the PHotos.... i loved these of Tarj..so well.... TARJ...
how CUTE is this little fella... yep if you've seen the piece of pp you will know where the boy originally stands..well i had to move him..oh and colour his wings white coz Tarj is an angel...LOL>.
the height....... and random fish.. so funny and definately HAD to use them...

so i scrapped this...
"Summer Fun"

scrapbooking,jan11 and if you are speaking to Tracey i HATED this most of the way through.. and then i just kept adding and adding stuff.. and now i kind of like it.. i think its because the two layouts that i've done in the last couple of days are so TOTALLY different that my headspace is still catching up...andyho closies...
a Cloudy cluster, some Scrapmatts and some buzz and bloom {thanks Kim} and some The CHip Chop Shop and of course the most awesome button from Lil Red Rocket... see the clouds..all are totally different, one with glitter, one i just coloured in and the other with Micro beads.. funny...
cheeky little photo poppin up out of the top.
the journalling and the title.. more chippy Scrapmatts words.. {and yep BB not sure on the whole spelling thing..oh well..}
and the layers of ROad map punched..and it was missing something on this side so the little red photo turn was Traceys idea..so blame that bit on her.. lol..

my dad.. is the BEST...

so yeah i have been creative.. this one i actually finished on friday but you know work has gotten in the way until to day to post....

"Learn From PaPa"
Learn From Pa Pa one of the challenges last month was to create some layouts with our secret santa pressies... and this is my second layout... the stuff i got was {can you believe it Tracey.. we had to pic numbers out of a hat and i got HER..LOL>>>>} was the bling, the letters and the bulldog clips..

for the letters they were originally white or black designed.. and only 1 of each letter in the pack which created a WHOLE other set of problems..anyho.. upon this dilemma Belinda said why not paint the letters.. Me.. Derrr you idiot... so i coloured them in with sharpie pen.. sprayed some glimmer and then coated with dimensional magic to give them that marble effect... cool hey.
i spy some Lil Red Rocket button and a The Chip Chop shop mushroom button..yummy..and the journalling... this girl has her papa wrapped VERY tightly around her little finger...
oh ohoh... another Lil Red Rocket button.. the cherry one..its so cute... oh and most of these flowers came from the super gorgeous and utterly tallented Sandra Wallace...
a HUGE bow for something different yumm.. you see i'm alittle weird and totally random...

so thats about it from me today.. Mums away with Jess in NSW gettin ready for her to move house and to help while Ange is away ... so that means.. i'm here to scrap guilt free.. for 3 weeks ... lol.. just as long as the house is super clean for when she gets back and i cook tea every night and dad has clean AND ironed clothes for work all is good.. bring on the scrapping... {oh so i just had to do a little online order just to make sure i have enough supplies.. LOL.. i really should use what i have first..but hey.. a sale is a sale...lol...}

so happy days to everyone.....
