One with white...

Blue Genes - Can you tell we share the same jeans gene ?!?

Note to self - photos of layouts taken at night do not work.
Next note to self - start scrapping earlier and you won't have to take photos of layouts at night and then re-shoot the morning after LOL.

Decided last minute to try the January White With 1 challenge - although mine ended up more One with White, featuring navy blue and a banner, and a gorgeous photo of our family taken by Claire at See Be Art.

I love the Leeann Pearce designed beach huts - perfect for this layout at the photo was taken in front of our local beach huts, and I loved recycling my old jeans pocket.

On the home front, getting ready for back to school, had SLOW holidays this year, and loving it, can't believe they will be over so soon!!  Glad I was able to spend some time sorting through my stash & sent a huge box of goodies to Chelle in Queensland to forward on to crafters who lost theirs in the recent floods.

Thanks for stopping by :)

Wow what a year so far...

Spent the last couple of weeks crossing my fingers as both my Dad & brother are in Queensland - luckily the waters stopped at my brothers back steps, and only his shed & chook house saw any damage.  Dad's property was safe too.  Heart and thoughts go out to all those who did not fare so well.  Collecting up some of my excess supplies to send to flood affected scrappers up north.

Honoured to have been chosen as this weeks featured member over at Colour Combo Challenge.  Here's my layout inspired by this weeks colours and a challenge to create a scene with clouds - had fun playing with the paints and glimmermist & realised I'm definitely a BRIGHT scrapper LOL!

Happy New Year...

Spent the last evening of 2010 at the family fireworks in town - first time we've ventured in with kiddies.  Caught the train there and back - gotta love free public transport!!  Really enjoyed it though DH wanted to know why it was Guy Sebastian singing and not somebody else... like Pearl Jam for instance LOL!

Hope you had a stunning New Year and are looking forward to an amazing 2011 too!!
