Ahoy Me Hearties

Recently we held our annual Bookweek Parade at school and I love to join in and dress up each year too. This year a few of us decided to go as pirates and I just had to scrap this photo of the event.

I just love that Julie Fei-Fan Balzer template I used with gesso in the background. Chels has them here in her shop along with many of the other new templates at a very reasonable price.
I made this layout for my CyberCropcolour challenge, all the details are here in the forum. Entries close at midnight tonight so there is still time to get your entries in. 
Thanks for dropping by, if you are in my part of the world hope you are enjoying this warmer weather, I love it!!

CSI - Special Investigator

I was so surprised, and very excited, when Debbi contacted me to see if I would like to be a Special Investigator for the month of September at CSI.

I love the Case Files the super talented Debbi puts togther each month and jumped at the chance to join in! If you haven't had a chance to try her challenges pop over and take a look at the current file Case File No. 38.

I've already created three layouts and have been so busy with the end of school term that I haven't had a chance to share any of them here. So here are my layouts so far for September.

Case File No. 36 This first one is a photo of my youngest and his gorgeous friend taken just before they headed out to dinner. I've glued an old Maya Road chipboard alphabet onto the background and covered the letters with gesso and tissue paper to fit in with the criteria for the challenge.

Case File No.37. I found these photos of my eldest son and one of his friends on my computer and just had to scrap them!

 This is the most recent one for Case File No. 38 with a close up shot of the journalling. Photo of my hubby taken at the National School Rugby championships last year where he coached the NSW side to victory for the fourth year in a row!
There is still plenty of time to get this one in....take a look, it is due 30th September.

Hope that you can find the time to come and visit and take look at the amazing layouts created by Debbi and her very talented group of ladies who make up the design Team.
Thanks for dropping by and leaving comments, they always make my day!
