My First Bike

Through my usual blog-hopping, one I look at and admire regularly is Alisa's ( (in fact, really, she was the extra push to me signing up with SU! - thanks again Alisa, I got to meet Alisa at convention and she is just as lovely in "real life" :)). Anyway, Alisa had a scrapbook page and link to a new Australian Scrapbooking site (, which has a "build-a-layout" challenge each week. I am definitely going to try and follow this once a week, I have lots of photos in boxes, and if I can keep up with a once a week page AND learn new ideas while I'm doing it - it has got to be all good. This one I did all at once, rather than one "mystery" step at a time, but I love the way it has turned out :) This is our oldest boy at 2.5yo - he's now nearly 17yo, boy does time fly!! .. he's still cute, but much much bigger LOL

I took a close-up of the embellishments, I love how they turned out - and I'm loving that scallop punch, I thought it was just a trendy "must have fuss", but I caved in and got one, and really couldn't do without it - it is so versitile!
