March has almost come to a close...

I don't know where this year is going but it is definitely running away very fast - March is almost over and giving way to April... I am finding that the time is just going too fast and I suppose this is why I am finally flitting between layouts and not actually finishing any at the moment and that is rather annoying but I am dealing with it by just going with the flow...I have started four layouts and normally finish each single one before starting the next but these need just that little extra something, so I shall wait till I find what I need to complete them...

On that note though I have finished five layouts over the last few weeks and here they are;

A large photo on a page which I wanted to take centre stage and not be overloaded with distracting embellishments etc. So just a few little items on the page and the photo not straight to add just a little more interest.

This photo was taken a month later...I was playing around with my glimmer mist and some chipboard mesh and I love the look! Journalling will come a little later - decided to soften this page with lace, pearls and ribbon underneath. Stayed with two colours which just seemed to work so well for this photo.

I had so much fun with this page, one large photo and five smaller ones - arranging these was difficult to start with as I didn't know what to do but then just started and they fell into place. Our daughters show and tell was her baby sister who was just 15 days old...Daddy was there too as he had to drive mummy to and from school.

Many people just love celebrities from hollywood well we are just a little different - I try to teach our girls to look up to people who are down to earth and happy with their lives. These guys here being just that sort of people. This page I actually scrap lifted (Australian Scrapbook ideas issue 11 pg 27) but changed to suit my needs. Chipboard is from Meant to Be here in Australia - love this chipboard.

Lastly another scrap lifted page (I don't usually scrap lift but these were just what I needed to get my mojo flowing again - from Australian Scrapbook ideas issue 7 page 50). Mine is a lot simpler that is for sure.

I hope you enjoyed and can find some inspiration from the pages that I complete...Until next time enjoy your days with family and creating for that time out that you need!

Birthday Cards

It has been awhile since last posting we have all been sick on and off for four weeks - in that time I have managed to get two birthday cards made for our dad's... been too sick to contemplate doing anything else as I type this my ears are crackling and it is not a nice feeling. The girls and I are on antibiotics for whatever cold this happens to be.

I really want to scrapbook tonight and I have two pages in my head and eight to finalise but since vacuuming and mopping the floor I don't feel up to it, will see how I go though. Might just chose the papers and embellishments and see what takes my fancy - probably bed will call first!

Used Copic markers for colouring Fizzy Moon (the Bear)...he is just so perfect!!!

Until Next Time...
