Scrappin up a storm......

Well we have been in Rocky for over a week now and seriously ......it already feels like home to us. We've slowly been sussing out the location of the town and i already know where to find most of the important places.
The house is nearly unpacked - i think we only have about half a dozen boxes to go and then totally done thank goodness. Unfortunatly it lacks alot of the little homely touches that it needs. There was a whole lot of stuff that had to be left behind and these little extra touches just didn't make the list. Oh well, gives me an excuse to 'touch up' in a bit of a new style.
Have been scrapping up a storm most nights - have managed ten layouts now with in the last week. Unfortunatly i can't share a whole lot - one is for an online class, a couple are for Feb's kit at Embellished (totally YUMMO!!), a couple more are for Elsie challenges and one that i did tonight at a scrap date with the fanastic miss Ali so haven't taken a pic of it yet. Can share these ones though.

This is just a super quick Design Team layout for Scrapgenie using Gin X papers and coasters. Little man Nick lost his first tooth this past week, very exciting moment for him - shame we never got to see the tooth though. Lucky the tooth fairy is very forgiving lol.

Love the light, fresh colours of this layout. My baby is not a baby anymore.....is very sad. So very independent now, and tackling the big kids swing at the park seems to be a good way to prove it. Really wanna try and incorporate multiple pix on layouts from now one, happy with the way this one sits.

This one is for my lovely hubby Steven, took this pic of him just sitting on the steps of our new house, love the way the pic came up. Another simple layout, but again happy with the way it come up. My aim is to scrap alot more of steven this year - whether he likes it or not LOL.And last but not least is this little 9x9 i did of Rylan (yes i have scrapped layouts on Maddy, just can't share them yet lol - poor neglected child lol). Lovin this size - super quick and easy to whip together, and i love the fact that a standard 6x4 photo sits perfectly. Again with the light and fresh colour combo, its just really appealing to me at the mo.

Well thats about it for now, havin a scrap get together here thursday night - CAN'T WAIT - should be awesome fun, so i better head off and do a little tidy.

Till next time,

take care and chat soon,
