WRMK Anthologie Layout

 Well, we're into our 3rd week of school holidays, and I'm officially going stir crazy! I really hope the weather improves a bit, as it is just too cold and miserable to go out at the moment. Good scrapping weather though, and I have been scrapping up a storm with lots of Kaisercraft products. None that I can share just yet though! But I can share this layout that I did for Sassy Scrappers...

 Aren't those papers and embellishments just gorgeous? Would you like to create this layout yourself? Instructions for this page are up on the Sassy Scrappers blog HERE if you'd like to go check it out :) :)

So, we're supposed to be heading to the zoo tomorrow, but the rain is pouring down, and it looks like it'll be another home day. Not that the kids are complaining. They are loving the sleep ins and just chilling at home, and there's been a whole lot of this going on...

This is the kids play room, and they've been having fun building cubbies! Unfortunately their play room is right in the middle of our open plan house, so I can't close the doors on the mess. (Their play room used to be in the garage, but I took that over as my scrapping room, so I guess I can't really complain :))

So as well as scrapping and hanging out with Jack and Em, I've been getting ready for the next Purple Pumpkin sale. Are you on facebook? I'd love it if you became a fan on the Purple Pumpkin facebook page. There are lots of fun little giveaways happening at the moment, with our big birthday sale at the end of the month. Hope to see you there! :) :)

Just An Ordinary Day

Well, school holidays are in full swing around here! The kids have 3 weeks off, and this is their second week at home. Let's just say that my patience is wearing a bit thin! Because it's been so cold, we have been cooped up in the house a little more than usual, and my favourite boredom buster - the beach - is just way too chilly to be any fun at the moment. When a friend of ours suggested a trip to our local little theme park, we jumped at the chance!

Aussie World is only a 35 minute or so trip from our house, and the kids just love this place! All the rides are really close together, so the kids can run from ride to ride without me worrying about them getting lost. It's so easy to keep an eye on them, and they think they are being independent and doing their own thing :) I only wish this place offered annual passes, then we'd probably be there every weekend!

We've got a trip to the zoo planned for next week, and hopefully a couple of trips to the movies  too, so that should keep the little rascals happy. Em has been busy crafting so much, that I'm running out of things for her to do. She keeps eyeing up all my design team goodies, and I think I might have to hide them!

With the Purple Pumpkin sale taking up a lot of my time last week, I haven't had a chance to get a lot of scrapping done, but I do have this layout to share that was featured on the Sassy Scrappers Blog...

'Just An Ordinary Day'

Products Used - WRMK Anthologie papers and embellishments, available at Sassy Scrapper HERE.

That would have to be one of my FAVOURITE photos of the kids. And it's so typical of one of our 'Ordinary Days', scruffy kids, covered in sand after a play at the beach :) As much as I love the snuggliness (is that a word?) of winter, I really do miss our lazy summer afternoons at the beach. I especially miss how it burnt off lots of cranky kid energy too!

Hope you've had a great week!
