Free and Easy....

Well this month is FREE choice at Scrapmatts and no themes for the DT. So i decided to use up alot of old Scrapmatts and ones which only had 1 in packets! So a creating i did and you know what - i could of created more and more. But isn't it strange how you have your favourites, and i have quite a few scrapmatts that i love to use all the time.

This layout is based on the latest sketch over at STUCK.

I have based this layout on this months Sketch challenge over at Scrapbook Savvy. I just love the leaf sprays- they are just perfect for those outdoor or nature layouts.

As i said i had lots of bits and pieces left over. Now these are great for cards. You know i'm not a great fan of cards but i had a go...

And as you can see i used the frame from my Scrapmatts - i don't like to waste...LOL

Hectic Life.....

Does life ever slow down??? We have been so busy. First we had our Festival parade and fireworks followed by Milson Island trip for Emma and Andrew and finally netball in Tumut and Canberra. Warning Photo Heavy
This was the first time the girls have marched in the town band for the Festival. they did really well considering they only had 1 marching practice.
and madam went down with her school- all the kids were so bright and colourful.
This year, Bridget has decided to have a go at netball with her friends. She hated Fun Net cause it was too boring. We'll see if she sticks to it!!
And Emma was selected in the Under 11 Development Squad for Tumut. So we had to travel to Canberra for her first carnival. Well it was the coldest miserable day in Canberra. The fog didn't lift until 1pm and then the wind howled. In other words we froze...
And the Milson Island trip....
we are still getting plenty of stories....
