little farm boys...

Ashley took these photos on his i-phone and sent to me...these boys just love to come out to the farm, and they love to see the chooks....well, that was before the big naughty fox came one afternoon and ate them all!! I did love my big colourful rooster with his lovely big tail feathers!

I have used the Basic Grey 'clippings' range here - papers, journalling cards, alpha stickers & banners, and added some AC thickers, and a Flair for buttons - button, and a SC veneer camera.

Hope you are having a nice day...

I LOVE..... the view out my front window!!! and thankfully our house faces north, so every room has this view!

I should have taken these shots a week ago, as with a few warm days plus a couple windy ones the canola flowers are starting to come to an end but still....a sea of yellow all around us!! I never tire of this sight and it is one advantage of living up here on this hill - to see for miles around us.

I just love it!!

hope you are having a happy day,

this boy LOVES his mum..

When you  get a smooch from this little fella you feel very special because  he gives very tight squeezes and  big kisses but they aren't given out freely....except to his Mum!! He is so gorgeous!

This one came together quickly - which always pleases (& surprises) me!! I have used MME paper for the background, Crate Paper, MME & Echo Park patt. papers, October Afternoon & AC thicker alphas, Studio Calico stamps, AC date stamp, gg & loui badge/button, ticket & journalling card unknown.

Hope you can find some spare time to relax over this busy grand-final weekend!

Have a good one,

Sue xx

Eight today...

This young man turned Eight earlier this year, and i found these photos amongst my mess!! He was right into bird nesting at the time, so his branch & birdnest cake was perfect for him!! The nests were made by combining melted chocolate & changs noodles and then moulding them into a foil lined bowls. Once set remove and add foil covered eggs!! Easy and quite a hit with the kids!!! He loved it!!

These Heidi Swapp 'no limits' papers suited perfectly...good boy papers!! I added stickers from Echo Park, AC thickers and Crate Paper alphas, stamps from Studio Calico & Heidi Swapp, some twine and a button badge.

Hope you are enjoying this sunshine!!


swims like a fish..

I think this is the last one of the boys swimming pages from last summer!! The spurt of warmer weather last weekend inspired me to scrap summery pages....but we have since seen a return of the very wintery conditions. But all is good...

This little boy loves his swim lessons at the Leisure Centre, and each term i can see his confidence & keeness growing more and more...which is good....and he loves it when i tell him he swims like a little fish!!

Products used on this page are: Patt. papers- Studio Calico, Crate Paper; Alphas - Basic Grey, Sassafras, AC thickers; Stamps - Studio Calico; Stickers- Crate Paper, Heidi Swapp; buttons-October Afternoon and some washi tape.

Have a nice day,

Sue xx


Another page completed yesterday. This one was done with minimal papers and a bit of misting and inking and then adding just a few bits n bobs.

Papers used here were from MME 'Bright Side' range and BG 'pb&j' 6x6 paper pad. I love those little pads for just a snippet of paper - and great for cards too! Alphas were AC thickers- i love these ones, i have used them over & over, a mask from Crafters templates, stamps- Heidi Swapp, camera from EP paper.

Hope you having a good day,

Sue xx

Learn to Swim

Now that shearing is all done n dusted, i had time to sit quietly out of this horrid blustery weather and attempt some scrapping!!

I finished this one off
Using some new OA 'Woodland Park' papers & alphas, plus some Elle's studio tags, Studio calico banner and wood veneer arrows (i love arrows lately!!), and did some misting with Mister Huey's white was finally complete!

Onto the next one!

Hope you are having some quiet time to yourself,

a busy Father's Day..

It was a busy time at our house this weekend. Not only did we have Father's day, i was cooking for shearing but Eli also turned 5!! The cousins came and we had a little party lunch at the farm.

I made these very cute cookie monster cup-cakes

...but the hit of the day was the Rocket cake made by Aunty Rachel and the birthday boy - (with his new batman mask on) was very chuffed with his special cake!!
...and of course super Pops with 4 of the six boys going for a little ride on the motor-bike!! It was a busy day and love them all coming to the farm!
Hope you all had a good weekend with family & friends,

Sue xx
