Day off tomorrow and I am taking a girlfriend and her wee girl strawberry picking with Corey and I then off for a nice picnic in a park for lunch. Then off to see either Shrek or Toy Story x
Bye for now
But the good thing is that I have a couple of layouts to share with you.
This layout is very special to me. Yes it is me on my wedding day with my gorgeous flower girls and brides maids.. but more important.. this is my Dad who I lost just 12 months after this photo. And it is the last photo we had together as he lived in NZ and me here. It has taken nearly 5 years for me to scrap a photo of my beautiful Dad. I still cannot come to scrapping one of him on his own, but I am over the moon I have scrapped this. And I know my Mum will be very proud.
This next one I did Friday night at Daisys. I see so many layouts using animated prints and I just love them but seem to struggle with them.. so I was determined to try and put one together. Love this photo of Corey when he was just a wee 4. Gee they grow up way too fast.
Nice to be back online and I will go and check out lots of blogs tonight. Cant wait to go and purchase this months Scrapbooking Memories to see my first ever layout published. Thanks SBM!!!! You're the best x

Thanks girls for coming to my house and scrapping all day Saturday. I think we covered 15 hours of scrapping.. well I did by the time I plonked my tired weary body into bed. The Brisbane girls left about 8.30pm after a yummy cook up of Barbies famous Nachos. They were such a hit by all 7 of us. And a special big hug to Tarrah who come all the way from the icicles on ya snozz NSW. She was an absolute darling girl to fly all the way up here to meet me and play all weekend. We finished our day by going to my favorite spot just meters from home for brunch before heading to the airport again.

As you can see I have used my new Cuttlebug which I am really excited about. After Jenny showed me how to put your sandwiches together for either embossing or cutting.
This one I did of my Danielle who I am dearly pining for. I scanned the gorgeous picture of her the other day at work and I was so surprised as to how beautiful the colors come out. She is 4 in this photo and was so full of laughter and life. The background sheet is the Making Memories Addie diecut Scallop, October Afternoon PP, Sassafras cardstock stickers which are gorgeous, K&Co Diecut leaf, Bella Velvet Alphaz and a few other bits.
I love this pic of her. Time has just gone sooo too fast for me. But she is the happiest girl up in Townsville so as much as my heart aches for her, it is smiling inside that she is happy because that is the most important thing to me as a Mum. To know my children are as happy as they can be in their wee lives.
See ya all now. Corey and I are off on our push bikes to Mooloolaba to see the brave sensational Jessica Watson our one and only teenage girl who sailed all around the world on her own make her entrance in to her home town.

I have been really busy the past few weeks with work and learning all that I have to in our Camera House shop. I did not realize just how much there was to learn but I am certainly getting there. I have stepped down from my two DT positions that I had as my time is very precious right at this stage of my life so it is best for me do this... but the good thing is that it has freed me up to scrap whenever I feel that sudden urge to do a page with full inspiration going on.
In this layout I have used the gorgeous Prima Printed paper, a bit of music note paper that I bought from St Vinnies, Basic Grey rubon blingies, MME Lush brads which are so sweet, and a K&Co tag. the background paper i have used is lovely. It is from the new Basic Grey Cappella range.
Thanks for looking x
