Life's Journey

I just love the inspiration photo put up as the challenge this fortnight at Challenge Me Happy! Isnt it beautiful?!

Challenge 42

My inspiration came from the hand holding the balloon. As soon as I saw it I knew which photo I wanted to use. Em's wonderful workmates gave her a voucher for a photo session as a gift for her new baby. The photographer was Kirsty Pattison and in this layout I have used one of the many gorgeous photos she took.

Some close up details:

Enjoy the weekend!

Vacation Escape

Sometimes the only way to escape work and the phone, and get time together, is to go away to a quiet place. Jeff and Aimee really enjoyed their quiet weekend together at Hot Water Beach, Coromandel.
This will be one of their last weekends away on their own, as by the end of August they will be parents!
Which, means, of course, that I will have Grandy No 2!! Exciting!!

I used the sketch at Scrapfriends for this layout.

Anything Goes at CMH

Anything Goes at Challenge Me Happy #41!

So here goes...

I have been having fun playing with some of the new Spellbinder dies at Scottie Crafts. If you cut the middle out of the designs, they make gorgeous frames.

We have our son and partner living with us at the moment while they are building. One advantage is, not having to cook every night!! But, it is my turn tonight, so I'd better go rustle something up!

Weekend LO

Looking on the positive of this drought, a near empty water tank and dying garden, is the chance to spend lovely weekends outdoors. Last Saturday afternoon we went down the Mahurangi river with friends on their boat, parked up on the other side of Scotts Landing and had a pleasant wine and barbecue dinner. On the return trip the sunset was beautiful! A very pleasant afternoon!

The challenge at Once upon a.... Sketch, for March, is their sketch + 'Weekend'.
Frosted Designs  current challenge is to use Chevrons.

SGC - Banners

It has been a while since I entered a Southern Girls Challenge. I was on their first DT and they were such a great bunch of girls and have really good challenges suitable for scrappers or cardmakers.  This fortnights challenge is to use banners or pennants on your project. Check it out here.

These cute papers are from the new Fabscraps range at Scottie Crafts. The little doilies are Couture Creations mini and there are a few of the cool little wooden pieces from Prima.
 Have a great weekend!
Sue :)
