Wet weather - means more layouts

Last weekend we finally got some much awaited rain. Unfortunately it has now stopped but its so amazing to watch how fast things begin to green up even a little. please lordy lord send us some more... Can't say I don't appreciate the sunshine at the moment though...

Anyway a little rain means a more scrapping time and so i was able to get a few more old photos scrapped that have been sitting around. These are back to the old style scrapping that soooooo many of my albums are in so they certainly won't look out of place. Yes they are a little on the plain side compared to others done in the past and not much added extras, but hey I actually scrapped 6 pages and was totally stoked. And lets face it if I only scrap one photo per page forever i will never ever finish putting the photos I want in albums away and trust me, they are piling up - so multiple photos were added and added and added.

i love both these two new paper ranges from Kaiser as they are sooooo fun and bright and can be adapted to a number of occassions. The first three I have just use a few background bits from the fun fair range and as it's got the gorgeous little animals that the children visited at the zoo, Little Ellie actually stood and helped cut the animals out for me which was kinda cute. She then proceed to tell me where i should also put them. You see there is no scrapping in this house without the kids regardless how much i try - its gotta be with them or when they are in bed.

These next ones are with the Mama Bushka range which is proving to be very popular. YOu gotta love these cute little doll cut outs - that are just begging to be added to your pages. Again I had so many photos that I wanted to use - so i did.

And another with an old photo i found lying around - can't believe Jess is only 3 1/2 in this photo - kids grow up so fast don't they - she looks so much older than that. Back to paper layering ths time, a little bit more my style of late - again still minus the added extras. Just love these papes though as there are so many things that can be cut out and added to create extra interest.
