Twiddleybitz love and some inspiration....

This woman Ingvild Bolme is  one of those Off the charts amazing talents -  I just love her work and have followed for her for ages....her  blog is HERE - most of  you would already know her and for those who dont -  Now you will!!!

Anyway I saw a page she  did a LONG  time ago with some  Prima papers that I had in my stash - so this is a semi scraplift or Ingvild Bolme inspired layout.....the left hand side with the lace and  the cut paper....and  the beautiful Twiddleybitz  hanging sign was PERFECT  for this  stunning  photo from Andrea Thompson  photo.  We had a family photo shoot back in November and Andrea  was amazing !! Her  website is HERE
Expect to see some more  amazing  photos in my  layouts!!

Thanks for looking !!

Scrapbook savvy cybercrop.....

Lucky me - Sar and the crew at Scrapbook Savvy had their cybercrop  on at the weekend and I had a husband working all weekend  so  I decided   to get into gear and give it a shot!!!

I loved  Saras challenge once I identified that I did have the right colours  somewhere in my stash - thank goodness for scraps and washi tape!!    here is my layout/.....

I love what it documents - each year  the kids  have their pic taken with Santa and every year I think it will be my last...Josh is 14 in a couple of weeks so I figure I must be getting close!!
In the meantime I love that the kids do it ...for their Mum!!!

And this is kerryns puzzle challenge.....thought Id struggle  with some of the pieces  but it all fell together  quite easily.  I love the pics of the Christmas tree before  we go to bed......before the destruction and chaos of the next morning!!

Its my happy face.....

I have this enormous pile of layouts on my desk - some need to be photographed,  some need to   be blogged, some need  to just be thrown out - HAHAH .  They all need to be put in albums!!  There are so many that need albums it intimidates me......I have the albums,  I have the sleeves,  Goodness knws I have the layouts....just no motivation to try and get it all together.  It will require days,  and lots of floor space and that  just all seems  crap so I continue to stockpile them.....ho hum.....

Hopefully I am not going to  duplicate these but if I have - sorry!!

SOme of these are from my last  day at Donnas - I  spent a girls weekend at Dalby - complete with all four children!!  Otherwise I couldnt go at all and I was  hassled, nagged and had my arm twisted behind my back....Okay Donna  asked me to come with the I HAD  to do it .

 There are just some things you HAVE  to do for  a mate!!!  Im so glad we went - had a ball as usual - so many gorgeous scrappers  there....some ugly ones  too but   I dont like to name them.....they  know who they are....poor things !!!

ANYWAY here is some show and tell.....

and the same crazy kid tied up to a palm tree across the road??

My cutie  pie niece and daughter.....


Back later with some  more show and tell!!!  I have  to clear  this desk!!!!
