Layout Sunday

I know it's about time... but I do have some work to show you - a stack actually. First up is a layout I did with some Kaiser scraps. I had a bit of a go at a more simplified style... not sure it's me though! Think it needs some flowers or something???



This one is one of my new favs... I just love this swimsuit on Caitlin and took this snap on a recent trip to Daydream Island.



These shots were also taken on Daydream Island and I loved making the butterflies!!




Last but not least I was having a bit of a play with painted backgrounds and came up with this one. I've seen a heap of pages about mum's trying to get a photo of their kids and thought it was time I gave one a go so here is my take on that....


thanks for taking the time to stop by.

February already

WOW - what a beginning to the year we've all had, I can't believe we are now in Feb ALREADY! OK, so they are a month late.. I know, I know!! but here are my scrap goals for this year...

1. Has to be...Use up my scraps. So... I've done some reorganising and I've sorted all cut 12x12 pieces of paper by colour and whacked them in a couple of folders. I go to these FIRST before my 12x12 stack.

2. Is to make more cards. I was a card maker before I scrapped so it's about time a made a couple :) AND... it will help me to use up my scraps!!

3. Submit MORE. I keep track of all submissions and (drum roll please) last year I ran at a success rate of 5% which I must say I'm pretty happy with BUT, and it's a bit BUT, this year I'm gonna get into double figures.

4. The Organised Scrap space. There is nothing like a new year to give you a new lease on getting organised. So this year is the year for organising and re-organising things in my scrap room to get a space that I'm happy with. With Caitlin getting older too now, I'd love to move things around so she can have a little scrap/craft area near me so we can scrap together.

5. and lucky last, but not least... try something new! New techniques, new colour schemes and more. I do tend to sit comfortably in my style; so it's time to mix things up a bit!
