Heh, heh, I think I love party blowers as much as the kids do!
He had a cool day, loves his pressies...thanks Gran and Pop, Nana and Grandad and Aunty C and Uncle Mafoo! Tool kits, dump trucks, trucks and trailer, big machines dvds, remote control car...harmonica and books...man he was happy as!! And the big bro's are enjoying sharing the love too lol!
This cake was a light bulb moment a couple of days before his birthday as Patrick (my right hand man birthday organiser) and I were racking our brains trying to think of a cool (Patrick) but easy (Mum) cake to make him....he loved it and he also loved us singing happy birthday...the next day I heard him singing a little tune under his breath and then puffing out his breath and wondered what he was doing until I realized...he was re-enacting singing and blowing out his candles from last night...cute!!
Oh, and here are the seed trays the boys planted up a few weekends back, just bursting out, they are so proud and check their trays every day for progress...might get those peas and beans in a garden patch this weekend.
and on to things scrappy...this one is my current contribution for the latest NZdare... the dare is to only use scraps to make your layout, so anything half used etc...lots of fun and so quick to do!! Just delve into your box of leftover scraps and start building a layout!
and this was last weeks challenge...a no photo layout and I chose to scrap why I love the Desiderata....

And I couldn't let a blog post go by without a layout or two to pretty things up heh, heh! They are both of my lovely Patrick....I think the next one of him should be of him in one of his grumps though cause when he does grump he GRUMPS!! lol!...This one was for Vicky G's cardstock/rubons/stickers/pen only challenge at SBO and the next one is for the new Jack Me Up that went up last night....check it out HERE , Christi's layout is just beautiful and was so much fun to jack with all those lovely layers to inspire! Thanks also to Hannah, our wonderful guest designer who created a fabulous layout and had to keep it top secret from her friend Christi for a good week!
And with that I am going to bed too....guess who is asleep already now!!!

No news as such just showing off more layouts lol!
Thought the grandparents might like this one of their little pirates rrrawrr me hearties! My first 6x12 layout, so darn quick to make which is always a bonus and handy when you havn't got much to journal...its for Rach's challenge at SBO....shh don't tell the boys I used some of their pirate stickers hee hee!
And this one was for the 1st challenge at SE which was to make your own embellishments...so I've been seeing some cute mushroom paper on US sites (its heidi grace I think) and it inspired me to make some wee mushies for my layout....plus I made the 'Elsie' style buttons. I have just spent some time looking at all the wonderful layouts created for this competition, wowsers everybody did so goood with this challenge, neat to see so many taking part and having fun with this!

there is also Scrapbook Essentials Ultimate Challenge contest happening at the moment, just love this mojo woman in her headscarf it cracks me up! I just get this mental image of scrappers all around the country making layouts with sleeves rolled up in their headscarfs!
Something else to get the inspiration going is the US Scrapjacked team jacking the Effer dare girls this month.
Speaking of jacking Raewyn has just announced this months Jack Me Up winner....and the new one will be up next week.....sorry to keep you hanging on but good things come to those who wait heh, heh...its not easy hijacking layouts you know....cue Mission Impossible music with Tom Cruise hanging over those red laser lights....Neen looks great in her cat burgler suit too I gotta say!
Scrapbook Outlet had another fun crop last night and some of the challenge deadlines are not until next week so there is still time to join in.
Well that should just about keep me busy this week I reckon!
We are heading off for a Sunday tiki tour today...pack a picnic, find a beach, blow out a few cobwebs and fill our clothes (and fur) full of sand lol! will add some pics later...
Edited to add: something tells me i spent too long updating the blog rofl! Joseph came to inform me that he thinks I need to come and arrest Samuel!!
