This month at ScrapBoutique

Well, yes I am the worst blogger in the world!!! Things have been super busy at work with reports and the rest. But I won't bore you with the details. Anyway, got to go to a fab retreat at Darlington Park with the gals from Scrapboutique earlier this month and I had so much fun!!!!!! Can't wait to do it all again next year!!!! Got a couple of their monthly challenges done while I was there. The first one was to use up some of your old stash of chipboard. Did a layout of Harry when he was about 6 months old. Just love his smile in these pics!!

The other one I managed to finish was Amanda's monthly challenge to scrap a first. I found this photo of Sophie cuddling Harry just hours after he was born. Used some of the great new stuff I bought at the retreat. This one was so much fun to do and just love the way it turned out.

Thanks for dropping by and for all the great comments you leave. It makes my day!!!!

Scrap the Boys

This month over at Scrap the Boys, the challenge is to:

We have recently had the AFL & NRL grand finals, the Rugby World Cup, the US Open etc so this month we want a layout of your boys or men showing their colours.
Please note that it does not have to be limited to footy or rugby, it can also include soccer, Touch Footy, Cricket, Tennis and sport that your child or hubby loves but you MUST make sure you have a photo of them in their colours!

Now, I must admit a slight hysteria when I got this challenge as I wasn't sure I had any photos!!!! After sifting through my old stash of pics (you know, the really old ones that you used to take with a film!!!!) I found this one of Troy in his first year of playing Rugby Union in Bourke. After playing league for so long he really enjoyed the change and is still playing every now and then (even though he is an old fella)!!

Make sure you come over and have a look at the great design team examples this month. There is some super inspiration. And who knows, you may even get to scrap a great old memory like I did!!

November at Scrap Jacked

Well this month is my first on the design team for Scrap Jacked. Love this layout of Harry in one of Troy's hats. Harry calls it his mowing hat. Not quite sure why but he looks so cute in the pics that I couldn't resist scrapping them.

Pop over and have a look at the fabulous pages from the rest of the design team. Oh, and the prizes this month are super as well. The most voted for layout gets a voucher to Scrap Friends and the second most voted for layout gets a voucher at Lime Tree Creations. Hope to see you there!!
