One new and a few old........

Here is a layout I completed for the cybercrop at Scrapbook Savvy. The challenge was to use white CS, something to do with measurement, transparency, "dead" or negative chipboard (something you wouldn't normally use) I scrapped my son's fiancee' engagement ring.
I have also been going back through some of my older albums and decided to share a few layouts that you may not have seen before. It's nice to go back and look through older layouts and I think it is something we don't do often enough.
HOpe you enjoy.

Well another Sunday has arrived and I put together this layout this morning.....I really wanted to scrap something as it has been a few days since I felt like I had any inspiration at all. THis is very different for me but was really fun to do.
THis photo is my 3 sons girlfriends and Donald, a 70 yr old mentally retarded man who is our neighbour. He is always talking about the boys "DIRLFWIENDS" and he thought he was pretty special cause they wanted to have their photo taken with him.

The second layout is sketch 56 at Creative Scrappers THis is my DD Kimberley and her husband cutting their WEdding cake which was made by the same lady who had made my WEdding Cake 24 years earlier.

Today I scrapped.......

I wanted to sleep all day, but it just didn't happen. I cooked a little and then did a bit more washing and then decided to get a little creative.
I really liked this weeks sketch over at Pencil Lines and found this photo in my stash of Erin when she was a little smaller. Not sure what she is doing with her hand but it looked funny and my title "Yeh Baby" just seemed to fit.

Had a great weekend and got to go to the Scrapbooking Expo in Brisbane on Saturday with two friends. Had a ball and spent way too much money, but Hey..it was worth it!
Was lucky enough to run into Hetty Hall at one of the displays and also the lovely Jody U from Scraplounge as well. It was a bit overwhelming trying to push your way through the crowd but we survived and can't wait to go back next year. I would have really liked to spend two days, one to shop and one to do a few classes, maybe next time.

June Challenges

Here are my DT examples for June:-

The first one is "Building Blocks" which is for Scrap the Boys and the challenge was to use Red and Black and one other colour and to scrap about your boys and their fav toys!. Matthew loves his blocks and his fav thing at the moment is to build a "Gwarge" for his cars! LOL

The second one is "Imagine" which is for the White with 1 June Challenge. THe challenge was to use White with Red and include brackets. Another one of Matthew taken awhile ago now, but I love the look on his face. I like how this one turned out.....a bit whimsical and it was also finished very quickly. I used some red micro beads stuck onto a smear of pritt glue in a few places for something different.

The third one is sketch 54 at Creative Scrappers. This is my youngest sons' girlfriend, Morgan.

Another busy couple of weeks for me, and I am looking forward to going to Brisbane this Saturday to attend the Papercraft Expo. I have never been before so I am looking forward to meeting some cyber friends. I will be keeping a look out for familiar names and faces. HOpe to see you there! If you want to catch up let me know!
