tehy have some awesome monthly challenges including this one  = Its a ABC challenge and you are  given some criterion for the letters of the alphabet....this one is X and W
X for some word which means yellow!!   and  kisses
and W  for white and writing.....

I am enjoying scrapping the boys at the moment so thought I would  do one for  that!

Here is the finished product - yellow and  little  Xs for the kisses and W  for white  title and writing -  my journalling.  This is my  second  son Lachlan - SUPER DUPER  scary  smart!!  He had just  been invited to  participate in the inaugural  Junior comets (  like an advanced class) along with nine other kids to participate in a series of  challenges!!!

Some layouts from the Uproar retreat

So I have  come  home from an amazing weekend with  some of my favourite women from around Australia - they flew in from Perth, Tasmania, Melbourne and me from a whole 2 suburbs away - LOL.
I maintained my reputation - and stayed up all night the first night with the gorgeous  Belynda and Sarah - chatting , scrapping and  making the most of the time we had together!!!!
I am going to share a couple of the layouts I did but I will do a few at a  time and  some I cant share yet!!
I also have to Thank Ness from Scrap with V who supplied us with a FABULOUS  selection of  fabulous products - I also  got to meet  her and the fabulous Annette - it was  so great to meet them!!
I managed 15 layouts, 1 card, two twinchies and an off the page  box......not bad !!

Here are a couple of them!!

My lovely Mum as a little girl.  We  all made a  gift  box and  then  supplied  little handmade gifts  to include in all the boxes.  From the box we won - we had to use at least 5 items to create a card or layout....this was mine...

Next is this...

This was a kit from the gorgeous Emma  that I have had sitting in my stash for over a year!!

and these beautiful October afternoon papers

and the final one for today -

My gorgeous  cheeky boys - missed them  on the weekend but I love coming home to the kisses and  hugs....

We are  looking at  doing the same thing again later this year so I hope I can  go again - !!!!

Thanks  girls and thanks Dalena for organising such a fabulous weekend!!!
