Photo challenge catch up

These are the photos I took for the next part of the challenge..."Shoes"-these are my new boots for winter..they are sooo nice! The teacup collection my Nan gave me are my "Favourites". I also received the "Buttons" jars from Nan-they are original and very old. The "Nature" photo is from the dam at Emerald. With a new grandson on the scene I've been busy taking photos of him & other photos have been neglected! David, my hubby turns 50 at the end of the week so I should have some good photos of his party next week! Lots more to scrapbook too!

Layout challenge 10 &11

Layout 10 uses the EK Success chain punch along the top & the bottom of the page. I distressed & inked the edges of the paper pieces. I also used the notepaper edge punch and a lacy punch around the red mat piece. On layout 11 I used ready made chipboard embellishments, stickers & paper flowers for a quick & easy layout. I distressed & inked the edges of the front patterned sheet 7 then mounted the whole layout onto a plain sheet as a backing with the edges showing through.

New Grandson

Here is a picture of my newest grandson, Cooper. Isn't he just gorgeous..not that I am biased or anything. I took this photo for the photo challenge as well under the theme of "dreams/goals" because I hope that all our family will have goals to achieve and dreams to aim for. I went for a couple of classes at the Printblocks "Creative Block" trade event. It was a lot of fun and very inspirational. I didn't have a chance to do the make & takes (too busy talking & shopping!) but soaked up the ideas & beautiful displays they had there from the visiting companies. Graphic 45 was absolutely gorgeous and I just love all their stuff. At the EK Success class I made a shadow box, some invitations with Vogue Papers and had a play with Maya mist in the Maya class(photos to follow at some stage) Dave & I have been going away in our camper on the long weekends we have had lately so I haven't had a lot of time to scrap but the relaxation has been great! We caught red claw yabbies at Borumba Dam near Imbil last weekend. The weekend before I took some lovely beach photos at Cotton Tree near Maroochydore on the Sunshine Coast. Here is another photo for the challenge entitled "Nature". I'm preparing for the Greenbank Scrapbook Shop Demo Day this Saturday with show & tell about my favourite products-more on that later!
