new toys....and retro ones!

I had to scrap this - boys discovering new toys at Christmas - nerf guns, scooters and mini quad bike!! I instantly went to my Basic Grey "Hey Boy" paper & embellishment stash. They have a vintage/ retro style to them which i thought suited the colours of these photos. Added some mist & water to create the background and it was all but complete!
and speaking of retro.....look at this cute little baby i purchased last week!!

My very own Remington typewriter....i just had to have her!!
and i noticed there is a change to modern day key-board, the symbols are different....and there is no number ONE!!! She works a treat, and i am sure i will have a many a fun time with her!!lol!!
Hope you are having a treat yourselves this week,

Thanks for popping on by....and please do pop a hello on the comment board!!

Have a nice day,

another Kindy Boy...

Mace is a Kindy boy:
This little fella started kindy this year, and he totally loves it....and he is growing in all aspects - getting more confident, not so shy ANYMORE, isn't it wonderful to see them grow?!!

I grabbed the 24/seven range by Simple Stories for this one..... i just love all the embellishments in this range, everything worked together nicely! I added some mist splats, some stitching, and some random stamped arrows- and some not so random (the stamp fell out of my hand at one stage, i squealled out loud, then i was relieved it didn't land on my photos, so then more stamped arrows was born!!lol)- now can you spot the not so random arrow?? I love this range.....and i love these photos.....they are so Mace, the little character that he is!!

Have a great weekend, and hope you can get some crafty moments!


May - Project Life..

I just realized that i hadn't posted up my May Project Life pages.... and here i was thinking i hadn't scrapped for ages!! LOL...yes, i have been quietly working away and still loveing the easy concept of Project Life!

I had a scrap day with Amanda H at the weekend, (well, after we strolled around the garden, had lunch, a chat and a wine, we eventually got around to scrapping for a bit!).. and i completed week 3 of Mays PL... It was a lovely relaxing day!!
May week 1
yet another birthday, and another splendid birthday cake by Rachel!! She comes up with some beaut ideas and the kids just love them!! She is so clever!!
May week 2
a quieter week with just the normal day to day things, farm jobs- feeding sheep and footy at the weekends!
May week 3 
this was a week with family and lots of boys!! so lots of bikes, ute rides and all things noisy!! But there was also moments to capture a beautiful autumn sunset, coffee with the girls and a Scrap Day with friends!!

May week 4
finally it rained and finally the men were able to get the seeding started. Along with the fire burning in the evenings and some yummy soup, i think it was beginning to feel like winter- even though the days were still nice and sunny!!
So there it is, all of May! Project Life!!

Hope you are finding some time to scrap a little!!
