To Share

Hi all, i hope you have all had a great weekend and managed to stay warm and dry in this horrible winter weather?

I just wanted to share two layouts with you.

The first is a beautiful layout sent in by Michelle Frisby and features her daughter on her 18th birthday.....gorgeous work Michelle and thanks for sharing it with us.

And the second layout was sent to me by my very dear friend Carey Morris.
If the photo looks familiar....that's because it is!
It just so happened that Carey was scrapping the photo of my son Josh on his 16th birthday at the same time as i was scrapping it, and no we didn't have any idea what was happening.

Here's Carey's beautiful layout.

Josh loved your take on his photo Carey ;-)

Thank you ladies for sharing your beautiful work with us.

Milestone Birthdays

Hi all, Ann here and it was my turn to choose the new theme this time around.

Our teens all look forward to those all important milestone birthdays, you know the ones i mean...Becoming a teenager at 13, the all important 16th and officially being recognised as an adult at 18.

My layout is about my son Josh last year on his 16th birthday.
Even scarier is the fact that he is turning 17 in 3 weeks....eeeek!
Where does the time go?

Here is Michele's layout for this theme, sounds like her lovely daughter Ashleigh had a great 13th birthday.

Postage Date Stamps – A Clegg
Staples, That’s Amore Freebie - CinziaL
Photo Edge Mask – Jessica Sprague
Overlay 1, Grungy & Weathered2 – Kim B
Overlay 2, Crumpled notepaper - Misstiina
Overlay 3, Bella - Nancie Rowe Janitz
Note paper, Sass for your class journal2 - JEdwards

Here's mine - I couldn't decide which birthday to choose so I combined a few of my sons milestone birthdays onto one LO. He loved looking at how he has changed over the years.

Heya Ilka here, mine is about Chris's 18th Birthday. It was not such a big deal for him after all, but I guess that's because he did a lot of growing up over the last two years prior. But adult or not, he'll always be my baby boy and he knows it LOL!
Lianne - for Emma's 15th birthday she just wanted a family day out. She wanted to get her nose pierced first then go to the zoo. So we spent a relaxed day at the zoo, then went out to dinner on the way home. Was an awesome day and she loved it.

Hi all. This is my take on Justin's 18th birthday. I really enjoyed doing this page so hope you enjoy the result. Happy scrapping - Adrienne

Hi there teen scrappers.

Adrienne here to start the ball rolling with scrapping "teen achievements". All our teens achieve at some level but often we need to show them that they can achieve anything if they just try.... This sentiment was the inspiration for my layout. John and the boys went on their first-ever trip to the snow last year and learnt how to ski. Not only had the boys never seen snow, they had no idea how to walk on it ..... let alone ski! They had a quick lesson and then a long practice session .... They had their best-ever fun and achieved a new skill (well, almost).

Hope you all have fun with this topic. (P.S. I had such fun with the snowflakes which I have never been able to use before....Yee Haa!!)

Hi, Sarah here. This is my take on this one. Winning the Westlake junior 1500m race and setting a new school record was a real buzz for my youngest son, Adam. Hi All...Ann here.
My layout for this theme is about the achievements my daughter made at college, i wanted her to be able to look back later on and see just how well she had done at school.
Lianne - We were so proud when James was picked and sponsored to go on the Spirit of New Zealand. He had the most amazing time, one he will never forget. When I showed him the LO he got the map out and showed me where they went again it was great for him to reminisce this wonderful part of his life. I used this gorgeous NZ fabric on this LO, the fabric has these cool blocks of designs which I cut out with jac paper attached to the back (makes it easy to cut fabric) and mounted some on chipboard randomly to give a 3D effect.
