I think that the title about says it all - I am a Mum of 4 and I definately live in a Madhouse!!
Life is hectic, time is scarce, chores are a plenty, the demands of the taxi mum are never ending, sleep is deprived and laughter and love has no boundaries (mixed with alot of noise). Oh,I almost forgot.....Scrapbooking! My niche in life when time permits. Its what keeps me sane!
Here are this months Rusty Pickle projects. As you can see I have used the White Christmas line for my sons birthday - just goes to show that any theme of papers can be used for NON traditional themes.
With this layout, I wanted to use a girly theme, as the photo is of my eldest son who is 13 holding his baby cousin - I wanted the layout to show the softer side of him.
I love this next layout as it's bright and colourful using my very own "Popstar" and "Candyland" Papers.
Whilst checking out these Rusty Pickle layouts why not duck across to Scrapping outback and check out this months RP challenge....HERE.
Wow......what can I say.....the chipboard highschool over at Scrapping Outback is going really well - the girls are all doing an amazing job. We have 34 students participating in the 7 week course, so the gallery over there looks fantastic. They seem to be enjoying the classes so far and I can't wait to see what else they come up with. Week one layouts have be voted on.....and the chosen favourites move into the finals for the major prize . If you would like to check out the chosen layouts so far - check them out here.
I have been busy getting layouts done using the gorgeous new papers from "My Little Shoebox" I loooooooooooove these papers!!!!!
This layout was so much fun to do - I really love the new Autumn Leaves title stamps....
Morgan is such a character - even doodling on his own photo!!
Ok, thats all for today, I am sooooo tired and need to go to sleep...
This months collections are filled with rich earthy tones...can't wait to play with them.
Also, just letting you know that unfortunately this will be my last month designing for Kaisercraft - they are calling for a new Design Team so I am being put out to pasture.....sniff...sniff!!!
On a lighter note Scrapping outback is running their 4 product challenge at the moment - this is such a cool challenge as every project is so different, even when only using 4 products. Here is this months kit.....
