Lifes Journey

Here  is my take on the November 1st challenge for Once Upon a Sketch. I have been scrapping for 7 years and I am so totally addicted. At first it started out as wanting to preserve my photo's now it is so much more. I love how you can be so creative and my family is my inspiration I want to record and tell the story of their life's journey and hopefuly my daughters will continue the journey onto their children hopefuly "daughters" when they are old enough to scrapbook and hopefuly will be a handed down family tradition to tell a story.

You R so Sassy!

Here is my take on the November 1st challenge for SUYS. My daughter alannah is such a poser just loves having her photo taken, and boy does she act like shes model. For this loayout I used WRM Keeper's paper I have had in my stash for a while, some mist's embellie's and picked up this metallic frames the other day so decided to use them and I course some Prima flowers too.

October Challenge Once upon a Sketch

Scrapped this layout of my son Dylan taken at the park in the school holidays. But isn't ist funny he wasn't interested in the playground but in climbing Tree's , throwing sticks, and playing in the dirt boy we could have done that at home. I used the Rough and Tough range from Fancy Pant's for this one is been sitting in my stash for a while so decided to put it to use.

My little princess Holly

My little princess Holly is becoming quite the poser for the camera , considering she did'nt like the camera 6 months ago. So I'm taken advantage of the situation again loving these prima products at the moment and the new Kaisercraft Range Bonjour .

My Mum and Woody

I am so loving this new Prima range of papers and flower's I just can't get enough of it , I absolutely love the new resin's from Prima there best yet . So I put together this layout of my Mum and Woody.

October Challenge for SUYS My boy Dylan Boomnetting on our trip around Australia earlier this year
boy did it take a bit of coaxing to get him onto the boom net and into the water but once he was in he enjoyed it. But he didn't go back in again not as brave as his 7year old sister Alannah.

Dorothy of OZ

Well as this is my first post and is trial and error thought I would put up this Dress making stand which I scrapped in graphic 45's Magic of Oz. So I made her up to look like Dorothy, painted up some red childrens shoe's sprinkled them with some red glitter and popped toto in a basket she is my new addition to my new scrap room in my new house.
