Where did January go?

Good morning.  Well the summer has been awesome.  Way easier having a 3 1/2 and a 6 year old than a 2 1/2 and 5 year old.  Lots of happy pretend play between the boys. We still had our moments but was good on the whole.  Did our usual 1 week in Golden Bay and visited the usual fav places- cafes and the like.  Lots of summer memories to scrap. 
Arrived home to a new deck that was built by my father in law.  LOVING the space.  Great having meals outside and Gav and I have a drink (me non-alchoholic!) after the kids are in bed most nights.  Fills up my quality time tank!
Also did 2 weeks of swimming lessons with Mr 6, which has seen a huge increase in his confidence and yesterday he decided to go for it with his over arm strokes.  We were thrilled as he has come such a long way over the last month. 
I seem to have a bit of creative energy at the moment.  Possibly cos I haven't properly started back at work yet.  Have lots of things on my wishlist.  I said to a friend yesterday that maybe I shouldn't buy any more paper until I've used up my stash.  Realistic?  Let's face it, probably not. LOL.  Thinking about a subscription to the crazy Monday kits.  Have finished the bulk of Dec Daily but am out of steam/ inspiration for the chipboard album cover.  Don't want lumpy bumpy as it will go in the bookshelf with the others.  **Ideas ladies?**
Love this LO that we made in a workshop with Lyn Jordan.

A project for Scrap Box NZ.  Most of the products can be purchased over there.

Lastly a charity kit that I bought blind from Scrappin Patch.  It took me over a year to complete!  The style/ colours aren't exactly to my taste, but hey it's another page done.  Made a few changes from the original design too.

Have a good week peeps xo


  1. Good to hear you were able to get away for a week. Love that the boys are at an age where they can keep themselves busy without too much Mum help. Fab layouts Sally.

  2. Awesome layouts Sal. Looking forward to seeing something of your DD too?? LOL. Have you sussed out covers on Pinterest? I went for gesso, stamps and glimmermist on my Brave Girls cover as didn't want lumpy bumpy either. Its been a great summer thats for sure. :)
