scraploot blog

Good evening, i just finished posting my blog update over at scraploot .Each week a member of the DT shows off a technique that they like to use in their scrapbooking, I decided to talk about the colour wheel and in particular complementary colours.
these are my layouts i created for the blog

Good looking Coit is a term of indearment David my husband calls Addison's backside, however Addison can only say "Looking Coit".

Addison is obssessed with keys, he goes around the house trying every hole, crack or button trying to fit the keys in.

Head on over to the scraploot blog to check out the rest of my technique post.

Will be back shortly with some more news

birthday party

Hi all, well we had Addisons 2nd birthday party today, although the weather was pretty terrible it didnt seem to dampen any ones spirits, the day started with David, Chris my brother in law and Addison putting together his playhouse they did a pretty good job.

Addison loved his presents especially his cars he got from uncle steve and mummy and daddy, Roary the racing car was a big hit, we enjoyed a bbq lunch then Addison got to blow out his candles on his car cake which i had made and decorated yesterday, he was so excited he wanted to do it twice, we had a great day thank you to my mum and dad, Sharon (my sisiter) Chris, Hayley and Ryan and Steve David s brother for a lovely day.

photos to share

Just a quick post to share some photos from yesterday and today of Addison. He had his first play date yesterday with a friend from playgroup it was extremely hot so i invited them over for a swim, after playing in the pool they decided too water the garden with the pool water, this went on for almost half an hour. Toddlers are so cute to watch.

These are from today, Physifun has started back and this term its all about games and fun. Addison had a go with the ribbons an a stick, he loves the obstacle course and loves the stories at the end of the session.

I have some layouts to share soon till then enjoy your day

As promised here are a couple of my latest photos.

In my bedroom of a morning a rainbow appears for a short time, Addison is facinated by it, he tries to figure out why the colours are not on his hand when he lifts it up LOL.

My dad came up a couple of weeks ago to put a clothes line up for us of course Addison had to get in on the action.

Tomorrow we are off to playgroup, the group is slowly getting bigger we started with three and there are now 6 of us , its been lovely to meet some mums in my area, till next time
