Jacob's first run...

I finished this one off  just before i went to Adelaide 10 days ago, and have only just got to the computer to post it up. This once came together quickly with the Pink Paislee 'Portfolio' papers and embellishments, a bit of stamping here n there, some washi, button and a badge....along with some typing and it was complete. (My typing skills need some practise, there are a few little spelling errors and lines running into each other....this old machine doesn't quite like the thicker cardstock....but we get the story in the end!!!)

Looking at these photos brings a smile to my face, i love how little minis just run altogether in a pack....and glad i captured J coming out with the ball in his hold!!!

Thanks for calling on by,

the MacDon windrower..

i was inspired here by Allison Waken,  a page i saw awhile back. It was the triangles cut out that caught my eye....and i thought i could work it with these pictures of windrowing the canola last november.

i have used OA 'midway' papers here, along with a SC and Pebbles patterned paper. Tags- OA and Simple Stories, stamp- Kelly Purkey, Flair button, alphas - AC thickers and Echo Park, ink - OA sprinkler and
SC Mister Huey.

Thanks for popping on by.

In my backyard...

i am loving my new bird-houses that my DH  made for me last week... (well, i was the designer, he was the craftsman!!) and they look delightful in amongst my holly hocks and native plants!!
i re-cycled a letter box that i got from the community garage sale a couple weeks ago into a barn type style one, painted and sanded it's roof rustic red. Then with bits n pieces of recycled wood and mini orb we put together another one. Now i am in the thoughts of a third one.....as you have to have groups of 3,5...etc...lol!! 
and on the other side of my back yard, my other joy...is my climbing Pierre de Ronard rose, just loaded with flowers hanging off it's trellis. It will get a battering today with this strong northerly wind....but i got this snap of it all in it's glory last week.
oh, i love my back-yard.... and i can see most of it from my kitchen window!!

Hope you having a nice day.


photo fun..

This will be my last Christmas page for the moment (i promise!)....this one featuring my fun photo shoot of the grandsons!! No overly successful photo shoot i must add, but i have documented it as a moment in time. Six precious little boys!!

I am having fun using the colours red n blues for these Christmas pages ( i made two pages similar to this one - one for each of the families albums). Here i have used SC and Pebbles papaers, SC mask, ink, wood veneers; Elle's studio flag, AC thickers, Sassfrass & Lilly Bee alphas; washi tapes from OA, Smash and Freckled fawn.
ps: i asked DH thoughts about my wood veneer arrows- he said " what those sideways christmas trees" oops....i thought i would get away with it!! Oh well, they are glued on fast now- so no removing them!!

Hope you are having some fun with some new scrapping bits n bobs and finding a new use for them!!

Have a nice day!

at Port Elliot beach...

Last summer we spent 5 days down at Victor Harbour and explored the little seaside towns down along that coast. I loved Port Elliot with it's quaint little boutiques and coffee shops, and a fab fish n chip shop right on the beach! I fell in love with it all totally!! It is ear-marked 'a great spot to return to' in my map book!!

This page came together quickly with the yummy colours of the Heidi Swapp vintage chic' range of papers, added some MME embellies, SC wood veneer,clouds and stamps...and it was all but done.

Hope you are having a great day!

on Christmas day...

I am finding all my christmas photos from last year, how did i miss these?? (oh and excuse the way i photographed this one...all skew-wiff!!) Love the tags from Pink Paislee 'Side Walks' collection, they go nicely with the MME papers, and OA witch-hazel mini dotty paper. I am still loving arrows of any kind-(and was so chuffed to get some of those SoDalicious wood ones in a recent SC kit), ink splats and now the word bubbles too!!

Here's to wishing you a good weekend,

Thanks for popping on by,
