Well despite the winter blues, I thought the yellow in this layout would warm any day :)  Using a sketch with courtesy of the Color Room I have created this layout featuring Casey with Tweety.  We bought annual passes last year to Movie World and her main priority was to have her photograph with Tweety - she succeeded.

Layout created for the sketch challenge at for their cybercrop which closes midnight 25/6.

You're never too little to hit the town!

I love these photos of Casey and her friends hitting the town to see the musical Wicked back in March.  They look so grown up all dressed up to the nines for their big day out.

More pages from my old photo albums

I'm stll trying to do at least one layout of me growing up for every layout I do of the kids.  Two of my latest were completed when I went away with the girls to Bribie for a scrappy weekend.  Here are my efforts.

A double from my days treading the boards with the Peninsula Theatre Company based at Narrabeen at the Old Gym.

Some fond memories of the people and the fun we had.

my darling little brother and the state of his bedroom just 24 hours home after a whole year away.

I hope you enjoy it.

Another Bricks N Mortar store closes :(

It was sad to hear over the weekend that my local scrapbook store - Crafty, will close it's doors in a month.  They started a large closing down sale yesterday with up to 75% off some products and were inundated with customers and thrilled with the support.

I wish Trish and Trevor all the best in their next venture which I'm sure will see them involved in the scrapping world just in a different guise. 

We look forward to dropping in next Monday between 10am and 2pm with a few NZ girls who will be over here for the papercraft expo.

Good luck!
