Scrapping just for fun.....

This Is a pic from a Noosa photo a few years ago now....we LOVE the National Park there and always spend a bit of time there......this pic of my boys is at the entrance.....its hard to tell whose what age here!!  I used lots of paper scraps agin and some washi tape and some stamping.....

So now Im up to date I might even head to the desk and make some more mess!!!

Scrap the boys....January!!

Hi again - Yep - two posts in a row - trying to catch up with stuff before I go and make more mess.....I decided I needed to try and do some of the challenges ....Iremember a time when I would be doing ALL of them in a month - last year I only blogged 11 times in total so what does that tell you!!!

ANYWAY _ here is my Scrap the Boys layout for scrap something NEW about your boys......I had lots of ideas for this but settled on doing a layout for Lachlan...this pic was taken by Andrea Thompson and it was just before Lachlan finished Year 7 and moved onto High school.

  This kids is amazing in so many ways - clever beyond his years with the memory of an elephant and he proved this by graduating Year seven as Dux of the school - the highest academic award possible there!!!  So this is about him going off to make a NEW start.....again made with lots of scraps and bits and pieces left over from retreats and crops.....I like the colours in this one and the addition of a few old rubons added to a more teenage feel!!

Thanks for taking the time to have a look!!!

Happy New Year!!!

Yes I know - don't freak out - Its January and Im back blogging hey!!  Amazing times we live in - hahahaha!!   OR the fact that my lovely hubby went on  a road trip with the little peeps for three days so I have actually had UNINTERRUPTED time!!!!! 
The funniest bit is I was lost without them for the first half day and now Im getting into this and Id like a few more days....HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA - but a few more hours will have to do!!
SO I thought id do some show and tell......I have a couple of layouts from late last year that I never  got down on here and I actually scrapped the other night so I have those too............

My first piece of show and  tell is a layout I did of my DH and I....using scraps...Ive had bags of scraps left over from retreats and crop days  etc and Ive had a great time scrapping layouts from those scrap fact some of my favourite layouts have come from these offcuts!!!!

We have just celebrated 24 years together and 17 of those as a married him more today than I did back then!!!  We both feel extremely fortunate to live the life we do and to be able to do it together!! 

Okay - enough mushy is a pretty layout of my daughter and I having some fun  taking selfies......a simple layout but I like the colours!

And I think this selfie was taken around the same time...the last time I printed photos I did some as Square....I like it for something different!!!

I really  liked the colours in this one and the cool green and white straw at the bottom of the photo is from the fabulous Miss Tracey Thorne.....Thanks !!!!

Be back soon with some stuff from this year!!!!
