ScrapBoutique June Cyber Crop...

Yay...It's cyber crop time over at ScrapBoutique. Sonia hosted the speed scrap last night and this is what I came up with.

These Crate Paper Toy Box papers were perfect for these cute photos of my little nephew Riley. Getting a smile from Riley was very hard this day but these cheeky photos are some of my favourites.

I love my EK Success large circle punch....it is so fabulous for boy pages.

I set myself some goals at the beginning of the year and as we have reached the halfway point, I thought it would be a good time to reflect on how I am going with them. This is my page using the gorgeous Pink Paislee Daily Junque papers. My cyber crop challenge this month is to assess how you are going with the goals you may have set yourself...I'd like to see lots of entries so pop on over and check it out.

I just love the colours in this range...they are a bit different to what I'm usually drawn to...

my handwritten journaling is on the news flash tag...

I am happy with how my goals are shaping up this year! I have a great new job and our home renovation is almost done...I say almost done because we still have some painting to finish but the majority is finished.

My new scrap space is finished and everything is packed away neatly...for now!!

...my new desk, with my embellishment centre...where I store all my paints, mists, some inks and embossing enamels. The craft drawers on the left were a gift from my lovely best friend Kim...who has just started crafting again and never forgets to remind me I have her drawers, lol. Thank you Kim!!

My old scrap desk is now home to most of my supplies...geez it was tiny!!

...and I now have a hanging shoe holder to store my punches out of sight behind the door.

It is a much better space to scrap in...I have a new television and the computer at another desk. I just have to choose a sofa bed and then I can have all night scrap sessions without bothering the rest of the family, lol.

One last layout to share...my first at the new desk.

A photo of my son Jake learning to drive in his Dad's old work car...

I had fun stamping with paint and added these magnetic words that Jake got from a recent careers expo...

I have used the Crate Paper Toy Box papers and chipboard...the best boy range I have seen for ages.
