Last day of April

so last two pages for the month!

was hoping for more today...but the 3 hours we spent walking to and from Chaddy and all around the place took away from scrapping time LOL.

So can only share one...will show the other TOMORROW!! I have lots of NEWS tomorrow!

Here's my take on the STUCK! sketch for April 15
I DON'T do PORTRAIT pics!!! so this was a stretch for me! loved using bits and pieces from WIOIN kit and some stuff from OLD FAVOURITES VINTAGE SUPPLIES....plus some TWINE and BRADS from SCRAPBOOKING FROM SCRATCH

ok well off to watch the MIGHTY TIGERS win!!! they better!

Easter 2012

The annual Cumberland River Easter camping trip was on again this Easter weekend...great time was had by all...weather wasn't great, but wasn't bad either.

It was hard this time...Beatrix couldn't be left to her own devices and my pelvic instability was bad!
Here Beatrix is HELPING Mark fix one of the camp stoves.

Kids had a ball. Whilst there Isobel decided to try riding with no training wheels.
So she went from this

to this
in TWO minutes...that's it!!! and hasn't looked back! what a STAR!!!

I did scrap 3 LOs...

here's a sneak of two...
just realised I missed 3 extra criteria for this one...better go and fix it up HAHA
both of these are SAMPLES for NEWS i have on 1st May.

and then this one for PENCILLINES sketch 231 for April
right...well I have a shocking cold...so going to lie down! hope you are all enjoying the long long weekend.

great weekend

first nath and I had 24 hours to ourselves...no kids! they went to nath's parents!

so we didn't do much...enjoyed the peace and quiet...what did we do before kids?
i started 4 pages...and finished 3 today.

STUCK! sketches 1st April
think this is my new fav LO!

then the APRIL puzzle sketch over at Scrapbooking from Scratch
this was hard!
these are the things you MUST use....

1 x circle
1 x square
1 x rectangle
1 x strip
1 x heart
1 x star

you may add 3 other things to your page of your choice - but ONLY 3....and you know I LOVE to just add a whole lot of crap! haha

and lastly KIU for April which was a numbers ch.
1 piece of Kraft cardstock
2 photos smaller than 6x4
3 different Alphas
4 different patterned papers
(yes you can use the reverse side of one sheet as long as the pattern is different)
5 different embellishments

again VERY VERY hard for me....4 PP...come on..I'm lucky to use ONE on a LO...but 4!!!

ok work tomorrow....but I do love it! and now it's school holidays so YAY no early mornings, no making lunches, no swimming etc etc etc...so more scrapping time! haha

right off to eat some banana cake!

First for april

yep haven't scrapped at all this month YET! until today!

so first up
my 123 Challenge for April - criteria was LIME GREEN, fabric and the word REALLY.

and then I was doing the Scrapbooking from Scratch Puzzle Ch for April when I realised that I added TOO MANY objects...so unlike me to not read the criteria! so luckily I was able to adjust it to fit with Once Upon A Sketch April Ch.
can you tell what colour is my FAVOURITE to scrap with!
