I thought I'd better get a post in for August before it is no more. August has been like no other August usually is for me, much warmer for starters more like spring weather, of which I'm most happy, Spring is my favourite time of the year. Its also been a busy one for me too. I started out the month with a lot of scrapping much of which I'll have to share in two posts here, I've also been working in my new transferred hours in daylight, not night shift anymore, great having the nights at home with my girls and weekends with my family- I have a life!!! Which is just as well because my life is full!!!!
I haven't been on the net much lately as I'm spending a bit of time with my Mother in-law who is staying with us recovering from a major operation. the company has been great and I'm sure the girls are banking up a bit of nanna time that we've missed since moving away from our former town. Plus Nanna has had the chance to chat with her other granddaughter Emily on the web while she's in England!
As I said earlier in the month I was on a roll with my scrapping and did quite a few layouts for both Piggy Tales and some for my grandson's baby album. Here goes.....
Best Friends- (one for our yearly family album)
same photos for Logan's baby album
Your Aunty Courtney
Party at the Gym
1st Time at the Movies
and some for Piggy Tales.....
A Day In The Park- (I used inspiration from some Becky Fleck sketches for these two)
Recently I have been a featured Designer for the Piggy Tales blog which is great!
Also I have a feature in the recent Scrapbook Memories magazine Vol 11 No. 6 for the Kaisercraft special . I made a special mini acrylic album featuring "Just the Girls" (including us older girls) in our family. I added in some chipboard extra pages and covered them with the Playtime papers. The album was embellished by paper daisies, gems, droplets, ribbon, acrylic paint and felt trim.
My album has also been selected as the featured project for advertising the magazine. Check it out here- http://www.scrapbookingmemories.com.au/current_issue.php

Being that I've made a girlie album I thought I'd also make a boysie one too using Bo Bunny papers, cardstock stickers and matching cardstock!
Me and My Dad - mini album
So its true I have been busy, sort of makes up for my quietness for the rest of the month, but besides the fact that I'm having issues with my hands (RSI syndrome) and I'm awaiting an operation within these next two months. it will be great to get a good nights sleep and back to doing things without the constant pain. Well enough of the whinging and onto another post shortly featuring my gorgeous Em and her milestone of 21 years!!!!
Take care, Love and God bless
