You mean the world to me


I have mentioned that I am going through some of my older photos – wow, it is so cool to look back at my boys and see how they have grown and changed.  It is great to remember the little boy and the mischief in his eyes.  This is my now 19 year old, how time flies. Must say I am pretty addicted to Kraft Cardstock as my ‘go to’ background – but it seems to just work.


Missing You Already


This LO was inspired by a magazine cut out.  The photo is of my son Ethan – it was taken just before he left to go to Waikato for University. The LO is kind of fussy for me – but I really enjoyed scruffying it up abit.  Crumb Cake is definitely my go to for a background and it works well with the linen thread here.

Just Hanging Out


I love scrapbooking my boys.  I think they get ‘over’ the amount of photos I take of them – the joke is that every inch of their lives is scrapbooked = they often say “MUM, is nothing sacred!!”  and the answer is “NO, sorry boys!!!”  With boys to scrap I often find it more challenging when it comes to embellishments, sometimes flowers and fancy ribbon just don’t cut it.  (I do use flowers on the boys pages sometimes – well, actually whenever it will work, much to their disgust)  For this LO I used some hemp twine for a design element and I think it works well with the pictures.
