2 of a Kind

I love this picture of my Pastor, who has a great sense of humor, with an Aborigine while we were in Australia.  I watched a video on how to make the flowers over at Creations with Christina and I love how they turned out. 

Sydney Opera House

I needed to scrap the Opera House for the gift album I'm making for Pastor and Cindy so I found this cute little sketch over at Sketches by Tamara and here's what I came up with.

Flinders station

This is the train station in Melbourne.  It is so big it takes up two city blocks.  A popular saying in Melbourne is "Meet you under the clocks" which refers to the row of clocks over the entrance announcing the departure and arrival time of the next trains.

Star Student

I've been busy at work this week so not much time to scrap.  I did squeak in this page that I worked on a little bit each night.

Girl Time

When we were in Australia, the guys went golfing, and the ladies shopped.  We stopped by this incredible cupcake place that we enjoyed.  Only half the calories when you share the cupcake!!

It is great to be 8!

I'm trying to keep current on several different albums that I have going.  This one is for Heather's BFF.  The party was yesterday and I scrapped it yesterday.  Now that's current!

The Fair

I had a good time scrapping these pictures of my daughter's friends children at the fair.  I love the night time pictures.  One of the two night photos is adorable with them holding hands and the other of them in the car with the ferris wheel behind them was precious.  Heather likes the one of Garrett holding the box of popcorn.  He was way in to that popcorn! 

I used the American Crafts City Park papers that were included in the October's Scraproom Kit.  You can check out this month's kit here.

Garcias in Sydney

I've started an album for my Pastor and his wife, Cindy, who went with us to Australia.  Here are two pages that I made using the double shot kits from The Scraproom.  Oprah had Martha on her show earlier in the week and then offered everyone a 50% off coupon for a Martha item at Michaels.  I used mine with a gift card that I rec'd for my birthday a couple of weeks ago to buy a punch around the page set.  I used it for the first page.

Hanging Out At the Zoo

I've been enjoying Liz Qualman's sketches over at My Little Sketch Blook  This week her sketch included a large die cut dinosaur and she challenged everyone to use one or something similar.  Well a 9" monkey was the best I could do!  I also made a second page without a sketch in order to use some pictures that I wanted to include.

Sassafras Lass Warehouse Sale

I rec'd a box from Sassafras Lass yesterday and it was so full that I wanted to share some pics with my scrappy friends.  When they have a warehouse sale, it is so worth ordering from them.  No, it is not their newest papers like Indie Girl that was in our last TSR kit, but there were so many great ones from their older stuff that I hadn't used before.  In my box, there were four stamp sets, 8 sets of felties, 6 alphas, a ton of paper (two of each kind which make double pages so much easier),  PLUS a 163 piece kit from the sweet marmalade line.  Here are some pictures.  Remember that you can click on the pictures to make them bigger.

Keep It Wild

I am nearing completion of our Austalian album or should I say "albums" since there are two.  I just have a couple more pages that I want to include.  I've decided to do an album for our Pastor and his wife Cindy who were our traveling companions on this trip.  I will use a lot of the same pictures that I used for our albums but will scrap them differently.  Here is one that includes pictures of Pastor Jackson and Cindy.
