"Smile" Tutorial for Scrapbook Boutique

If you are looking for an easy tutorial to follow, pop over to the Scrapbook Boutique blog and have a look at the new tutorial I have up, using the October Afternoon Woodland Park range.

October Afternoon ranges always manage to feed my addiction to Fussy Cutting, and this range is no exception!  Nearly every page in the range has me reaching for my precision cutting scissors!

Now dont panic if you like this layout, but dont want to do all the fussy cutting!  The sticker sheet comes with a sticker almost exactly the same as the fussy cutting I did!

For full instructions head over to the Scrapbook Boutqiue blog, and for all your materials pop in to the fabulous online store!

Philippians 2:15b

"Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky"

Philippians 2:15b  New International Version (NIV)

This month's "white with one" challenge is to use

 As soon as I read the criteria I had two things come straight to mind.... the verse from Philippians 2 "Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky", and the Coldplay song "Yellow"..... Look at the stars, Look how they shine for you, And everything you do, 
Yeah, they were all yellow"  So iI used both on my layout!!

So iI used both on my layout!!

The photo was taken at Meg's "Yellow" 12th birthday party in May this year.  I cant remember if  I shared any of the photos from her party invitations and decorations, so here they are!

Psalm 139:5

"And with your powerful arm you protect me from every side"
Psalm 139:5 (CEV)

I have always loved this photo of the kids, and the way Tom has his arms wrapped around Meg.  When I found the verse from Psalm 139 I knew it was the perfect verse for this photo!

The layout is based on this sketch, which is the current monthly sketch at Scrapbook Supplies Online.

Isaiah 49:11- Happy Birthday Tom!

"And I will make all my mountains a road,

    and my highways shall be raised up."

Isaiah 49:11 (ESV)

Happy Birthday Tom-  15 today!  And as this post goes live on my blog we'll be sitting in the Grandstand at Hell Corner watching the pre-race entertainment for the 50th Anniversary of the great race!  Not a bad way to spend your birthday!!

This photos is one of my favourites from our trip to Bathurst last year.  It was taken on Tom;s birthday!  We're up the top of the Mountain, you can see the white letters of Mt Panorama on the green grass behind Tom, and if you look closely you can see one of the Team Vodafone cars reflected in his brand new aviator sun glasses!

Happy Birthday Tom.......... and Go Craig!!!!!!
