Project 365 & some scrapping

Ok so I MEANT to come back and post last weeks photos but I guess I forgot LOL. I jumped on here today to do some posting about my scrapping and thought opppps I'm a bit behind! hahaha oh well I put my photos on a LO again so here you are - April 13 through to April 19.

Credits - DebF - Year in Review template and everything else from ksharonk designs.

Now I have been doing a bit of CT scrapping over the last week and I would love to share my pages with you. Sharon had put the delicious kit Sophisticate in the PBP store last Friday and I couldn't wait to use it. The papers are so yummy and the kit is very elegant!

We asked and she delivered - Dawn made some fabulous doodled page borders with some handy notebook style papers for us to play with after one of the CT girls made a request for them. The pack is called Daydreamer and you can get it here from the PBP store. They are so much fun and I had a great time making this page - chock full of Dawn Inskip goodies!

Bella you are so ..........

This page was made with a seriously GORGEOUS kit from Deb Fisher Designs called Simply Wonderful - and it really is simply wonderful! The colours are just delicious and the elements are adorable.

Now I am not usually a HUGE fan of templates (except for Deb's!) and usually I am a bit slack when it comes to using them as part of my CT duties but when I saw the Template Pack 20 templates from Kristin's Scrap Designs I really wanted to use them. I love the blended bit that is included in the template - I have never been able to do that very well so it is great to have all the hard work done for me! I also used Kristin's cute kit A Taste of Summer.

Not a lot going on here at home this past week. Hubby is recovering from his hernia surgery on Tuesday and we have been staying close to home to look after him. He is getting better each day and I am really glad that he elected to have the key-hole surgery as it looks like he will be all better in a week or two as long as he doesn't try to do too much.

Apart from that Bella and I went to the ANZAC Day march yesterday - her school has been marching as part of the Geebung-Zillmere RSL's march for a few years now but we never seem to get there. Yesterday was Bella's last chance to march with her school as she is in Grade 7 and she really wanted to march for the memory of those brave men and women who died to keep us free, so we both made the effort to attend. It was very touching to see the children so serious and the veterans really appreciated the rousing applause they were given at the end of the service. My camera batteries were failing me (why me!!!) so my photos are a bit shoddy but I wanted to share this particular photo with you that (for me) was so moving and so represented what was wonderful about the day.....

See how patiently the LightHorseman sits there letting the children pet his his horse, the whole time they are peppering him with a hundred questions which he answers with a kind humor.

That's all from me for today - I hope you all have a great one!

Absolutely gorgeous pages Amanda! I'm too disorganised for 365, but I love looking at everyone elses LOL

Gorgeous layouts and well done keeping up with the project365. Hope your Hubby gets better soon. I had that done a couple years ago and it is a pretty quick recovery. Luckily considering my boy was 7 months at the time.

You are amazingly talented Amanda - I love your layouts!

I also really like your 365 Weekly page layouts - I need to learn how to do them so I can do all mine and put them into an album.

Keep on keeping on!

Good girl! Another layout of your 365 photos. You won't regret this, how fabulous they'll be all printed in a book.

What a wonderful Anzac Day picture, you've really caught an essence with this.
