Sketches in Thyme PL Style and Our Beautiful World

Loved this sketch immediately!
Flipped it sideways to fit into the orientation for my page

And this got a feature too!
from last week... cool!
This weeks theme...
'My Happy'
My scrap desk and shelves...
(though packed away at the moment with the renovations - sigh...)
This helps me reach whatever I need and is always in view...
its what I don't see that
gets forgotten about.

Sketches in Thyme PL style and Our Beautiful World....

 Thought its about time to do a challenge...
So with Project Life about the only thing I really scrap these days...
Sketches in Thyme fits in easily.

Here's the first sketch #25

I've flipped this on its side :)

Sometimes I really love to do a full page LO for my PL album,
yet still was able to do the little sketch on a smaller 6x6 diecut piece,
then place it on the LO to complete the bigger picture.

 Sketch # 26

Not quite the picture sentiment... but found a puffy sticker,
and cut out a pic of this little cartoon cat - believe me,
this is the exact physique of Blackie!

Poor Blackie, forever in a state of anxiety!
Trying to get the floor ready for new tiles - the boards underneath were in shocking
condition so needed to be replaced.  Blackie was beside himself with the disappearing floor!

Sketch # 27

 Don't you just love the 'crazy cat' stamps!
Suits Blackie to a tee!

He really does like to 'look' outside, but its very short-lived everytime!

What a coincidence is this photo of Paige in her orange top...
and the ceramic orange canisters on the shelf...
It looks positively...... retro!

Our Beautiful World....

This weeks theme...
'From a low angle'....
We've been renovating- part of the reason why I've been so scarce in the scrapping world
most of my supplies are packed away out of reach .....
Our house is old and has the most wonderful character... but what ISNT so wonderful is when something gets pulled up like old floor covering.... what is found underneath is a shock!
Yep... right down to the dirt!
This looks out towards the back door...
Even these joists had to be pulled out and removed, replaced and boards re-layed.
Sigh... the worst is done now! And its put back together :)

ANZAC DAY and Our Beautiful World...

Anzac Day, 25 April, is one of Australia’s most important national occasions. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.  It's a national public holiday. It also recognises all other theatres of war too.
 ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. The soldiers in those forces quickly became known as Anzacs, and the pride they took in that name endures to this day.

Today Paige marched in my fathers place as he can no longer manage it. With his medals and his grandfathers medals doned to her jacket,  Paige arrived for muster and was overjoyed when she was given the RAAF (Royal Australian Air Force) banner to hold and to lead the Air Force Association division.  My father's military career was first with the Army , followed by the Air Force.    Needless to say, Paige was so chuffed and proud......  And my dad... even moreso....
After the march to the cenotaph and ceremony,  Paige and her Grandpa went to the Air Force Club for a drink and catch up with ole war mates.

Our Beautiful World....

I LOVE this weeks theme...
Inspired by our trip to England and the Potter Studios...
The attention to detail is amazing
Do you know what this represents....? 
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Professor Lupin's trunk..
When Professor Lupin resigns... . . .
 his trunk packs itself up all by its self magically... . . .
books hop onto the shelf, shoes tuck away and coats hung...
What imagination!

Sunday Sketches and Our Beautiful World

It's been ages since I've joined in with
It was so great to get into Paige's little book now.
Maybe in under two years time, I'll have her's completed by her 21st!
The quotes I find for Paige are so different to the quotes for Hannah,
and are as individual and different as these sisters are....
