Sorry, just a few more ...

Sorry, blogger isn't being nice to me today with uploads so I've had to put these last 2 LO's in a new post.

I treated myself to some relatively new BG stuff from the lovely Heike at recently when she had a sale on BG ... this is the Lemonade range of pp's, stickers and felt embellies.

A double spread ... rare for me I know, I do them occasionally, probably not often enough LOL.

And a birthday page for our little princess ...

Next weekend I'm off to a retreat with my dear friend Michelle (owner of Divas) and a rather large contingent of Divas girls too, down at Wisemans Ferry. I am super excited ... but haven't packed a thing yet LOL, not even organised any page kits ... best get on to that or I'll be throwing my entire stash in the back of the car ...
And to finish on a very happy note ... check out p. 111 of the latest issue of SBM magazine (Vol.11 No.8) ... my girl has had her LO published!!! YAY at long last ... it was accepted some 14 months ago mind you - she did the page when she was almost 3 and she's now turned 5 ... go figure. But hey, it's there on the page and I am one very proud mummy!!!

Layouts to share

Just doing a quick post of recent creations ... some for a comp, or CC, others just because :)
These first 2 are using the Kaiser Offshore range and AC thickers.
And I'm sorry about the pics uploading sideways ... dunno what blogger is doing to them???

This is a fridge magnet photo frame which was one of Rach's challenges for us at last week's Crazy Crop over at Divas.

I made the fish myself - cut them out of blue paper, inked the edges and cut a fin and mounted it on d/s foam tape then put dots of dimensional magic over them for "scales".

This next LO of my DH is based on a sketch Rach provided for the CC as well.

This LO is for the September Sketch Challenge over at Savvy.

Family photos

Our baby turned 5 recently. OMG can you believe it??? Here she is at her "Butterflies & Fairies" party, complete with pricess dress and bling LOL (oh, and the obligatory tomato sauce around her mouth).

The cake is my attempt at a fairy's house, kind of like a toadstool I guess. It's from the WW Kids Cake book. I had to borrow some pudding basins from my lovely neighbour and it was a little on the wobbly side but the birthday girl was happy with it.

And here's a Fathers Day snap I managed with 3 unco-operative males ... FIL, son and DH.

As for scrapping I do have quite a few things to share ... NEXT TIME hehehe ... !!!
