I {heart} SFS!

I love Scrapbooking From Scratch SO MUCH in fact that I'm driving three hours to get there and spending three nights while I'm at it! Can't wait to spend some time with my beautiful friend Peta and all the Hunter girls. I reckon there will be a lot of laughs...I can feel it in my waters! Two more sleeps, and I'm there baby! And Donna arrives tomorrow....its all happening!!!

Speaking of SFS, here's a couple of blind scraps I've done recently.

I've used the new OA Seaside range for this one...and for a non beachy page, so thats a bonus!

And the latest one, again using the OA Seaside. Peta threw me by putting a circle flower in the steps....I just couldn't make it work with my page about footy gear! So I kind of went off on my own little tangent and ended up with this...

See all you 'sheepish' Hunter girls soon!

LIfe Is Good

...in more ways than one...

- My wonderful husband and his team came 3rd at the National Mines Rescue competition in QLD on Friday, and are now spending a few relaxing days on the Gold Coast and are watching the V8's today.
- Two sleeps till he gets home, the kids & I are counting down.
- Three sleeps till my beautiful cousin Donna arrives!
- Four sleeps till Peta's retreat!
- Just spent a couple of hours with my friend Linda.
- Spent the whole weekend with Emma, thanks for all your help chick.
- It looks like I have myself a 'real job' and start work after my b'day.

And as well as all this, a weekend of rainy weather means I've been scrapping! Funnily enough, I've been going to town on the Echo Park Life Is Good range of papers and omg, I am IN LOVE!

Here's just a couple:

At Home - Miss Bronte on her 2nd birthday cutting her cake. :)

Who Would've Known - the last photos taken of Georgie before she had her accident last October which resulted in her losing one of her front teeth. :(

So Lucky - Kaz & Molly at Belmore Basin on Molly's 2nd birthday, with our gorgeous Wollongong scenery in the background. This one is a scraplift from a layout in the current Scrapbook Trends magazine. :)

These pages make me happy, I hope they make you happy too! Till next time. xoxo

Poor little We're Savvy...

...sitting here all on its lonesome, only poor little lonely kit left, can you give it a home? Its very yummy and looks like this:

And for only $25 - with over $30 worth, you can't beat it for value! Grab it here.

Here's a couple of pages I managed with this kit. First one from a Wiggles concert a while back now.

And this one of me & my girlfriends at the Fire Brigade Xmas Party last year. I love that you can still create a page and a memory from a yucky blurry iphone photo!

A busy day here:

- Total outfit bought for my party (dress, shoes, bag, hair thingo, jewellery)
- Visited San
- Home for a lovely visit from Kelley
- Out again to shop for halloween costumes
- School pick up
- Park with my boy
- Off to post office and a coffee (again, with my boy)
- i98fm to pick up the $100 voucher I won yesterday to Steel Wok restaurant!
- Preschool pickup

And then home for the usual dinner/bath/bed rush and reading with my boy. We are currently reading a chapter of Beast Quest together a night and he is absolutely loving it!

Some peace and quiet here now, but I'm thinking I might take myself off for an early night...another big day tomorrow!

Which mag?

...is your favourite?

I buy ALL the local Aussie mags by subscription for the business - Scrapbooking Memories, Scrapbook Creations & Creating Keepsakes. I enjoy reading these and love to see the names of lots of my online (and real life!) friends being published.

I have to admit though, my most favourite magazine is the US Scrapbook Trends magazine (which I'm currently stocking in the Scrapbook Savvy store). Not so much advertising and omg, the photography of the layouts is to absolutely die for.

To say I am inspired by these layouts is an understatement - I literally drool over this magazine. I decided to scraplift one of the layouts in the current mag, and it turned out like this...

Let me know if you're keen to get a hold of this magazine yourself, like I said, its to die for!

October 15th @ Stuck

Halfway through the month means another sketch over at Stuck?! Ok, I know its a few days past the middle of the month, but things have been kinda crazy hectic here!

