Couldn't help myself felt something was missing... and it was
This is a picture of DD chanel who turns 6 in april (my baby is getting bigger boo hoo) and her best friend vanessa. These two were inseperable and huge gasbaggers all year. Chanel is starting at a new school this year and will miss vanessa hugely... I wanted to do a layout of the two of them so she will always remember vanessa and how much she adored her... MUST remember to type journaling on all layouts whenever I see my handwriting first word that comes to mind "YUK". This is my latest challenge I attempted and it only took me 1 hr. This is the first time I have done scrapjack ... but how quick was it to complete I Love it.. for more info on the scrapjack challenge (open to everyone) go to this link

Ok so I admit it im a touch spoilt

... but what ever u do dont tell my hubby i admit to it. Gary has put all this together for me and the white shelves with lots of little squares i bought down at bunbury thingz .. That would be my first love for the shelving dept when gary put it up i admired it for days. One of the best ideas i have come up with is the ribbons all being strung together on a cork board for those who know me well i have a fettish for ribbons hmmm that is only one of my cork boards at present i have 2 however my bf Lisa has mentioned that big w/ red dot has huge cork boards mmm it is on my list of things to get.

Old Times

This photo of me and gaz was done in Qld on our first family holiday this is his fav all time pic...

Brothers Always

My newest project using Grungeboard & Bohemia paper line which i purchased in QLD 12mths ago... collections wings 7 gypsies crown hiedi swapp clocks... i also used my cuttlebug on the paper and lways lettering once painted i swiped gently over a ranger antique photo distress pad oh yeah and i used the new ranger distress crackle paint and then glossy accented it the star is from collections and that got put through the cuttlebug.... hmm what didnt go through the cuttlebug ... i use this little bug all the time i would be lost without it LOL . My parents live in Caple and mum bought a gift voucher for me at the scrapbooking shop (if you are ever down south caple is in between Bunbury and Busselton be sure to stop in and say hi to the girls there.. they have some great stuff) and i bought the new Rhonna Farrer scrolls and used these on the bottom of the layout and stamped it in white.

Have a great week enjoy every moment that comes your way

My Bella

This is my beautiful little princess Chanel, who is full of life and love, I am always thankful having 4 boys that we have her she is soft and sensitive and when im feeling down instinctivley gives me a big cuddle and kiss and assures me of her love...

Singleton Beach

Whenever we take all the kids down the beach (apart from our 19 yr old he prefers to hang with his girlfriend at present) the thought runs through my mind why dont we do this more often.. The beach was absolute hevan this evening and i really enjoyed just being with my husband and the kids moments like these are way to few at present I was snapping away as usual admiring all the kids doing there own thing, and sitting back appreciating the tranquil moments they were experiencing with their feet in the wash and their pants getting all wet and hearing them squeal.. i took each moment in knowing it would end. Where I live in singleton we are lucky to have a well kept clean beach our local primary school also have a hand in this with their tree planting days and clean ups. It was little Riley's (who is nearing 10 months) first visit to the beach and he loved being up on Dads shoulders with the wind in his hair he had a smile the whole time, you will definately see some of these shots in a layout I came across a very talented scrapper this evening from teresa collins blog her link is check it out theres a heap of inspiration here. Enjoy the rest of your week guys try and take some time for yourselfs to create .. I know i will be trying in actual fact with 5 kids im always trying to steal time to do something creative and fun

Whats New??

Teresa Collins is going independant . This is going to be fab cant wait to see her new lines will all be released at cha this year ... check out her site for more info ... Hope 2008 started of with a bang for you .. today Relax and enjoy what is ... Remember Dream Big.!!
