Hi there, well here's another week of PL, l am so lov'in this way of scrapping our everyday,some weeks will be a real challenge to find photos to srcap, so l have to start being a bit more inventive with my photography, l say this because even though l have 4 children, 2 of them live hours away and hard to catch up with and even though l have the eldest and youngest at home , one of them hates his photo taken and the other one deals with it ok but is not very often home, so what does a girl do? what do you take photos of, when you still want to document your life, you have to find life, everyday life, weather its a picture of the sky ?, road signs, pets, or bills,my album with be l suppose a bit of everything, just a bit of the everyday, you might think some of my photos odd, but its still my everyday, ...... This week we spent time catching up with family over the holidays and seeing my sisters shop for the first time since she brought it 2 years ago, she lives hours away too, and pics of travelling through the city to get home, also catching up with one of my brothers and his children.
Products used for these pages American Craft - letters , rubons Becky Higgins - card inserts Kaiser Craft - rubons Bella - brad MY minds eye - affection die cut Stamp'in Up - inks, embossing folder, heart punch, stamps markers Ali Edwards - stamp Making memories stickers. January has started to be a big month so far, with a few extra things happening so l had to do a extra 2 pages, last year l entered the Australian Scrapbooking Masters Competition, and even though l didnt win a major prize, l was thrilled to get a honourable mention with a double page l did on my daughter.
And the next page is on Brodys first week at his new job, but also starting off the week with a bout of Tonsillitis, his medication and doctors payment reciept, he also had to do alot of gargling.
So that was my week, cant wait to see how everyone else's week went........hope you all have a good one .........kate


  1. Oh my gosh Kate, your style is awesome! I love the little embellishments you've added to your cards. I totally get what you mean about not having the most interesting things to photograph. I'm a SAHM of two little ones and our life is often, quite monotonous. However, that is the season of life I am in, so I've embraced it, and tried to come up with creative ways to photograph it! You'll be surprised what you can come up with! Nice job on the layout this week! I look forward to coming back.

  2. It looks great - love the gargle journaling card!
