Another new LO - 3 Cute Little Cousins

Here is another challenge from the Cyber-crop I was participating in this weekend.

Had some fun playing with the Basic Grey Romani papers and ribbons - just adore them!

Off to bed now....

New Page - You Make Me Smile

Finished this page this morning for Zig Zag's cyber-crop. This was for Challenge 1 which was - must use pink card/pp and green card/pp, have hidden journalling and use white paint. Using lace was optional. So this is the result. The colours are a little out, but the pink is actually a deep watermelon colour, and looks quite vibrant against the green.

I had some fun doing this LO. I've been wanting to scrap this page of me and Jude for ages, so I'm so happy I've now done it! Never actually done hidden journalling before, so that was something new.

Just all great fun! Will maybe upload another page today too....we'll see :-)

An Innocent Reminder

Last night we taught about 30 disabled people how to scrap - well, we really scrapped with them. It was such a fantastic experience. They were so excited about the page they created, each leaving with a page as either a gift, or to display in their room. It was such a wonderful reminder of why we scrap - to share our memories, to make keepsakes and to enjoy ourselves creatively.

Busy, Busy...but still I scrap :-)

Have had a hectic couple of days. Kiti Q is in the process of preparing for our first massive (40 students) class for disabled people. I'm really quite excited about it, but it's been a lot of work. Only one more sleep and it's all happening - yay!

I managed to get a page finished over the last 24 hours, that I am really happy with. It's called "Warm & Fuzzy". Photography is again done by my fabulous photographer sister Danielle (see side link). She captures so many special moments, and I'm addicted to scrapping her photos almost as much as just scrapping! Anyway here it is.....

Take care xx

Some Photos from the Zoo

Just a few happy snaps from our zoo adventure on Sunday...

Beautiful Spring Days

What a beautiful sunny day it was today. I just love spring! My garden is blooming with stock, chrysanthemum daisies, mexican orange blossom and lavender as well as multi-coloured lobelia, and I just love it's messy look. I can't help peeking out of our kitchen window every time I walk by, just to look at the gorgeous flowers.

And yesterday was also another perfect day which we spent at the zoo. It was Jude's first time visiting the zoo, and he just loved all the animals, especially the meerkats. Got to catch up with the lovely Cass and her family which was fantastic, and have now got lots of new photos to scrap - will it ever end?? :-)

New Page - Our Little Rebel

Just one of the pages I completed at Saturday's fundraiser, of Jude. I'm really happy with it. I got to play with some of the new Urban Lily papers (thank u Dan) and I just love these pics that Dan took of Jude a couple of weeks ago.

Aarrgghh - just realised I'm 28 today!

On a Scrapbooking High

I had such a fantastic day at the Dylan Hartung Scrapbooking Fundraiser Day. Not only did I get two pages finished but I got to meet my online friend Charmane, in real life! Here is a pic of us.. Danielle and I felt a little bizarre being able to scrap without interruption but it was great and very productive. The fundraiser was a success and Jody did an amazing job in raising over $10,000 for the Hartung family.
My scrapbooking high did not end there though :-). When I got home and checked my inbox, there was an exciting email from Julia at For Keeps - they want my "little miss fashion diva" page for their monthly article feature called "Inspired by" - yay! How exciting!! So this week I will have to post off Alannah's hat and my page to Sydney...I don't know what Lana will think of that.
So all in all, a really wonderful day.

Something Fun to Play with..

Aren't these some of the funkiest ric-racs you've seen?? My dear friend, and fellow scrap addict, Cass, sent these to me today, and what a wonderful surprise to get in the mail. Thanks chickie!! I'm going to have lots and lots of fun playing with these. Can't wait to see you - 2 more sleeps - yay!

Yesterday was a hugely hectic day, well, it felt like it anyway. The kids were at their grandparents and I was free to do as I pleased, so I went shopping :-) and then to the hairdresser. Will post a photo of my new 'do' soon (I promise, Hayley!).

Finished the two challenges for SAM, but am not overly happy with them, so will not post them yet. Hoping to scrap something new this arvo, but if not, I'll definitely scrap something tomorrow at the Dylan Hartung Scrap Fundraiser Crop Day - I just can't wait! I will finally meet some of the girls I've chatted to on-line and will get to spend a day of scrapping with my sis, Danielle, child-free - yay!

Chat later,

On a Positive Note..

Today I got an email request from Scrapbooking Memories for this page "Sound of Your Heart" to go in their mums gallery - yay!!
I actually quite like this page, because it's of my sister, Hayley and nephew, who is not yet born, so it's very special. (not long now until we do get to meet him :-))

Uploaded some very funky new bazzill cardstock colours to Kiti Q this morning. Have got some myself to play with - should be fun!

I've almost finished one of the challenges for the SAM Elsie Challenges competition. My mind has been in a bit of a fuzz over this - I signed up and then got completely sidetracked - still have another whole page to do and upload by tomorrow. Will share when I'm finished. Off to scrap now.
Big Hugs,

I love this photo

Unexpected ..

Wow - I have a blog. This was definitely not something I had ever planned on doing. Yes - I do love reading other people's blogs - mainly other scrappers, but I definitely don't think me, Kelly, has much to report of interest, but who knows.... I may surprise myself..
