The reason why Chillaxin' was on my mind all weekend was the photo I used in this layout. As soon as I saw this picture of Lachlan on my camera screen, I knew that chillaxin' had to be incorporated onto the layout somehow:
My next scrapping item was the dreaded school picture. I don't know how many of you out there feel the same way as me but I HATE scrapping the annual school portraits. This one is almost two years old and I have lost count of how many times I have pulled it out and put it away all becuase of the background. I seriously do no know what the photography company were thinking when they chose that background to go behind green school shirts. I finally bit the bullet and just grabbed papers, sucked it up and scrapped the layout. Not happy with it but it is another layout for the album:
And finally, I tried move away from my single photo layout trend used in the previous two layouts to create this:
The pictures are from our day trip (one and only day trip - never will I drive up that horrible road again) to O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat in the Gold Coast hinterland. There is nothing wrong with the Retreat itself but omg the road up there leaves a lot to be desired. I am not normally one to succumb to car-sickness (only one other time prior to this and that was due to an unknown pregnancy) but I did not enjoy the car trip at all. The walking trails up there are awesome and the scenery totally beautiful but nope, sorry not for me ever again lol. Please don't let my bad travel experience let me change your mind about heading up there. It is something everyone needs to do once lol.
Heading towards the end of the term. Students have assignments going left, right and centre. My Year 12's are on the countdown for the rest of the year - 8 teaching weeks (or 40 days) according to them; eek is that enough time to get through everything I need to get through???
Have a good week everyone.
