“Hoot Together!”

This layout I had fun with this afternoon! I didn’t feel like doing a set criteria with a challenge. This was just a mish mash of pics I had of the boys and their pups and I just wanted to get them scraped!!!  I used a sketch form this new place I have just recently found that has lots of double layout sketches!

I have just had printed 100 photos and I just need to have some ‘me time’ scraping I think!!!

I used some pattern papers that I got from Paperrific earlier in the yr, stamped some embellishments and the two tags ar from Jacqui and Sheryn form a tag swap I had on my blog awhile ago! It was good to use some of the stash!!!!

“Meeting New Friends!”

                         Amy B is on he left and Amy G and Xander on the right!

Yesterday I met an online friend” in real life” (IRL) for the first time which was fabulous and got to see my other on-line friend again!  Amy, her husband and little bub came over from NSW for her aunts funeral and they stopped in Colac for a break on the way home!  It is great to meet someone when you have got to know them online! I felt like we knew one another already.

I had a lovely catch up with Amy Grantham and Amy Boreham who drove over from Geelong! Yep, they are both Amy’s lol!!!  They are both so lovely to talk too and we could have talked for hrs! lol!  I even saw my cousin for 5 mins who was on her way back to Warrnambool!

I snapped a few photos of course, and I have emailed them to the girls!  Amy B and I are going to have a scrap day together very soon!

“Treasured Journey!”

This lo I finished last night for H & S. This was Karen’s challenge to use her sketch, masking, butterflies and distressing! I wanted to scrap these pics of J and I when I took him to Camperdown for a cars show. I wanted it to have an old feel about it so I used some Kaiser papers, masking, distressing, tickets, twine etc !I enjoyed doing this one of us having a day out together! He had a wonderful time seeing the old classic cars over there too! Ahh the things we do! lol!

“Lovely Lisa’s Kits!”

I know I have posted about Lisa Kamphius and her lovely kits before, but I am sooo wrapped with my new ones that I spoilt myself with I wanted to show you again!

She uses pattern papers from Bo Bunny and My Minds Eye and lovely cardstock and embellishments to match in and make yourself some lovely layouts and cards etc! They are great value at $10 each and she only charges you $7  post no matter how many kits you buy!!!

I purchased 2 boyish kits and 3 girly/heritage kits and I am looking forward to making some lovely layouts with all my goodies!

No, I am not getting paid for putting this on my blog for her, I just love her kits and their value and want to share a great buy with you!

Pop on over to

http://www.ourlittlesliceofparadise.blogspot.com/    and have a look at her blog and  if you would like her email to contact her just let me know!

“Paper Problems!”

Do you have ‘paper problems”?

I do at the moment with a big mix up of my pattern papers and card stock in two baskets and not being able to find anything!

Being in these baskets they take up alot of room and Willo our pup has decided she wants to try and take them out on me!  Teeth marks are a good look for distressing! lol!

As you can see they are pretty out of order and mixed up! not good at for saving time! I decided to have rethink and I purchased two Vertical paper holders which make a big difference on space!

So below is my re-vamped paper stash!  I have my kits and A4 card stock in the basket and the paper holders have my card stock and pattern papers!

Now I need to replenish my card stock. or stop scrap booking!  Haha, not going to happen! Hopefully will be able to get some this weekend at the Craft Show in Melbourne!  TFL 🙂 Kerri x

“I love You More Than….!”

I finished this lo of my baby son for Heather’s Rainbow Challenge over at the CC at Home and Scraped over the weekend!

For the challenge you need to use the rainbow colors in sequence on your page! I did this by using the ribbon bows down the side of the photos!

These pics were of JJ and he was only a few months old!

We were visiting Gran and to save her dragging out the bassinet she made him a little bed in the wash basket for the time we were there! I think he loved it!

I masked a few Glimmermist colors around the page to soften it up and made the little bow banner on the bottom!

I thought the title was appropriate for the theme of the layout! I am very happy with my page!
