Scrap the boys revisited

About 4 years ago I would regularly submit my scrapbook layouts to the Scrap the Boys blog, well things have changed a little over there since then but they still have great challenges for layouts about boys.  So I was already at my scrap desk doing my card and thought well why not submit a layout to the June challenge which happens to be a colour challenge using red, aqua, yellow and white.

So once again I have used my trusty new iPhone to take and send myself the photo of the layout.

Journaling reads

When Sam was in Year 1 he received an award at the school speech day at the end of the year. We celebrated with a mini party with cake and a small gift.  Here are some of the mini drawings he made with his gift. They have been on the kitchen door since then! Well done buddy. Photos and drawings 2005  Words 2011

When I looked through photos today I found these and I remembered about the roll of drawings that was still on the kitchen door.  So much has happened since then and sometimes I wonder why I keep these things and then I make a layout and understand why.


Summer Card Camp 2011

As I mentioned in my last post I am participating in the Summer Card Camp 2011 and every week we will be given a set of colours to work with and here are this weeks colours…

This one was a little tricky for me as I don’t use these colours very often, however my recent Basic Grey kits helped me out somewhat.  So here it is…and thanks to Camera + for my fun polaroid style photo, even on a grey day in Sydney.

Pre-Class Card

I have signed up for the Summer Card Camp 2011 with Kristina Werner and Jennifer McGuire starting on June 27.  In the meantime we have access to the private blog and have been encouraged to upload a card so we know what to do come class time.  So here is the card I am going to practise with.  I made this card to thank my aunt for making me a bunch of crocheted flowers and butterflies, like the one on the card.

So I can’t wait for the class to start and you can still sign up.


LOAD Layouts

Hello out there, well I have managed to make it through LOAD and have a few layouts to share with you. I will not put them all up because that would be way too many and way too boring, so I have chosen my particular favourites for your viewing pleasure! Now these layouts are done with random photos – there is no particular order. I just chose photos that I liked.  Anyway I hope you enjoy them!

Layout a Day – February 2011

So last May I did a LOAD but didn’t quite complete it due to uni commitments but luckily for me there was one on this month when the boys are back at school but I am not yet back at uni.

So here are my first two layouts, the first one we had to base our page on a photo that inspired us – hence my Grow layout and the second day (today) the prompt was to type your name into ebay and use one of the photos on the first page as your inspiration.

The shoes in the above photo were the Mary Janes I found during my ebay search.  I will endeavour to upload my layouts every day or so.


Last night we went to see the Christmas lights in Davidson.  There were lots and lots of people there as it was a balmy night in Sydney.  This house says it all…

That was last night and then this morning this is what children who have been up till 11pm do…

Only 3 sleeps to go now, so much still to do. 

Merry Christmas!
