Belinda Venables - LOVE her simple style
Tam Milborn - absolutely LOVE her simple but quirky style

Ok - thats done!
ANd here's what I've been doing - have done all my christmas cards - don't they look cool all piled here??

And here's a present I made for a friend.

Oh this was done a while ago - a VERY multi-photo LO of pretty much all the photos I took on one day in Sydney

And this is my entry for the puzzle sketches blog this month - my boys!

Not long now til we're off to Cocos - can't wait.
Spoke to Mum 2 days - spare a thought for those southwest WA farmers who were having a bumper season this year, only to have nearly 3 weeks of straight rain (which means you can't harvest and it also ruins the grain - it lowers the value of it) so now they'll be lucky if it goes 'feed' - they are getting to the point where they are worried that CBH wont' accept it at all.
Up here we just finished harvest yesterday!! YAY (LOL - as we don't have a big cropping program at all - being on the station with the whole 'pastoral lease' thing, you can't actually sell it - you can only use it for livestock feed/hay etc.
But my FIL has been harvesting for a few weeks for the neighbours and had an absolute dream run with the weather - but somehow I thought I'd better NOT mention this to Mum!
Anyway - off now - catch you later!


  1. love your interpretation of the puzzle sketchs critera, your LO it great!!

  2. ooooooh i have never been given one of these......thanks so much Fran.

    You know i think it is so funny - i admire your work so much. Every mag i pick up and drool over the layouts shown just happen to be i am a BIG fan of your style.

    I think us 'simple girls' (you, me, Leanne S, and Bel) need to stick together as we are in a minority here LOL.

    Damn i wish you were coming to the retreat too!!!

    Thankyou so much for this cool award!

  3. Thanks for the award, Fran! Love your recent scrapping... love ALL your scrapping!

  4. Fran I love the double layout you scrapped, it looks amazing.

    Your cards and layouts are gorgoeus.

  5. Love the LO Fran, the background colours are very boy-ish.

    And you say you're going to Coco's??!! Do you mean Cocos Keeling Islands?? Oh Im sooooo jealous!! Ive been there 3 times, and actually lived there for 6 months when I was younger. It is the most beautiful, unspoiled place ever. We're planning on another trip once asap, perhaps next year, once my niece is a little older (she's not quite 1 yet.)

    Anyways, have a blast!
