A graduation, a birthday and lots of scrapping!

Christmas preparations have begun over at Scrapz Biz! The DT girls have all come up with some quick & easy Christmas projects and each day for 12 days a new project goes up...and for each challenge that you enter you get a ticket in the draw for some great prizes! Just click HERE to check out all the details.

Today is day 4 of the comp and my challenge is for you to scrap a Christmas Wish List. Here are my two samples...

I still have to scrap another layout with Ayden's wish list too. :)

I've already had a go at the Day 1 challenge set by Melleny. This little box was so quick and easy to make...and very cute!
I've got a couple of other things to share as well. These are from last week's Scrapz Giving challenges...
The first is a layout using Pink Paislee Amber Road range of papers. The colours were a lot darker than what I'm used to working with...
I made this quick card using my new Hero Arts Cloud background stamp...
It was a big day here on Friday! Riley had his Kindy graduation...(Wow this year has flown by!!!!) They sang songs and put on a little Christmas play. It was the cutest thing! Well....the other kids did anyway...Riley struggles so much with anything that puts him in the spotlight so it was decided the day before that he sit with me and watch. He really DIDN'T want to do it...would burst into tears in their practice sessions. It was such a shame that he wouldn't join in...but he was happy to watch. I hope his confidence grows once he goes to Prep next year.... he is proudly displaying his graduation certificate and the beautiful book presented to him by his lovely teachers...

Friday was also Paul's birthday! He had to work all day and missed Riley's graduation...but we ended up going out for dinner to celebrate and had a lovely time. We had the cake once we got home...Well I think this post has gone on long enough! LOL Hope you're all getting your Christmas shopping done and getting ready to put up the tree! Only 26 days to go...Christmas Day will be here in no time!
Thanks for dropping by! Hope you're enjoying your Sunday.
