Happy Halloween haunting!!!!

Yes I know - some of you are going to say _ " I dont do Halloween  - its so American ".....Yep - well I am not  religious but I still do Easter and  Christmas just because they are  fun and I like the spirit of them  - SO it is the same for Halloween!!  The kids   get to dress up and visit the neighbors and get   a dose of  junk for the next month!!  Our street  do an awesome  Halloween night  - loads of kids   get involved and we have  kids come from everywhere.......I may  have even been known to  wear a scary hat !!  SO these are the Halloween  layouts  I have recently  done - ready for a new dose of scary photos!!

and this one

SO  happy Halloween!!

Scrapbook savvy cybercrop

Sometimes I need  a challenge to fire me up and  get me back into scrapping and so I  needed  that prod  on FRiday night!!  Lucky for me the  Cybercrop was on  over at Scrapbook Savvy  and I even got a couple of challenges done - WAHOOOOOOOO

Very cool sketch  from Sara   and  this one......

 Required layers and distressing and paint and/or mist!!!

So pop in and take a look -   I am  hoping to get a third challenge  done also!!

So lucky!!

I count my  blessings every day - I have the  most  fabulous  husband - Love him dearly and have for almost  22 years!!  OMG - where did that time go!!!  Together we have  had four  children - not bad for a couple who were having none!!  Anyway recently we spent a  fabulous day together  out at Binna Burra - in the  mountains of the Gold Coast.  We went for a bushwalk and came across this awesome river and  waterfall-  this is one of the  photos I took on the day!!

Of course I chose  a vintage inspired  kit and  so    this is what I created .....

Life lessons.....

As a parent - you always  want to do the best by your children.  You want them to be happy.  You want them to  be  genuine good people.....Getting them there gives you some appreciation for how hard a job it really is!!!! 

They drive you crazy - REALLY crazy sometimes....they drain all the energy  from you sometimes......and then there are those times when they are sitting in the car and the four of them are having a conversation about why their Mum is the best Mum and it brings tears to your eyes.

We are off on a  short weekend  getaway tomorrow and we cant wait!!!  Our AFL  team play in the Grand final on Saturday and we will be catching up with some  great friends so  all in all it will be a  wicked  weekend - especially if the CATS  win!!!!  Haha!!

So speaking of  raising kids -  that litle  dribble  came about from this layout- the  strip joournal bits were part of one of the bits of paper I had and it started the whole layout,.....and I love this pic of Miss Teleah!!!!!


LOVE  the colour scheme and LOVE LOVE LOVE  this little girl!!!!
