This layout was for Kirsti's quote challenge. We had to scrap one of our favourite quotes and this one fitted my 14 year old son Jake so well. Such a difficult age for everybody!!!!
The quote reads "It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are" ~ E.E. Cummings
This layout was for Nat's challenge to use die-cuts, the colour blue, flowers and chipboard alphabet or embellishments. Bit of a crooked photo this one, but you get the idea....LOL

For Kath's sketch challenge on Tuesday I created this layout of my two youngest boys, in a rare moment of stillness.....lol. Photo was taken on New Years Eve at the Opera House.
Wednesday was the day for Kirsti's Quote/Title challenge and it was a ripper! Scrap what makes you happy. I looked a little further than the normal kids, husband, celebrations, etc., etc. I looked for a simple everyday thing that made me happy. Here is the layout I came up with!
My random challenge on Thursday was dedicated to my enjoyment of the Olympics. Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, oi, oi, oi. It was a colour challenge so the project had to be one of the following colour combinations:
Green & Gold
Red, White & Blue

Nat's challenge on Monday was a brilliant one. Lots of ribbon, stamping/inking, 1-3 photos, chipboard alphabet or embellishments. I decided to try making ribbon flowers for this layout. Problem was I was trying to do it while pacing the floor with the phone glued to my ear while my sister was in labour! Good recipe for frustration...LOL.
Another awesome sketch from Kath on Tuesday, so I used a photo of my spunky 8 year old son Brady. Being his normal, happy, loving self. For this layout I tried a technique fairly new to me called Stitch 'n' Rip and the beautiful SEI Poppy range of pp's & buttons.
My Thursday Random challenge was brads and eyelets, the more the merrier. I managed to use a total of 92 brads & eyelets and dared everyone to use more!!!
