January Stuck Sketches!

It can't be the 15th of the month already, surely?!!! The rest of the year BETTER NOT fly by this fast....

We have already released the second January sketch over on the Stuck blog, so I best be showing you them both at once!

First off, our 1st January Sketch...

And my take, a 52 Week page called Week 51 - Girly laughs using the November She's Savvy Kit.

Next up, the 15th January sketch revealed over on the blog just today!

And my take, you got it right, another 52 Weeks page called Week 49 - The Big Concert Day all about the VLDA Concert.

The first closeup of my gorgeous Bronte girl and the journaling that goes with my layout...

And another closeup of my big bow together with a super awesome BIG (purple) Purple Pumpkin button.

If you want to be in the running to win some awesome sponsor prizes, just load your take on either sketch to the Stuck blog before the end of January. Good luck!

Xmas, New Year & Birthday Catchup

As did the my house, my business, my schedule, my poor blog got totally neglected over the madness of the Xmas & New Year period! I was actually spending time in my 'real world' with my hubby, kids, family & friends...IT WAS GREAT!

We had a lovely Xmas Day surrounded my family, nothing better than Xmas morning with our babies and then a house full at lunchtime...the house decorated beautifully and everyone enjoying the day.

Here's the layout for Week 52 of my 52 Week Album, 'The Photo' of all of us on Xmas Morning. We actually nearly forgot to take the photo, and Dan had to bring all the bikes back inside especially!!!

A close up of some of the Purple Pumpkin goodness featured on my layout...

The week between Xmas & New Year flew by with hubby working, and the kids & I out & about enjoying time with friends.

New Years Eve was fabulous, spent in at our beautiful Wollongong Harbour with family & friends. The atmosphere was great with music & dancing by all of us, and the highlight of the night being the fireworks at 9.30pm. The kids absolutely LOVED it and this was the first time I think they'll remember actually seeing the fireworks in real life.

The week after New Year was an ongoing birthday celebration for our big 5yo Georgia.

She had a fab birthday on the Thursday spent at Jamberoo Recreation Park...

and then an even fabber (is that actually a word?!) pink party on the Saturday.

A very spoilt girl, but totally deserved in our eyes (of course!).

Four days after Georgie's birthday was Dan's birthday, the big 3-6. The kids loved spending the day with Daddy, even though he had to go off to work that night.

I don't think a full routine will really kick back in for another couple of weeks, with the kids still being on school holidays...but its start to get back to semi normality now with me being back at work, Bronte back at daycare and the other two at holiday care two days a week.

I will be back really soon with another post, and I'll be sure to have some more scrapping to show you!

Thanks for checking in :)
