Birthday Card!

How good am I?  lol  I've made my li'l boy Royce a birthday card for next month when he turns the BIG 3!!!  I can't believe he is nearly 3... it's gone so fast.  He's the cheekiest little monkey and makes me cack myself everyday with his little conversations and habits.  Here is a picture of him eating an apple... we go through a lot of apples.  I think if his not sure what to do next he'll go to the fridge and get an apple.  It's great that his making healthy choices, but apples are $8.00kg at the moment, so it's getting quite an expensive habit... as I'm typing this his walked into the scraproom (cough, cough... I mean study) with, you guessed it... an apple!!!

Anyways, here is my cute li'l boy's card.  He is right into Toy Story, and in particular, Woody. 
So I thought this Mo Manning image was pretty appropriate.  Love Mo's images (I don't think I've used any other stamps since I found them lol.  I love how the card turned out.  Quite simple (I do simple well lol), but effective. 

I even did a little decorating on the inside!  Sorry about the dodgey photo :-b

I'm going to enter this into the challenge at Mad for Markers Challenge Blog as they are doing an Australia Day colours challenge.  With the red, white and blue... the card certaily fits into that.  I'm also going to enter it into Mo's Challenge Blog for this week which is "A trip around the World".  Here you can celebrate different ethnicities or a make a card using your countries flag colours.  Thanks for looking and hope you have a great weekend xoxox

I've finished another layout, woohoo!!! This photo is the reason why I spent $600 on Pixie Photos lol. Hopefully, now I have my superduper new digital slr camera, I won't be needing anymore professional portraits :-) Anyways, just thought I'd show you this layout, as I'm pretty darn happy with it! My two beautiful boys... they really are just amazing!  Thanks for looking xoxox

Get Your Sketch On

Okay, so here is my first page that I've completed using a sketch from Get Your Sketch On.  Here is the sketch...

and here is my layout :-)
These are photos were taken on my mobile phone one day while dropping off my eldest boy at kinder.  My younger son, Royce, absolutely loves kinder and can't wait to get there to paint (I get WAY more paintings from Royce than I do Evan) and play.  He usually gets quite annoyed or sometimes down right angry when it's time to leave!  The page is fairly basic but I'm really happy with how it turned out (maybe my mojo is finally making a comeback lol) and it's definitely a page that would not have been completed nearly as well with out the help of the sketch,  so thank you GYSO!

New Copic Ciao Colours

Just a quick post to let you know there is a competion running over at Copic Oz where you can with the new Copic Ciao colours ( 36 new colour :-0 ).  Pretty good hey!  There are a few things you need to do to be in the running, so head over there to find out how!

Also, just a quick photo of my latest scrapbooking layout... I'm really struggling with anything crafty at the moment, so I thought I would attempt a challenge now on at Scrapboxx.  A layout using your favourite christmas photo and use non traditional colours.   I'm not completely happy with the layout... scrapping shouldn't be this hard!!!!  I really hope I get my mojo back very soon... it's been missing a while.

Finally, my thoughts are with the flood victims of Queensland xoxox  There are many ways you can help... so come on everyone!!!
