White with 1 Design Team

Some more Exciting News to Share..I’m joining the Design Team at White with 1. This is a Fantastic site with a Twist. Each month a monthly challenge is set, Layouts must contain the basic colour scheme of white…1 other colour and 1 other requirement…this could be an element, technique, product type etc…So for great alternative inspiration (and there is certainly lots)…pop over and have a look.

A Few  Layouts where I have used White with 1.

I normally don't post the double layouts that I do but I was really pleased with the way these came out and each one has alot of great memories attached to them.

Mothers Day 2008...My mother is definately a woman of strength and great love.She has been through so much saddness and difficulties throughout her life but she has always put her family first...Thankyou Mum

A few Snapshots of our New Years Eve Party...earlier in the night that is hahahahahaha.(Sorry the photos aren't to clear I had alot of reflection when taking the photos)

Way back when we were kids my parents always hid our Easter Eggs around the yard on Easter morning...so of now course with my niece and nephew the tradition continues...as well as a few other gifts as well.

My eldest Brothers Wedding Day...its hard to believe that it was nearly 9 years ago.

Celebrating the memory of ones life is as important as Cherishing the Life we Live now...so this double layout is a Special one that I created for my Dad.

Snapshot of a Good Life

After playing at the park all morning, we got back to my home with very very dirty feet. So I filled up this very Big Blue Bucket and told my nephew and niece to take of their shoes...before I knew it they had stripped down to nothing thinking they were having a bath...So I thought why not the weather was hot...I have never heard the both of them Laugh and Giggle so much before, they thought it was so much fun.Then the Bubbles came out...they went everywhere, all over the pavers, chairs, table, my dog and of course ME.

A Snapshot of a Good Life...most definately.

This is my Layout that I have created for Creative Scrappers.It's Sketch #38 by the Deanne Burton. I have used the Heidi Swapp "Dream Dining Room" range of Papers,Creative Imaginations Rubons and the Crystal swirls are from Prima.

As I have mentioned before I will start teaching at Scraploot from March (can't wait)...and with that exciting new venture another one closes...So the Wonderful Girls that I have been teaching for the last 2 years organised a Huge Farewell for Me and it ended up being a double Farewell as my dear friend "B" was also saying Good-Bye...What a Great Way to Celebrate...From the food and drinks to the laughs and reminising...I was very Humbled by the Wonderful Night that had been organised,the Beautiful Handmade Card and the Gorgeous Box of Flowers (Red of course hahahaha) that I was gifted with..My Speech that followed was one full of Laughs and yes a few Tears...To the girls that organised the Night itself,the Invites, Card and Flowers ...Thankyou so Very Much...and to all my Dear Friends Thankyou for making it such an Awesome Night...HUGS to You All..

1461 days ago, a Special Little Baby Boy entered the world, to the absolute delight of his new parents and his new extended family...I can still remember the first time I held my nephew...our close bond began right then and it still remains...4yrs on...His growing up too fast but Oh He is such a Darling...affectinate, smart, cheeky, energetic and an unbelievable memory...Happy Birthday to Ya (as he would say).

After spending a day scrapping with my friend Carol and seeing her design I needed to lift it, this is my spin on her lovely design.

Catching Up

It's been a while since I've posted some layouts but with being back at work and getting back into a routine, I'm slowly catching up. The weekend has been great, a Birthday Party for the Little Man and two great Pool parties with friends
(just suffering some very sore muscles from Pool Volley Ball)

The following 3 layouts are the last few that I was'nt able to teach, but I can tell you that all my new designs for Scraploot are all finished and I will be posting a few sneak peaks before my classes begin...Thanks to all the wonderful emails and messages that I have received, see you all soon.

For those that know me well they will not be surprised by this layout, very monochromatic and yes Very Red...its a layout that I just had to do.

Playing around in the backyard, just chatting away and caught on camera.

These photos are a few of the outtakes that were taken on my Nieces birthday last year. Inspiration for the layout came from a designer at Scrapbook.com (sorry I can't remember who it was).All 3 layouts feature ranges of paper from Basic Grey
