Pieces of Hayles

OMG....I'm totally crank!! Left Damo with kids yesterday arvo for an hour and have continually told him not to keep my scrap room door open. Well I headed in here this arvo after work and I have only just noticed that the last layout I did has been slightly edited!!! Care of Nate....

It doesn't look bad from the photo but trust me it's worse in real life. He has coloured in his face on every pic with green zig, so it's def not coming off plus a few extra scribbles here and there! I'm not so cranky at him but Damo, that;s another story. I'm hoping I can salvage the page by re-printing the pics and trying to replace them.

Weekend of scrapping...

After a few days off work I got around to getting some scrapping done. Friday night I headed to Savvy for a crop night, which was great as I haven't been to one in ages. Surprisingly I got 3 layouts done...

First off is Nate, using the new Cosmo Cricket range, Joyride which is super cute for boys!

another of Nate and his addiction to balls and have used another of my fave ranges, Report Card from October Afternoon...

and lastly Isabelle and I mucking around on New Years Eve....she is such a dag sometimes!!

Moving on to Inspired Blueprints sketch #42, always love doing their sketches!!

I have a few more to share but have my little bro is here at the moment catching up with their wedding goss! They just got back from Fiji, where they finally got married after 11yrs.....I have already stolen their pics to scrap!! LOL

Will finish uploading tomorrow....till then xx

My Happy Little Scrapper....

Ever since Isabelle has been old enough to pick up a glue stick, she has loved scrapping with me. Whenever I scrap she joins me and is actually quiet the whole time, as long as she can scrap with me. So last night she decided she was going to scrap and take her pages to daycare for her news day, and when I got home from work today she quite excitedly told me that all the kids loved her scrapbooking and her teachers did as well. So now I have to "take a picture and put it on the computer like I do with mine" quote!! LOL so cute.

So here is the first page she did....

now she has also started adding photo's to her page, they are actually quite straight surprisingly...

and lastly here is the cute little butterfly they made at school..

It's so nice to have her spend quality time with me.....funnily enough she told her dad all about it and he just rolled his eyes cause I just know what he was thinking and it had to be along the lines...OMG Hayley already spends a fortune what is it going to cost me now!! LOL Love it!!

I have finally decided!!

After seeing everyone talking about the 52 Weeks of Me challenge and all the fab layouts I have decided to join in! I know I am late but I am changing it up a bit and I am going to do 52 Facts about me using pics from all my old albums prior to having kids. I figure I scrap all the pics taken since Belle & Nate where born but there is so much that I did before them that I have to share with them. As well as that I am only going to use scrap papers....I'm scared cause I am so not used to scrapping 8.5 x 11 but definitely looking forward to digging up some old memories.

I have one last layout to share from last week which was a pic of Isabelle and her cousin Abbey....it is the sweetest photo although Isabelle looks like a total grot!!

Out of my comfort zone

So on the weekend I attempted something that I hardly ever do....Cards!! I figured it was a great way to use up my scraps but in saying that I would need to make about ten thousand cards!! LOL

So first off I made a card for my friends new baby, Mason and I am really happy how it turned out

then I got all motivated and made another two cards, another for my cousins new bub, Natasha and a spare. I used the old Crate paper range Little Sprout, I think it was called, which was perfect for new bubs.

Might have to give it another go soon i think...
