lots of layouts to share.

I had my first play with my new camera yesterday. Pippa was the only one home so she was my test subject. i have never been able to get a decent shot of her with my old camera. im loving this shot. can't wait to scrap it. im imagining a crown on her head what do you think?

I had a ball on the weekend at the retreat. deb and sally did a fantastic job and the venue was awesome. EVERYTHING was under the one roof, crop room, shop, kitchen, all bedrooms and bathrooms. There was and en suite for every 2 bedrooms yes NOT camp style cubicle showers and the food was great 3 hot meals a day and morning t and supper.

i managed to scrap 7 Lo and 7 cards. im getting into the habit of using the leftover scraps from my lo to create cards. I have never enjoyed creating cards but it was fun.

ok here are my LO from the retreat

here are all of my cards, i planned ahead, owens 1st birthday card and xaviers 2nd birthday cards are all done.

I was lucky enough to print lots of photo's from owens shoot with katie toland so i had lots of awesome photos to scrap. it made it much easier to choose photos and get inspired.

Her is just so delicious.

here is owen with his hot mum nicola. If you hadn't guessed im loving elsie papers at the moment. very freestyle pages as well.
Yes i am addicted to drawing outlines around papers etc. i would have to say my brown and black and white gel pens got a work out on the weekend :)
check out those blue eyes
and this LO yes i have scrapped the new basic grey. i was never overly impressed by it when i saw it online but there are some papers that i did fall in love with. this is the recess range.

yes i did manage to scrap one LO of coby on the weekend. the journelling reads

'you have been in my life now for 1617 days. where has that time gone?if you ask me it's all been a blur' . when i took this blurred shot i immediately knew how i wanted to scrap it.

another one of my 365 dy photo's scrapped!

This is chris and i sitting watching TV on a wednesday night, coby is usually at his dad's house so we take the opportunity to have a quiet relaxing night.

and this LO that i scrapped a few days before the retreat. i just love the photo's of him katie toland is so amazingly talented.

Hi, Owen is more delicious IRL he is such a happy baby. Its nice to actually have a look at your layouts on the blog as I saw them on the weekend but now can have a good study and they are great.
Regatta House is such a great spot for the retreat and going to be better when it is extended hopefully some of if will be completed by November.
See you tommorrow night.
