Should have some other layouts to share soon just have to get around to photographing them.
Thanks for taking the time to look and leaving your comments.

Lots to share Today!

I have a little toot today! I have a page in this months Scrapbooking Memories magazine (Vol12 No8) in the christmas section of the gallery. Always exciting to see your work in print, it is the first time I have been in this magazine.
Ok some Design Team stuff to share now...
For this months newsletter over at Ideal Papercraft I got to work with Bo Bunny Block Party.
I have to admit these really aren't the type of papers I would buy and am never interested in but every now and then I enjoy a challenge and I am very happy with the outcome.
This first page is definately my favourite out of the three. Loved using some of the photos I took of Cooper rolling over. Some detail, sorry about the not so good shots it has been very overcast here.
My second page

Detail shot

And my third page, always good to get some more holiday photos scrapped, unfortunately there is still sooooooo many left to scrap.

Detail shot. Got to love some of the finds you can get at $2 shops, thats where the flower was from.

I have a few more page that I still have to photograph yet, hopefully I will share them with you soon. Thanks for taking the time to look and for all of your comments.
Until next time Take Care.

Studio H Photography!

I have decided after alot of encouragement from everyone I know to start up my own photography buisness. Everyone loves all of the photos that I have taken of my son and ask if I do it for a living.... So I guess now I can kind of say yes, but more as a hobby for the moment. But you never know, everyone has to start from somewhere. If you click on the photo above it should direct you to the new blog I have set up if not here is the web address

I am trying to set up a facebook account for my photography too, but am still trying to figure out how to do it properly.

Well that is it for me at the moment, very busy with lots of stuff at the moment.

Thanks for taking the time to look and comment.

Until next time Take Care

I'm Back, I have been very busy!

Well I have been a little AWOL from my blog.... But I have been very busy.

Firstly I have been organising my 30th party (which was last Friday night, and I had a great night too!) I turnt 30 today!!! I have had my parents stay and heaps of running around the place.

In between all of this I have been doing some crocheting, I plan on putting some of it in my Etsy store to see how it goes along with a few other things.

This is one of the little cute beanies I have made. Everytime I put it on my son Everyone asks me where I got it from and I mean I have been getting stopped on the street to be asked! I think the model is pretty darn cute too though!

And also this cute beanie for my daughter, she just thinks she is beautiful in it! On the Scrapping front, this month for Ideal Papercraft I got to work with October Afternoon's The Thrift Shop. I LOVE October Afternoon's paper's, I think O say that everytime but I really do love their ranges they are definately my favourite brand.... anlong with a few closely following behind. Well here are the pages I have done with the papers.

The first page is to tell the story of my kids coming home layette, Ohhh I wish they would stay this little! Why do they have to grow up????

This next page is to record all of my DD favourite songs that she loves to sing, she definately loves to sing along to herself all the time.... as I am typing this I can hear her playing and singing along!

The last page I have to share I have borrowed an Idea from the fabulous American scrapper Ali Edwards. I have included a photo of all of us at two years of age just so people can see that our daughter looks like the both of us. I will do the same thing when my son turns two.

And lastly a not so spectacular card, but a card at least using all the scraps I had left over.

Well thanks for stopping by and commenting I love to hear what you have to say.
I have a few other things to share but just haven't taken photo's of them as yet!
Until next time take care

Well this first page is from when we visited the Temple of Heaven in China last year.
OMG!! I can't believe it is nearly 12 months ago that we went.... where does the time go. Some detail shots for you.Love these alphas from Prima.
The pleated ribbon in this range is tooo yummy wish I had of bought more!!!
These photos were taken of Lily and me on the merry-go-round at Hong Kong Disneyland.

Detail photo.
I just love these photos of my little girl. She was actually getting her bum changed while we were at the Temple of Heaven.The way she was just laying back ever so relaxed I just had to take some photos.
Some detail shots, I just loved the big chunky gem brads that go with the collection.

Another page using photos from our holiday last year to Hong Kong and China. These photos were taken when we went on our day trip to Macau.
Some of the border stickers from the range, and I just had to use every bit of the red and white patterned paper.(I put it on every page!)

Well thanks for looking and all your comments.

The Colour Room Palette #4

Have you seen this fabulous new challenge blog? It is called The Colur Room
they have a gorgeous new palette of colours every Friday this is #4, so this week I had a little bit more time for free scrapping so I decided to play along. This is what I came up with, I really struggled with not putting much on the page it still feels kind of bear to me, so it could end up with something else on it yet.
This photo is a photo I wnated to take myself but it is a bit hard to take the photo when I wanted my own hands in the photo, so I enlisted the help from my brother and told him where to stand and what I wanted exactly and how to use my camera and hey presto! I love what he ended up with. Another of the ever building mountains of photo that I just have to scrap because I love the photo.Here is a little more detailed photo.

