Lots to share:)

This first layout was actually my attempt at white space........umm, I don't think that!!! No matter how hard I try I just can't do it, I have to cover every inch of the page even if it is just a bit of paint or Glimmermist:) I have been using lots of white or craft cardstock as my backgrounds lately instead of patterned paper which is a nice change too:) I have also used Such Sweet Tierney Buttons which I just loved straight away. Loads of Prima and I also had a go at a handwritten title...inpired by Lou Nelson:)
"The King Of My Heart"
Now if you notice in this next one, the colours are pretty much exactly the same as in the first layout only it's on craft cardstock instead.....didn't realise it until after I finished this second one, but they look heaps different don't they?? Added more of London's funky buttons and the birdie cage is designed by Nic, how cute is it:) This is all about my shy boy Cooper, I have hidden journalling under the photo too (whoo hoo, second time doing hidden journalling). Cooper is very much like I was as a child, come to think of it I can be shy and quiet around people I don't know now! Tim is a little different and will have a chat with anyone who will listen to him so I do hope Cooper grows a bit more like his daddy and have more confidence than I do! I am hoping Kindy next year will really help him though:)

"Shy Boy"

I am so hanging out to see the new releases from Prima......I better get to using the stash on my wall from the current season to make space for new goodies:) The last one is using Webster's paper....the boys on Easter Sunday at Yeppoon beach collecting shells. This wasn't the photo I had for this layout, I had about 3 but I am really struggling sometimes to create with multiple photos because there is just so much going on with embellishments.....anyway this piccie worked much better:) There is a Leeann Pearce Chippie beach hut, I think it was my last:( Some whimsy clouds too!


A Webster's card with some Prima for my SiL's birthday:)
And another for my friend Mel for her birthday at the start of the's a bit cute, just like her:):)
Now don't forget to leave a comment on my previous post if you want a chance to win my goodies......thankyou so much for your beautiful comments on my work, they mean the world to me and make me so happy:)
Oh yeah, I booked Eclipse today for Saturday, I can't wait and I think I will take Coop to Toy Story this week too....can't wait to watch that either (sad, I know!!!)
Thats all for now:)

***My 100th blog post***

On my 100th post I would like to give away a little RAK:) I have talked about it before and thought now was the appropriate it is nothing new but I would hope someone out there would get some use out of these goodies:)

All you need to do is leave me a little comment and I will put your name into the draw....I will draw it in a few weeks time.
I really do appreciate all of your lovely comments and encouragement so this is my little way of giving something back to the scrapping community.....anyone who knows me knows my stash is way out of control!!!!
Have a wonderful day:)

Sweet Gracie:)

She is such a sweetie this little girl, saw her last night and her cheeks are so adorably chubby, I just had to keep kissing them! I also gave her a little fairy outfit which I bought for her while we were away, I can't wait to take pics of her in it, when I do of course I will share!
I created this one for the new palette at The Color Room.....I just couldn't resist these beautiful, sweet colours and this adorable piccie of Gracie from a few months ago.
I was happy to use up some older Prima flowers's getting closer to CHA again:):):) I also used some old Basic Grey paper which I have been waiting to use for a long feels good to use older product:) Oh and a Jodie Butler flower too!
"As Sweet As Sugar"
I have used some cuties from MLBOW ........cupcake button, strawberry pin and pink ladybug embellie:) I just love all of Steph's stuff so makes me happy!
Sometimes with my layouts you may blink and miss something.... so did you spot the little Basic Grey ice cream woolie??
I was doing a little bit of etsy browsing the other day and didn't realise at the time of downloading this pic but the colours just fit perfectly into this palette! There you go for some inspiration. It is a pretty awesome diaper cake too:)

I also came across this gorgeous little fella/gal (whichever you like). It's a Whoot Whoot Plush and I want one:):) Sometimes I wish I could sew, hand stitching is about as good as it gets for me!
Okay, that's about it for me today, hope you are all having a great weekend:) It's been pretty quiet here, the boys are getting over their sickness.....I just hope it stays away for a while now! Oh yeah, thanks girls for hugs on the last post...mwah, all is good!

A layout for ME.....

I don't do very many layouts for myself of just myself and my thoughts but I really felt it was time. I also don't give away much on this little blog, so here is just a little bit more of me. I have also incorporated some hidden journalling which I don't think I have ever done before either. I am addicted to Glimmermist at the moment and my collection is getting bigger, the colours you can get are amazing, in this one I used the new Cosmos, it's so yummy:) More gorgeous Prima and some Websters...once again perfect for each other.

