Proof that I have been scrapping.....

hahaha...ok....this is proof that I have been scrapping....although......they were done a few months crops at Mich's and Jorja's place.  yes....months ago!  Because I did them at crops, I didn't quite finish them off.  Things like journalling etc.  So this past week, I've had two pretty big projects for two mags that I was working on and once that was done and the last lot was mailed off yesterday, last night I decided to go through my pizza box that was full of these unfinished layouts and layouts that I have to file away in my albums.

So today, I finished the rest off and thought I better take pics of them to share....layouts just for me...just for fun....and I love them!

J3 loves to paint.  He's creative like me.  I love how at 7 years old, he can plan properly....he will put on his art smock, spread newspapers on his table, get all his things out...paint and then....clean up!
J3 loves Ben 10 Alien Force, so this is his currency at the moment.  If he does all his English, Maths and Japanese homework and has a minimum of 4 readers for the week...he gets to watch the latest episode which I religiously download for him.  Getting to watch it on my mac is extra special to him.
oooh yes....those who know me know I love my coffee.  My daily fix!  The coffee was from Dunkin Donuts (French Vanilla) and the little espresso machine was redeemed with my Flybuy points.  It has since gone to the Philippines to be put at work in an internet cafe, but I'll soon replace it with a slightly better model.

hehehe...yes....I can even scrap about a new school bag.  Just a pretty simple layout using up lots of old papers and embellishments.  Love the little 7gypsies rub on people which I applied on the alphas.  Actually J3 has to have a bag which is different from the usual school bag because of his anaphylaxis.  Teachers and aides have to be able to identify his bag quickly to grab his medication if he needs it.
Another ultra simple layout.  Love the Ki Memories lace cardstock full of words.  Very suitable for his layout.  Love how he is learning to read without sounding out too many of the letters.  Thanks Mich for the Maya road sheer journalling block.
Another ultra simple layout with a collage of photos.  Took these photos inside his classroom of things that he had made and the house chart, birthday chart and bag hook.  BTW...the sports house system are named after Japanese islands, Hokkaido, Kyushu, Shikoku and Honshu.  Pretty good huh?

That's it for now!!
