This is just a little off the page mini album I did while sitting
watching TV over a couple of nights. They ended up being a 
little longer nights watching TV than I planed. The result was
nice though. 

Best Friends

This is my last LO to be entered into the 12 Days of Christmas 
competition over at Frosted designs.
If you have the time to go and have a look they have great LO 
from their designers and I have enjoyed the fun of doing the 12
designs I needed to do. It has been fun and challenging. No 
guessing needed for this one....Yes my boys. We were at a park
at Halls Gap with friends when these photos were taken. I can
remember well the yelling, squeals and laughter as they played 
on everything. Even things much more suitable for 5 year old's. 

My 50th

Ok..... Yes it is my 50th. It wasn't that bad turning 50. Not as
bad as I thought it would be :) These photo's were taken at
my party which was masquerade and as you can see with my
boys Riley, Harley and my Mum Helen. Mum is beautiful as 
ever and my boys chose to wear ties and picked them out. And
they are as handsome as ever (I'm not at all a one eyed Mum)  

We Love You

These three people are my world. They mean everything to me 
 and I love doing LO of them. The love they have for each 
other shows in every photo.

Scrap Queens

I enjoyed doing this layout. Well of course I would I was
doing what I love with the girls.

Let It Snow

                                 I did enjoy doing this page. Both my boys said it was beautiful,                 
                                 and wanted to read the story I placed in the envelope. This was
                                 a LO that felt like it just fell together for me. I love the die snow
                                 flakes and as soon as I looked at the flower colors I know they
                                 were the ones I wanted to use.


                                         It is fun to be able to do pages of females when I
                                         have to boys. On this one I made my own flowers.
                                         For the first time I used washi tape and have now
                                         decided I love it. I have quite a few rolls in my scrap
                                         room now.

My Little Monkey

                                As one can see my youngest son Harley is a boy of many faces.
                                Yes from a young age he was one who showed what he was
                                thinking or feeling. Always my little monkey, but one with a
                                huge heart of gold.

Feed Time

                                This LO was done using all stamping up products. It was a lot
                                of fun inking and misting. I look at these photos and then my
                                son Riley and wonder where my little baby boy has gone. He
                                is just growing too fast.

My Mother

                                My Mother is a beautiful woman and I love her so much. This
                                photo was taken of her when she was a young girl in Holland.
                                I wish there were more photo's of her as we are very limited to

A Mothers Love

                                 This LO is very special to me. It is of my girlfriend and her
                                 daughter. It so much reminds me what Love and Family is all
                                 about. Card stock, Bella flowers, Stamping,  Die cutting and
                                 punching are just a few of the things I did to bring this page
                                 together. I have decided to place this layout in the Design Team
                                 Call for Beyond Grey Challenges. I'm very excited to apply
                                 for this position so keep your fingers crossed for me girls.

Christmas Cards

                                 I love making cards. The ones that I made this year were made
                                from a little bit of everything. Anything Christmas was not safe
                                from me. I placed these in the Ballarat Agricultural show and as
                                you can see I placed 2nd. The angles on the card above were
                                off an old Christmas card from 1965. I received many old cards                
                                from a very dear friend and away I went with them.

Peace Love Joy

                                This LO is of my husband Graeme and my oldest son Riley. I
                                have used patterned papers, cardstock and bottle cap (I love
                                the bottle caps) from Scraptopia who I design for.


                                  I love this photo of my son Harley. He was so happy and
                                  was laughing every time he come passed me. I tried hard to
                                  find a carousel horse that I was happy with. I couldn't. I then
                                  went to the net for clip art and found this one.....It was just
                                  what I wanted. Once printed, cut out and placed with dimension
                                  tabs I was happy.

Cute little Princess

                                         Now come on....... One would have to admit I'm one
                                         cute as princess. LOL. I always have trouble finding
                                         a photo of me that I like. When I find one I never
                                         know how I want to scrap it. I decided to go plain
                                         with this because I thought my picture was speaking
                                         a thousand words. LOL

Harvest 2010

                                     This LO is of my husband at Harvest time. It is always
                                     a great time to get farming photos of the header working.
                                     It is never very hard to choose the colors because it is the
                                     same always..... dry and dusty.

Just Relaxing

                                I was lucky this year at the Ballarat Show to receive equal 1st.
                                My son Riley was very proud to see it was placed first. Not
                                that it has anything to do with the fact that it was off him. :)


                                As you can see from this LO I received 1st place at the Ballarat
                               Show. I was very proud of this LO of my Grandfather. It's a
                               simple and plain LO, but if he was here to see it, he would have
                               loved it. He was a man who liked the simple and plain things in
                               life. I knew this was just right because it so much reflected him.
                               I have just placed this layout in the exciting challenge over at
                               ANOTHER FREAKING SCRAPPY CHALLENGE A friend
                               recommended my layout because they were asking for ones that
                               are a 'generation' design.

Mum and Dads Wedding

                                This was one LO I really did enjoy doing. My Mum has very
                                few photo's of her special day and she loves this LO. Prima
                                flowers, Kaiser paper, lace, cut out stamps some old lace and
                                a key I found in a draw at Mum's finish things off.



Workshop LO .... Harley Christmas 2004

                                      This is the LO I did for my workshop on Saturday night.
                                      The girls had a lot of fun working on this one using lots
                                      of Scraptopia products. (Company I DT for) I love the
                                      handmade bottle cap I used on this layout. The beauty is
                                      you can make them to match in with any design you
                                                                      may be doing.

bug' cloths

                                          I love this LO of my son. I have used card stock
                                          and Kaiser craft papers. Each of the bugs has been
                                          cut out of the papers. The letters are American Thickers.
