Anna's Products and my step by step

I was soooo lucky to be sent the NEW October Afternoon Range 'Report Card'.
I love the bright primary colorus and the classic vintage feel
If you want to have a look at the step-by-step or to purchase the papers head over to Anna's
This is a photo of me dear friend Lynn's little girl, as my children are not in school yet, and I really want to use these papers for their intended theme.

Creations from the weekend...all very orange!

This one is for the first round of the Christmas Competitions Fa La La La La at Enchanted Scrapbooks. We had to use the carol " All I want for Christmas" as inspiration.
Criteria was 2 photos without smiles, and all I want in the title

This layout is my take on the Nov 1st STUCK?! sketch

And this last layout is for the sketch at Scrapbook Savvy.
This is the cutest layout journalling I have done for a while. It is about a conversation I had with my smarty pants 4yo Charlie. He is such a cutie at time...despite being a total ratbag
Close-up of the journalling and my new "little bit of Whimsey" purchase (birdie)

Hope you all have a lovely Monday and start to the week. I am off to Melbourne tonight til Wednesday for a Neonatal Conference and some shopping. Hope I cope without the internet.
