Can you help???

Last year I made some 6x6 pages for the SCKC memory books. Well it is that time of the year again and Julie needs help again to make about 6300 pages to go in these memory books for some very derserving kids!! All the details are here. So if you could pass on the word to all your scrapping friends that would be great and if you could make some pages for her that would be fantastic. The photo that will eventually be put on the layout will be approx 5" x 3.5". Pages need not be intricate, in fact simple is best, with a photo mat and a journal spot. and if you have any bits and pieces in your stash that you no longer want or need you can send them too so the kids buddies can decorate the front covers.There are lots of photos and ideas on her blog too. Have a read of her blog and I can guarantee you you will want to help too.

Thats it for now I am off to create some 6x6 pages.

Have a great day

Catch ya soon :)

Back again...

Thought I would share the other layouts I finished off this week:
This one is based on a sketch by Becky Higgins in creating keepsakes April o8 edition. I had been wanting to scrap these photos for ages and I thought this sketch was perfect.

And this one I just had to do about Jess and the way she eats her chocolate custard!! Not sure if you can read the journalling but it says " If your face doesn't look like this after eating chocolate custard then you're not doing it right!"

Have a great week.

Catch ya soon :)

Busy Busy...

Another busy week!! Madison had a school camp on thursday and friday so went and helped out with that. I think i survived friday on about 4 hours sleep!!! And we are all sick. Madison has a cold, Ben and I have colds and Jess has a cold and conjuntivitis (no idea of the spelling). So not much happening here this weekend except giving out panadol and putting eye drops in. I did manage to get my layout finished for week 2 of the taste of india challenge over at D2U though and am very happy with the end product:-

I have also finished a couple of other layouts recently which i will upload soon.

Hope you all had a great weekend.

Catch ya soon. :)

We're back...

Have had a really busy weekend here. On friday night hubby and I drove down to Mt Gambier for his cousins wedding. Nearly didn't go both kiddies have been sick but my sister and her hubby and my parents were still happy to look after them so we went. Was so hard to leave them!! I think I have only ever been away from them once or twice before but what made it even harder was knowing they were both sick. Even though they were sick they both had a blast so that was good to know. We had a really nice time too. The wedding on saturday was beautiful!! Donna (hubbys cousin) looked stunning!! and the weather was beautiful. Apparently friday it rained all day so it was nice to have the sun shining as the wedding was outside. We drove home on sunday (the weather had again turned bad). It rained most of the way home!! Below is a photo of Donna and her hubby Mathew:-

And now a couple of random photos of my kiddies:

Jess being trendy in my sunnies!! I just love her hair!! Everywhere we go we are always getting comments about the colour of her hair. It is the most stunning dark red. And oh so curly!!

And my big girl Madison. Man this photo makes her look so grown up!! And she is going on her first school camp on Thursday!!

Not much scrapping lately but there is another challenge over at D2U. Week 2 of "the taste of India". You can check out all the details HERE in the forum. Am hoping to get this one done this week.

Hope you are all having a great week.

Catch ya soon :)
