A mixture of old and new.....


Because I haven't blogged for so long - I have a couple of layouts that have just been sitting here waiting and watching hoping to get some attention paid to them - so here we go.......

A photo shoot of Daniel man - taken August 4 at Lachlans birthday lunch - this kid hates to strike a pose I tell ya!!!!

Not sure if I like this one or not - but its done now - Hahahaha

But I do like this one- I think I did it for white with one in September after Wendy Smith came up - but as usual I forgot to photograph  it and upload it - But I LOVE the photo and the colours worked well...I think so anyway!!!!!!

And a  final photo of my gorgeous hubby and his beautiful daughter!!  Love these two together and they are mad for eah other too- lucky Im not the jealous type!!  Hahah
This was taken at Donnas place in Dalby on the motorbike!!

More old papers and bits and pieces !!!

And that's it until the next time I get away to scrap - hopefully not long!!!!

Part two - show and tell

I know - you thought Id never return but here I am hey!! 

I had some old kits with me on Saturday and decided I needed to work through some of them ( to justify me purchasing more - hahah!!)  and this one just fell together - fairly simple but I really like the colours!!

And then our gorgeous Teleah girl - dressed as Silky for Bookweek - she was so excited about her costume and she looked a wee bit cute too - I love the toothless grin!!  These were more paper scraps from my scraps bag!!

And a final teleah show  and tell.  I did this a few weeks ago and wasn't sure I liked it - but its growing on me and I do LOVE this photo - taken at Emerald Lakes!!

Okay - back again soon!!!!!

Dont be too shocked!!!

Okay - so I don't get to scrap anything like I used to - why?  I don't know - time , effort, Im working, have four kids with ever increasing activities and events to attend!!  Blah blah blah!! 
Mostly I just don't have the same get up and go for it at the moment - but I do love to get away with the girls - for a day, a weekend a, a month and have some serious focussed scrap time!!  And last Saturday I got to do that with a bunch of gorgeous girls!!    So now I have some show and tell!!
here are a couple!!

This is a pretty simple layout but the pictures kinda tell the story - Lachlan was pretending to tip Teleah into the pool!!  Back in May - Donna had purchased a new fabulous background stamp so of course I had to have a play - and on Saturday I found the cardstock Id stamped - so I added some washi tape, some rubons and some buttons....done!!

So whilst Im in a Lachlan kinda mood  here is a photo I love from our July holiday to trippin around Tewantin!!

Another stamped background  from back in July and then some odds and ends I had in a bag!!!
And my final tribute To our beautiful son Lachlan - he turned 14  back in August and we went to lunch with my fabulous aunt and uncle....
More stamps. washi, mist and old rubons! 
Ill be back in a day or two with some more bits!!

When I cant get inspired I flick thorugh some magazines like scrapbook creations or scrapbooking memories and intend to do a scraplift - it almost never looks the same

here is one of those....I just love this background paper!

and a kit that I bought a few weeks ago  it even had VELLUM in it - haven't used that in a while!!!!

My wish for you

Its nice to just scrap for the sake of scrapping without a deadline or a requirement.....I have loved this photo for a while - we have a large one in black and white in our lounge.  The colours just came together and I like the texture of the old doily underneath
