Much ado about nothing

Pretty much summarises our life lately, lots happening but not much happening. Just the normal run of the mill stuff that I'm sure most families do. It is also the name of the Shakespeare play my friend Kathryn her son Greg and I went to on Sunday. It was held in the local caves and it is a great atmospheric place to hold something like this. They do an annual Christmas carols there too which I keep promising myself I'll go to. It was a nice light hearted little play with a bit of deceit, betrayal and romance. Very entertaining.
A few shots from the play

We also celebrated Joseph's 13the birthday which now means I share a hose with three teenage boys.

I tried to take some photos of my reshuffled nook but because it is so narrow and my camera lens is not that wide it was really hard so I have just put one end of my new desk. the computer sits up the other end which I am loving. I have so much more floor space now.

A really old layout I did a few years ago for a stamping class using different techniques such as resist stamping and masking.

A more recent one with an old photo using Jack's world PP. I love this shot from when the two younger boys were little. we were living in Yambuk then and it was a heavenly place to raise young boys. We had the ocean one side of us a lake the other and a few acres around us with lots of trees and a huge house. I still miss it.

another old/new layout. I started this one around three or so years ago. It was a kit from Aussie scrap source but I go t sick of rubbing on the quote so ditched it in the finish off basket for a few years. When I redid my nook I decided to try and get rid of some UFOs and this was one of them. It was probably for the best to leave it anyway as I added a few things that I wouldn't have a few years back.

a gift a made last night for Joseph's teacher as a thank you for taking the four KIC(kids in charge/junior school council)kids up to the young leader's forum in Adelaide, hope she likes it.
the kit was bought from here . I used basic Grey Urban prairie papers.

Little Xavier. From a layout I took a sketch off from, hmmmm, actualy I can't remember from where but I loved the way it was set out and thought I'd use it. It's a little wonky sorry, it sat on a shelf in my lounge for awhile and got a little bent. Figured it would flatten once it was put in an album. Pattern paper from Kaisercraft
