Friday Frenzy

Every second Friday my friend and I go scrapbooking at SFTH. We usually spend the night chatting, laughing, having a great time and most often than no do very little creating lol. We are off out again tonight so I thought I best be updating with the two layouts I managed to complete last fortnight :)
I am really really happy with both!
First layout is my beautiful eldest dd with my dh's Arab, Amarno. He was feeling very sorry for himself as only a month before hand he had sliced his hoof from the bulb to the front, very lucky he didn't bleed to death! He is on the mend now and will be back in work real soon, the two of them really gel, thinks its cos dd is so calm and quiet lol. Second layout is of my gorgeous youngest dd with Rex Bear from kindy. They get to bring Rex Bear home for a few days then Mum gets to write a short story on what adventures they got up to. She loved Rex so much we had to get one similar so she could have one of her very own :)

On the third week every month Let's Scrap do a card sketch, I don't usually make many cards but always up for a challenge lol! Was a quick card as I had left it to the last minute, something I seem to be doing alot of these days. Below is my take on this months card sketch but as you can see I had to flip the sketch as I wanted the cameo to be facing in, somewhere sometime ago I remember doing a layout class and the instructor always suggested that photos etc look into the middle of the page, hmm makes sense!

Bazzill cardstock, Kaiser playlist, Cameo, lace, mini roses, organza ribbon, rubon and handmade stick pin!
My fav thing at the moment is machine stitching, everyone seems to be doing it, such fun and adds a cool touch :)

Thanks for stopping by, hope you've had a chance to get creative!

Time flies....

so true is this... and then you realise the importance of each and every second that you live, you can never get them back! Below is a layout I did sometime ago of my cheeky little monkey who is now four! Wow just doesn't seem that long ago I was holding a tiny baby in my arms, hard to believe she is in kindy and will be full time school in just a few months :( The photos were taken in a park way back in January.

Double Pager

As usual I seem to be neglecting my blog! Been busy lately, sick children still but now the weather has changed and is so much warmer, the flowers are blooming and things are looking wonderful I hope to be able to put more effect into spending time scrapping and crafting, including updating my blog :)

I did mange to finish a double layout, I don't normally do a two page spread but I really loved this sketch from Let's Scrap so thought i would give it a go.

For this sketch I used a selection of photos of Alyssa, my youngest dd riding on her Shetland pony. She adores Shawnee and loves to ride leadline whenever she can convince someone to lead her. On this day my my niece rode for the very first time my mare, her very good friend Gemma who was riding my eldest dd Welsh pony offered to take Alyssa for a ride, throughout the entire exercise all you heard was 'faster Gemma, make her trot' lol

Kaiser - cafe culture, Paper Pizazz, Graphic 45, Prima blossoms, Kaiser pearls. DMC thread, MS punch & cricut. TFL!

Have a wonderful scrappy day! Hope you find time for a little creativeness :)
