been a while

I made both these sets of cards from one piece of Cardstock for each set - the ones above I used some Sass Journal stickers for the set and the Xmas ones below were made using some October Afternoon journal die cuts - quick and easy and only took a few minutes to add bits and pieces:)
I know it's been a while since my last post - my mojo has taken back seat - a few personal things have meant my mojo has decided to leave the building also.... I have made the boys invites for their birthday party - morning tea at a local park which also has a bike track :D but as usual I have sent all the invites and forgot to keep one for me lol

Double Dates...

Who's that girls current challenge is to scrap something neurotic/quirky about you...I have done something a little quirky about my family - I called it double dates several family members are either born on or share the same dates in the year for some reason or other and all by coincidence....
So what is something quirky/neurotic about you that you could scrap about?
thanks for popping by,Melxxx

When I was a young girl...

My hair was white blonde - how people pay for that lol This pic although has a shadow is one of a few I have of me when i was little as our pics where taken on slides and when converting the quality was not the best :( but I remember days like this running around on the farm footloose and fancy free...ah those where the days....

Jaydens time to shine :)

I can't believe Jayden will be 4 next month - the time has just flown by and he is turning into a little boy right before my eyes which makes me happy and sad all at the same time - he loves riding his bike at the moment and I can't wait til the weather warms up a little to have more days outside for him and Corey to have fun on their bikes:)
The one below is from his birthday last year and boy has he changed - has lost his baby squishy cheeks but definitely not the cheeky grin lol

I went away with the girls in feb and when I got home the boys had done some scrapping of their own - very sweet and definitely cute as:) who wouldn't want to scrap this.

Have had a lovely weekend we went to Sydney yesterday and I did a bit of retail therapy :D and today we went to the light rail at Albion Park which the boys loved and got a few happy snaps:)
Hope you have had a great weekend,thanks for popping by

Cherished memories

I was asked by Bree to complete a project for the August class at Scrapfreak( the prompt being items and the project being a pocket mini or LO, the focus was you had to tell the story (this was the most important part)....

So being given a prompt of items I went searching as a most things I hoard have
a lot of heartfelt meaning I didn't really know where to start but finally picked toys and cherished things from my childhood...

I used the Dear Lizzy fabric paper , old vintage book paper and BG Basics line for teh whole album adding some sweet vintage, Lil Red Rocket, Maya mist, October afternoon Thrift Shop stickers and a couple of otehr little touches to complete my mini...

I still have some toys and things from my childhood -some are at Mums and the boys place with them including my Cabbage Patch dolls and some are here and they play with them here I will be keeping them to hand onto my grandkids(hopefully)one day also - I think it's nice having things that connect you to your past

I made the tags using dotted swiss and misting them and repeated the tag and page design throught my mini so it all flows :)

I really loved doing this project and mini's are not usually my thing nor is sewing(although I would like to learn more) - I will show some more pages through the month :)

So what things do you remember from your childhood and have you scrapped them or do you still have them?

What's your dream job?

This is the latest challenge over at Who's that girl - we had to scrap about our dream job and well mine would be to roam the world and soak up all it has too offer and let everyone else in on the secrets - I wouldn't just do the five star resorts although they would be nice I would like to get to know the locals, their culture and where they like to hang out :)
