Scrapping for my niece!

While I was recently in Port Macquarie my sister and niece wanted to scrap! Yah!! My niece had a photo she wanted to do and knew she wanted lots of flowers but no layout in mind and no time.... Hello... I am here with no photos of my own and love flowers!!! 'I would love to do it for you' I said. 'Cool' I think was her response!!

She picked some gorgeous bright orange Prima flowers and I picked out some Prima paper - yummo, along with ribbons and pearls and lots of other gorgeous stuff. I had lots of fun and this is the end result.

Thankfully she was extremely pleased with the end result of my fun!!
Hope you are all having a great weekend.

Little Miss Mae (3) and I went to the beach this morning, it was a perfect start to the day! We then came home to visit with my brother and his kids for the rest of the day. So a perfect start to the weekend... I wonder what we will do tomorrow!!

October Team Swap Card

Well, finally another chance to create something with some new rubber... I have lacked the mojo after holidays, but thanks to our team swap and some inspiration from my good friend Tiffany, I have come up with these...

I love this colour combination of Crumb Cake (formally known as Kraft), Very Vanilla and the new in-colour Blushing Bride. Stamp sets used are Notably Ornate, Curly Cute and a Hostess set called Punch Potpourri. Other things used are 1 1/4" striped ribbon - Pretty in Pink, Basic Pearls, Silver embossing powder, dimensionals, mini glue dots and sticky strip.

Can't wait to see what the other girls have come up with this month.

Have a great weekend xx

SAM Challenge #15

After being on holidays camping in the rain for eight out of nine days.... (the kids still had a great time - luckily!), some scrapbooking was just what I needed! The Stamp-a-Memory Challenge this week is to 'Scraplift' a page found in all the great layouts from their site. (this took quiet a while to find as I was having to much fun looking and remembering all those great layouts!)

This is the layout I chose - its by a guest designer, Janice Klass...

and this is my version of her layout...

These photos were taken at a picnic for my mums birthday. Dad brought along his whip and was trying very patiently to teach us all how to 'Crack that whip'. There was lots of laughs and great memories made that day!
