A few random Layouts

First one for Lasting Memories - a Celebration -I haven't gone the birthday route but more a gloating celebration of younger brother over older brother - love this photo of Henry - no holding back!
I think this is one of my fav lo's ever - it came together so well. Very messy as always.

I have been posting some Lo's over on The Lilypad Gallery and I thought maybe I should share them here as well. This was for a template challenge -




Ands another template challenge, this time for Sahlin Studio's. Don't you love the background paper? And the good news is, if you are a follower of Krista on Facebook or get her newsletter, most of the stuff shown on this Lo is free! man I love that! Esp when it is so good...


This is Meaghan before she frocked up for her year10 formal. After she described what she wanted, I had pictures of bad 80's style hair but it turned out really well. Took as long to dry her hair as it did to style it!

And lastly one from a few weeks ago for Digi dares -



And now for more important things - The Closing Ceremony.

I have to say it was hard to get into The Olympics this year because all the finals were on at between 3-6AM - not that enthusiastic to get up in the middle of a cold Canberra night to watch Australia get silver in whatever event they were in. We recorded a few events - Sally Pearson winning her gold and Anna Meares in the cycling (yay) but mostly we were left  with snippets. But we did all sit down last night to watch the closing ceremony.

 Loved The Spice Girls - there I've said it. Have been singing their songs all morning.


 Although Posh always seems to be either keeping her distance or kept out by the others - not the best body language...
 
 Also The Who and Madness were fab. Did not like the Fashion parade in the middle of it all - just hit all the wrong notes. Snarling anorexics in the middle of happy healthy athletes was a bit jarring and they took far to long to walk up there runways. No flow, just a bit awkward.

And where was the Queen? They kept acknowledging her but the top royal they could roll out was Harry (he is the best royal though) seemed a bit odd.

The rest was all good fun - we figured the only way Rio had to go for the next Olympics was to have the skimpiest costumes of all time - could be an eye opener...

Ok off to pack more boxes, getting very good at chucking stuff out. Only two weeks until we move now - very excited.

Back tomorrow with the latest Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge - still heaps of time to play along with our current Pets challenge.

Was wondering what you'd been up to...into....tossing...boxes!!! Fun???!!!!! LOVE these - can I have a fave? I have! It's the top one - the photo rocks, that wood bg rocks, the messiness underneath is FAB & those stars....might do that NOT digitally sometime. Looks perfect:):):)
Oh, & the pop of blue is inspired.
Waxed lyrical enough. You'll get a big head & then it won't fit in a box & you'll have to toss it!!! JOKING:):):) Sorry. Weird sense of humor...... I'm going now.....
