....for the soul

Chicken soup for the soul??? Remember when you where little and your Grandma made you chicken soup when you where sick??? Well my Mum used to always give us vegimite soldiers - partly because she knew we had to be sick to eat it (not big vegimite fans back then lol) and because it was her form of "chicken" soup...hope that makes sense so I thought I would capture it as these days I don't mind Vegimite but it is still my go to food when I am not well....

This next LO is for The Year in Review challenge at WIOIN - documenting my weekend of bliss at Kangaroo Valley with the girls, laughs and a girls best friend (well the next closest to bling) Bubbles - Hey they both start with the same letter - lol....

This is my use of mixed alphas and Kraft for teh Kraft it Up challenge this month - Jaydens first day back at swimming - such a cutie patootie :)
Thanks for dropping by

Retreat Layouts

On my weekend away I didn't use thickers, bling or pearls - I think I chanelled my whimsy side and my use the old stash up side and I enjoyed every minute - I don't have a room full of stuff to use but like most scrappers have more than enough and I am glad to say that my patterned paper is a little lighter for it ;)
The one above has the most appropriate quote for me right now and I am really happy with the whole feel of this one:)

This is Jay all over - he loves analysing stuff and trying to work things out he also loves Yo Gabba Gabba - I got the little plex button from Kitty Robot and knew it would find a home :)

My wild Child - every family has one right - I love his spunk even though at times it drives me crazy - he is too darn cute and just the cheekiest chicken little to be able to pull it off !

Thanks for dropping by- more to share later...
