Aren't they totally Cute!

still on with the show..... what have i  been creating...well besides a
I got the Scrap the Boys layout finished!
With the theme "Collections"
i instantly thought of Ash's Slowly Growing collections of Lego that he just LOVES!
so into the lego i go!

Just love the look
of consintration on Ash's Face when he gets into creation mode with his lego..
totally magic!
I used some Cosmic Crieckt "Get HAppy" collection and some of my twine and one of those cute buttons!

Lockie enjoying he most fav delight....

Then i have been getting busy with Scrap Therapy Challenges !

ONe was a colour challenge, i picked to work with the brown/yellow/black/white

I thought i would journal about before Justin and the kids....well
lets juswt say the only things i could think of that i missed were the sleep ins....

Using the October Afternoon Papers and some more twine...i think i'm getting addicted to this

but i might miss the last couple of episodes of true Blood season 3! my partner
is just into
But i can say i have past my learner's theroy! YEAH! now i'm booking in for my first driving lesson
i feel a little shame that its taken me this long to gt the courage
to get in and do it, but now it's come to a point it's just effecting my career chances
so off to driving school!

I must admit i have pulled a couple of layouts challenge out of god only knows

i also want to do a few more challenge at scrap thearpy but i'm thinking thats going to be taken up with my last of my June Sale goodies!
OMG! seriously loven the fabric buttons i have made this month as well as the super cute Fimo!
also waiting on some of my own designed chippie, but i think that might turn up late June or July..
oh also getting into dying some cute little crochet hearts...yes thats right Mel!
Hope hope hope i get all these up on the blog on June the 1st!
seriously an array of colours and textures!
Also lining up a speacil someone to play with some eye candy for us :)

So what challenge did i get done this week
well i had to give Handmade by Suzanne monthy sketch a go!

but i dived in my sassafrass papers and let them shine there lovely colours for me :)
As you can see  have used some more of Chantels yummy
mini dolies! you can find them here @ Creative bits

I also wanted to get a Scrap jack challenge done, OMG!
seriously love this challenge blog!
if i had more time i would totally do more jacks!
but this month i jacked Mels layout!
i so love the design and the layers!
how lovely is mels layout! totally a heart melter!

i picked a couple of photos of my boys doing what they do best....being silly together :)

  here a few of the lovely buttons i've been creating for June Sale!
on so sweet! and some more of Chantels delish dolies!

Next i was taken by the inspiration from Stuff to Scrap
totally amazing blog filled with a very talented DT! seriouly! i'm always
finding inspiration from this blog! totally amazing!
the theme for the challenge is "Mother" plus some chippie
now i thought of the lovley photo i had taken of my mum just recently...
with some October afternoons papers and some of chip chop shop pink trim and creative bits
doiles and my own fabric button and yellow glitter threads, as well as the word
mum is out of chippie letters :)
i came up with this colour fest!

how sweet are these bunny buttons!
totally heart melting!
as well as my it reads
There is something magical about the word "Mum",
to me I instantly feel warmth caring and a hint of a smile.ONly after becoming a mum
myself i could understand how and why one word could be so powerful.
This is one photo that i believe captures a small glimps of love i see in my mum,
with her crystal blue eyes and warm smile always
open for an embracing Hug. Through this woman i learned wrong from wright,
love and laughter is the best medican.
i love her :)

then i ran out of space! i wrote the journaling around the page to become a boarder :)
i'm so happy with how bright and beautiful this layout turned out :)
and i had a good reason to use the pink! :)

Well with all this said and done, i better get a wriggle on and help with the dinner and the dishes
no play unless the work is done....unless you sneek
not always an option when the kids seem to beable to smell you out?!

well chickie babes i hope your week has been fun filled and you all have a ripper of a 
weekend! oh i hoping to get done to the swap meet at Mum's Bees Knees!
all sorts of crafty creative ladies will be there!
hoping to get me self a stall next month :) cross my finger :)

with the Eye Candy Sale on and all of you surpising me with want
your buying i really re thinking what to create for June!
and i'm telling you i'm excited!
but that a side i had to have a little scrappen time,
so armed with my own eye candy and the
delish dolies from Chantelle Creative bits and a dash of Leeannas Chip chop shop
i created some magic from us W.A. chickie babes Handmade creations!
seriously love these goodies!
totally like candy!

I really wanted to try out the Bird is the word challenge word  "Forever"
as my very dear Blogging Friend Rachel Funnel is a DT member,

so theme Word from Bird is the word is "FOREVER"
So the title is "Forever Dream"

the Blue and Pink glitter threads are on sale in a pack with two other
yummo threads.

As you can see my own Handmade felt button, crochet blue flower
and orange thread all on sale here
the Birdies on a pin will be on sale in June

a pattern from Addicted to Decorating!
and i loved the design so much i just had to have a go!
with my Nephew Zanders 1st birthday i thought this would be perfect!

  I Also thought i would make a beaine too!
i thought i would call the teddie "Cuddles"
