Missing Teeth

Helloooo...This will be my last post for 2012. This year sure has had its ups and downs, but I am really looking forward to partying tonight and celebrating the end of 2012 and welcoming 2013.
I just wanted to share a quick layout I created for my Purple Pumpkin post. I used a sketch from Stuck is the sketch...
I flipped the sketch, and here is my take...

This is a photo taken the day Fletch lost his 2nd top front tooth. I love kids with their big gappy smiles they are so cute.

and here are some close ups...

Washi Tape and button are from Purple Pumpkin...

Buttons and doily flower are also from Purple Pumpkin
Thanks for looking

Some forgotten Layouts

How is everyone??? I was going through my blog and noticed I have missed posting LOTS of layouts this year, so not to bore anyone with hundreds of layouts, I thought I would pic a couple and post them tonight before my final post for 2012 tomorrow.
This first Layout I did for Purple Pumpkin. This is my best friends little girl Mia.
and some close ups...
I have used a Kaiser Cabochon, blue heart button and heart twine are from Purple Pumpkin.
 I am simply loving the bottle tops from Purple Pumpkin, this one has a pink care bear on it also I have used the pink material flower and floral button from Purple Pumpkin. The paper roses are from Green Tara.
This next Layout is one of my favourite Christmas Layouts because it is a fun one of my boys from last years Christmas Card Photo Shoot. 
I used the WRMK Lucky 8 punch to create the circle shape for the background.
I cut some of the trees from the paper range and layered them up...
here you can also see a slight close up of the stitching I have done on the page using the wrmk sew easy.
 The little red doily and red heart button come from Purple Pumpkin.
This layout is of my Dad and his wide with the boys at Sea World. This day was very special to me as it was on my 30th Birthday and my Dad drove from Victoria just to see me :)
 a nice little cluster of Purple Pumpkin buttons, twine and orange tickets...
This is 'Me at 3'
a little misting here and there and some yummy PP embellishments...
Satin lollipop flower, Couture creations beige flower, purple spotted button and a WOW chipboard peacock feather that I embossed with gold and coloured with glitter.
 And the last one...
'Carry laughter with you everywhere you go'
This is my lil Fletchy dressed up as a Clown when he was in Grade 2.
Care bear bottle top, blue/white spotted button and fluffy yellow button from Purple Pumpkin used here...
I also love the cloud buttons from PP and the Twine is so handy and it comes in soooo many colours.
Ive been trying to think of a song to end tonight's post, and I cant really find one that suits the post so I thought I would use a classic MJ song..
Man in the Mirror
What I get from this song is that I need to make the changes in my life and not expect them to just happen, but work at it and good things will come...and that's what I am hoping for 2013.

Life is full of Treasures

Inspired Blueprints is going to be back in 2013. I love working off sketches and was thrilled by the news when I read it on Facebook.
So a sketch was posted to get us in the mood and here is the sketch...
Photo: This is where Inspired Blueprints all began...with a simple one photo sketch.

To get you in the mood for IB's relaunch, here's a challenge for our facebook friends ---> create a layout inspired by this sketch and share it here. A winner will be chosen to receive a pack of scrapbooking goodies. Entries close 15 January 2012.
This sketch is one of the original Sketches from when Inspired Blueprints got started...
and here is my take on the Sketch...
I kept this layout simple as the photo of the boys was large...
There are little details here and there that I did myself...
I made this bottle cap with some of the patterned paper from this Kaiser collection...
 The orange/yellow cardstock I used here was put through my Big Shot and embossed to give it that sun ray pattern. The brads here are also made by me, I used the I-top tool by imaginisce a tool I have had for ages and haven't used.
Thanks for looking
a fav song of mine at the moment...
mmm Robbie Williams - Different

May the Magic of Christmas Warm your Heart

Merry Christmas Everyone, hope you have all had a wonderful day. I was awake at 5am this morning as my 2 lil ones decided it was time to wake up and open presents...I sent them back to bed...I know I may sound like a mean mum...but I have an excuse...Im not well, Ive been sick with a sore throat, and it hurts to swallow.
But I really need to get this blog in order...I know I keep saying it but I have no excuses now...Christmas is over and there is no school til end of January so I am going to be a little more organised!
This layout I would love to share with you today is for the challenge site White with 1. The challenge, White with red and a Christmas Photo.
I decided to use the photo I took of the boys that I sent to all my family and friends for Christmas. Its a little tradition I do every year since Andrew was first born.
I have used some Purple Pumpkin and a red ribbon that was from a Christmas present I received last year.
Here are some close ups...

I hope you and your family have been able to have a great day together and all the best for 2013
