Updating August

So August as a month has flown by but I did manage to do some scrapping inbetween all of the hecticness.

I was Baptised on the 12th which was a long time coming (since January!) so I decided to scrap a page of the ocassion quickly.
This is the first page where I have used my newest addition to my stash...crackle paint! I did a class at Create on Ormond in Geelong where we were taught how to use it so of course I have had to experiment.

It has actually been quite a productive month in terms of scrapbooking though, I have completed quite a few pages. And speaking of Create on Ormond, I purchased a challenge pack whilst in store which was all about monochramatic scrapping and only being able to use the elements that you were provided with. Loved the challenge, here is what I came up with.

I, like many, love macaroons and have even started making my own. This LO is all about the first batch that I made. They took me all day but the result was worth it! A little rough around the edges but they certainly had the 'homemade' feel to them.

Over Easter this year, David and I went on a little holiday and 1 of the things we went to do whilst away was cherry picking. It was the first time I had ever gone fruit picking and I did quite enjoy it (although I would have enjoyed it more if it was not 40C!) I spent most of my time hiding in the shade of the trees.
Now this LO was 1 that I really challenged myself with as the photo was so dark (all you can see is the tea light on the table and some reflection of lights coming off the water) I wanted to make it a bright page

 But my favourite page I completed this month was of a muck around photo that David took of us when we were in Phillip Island. I loved the paper and just loaded up on some more layered embellishments at the bottom of the page.
