Latest projects....

A layout for a "Get Real" challenge about your favourite pair of shoes.....

I have a new sofite to share but since the software isn't on the computer atm (Brett had to reload the computer as it was having problems), I'll have to come back and share later.

Not much other news. Kaiden's teeth have finally settled down. We had neighbours over for an election party with dinner, games of pool and watching the election coverage. It was an predictable and early night.

Christmas is just around the corner...

Brett has started to put our Christmas decorations up outside and I've put the sultanas in rum to soak to start making some rum balls. Problem is that if I make them too early, they will be eaten as quickly as I make them! Kaiden is pulling himself up on everything and anything including my legs and is having some grief with some more teeth that are coming through. I've finished a couple of projects to share...
A monogram K made by Santa's elves

and a ribbon holder for a Secret Santa.

Ho, ho, ho or should that be ha, ha ha?

Nearly one

Hard to believe that our little guy is nearly one year old. He's no longer a little baby, more like a toddler, always on the go and into EVERYTHING! The invites have gone out for his birthday, just a small gathering at our house. This is the photo we used, the background was a bit iffy so I blurred it using Photoshop. Looks so cute!

Altered mobile phone pouch

Here's another OTP (off the page) project I've just finished. It's another Christmas present so I won't share all of it, just a snippet.

Inside is a little tag album. This is also for the Design Team entry I'm doing. I've also submitted the Baby Love layout and the YUM layout and I've got one more layout to finish by next week. Wish me luck!

Some more photos...

Just like his father

In the bath

Edited to say: As the lovely Tess has pointed out, I need to clarify. Brett does not sit in the bath with bubbles on his head. Brett does, however, cherish $20 notes and prefer the bigger notes over trivial coins.

Swing, swing

Here's Kaiden in enjoying his new swing which his Granddad bought for him. Thanks Granddad!

Some projects

Here's a few things I've been working on....
A gorgeous pregnancy photo taken by the wonderful photographer Chrissy at a SWIG (scrapbooking weekend) last year. A different style for me....

I also finished a layout of Kaiden enjoying some strawberries (the photo is earlier in this blog). But I won't share at the moment as it has been secured by the magazine Scrapbook Creations for their Quick Grabs section, not sure when it will be appear, probably a couple of months down the track. I just love this layout and will come back later to share.

I've also finished a little Christmas present which I won't post as the person probably reads this blog. Here's a sneak though

Kaiden's weigh-in

Took Kaiden to get weighed again, the results are in:

9.5kg (50th percentile)
73 cm length (50th percentile)
44.4cm head circumference (20th percentile)
Extremely cute (100th percentile!)
