Before I go you may have noticed my blog make over. I am sooooooo excited about it, its exactly what I wanted. ( yellow  yellow and more yellow) Thankyou to the talented Emma Straface for my incredible new look. If you are looking for a fresh  new look for your blog I cannot recemmend her highly enough!

 Just over 6 weeks ago I experienced the most incredible weekend at the Papercraft and Scrapbook Expo here in Brisbane repesenting Scrapbooking Memories magazine as one of the Masters for this year. I was so proud to teach and do two talks each day and was so excited to meet a few of the other Masters as well.
I couldn't wait to collect all my thoughts, photos and memories and using one of Heidi Swapp's memory files was perfect. It was also perfect timing to complete this project during the AMAZING week in The Art Of Observation class over at Big Picture Classes with Heidi Swapp.
I attached my folder to a piece of pattern paper so I can easily slip it into my album.
The Masters who were at the show stand proudly in front of the Masters gallery I think thats my favourite photo.

 The inside, on the left interactive components with lots of photos and on the right all the memorabilla from the weekend. I used a Hambly overlay to hold them all.

My eldest aged 5  has never been one to play dress ups, however recently during a visit to playgroup because he was on school holidays he decided to dress up as Batman and I of course took some photos with my Iphone . I am totally in Love with these papers and embellies from Heidi Swapp.

 Oh I adore that woodgrain chevron button from Greatest View.

 My hidden journalling...

I have been experimenting  with video making -a video of my scrapping process if you are interested in how I create my layouts I would love you to take a look at my first video. I am still learning but I want to say a HUGE thankyou to my friend Leanne for helping me

Both my sons are lucky to have lots of little friends they play with, friends from school, playgroup and kindy. This month over at Once upon a...sketch the theme is friends so I thought our recent visit to Movie World and this fabulous photo of 6 little friends together on a ride was perfect.

My layout is based  on July's sketch which you can find here as well as all the details to play along...

 Hidden journalling under my tab!

Daily Gratitude...

Although my 12 week course with Heidi Swapp over at Big Picture Classes  is over I am yet to share all my projects. This week I want to show my Gratitude Journal. We had to create a 12 month diary to share things we are thankful for everyday. Heidi provided us with the calender and gratitude download. It will be a work in progress here is what aI have done so far!

 Using one of my fav buttons from Greatest View...

 and a chevron kraft baggie also from Greatest View to keep my notes in.

Taken 2 and a half years ago at Carols at the park just days before Christmas day, I love the relaxed nature of us all. This layout was recently shared on the Basic Grey blog ...I have used a mix of collections PB&J and Plumeria!
