Brotherly love

Hubby  has been working  night shift  and there is  something about the quiet house. late at night and I feel like  scrapping and last  night was quite a productive night.  First up I did this  one - my take on the sketch at Scrapbook savvy.  I had to shrink the sketch to use these pics - there was a lot of ackground I didnt need or want.  I  gotta say  I love these  colours together -  a bit yummy!!

123 challenge

The  very gorgeous Giovanna Scott has set the challenge over at 123  this  month and it caught my eye on facebook so I set down this morning and  actually DID IT!!!  The challenge was the word MAKE,  make  something and the colour is my take

this is a pic of me and my little sister about 40 years ago!!

And the years go by

I have  some  very old paper but I still really like them so I am determined to try and work my way through them before I  go buying more and more.....I have done a massive cleanout this year so that helps......I loved the Bo Bunny Mamarazzi  when it came out and i have loads of is one of the layouts I did at Donnas  to use it  up...

The first little pic is Shane and I as  best man and bridesmaid at our best mates  wedding -  20  years  ago next year - Holy  shit!!
The middle  one is  us  one Christmas BC ( before children ) and the final one is us at Shanes graduation last year .  We are coming up to  22 years together and 15 years married - wowser- time  flies when you are having fun!!!

Some Daniel love.....

This  kid  can drive you crazy but he is the most  lovable, affectionate, comical  character - just love him to bits.  He is so  easy to scrap too- he is very photogenic and doesnt  make a  carry on for photos  either!!  I think most of my published work - would  be Daniel!!

This  kind of started out as a scraplift of a fabulous layout  from the  amazing Lauren Bell but as usual about the only thing the same is the background paper and some red.....Oh well!!  They boys  duct taped Daniel to a palm across the road and then started pelting him  with  water pistols I think??
Classic photo opportunity!!

I then did this layout using papers from a kit I got at Wicked Princesses - excellent  boy  papers and embellies - That Krissy is so clever!!!!

The Whitehouse retreat

So here are a couple more layouts  from the Whitehouse retreat -  the first is actually   from back  in August  because I forgot to bring it home....HAHAHA

Oops - just  noticed a piece of foil ( hmmm maybe chocolate?) under  the orange shirt on the clothesline.....

This second layout is using one of my own kits - I love this photo of my niece and Teleah together - so  cute!!!

It was SO  nice to spend some time with  14  girls who are  all fabulous - funny ,clever , supportive and amazingly  talented.  Donna  had us all place our layouts  up on her long wall- with blutac - and the wall looked unreal!!!!    When I get some pics of it - I'll post them here.  I had to take  all four of my kids and they had a ball-  Thanks  to all the girls  who let me bring them!!!

Love a grungy boy paper

I have three sons - all  teens  or tweens so scrapping starts to  be a  bigger challenge - no more cutesy papers, no more characters and dress ups - now its all about the attitude - HAHAH .

Thats why I loved this paper from Scrapfriends - they  have an amazing variety and stuff you have never seen  anywhere else.....SO  cool!!!!   Here is a fabbo  boy  page I did on the weekend at Donnas.....
Cool paper  huh - add a  photo and some  bits and pieces and you are done -  gotta love that!!!
