I HEART Heather

Over at the BOXX this month it was my turn to be challenged by doing an uplift - not that its a challenge really because there are so many wonderful layouts to easily get inspired by

I chose to do 2 layouts by the wonderfully talented HEATHER JACOB - I just love her work, I dont know what it is about it that I love but i just know that i love it.

Here are the 2 layouts of Heather's that are my absolute favourites -

Aren't they just gorgeous?

And here is the first layout I did that was inspired by her -

And some closeups -

Bunting made from LILYBEE designs new christmas range that can be purchased from the BOXX and also twine from the CHIP CHOP SHOP

Some stamping (not real good mind you) and some other bits and pieces

How divine is this flower? Its from MANOR HOUSE Creations that can also be purchased from the BOXX

And this is my 2nd layout -

This is my LITTLE Lochie who is not so little anymore on his first christmas - he is graduating Yr7 next week......eekkk off to High School next year.

Some SCRAPMATTS yumminess -

How cute is this teddy? It was a little christmas gift given to me by the awesome BECKY LYNCH from SCRAP THAT SONG

And last but not least I decided to make a few simple christmas cards out of some of my leftovers -

Are you all christmassed out yet? Such a happy stressful time of year. Speaking of which if i dont get here for some reason I would like to wish all my blog friends a verry merry christmas and an awesome 2012. Thanks for your kind words and support all year.

Way back in June I attended the Scrapbooking expo in Brisbane with Leanne Jago, Michelle Ryder and my Ma Jo.

We stayed in Brisvegas on the Saturday night at a hotel that was not too far from the convention centre so everything was walking distance which was really convenient.

The expo itself was a little bit disappointing this year because there was not as much to waste your money on like previous years ( which my bank balance thanked me for )

One big drawback of the weekend was the fact that I was dog sick ( It was probably punishment for spending time at the expo rather than with my husband - it was our wedding anniversary weekend ), apparently we had this really awesome dinner at the Satay Hut in Southbank but I was so sick that I could not even taste that :(

One big bonus of the weekend was that we got to do a class with the amazing Lou Nelson

The right side of the double -

My gorgeous girls and the gorgeous cluster of embellies -

Some of the yummy Imaginarium Chippies -

It was a great class and i got a lot out of it - it is amazing how something so simple can look like a million dollars

Stuart and Katie

Everyone loves a good wedding.........right? Stuart was one of Adam's groomsmen when we got married and now 10 years later we helped him celebrate his big day. We got to spend the weekend together in the Hunter Valley NSW and it was just amazing to get away together because that is something that is few and far between
Some Closies - Bit a somethin in the corner
The flower I made with my cuttlebug -
And finally some Scrapmatts yumminess
