All Played Out

A layout of my husband taking a nap with his new birthday present in his hand. This is so cute, you would think he was 4 years old!
The background paper came from Birdsong kit from Sweet Blossoms, the photo mat is from Cathy Joes Dreamy collection at Bouquet of Pixels, the Word Art from Bethanys Word Art , Journal tag from Sue Wood at Bouquet of Pixels, string and fish from Designs by Helly from Bouquet of Pixels and the green trim from Galliscraps at Digital Crea.

Matthew .......

I took this pic of my youngest son on the weekend. I don't have many good photos of either of my boys, but I am determined that is going to change. Will post the list of supplies later.

The Magic Garden

These photos are from the caravan park in Palm Cove, NQ. It is a tree that has grown around two water taps and fascinates everyone who sees it.
I used a free template from Lorie M, papers from Lindsay Jane Designs Seascape Kit, elements from Lindsay Jane Designs Pool Party at Scrapbook Bytes, a leaf brush and the font is Caribbean, and Yay! for me for remembering to write all this down!

My Goldenhaired Girl .....

My latest LO, this is for Ann's March Challenge on the Hybrid Designs site. My youngest daughter, aged 6. I can't remember all the detail, I must start to write them down as I am working.

Beautiful .....

My lovely sister has two gorgeous girls, this is the oldest one, taken at Christmas time last year. I was lucky enough to have them spend Christmas with us, a real treat. Its a digi page, using papers and elements from Lindsay Jane Designs 'Bella kit from Scrapbook Bytes.

My gorgeous grandson .....

He's a fisherman just like his dad and grandad. I started out trying to do some distressed paper, but it got too hard, so I just rounded corners again. I really like the look of the round corners anyway. .... and then I used a brush to put stitches in the buttons. Looks better than empty.

The terror of fire

This is my first try at a folded over corner, I want to try to roll one under next. These are two pics that I got from one of the news programs during the worst of the fires. I hope no one is offended, I deliberately didn't use pics with people in them.

Waiting for Hamish .....

Well, it seems we have another cyclone brewing. As if we haven't had enough rain. Its okay here but if it dumps more in the gulf, there won't be anything left up there. They must be so sick of it.
Another digi, the start of my daughters garden.

Tim's announcement

Has anyone checked out Tim Holtz's 'big surprise'? He has some awesome videos uploaded on his website, some new products, and new techniques. Definitely worth a look.

Another try at digi

This is the darling girl we just lost ... it was difficult to get good photos of her towards the end, and I did want to use a recent one.

What a fantastic start to the week ....
