Halloween fun and some stuff to share

This is the first year the boys have really been interested in halloween, so we took them out Trick or Treating(to family and friends) and they had a ball.
Bailey dressed up as Harry Potter and Declan as a pirate. Here's some pics.

We got heaps of lollies ready for sat night and we didn't have anyone come at all. So we have all these lollies left. I sent the boys with some to give out at school today.
The boys are studying mini beasts at school ATM so Bailey needed to make a mini beast for a homework task so we made these spider bags on the weekend. They are so cute.
We made some spider cupcakes and little chocolate ones too. So much fun and very yummy.

Well, I have been trying to finish off all my odd bits and pieces lately. So here are some pics of a mini album I did at the AP retreat in May. I have been looking for ribbons for it, but still haven't found any that sit right. So I thought I would just take photos as it is.

So The SCRAP YOUR PANTS OFF comp at AP is up to week 3 and I have announced my challenge. I'll share once I have finished my sample layout.
The gallery is looking awesome, full of fantastic layouts.
We are also having mini challenges. Mine is to create a TREAT bag for any occasion, the only TRICK is it has to have an animal on it. My sample is the speckled spider bag above.

This card is from the mini challenge week2. A card using inchies. I have rolled my inchies.

The boys and I made this pen holder for their dad for fathers day. Cute hey!
So I was pretty excited the other day I got my first magazine from my SM subscription in the mail. Then I was extra excited when I opened up to this page.
I am so happy with how it came up. I just LOVE it.

Anyway that's it for now, I should have a few layouts to share soon.
See ya

Well the competition is underway now and the gallery is filling with gorgeous entires for week 1. Challenge 2 has gone up it is a pretty cool one, based on a comic strip. I can't wait to have a go at it.

Jodies challenge for week 1 was to include something old something new something borrowed something blue(there were a few extra catches too).
I had so much fun doing my layout, not the best photo but here it is.

My old is a photo corner, buttons word strips and scraps of Hambly.
New is Sassafras lass papers.
I borrowed from a layout by Kerry Snell and my blue was my monster, photo corner and buttons.
I did these next 4 layouts using a new ribbon pack coming to the shop soon at ArtyPants. I also used some dotted swiss bazzill(my favourite thing to use ATM), sassafras lass papers, buttons and American Craft alphas supplied by ArtyPants.
I still had some ribbon left over too. Look out for the packs in the shop soon.
This is a layout I did just for the fun of it. I love these photos of the boys from a recent dress up day at school.

That's all I have for now.
Thanks for looking
See ya

I have done a heap of scrapping this weekend. For the AP cybercrop and also finishing off some DT stuff. I can't share all of it yet.

These are my cybercrop layouts
Bec set a challenge to choose an ad and do a layout drawing inspiration from it. Here is my ad and layout. I love this ad. Might have to use it again I think.

Kerry A had a challenge to scraplift one of her gorgeous layouts and also use song lyrics. Here's what I came up with.
Kerry S set a recipe challenge. You had to use 4 different pp's, a flower, a heart, a rub-on, ribbon and a photo with at least subjects in it. Here's my layout.

Quick update.

I have a few layouts to update and a heap of photos to share.

At ARTYPANTS the paper of the month for September is the Little yellow bicycle Zac's life Bullseye Red. It is available in the shop now. Here is a layout I have created using it.

The AP cybercrop was on the weekend. These are the layouts I did.
This is my sample layout for a Spring themed challenge with spring or sprung in the title or journalling and handmade spring embelies.
I did this layout for Kerry's challenge. It was an inspiration challenge using a gorgeous pic from Pumpkin Patch. My inspiration was the colours, flowers and polka dots in the pic. You also had to use something old from your stash, I used this BG pp.
I did this layout for Jodies quote challenge. You also had to use non scrappy products. I used dotty mesh and woodgrain contact.
Jodie had a sketch challenge too. I hope to finish it at a crop tomorrow. Half way through I decided to try it as a double.
Oh well that's it for scrapping ATM. I am in the middle of a few things, so I'll share them next time.

Got a few photos to share from the last few months
Firstly Declan's 6th birthday. We took a friend to Taco Bill for Dinner they had a ball.

Bailey's 8th birthday. He took a friend to the Pancake parlour for lunch it was great. Check out this cake. It's a chock pancake cake. It was SOO yum.

Some dress ups. For book week Decky wore Bais Mr bump which was easy for me. Bailey dressed up as Harry Poter.
And the boys have been studying olden days this term. We went on an excursion to Coal creek it was fantastic. Yesterday they had an olden days dress up and activity day, it was fun.
Bailey had his first real piece of homework this week. We had to make a mega machine. He made a Rocket Rod out of boxes and lids etc. Declan had to get in on the action too.

Well that was as bit longer than I expected.
Back soon with some more scrapping.
Thanks for looking
