Happy chappy

Skye held a class on Thursday night to raise money for breastcancer and this is the layout I made from the class only mine is a little bit different then the one taught as I had a portrait photo so had to turn it on its side and put the ribbon in a different place. Jess back in 1991 when she was about 8 months(pixie photo). I used bazzil, fancy pants pp, flowers, buttons, brads and other bits and bobs.

challenge #2

Challenge #2 for the xmas hamper over at the challenge chic... a sketch created by Tan a double LO I don't do many doubles at all so that was challenging and journalling I struggle with as well. so glad I had the sketch to work from it made things easier..

I used Kaisercraft Loire valley papers as well as bazzil and LV and KP stamps to make the embellishments..

Embellish it week 2

Create an embellishment to be used to decorate the outside of your gift wrapping, using the colours red, white and green and also using some wire.
It is preferable to have it attached to your gift wrapping, whether that be a gift box or gift bag, or alternatively it can be attached to your layout or card.before I attatched him to the box he is held up with cardstock and transperency and for extra support I stamped him on chipboard and put inbetween the front and back bear..
with added flowersoft to his blanky.. he is so sweet..

Great timing for this challenge as it was mum's birthday on Saturday and I couldn't decide what to get her so I gave her some $$$$ so she could get something she wants.. and to store the $ in I made a gift box and decorated it with popcorn bear holding a bunch of flowers.. made from punchies and stamps, embellished with buttons and bits.

Boy LO's

I started these a few weeks ago and wasn't happy with them so put them out of sight I decided to get them out this morning and finish them off I used shell's last sketch to go off for this, and stuck the embellishments on this morning. I wasn't happy with how this was turning out so stuck a few more bits and pieces on it and some more titles and it's not too bad...
This was Sam on his birthday last year and I've got near the same photo this year with his new trucks again.. just different clothes and bigger trucks... will have to do a LO with it too.

Where is it gone???

The last 7 years that is...... it doesn't seem all that long ago that I pushed a wee little Sammy into the world he was very eager to get here as he arrived 8 weeks early and weighed a mere 1.5kg about 3lb and 42cm in length and HC 31cm he was so tiny...
He is 5hrs old in the humidicrib they(NICU nurses) took the photo before they hooked him up to all the machinery.
Now here he is this morning opening up his birthday presents not so tiny anymore... He got trucks and a front end loader for his birthday, we were going to have chippies in the park and ride his bike down in Tumut but it hasn't stopped raining so we came home after the 2 eldest got there Jab for Meningococcal..
