hush little baby...

Recently we were lucky to spend a beautiful week at Daydream Island. We spent all day on the go so each night the boys were pretty tired. I wanted to document this cute story of my youngest falling asleep at dinner several times on the island! A story to remember for sure!
Those pops of gold from the Heidi Swapp Gold Foil Pl kit were perfect for my photos!

Time Flies...

I made this double  pocket page late last year and I am just getting around to sharing it now.
I have used a combo of Heidi Swapp September Skies and the Project Life Gold Foil Value to  create my page.
My project celebrates my youngest son graduating from his first year at school.

I used my typewriter to add journaling to one of the 4x6 filler cards.

He was so proud walking down the star lined carpet!

I added into the little booklet a picture drawn by him.

Thanks for stopping by!

the album!

I am so happy and pleased with my Count Down 2 Christmas album with Pink Paislee I finished last night. My Merry and Bright album is bursting with our lead up to Christmas Day memories. I decided to create an "event" album as apposed to a daily album which fitted our schedule better.

My opening page an 8x8 photo of my boys.

Our first visit from our Elf on the shelf, he came with a Hello  note from the Heidi Swapp Favorite Things Project Life kit.

Decorating the tree. The glitter pieces in the Merry and Bright ephemera pack are so much fun!

I love using a pop of yellow to make my album suit our Aussie Summer!

I created a pocket using one of the clear pages and some pattern paper for my boys letters to Santa!

Card writing for their school friends.

Their photo with Santa, I loved combining more of the Heidi Swapp Project Life cards into my album.

My favourite photo from seeing the local Christmas lights enlarged to 8x8.

Hidden journaling!

I used the  Heidi Swapp 6x6 Confetti stencil and some embossing powder to create my night Sky then  inked over the top!

Love including my boys drawings in my album.

Another 8x8 photo . I used my typewriter to add the journaling to my photo then added the
Glitter Words too.

We watched the Grinch movie snuggled in our beds at the hotel room.

A vellum pocket stitched to my  4x4 piece of pattern paper holds the golden train ticket.

I added a QR code of the magical light display on our town hall that I videoed on my phone.

Christmas Craft.

Snowflake making!

A fun annual Christmas party with friends,

I added the 8x8 piece of pattern paper to the back of the clear page to hide the adhesive from the 8x8 photo.

The following  two pages were the ones I created for the Pink Paislee blog. More details here!

The boys made some super cool snow globes one day! ( With Lego and Dinosaurs of course)

More fun memories with a party at our house with special friends.

The boys email messages from Santa! Note the fingers crossed *wink*

Each year we like to give back in a small way by giving to the wishing tree. I combined it with the freebie downloadable Heidi shared here.

Oh dear!!!

The boys favourite Christmas Eve tradition, to sprinkle reindeer food on the front lawn!

And my husband and my favourite treat- watching Love Actually, its a tradition!

The big day filled with lots of beautiful memories.

I ran the kraft tag through my vintage typewriter to add the journaling to the back of the tag.

....and my whole album. I love it!

I hope you and your family had a beautiful Christmas!
