I've scrapped!

I've been neglecting my poor little blog for a while now. A lot going on in our household at the moment. DS will be starting Uni for the first time next Monday. :) Great excitement but a lot of preperation.
I did manage to get two layouts done over the weekend. The first one is for Handmade by Suzanne using the Kaisercraft 'Seaside' collection. I just love the colours in this range and the chippies that come with this range are devine. I thought these papers were perfect for this pic of my DD during taken on her fist surfing lesson about 3 years ago. All the products used are available at Handmade by Suzanne.
A close up of the printed chipboard and canvas tag.Some more chippie goodness.
The next one is for one of the monthly challenges at Scrapbooking Top 50. Its a sketch challenge set by Vicki and we had to include at least one heart. The pic is of DS taken last year. Lol! I thought it might be nice for his kids to be able to look at this one day and see how technology has changed. :) I've used MME 'Alpahabet Soup' pattern papers and various October Afternoon and Basic Grey mini alpha stickers for my journalling. All products available here.The little black mobile phone was cut on my Silhouette machine.
Thats all for today. I'm hoping to be back soon with more scrappy stuff to share. Have a great week.
Until next time.

Great to see some creations from you!! :) Loving the papers in the first LO! They certainly are perfect for that awesome photo!! Loving the subject matter of the second! Great to have it documented especially with all the current technology named! I did a LO last week of DD texting. I wondered what she will think years down the road looking back on this. Wonder what the technology will be at that point??? I can't even keep up now!! ;) Have a great week and good luck to your son at university! Very exciting!!

I loved that beach one over in the gallery and I must say this phone one is very striking, the crispness and simplicicty really makes it stand out!!!!

Love your beachy LO. The papers are great aren't they and love your distressed edges.
Love your idea behind the technology LO. It will be soooo different for them one day and for their kids to see what their parents once used. I saw an old typewriter in a movie the other night and it was just like the one I had. Remember having to use liquid paper, waiting for it to dry then typing over it....now we just press backspace and job done.

Totally understand when the house has heaps going on, I only have one child and so much to do (clean up) lol. I love both layouts but what a great idea taking a photo for the kids to look back on and see the tech changes....I feel like an old fogey and if I had taken a photo of my first analogue mobile I am sure they would laugh.

Love your LO's Marelize. The Kaiser papers look fab & go perfectly with your pic. Great subject for your masculine LO.. might have to use that theme as my son is addicted to new gadgets!! Fantastic pic! :)

What a great idea! And I love the Beach/Surf layout- and how convienient to have the surf board be in a co-ordinating colour! Lovely xoxo
