Six of Six - Yay I made it!!!

More hubby pics, the bottom one with two of his three sisters and his Dad and the top one, such a cute pic, I have no idea what he was up to, but whatever it was, he was prepared.

Five of six

Sorry for the tardiness of this post, Christine prompted me for falling behind on my promise. Here are some B & W photos of my husband as a child. His Mum gave them to me many years ago and I am only just getting around to scrapping them. I have gone for a more clean and simple look as the photos are small and I didn't want to overwhelm them.

Four of six - Easter Egg Hunt

The search is on, with Holly locating the "loot" on the back of the car
This blur was me capturing the bun fight that ensued when the girls realised there was still an egg somewhere in the doona (duvet) cover.

It's not just birds who leave eggs in trees, so does the Easter bunny.

The girls with their cache of eggs, Holly looks like the cat who got the cream! For Lauren most of the fun was in the hunt, she only kept a few eggs for herself and gave the rest to Holly. Kevin mucked up one of the clues by coming across the eggs I had hidden in his shed and eating them before the girls could find them!!

Three of six

Here are some of the little Easter pressies I made for friends, a simple milk carton box template was used and I added a tiled roof (with the aid of a scallop border punch) and gable ends.

Two of six

Sorry about the wonky photography..again! I love this paper, so elegant.
The first one is very old friend I made in year one, on her wedding day, the next, Lauren posing in a new hat and matching gloves thinking she was the bees knees, and last me with my Dad. Sadly he passed away in 1999 and not a day goes by where I don't think about him. Nicknamed Uncle Chuckles by a family friend because of his ability to find so much in life amusing, his passing has left a big hole in our lives.

Welcome new follower

Just a short post to say Hi to my new follower Sandie (are you a card maker, scrapper or both?), having reached the heady heights of four followers I am feeling very flattered. I am sure you have all seen those blogs with hundreds of followers, but I prefer quality of quantity (ha ha, who am I kidding, oh to be a blogging celebrity).Welcome to my little part of cyberspace.

One of six - Just for you Christine

Here are the last of my Basic Grey Origins layouts. I still have paper left though, so you never know!
When out with friends last night I foolishly mentioned that having not blogged for so long I would upload six in quick succession, hence the title. I had a great time, stamping (not much) chatting ( a lot) and eating (more than I should have)...yes you have guessed it - chocolate goodies. We had a new addition to our regular little band, Christine's son Ethan, who is a delight. He quietly got on with his own cardmaking and the inking of his own arms - very attractive, and then gave us a little show and tell of all the cards he had made over the last few days, what a prolific little creative talent he is. That boy and his charm will go far.

Don't faint - it's a new post!!

Two cards for you today, both made solely with Paper Trey ink stamps and coloured with copics.
I thought it was about time I put something else up!!
Kevin is feeling a lot better now, although sleeping is still a big problem, he just can't get in a position where it doesn't hurt. He is still too sore to return to work just yet. Lauren managed to fall off her bike too, during the recent wet weather on a tram track in Melbourne. Huge bruise on her leg and hurt her knee so badly she was unable to walk without pain for a week, so came home to be nursed and fed. She is also much better now and back at Uni.
I have organised an egg hunt for this weekend - Lauren's request (how old is she?) with written clues just to add to the fun (again Lauren's request). Pictures will appear later.
Have a great Easter.
