Scrap the Boys - August Challenge

Hi!  Well I haven't been around much...  just generally busy or not feeling creative.  Although I did complete this layout a couple of weeks ago for the August Challenge over at Scrap the Boys. My friend came over for the evening and witnessed a woman possessed lol. I just went absolutely crazy on this layout!
The challenge is to do some 'profiling'... so I went to work putting down some of the things that make my eldest son tick... not a simple thing lol. His brain is going at a million miles an hour ALL THE TIME!!!  When he was little he became completely obsessed with Buzz Lightyear, and then Ben 10.  We worked with a psychologist and occupational therapist, and one goal was to broaden his intetests to help deal with his obsessive behaviour.   It makes me laugh now to think of this!  Now he is interested in MANY things.  He still becomes totally obsessed... he just has more to choose from.  I get tired just thinking about everything that goes on in that little head of his!
So anyway.. here is my layout.   It's kind if messy and crazy... just like my little boy ♡♡♡  I hope you like it and thank you for stopping by :-)

Scrap the Boys: June Challenge

It's been so long since I've been here!  Hi!  I really haven't been scrapping a whole lot lately... either busy or just can't be bothered lol. But I did scrap with a friend a couple of weeks ago.  I thought my layout would suit Scrap the Boys latest challenge... to scrap a BIG photo.  I've had this photo siting around waiting for this challenge lol.  My cute little guy doing a bit of colouring!  His older brother LOVES art, but this guy isn't as 'into it'.  So when I stumbled across him sitting quietly (also something of a rarity for Royce) colouring I had to run for the camera!  I've even added the cute little heart he was colouring to my page :-)

Well that's it from me... it's school holidays here so I better go make the most of it... love having my boys home with me ♡♡♡  If you want to be super quick and have a go at this challenge head here.  Hope you're having a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by xoxo

Scrap the Boys - February Challenge

A super quick post today, as I am not feeling the best.  The February Challenge over at Scrap the Boys was to create a layout featuring someone special.  I have had this layout half finished on my desk since the beginning of the month.  I thought I would get it finished today... help keep my mind busy.  What do you think?
It's certainly not the greatest layout, but a layout I have been wanting to do for quite a while.  I still can't believe this little guy is in Grade 2 this year... and his little brother is now a school boy too!!!  I will miss their kinder and their teachers a lot, they really are two very special ladies :-)

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're having a beautiful day xoxo

Inspired Blueprints - Sketch 118

Good afternoon!   Well it's rather hot here in Geelong. .. so the boys are spending the day chilling inside and I thought I'd take the chance to relax in my creative space :-)
Yesterday when I was cruising around a few blog (I never seem to have a lot of time for this these days) I found this gorgeous sketch over at the Inspired Blueprints blog.
  I love a good multi photo sketch... and this one is definitely a goody!!!  Here is my take on it:
I flipped the sketch vertically to suit my photos... the one below the title had a stray arm I wanted to hide.  Other than that it's pretty spot on.   Although the bottom photo is a little bigger, but I didn't want to chop out any if that super cute pose Royce had going on :-D
Head over here if you would like to check out the sketch and some gorgeous examples from the Inspired Blueprints design team :-)  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a SUPER day!!!

Scrapbook Creations Inspiration Board Challenge: January 2014

Hi!  It's an absolutely beautiful day here.  But I must say, we have kind of wasted it a little.  The boys spent a few hours on the X-box Kinect while I did a little scrapping.  Over at the Scrapbook Creations blog they currently running their January Inspiration Board Challenge.  Here is the board:
I don't think I've ever taken part in a challenge using a mood board... not that I can remember anyway.  I think I always seem to find them a little tricky.  This one seemed quite doable... and I immediately had the photo in my head that I wanted to use...  that has to be a good sign!  So here is my layout inspired by the board:
Black, with a big splash of colour!!!  In the beginning there was not so much colour, but I absolutely LOVE these Echo Park papers, so the splash kind of grew! 

Well that's it from me today.  Short and sweet, as I might get outside in the lovely afternoon sunshine.  Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you are having a gorgeous day xoxox

Scrap the Boys - January Challenge 2014

Good evening!  Well... last night, after a big drive home from our holiday, I thought I would be a bit crazy and try and fit in a bit of scrapping time.  I was tired... but it feels like forever since I even sat down in my space to do a layout.  So while the boys were getting their Xbox 360 fix I had a go at Scrap the Boys January Challenge.  And what do your know... I got it finished!!! 
So I thought I'd quickly share it while the boys are settled down playing... you guessed it... the Xbox.
For this challenge the topic was "something new".  My first thought was of course the new Xbox, but I haven't got photos of that yet, so I thought I would get  page done that's been sitting around waiting for a challenge just like this!  A few years ago my hubby FINALLY upgraded his vehicle.  It so needed to be done, particularly since I still had my little two door Hyundai Excel... so we really did need a decent sized family car (holidays were just a nightmare)  Although, he still misses 'The Ol' Girl' lol
Here is my page:
Nothing too fancy schmancy here.  Some old Sassafrass paper, some gesso used with a Kaisercraft background stamp, and some Jillibean Soup stickers and finally, some pretty badges from Greatest View :-)
If you would like to take a look at the challenge yourself head here.  I hope you like my take on it.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're having a beautiful day xoxox
