Smash Book update

Just a hello to anyone who has been visiting me because of the Smash Book challenge... I have a couple more pages to keep you inspired! Also have you seen Issue 7 of the Etzcetera Magazine? It is jam packed with lifestyle and craft articles and a Smash Book special and picnic food article written by me :)... Kim and the girls never disappoint. Grab yours now!

The first is a cover page for my Smash book... I have been holding off on doing the cover page because it is the first that you see in the book (obviously). It kinda has some sort of stigma and mystery around the first page in a book. A lot of art journalers have said the same thing.

Annnnyway... here it is:

I like it :) I may add more bits to it as time goes on.

I also have a picture of Lilly and Tobey riding up and down our street. Taken just before their birthdays and on their old smaller bikes. I cant believe how good they are on their bikes, for a while I thought they might be on training wheels forever!

Working on a birthday spread in a 6x8 Simple Stories album right now and have the itch to sew this quilt.

What are your plans for the weekend?

Dippin' Dots?

Have you heard of Dippin' Dots? If you live in the U.S. you probably have, but it is something totally new for me here in Australia. My family and I went to a festival a couple of weekends ago and we came across this delectable ice cream treat. Lilly especially loves these dots :)

Back in the swing of scrapbooking, I have also been playing with my Cameo. I love this Moroccan style background here:

My big girl turned 9 on the weekend... Can you believe that? Anyway I am having a go at a few pages in the Project Life style, for her birthday. I will be using a 6x8 Simple stories album. I will share when I have something I like :)
