Bathurst Adventure

Jeff has just turned 30! Another one of my babies in their thirties!! Too scary!
To celebrate we all banded together and bought airfares from Auckland to Sydney, acommodation, rental car and tickets to the 50th anniversary of the Bathurst V8's, for Jeff, Lloyd and Mike. It is the first holiday that Mike has ever had with just his sons!
They had the best time ever!!! They were still so excited (and very tired and hung-over) when they got home 5 days later.

I am adding this layout to the Frosted Designs Friday challenge, which is Sports!
It is the first time I have used these Spellbinders sprockets. I think they are really cool!

BITW - Touch

Jeff and Aimee have moved in upstairs after they put their house on the market and it sold  one week later and they had to be out in 3! They were expecting it to take months and have plans for building a new home. But... in the meantime, renting in town wasnt an option when you have 2 precious outdoor cats!!
So..this layout is of Woki, who has been very nervous in a new environment. He is sitting within one quick leap to the gap that is his hidey-hole under the deck!

One of the 'Bird is the Word' challenge words at the moment is 'touch'. I always look forward to seeing what their new word is. They have some great words.
Lots of Prima, Rondelle, papers, flowers, bling and journalling block. I also used my new Spellbinders lattice die and some Easycast resin flowers. The centre flower is embossed bookcover canvas using Spellbinders Aster Flower Topper die (both dies and resin is available from Scottie Crafts)

It is wet and wild outside here, but I feel for everyone in the South Island who are really coping the weather bomb! Have a good,'inside' weekend everyone.

Summer Lovebirds

I gathered up some of the new Prima Firefly collection that has just arrived at Scottie Crafts. The colours are just gorgeous -bright and summery! Apart from papers I have also used the Firefly journalling notecard set,  Prima flowers, a Crafter's Workshop chevron mask and texture paste.
Jeff and Aimee have a boat and one of their favourite things to do together, is to pack sleeping gear, a food basket and fishing rods and head out to Kawau Bay for the night.

Challenge Me Happy has an Anything Goes challenge this fortnight - a challenge everyone should enter! So easy! Seeing as the papers and embellies are Prima, I have used this month's sketch as inspiration.
