Scrap the Girls May challenge

Title: Girly Girly

This was Jackie when she attended kindy. Every day she would put all these tutu's on and the pink hat and play in the cubby.  Often as not the teachers would put the tutu's aside for the other kids to play with. When they finished and just left them lying around Jackie would grab them or they would give them to Jackie to wear. 

I have used cut out fairy ballerina's, (Jackie did ballet), and lipsticks, which were mine and she would use them, a pink bag which Jackie use to play dress-up with at home.
A cut out photo strip because I was always taking photo's of her, flowers and a butterfly. All girly girly stuff.

Show us Your Stuff

Title: Special Bond

These pictures represent Jackie and Ness growing up together. Jackie and I always told ness there is nothing you can't do.  Give it a go, I always told both girls that even if you failed you always learnt something along they way so there is no failure.
Ness is a special needs girl, so Jackie always had it rough sometimes with people saying mean things about her baby sister. Ness didn't care because she didn't understand them. That didn't stop Jackie from protecting her and teaching her how to react to these hurtful words.

Jackie was her mentor and big sister, she would show Ness how to do things, and let her have a go. Often showing her how things are ment to look then letting Ness put her own spin on it.
Even now they both have similar interest, Real living magazine, sushi on Tuesday ooooh and pinterest, swapping idea's about how to change Nessie room around.

The poem I used was as follows:-

I don't think you will ever fully comprehend
or how you've opened my heart
how you've made my dreams come true,
to love and the wonders it can do.
 quote came from, "will you ever understand"

This is what Jackie has done for her sister Ness
thank you
I have used lots of cut out hearts, dollies and flowers in the girls favourite colours. The heart that has the word LOVE is where I have done my journaling, there are three hearts. The picture of the shoe's and dress represents the girls love of dressing up when they were little.

Scrap the Boys April Challenge

Title:- My Dad,, My Star

This was a hard challenge, but here is my niece Tina's husband Scott and their three boys Hayden, Aiden and Adam.

Scott is a big part of the boys lives, teaching how to fish, going out on the family boat, hunting deer, but nothing goes to waste as it all gets brought home and put in the freezer, and how to shoot a gun. The boys are taught how to look after their guns, how to maintain them as well, its not left up to dad.
The boys summer is taken up with playing cricket which Scott coaches their team as well. 
But they have done a great job, as two of the boys are in the army cadets and army reserve.
They are not just father and sons, they are mates too.

Scrap the girls- april challenge
Title:- Loves to Read

This is my daughter Jackie at the age 0f 7-8 years, her school was having a dressup as a character of a book day. From an early age Jackie loved to read, anything and everything. She dressed up as a princess, in the photo it shows her with the book divider she got for reading so many books.

Even today, Jackie loves buying and reading books. Now, she found a site where young college students upload there books for people to read and give feed back. Jackie says she has two or three young people whom she follows and raves how talented and amazing they are at writing.  So far she has read over 50 plus books online, that was within the first two weeks of finding this site.

I love this soft colour palatte, I have made a hand made flower at the bottom in the corner, bows using ribbons. Also, a handmade ballerina and hearts and stickles on the wooden letters used for the title.

Scrap the Girls- February Challenge

 Title:- Together, Create, Cherish, Journey, LOVE

 This is what happens when you visit your daughter and grandbabies, and you fall asleep in your grand-daughters bed.
For the times you get asked a question when your half asleep and you cant remember saying sure no worries. This was one of those times, my grand-daughter wanted to do my makeup, this was the result. Don't I look beautiful.
I was late getting this up, but love make the gold metal flowers, stickles and ribbons.  
Scrap the Girls- March challenge

Title: I'm a big girl now

This is my daughter ness when she was 2 1/2 years old, notice she has no shoes on, she was forever taking them off and stripping as well. We use to call her Vanessa the

Ness loves lots of things, the colour purple, her Big Ted, she's had him since she was born. Loves smelly candles and dolphins in all shape and sizes,  and her purple bike as well.
In the picture you will see several teapots, as one of their happy memories was coming home from kinder and school I would have setup for afternoon tea on the porch. They would then go a get a little girlfriend and come back, I would serve them scones, jam and cream, with tea (hot chocolate) in a real teacup set.
Sometimes I would ask them to dress-up and I would pretend I was their waiter as if they were coming into a restaurant.

The best part was I could just hose down the porch and our dog Tara would finish off anything that was left.

I have use handmade cut outs of the teddy and dolphin, as wall as several handmade flowers. Bling and stickles on the flowers. Other things on the page hold a special meaning to Ness. The key to a heart (mine/dad's) and the metal bike.

Scrap The Boys March Challenge

Title: My First School Photo

This is my grandson Izaak, this is his first school photo at high school. Handsome devil, he has found new friends, new way of doing homework on-line.
But he is still a caring and loving kid.

He has grown over the last few months, becoming more independent, with getting a mobil phone and riding to and from home.

High school is allowing him to grow, but still be himself. I am very proud of the young man he has become and is going to become.
Love you Izaak to the moon and stars beyond.

I have handmade the flags at the top and the stars around his photo. Also, and Image from the five nights of Freddie films that he loves, and well as thing that are used in school.
