boyish vintage...

So many things in the scrappy world are geared towards girly vintage...with my two boys I sometimes find it hard to find pattern papers and embellies to suit...and when I received this gorgeous photo of my two boys from our photo shoot in January by labelle photographics, I knew I wanted a vintage feel.I have used a gorgeous new Scrapware chippie doily frame, and that button is from here

ooo and you know my old faithful music pattern banner from here.
Heather, Pearl, Lydia, Emily and Leanne, if you could email me here with your addies I will get my handmade goodies out to you , thanks for playing along.

life lessons

After the floods here in Brisbane I wanted to share some life lessons with my oldest son Addison, we had many discussions on the impact the floods had on people and especially children, we talked about them losing their toys and possesions, when we made donations I wanted him to be there so he knew exactly what we were doing.I wanted him to learn empathy for others.... A bit drab and dreary to my usual style but I wanted to convey the impact ofthe floods...gorgeous new chippie gates from Scrapware..I roughed it up, distressed and inked the page to within an inch of it's life!
I took a photo of the paper up here in Brisbane and used that on my layout

Till next time...

At two...

I have had this layout in my head since December when Larsen turned 2.
Just a quick layout to remember his milestones!
As you can see I have been playing and playing with my new cloud punches, you will be seeing them alot in the future... I think I have used them on the last 6 layouts that I have created!!!
Sorry about the colours I have photographed and edited this layout 3 times and for some reason it is just not co operating with me!
Till next time...
