Great feeling...

I am really loving and enjoying my scrapping at the moment !! The last few nights, although I haven't had heaps of time, I have going into my scrap room and just going for it! I find I have been keeping my favourite supplies sitting close by and I have been even pulling out some old stuff to use! I have a pile of papers ( a real mix!) and Im just using whatever I see first!!! I'm loving the process!

I can share this one with you today but you will have to wait for the others!!
This is for the challenge over at "White with 1". The challenge is to use;
                                 Lime Green and Buttons
Here is my layout and then iIwant to share a story about this lady!
I don't normally get all soppy on my blog but I really want you to read this......

I think most scrappers would know or have heard of this lady.......Marelle Jackman.
I titled my layout "Angel on earth" because she really is. She is the most beautiful, caring, generous person I know. She is a lady who goes out of her way to help people in ways unimagineable. She will send gifts to people she has met once because she sees they really need it or want it and out of the blue that gift will arrive on someone's doorstep.. She is a lady who raises money for people who are in need or are suffering. She is a lady who cares deeply for her family and friends. She is a lady who is grateful and humble and expects nothing in return. She is a lady I admire deeply and love even more. I have tears in my eyes now! But if you read this Marelle know are loved and appreciated and truely one of gods angels. xxxxx

The best 3 days.....

Hi! I have just spent the best three days with some beautiful, inspirational people!
It all started last  Wednesday when the beautiful Marelle Jackman bought her two gorgeous girls Mia and Ella to stay! WoW! My children just gelled with these girls ! They played and laughed and cuddled for three days!
We spent Wednesday chatting and scrapping while my AMAZING hubby took children to playgrounds, swimming, walking, buying ice name it he did it with them!
Thursday was much the same except we spent some time with two more amazing people Sophie and Jo Koschman! Sophie and her family were visiting the area and she also made the journey from Horsham to join in my class which was scheduled for Friday night! you must check out Soph's blog! One very talented teenager!!!
On Thursday night we took the kids down to the beach carnival...they had the best time!!! I will share pics soon!!! we also received a message while we were there that Charm and her mum Bronnie were going to come and scrap and join in my class!!! Woohoo!!! We were so excited!!!!

Friday morning Marelle, Sophie and myself took all four children to the botanical gardens for a photo shoot!!!
Heres just a couple ...I havent edited them all yet!!!

So friday night was awesome. We were joined by Leah Cameron and her sister Jodie and I taught the girls the two layouts. Amongst the laughter and chatter we got them both done! They all did an amazing job!
The girls were using the January kit from Polly Scrap kits!
So I guess I had better share some layouts!!!
Both these are "just cause" layouts!!!The first one I used a wall decal from "TYPO" and of course a gorgeous heavenly heart from Charms Creations!!!

And this one....I love the Lil Red rocket button!!
I then at about midnight started this layout and just yesterday had a chance to finish it! Once again I used a "heavenly heart" by Charm! ( i have a new addiction!!!)
                                                    Thanks Sherry for the title idea!!!!
So since then I have rediscovered my mojo so I tackled a few challenges! The first of course is the latest challenge at "Show us your stuff". This months challenge is to incorporate this Oprah quote....
                                   "Cheers to another chance 
          for us to get it right...."  
So here is my layout...I went totally grungey on this!!! I took this photo one night of all four of us recently!! Pretty cool hey!!!
So I have been busy!!! I thought to myself i would get some challenges done......
So I headed to the Stuck! site and created this layout based on this sketch!! Now as always I have used some creative license!!!!!
I love these photos of Maya and her little cousin Lila!! Maya was just sitting there reading to her one evening and I snapped these!!! SO adorable!!! Once again I have used October Afternoon sidewalks range!!! love it!

Then I decided to have a go at the "Scrap the boys challenge". This month the challenge is to scrap photos of things your son, hubby etc like doing over summer! Well Will got this new Penny board for christmas and this summer has been practising to ride it!!! So perfect choice for this challenge!!!
                                      (sorry not the clearest of pics ??? oops .....oh well!!)
 I have used a cute little button from "lil Red rocket" and another "Charms creation lollipop!".
So while I was on a roll I decided to do the "Scrap the Girls" challenge  which was a monochromatic layout!!! But silly me got all excited and added this photo instead of a girlie pic!!!! Oh well...still love the way it turned out! And I love this photo!
                                                       Can you see my addiction!!!????
                           So well done if you got through all of that!!!!! Thanks for popping by!!!
                                                                       Eb xx
