Two days of Athletics

We have just spent the latter part of the week watching our boys enjoy their athletics day's at school.
Aston's was cancelled for the first two days, due to rain, so it was third time lucky.

Jensen & Myles had their Athletics day together.  They were split up by year groups.
They actually got to use a real discus & shot put, not like the juniors, they get to throw bean bags, I guess it is less dangerous.  I can assure you that even the year 3 & 4 had problems throwing within the lines!  I had to duck at least twice.  lol

Here is a layout to make you think of Summer!
I designed this for an on-line challenge, I didn't win but I love the finished layout.

Backpack & Cards

Here is a pic of the class in a kit I made for Better Scrapbooking.
I used a Dilmah tea box for my template, this made my backpack big enough for card storage.
I've used Fancy Pants papers, die cuts & Kaisercraft brads.

Upsy Daisy Unwritten Layout

Here is another layout I designed for Memories Forever, using the Upsy Daisy Unwritten papers.

Designing with Upsy Daisy

While at CHA we came across an awesome canadian scrapbooking company called Upsy Daisy.

Here are some of the cards & layouts I created for Memories Forever once we returned home.

Scrappin Patch Challenges

At the beginning of the year I took part in The Scrappin Patch Stars in their eyes challenges.  Here is a pic of my Emily Falconbridge style journal.
I really enjoyed this challenge, it made me create something I wouldn't have normally done & I thoroughly enjoyed myself.

I have so much to share

I have ten months worth of creating to share, where do I start?
I guess back to the beginning of the year.  lol

I created these layouts for The Better Scrapbooking DT that I am on.  I was lucky enough to be asked to stay on for another year.  So I have several layouts to show over the next few posts.

Monty Loving Trees

Just had to share some photos of our new cat Monty...well he is not so new now as he is 8mths old.
He is loving our trees at the moment.

This is what he looked like when we first got him.

MIA for too long! But I'm back now.

I need to get this blog up to speed with what has been happening in my life. It has been such a long time since I last blogged.
So, what happened to me after the 18th Jan, well shortly after that I was lucky enough to go to Winter CHA In Anaheim!! It was amazing, I loved everything. I managed to complete 9 fantastic classes. CHA was everything I had expected. I would love to go again.
I'll upload photos of some of the projects I made later.
We went to Disneyland too, can't have a trip to Anaheim without Disneyland! I told my boys I was going to check it out for them, just to make sure it was suitable. lol
