Baby Month Challenges

I created a stamped baby card challenge this month over at Scrapz.Biz as part of Baby Month...you might remember the sneak peek HERE.

This is the card I created as my sample...


It's been a while since I've played with some stamps and I love these super cute elephants!


I also set a challenge to scrap a layout about baby's bath time.  I can't believe I haven't scrapped these photos of Madi before now!


Gosh that little face makes my heart melt!!!  Here are some closeup pics of my page...




It's been fun focusing on baby projects this month!  Next week we'll be back to our usual dailly challenges.

Baby Month Challenges at Scrapz.Biz

Baby month has been a lot of fun so far over at Scrapz.Biz!  It's a great opportunity to get some of those old baby photos down on paper...and to add some baby cards to your stash!

My challenge today is to create a stamped baby card.  You can find all the challenge details HERE if you'd like to join in.  Here's a little peek at my sample card...


I can reveal my sample page for last week's 'Baby's First Easter' challenge now too.  (You can see the challenge details HERE.)


Some close-ups...


 I made the little felt & fabric bunny myself to resemble Madi's bunny in the photo.  :)

You can still enter this challenge and there are lots of other challenges to get you scrapping all those old baby pics HERE.

Thanks so much for dropping by!

A scrappy share...

I just realised I haven't posted this page from my Scrap A Rainbow challenge over at Scrapz.Biz last month...ooops!

This was the colour combo I came up with...


(The inspiration photo was found on Pinterest HERE.)

This was my page sample...


I used the Echo Park This and That Graceful goodies for this one with a little Pink Paislee and My Mind's Eye thrown in too.


I didn't include a lot of journalling on this one but sometimes you just don't need it. :)

Hope you're having a great week!

Happy Easter!!!

Happy Easter everyone! We had a lovely Easter Sunday here.  We got up to find that the Easter Bunny had been and the kids had so much fun with their egg hunt!


They had chocolate for brekkie...as you do on Easter morning. LOL


Then we headed off to my parents' place for the day.  The whole family was there, we had a yummy bbq and relaxed.  The kids had a swim and played with their cousins.  It was a great day!

I hope you had a wonderful day with your family and friends too!  Happy Easter!!!

Easter Saturday

It was another stunning day here on the coast so we decided to head to Surfers Paradise for the day!


 First on the agenda was a trip to the top of Q1.  We've been meaning to take the kids there for ages and even though it was a little pricey the views up top really were spectacular!

These pics were all snapped on my iPhone from the observation deck.   You get amazing 360 degree views up there!
 Looking to the south...
 And another direction...
 The kids loved it!  We all had a look through the big binoculars there too and we could see the sports stadium near where we live.  That was pretty cool.

Afterwards we headed back down and had a walk around the place, stopping for a little play in one of the parks.
Then we decided to have lunch at Pancakes in Paradise.  Wow...these were SO delicious!!!!  We've never eaten there before but I think we'll be back for sure. YUM!!
We wandered around some more (had to walk off those piles of pancakes and  cream!), checked out the mall, the beach and the markets too.  After a couple of hours it was time to head home again...mainly because we had to get ready to head to the football tonight!

The kids have never been to a game before and have been asking to go for ages.  We thought since there was a home game this weekend and its the school holidays then why not?   So off we went to see the Titans v Roosters.  The kids loved it!  It was so fun watching them and hearing them screaming out, chanting and cheering the Titans on!  They got right into the spirit of it all.

 It's actually our wedding anniversary today too.  Not the most romantic way to celebrate but we had fun!  (We'll celebrate properly next weekend perhaps. LOL)
In the end the Roosters beat the Titans 18-12.  A bit disappointing but it was still such a great night!  One I'm sure the kids won't forget in a hurry. :)
No doubt they'll be asking when we're going to the next game very soon!

That's how we spent our Easter Saturday!  I hope you had a great one too!

ps.  A very Happy Easter everyone!!!  Have a beautiful Easter Sunday!
