Colour Inspiration

I only have a few layouts to share tonight and the first is from the new challenge blog called Colour Inspiration. They have a gorgeous colour palette, as below and I couldn't wait to play with these colours!

For the first time in ages I actually have done a double page.... but these photo's of Isabelle learning to fly her kite and the new October Afternoon Fly a Kite range were needed

So that's it for now....I'm off to go and cheer for the Mighty Blues!!!

Challenge Heaven Sketch

This month I did a sample for the sketch over at Challenge Heaven using Sass Lass papers which are always great for a fun layout. Love this pic of Belle trying to curl her tongue. She sat there for like about an hour trying to curl it, as did Damo and I as well as we are not tongue curlers at all. Then Nate walks up looks at us all and justs curls his tongue perfectly and walks off! So Funny!!

There are many more great challenges so head on over and check them out....

So many layouts

we have finally finished laying our floorboards throughout the house so things are finally back together and I realise I haven't shared any of my layouts for quite some time. I actually needed to print photo's today and realised I had over 500 as I hadn't printed since December, my gosh where does the time go??

Firstly I went to a Savvy crop a couple of weeks ago and got two layouts done.....one has been picked up by Scrapbooking Memories and this was the other using some of my scraps from my ever growing pile...

this one is the May sketch at Scrapbook Savvy by Anthea and I have used old range again which was Joyride

i have used a sketch from somewhere for this one but have no idea now where.....so sorry whomever for not mentioning..

This was a sketch from Creative Scrappers, once again papers from my scrap stash....I am determined to use them up!!

and just one more for the moment, and I once again used a Creative Scrappers sketch.

Holiday update....

Well two weeks of my hols has passed, and really in the scrapping sense, I have nothing to show. It has been a flat out 2 weeks between our 8yr wedding anniversary, Natey Boy's 2nd Birthday, pulling up all the carpet in our house and replacing them with floorboards,Mothers Day, Isabelle's birthday on Thursday and now I have the flu!

So anyway here are some pics of my handsome little boy on his birthday....he looks so grown up with his new spike haircut!

Cuddles with Mum in the morning.....

the awesome train cake that Damo & I made ( we were so proud of ourselves..lol)

and one of his pressies...Woody, he so loves him!

I have managed to attend on Savvy crop last Friday and got a couple of pages done. but will have to share them later as I'm not exactly sure were they are at the moment.
So thats the update for now....will be back in action soon....fingers crossed!!
