Another crop and a few more pages......

It's been a while since I had two Cyber crops in the same weekend but it happened again. I had very little time to make an effort for either as my weekend turned out to be rather busy. But I did manage to get three layouts done on Saturday night at a Stampin' Up, Consultants Crop. Over at Scrap of Difference, Jo gave us a theme of a different kind with a video link: To a Child, Love is Spelled T-I-M-E. The layout above was for the colour challenge that used the release this week from the Color room. I used their sketch as a base for my layout as it worked well with what I had pulled out to play with.
Next I did the inspiration challenge that was a direct link to the movie for inspiration. I used a Stuck sketches sketch from here and I just rotated it and varied the position of the photos.
Over at Home and Scrapped, Joy challenged us to scrap lift a layout from her own gallery and use the theme of love in the title or journaling. These photos are from our trip to AQWA where the…

Woo.... hoo.... I finally made it to a crop night.

I was so excited to finally get to a crop run by someone other than myself. I'm going on a retreat in a couple of weekends and was invited to a crop to meet some of the ladies. It was NOR about 35 minute drive away at the Craft Stand, a lovely shop run by Paula. The ladies were all very welcoming and as it turned out I actually knew two of the ladies from online forums from years ago.... so they got a surprise to meet me too. I took some of Heather's sketches with me from Scrappy sketches:
This is the Mid-week sketch 4-12 with another photo from Paris of St. Michael's statue at La Place de St. Michel. This is a great sketch to use up those little strips of paper you have lots of lying in your stash.
The next is Mid-week sketch 5-12 with the boys dressed ready for their first day of school. I altered it slightly - as one does with sketches..... and I still have not learnt how to do inchies very well.
This is the Mid-week 6-12 from last week and was our breakfast on our last d…

Flower sale coming soon.......

The lovely Heather from Home and Scrapped has this awesome ability to make lovely handmade flowers, many of which appear on my layouts. Why should I bother finding time to make them myself when she has it down to a fine art and I just can't be bothered....

This Friday the 10th of February she is having a super sale of her flower packs and will continue with it every second Friday of the month. Of course you don't just have to buy them on the Friday, you can visit her blog and click on the flower shop tab at any time to see what she has on offer. All the instructions are there for how to place an order.

Happy Craftin'

A week of fun and new things.....

Well, it was back to school for the boys here in W.A. this week and so Monday I was at the school buying uniforms and Tuesday I was doing all the iron on naming and taking up pants and shirts etc. Mint green shirts are not the best idea for boys and already a couple of them have texta and paint marks on them.... SIGH!
They did look smarter than I thought they would in them though and they had a good few days settling into school. Ethan and Mitchell are together in class and have a male teacher and Keelan on his own with two female teachers, one does a 9 day fortnight and the other a 1 day. They have made some friends in class already and seem to be very happy at this stage. No homework for the week was pretty good too.
Last Sunday arvo we went up to Trigg beach for a get-together with the Perth Orientation Services group who help people settle into the state. I met some faces that I had met before and a couple of new ones so that was nice. The boys spent most of the time at the beach th…
