Reminiscing...

I hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend!  We did. :)  We had a quiet day with family and the kids had so much fun with their egg hunt.  It was chocolate for breakfast...as usual for Easter Sunday...and by the end of the day we were all chocolated out!   I'm afraid I don't have any pics downloaded to share...plus we got video footage of most of the day...but it was a great weekend!

Ok...onto some scrappy shares. :)  I can finally reveal my sample for last week's 'Scrap it Blind' challenge over at Scrapz.Biz.

Lately I've been reaching for some of my older photos to scrap.  I love these sweet pics of Madi and my Dad.  Madi was only about 19 months old...still had her dummy then...  I'm really happy to finally get them down on paper.


I've used a mix of Crate Paper and The Girls Paperie on this...love these pretty papers!



This week I've set the Paint a Rainbow (colour combo) challenge.  (Details can be found HERE.)  This is my sample page...


I had so much fun looking back for a baby photo of Ayden to go on this page.  He was the sweetest, cutest little bubba!


He's growing up to be the sweetest, cutest little man!


I've reached for some Crate Paper goodies again for this one (LOVE Crate) and some of the new Studio Calico tags too...along with a few other bits and pieces off my desk.

Hope you've been having a great week!  Thanks so much for dropping by.  :D

Daily Junque and a sneaky peek...

I picked up some new Pink Paislee Daily Junque papers at my LSS the other day and found a little time so scrap this photo of Madi that I've been hanging onto forever.  I know it's a little blurry and the colours aren't quite right but there's something about this pic that I adore...


I used up some bits and pieces I had sitting on my desk and it all came together so easily...love it when that happens!

It was so fun to scrap a page just because. :)

This week I've set the Scrap It Blind challenge over at Scrapz.Biz.  I love seeing the entries come in for this challenge...so interesting to see how differently people interpret the instructions.  (You can find all the details HERE.)  Here's a sneaky peek at my page...

I'll share a full pic next week once everyone's had a chance to get their entries in. ;)

Before I sign off I just wanted to wish you all a lovely Easter!  I hope you all have a wonderful time with your family and friends this weekend. :)  Stay safe!

Easter hats and dummy love...

Yay for school holidays!  It was so nice to get up this morning and not have to rush off on the school run and the boys had a ball doing their own thing today. :)

We finished off the school term with the boys' Easter Hat Parade yesterday. So fun!  At our school the kids make their own hats in class and it's so great to see them all proudly wearing their works of art!  Ayden's class (Yr 3) made paper mache' hats this year and he went for an Indiana Jones kinda look...while Riley's class (yr 1) made theirs out of cardboard and decorated them with all sorts of bits and pieces.

That's a little chick in a basket hanging off the front of Ayden's hat... LOL... and  Riley's very much the minimalist with his creation! :D

Madi has her last day of kindy for the term today and they had a surprise visit from the Easter bunny!  They had an egg hunt and made hot cross buns to bring home too.  She had SO much fun!

The hot cross buns disappeared in a flash and I love the little Easter basket she made...very cute!

Now for a little scrapping.  I've set the Fetch a Sketch challenge over at Scrapz.Biz this week.  (Details can be found HERE.)  This is my sketch...

And here's my sample page...

I came across this adorable pic of Madi the other day and couldn't believe I hadn't scrapped it already.  Doesn't she look so little?  I've used the Crate Paper Neighbourhood range of goodies on this one...

I did a little basket weaving for my journaling pocket for something a little different.  Haven't done that in a looong time!
If you do have a go at the sketch please let me know...I'd love to see your pages!

See you again soon!  I'm off to watch the rest of SYTYCD. ;)

Some scrappy shares...

Ooooh the new Crate Paper goodies are just SO lovely aren't they? I just love all four of their new lines...I really do!

I've used their Toy Box collection for this week's What's Cooking challenge sample over at Scrapz.Biz.  (You can find all the details of the challenge HERE.)

This is Ayden riding his zippy little scooter.  He loves it!!!  (Let me just say though that he usually does wear his helmet...not sure why he wasn't wearing it this day?)

I recently saw some balsa wood used through a die cut machine so thought I'd give it a go.  I picked up some 1.5mm balsa as my local Riot craft store and it went though my Cuttlebug so easily.  I'll be using it again for sure!

I cut some balsa tags for underneath my title and misted them with some Studio Calico mist...


I also cut some stars and misted them too...


I really like how they turned out and it was fun to try out something new. :D

I've also got this page to share.  I was going through some papers the other day and came across a bag of Pink Paislee Cupid scraps.  Instead of tossing them out I threw this layout together.  I really love this photo of Mum and Dad!
   

I used up some other bits and pieces that were scattered on my desk too...


You know...I think this is the first page I've ever done on my parents on their own.  Sure...they've appeared on my pages before but usually they're in photos with the kids.  I really need to take more photos of the two of them together and scrap them some more...

Thanks so much for dropping by! :)
