Zesty moodboard from Jot

It FINALLY feels like summer is on its way... we had a gorgeous spring day so we took the girls down to a local beach. Bliss. And the colours in Jot's zesty moodboard this month were just perfect for these photos! <3 <3

New Sketch for Sketches in Thyme PL Style

I'm really loving the new 'Love Always' range from Cocoa Vanilla Studio....And because I only do Project Life these days..I find that papers last me longer... a 3x4 piece here and there, a 4x6 in another place...really makes the paper go the distance. Perfect! This page below I have put together for the new sketch up at Sketches in Thyme Project Life Style. Pop over and see what the other Mavens have done with this sketch too! xx

New Love for simple pages

My mum and I did a HUGE order of scrapbook goodies from America and amongst those goodies I got a Becky Higgins Project Life kit, Modern Edition. OMgoodness.. WOW! Amazing cards, and so versatile. Heres two pages I whipped up in a matter of minutes..sometimes I get too wrapped up in a world of embellishments (slight addiction of mine!)..but I actually really like these pages. Some simple, so fast, and so pretty! I'm now on a mission to catch up on my PL... and I think this is the perfect solution <3 <3

Further inspired by Scrap the Girls

I really love working with blues...but don't do it often..the result of having two very 'pink' girls. So here's another page I did inspired by this months moodboard at Scrap the Girls.

Scrap the Girls

Love this challenge blog.. Scrap the Girls..love that they alternate between sketches and moodboards! While moodboards suit me somewhat better being a PL'er...I occasionally try a sketch. This month though...a devine moodboard!! Thanks for the inspo Scrap the Girls!! xx

I LOVE yellow!!

Yellow, yellow, yellow..I LOVE yellow! I played around with this page to include the other colours in Jots July Moodboard but I kept coming back and changing it to all yellow. Such a warm fun colour!! And even better when its cold and rainy outside, working with pictures from a sunny day and then adding LOTS of yellow = lots of warm fuzzies <3 <3

Jot's Monthly Mood Board

Always the best inspiration..Jot's Monthly Mood Board Challenge.. I've felt a bit 'blocked' with where to start with my PL pages...feeling way behind and have had a lot going on which has left me further behind.. hours spent browsing the 'Houzz' App getting design ideas for our new house, and hours upon hours of cleaning our current house thats on the market. Whoever said trying to sell a house with two toddlers was a good idea was soooo wrong! haha.. Its the mad rush to get the place tidy for people to come look through which chews up ALL my scrapping time..how rude! lol! But its not forever and I'm very thankful for everything in my life... SO.. I managed to sneak in a few minutes and jumped straight onto Jot's blog to find their current mood board..which I always love. Here is my creation.. thanks again for getting me going Jot ladies!!

Art love...

Both our girls love their art...they love drawing and painting. I love watching their art evolve as they grow. Madi as a young toddler couldn't even stand a drop of paint on her fingers, now she wants to paint her entire hand!! We have STACKS of art work...I can't bring myself to 'thin' the pile so every bit that comes home from kindy is kept as is the bits created at home. I love to include some of it into the PL albums as it is all part of the story. This art work below was done on gold tissue paper- so cute! We got given a huge pile of it.. what a perfect 'canvas'...
