he crawls

Using some older photos of my eldest when he started to crawl for this months inspiration challenge at Get Picky!
We had this gorgeous Summery photo as inspiration as well as the added criteria of using fabric on the page some where, in my case I have used some Prima canvas letters.

Hop on over to the Get Picky blog to see the other DT members inspiration and all the details of how to enter for a fabulous prize. I hope you will play along.
Before I go I wanted to announce the winner of my give away from The Get Picky birthday Blog Hop...

sweet friend

I recently made this card for a very special friend who helped me out with my son's birthday. I have used some delish Core'dinations cardstock , gotta love the great texture it gives to a project.

With 3 boys in the house 2 little 1 big, I sometimes struggle with the BOYNESS of it all. My youngest is into throwing, rolling, smashing...all things 2 year old boys are into ...drives me insane!
...another of my unsuccesful layouts for Bella Blvd, however I love it anyway!

If you are looking for the Get Picky blog hop post go here.
I would like to share with you another of my projects I created for the Basic Grey DT call.
For our honeymoon six years ago we spent some time in the Rockies in Canada, ( if only I had known my sweet friend Lydia back then I could have visited)  it was April so there was still lots of snow, MY favourite place on Earth I think! I wanted to create a keepsake of my most fav photos!

Till next time...

Get Picky...

Welcome to the Get Picky 1st Birthday Blog Hop!
We are celebrating our first year with a very exciting reveal as we unveil our 13th Sketch with you today and share the beautiful creations of both present and past designers from our first year! Some of the team members will be offering prizes so you will want to visit all of the blogs to increase your chances of winning a prize. We are also offering a major prize along with the chance at a Guest Designer spot for the month of November if you visit and leave a comment at all of the blogs in our blog hop and participate in Sketch Challenge #13. The Blog Hop starts today and will remain open until midnight (Australian Eastern Standard Time) on October 28th so this will give you all plenty of time to visit everyone’s blogs and create a layout for the sketch challenge.

Here is Sketch #13
And here is my take on the sketch...

As we mentioned, there are lots of great birthday pressies up for grabs along our hop today. Some of our designers will be offering a RAK of their own and of course there is the chance to become our Guest Designer for November....but what's a celebration without that very special gift
We are so very excited to also announce that Imaginisce have been kind enough to sponsor us with an awesome prize for our very special birthday celebration.

Get Picky is the first stop of our birthday journey where you will find the complete list of all blogs in case there is a glitch along the way. If you would like to play, just follow along the blog path in order so you don’t miss anyone.

Remember, if you want to be considered for the Guest Designer spot in November, once you have visited all the blogs and uploaded your entry for Sketch Challenge #13, please make sure that you go back to the Get Picky Blog and leave a comment on the challenge post.

The blog hop begins here: Get Picky Blog
Your next stop is here: Leanne Allison

I will also be offering up a small RAK for 1 person who leaves a comment. Internationals welcome.

Thank you so much for joining us for this very special birthday celebration and for your continued support!

Recently we went to a little friend's fourth birthday party. She was the cutest little mermaid with an under the water themed party. When I was asked to create a double layout for this weeks Basic Grey sketch competition I knew the photos I took would be perfect for the Indie Bloom pattern papers!
I was so excited to know Basic Grey were going to create a Sketch from my double!!

You can find the sketch and all the details of the competition here, I hope you get a chance to play along for a chance to win some fabulous Basic Grey prizes!

As I have mentioned before my youngest was such an easy chilled out bub, these are some of my all time fav photos of him because they show him to a T, relaxed and just taking in all that is around him. This was another layout for my GDT spot over at Jenni Bowlin studios.

I just wanted to add a personal thankyou to Michelle from LRR buttons, I decided to take a step back from the DT It has been an absolute pleasure being apart of the team and knowing her personally, thanks Shell!