"I Dreamed Of Pink"

Some closeups:)

I am not sure if you can quite read my journalling, but basically it is my thoughts on having a third child. After having another miscarriage back in March it has made me realise how much I want another child....those plans have been put on hold for a little bit longer due to the type of miscarriage I had but like Tim's says "some things are worth the wait". I am so thankful for my boys everyday and the joy they bring into our lives so if we had to stop at these 2 I would be forever grateful......but if we get the chance to have another we would be over the moon.

I having been trying to figure out how and what to write on here about this, but I just thought it was nessasary to share as this is me, this is what I feel and everything is all good:):)

Anyway, I hope you like the layout, I think it is really pretty!!

I am off now to play some playdoh with my little man:)

Thanks for visiting:)

Time away and sick kiddies....

We went on a road trip up to Townville last Thursday for a wedding. Took Mum and Dad up with us to look after the boys on the Saturday night. We have never been there so it was lovely and somewhere we would love to go back to in Summer:) Unfortunately Cooper came down with a virus a couple of days before we left and then turned into Asthma.....was getting him on the mend and then Kobi got sick with a terrible cough and gradually got worse over the weekend and then yesterday late afternoon when we got home I took him straight up to the hospital. Not on his chest thank god, so he is just on some antibiotics to clear his throat and nose. So anyway's just a few pics from our lovely trip otherwise:)

Us before going to the wedding on our balcony:)

My little poser Cooper:)

We went to the Wildlife Sanctuary just out of was great and that little wombat (Tonka) was so adorable:)

Coop having a pat of the crocodile which was surprisingly softer than the wombat!

I think I am yet to do a post without anything crafty in it so here is the Wedding card I made:) I am off to have some rest now, I can start to feel my throat is a little tingly and a bit of a cough coming on......always the way, it just goes from one of us to the other...aarghhh to Winter!!

Palette #9

These colours are so sweet and I had the perfect photo of Gracie and Kobi from last week....they kept giving each other soft kisses, it is just too adorable to watch:):)

"Kisses for Gracie"

Just a couple of closeups too...

Just another one that has just been published in SC #79

"My Sweet Angel Baby"

Look at Kobi's little foot and hand teeny tiny!

OKay, just a quick one to do my Zumba, I am really really enjoying it, it's fun and funky:):)

Scrappiness to share:):)

Just a quick piccie of the boys this morning at the Marina....we went there for a play date with Baylee (Cooper's little mate) and they ended up running from the playground to down the boardwalk, when we called them back they stopped to check out all the boats for a while. It was very beautiful there in the sun, so nice to get out and about in the warmer weather....for some reason our house is so cold in the mornings, it's making it very hard to get motivated!

I found some baby photos of Kobi which I hadn't scrapped yet and this Prima (+ a little Websters)was just perfect for it. I think he was about 6 months old.....I have so many of the boys pics from when they were wee little babies that I haven't scrapped yet so you might see more of this kind soon:) Awww, isn't he just sooooo adorable!!

"Sweet Baby" I did this one a couple of weeks ago....I found the sweetest little quote about brothers, it reads: "Sometimes being a brother is even better than being a Super Hero"......I thought it was just perfect considering Coops loves his Super Hero's atm:):) I used mostly My Little Shoebox and of course some Whimsy embellies and also a Sass cute:)

"A Special Bond"

I loved doing another real "Boy" layout again, the little trucks and aeroplanes are so cute. This paper is Best Creation...I used up some more Sass Felties and also the fimo Balloon from Leeann which I have had for a little while and didn't want to use it up because it is soooo cute.......don't you hate it when that happens and you don't want to use something because then it seems like it will be gone.....I have to stop thinking like this, maybe that is why my stash is so big:)

"I Heart Your Imagination"

Okay, that is all for now.....yay it's nearly the weekend, we are heading to the Eco Fest on Sunday at the gardens, so that should be fun! They have entertainment and kids jumping castles and face painting.....I am trying to convince Cooper to have his face done for the first time, so we will see, he keeps telling me "I will be a dragon and you can be a Princess Mummy" I might be having mine done!!!!
What is everyone up to this weekend, I hope it is lovely for you:)
xx Bye bye
