Birthday moments...

Birthday time again....always special moments to document as the family gathers around for each one that we celebrate. This time it was little Finn's turn, last August....and just love how they all want to help blow the candles out for him...
 i love to cluster things on pages....and here i have used some vellum shapes....and the black-board one i couldn't resist using the chalk from one of our goodie bags (from e2c) to write the number of his birthday on one of the shapes.
and i really wanted to add the yummy thickers i bought....the kal barteski font by AC- Amy Tan. Such a cool font!! Plus some kisses & hugs (xoxo) stamped from the same range.
Thanks for popping on by,

& hope you are having a great week...

Biker boy and a Snake Charmer...

Today i post 2 more of my layouts from the recent massive scrap weekend away.

Biker Boy:
This was another of my quick kits i put together before going away...and once i got it out to do i added some wood veneers, white stamping and a flair button.

This young lad just loves to whiz about on the little 50cc motorbike....and so cute he is!!

Snake Charmer:
Have used the new 'Boys Rule' range, by Crate Paper again....just love the colours and patterns in this suited to all my little subjects!!....and very cute stickers and chipboard too!
This young fella has been asking if i have done his snake picture taken at the Cleve Field days a couple years ago....he was quite chuffed that he held the snake when his big bro wouldn't even come near it!! (I'm with Master way would i touch this critter!!)
That's all for today,

Cya soon,

Scrap Retreat layouts....

I have just had the most amazing long weekend scrapping @ our local Escape2create retreat- the best in the country i hear!!. I managed 9 layouts which included the class pages, plus a mini book and PL page/class. (Sorry Amanda & Meredith, blogger isn't allowing me to do the link thing back to E2C's page!)

It was a fantastic weekend meeting up with friends old and new, we all creating something....and boy there was some amazing creators in the shed. I did the walk around each day and saw loads of clever art, scrapping happening! It was just Wow!!

I scrapped my boys....again!! And i did notice the pages were mostly 'bike' orientated, which was not intentional but funny how it turned out. Riding scooters, learning to go with-out trainer wheels, motor-bikes....bikes galore, along with a birthday and a snake charmer!! I did up some 'kits' the weeks before the retreat, with papers, sketch and embellies all worked out, so i don't suffer from the sit an do nothing block!!
So here is the first couple..

Little Scooter Boy:
This was one of my kits...working with papers from my old stash- lemonowl papers and worked in with some new embellies, a couple flair buttons, a large ampersand chip and other bits n bobs.
This photo was a little while 2013, but he use to love scooting around on this little scooter as fast as he could get it to go!!
you can RIDE:
I couldn't resist some new product with this one, the Crate Paper 'Boys Rule' range, i just had to have to help me along....and the chipboard embellies are so cute...esp.that 2 wheeler bike!!
What a great weekend....and now that i am all unpacked, and settled back into home....i feel ready for another scrap!!

Hope you are having a great day!!

Love Sue xx
