A winter day in Palmy

I know I say this alot but I do like this photo of Tira.  Brings back a good memory. It was winter and, as normal in Palmy, it was a coolest day but the boys still wanted to get the water slide out.  So they did after about an hour of sliding down the hill in very soapy water it was time to warm up with a cup of Milo.  This is Tira waiting for someone to offer to make it for him. 
Yep, stencilling again.  Don't worry it shouldn't take to long for me to move on to another technic.

Sweet layout

The boys with their great grandmother.  They were about 2 months old and she was about 96 years old at the time.  

Lots of lovely Prima flowers and yes I stencilled again with modelling paste
( I just love the stuff)

Memories can be relived with the help from a layout

I truly find scrapbooking the most relaxing thing I can do after a day at work
 (it does also makes looking thru a photo album a little more interesting) 
here is a layout from the weekend at scrap camp. 

 This photo brings back memories.  Tira would sit in the window and watch cars go by and as they did he would call out the colour.  
red, red, black, green, blue, blue etc,  you get the picture.  So cute, he would have a drink and a plate of sandwiches and sit these for ages, much to my amasement.

Scrap camp Waipukurau

Yep,  another scrap camp has past and yet again another great weekend away with a great group of scrappers.  Many thanks to Steph and Jean from 'Scrap 2 the max' for planning the event.   

I managed to get a few layouts completed and here are a couple: 

As you will see I am a little hooked on stenciling at the moment so most of the layouts I did have some but in saying that the following one without any stencilling. 

 In this one I used two different stencils 
And this layout I have entered into the 'Scrap the boys' blog October challenge.  I used Bo bunny paper which I stencilled with 2 different stecils, one to give the cracked effect at the top and the fern looking stencil on the bottom corner. 

The following one I just love the photo of Gregor and Arahi.  I used a Nic Howard Engraver kit.
There are several more layouts that I will blog over that next few days and I even managed to start the teachers end of year gifts:

Prep for Waipuk scrap camp this weekend

Can't wait, only 3 more days and we will be on our way.   I have made up a few kits in preparation for camp, including the one below.  

Myself, Sarah and Michelle did manage to get a photo of us at a recent get-together and I am making up kits for us to finally put the photo in layout during the camp.  Here at the examples the girls had to select from. 

a little more work in this one as there is stensiling to complete.
