Finn is one..

I had a moment to finish this page off yesterday. Finn was one in August and a big day it was for the little fellow!
I have used SC- classic calico for the background, bits of AC -Chap, BG- pb&j, and Crater Paper- story teller papers. Washi tape, Jillibean Soup alphas, SC wood veneers, MME-journalling card, buttons, brad and a pebble dot.

Happy little fellow, with his mate n lifesaver- 'dum dum' .
A very cleverly made 'Hungry caterpillar' cake, which the paper word caught alight ...this caused some extra excitement mid singing  of Happy Birthday!!
Hope you are having a good week and able to catch some memorable moments someway somehow!

more layouts from the mini retreat..

Hi, after a couple days struck down with a tummy's running rife around our area atm..... i am back to post the last of my layouts from our mini retreat.... 
First Easter: This one is a fav of mine....using the lovely new Pink Paislee 'Portforlio' range of embellishments combined with some MME papers and yummy enamel dots, SC papers and wood veneers....and some washi tapes.

i love you boys:  

Smile for Santa:  i realised while i was packing for the retreat that i hadn't yet scrapped last years Christmas photo shoot photos!!(and here is christmas fast approaching us again!!eek...i must get these ones scrapped!!)
These photos of Mace brought back fond memories of that day trying to get 6 little boys to all do the right thing for the camera!!  He pulled alsorts of faces for me, the middle photo he was doing the arghhh arghhh noise as a pirate does, and then at last he gave me the big cheesey smile!! This little boy has me cracking up with his antics!!

You are my sunshine: and this one features Mace again, with his 'superman' cape on, at the farm climbing the front fence! This page was inspired by Karen D and with some help from the table as well....thanks AH.

Now to get on with some more creativeness in my own craft room!! A couple SC kits arrived with some yummy stamps and embellies which i can hardly wait to do something with!!

Hope you are having a great week,

E2C mini retreat

I love Trinity Haven Camp, it is right on the beach near Tumby Bay, and this is where the E2C mini retreat was held again this year. 37 ladies came along with all their scrapping gear, and scrapped we did!! All weekend!!

Once again there was great atmosphere, good company, great food and our local 3 scrap shops come along with their wares so we can scrap, shop, scrap some more, shop some more all weekend!! And if you need a break down to the beach you can head....i love to smell the sea air, feel the sand on my toes - it is just so relaxing for me!!...and the scrapping is a bonus!!

Here is the view from the beach:
and the view from in the shed...busy scrappers everywhere!!
I managed to get 6 layouts done over the weekend, which for me was an acheivement!! The first couple featured Jacob, this one with him wearing his little glasses. He is so cute with them on!

I am loving arrows and paint splats at the moment...the feature on many of my pages!!
and Jacob celebrating his 7th birthday earlier this year.
Well, i hope you have had a good weekend, and i will share the rest of my pages soon.

Thanks for popping on by,

Sue xx
