Hello Everyone,
I don't know about anyone else but I have hit the ground running extremely fast this year! 
The year will be over before we know it!!! (Let's hope not).

The brand new challenge at Scrapbookit is up and running. Jo, Monica and Chantal have already wowed us with their gorgeous creations for LOVE month challenge! My post goes live tomorrow and then Liz will be sure to share some gorgeous work with us later in the week. Make sure you pop on over check the stunning creations out, leave some love and enter the challenge to win......but just wait until you have finished here!!!

Here is a sneak peak of my layout using the gorgeous new collection from Echo Park.....

Now, while you are here...I have the final instalment of Santa Photo's!Here is the 2005 Santa Photo......Brayden's very first Santa Photo! Oh....he is soooo cute and boy hasn't he grown up. He turned 7 the other day - whilst this is very exciting - for him - I get very sad to think....where all that time has gone!!!!!
For this layout I have used the beautiful Bo Bunny 'Believe' Collection. It is a really beautiful collection. I have also used Kaisercraft's Wood Flourishes - Stars, Kaisercraft - Alpha Stickers - White, Burgundy Versamark Ink, Antique Burgundy Zig Writer and some organza ribbon.
To celebrate the final instalment of Santa Photo's I am going to run a little giveaway.
To go in the running to win a little RAK from me -  all you need to do is:
  • Become a follower of my blog (either through my blog or via Facebook - Networked Blogs).
  • Share my giveaway on your blog or via Facebook (or both).
  • Leave me a comment here letting me know that you have done the above and what your favourite Santa Photo layout of mine is.

I will run the giveaway until the 12th of March so make sure you get your entry in early.....and let all of your friends know too!!
Until next time,
 
 

A quick post today.....and really late! Sorry!
Life has been busy, busy, busy with not much scrapping......rather disturbing!
Anyway, here is the next instalment of Santa Photos.
It was really funny revisiting this photo and chatting to Brayden about it. He could not believe that he felt like that about Santa......Santa is not scary Mum!!!
Poor Santa was out on a limb here......I guess at least he wasn't screaming Myer down. Still the body language say it all.
Here is the 2006 Santa Photo.....Brayden at 1 and a half years old.....
I have used....
Cardstock - Bazzill Embossed - Cream - I just love the texture!
Patterned Paper - Authentique "Wonder" Collection.
Versa Mark Ink - Burgundy; Zig Writer - Antique Burgundy; Kaisercraft Alpha Stickers - Cream.
These little pressies were sooooo easy to make. A few squares...some hearts and some paper or ribbon to decorate.

Over at Scrapbookit, Jo has launched the new challenge for the month of LOVE. Monica Brady has set this challenge and it is a beauty.....can't wait to share my interpretation with you all. Why not pop over to see what Jo has come up with by clicking here.
Until next time,
 
 

Gee, I am not so good at keeping promises....am I??
I apologise for not posting the next instalment as promised the other day.....going back to work and school just took over :0(
It has been a big week in our household - Jason and I both headed back to work after some great family time together and Brayden started back to school. Grade 2.....who can believe it!! As I left early for work on Brayden's first day I left Jason in charge of the annual 'first day of school' photo in front of the screen door.
Look at what I got....
Well, that is what they greeted me with when I arrived home. You can imagine my face and my reaction!!!!
Then they showed me the other photos.....thank goodness there are some really nice ones!
Here is my little fella on his first day of Grade 2....
Well, as you can imagine this week in the scrapbooking world has been really sad......going back to work really puts a hole in your creative time.....One day someone will work it out that the weekend should be 5 days and the working week 2!!!!!
I am actually heading to the creative room this afternoon to have some 'me time.'
Here is the 2007 Santa Photo layout that I created over the break.
Materials:
Patterned Paper: Raspberry Christmas Collection
Versa Mark Ink - Burgundy; Kaisercraft Mini Alpha Stickers - Cream.
I just loved how I could cut these embellishments out of the 'Raspberry' collection. It makes coordinating papers and embellishments really easy.
Well, I best go and make good use of my creative time....I have projects up to my eyeballs!!!!
Don't forget to pop over to Scrapbookit and enter the challenge....you only have until Valentine's Day (14th February).
