Family Holiday Time... and a little Scrapping Time too!!

So we're holidaying on the Gold Coast this week, and before we left my hubby says to me "Why don't you pack your scrapping stuff to bring away with us". I'm not sure he quite knew how much room my "scrapping stuff" would take up in the boot, but he even packed a trestle table for me!! Love it!! He is awesome!! Here is a pic of my scrapping setup in our apartment:

It has been so nice to get some quality scrapbooking time in (in between visiting theme parks of course!). I even found a local scrapbooking store only 5 minutes from where we are staying!

The first layout that I've completed while away is one of my beautiful daughter when she was 5 years old. The inspiration for the theme actually came from a Little Yellow Bicycle banner that I had that said "Enjoy". When I looked at the photos of my daughter that I wanted to scrap, I thought "She really enjoys life!". She is such a happy and joyful girl, and I wanted my layout to convey this. I chose some bright and happy Kaisercraft papers that I thought really reflected her personality, and the layout flowed from there. Here is the completed layout:

Here is a closeup of the little felt bird embellishment on my layout that I picked up from Typo - so cute!!!

After completing a "girly" page, I was in the mood for something boyish, so I decided on a layout of my son when he was only 4 1/2 months old - what a cutie!! I loved the bright reds and blues in these Merci papers and thought they complemented the photos perfectly. The theme flowed from the stars on the papers - He is my little star! When I look at these photos, I think of how much potential he has. He has his whole life ahead of him, and it makes me wonder what great things he will do. I know that as long as he shines that light from within, he will touch many lives and achieve many things. Here is how the layout finished up:

And some closeups...

Well I might take a break from scrapping and head to the pool and a relax on the sun lounges (will take a scrapping magazine with me though)!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog :)
