I just love the beach it is true...I have so many photos of the beach to scrapbook. I have had this one printed out since 2009 and loved it. Most of the time I hold on to photos until I find that perfect paper or sketch. Then sometimes you just have to go for it and not wait any longer. I was so pleased I have finally scrapped this one. I was really happy to use one of my new washi tapes I brought recently from and it just goes so good together.

Word circle and tags from Blissful collections from Authentique paper.

she loves splat

Shania loves to read books everywhere she goes and on our holiday we visited a bookstore and sure enough she found the reading corner. This is one of her favourite picture books. I wanted to feature the paw print washi with a different sort of photo other than one of a pet dog or cat. I liked how this worked out really well.

Paw print washi from used in a few ways and Basic Grey cat stamped onto old dictionary paper. Crochet red flower from an esty store. Part of the title using yellow Thickers from American Craft.

The chick goes cluck

This photo is from Kindy last year when the farmyard on wheels came to play. She didn't know what to do with the chicken that was handed to her to hold as you can see on her face! This is a simple layout that came together quickly with just the right paper I had in my stash for a while now.

Pattern papers from October Afternoon farm fresh range and the spotted button by Purple Pumpkin.


I love this photo of Mia with the autumn leaves and it has taken me a while to find the perfect paper to go with it. I found I had a sketch but ended up changing I do quite often. I am trying to use some of my different paper ranges I have left over from other layouts.

This fairy whispers paper and believe transparency is from Glitz and the rub ons from Basic Grey.
The butterfly and tag is from My Mind's eye. The fairy charm from a bead shop was silver so I coloured it with a black sharpie to change the appearance which worked out really well.

This is the first photo I thought of which is perfect for this paw print washi from and I have a few more different layouts which I am working on now and will share soon.
My children have really wanted a pet for years now and they are still waiting for a number of reasons which I won't go into right now. So when this cat sat meowing at our door and ran inside everytime the door was opened my children were so happy. I did end up looking after the cat while we put an ad on the local deli window. In the end the owner came home from holidays and told us his name was George !!
