cos Josh's fruit and veg chart is working a treat! I think he ate more broccoli happily tonight than he has eaten in his life. He stands there and looks at the chart and then comes and asks for fruit - yes you heard right - ASKS! Oh the lure of the promised wheel-a-round tool chest from Bunnings when he fills his chart. It's worth every cent in my book. If anyone wants a copy of my chart just email me. It's all done up pretty in Publisher with pictures of the vegies and all, lol.
Also been catching up on some scanning of layouts from a few weeks ago. Always feel very virtuous when that happens. I even stitched the double page together twice - once in Photostitch then in Photoshop, getting serious now! This first one cracks me up. It's Samuel on Christmas night when he was just soooo exhausted he needed both dummies in at once.
Then here's the yummy Magnolia papers from Scraptacular on a layout from our holiday in Perth last April. My sister Kate's partner John has a motorbike which Josh was VERY impressed with.
Then these ones are all for the album I am doing about my brother. It is really helpful to be doing these layouts, but hard at the same time if that makes sense. I'm gradually allowing myself to face some of the sadness and pain. I guess your mind lets you know when you are ready to take another little step.
This one includes my blog entry from the day we had our goodbye party with the boys at Lilydale Lake. These are Chatterbox papers but are quite old now (still my fave line from chatterbox though).
Here is the man himself at 3 and a bit just after he had an eye operation. I must get more details from Mum about what that was for. Doesn't he look just a little bit cheeky, lol. I think these papers are Paper Loft, I just grabbed them off the shelf at Scraptacular because I loved the colours. I promise this is straight in real life - oh how my scanner hates chipboard!
These would have to be my favourite pictures of Ian (Roly is his nickname) with his children Cassandra (now turning 18 this year) and Phillip (turning 16 this year). You can just feel the love in these photos. Yummy Cosmo Cricket 'Wanted' papers.
Another memory from our holiday in Perth. These are also old Chatterbox papers and I have Di to thanks for them, cos I recently turned up to scrap at her house and had forgotten all my pp (that's my story anyway, lol).
Night all, have a happy tomorrow.
