One of my all time favourites - Family House, Beyond the Page (Kaiser of course!) - with a picture of each of us through the windows. This has been around a while, I think mid 2008 - from the pictures. I still love looking at the photos. Next, Mini accordian album, from a fun photo shoot we did ourselves at Tannum Sands. It looks lovely either way, my boys have always enjoyed having a play with it. I also made similar ones for gifts, handy being small, easy to do and fun! Finally - 9 Drawer desk organiser - it is so useful for lots of bits! and pretty too!!

Fun Party Album for a friends 10 Years in the UK!! I used Ruby Rock-it Vintedge collection. I love finding country themed papers. Have you seen the lovely "Great Southern Land" collection our recently from Kaisercraft? Delish - got big plans for that, got to get cracking on it. I really enjoy making these as gifts, easy to personalise and look lovely displayed on a bookshelf somewhere.
Paris - February 2011 I loved this family trip to EuroDisney and Paris! Lachlan was a bit apprehensive about the whole Eiffel Tower thing. But Lach then loved the whole experience, he loved the view, took photos and went Ice Skating on the first level near the restaurants - so cool! So that is one major achievement!
Had fun finally doing these photos of Noah and Josh from Kingscote Mad Science Day! What a blast. Everyone dressed up and got to do all sorts of experiments and eat science food - green noodles etc. I used Kaisercrafts K-Bots range, an oldie that i have a huge stash of - luckily as i love to use it! The grey Bazzil was painted by Josh about 2 1/2 years ago,I had been keeping it for the right page - glad i did! Best thing about scrapbook paper - there is no best before date - so eventually I will find a use for all my stash!! Thats my story anyway.

I did this for Jeffs big 4-0 last November, it was the second 40 in this paper, I really like the masculine finish of this range - its an old collection - I think it was Superhero and sadly no longer available. On this wet grey day I am finishing some old and new projects, just waiting for the glue to dry to sand off and embellish ! Will put up pics tomorrow. I am trying to find pictures of albums etc that I have made and gifted - so if any friends and family who have received one could take a photo of it for me and either email or Facebook it, that would be much appreciated!

These came up a treat for mothers day presents for a friend last year. Quick to complete, very rewarding and look so different just by using different paper collections! I plan on doing some for Christmas presents as they lie flat to pack in by suitcase for the trip back to Australia, and not too heavy.
