New layout

Well I can finally breathe a HUGE sigh of RELIEF!!!!!!!!!!! MY kiddies performed at our assembly today!!!!!!!! Its all over......that has been a huge stress the past week....I must say they did look pretty cute.

However, now its REPORT time!!!!!!!!!!!! Ahhhhh..............does it ever end?!?!?!

Apart from that I am fine :o) Can you tell??? haha

I have been scrapping up a storm!!!!!!!! I did 3 pages yesterday!!!Thats lots for me, in all the spare time I have (huh!). I can share a couple with you now.....

The first, I have finally got a book of me cover page completed, and this page fits into the 123 Monthly challenge too!!! To use 3 patterned papers, transparency and flowers.

Products used: 2 sheets of Autumn Leaves patterned paper, 1 sheet of Jenni Bowlin patterned paper, Heidi Swapp kiwi small flower, Heidi Swapp photo corner, Bazzill Bitty Blossoms (Various colours), buttons, Autumn Leaves journalling block, metal butterfly, Kaiser Craft jewels, transparency sheet.


The next page is one I completed at Bons Scraps, a scrap site I am just loving at the moment. If I had spare cash right now I could easily spend it in the store, the prices are fantastic!!
The page was for the Monthly Layout Competition - to create a 'Mummyism' page - to scrapbook something your mum has taught you. My page is about how mum has taught me to appreciate the time spent with loved ones!!! The quality of the photo of the layout is terrible though!!! Much more vibrant in real life. This is using my Poppy Ink kit and some things from my stash.

* LAYOUT REMOVED FOR PUBLICATION...... WhoooooHoooooo :o)

Products used: Sassafrass pp, american crafts pp, jenni bowlin pp, american crafts hatbox chip letters, queen and co letters, heidi swapp chip letters, making memories flower, ek success letter stickers, heidi swapp clock, basic grey rub on

Well they're all the layouts I have to share, but hopefully I will have plenty more after this weekend. This weekend I am going to visit my lovely aunty in Melbourne, we are going to the Scrapbook Scene all day crop. It is on Saturday from 9.30am - 11pm. I am so pumped!!! Can't wait.....I am planning on getting stuck into some challenges at Bons and finish a mini album for a lady at work!! We will have to see.....

Other life (non-scrapping) is good. Went to Clint's best friends wedding two weekends ago. It was soo nice.....will have to share a couple of photos, though I am sure you will see them on scrapping pages soon!!! haha

We had tea on Saturday with a family friend of Clints and his girlfriend. She is from England and has been sharing 'sight-seeing talk' with us and photos. I am getting pretty excited!! We have around 7 months to go now, which really is not long, considering how fast this year has gone.

Well I am getting mega tired and need to go to beddy byes, take care, I'll post again soon, xoxoxoxo

By the way - I was quick enough to get those Finishing Touches rub ons! Did anyone else??

Raquel, I love those layouts. The Book of Me LO is gorgoeus.

I was lucky enough to be the 2nd last one to get the FTI rubons and they came in the mail yesterday.

Glad the kidlets did good at their assembly.
