a favourite photo...

DO you have a favourite photo of your kiddies. This I think is my all time fav photo of my eldest taken when he was about 11 month old. It was at my mum and dad's and he used to love playing with the drain cover when we were there! This also served as my final project for Elle's Studio, so thankful for this opportunity!
Finally cutting into my stash of that October Afternoon cowboy paper!

 OOOO a new Woodgrain button from Greatest View! ( don't forget about the GIVEAWAY happening all this week on the Greatest View blog )

 Ancient Making Memories metal letters!

If you are anything like me I always leave it till the last minute to make my cards for family and friends. I whipped these two up recently each just took me ten minutes - they came together easily  because I used some fun fun birthday buttons from Greatest View. They both use some delish Core'dinations cardstock.

 If you want to win some birthday badges we're featuring  on the Greatest View blog all week as well as a sampler of small chevron bags and a couple of metres of co-ordinated  chevron ribbon, simply leave a comment on this post over at Greatest View  and tell us if YOU make your own birthday cards!

The giveaway will run all week so come back each day for more chances to win! The winner will be announced Monday July 1st.

The other one....

I love looking back through photos of my boys from when they were little and remembering all the sweet things about them at that time. My newest layout today shares my youngests milestones at 2 months. Another layout for Core'dinations and Bella Blvd's team up this week.

 Core'dinations cardstock is perfect for utilizing all those different embossing folders you have in your stash!

 Don't forget there are giveways on both The Core'dinations and Bella Blvd blogs all this week!

I live my life for you....

Recently during my online course with Heidi Swapp we were asked to create a project using a song. I decided to create this project using our song we danced to at our wedding, chosen most brilliantly by my husband. I have used one of Heidi's File folders again, perfect for some hidden journalling.
The front cover.

 Before I go, I want to share a special photo  from the weekend Scrapbook and paper Craft Expo here in Brisbane...what an incredible experience, teaching and promoting Core'dinations cardstock, talking and sharing my experiences to like wise scrappers in the studio and the highlight seeing my layouts hanging in the Scrapbooking Memories Masters gallery- an absolute dream come true!
