My beautiful Mum turns 70  shortly  so I scrapped this for her - us 3 kids - my  fabulous brother  and sister - love them to pieces!!!

and I took this one of the kids on the top of the hill near us  a  few months ago - i just love it - they look like great adventurers - hahah

Thanks Lauren Bell for the perfect lettering !!  What would I do without you???

and one or two for the boys

I recently did a class with the divine Miss Krissy - clever  beyond words!!  I always LOVE her  boy layouts so I did a boy class with her and used  the leftovers from her class kit - cos shes so good to me!!  I managed this fabulous class layout and then  heaps more with the leftovers - One of my FAVORITE boy ranges in a while!!!!

The photo is just perfect for the layout and another Andrea Thompson shot!!!!

and here is what I managed with the scraps.....

Lots of misting and stamping......loving those colours and one of my fave  photos of the boys and their Mcr boy cousins

and  this one.....

my spunky monkey Daniel......

A couple of bright ones just to SHOCK you!!!

Im not known for my bright layouts - I love them when other people do them - I just dont seem to be able to pull them off so well....but here is one I did recently  - I bribed the kids - they could pull silly faces if I got one nice one.....took a while!!!!

And a cutie of Teleah and her cousin Jessica.....

Here are  some more layouts - I have been working my way through some of my old papers - I figured I just cant keep buying more when Im not using whats in my stash!!!  Hmmm....could take a while....anyway - here are two layouts I cranked out with one of the paper packs in my stash!!

and a layout  dedicated to the pink one in the family!!!!

Donnas clever daughter Mandy took these pics when we were in Dalby last year - Teleah loved being dressedup, hair done and then photographed - SUCH a girl!!!!

a scraplift and some late night scrapping....

Flicking through last months Scrapbooking Memories I was inspired by a layout by Jasmine Shea ( page 133) and I had some fabulous Jo sonja paints on my desk so was tempted to give her layouts a scraplift....here is my result.....SO love that colour combination....Thanks Jasmine!!

Another Andrea Thompson photo too- love this one !!!!

Oh and LATE at night I was just playing around with  this colour combo and I really  really like it and AGAIN - another of Andreas photos - its also my Facebook header!!!

Titled "You are my life " - what did I do with myself before these people came along?
I know I had more money and more time!!  BUT I laugh more and love more and they are sending me grey but I wouldnt change a day!!!!!  They seriously rock my world!!!
The background papwers are Graphic 45 - cool huh!!  Love it with the red and yellow!!!!

Some boy stuff......

I love scrapping the boys - they are cool ages  now - a bit  challenging  to scrap sometimes....the hard  bit is to even get a photo of the 14 year old!!!!  Here are some of the recent boy layouts.....

Sharreena gave me these pics from the retreat we went to at Donnas.....so of course I had to scrap them.  The kids are mine, Donnas and Sarahs and they had a ball with a hose, a trampoline and some shampoo!!  Lets just say they were very clean!!!!

The next one is a layout I love - just my three boys clowning around in their new hats - check out the look on Daniels face......

They were all just scraps of bits and pieces I had on the desk and I kinda like the way it turned out and I love the trimmed down photo in black and white......and then this one - brighter than usual for me........

Ive had lots of fun getting my stamps out and using them more on my backgrounds ...Krissy influence I think  - her  boy layouts  always look fabulous!!!

Thanks for looking -  still more to come !!!!
