august.... here..Wow, how fast has this year flown by

I have been slack again and so busy too...but heres a few layouts from me. I was very lucky to attend the Camp Mojo last month in the Hunter Valley, surrounded by so many awesome chicks and spectacular scrapbookers from all over Australia.
I must admit I didnt scrap too much, but had the best retreat for a long time, just having fun, which is what life is all about...isnt it???

 This is a layout of Alicia, dancing at Christmas in her new fairy clothes. A kaiser doily and Prima stem along with some WOW chipboard corners.

 This is a layout of my grandfather, I did this layout at Camp Mojo,  funnily enough the first I have done of him, and yes i did shed a little tear rmembering this man, who I love with all my heart. I lost him when i was 11 yrs old and can still remember so very clearly how much he loved me and the fun times we had together. I have used a bit of masking, and a WOW frame.

 Heres another 'old' photo...this is Thomas and my nephew, Jak...prob not even a year old at Nana Cookies hose, wanting to go for a swim no doubt!...How time flies, seems like yesterday. You can so clearly see their personalities on their faces here at such a young age too...Love this shot!
I have used a WOW cogs boarder and the individual cogs too.

 This page was done at Mojo too...its a photo of me and my little brother, john....and I know that the journalling is hard to read, but it is so true. We have always been best friends, never had a fight, either as little kids or adults ( excluding that gf of his we didnt agree on!! lol)...and We are always there for each other always.

 Another Mojo challenge page.....I think this was Prima and Lace and Sanding...but I would have to ask Peta, as i couldnt remember anything!....Its a photo of Maddison, all dressed up pretty, as usual.

 A page of Miss Ali..capturing her soft side. I have used a WOW corner flourish, along with pearls and vines.

 A page of Thomas and Olivia from down the snow last year. I have used a WOW large frame, with roller doodle of ink on it...and lots of hand sewing, even the title is hand sewn!.

 At Mojo...we had a recycle just to be different! ( what me!!).....I went table to table, scrapper to scrapper and got a small piece of 'rubbish' or off cut from them. Then added them all to this Tim Holtz configurations tray. It was so much fun meeting and stealing the rubbish.....everything from old photos to lolly packets!

 .......and then everyone at Mojo signed the back for me!

 Another trip down memory lane......A page of me as a babe in my dads arms...a place I always felt safe. Again, yes i had another tear or two doing this page...( what is that about I say!..getting soft!!)
I have added a WOW chipboard butterfly.

 Here is a page of my POD....lots of 'stuff' here..... and usuing a WOW circle and mini frame and ink.

I will finish with this page, that I did at Scrapgirls Retreat in July using the xmas challenge pack, although its not a chrissy photo, its actually Liv at Halloween, when she discovered that she actually likes donuts! I have added a WOW flourish that has been misted very black.

...I have just realised that nothing here is in any order, but anywhoooo thanks for popping in.

.....I off to the snow now, so watch for lots of those photos to be scrapped soon