Well I'm off I want to give a few other challenges a go seen as I don't get to do them very often. My help my mojo come back a bit too.
Thanks for stopping by and for all of your comments.
Until next time take care.

This month's Sketch Challenge at Ideal Papercraft.

This month I got to set the sketch challenge over at Ideal Papercraft (formerly known as The Scrapbook Establishment) I decided that I wanted to do a sketch to use up all of the excess of scrap pieces of paper that we all have left over after every layout that we do. For this whole page I have only used scraps I didn't once use a new sheet of 12x12 patterened paper (apart from the cardstock of course!) This the sketch I came up with..... And here is my example..........................
I also used lots of the left overs of embellishments I have everywhere, I kind of saw it as a recycling page, to use up some of my mountains of leftovers I have.
Here are some more detailed photos for you.... The doilies I have recycled from old vintage doilies I have collected same as the doilie trim at the bottom of the photo.

Well thanks for stopping by and thanks for all of your comments I love to read them so keep them coming. I do have some other scrapping stuff I have done but at the moment I am unable to share them.
Well until next time Take Care.

Who likes a giveaway????

I have decided to open up an Etsy store, so I have been busy the past few days sewing these up. So to celebrate this I am going to be giving one of these beauties away to one of my lucky blog readers.I will give you the details of how you could win one of these later on in the week once I have them all made so you will have to stay tuned.(It won't be hard!)
What do you think of them so far? I personally want to keep one of each for myself. Have only done up a few different ones for the moment, just to see how they sell. If they are successful then of course I will make up some new ones. I have decided that I am only going to be making a few of each combo, that way they will be even more unquie.
In this first photo the 2 on the bottom left aren't quite finished just yet they need their flowers and buttons attached to them, but I put them in the photo so you all got the idea of the colours I have done so far.

This next photo are of the other combos I have made, I just have to finish sewing them up and adding the pretties onto them and they will be ready to sell . But once again it is to give you an idea of the combos that will be for sale.Ok and finally I will share one of the pages I have been promising, the other 2 still haven't been photographed yet. This page is another kit for Fancy That Scrapbooking

it will be avaiable very soon in store, so hurry in as there is only limited numbers.
Well that is for me at the minute. Will try to take some photos of those other 2 pages to share. And don't forget to keep tuned to see how you can own one of my very own handmade camera strap covers.

Until next time Take Care.xx

Who loves this as much as do?????

I decided to get creative yesterday and make myself a camera strap cover, and now I'm in love and want to make all diffent ones now. I am considering starting an Etsy store and making them to sell what do you think??? I would LOVE some feedback from you all. I would probably be charging around $10 - $20 mark for them depending on what is on them, what colours would you like to see?? I think my next one is going to bright and maybe some embroidery, the possibilities are endless.
Well thanks for looking at my blog and I would really LOVE some feedback on this it would be greatly appreciated.
Will be back later on with those pages I said I had to share, as long as I photograph them today that is!
Well until next time take care!
PS. That wasn't my big news either, I still can't reveal that just yet! Still a little more to organise for that!

scrappy stuff to share

This card is for the april cybercrop going on over at Ideal Papercraft
I have set the card challenge if you are interested in giving it ago head on over there.
These next 3 pages I have used Pink Paislee Cupid papers I have now done 4 pages from that range, I fell in love with it so much that I wanted to keep using it until it was all gone. I only have a few scraps left to make a card or two with. This photo was taken in hospital the day Cooper came home. A photo that I just had to scrap like many many more to come.
These photos were taken the day before I had Cooper, actually an hour before DH took me to the hospital infact. My last photo as a mummy of one.
This is a Kaisercraft Memo board that I bought last year and have finally gotten around to making, I have used the Kaisercraft Peachy Keen papers on it. I don't overly enjoy doing off the page projects but I am happy with the end result and now I have somewhere to hang my keys up too. Sorry about the reflection it was overcast so I had to use the flash.

Well i will probably be back to share another 2 or 3 pages in the next day or two. I could have some other exciting news by then too, if not you will just have to wait until it is all organised properly.
Well thanks for stopping by my blog and thanks for all your comments I love to read everyones comments and love to see where everyone is from.
Until next time Take Care.
