1st of the month reveals

Morning everyone, being the first of the month I have some more shares for you.
Firstly for stuck sketches we had to play around with this sketch

my layout....Larsen really has no fear of the water at the beach he just heads straight in. Isn't that yummy submarine from 3tails so cute and I have used up some older October afternoon pattern paper.

It's also time for a new challenge at scrapawhile.

This month Tarrah has set the challenge of using multible photos on a layout. Addison at three is starting to take an interest in letters and numbers, his life long journey of learning is slowly beginning.

That fun book round is from lilredrocket and that cute apple pin is from mylittlebitofwhimsy and finally that cute little apple charm is from my2angels .

Before I go I just want to Thank everyone who has left me such lovely comments recently I truly appreciate each and every one.

Till next time...

same but different....

As you know Addison is obsessed with diggers, both these layouts were taken on the same day but the concept behind the layouts are totally different.

This first one which I have used with my gorgeous friend taryn as our photo challenge for this month (where we use photos from the same batch and scrap them to see how different they turn out) chronicles Addison's way of still playing on his own, he loves playing with the kids on the street but he also loves his solitude and gets so engrossed in what he is doing he forgets about everyone else.

Both layouts have gorgeous chippies from 3tails and I have used one of their large chipboard diggers to mist over with some yummy chocolate glimmermist.

This second layout which I have used for a fun scrapbook relay over at scrapawhile tells the story of Addison's continued obsession with diggers and dirt.

AHHHH dirt!!!

I hope you pop on over to taryn's blog to check out her take on our challenge too and please come back on Saturday for some more reveals I have to share.

Till next time...

to be three again...

Oh to be three again and have the freedom or THREEDOM to do anything without a care in the world. Another photo of Addison from our Summer at the beach. I finished this layout off last night, I had been wanting to use that gorgeous prima butterfly for a while now and I finally had the chance!

Of course the chippie boat is from 3tails and I just LOVE my new lemon maya mist I think I have used it on my last four layouts., and finally some new October Afternoon fly a Kite....HEAVEN!!!!

Before I go don't forget to head on over to lilredrocket for some awessome new kits and goodies Shell has in store.

life is an adventure

Well for me anyway...hehehe and I guess for my boys all three of them big and small.
This Summer we spent alot of time at the beach, It was Larsen's first time and he was so full of wonder for it, I just got my new camera before taking these awesome shots so was playing around a bit. Those awesome chippie boat and sun journalling spots are from of course 3tails and the pin from mylittlebitofwhimsy and those awesome clouds are from leeann . I have had fun playing with some punches lately some borrowed , some bought(shhh don't tell the big boy) but they were a bargain so thats ok right, you will notice the little birdie and the crab, yum yum.

Till next time

Have you visited the colourroom yet, Its a brand new challenge site based on colour, they have some amazing gals on their design team. Last week for their first challenge they had a girly colour pallete but I still managed to scrap my boys using these colours, woohoo, here is my layout. Addison likes to call Larsen Tuggah, I don''t know how it started but it has stuck...even I have started using it!!

On Saturday I was fortunate to go to Creative block at Print blocks on behalf of Alita for scrapawhile , it was amazing we met some awesome designers and teachers from both the US and Austalia, we got to do classes and make and takes and shop for goodies for the shop from the warehouse, I had an incredible time, I did manage to meet a fav of mine, Carolyn from Maya road, who was pregnant and scrapping about it the same time I was pregnant with Addison and I remember taking note of many of her ideas when I scrapped my pregnancy.

Larsen's first time at the beach and in the ocean was a treat, we were standing in the shallows and he just plonked himself down, fully clothed in the water and began to explore.

I have used a gorgeous chipboard ship from 3tailscraft so love using chipboard raw, I think it adds such a boyish touch to a page and that novel round is from lilredrocketbuttons. BTW if you head on over to lilredrocket you will see a sneak of some lovely yummy new vintage kits Shell is putting together, cant wait to have a play my self.
