a trip down memory lane

today I finally (but only cause mathew was hoggin my puter playing puter games!! lol) got around to copying hundreds and hundreds of photos of our old PC (which is still set up in another room - mathew uses it for his study) When we got this new one in Sept I just never got around to going back to the old one and getting the photos or even saving my address book from my email. *shameful I know* but it's done now - now to trawl thru all those photos and do some archiving and get some more pics prinmted! while cleaning up the pics folder I found this bunch of photos that I had re-sized for blog sharing over the past year or so... a trip down memory lane....

what a pair of cuties hey?!

this cranky face just about sums up my week

He's been teething with 6 new teeth, one of which has been infected, he fell over twice, once banged his head by falling off the lounge onto tiles, the other put his top teeth thru his bottom lip, then we discovered he had a mouth full of ulcers. getting better now with some anti-biotics... I can see the light at the end of the tunnel! poor little fella :(

I have managed to get some DT things for LSBS loaded... here's some more of that...

my Dr Seuss CC creations

For this one we just had to simply use circles... a nice easy one to get me moving on Friday night ;)

Layout sketch and use a Dr Suess book quote...

Take inspiration from a Dr Suess book cover, use layered circles and bling, and add some doodling...

That was a whole heap of fun! Can't wait to see what our theme will be for next month, they seem to be getting better and better each and every month! :)

some DT work

Been loving my DT packs lately... well always do LOL but lately I have been very inspired by them. Last month we got 2 sheets of paper form 2 different ranges from KI and had to do one layout from each range, then another one with the leftovers... this is what I did.

and here is a couple of the layouts I've done with the divine Basic Grey Marrakech range... both this and the KI available in the fab LSBS shop

Gotta go, bubs awake (finally - he's been asleep for 3.5 hours!!!!!) Be back soon with some more stuff, have my blogging and scrapping mojo back now that I'm feeling better. Thanks for visiting and any comments. :)

some more recent scrappy crerations

Have been a bit MIA this week... I've been very sick with what I thought was a flu (which is bad enough in this heat) but it turns out it's mastitis. Yep still breatfeeding my hungry little boob luvin man :) so feeling very sorry for myself right now. ouchie.
but anyway.... lol... here is some more of the stuff I've done over the last few weeks... been digging deep into my scrap stash and using stuff I've had for yonks. I love that!

For the next 2 layouts I have used up some of those freebie postcards you pick up with the intention of using but never seem to get aorund to... have only about 20 more to use now, lol. but these were the cutest...

Be back soon with some DT work for LSBS I got a new pack early this week with some yummy new Basic Grey in it so have done a few things with that... love it! might be my fave BG range yet I think... Basic Grey Marrakech that is :) thanks for visiting and any comments you have
