The Big 4

After being slack or busy last week and not scrapping I decided to be good this week and do 3 layouts. However I got into the craft room and was tidying and started to potter and got a fourth done.
The first is a layout of David and myself.
I love this layout and put some extra love into it cause it was Valentines day. We don't do Valentines day but since I was scrapping on the day I thought I'd do a love layout.
In this layout I sewed on the 2 trims of paper at the bottom and a little around the top right hand side of the page. It was my first time sewing.
I also enjoyed cutting out the flowers and adding some paper flowers in the photo below. I used my first pin in this and it most definitely won't be the last. I hope I don't become to pin addicted.
I just love both of these photo's and liked the difference between the color photo and the B&W photo. Nice for Valentine Days.
The second is a photo of David when he got his new mulcher. Off course he got a big one. Couldn't get a regular when, however he did acknowledge that there was an even bigger on that he didn't get. Thank the Lord. 
Okay, so layout 3 is also of David floating around in Kayangan Lake in the Philippines. It is so amazing there. We could not believe how many beautiful places there was there 'til we saw it with our own eyes. We had a big walk to get there, up some fairly rough cut rocks that they called steps and could not believe the end result. Truly awesome.
I didn't know what to do with this so I just got and pad of Tim Holtz Distress Ink and rubbed it over the page to give it something. It is fairly basic but I love it. 
And the last layout is of our beautiful friends Philip and Mary. These are some of the photo's we took of them when we went for a drive on Easter Saturday 2011 to Marysville. We stopped at Maroondah Dam for a walk after morning tea at Healseville. You can see their love for one another in their eyes and in all they do. They are an inspiring couple. God blessed us very much the day they came for a visit to our church while they we on holidays in Lara some years ago. I hope they come back again soon.
With this I had a My Minds Eye paper pack and I thought it matched nicely. I played a little with the distress ink again and creased it up a little and smudged over it a bit.   


  1. Very impressive week! I love the Valentine's Day one - so simply stylish. And I'm going to have to try the inked background effect, I think... oxo

  2. Gosh lovely you have done more layouts this week than i even have. I love the photo of you and David together - you look so happy... hope to catch up soon
