Time for a catch up!!

Ok… well… it’s way past time to catch up!!

Since getting engaged time has seemed to by even quicker… plus we’ve had several birthdays over the past couple of months so there’s been lots happening.

Now that the first term is done I’ve finally managed to catch up on some things and I’ve got lots to share :)

During Term 1 the senior school did a big focus on ‘Courage, Sacrifice and Comradeship’ which the kids really got into.  As part of the topic we did a trip to Waiouru Army Museum and one of the activities was to ride in one of the M548 vehicles…. it was bumpy, dusty, bone shaking and FUN!!  I took my camera with me to capture all our activities and then did this layout:double blog

Tautu and I have a favourite little spot in Rotorua… Okere Falls.  It’s absolutely stunning and special… in fact we’ve decided that we’d quite like to have our wedding ceremony there.  I took my camera with me (of course) and got lots of shots and here’s the resulting layout:Okere Falls blog

Stepping back in time a bit now… I’ve done several layouts for retreats and classes that I haven’t shared yet so I’ll show you the first few now :)

This layout involves a bit of maths to work out the background but it’s SOOOO worth it!  Each piece of white cardstock has been put through a different embossing folder to create lots of interest and it really is stunning in real life:Samantha layout blog

Next up is a layout featuring a photo of my youngest sister with two of her gorgeous girls (the third daughter is the baby in the bucket LOL)… I had lots of fun creating this one:Fun with Mum blog

And the last layout for today features Miss Mikayla at the beach.  Even though she’s 16 there are moments when she transports me back to when she was just a small girl… and this is one of those times!!Big kid blog

I’ve still got loads more layouts to share so stay tuned :)

Happy scrapping everyone xxx
