well i haven't blogged for a long time very slack am i
haven't been 100% but that's life LOL

i have however been scrapping madly and thought i would share one of the Layouts i've been doing
This is one of my fvourites, it's of Adam and Bek and me in what seems like a million years ago, poor little Adam, you can barely see his little face poking thru, i love these gorgeous Blush papers from Basic Grey, the little bits of bling i picked up from the $2 shop or as Conor called it when he was little the "pretty shop"
the little 7 Gypsies sticker is there for when we work out what year this was, i know the photo was taken at the park on the Esplanade in Cairns as we used to go there to play in the afternoons sometimes with Mum and Dad, i can still remember the big slide and the little slide and how they'd get really hot in the afternoon
i really love scrapping these old photos
