Journalling: Last year we relandscaped our backyard. The brief - easy to maintain and plenty of room for the kids to play. Outside our window is a beautiful neat yard with plenty of lawn for the kids to run and play on, paved paths to ride bikes, a trampoline, a deck with a built in sandpit leading to their cubby and playroom containing dolls, lego and trains and a fish pond. Now the kids can play and we don’t have to spend all weekend gardening.

Caroline B.'s Baby Blue kit is my most recent CT kit. This kit has the most dreamy papers and the cute fluffy alpha is gorgeous. Caroline's kits always offer some really original designs and even though this kit is called Baby Blue - if you love the colour blue (like me) I'm sure you'll use it for more than just gorgeous baby boys. Kit preview is below followed by my layouts.
Love this photo of Ethan. Journalling: Ethan stopped having daytime sleeps not long after he turned two. With kinder and school pickups it was also very hard to fit them in anyway. We tried to get him in bed early but he still got very tired. He was constantly falling asleep in the car or on the floor. This day he put his pyjamas on and flaked out on his couch exhausted. 14.11.2006
This next layout was for the sketch challenge at nuts4digi. The sketch is from pencillines.com. On Nancy Comelab's blog she challenged people to write down their dreams or goals and scrap them and this is what I came up with. My goals:
- Learn to ski black runs
- Go back to competition tennis
- Swim in the Rip View Classic
- Renovate our house
- Travel as a family
- Get published in a magazine
- Volunteer - other than at school or kinder
It's actually good to have them written down. I hope to scrap each dream as I achieve it - so stay tuned.
The final layout is one I did of Ethan when he was a baby. I've been getting my old negatives put onto CD's by our local photo lab so I've finally got some baby photos to scrap.

We had some wild weather today. We were just about to get out of the car at school this afternoon and it started to hail. Luckily we were a bit early so we could wait until it stopped. By the time we got back to the car with girls Ethan was crying because he's hands were so cold. Poor kid, I put them all in a warm bath when we got home.

Sara had forgotten how to ski so she started in the first lebel again but progressed pretty quickly. She didn't do blue runs this year in her lessons but the last part of our home trail is a blue run and she came down with me. I was a bit nervous taking her the first time but she had no problems and just snowplowed straight down - my knees were feeling the strain from having to go so slow all the way down.
