Wow, what a busy couple of months our little family has had!
Top of our best of times had to be the family holiday to the Gold Coast.
The holiday of a lifetime!
Here are a couple of my favourite pics.

Loads of memories and even more scrapbooking to do. I took 1100 photos :)
So what scrapbooking have I been doing?
For the September Challenge over at ARTastic Challenge Blog
the inspiration was Holiday Homes by Michael Cartwright.
The criteria was quirky and fun! What a fun challenge it was too. I decided to challenge myself by trying something whimsical and using a photo that was cut out. Something I don't often attempt, but I was really happy with the results!
The flowers are from Prima, butterflies from Jenni Bowlin and I have used a mask by Crafter's Workshop with Gesso. The paper is the 'Dancing Girl' range by Fancy Pants. The chip branch is from ScrapFX.
Next was the October Layout. For this month ARTastic chose an amazing piece of art by Mia Taninaka called Salvation.
The criteria is to include wood and/or feathers. I sort of included both. The layout I did was inspired by a sketch I found, I'm sorry but I don't remember where from though :)
The paper is from the Basecoat range by Kaiser on a Bazzill background. I have added some wooden accents from Imaginarium and Jenni Bowlin, a doiley from Prima, some decorative tape and some other bits and pieces.
Another project that I have just finished are 9 treasure boxes for my mother-in-law to give as present for some friends. These were heaps of fun as I haven't made something off the page for a long time.
The boxes are from Spotlight, papers, bling and flowers by Kaiser (Curiosity Range), Prima flowers and an old dictionary.
And last on my list of recent creations was this layout for myself. Just cause I can :)
The papers are from the 'Indigo Bleu' range by Pink Paislee. This range has a beautiful subtle feel to it and has greys, yellows, blues and teals. To finish the layout I used some transparencies, buttons, brads and staples. A touch of Glimmermist and Distress ink to soften the edges.The alphas are from Prima.
Thanks for coming over and having a look, can't wait to see how my November layout looks.
