My little pockets

After having 3 weeks off work and being on holidays I was busting to get myself back in my happy little space and do some pages.   I was up to date but now 4 weeks behind but I'm fine with that as I have my Project Life Retreat happening this weekend in Nambour on the Sunshine Coast. Im so excited and cant wait to meet a few girls who are driving the distance and flying interstate for it.  I cant wait to meet them.. Sian (who is an awesome PLer) and I are super excited to be finally meeting each other at the airport. Make sure you go and check out Sians delightful pages.
Friendships blossom so much online and when you finally get to meet each other... its a pretty special moment.  I have had this before with my lovely friend Tarrah McLean.. We have a lovely long lasting friendship now which is truly special.

Today Id like to share this page with you.  It has been posted on the Scrap365 website also.
Below I have documented the lovely wedding of Bradley and Anna Morcombe.  This was a very special wedding for the family after the trauma their family has been put through after 8 years of searching for the killer of Bradleys twin brother Daniel Morcombe.  He is finally behind bars.  So this special occasion was just beautiful for this family. Im so proud of these guys.  The weather was not kind to them on this day but how cute was their umbrella???

I decided to use the Teresa Collins Studio Gold cards.. the black and white ones.. this automatically dominated the colour scheme for my page. Sometimes its not how you want it.. but when you want something like my black and white for my black and white wedding photo.. you just have to work with the rest of it.  I have kept to the Black/white but added two pops of colour to liven it up.  Below I have used the gorgeous Heidi Swapp PL card from her Dreamy kit & Heidis letter thickers. I love this kit.. so my colours.

On this page I have added a little journal card which you can pull out to read.  Sometimes you run out of room for journalling so this is a good little fix.  I have done some fun stamping on the card.. and then used my handwriting on the card.  I don’t like my own hand writing but I know how important it is to do from time to time.

My good old Simple Stories… I have lots of Simple Stories in my stash. They would have to be my most favorite sticker sheets put out. I just keep using and using them.

Just remember… no matter how you are creating your photos.. you are documenting your life!! This is the most important part!
Tonight I will be finishing off printed all my photos for the retreat so I am up to date and can just scrap the weekend away. My photo editing skills re quite slow so I dont want to waste time over the weekend and do this.. I want to be able to just scrap scrap and scrap away :-)
Cant wait to share some of my weekend work next week with you all.
Take care and keep smiling.

  1. Love love love your spread, you really inspire me to pick PL back up, who knows I may just do that. Love all the cards, but I think I love the wedding one the most, maybe because the incredible story behind their day.

    I agree about the friends we meet doing this hobby, I have been so blessed to meet so many of our online friends over the past few years in NZ, Australia and even in America. I will treasure those friendships for ever.

    One day we may meet :)

    1. thank you Caroline! such lovely words... and yes.. it has been a very very sad story about our Daniel Morcombe. At least he is finally in jail and serving time.. unfortunately they all get it too easy in there tho. I work with Anna and she is the most fun gorgeous girl.. She has bought lots of love and fun to the Morcombe family. He was taken just 4 km from our home .. very sad
