Sports day for Hayley

Sports day for Hayley was on Friday for grades 2, 1 and Prep.
It was so good to just follow 1 kidlet around instead of 3.
I was able to get lots of photo's and enjoy the day with her.
She was so proud of herself as see came homewith a 1st, 3rd,
4th and a well done. Not to mention Hayley and her mom won
the 3 legged race. Thankfully I don't have a photo of this:)

And here is some photo's of reagans soccer game on

Saturday. he has advanced so much this year and he

still loves playing.

Just incase you never picked it up, he is a defence player

and with his long stride he certainly puts the pressure on his

And last kelsey playing netball, each 1/4 the girls get rotated

to a new position so they get to learn all the positions.

I d idn't get toget that many photo's of kelsey's game as they were

bunchedup alot and it was hard to get photo's with just her in it.

Looking forward to doing the new Purple Pumpkin sketch this month.

So if you are after a challenge pop on over to Purple Pumpkin.

never to late for a sketch

This is the Purple Pumkin Sketch for JULY,
and today is when it closes. So if you have
time pop over and enter in there sketch challenge.

And below is my take on the Sketch, followed by
a couple of close-ups.

The day I took this photo of Hayley we were in Brisbane

at Southbank with some friends. We decided to go to the

park after going to the science centre, to let the kidlets

burn some energy on the play equipment. As they were

all good, we decided to reward them with an ice-cream each.

A Movie World Photo

This is an old photo, of the kids I thought I would scrap.....Since I have just renewed our yearly tickets I thought Iam gonna get bucket loads of more photo's from the theme parks.
Plus it won't be long and I won't be able to get them on the smaller rides. Especially Reagan as he is nearly as tall as me (at 10 years old, imagine how tall he will be at 18 ??? ) so I might as well make themost of it while I can.
I hope you scrappers visited the purple Pumpkin SALE.......Yes I spent heaps...
I will be checkin the mail box this excited....
Don't forget to get your sketch entry in over @ Purple Pumkin, I think it closes this week.
I have almost completed mine.
Here is a close up of my layout, I just can't help myself.

Have a great day........Carla

I have been going though the loads of scrappin stuff I thought I would get a little dirty with some paints and spray mists. I used a brown paper bag and white cardstock, the rest is some PPumpkin and embellies I had in my stash.....Reagan so loves the army colours at the moment ( i mean in everything ) and if it is in clothing I can't seem to get it off him to wash..grrrross. ...I hear ) yeahmy thought exactly.
Must be aboy thing.

Holidays nearly over

Just another day to go before the kiddies go back to school.
We have had alot of fun going to the movies - we have seen "HOP" and "RIO".
There was alot of people there today but we still were able to get good seats. And I might add the first time I didn't have to do a toilet run inbetween the movie...Yippy
And I have done a bit of scrappin...
This one I have used some teresa Collins ( POSH )
Here we went on a river cruise on the city cat on the Brisbane River, the weather was misty rain and cold so we were on the cat for quite awhile before we got off. These were some of the photo's that was taken on the boat.
Despite the weather it was a fun day out.

A purple Pumpkin button......u see.......
