Sunday Again

Hi all,

Sorry it's been so long since my last post, I've had a few blogger issues of late! AND, I've been super busy with a billion things (OK, well maybe not a billion) but boy have I been busy :)

Just the one layout to show you today. For the first time ever an ice cream truck came up our street. We have been living here for almost 10 years now and it has never happened so when we heard the music Chris and I jumped into action much to Caitlin's delight!



I had a play with stencilling on the background here which added a nice touch I think.



Also had a play with my leaf punch and cut around the outside for something different!



Hope you all have a great weekend!

Is it Sunday or Monday?

For those who don't know we are lucky enough in Queensland to have a public holiday today and Caitlin and I had a great day just hanging out at home. We are always so busy, it's nice to just "chill" for a bit. I have some more work to show you too; I'm really enjoying scrapping at the moment, I feel like I've hit my stride with pages actually turning out how I intended them! Also, wanted to welcome the new "followers" I have hit 10, who would have thought!!! Thanks so much for signing up each and every one of you, I hope my lil blog gives you some inspiration and something interesting to read :) and thank you all sooo very much for the lovely comments, they are all awesome!!!
