I’ve been super busy over the weekend and done a heap of pages for my album for our Christmas trip to England.  Here are my layouts from the past few day.  Not much else to post – hope you enjoy looking at the pix.


We don't look toooooo bad seeing as we'd just been off the plane from Australia!

Self-timers on the camera rock

He was very, very excited!

Not totally happy with the title - need to figure out how to make it pop a bit more.

Same problem with this title!

I used the sketch from Scrap Therapy's Cyber Scrap Challenge for this one. Really like this sketch. You had to do some distressing/painting and/or inking for this one too.

Recognise the sketch? Yup, did two pages using it, but they will be quite a few pages apart so don't think anyone would notice.

I used Rachel's Heidi Swapp distresser on these pix - I want one now!

Great scupltures!

I made this last weekend (I think) but forgot to share it with you. It's a set of flatpack drawers from Kaiser and covered with their new prairie lane collection and with a rubon on the top. nice i thought.

seasoned with sugar

Well, two weeks into the Seasoned Scrapper over at Little Scrapbook Shop and I have two nice OTPs to show off.  Week One saw us making covers for a book to record our Seasoned Scrapping work in.  I can’t say I love mine, but it’s alright.

Cover of my note book for Seasonsed Scrapper - used some Krafty Kutz, some patterned papers by My Little Shoebox, letter stickers by Basic Grey (and some ancient TLC ones), some foam Thickers and some DM and Kindyglitz.

This week the challenge was to follow Deanne’s instruction for making a very cool box with cocertina fold slots to hold the cards we make over the year.  We also had to make sure our card what ‘summery’ in feel.  I was pretty pleased with how mine turned out – nothing fancy but it’s neat, accurate and bright.  The instructions on how to make it are here.

Not many materials to make this one, black card, patterned paper from Basic Grey's Lemonade range and foam Thickers.

Anyway, I’m off to continue scrapping some of our holiday photos from our trip to England.  Hopefully I can find some inspiration!!!

nearly the weekend!

I’m excited as it’s nearly the weekend and tony’s parents are coming to visit (and bringing their boat).  We will be off to our nearby ski lake for some tubing and skiing which will be good, good good.

I have a few scrappy things on the go – hopefully I’ll have something to show you in a day or two but in the mean time here’s a little quote that I really liked (and the pic) and thought you might like it too.
