They call me Bond...

They call me... BOND

Loved the colours in last weeks inspiration from Colour Combo Challenge, just took a while to do the layout with preparation for Christmas ;)  Inspired by all the circles, lines and textures.

The journalling reads... "This little guinea pig was only about a week old in this photo (taken on our WA farmstay), he crawled up DDs sleeve and no matter how much we tried to gently shake him out, he would not budge, so we nick-named him BOND - shaken, but not stirred.  I love how DD bonds with all creatures great & small too :)"

Hope you & yours had a fantastic Christmas too - I know we did!!!

Have you been naughty or nice...

Thought I'd try and do an Aussie Christmas photo with my two elves down by the beach, but the big elf decided to be naughty by refusing to wear her attractive head attire AND and trying and steal the little elfs hat LOL!

Chriastmas tree oh christmas tree...

Finally got to putting up our Christmas tree on the weekend, which is fantastic news, because it means our lounge room is almost habitable again!!!  Putting the finishing touches on the cabinet we purchased on eBay to convert it to our TV cabinet, and the new fireplace, just in time for Santa to make his way down the chimney!!!

Sold our old single antique bed in DS room to make way for another eBay purchase of a loft bed.  Was going to sand this little gem off the slats of his old bed, but couldn't bring myself to do it.  "I did it when I was really little, so I could remember how to get out of my bedroom"  he explained...

Toddler rules...

"Toddler rules..." don't they always LOL!
It's been a while since my subject was a toddler, but I LOVE the little tongue poke whilst clutching his precious collection of treasures found on the beach.  Ever since I saw "The 7 Rules of the Toddler" on Emily Falconbridges blog I knew that's how I'd scrap this photo - just taken a while to do it!!!  Inspired by this week at the Color Room to finally add the finishing touches :)
Just in case you can't read them, here are the rules:

  1. If I like it, it’s mine
  2. If it’s in my hands it’s mine
  3. If I can take it from you, it’s mine.
  4. If I had it before, it’s mine
  5. If it’s mine it must never appear to be yours, in any way
  6. If I’m doing or building something, all of the pieces are mine
  7. If it looks like mine, it is MINE!

"The greatest moments in life were made to share..."

Of course, life is not always this caring & sharing, but we can live in hope... LOL!

Inspired by the baubles to combine this weeks Colour Combo Challenge Colours into this months Stuck? Sketch. Lots of bling - gold ink, diamonte flower centres, pearls and sparkly alpha.
