a little baby no more..

One more that i started on the last day of the mini retreat and just had to finish off once i got home....it's taken me awhile to post it here.

When i had these photos developed i realised that Mace had all of a sudden has lost that baby look and that he is now a little boy, and quite a trick he is!!
I am sitting here listening to the rain pitter patting on the roof....reminds me of the weekend down at Trinty, us all scrapping our little hearts out..... this weekend might turn out to be another one of those, if only all the other 29 girls were here too......hope we don't get too much rain though.

Have a good weekend everyone,

more scrapathon layouts

The rest of my layouts from our e2c Scrapathon weekend.
This one using Meredith's lovely new scallop punch by EK, and a touch of glimmermisting.

I just wanted to use some of those yummy new rose ribbons.....and with this girls layout i could do just that!! Oh, the fun of using some pink and florals! And these girls are truly inspiring to me.....i have so much fun with them.

Then onto some travel pages... Kali, Croatia..

And then to play with some more florals and prettiness....meeting our AFS daughter, Angi and her family in Nurtingen, Germany.
and more florals, butterfly punches and all things pretty for Paris..

It was really nice to scrap outside of my norm....i love the look of shabby chic, florally, anything olde worlde....and it was nice to do a touch of them.
So that's about all for now,
Thanks for stopping by and leaving any comments,
Have a great day,

a Fab weekend scrapping

Have just had our escape2create Scrapathon at Trinty Haven camp with 30 enthusiastic scrappers and what a great weekend it was!! Scrap, shop, chat, friends, laughter, & loads fun all under the one roof....what a perfect place to be!! ....and i managed to get 8 pages completed, the most i have done at any retreats. I did more than read magazines this time, so i was very pleased!!!

It was just the Bestest weekend! Thanks to you all for your lovely company and inspiration!

Here's a couple of my pages from the weekend:

Birthday pages of two special little boys.

This was my first go at making a special birthday cake in over 10 years, actually i made this very cake for Daniel when he was 5...i had it written in the old Woman's Weekly birthday cake cookbook....now Jacob's name is next to his Dad's.

Dear little Eli was just delighted with Granny's very simple animal cake for his birthday. the joy on his face was just priceless, it almost bought a tear to my eye! I'm having fun making the occassional birthday cake for the grandies....i always loved to do special cakes for my kids.

I had fun making these cakes, seeing their faces and even more fun scrapping these pages.

Old Town Dubrovnik

I just loved Dubrovnik, Croatia....the old town with it's century old walls that you walk around on, and all those red roofed homes & buildings. It's steep narrow streets which were lined with shops, boutiques, eating places, little quaint bars ..... just paradise for a tourist really!

When i use to see pictures of Dubrovnik in tourist brochures....i'd think ....'i want to go there, i want a picture just like that....with all those red roofs'..........and finally I HAVE!!

Can't believe that i have actually been now!!
