Back to Nature

Morning everyone,
Well it's HUMP DAY as they say, middle of the week and two days to go before the weekend! Something to look forward too...LOL
As our school holidays start at the end of this week the boys and I have been tossing over a few ideas about one day trips over the next two weeks.
Providing it doesn't rain we'll be doing a couple of bush walks in our local area just for something different. My boys love the bush and have a ball 'getting back to nature'.

Here's a selection of stunning layouts sent in by some very talented scrappers of their boys enjoying the outdoors and getting in touch with Mother Nature.

Beautiful baby boys

Hey all,
Hope you all had an awesome weekend and are ready for the week ahead!!
One more week of school here and my guys have two weeks holidays which I'm really looking forward to. Apart from the 'day outings' we do, it's a chance for me to get some photo opportunities in which, of course, means more scrapping for me!!

Speaking of which, for all you busy girls out there that don't have time to go scrap shopping as often as you'd like...I have some great news for you!!
Fireside Crafts is a fabulous, relatively new scrapbooking site based on kit format sales, that will save you heaps of time in shopping and, even better than that...MONEY!!
Their 'Kit of the Month' at the moment is called 'Twice Burnt' and let me tell you is AWESOME!!

This entire kit is selling for $59-95 which is fantastic value!! There is also an accessories kit which co-ordinates perfectly with the Twice Burnt kit priced at $35-.
Great value..a whole kit of stylishly new product that will keep everyone scrapping for a whole month until the next kit is released!!

Today I ran into an old friend with a brand new baby!
Of course, I had a nurse of this teeny, tiny bundle of joy and it brought back so many memories of when my children were all so small and new.
No..I'm happy to didn't make me clucky..LOL...but it's certainly inspired me enough to share with you some gorgeous, teeny tiny baby layouts!!

Starting with this aptly named, stunning layout of this teeny tiny baby, sent in by Natalie Hearn:

Mates, Pals and Buddies

Good afternoon everyone!
Hope you're all well.

My youngest son has recently been nagging me to death about going to his mates house for a sleep over, which would be his first time away from home so of course, I'm very reluctant to let him go. He is 9yrs old but a very clingy, 'Mummys boy' sort of kid who won't even go to parties unless I'm there!!
So I can imagine what he'd be like staying over at a friends house!! He is adamant that he'll be alright but I'm not so sure...LOL
These boys are constantly on the phone to each other after school. I can't understand what two 9yr olds would have to talk about after spending the whole day with other!!
My Jack is such a 'Dorrie Evans' though and could talk underwater with a mouth full of marbles so I'm sure he still has plenty to say!!

We all need friends and boys...big or small...need their mates!

Have a look at this gorgeous selection of layouts of boys and their pals:

I love this LO sent in by Wendy Gaskin of these two little guys just looking happy in each others company:

Wendy also sent in this LO of cousins playing. Theres no better friend than a cousin:

Lisa Balm submitted these two great layouts:
