I've been busy!

Well, it's new years eve tomorrow and also gorgeous little Max-ys 1st birthday. So I decided to whip up tonight a nice lil album for him.

Photos used are from his trip to London with his mummy and daddy, Ray and Gemma. I went a bit camera crazy cos he is just too cute.

Products used on album were a bit limited unfortunately as some of my scrapping stuff is still in storage....I used a kaiser train as the base.

I took photos on my phone, it's 1am so not the best light! The album is still not bound either, will pop into Chandon and get some jump rings in the morning.




























That's all for now...

Trying to think of my resolutions for the new year and my 'word' for the year....hopefully next update I can include it.

Happy New Year everyone!

Testing from my iphone

Wow....just downloaded a blogger app to my iPhone. This could be really cool.

Since I've updated twice tonight, I'll leave with a photo of my scrapping stash slowly taking over dads dining room.




And the owl bag I got from Michelle for Christmas.



Haha, this is cool!

- Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone

A new page......

Wanted to update with my first page I have scrapped since coming back to Australia...used the B side of the new 'Origin' Basic Grey line......loving the graph paper look and my thickers from my studio calico kit. Tried to make this page look slightly dimensional by curling the corners of clouds and machine sewing the butterflies in the middle, then bending their winds inwards.

Layout title: I'm starting to feel....




Supplies Used: Basic Grey patterned paper, Sassafras Lass patterned paper, Scenic Route patterned paper, American Crafts Thickers, Making Memories alphabet stickers, Prima flower, Bazzill crochet flower, Kaiser Rhinestones, My Minds Eye Journaling Card, Basic Grey fabric brad, My Minds Eye Transparency, orange ribbon, staples.



Really happy with the style my scrapping has been taking lately.....not stressing me out, not taking hours on end - and I'm happy with the end result - can't ask more than that!
