July Picture a Day

Over at Bons we had a challenge to take a picture for each day of July. I didn't get one for each day but this is the selection of some of the photos taken in July!

And Heres Another One

This layout was created using Bons July Girl Kit! I glimmer misted white cardstock with sea glass and rose tea then stamped the hibiscus flowers. I sewed the circle around the photo using double zigzag on my machine. All the extra bits, stickers, rubons, tranparencies and the gorgeous butterfly are from Bons shop - with the exception of the 'queen for a day' sticker which was from a kit from Scrapbooking from Scratch.
The photo is of my gorgeous niece Kimberly all dressed up ready for her year 12 ball. My sister took the photo in her beautiful garden!!
I love the way this turned out, I was trying to capture a real autumn feel about the page and I feel that I have succeeded :)

Today I Scrapped!!

This page is created using Bons July Boy Kit...there was one rule with this one, we were not allowed to use the ugly dog side of the BG paper but I thought it was sooo cute I had to use it :)

The photo is of my son Jaryd doing his favourite thing - tormenting the dog!! "Jaryd put her down" are frequent words in this house when he comes to visit :)

I love this layout, the rubons and the distressing and the crazy sewing down the side, it really looks fabulous IRL!!

Big Life Update No. 2

Well I have been continuing my quest for internal happiness and contentment. That has lead me to taking on a 4 week massage course to complement my aromatherapy studies. This weekend will be my final class and I have to say it has been an amazing journey..not because of the massage (which I have not received but have been giving) but because of the interesting people I have met through this course. It never ceases to amaze me all the different types of people that make up the world and it is a part of this wonderful life that interests me to a large degree. Through this course I have been thinking about my next journey and I am trying to make a decision on further study, perhaps a university course in psychology or at the very least something in the health science field!! Need to do some serious thinking on this one!!

Ian & Jaryd's Birthday

These photos were taken July 10th as we celebrated Ians 50th and Jaryds 21st Birthday at Marlston Hill Chinese!!

My Garden

A few months ago I spent a bit of time working on my garden. This is the result, now it is a lovely place to be!! Still have a bit of work to do but at least there is some colour now :)
