Autumn sun

This paper from Studio Calico -'Take Note' range inspired me to scrap this photo of the sun setting in March. I decided to do layers upon layers as a bottom border using old papers from Studio calico, a bit of stitching, add some paper lace, punch out a few butterflies, and stick a few SC clouds..... i do love a sunset!!

Hope you are finding a nice warm place today??

scrap n chat...

This week i got together with the scrap n chat girls at Cummins, i mainly chatted...while there was alot of that (and some good laughs), there was also some scrapping creativity happening too.... I began this one but once i got home got right in the mood and completed a couple more!!

 These new papers from Simple Stories -'Summer fresh' range have been sitting on my desk for a couple weeks, and  i felt they went delishiously with these photos from our escape2create retreat that was in April. And as i am sooo into banners and flags, they also were added... I have also seen various shapes been used on pages lately ....triangles, hexagons, diamonds i thought i make my own apple and use that as a cut out and a went with out home-grown/ apple theme at the retreat!

Hope you have found some inspirtation for your scrapping lately!

a special Family moment..

As a family we all gather for special moments, ordinary moments or moments just like celebrate a birthday. We all bring along food to share - Mum is so good at pulling together a basket full at very little notice ( i wonder if i will ever have that organisation & talent??!!).

This day we were celebrating Rachel's birthday, and we were all here (little Finn was asleep in the pusher)and what an opportunity to capture this photo of children, grand-children, grandparents- great grandparents together. We are so lucky to have them all around us and loving each others company! It is truelly a special family moment.

I had some fun pulling this one together with some October Afternoon's 9 to 5 range, with a little bit of misting, a Studio calico badge, OA buttons, Lily Bee alpha stickers and AC thicker alphas.

Hope you have had some special family moments of late to remember.

Have a nice day,
