Scrapping and Pigtails.....

What's been going on at our place over the past week? Well, to tell the truth not a lot! I know... pretty boring huh... but I have been scrapping so at least I can share a few layouts with you!

I just love this cheeky little face! (It's amazing how much Madi has grown up since these pics were taken back in January...)
One of Madi and I... I've had these photos sitting around on my desk for months!
(Sorry! This layout has been
requested for publication...
Look out for it in an upcoming issue of
Scrapbooking Memories!)
And I've been really slack and only just scrapped photos from Father's Day last year. (We actually all had such a great day! My whole family got together for a picnic up at Mount Tamborine. It was so relaxed, the weather was gorgeous and the kids had a ball exploring! Somehow I managed to dodge the camera that day though because there wasn't one pic of me there!)
(Here's a pic of the tab from up in the top right hand corner since it got cut off the scan...)
One of Riley's fave things to do is play on the computer... In fact at 9am on the dot every day that's where you'll find him! At only 3 1/2 years old I'm amazed at how well he can navigate around the computer when he can't even read!? (I'm still deciding on whether I like this layout or not... it's a bit full on and didn't quite turn out how I'd pictured it...

And finally, here are a couple of pages I did for The Scrapyard...

Madi in her cute little tutu that Mum gave her for Christmas...

And the boys feeding the ducks around the corner from our place...

(Sorry... this layout has been removed for publication.

Look out for it in upcoming

issue 62 of Scrapbook Creations!)

Has anyone else been lucky enough to pick up one of these yet?

Woohoo!! Thanks to the heads-up from Leanne and Sandra (thankyou so much girls!!) I'm having a ball playing with my new Fiskars Threading Water Punch!!! (I ordered mine from Scrapbook 'n' Bits.) Apparently they're as rare as hens teeth...very hard to find one anywhere at the moment so I think I was very lucky to get my hands on one so quickly. No more fiddling around hand cutting those little scallops... yay!

Before I go I just had to share these pics of Madi with her first real pigtails! I can now finally get all her hair up into pigtails and she looks so cute!

So that's it from me today... Thanks so much for dropping by!!
