Holiday Happenings....

Awwww, sooo cute, my big girl and little girl hamming it up for their mumma today :) Amy came xmas shopping with us yesterday and the lady at Kmart was handing out these lil xmas hats for free woohooo she loved it (ever so large for her lil head lol) ... so here she is today with big sister Rachael having a sweet pre-christmas moment together xoxo Love you girls :)

So I have finally finished a double layout last night...started on this one a few days ago, but got slightly waylaid due to ill health in my family...fortunately everyone is on the mend now and back to scrapping and enjoying some quiet Pre-Christmas days.

I was doing some cyber surfing the other day and got to browsing through the "About Me Pages" of some of my fave sellers on ebay to see what they are all up to etc and stumbled across this fabulously bright layout by a very talented scrapper...craftyemg aka Eileen, I have watched this lady create some gorgeous paper pieced layouts over the years and just had to recreate this one...with a slight twist on the piecings pics are of the kids enjoying a fabo day recently at the Redcliffe Lagoon down on the beautiful foreshore...they had such a fantastic time, loads of smiles, so these piccies suited the title of this layout to a T...I've used MyScrapchick's very cool paper piecings from the Beach Bears Mini Collection and pinched the title and layout of the photos from big thanks to Eileen for sharing your wonderful talent and allowing folk to recreate your gorgeous works for their own use :) and big thanks to Kristi & Crew from Myscrapchick for sharing your awesome patterns!!!

Sooooo, I have been on a new mission to use some of these Basic Grey June Bug Collection I've gotta say, they're not exactly favourites of mine by any means, but I am interested to see just how many ways I can use them.... just because I can lol... weird I know, yes, but hey, that's just me...I love a challenge every now and then :)

So after going for a morning stroll through Arnolds' Scrapbooking Sale this morning (awesome specials I might add) yay... I found some gorgeous Kaiser Red flowers to play guys who know me well know I just hate flat pages and flat they got the "oompf" treatment and voila...this is the page I've come up gorgeous daughter Ellen & her Prep Teacher ...Mrs Gilliver from the Fancy Dress Ball in August this year

So I have used an SVG & SCAL to create the mega cool background page, Basic Grey June Bug Papers I've used are Vintage Plaid and Aggie (both of them I've used the reverse sides) Kaiser Flowers Red, Kaiser Flower Rhinestones, Kaiser Rhinestone Flourish (halved), Kaiser Journal Spots from the Q1 Collection, Font is Whoa DNA and Ticket is from D-Lish and Pearls and Lace from my stash.
