Create...

It feels like it has been ages since I've been motivated to scrap! And in some respects it has been... But the mojo has crept back (slowly) and I'm very glad for that. Here's are a few, "little something's" that I have scrapped in the last few days...

I love these photos of Ethan purely enjoying nothing better than being able to create, and who among us cannot relate to that? Sometimes it is the simplest of things, like squeezing paint onto a blank piece of computer paper, that can get the juices flowing! And I actually like the touches of pink on this boyish page...


Journaling on this page tells of Tahlia's nerves about performing in her 2nd ballet recital but how very much she was looking forward to it at the same time... Just like a natural, she channelled that nervous energy into something really special on stage. I know I am bias, but Tahlia really did perform beautifully in front of a full house!

The Waitin' Game... is something that I have wanted to document for a long time. It's about the amount of time Ethan and I spent waiting at the school to pick the kids up, at 3 o'clock. Due to the appalling parking issues at our local school, we have to leave home at 2 o'clock just to get a safe (and legal) car park!!!! (We only live 5-7 minutes away, as the crow flies - not an easy walk unfortunately!) But what I wanted to record was the type of games and activities we do in the car while we wait.



Finally I have a decent photo of Liam without him looking cheesy in front of the camera! He was very willing to pose for me on this day...which I am quite grateful for! Some days none of the kids are willing to be my guinea pigs and I really don't understand why they would be like that!!! LOL!

This is a layout I'm not sure if I have shared before. I rarely scrap photos with me in them... but I am trying to do more. The story isn't complete I guess, if you don't feature in the pages yourself...

Thanks for looking...

Gorgeous Leanne!! Love the one of Tahlia, "Dancer", so so pretty - and OMG, what a cutie Ethan is! I had to scroll between him and Liam, gosh they look similar. Love all the red, striking color for boy's pages - and yes, the pink looks fab too, lol.

And "Daughter" is really so beautiful, love the scallops, the colors, the photo is so pretty :)
