Well, the latest issue of scrapbook creations is out (Issue 71) and look what was inside -
I knew I was having a layout published, but had no idea it was going to be a WHOLE PAGE! I did this page as a challenge at The Boxx retreat in Augusta, Western Australia in March this year. We had to use the packaging off some paper packs, a stationary tag and a Tim Holtz Grungeboard number. The photo was taken on the beach at Peregian, New Years Eve 2008 with Ash's best mate Brad. Ash was a bit embarassed when he saw the mag.
Here is the layout -
And finally, this was the first LO I had published in Scrapbooking Memories a few months back. Photo was taken on the same day as above, guess the scrap mags like my hubby - LOL!!!! I used scrummy October Afternoon papers and the journalling block was given to me by my gorgeous scrap buddy Tammy Templeton. She designs chipboard under her Pumpkin Pink label for Stuff to Scrap. Thanks Tam.
Thanks for stopping by, leave me a comment if you get the chance, I love to read them.
Hey dad, Happy 70th birthday. We made a trip up to the coast to celebrate my dad's 70th. My big bro, Len, his son Joel, the kids, my mum and dad and Ash and I all made a trip to the new Pacific Paradise Tavern. We had a fabulous lunch and a wonderful time. Here are just a few photos -
Mum and Dad with all the grandkids
And finally a shot of the kids and I, love this one.
Ash and I were so fortunate to be able to attend this years NRL Grand Final and we spent the weekend in Sydney staying at the Sheraton on the Park. Have to say the service was fantastic and the room beautiful. Unfortunately no Qld teams made it this year, but we figured we would cheer for the Storm, they have so many Queenslanders in their team anyways. So they came home with a win, and we had a fabulous time. Watching from a corporate box is just the best, we had our own waiter and had dinner and all drinks for the day. Hope we get asked again next year.
I scrapped today with my old scrapping buddy Cyn, she hasn't scrapped for so long, she had almost forgotten how. Anyway I did this LO for Ali's Weekly challenge over at the Boxx. We had to scrap a layout using a progression of photos. I also used the monthly sketch challenge from Scrapping Outback for my LO. These are some of my favourites of Blake, we took him to Movieworld for his third birthday. The journalling reads "How cute. We were waiting in line to go on a ride when Blake decided he wanted a big hug with Daffy - July 03". How gorgeous was my little boy, he used to be such a little softie. He is now nine, so it was great to do some old photos. Hmmmmmm I think I am loving yellow at the moment.
How cute is the little blue birdie pin. I found it over at My little bit of whimsy. She has the cutest things in her shop. Thanks to Kathleen Glossop for giving me the link to it.