The new one looks like this...

And my take, using some of the new Bo Bunny Whoo-ligans paper that I picked up at Scrapbooking Delights.

We'd love to see your entry over here at Stuck by the end of the month for your chance to win some awesome prizees from our sponsors!

My big little girl...

...got herself some pretties today! She has been asking us for weeks if she could get earrings. She plays with mine, she admires her sister's. Even after we told her it would hurt and the lady would 'pinch' her ears, she was still keen. So I booked her in this morning and off we went...

Drawing on the dots, she was such a good girl!

Two guns ready to go...one...two...three...


All finished, after only a minute or so of tears. So brave. xoxo

Well done Bronte girl!

Pink Ribbon He's Pages!

We had a fab day at the Savvy Delights Pink Ribbon Crop yesterday - thank you to everyone who participated and made the day a success. The girls who came along, our sponsors and a big thank you to my friend Sandra for all her help in getting the day organised.

I managed a few pages while we were there, and funnily enough I was scrapping with the sold out He's Savvy kit on our girly pink ribbon day, lol!

My first page of Cooper on crazy hair day at school - Hairy Scary. I combined the kit with some of my gorgeous new goodies from Purple Pumpkin, love them!

And my other Spider Girl - Miss Bronte. Once again incorporating some of the yummy new Purple Pumpkin halloween goodies.

The weekend is nearly over here, its been a good one. I'm tired. :)

A Day With The Villians

What an awesome day out for my beautiful friend Erin - we've had our ups and downs over the years as happens with teenage girls, but I can proudly say we are in an awesome place and I'm loving our friendship right now. Starting kindy together and now celebrating your 30th birthday - 25 years of friendship and going strong...here's to the next 25 years babe!

1st drinks at 9am!

Princess Erin :)

Me & Ezz with The Riddler

Thanks Scarlett for organising our day, we had a ball. :)

Have you gone over and got your She's Savvy kit yet, scrappy friends? I managed yet ANOTHER page from this one on Friday night of me & Em, I {heart} this girl.

Today marked the start of the Nippers season with Cooper moving up to 7's this year. He had a great morning on the beach.

As did the little girls, playing in the sand.

I'm so grateful that Dan is off the weekends now and that he can come to Nippers, makes my day so much happier and the kids just adore having him there.

Right now we're on the lounge watching The Race and will be heading out once again this arvo to Cooper's footy presentation. Another huge weekend for us!

Yellow Makes Me Happy!

My second page so far with this kit, the first being my kit challenge page revealed over the weekend.

I am loving this kit so much, yellow makes me happy. :D

An awesome night out back in February with some of my 'very savvy friends'.

I'm sure a She's Savvy Kit would make you happy too and be right at home in your scrap room, so head over and grab one here! TFL!

The party continued...

...in the Wardy house for another day & night! We headed off to WIN Entertainment Centre to welcome home our Dragons with the rest of Wollongong on Monday morning. It was a great atmosphere and the kids had a blast, singing & cheering & clapping, it was awesome! Some great photo opportunities once again as well, funny that... ;)

The kids outside the entertainment centre :)

The awesome crowd inside, Dan & Jas were down the bottom with the boys but me & Leesh stayed up the top with the girls.

Our premiership trophy!!

Upon returning home more friends came round and we partied on well into the night, thanks everyone, we've had an amazing couple of days and are so lucky to have such an awesome group of friends & family! xoxo

Today we've had to return to some sort of normality...well, party central is now scrap central once again anyways. ;)

Crop day with my girls - Mum, Leesh, Ezz & Kindra. I have yet to scrap a page but the kit orders are out the door and the new stock is now uploaded.

Mmmm, have I got a page to share that you haven't seen yet? Let me see...

Here's one! This was the layout from Lisa's class at our retreat, I just LOVED this Girls Paperie kit from Scrapbooking Delights! Thanks Lis, love how my layout turned out. :)

TFL! See you soon, blogger friends. :)
