this kindy boy..

It has been all but 2 weeks since i have posted on here!! Where is time going to?? Just a busy time of the year with work, harvest and kids - grandies that is!!

I have finally scrapped today, this Kindy Boy  , grandson no. 4 has started his journey of education and i think he is finding it difficult to adjust to the full they all do to start with. But i am sure he is loving it, but i miss him from not coming to the farm on those days.

This page is using mostly October Afternoons 'Rocket Age' papers and embellies....all very yummy and just perfect for my boy pages!! I was kick started & inspired by Lynn Ghahary's page in the November issue of Scrapbook trends.

Armfuls of LOVE was a page i completed last week for the colour challenge set by Amanda over at Escape2create , come on over and see what we are up to over there. And please join in!

I used a recent photo that my daughter snapped of me with her 3 little boys,  the baby is just a month or so old, and his big brothers just love him soooo much- don't you love the big boys hand is placed on the baby's head??

Well, i hope you are having a great week where-ever you are....we are having a cool day with a bit of rain today, which is not good for the harvesting at all!! Hope for some sunshine again very soon!

LOVE..milk dribble...

These beautiful papers from Lily Bee 'Memorandum' inspired me to bring this page together, along with some Studio calico alphas, sticker and journal note paper....goes so cutely with this dear photo of little Finn at 1 week old, milk dribble and all. Oh so newborn -ish!!

inspired by  anna-maria & Rahel Mening styled pages.

Hope you are all having a great week,


boy moments...

In between my night shifts i have been having some fun with some papers!
Little boy moments:
The story of these two little tikes sitting up in the pine tree together. How could i not take some photos of them??

I have used some Studio Calico papers, chip clouds, house, template and Mister Huey's sprays, American Crafts pleated flower, Marcy Penner button, Technique Tuesday stamp, plus a few bits of Cosmo cricket paper strips.

His Bean Bag:

Hope you are having a great week,


30 years ago..

30 years ago yesterday i married this man, my friend, the love of my life......and would never in a thousand years think that 30years would come round so quickly!!

We married in the Cummins Lutheran Church with the reception was held at the church hall (like many wedding receptions of that era were) and catered by the ladies church guild. I remember the week before helping mum pluck all the poultry for it....and haven't plucked another chook since!!

It was a warm humid day with a thousand sticky little flies....and by the reception it rained! Actually a bit like yesterday!!

We went on a big adventure to Adelaide for our honeymoon, staying down at Glenelg for 1 week.....we didn't start harvest until December that year....(lucky for that!!) I am not sure a farmer's daughter actually got away with planning a wedding in November to start with!!

Well, 30 times, sad times, mad times, allsorts of times....all that makes 30 years, and yes we are still here!!

...and.....There is no other place i'd rather be...

And now for the the journey into the twilight years, the next 30!!


a day on the Green

A day on the Green - Feb 2011 at Clare was a great weekend away with these guys! We had such a fun time and looking forward to doing it all again next year.

I have been into misting and masking lately and have used Mister Huey's 'Lunch Tray' mist on this one. For the butterflies i have used old chipboard shapes which i have had in my stash for some time!! From this page i drew the Sketch challenge for this month over at escape2create....come on over an have a looksie and join in!!

Thanks for popping on by,
