Another birthday card and 2 layouts

Spent another weekend scrapping and finishing a layout that I started last week.

Late last year my little sister went and eloped this is the photo that she sent to all to announce that they got married.

The birthday card I did using scrap boutique challenge

I also got delivery of my latest scrap area product. This is the best thing since sliced bread for storage. Now all I need to do is fill it!!!!

I did a layout!!!!

I don't want to ginks myself but I have been crafty this week and I feel really good for it.

Tonight in between cooking dinner, bathing, cleaning up and watching The Block I whipped up a layout of Lachlan's first school photo.

I still can't believe that we have a school aged boy in the house.

More cards

I am a bit behind with the family birthday cards - I haven't made my SIL her birthday card for her birthday that was during the week and I needed to make a birthday card for a young man who is turning 13 and another mothers day card was needed for Lachlan's Godmother

Celebrating scrapbooking day my way!

What a weekend had a few cards that I had to make for people this weekend. The first one was for a special little princess who turned 1 yesterday. I borrowed a pile of tools from Ange for this one and even though it took most of the afternoon to make the card I am absolutely stoked as to how it turned out.

Red Earth Retreat

Since the last time I posted, I have gone to a retreat organised by Red Earth Scrapbooking with 2 amazing friends in the Blue Mountains.

I had never been to the Blue Mountains, but I will definitely go back.

The retreat was small only 12 ladies attended however it was fabulous I learnt some new techniques and had many laugh.

At the retreat I did a handful of card s and 7 layouts (mindful that most of the layouts still need some tweaking) but I will get them finished soon....

I have also finished my step mothers mothers day present and it is ready to post a week early... Now to get the key office.

My niece turned 4 last month and my cousin in Malta had a baby so cards where required.

I am also clearing out the scrapbook at the moment so I will post photos soon!!!
