Finally we have moved into our new home and loving it... its such a nice feeling to be in our own home. We have a never ending list of things that need to be done or want to be done... but right now we are also just enjoying the moment.

Onto Scrappiness lol.... when we received the the Teresa Collins Friendship collection I just had to work with it. I loved working on this layout... as for once this layout was really a layout for me.... not for anyone elses album but mine... The photo in this layout is of myself and my friend H. We have been friends since Kindy, when I walked into a pole. We have been friends for 23 years now, she is someone who I can always count on, and for that I am forever grateful.

I do like to work with Kaisercraft papers as I find they have a great variety in their papers... their collections really have something for a range of scrapping styles.... this collection was just perfect for scrapping some photos of my boys. For Fathers Day last year we bought M a set of Dog tags and he liked them so much, he also wanted Blake to have a set. ... which I thought was a really cute idea... my two boys with matching dog tags... so Father and Son.

Thanks for stopping by.....

Update and some layouts

Firstly... our new home is coming along nicely now and we will be moving in over the weekend and its all starting to get a little bit exciting.
We spent yesterday afternoon out at the house putting up beds, mowing the lawn (in between the rain) and cleaning. My little man and I will be heading out there again soon today to do a little bit more.

On to some scrappiness! Lol... So during this week I've finished off my class samples for March and I'm really happy this month with how they have come up. I had some great product to work with called Lucy's Bird from Imaginisce... which was o so cute. I also got to use one of the Kaiser Q3 ranges to complete a new 3 layout in 2 hours class which will become a regular class for me. And the last one was a super cute My Little Shoebox range which I used with some pics of the new house. Tonight I start teaching SDU for beginners which is a 6 week course.
So if your in the Sydney are want to come to some classes.... check out Scraploot.

So here are a couple of classes that I taught over at Scraploot in November. ( I know, I know... just a little late lol... but better late than never)

A double layout using My Little Shoebox range which was perfect for these photos of my nieces 1st Birthday. For someone who doesn't usually do double pages I think I did alright.

This one is using Fancy Pants Little Sprout range, and features our little man.... one of my favourite layouts.
So if you popped by for a visit... don't forget to say hi!

New Year, New Look, New House!

What a year it has been already! I've been a little busy over the past two months since my last official post, because so much has been happening. The last time I blogged I was all organised and ready to begin Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas, and sadly I didn't complete a single layout for it. Early December we signed contracts for a house and with the whirlwind of getting all the documents organised, the busyness of Christmas and New Year and amongst it all the packing to get done time really got a way from me.
We finally got the keys to our new home last Wednesday and have been kept busy with the move and the painting and a decision yesterday to completely sand and re-polish the floor boards throughout the house. All I can say is thank goodness for parents, especially Dad's! I am truly grateful for all the hardwork my man, my dad and my father in law have put in to fixing up the house. We have had so much help in the move from friends and family from packing, to cleaning, to physically moving our things. I'm not sure even how to show them how much there hardwork is appreciated.
Hopefully we will finally get to stay in the house and start all the joy of unpacking come the weekend.
On the scrapping front... I am so missing it!!!! I haven't scrapped for what feels like an eternity... but I have good excuse to do so... with Class Layout deadlines looming... I will be forced to scrap... O no LOL!
And a shout out to Sheree for my blog overhaul too... you can overtake it any time hun... thanks for the New Look, its very me!
Once we settle in I will hopefully get back in to scrapping and share some layouts with you guys.
