She is...Scrap the Girls March

The challenge for Scrap the girls for March is to use a quote on your layout - I used the March Nook kit for this one and just love the way it has turned out.

Think it helps when you have a gorgeous photo like this one, though!!

March Kraft it Up

Here is my layout for the March Kraft it up challenge, which was to use the quote "There is no greater gift than today".  This photo from our summer holiday really sums that up - family together, doing "stuff", just being together.

Are we there yet?

With all the layouts?  Well.  Nope actually!  Here we go:
This was the Horticulture challenge at Scrapz, using the Feb Nook kit - which was a bit purple and pretty, even for me!  Suited these pics of our garden though.


Ahhh, how I love a layout that makes me smile!  Just check out this crazy girl - and the title is how Tom described her at Warrnambool this year, and seems to me to fit her just perfectly - Cute, but demented.  This is using the February Scrapz kit.


I think this is my favourite photo for a while, Alexa was looking in a mirror checking out her lipstick and face painting.  Just love that look of wonderment on her face - "Is that really me?".  This is using the Feb girl kit from Bon's.


Another one using the ScrapzBiz Feb  kit - I think the kit was made for these pics!  Check out the ladybug rub on!


And finally a "Just 'cause" layout, using bits and pieces from everywhere.  Love this photo of Kiara and Tom at the beach.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy 5 Birthday, Alexa!

Alexa had a magnificent time at the combined birthday/tennis breakup BBQ last night.  She wore her new ballet outfit all night and danced her little heart out.  I think some of the older guests had a rather good night too, with the karaoke proving a hit again!

Happy birthday, crazy girl!

And here's some more...

This was such a funny conversation - and great to have it recorded so I don't forget!  Another Scrapz Biz Uni challenge.

And another - must have had these colours on my desk for a while, they seem to be appearing quite regularly!  Love this series of pics, I took them before one of Alexa's orientation days for prep last year.



He he he, love photos that make me chuckle when I look at them!  Perfect for the music challenge at Scrapz Biz Uni.  Rock on, girls!



And finally for today - wasn't going to show this as layouts of myself are never much fun, but this is one of my new favourites with the colours (yellow??? what is going on with that at the moment??!!) so here it is.

And yes, there is still more to come so stay tuned.

Got a big weekend planned with Alexa's 5th birthday - cupcakes to deliver to school today, shopping tomorrow morning, BBQ party tomorrow night, then her actual birthday Sunday.

So much to show you...

I guess that's what you get when you don't blog for a while....and while I am at it - waving "hello" to all my new readers out there - you know who you are!

So I have a bit to catch up on, but I will do it in bits so you are not completely overwhelmed (or bored!!).

Did I show you this one already?  Oh well, I do like it so if I did you can look again!  For the ScrapzBiz University to show off a photo that has been "actioned".


This one was a scrapping whispers where someone starts a layout then sends it to the next person, then that person sends their layout on and so on...this was my take on it.  So funny!


This was using the January kit from Scrapz Biz, and an older photo.  I seem to not have too many camping photos, can't think why not??!!??  The title says it all - "What were we thinking?".


Just look at that little bubba!  Another challenge for ScrapzBiz Uni - to go back to when your children were born.  Not too many options for photos for me, so this was it.

I think that's enough for now - more to come though as I was on a Stampin Up retreat over the weekend so there is some more layouts to show.
