Love this picture of Taylor as a beautiful bald baby in his first paddling pool that had a big whale in the middle of it (can't believe 10 years have slipped by so quickly)Another photo scrapped for the Aussie 2008 album.....usually struggle with anything yellow (don't I Margo!!) but when you are faced with a large bright yellow cartoon character what can you do!!!!

Scrapbookoutlet NZ was running a wonderful competition over on their website http://www.scrapbookoutletnz.co.nz/ called the "Very Sweet SBO Xmas Comp" - had to be in. We are now into week 3 so I thought I'd share with you some of the bits and pieces I have submitted.
Week 1 was to create an advent calendar....I have been keen to have a go at creating one using a metal cookie sheet....so after trawling through my stash to find all my Xmas bits & pieces this is what I came up with .
The finished item - Taylor loves it (hope this will become a heirloom xmas piece that will be passed down to his children)....worked on the back of the sheet, so the magnets can stored on the inside until they are brought out day by day.....
Week 2 was creating a set of 3 cards....I really struggle with cards so kept is simple using the same patterned papers for all 3 just changing up the style.
Week 3 was a layout containing a Wish List for Xmas...so pulled out a favourite Xmas photo of my boys from last Xmas and got Taylor to write his list for this year.....short and sweet he only wants one thing - one of the new Lego remote controlled train sets (fortunate really as we may have to mortgage the house to buy this one item...they are pricey).
Love this picture of my boys.....we have a tradition of wearing Xmas hats on Xmas day and we pull out our hat collection and add some new ones each year....last year Taylor was a Xmas pudding and Dad was a reindeer.
So pop on over to SBO if you get a chance and have a look at all the amazing work the talented ladies over there are creating....lots of fun and inspiration to be found.

Here is my layout created for the event....great to be playing with some pink for a change.
This layout was lots of fun to do....love the fun photo that we had taken at our recent Girls Scrap weekend away and oodles of Fiskars pink to indulge in with a hint of my favourite accent colour - black!!
The new monthly challenge has just been added to the Fiskars blog - you have until the end of November to get your work uploaded....so go on over and see what fun they have in store...as always a great prize from Fiskars to be won.

I hope we didn't scare the locals too much with trying to get some "interesting" photos taken down at the beach (well we are Scrapbookers!!) - Margo found this log and thought we should try to act like cowgirls on a bucking broncho!!!!...not sure if that is how the people walking that day saw it or not!!!
A canvas for a change....for some reason blogger has decided to turn it on its side and I can't fix it.....grrr....
Loved the mix of the green & blue patterned papers in the kit....

This is an old 2005 photo of Taylor with a bear he and his Gran had just made (on the right).....I thought about this photo when I saw the wee quotes in the July kit and this particular quote
Taylor and his great mate and cousin Michael having a great laugh together
My favourite photo of Taylor as a baby asleep in his cot so "Dream Little Angel" seemed like a great title for this page!!!
Great quote about friendship....so used a photo of my scrap buddies at a weekend away.
Finally....I'll leave you with some work I've recently done for Fiskars for the August challenge which was using paint...
