2 Crafty November Challenge

This month the 2craftychipboard blog has a challenge to make a Christmas card using some 2crafty chipboard. As I usually buy some chipboard every time I visit my LSS, I have quite a stash!! So I made this, using a 2crafty chipboard reindeer and coloured it with my copic markers. I ended up putting the sentiment inside the card instead of the front. I love my new Spellbinder I recently purchased, can see it getting a lot of use:

Scrapbook Savvy Kit Challenge

Nothing like leaving it till the last minute, but managed to finish this layout today for this months Kit Challenge at Scrapbook Savvy, which is due by midnight tonight. The challenge was fussy cutting, white space and glimmermist (which is on the dragon fly a combo of Bubblegum and Marshmallow).  I really like this Pink Paislee sweetness paper, eventhough it is not my usual style, and I have lots more to play with :)

The photo of Lily is about 18 months old, she looks so tiny! When she saw it she advised me how cute she was! And she is absolutely right of course!

Inspired Blueprints

This is a layout I did for one of the monthly sketches at Inspired Blueprints. Love the circles in this, such a great sketch and was lots of fun to do:

And still slowly working on my new scrap space, I need to paint the walls & get some shelves up... But I found this the other day -

So cute and it spins around, perfect for all my tools & adhesives!! It was the last red one too, so it was just meant to be for me :)

Scrapping again!

YAY this week I have done 4 layouts, quite a lot for me! Finally over all the party preps and sickness so spent my child free day creating 3 layouts and managed one of the weekly challenges over at Scrapz.

This one is for the sketch challenge at Scrapz:

And also these 3 just because:

From our holiday in Fiji...

Happy 5th Birthday Zane!!

Finally the much anticipated, big Birthday has arrived. Today Zane turned 5 and in his own words was "so excited!!" We had a wonderful day of opening and playing with presents, having a party with all our family, eating party food and lots of cupcakes and Birthday cake!

It is so hard to believe he is 5 already! Where has my little tiny baby gone? That little baby I bought home from hospital who wouldn't sleep the first few nights? Now I have this "big" boy ready to enter the next phase of his life and off to start new adventures on his own at big school next year! These last five years have just flown by full of many fun and entertaining moments as well as tears and tantrums.

It has been a wonderful first 5 years, I look forward to many more adventures with my special boy!
