More 'Magic Happens' Layouts...

So here's a couple more layouts that I got finished last weekend. These ones are pretty simple compared to that extreme flowery one that I posted on here the other day, but I guess some photos only call for a simple layout, right?


I have had this photo sitting in my photo stash for AGES, and I've always wanted to scrap it, but wasn't sure how to go about it. Well, these papers seemed to go perfectly with the colours of the crab claws (gross), so I've finally been able to get this page done! Emily loves to collect bits and pieces at the beach, especially crab claws. She also gets very excited every time we find a dead fish, and she was over the moon the time we found a turtle shell, and bits of bone. Weird kid, huh? Who needs pretty shells when you can pick up bits of dead animals?! She sure is quirky. Here's a little close up of the A2Z Scraplets starfish, and some more of those yummy Kaisercraft flowers...


And here's my next layout, for Em's school album...


And a little close up...


The handmade embellies, and the crochet trim are from Purple Pumpkin, of course :)

I have finished another layout using this range, but I can only show you a sneak for now...


And just 'cause I haven't for a while, here are some pics of my little rascals...


I took these the other day, after we got home from swimming lessons, so Em was looking extra scruffy (and adorable:)) Every afternoon the kids hang out on their playgym. I'm sooo glad I decided to get them that for Christmas, just wish I'd got it when we first moved in. At least the novelty of it hasn't worn off yet! I love this photo I got of Emma, she's such a good little poser for me :) Jack, on the other hand, had to be bribed with a sip of my pepsi-max before letting me get a photo of him. Grrrr....drives me nuts that he hates having his photo taken. And I have no idea what that hand thing is that he's doing! What the?


Well, I s'pose I should go, and think about getting those kids into bed. They are sitting at their table at the moment making books. Jack is making another joke book, and Em is making a recipe book. So cute! I love listening to their conversations too, when they think I can't hear. I just heard Jack tell Em that he is going to look up the word "fart" in the dictionary tomorrow. Nice!

Ok, I'm really going this time. Hope you had a great day! Thanks for stopping by :)

HI Sam, loving these lovely layouts, love what you are doing with that paper range, I seriously must get some! LOVE the pretty PP embellishments, think I need them too!

How sweet to hear about Jack and Em and their book making and conversations, lol at looking up the dictionary for "that" word - sounds oh so familiar (but my kids would google it ha ha!)

Hope you are having a great week!
