Purple Pumpkin November Sketch

Oops! Almost forgot to post this layout I did last week for the November sketch challenge over at Purple Pumpkin. What happened to the month of November? It went by way too fast for me!!

Loved this months sketch, here is my take on it, using LOTS of Purple Pumpkin embellishments - vinyl cogs, mini doily, the red & blue star embellishment and spotty buttons!




The photos are from a recent trip to the park of Zane on the flying fox which was a little too big for him to reach so he was often just hanging!

Off to panic about Christmas now!

Scrap the Girls - November

Back with another layout I created last weekend at the crop day at  All About Scrapbooks .
This one is for the November challenge over at Scrap the Girls. The criteria for the month was to scrap a predominanly pink layout and include polka dots and multiple photos. 



I have used a template in the alternating corners of my layout so add some polka dots. I have also used some gorgeous page runners and lollipops from Charms Creations.  I loved this MME title too, she is a sweetheart (mostly!) and definitely makes the world a better place to be!

Show us your Colours

The current theme over at Scrap the Boys is "Show us your Colours". Perfect! I had a few photos of Zane, who started playing soccer this year.





I have used the Bella Boulevard Making the Team papers, a cute windmill from Rainbow Splendour and a Purple Pumpkin spotty button. 


Zane looks cute in his gear, but it will probably be his only season, I have some journalling on the tag, it follows on from the title "First Soccer Season"... and probably your last as well. You were not a fan and spent most of your time heckling the opposition. Maybe when they get goalies you will like it more. We will try again in a few years.   

Thanks for visting

A little bit Spooky...

Each Halloween we seem to get more and more Trick or Treaters, so this year I decided to make it a bit of fun for the kids. We dressed up and I decorated the lounge room and put out some treats! I had lots of lollies on hand too. The kids had a ball, dressing up, eating party food and watching all the kids come trick or treating - and this year there were heaps! I ran out of lollies and had to dig into the stash I had put aside for Zane's birthday the following week. 

Naturally I took a couple of photos. This one is my fave of us all pulling pretty scary faces and I have scrapped it with Bella Boulevard Too Cute to Spook range! I have also used this fabulous halloween tree from 2crafty and super cute button from Purple Pumpkin!




Aren't we pretty? Haha! 

I also scrapped an older photo of Zane that I had started ages ago, but never finished. I started over completely and love it now. This was taken down the coast one day after a bit too much sun for my boy who has a very fair complexion!





He looks so little in this photo, today he lost his first tooth, he is not a baby anymore!

Thanks for visiting!

Happy 6th Birthday Zane!

Yesterday my handsome little man turned 6! We celebrated with parties both days of the weekend, McDonalds for dinner last night and cupcakes today for school!! Phew exhausting stuff!



Here he is on Saurday before his first party which was for all the boys from his class, we had it at a play centre and they spent the majority of the time running around and we barely saw them!



Sunday we had the family over, and I made a Smurf Mushroom house for him, complete with super hard to find Smurfs!! 



And one of the 4 of us:


Sunday was very hot and threatened to storm and rain which is standard for us having a party at home, but it held off so all the kids went swimming. Zane got a cool whale pool toy from his cousins:



He was thoroughly spoilt by everyone, received fabulous presents and had a great weekend!! 

Monday he got the last of his presents, and his favourite present his 3DS with smurf game of course!!

 

We ended the birthday celebrations with a trip to McDonalds for dinner - the birthday boys pick of course! Some of his cousins came to celebrate too - 2 out of 5 smiling isn't too bad??? Ha!



Happy Birthday Zane!  Can't believe you are now six years old!

Quick Shares

Popping in quickly to share a couple of layouts I have scrapped recently for some challenges at Scrapz

The first one was for a What's Cooking challenge to use black, metal and at least 2 circles. The theme for the week was On Your Bike, so I scrapped some pics of Lily recently trying her hardest to master cycling:



The next page was for the Melbourne Cup sweep, based on a pagemaps sketch. This super cute photo of Lily when she was about 1, I found when I was sorting through some photos. My sister would always say to her "Hands up if you're gorgeous" to get her to raise her arms. Too cute. 



Wishing you all a great weekend! No scrapping for me, my eldest is turning 6 and we have lots of partying to do!
