Ruby Chewsday

Well, here is a layout about why our dear puppy Ruby girl gets affectionately - well most of the time anyway - called Ruby Chewsday. She chews anything, anytime.... LOL!!
Any day is a Ruby Chewsday in our house!! LOL!! All I can say is it's lucky she's lovable!!!
Here are some long-promised Easter photos. Connor was such a crack-up during our Egg Hunt. He found all the eggs, then made us hide them time and time again - so he could keep finding them over and over again. He even made us close our eyes, so he could hide them. Funny thing was though, he'd put a pile of eggs in one spot, then insist on joining in on the hunt - only to run straight to the pile hidden!!! Funniest bit was he'd say "Ummmmmmmmm" then "Ahahhhhhhh" when he found them - as if it was a surprise!! Hahah!!

Here he is "closing" his eyes - do you see him peeking???? LOL

Connor on the egg hunt - he loved finding all the eggs, over and over.....haha

The egg booty - in a little basket I made!!

Of course, not ALL the eggs got hidden every time - some made it into Connor's mouth. Check out the chocolate moosh!! Lil cutie pie!!

Thanks for popping by, I'm slowly catching up on my blogging - Haha!

Prima Strawberry Kisses and Bo Bunny Mamarazi

Teehee - I am just trying to catch up on my scrappy shares - I have beens scrapping, but I just don't seem to get the time to upload them, or post them on my blog....

Anywho, I have been having an absolute ball playing with some of the latest CHA products - there are so many divine products out there at the moment, and boy oh boy, is my hip pocket feeling the pain! LOL!!
Oh well, at least I have lots of pretties to look at!! LOL!

This range would have to be one of the most beautiful I have seen in a long time - Prima Strawberry Kisses - this paper is divine, and I have another greenish one with roses etc on it, I am planning to use it VERY soon too!! Yummo - as I've said before, Prima have outdone themselves this CHA!!!

Now THIS range is divine too - Bo Bunny Mamarazi - was I slow or was anyone else not quick to pick up the play on words - Paparazi/Mamarazi "roll eyes" gosh I am a little slow on the uptake at times!!!! LOL!!
Anyway, the papers and embellies in this range are fabulously grungy, and I had a ball playing with them.

I also used Tim Holtz Rock Candy Distress Paint and Stickles - sooooo great for adding texture, it really is a must to add to your stash!!

Thanks for looking, everyone - I'll probably be back again tomorrow with more shares!!!

Scrap Within Reach

Luisa at Addicted to Craft sent me some gorgeous Scrap Within Reach - Carnival Ride papers and embies. I love the colours of this range - beautiful rusty oranges and burnt reds.
Perfect for autumn layouts etc....

Here is another layout I did with the range - I scrapped a typically cheeky photo of my boy.

Sooooo much gorgeous product - I even scrapped two cards with the range.

Hope you enjoyed the scrappy share, thanks for popping by on my blog!

To The Fallen

They shalt not grow old

As we who are left grow old.

Age shall not weary them,

Nor the years condemn

At the going down of the sun,

and in the morning,

We will remember them.

Lest We Forget

To all those who have loved ones who have fallen,

To all those who have served to defend this beautiful, lucky country,

To all those who are still serving in the armed forces,

THANK YOU for the sacrifices you have made so that my loved ones and I can enjoy the blessed life we do.

I am forever grateful.

I haven't blogged for soooooo long, and it isn't because I haven't got anything to say, or that I am not scrapping, I have just seemed, I don't know, too ummmmmm, uninspired blog wise????
Lots and lots has happened since my last post, we went through a cyclone here in Mackay, we had a lovely Easter just chilling round the house, not doing much at all - I'll post some Easter photos another time. Connor and I went away to Bundaberg to visit Mum and Dad - and again I'll post those another time....
Today, we had a lovely time..... we went to Airlie Beach for lunch. I have to say that they have done a terrific job of tidying up since Ului crossed there - it is fantastic as always....
We went to a place called Capers - and it is wonderful, the food is so fresh as they source it all from local suppiers.... Just yummo!!

This was the view from our table - magnificent!!

My meal - 1/2 a Chilli Mud Crab and Jasmine Rice.

Mark's meal - 1/2 kilo prawns with Aioli Cream, Salad and Chips....
Connor, of course, had fish and chips - LOL!!

I have been scrapping too - this is the my sample for the new Kraft It Up Challenge.

The Challenge is to do a Monochromatic Layout - Kraft Base, of course, and the only colour you CAN'T use is BROWN.....
Here is a close up of the embellie cluster.....

Over at Addicted to Craft, there is a new DT Sketch Challenge. We were given some gorgeous Prima Mulberry paper, and an Anam Stubbington Sketch. It is amazing how we've all come up with such different layouts - go and check it out, and while you are there, give the Sketch a whirl, too - it is a wonderful sketch!
Here is my Layout..... Isn't the paper just too divine for words??? I love Prima stitched Mulberry Paper - the textures, the colours, the images..... booootiful!!!!
Here are a couple of close ups - for those gold leaf swirls, I used the Prima Leaf Swirl Stamp, and embossed the image in gold.... the idea was to have little flashes of gold to blend with the luscious paper, also the gorgeous gold Prima flower centres.... Ooooooh, I had such fun with this!!!

Oh, well, that's it from me for now -I'll come back later with more shares, promise....

Thanks for visiting!!
