u love watermelon

Dear Macie moo is getting real attitude @ only two. I love these cute photos of him munching into a piece of watermelon....something about little ones and a slice of watermelon, juice running all over the place....oh,so cute.
Here i have used new Echo Park Playground paper and some of the Pink Paislee Hometown Summer range as well- (the border banner, cloud and journalling spot), plus a strip of Sassfrass the lined piece.

Hope you all having a nice week,


Monday Monday..

I love to have a traditional monday at home....you know, do all those homely chores!! But for me at last it is a day at home.....and so blissful it is! I even managed a huge walk out to the farm boundary, got some fresh air into those lungs....and motivated to finish off a couple layouts from the retreat.....feeling like i have had a great accomplishing day! here's those layouts: Family Portrait

I have used Echo park 'For the Record" papers, thickers and Bella Belvd alphas, Hambly lacey rubon, a couple paint rings and a few splats to finish off.

So Special

This one is using Studio Calico 'State Fair'papers, plus a Basic Grey-yellow, WeR -green spot, MS butterfly punch, Jillibean Soup butterfly. I scrap-lifted this sketch and design from Kandis Smith's page in Scrapbook Trends magazine "Quick and Easy". It was the perfect inspiration i needed on the last day of the retreat!

So good to have a lovely Monday....Hope you are too,

Inspiring weekend- e2c retreat

After many months of planning our escape2create retreat it was finally here, and what a huge, successful, inspiring weekend it was!! So many talented scrappers in one shed, all scrapping away madly with each of their own creativity....i love to see all the different styles and am inspired by all. I wasn't overly creative this weekend, but i did manage to complete a couple layouts of my own, half finish a couple plus do the classes of the very talented scrappers....Fran Tynan, Tatum Woodroofe, and Lou Nelson, plus sit in on the stamping workshop of Michelle Dyson. Here are my pages: Do what you LOVE what you do I just love this photo of Ethan, taken on Christmas day enjoying the sunshine and a new toy.... a simple styled page, and i used my new Kikki K stamps.....but i need to practise, to stamp in a straight line!! Mr Muscle These are the pages i completed during Fran's class:

The Reichstag
Canola Love x3

I loved using the transparency in Fran's class, painting and stamping onto it, as well as stamping onto masking tape....Great pages Fran, loved doing them both!!

Then Tatum's class:

Christmas Morning

This was a fun layout to do also....lots of bits n bobs happening here...painting, stitching, making and adding pinwheels, doileys...cutting a scalloped circle freehand.... and i wasn't too sure about the glittery alphas at first, but with christmas photos as the theme...it suited just perfectly. A beautiful bright layout, i just love it!!

A full fun weekend spent with friends, meeting new people and having many a laugh.......thanks to you all!!

Thanks for popping by,
