Just for fun!!!!

Have had these photos of Sophie and her friend Meg for a while. They were having fun and laughing together one day when Meg had come for a sleep over. Their laughter is so infectious and they play beautifully together. Sometimes you even forget they are here!!!

When I got my new Basic Grey papers in the mail I knew that it would be perfect.Also love the little pattern flower and the rolled flowers (that a special friend taught me how to make)!!!!! We have just got a new Lincraft in town and I can always go and find new things to use on layouts (like the black hat stuff - that's the technical term for it - that I have used in the background). Thanks for dropping by!!!

Scrap Savvy August Sketch Challenge

Popped over to play at Scrapbook Savvy. Haven't been there for a while and felt the need to do a good sketch. This is the sketch for the August Challenge:

and here is what I came up with.

Had fun playing with some mists, crepe paper ribbon and even had a go at making my own embellishment!! Harry was having a ball in the bath with all the bubbles. He would live in the bath if you let him!!! Thanks for popping by!!

Scrap The Boys August Challenge

Have been terribly slack with posting but have still managed to fit in some scrapping time in between everything else that goes on!!! Just loved the challenge over at Scrap the Boys this month!! The colours were so appealing and that's where I have taken my main inspiration from. Here is the photo we were given:

Super cute photo!!! Now here is what I came up with. The picture is of Harry on one of our holidays to Yamba when he was about 18 months old. On this particular day he decided that eating handfuls of sand was a great idea!!!!

Thanks for looking!!!

Scrap the Girls August Challenge

So, between sick kids and work, scrapping has been on the backburner for a little while. Decided to visit Scrap the Girls and have a go at this months challenge. The challenge for AUGUST is a QUOTE challenge... The quote that MUST be used either as the title or in the journalling is:

Children need love, especially when they do not deserve it. ~Harold Hulbert

As soon as I saw this I knew I had the perfect photo for this. Have been waiting for the right moment to scrap and am extremely happy with how it has turned out! It is a picture of Sophie when she was 5. Obviously I had taken one too many photos!! Have a bit of a thing for splashing ink and paint around at the moment and can't seen to stop myself!!! Thanks for looking!

This is a great challenge so pop over this month if you have time!
