And the Rub-ons go to.....

Tara! Congrats Tara and thanks everyone who left a comment. They were lovely messages to read :-) Tara, could you please email me at with your address, and I'll get them on their way to you.

Well, what else has been happening? - hmmm. Our washing machine died on Friday, and on Tuesday we had it's death confirmed by the repair guy :-(. I loved our washing easy to use, so friendly to clothes. He he....this is funny...I can't believe I just said that about an appliance LOL! Oh well. I dragged Roh & the kids out with me yesterday and we picked up a new one. And it's so funny - I don't think Rohan has ever done so much washing in such a short period of time.....must be boys and new toys me thinks ;-P. I'm not going to complain though...

Not much happening on the scrapping front, as I've been working the last two days. Maybe tomorrow though.

Hope everyone is having a great week! Hugs, K xx

My 100th Post - And to Celebrate....A Giveaway

This weekend has been quite productive and fun. Had a lovely morning coffee with Danielle and Vita yesterday, and we ended up at our LSS where I bought some new Rhonna Farrer's my new thing - stamps - I just love them! Then the kids had a party yesterday arvo that we all went to as a family, so that was cool. Then today I've been creating..finally getting all of the mail art finished - sorry girls..I know I'm a bit behind with this but I promise I have finished everything but the envelopes and those I will do tomorrow :-P

Now, to the giveaway:
These are the funky 7 Gypsies "Girlfriends" rub-ons and to win them, all you need to do is post a comment and I will randomly draw out a name on Wednesday night. I think they are pretty cool so I hope whoever is reading this does too.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Post 99....oooohhhh

Wow - I can't believe I've almost hit the big 100 - I think my next post will have a give-away thingy to celebrate. Boy...I must be able to talk a lot to get to this number LOL!

Anyway, today was a good day. Danielle came over with the kids, and we let the kids completely run amok together, and we scrapped. Here is the layout I finished. It's for the current "How Dare You" blog where you needed to use beads (the blue line in the frame around the photo is beads - it took me ages to glue down :-P) and I also incorporated the Bam Pop Fatbird stamps which are so adorable and also part of the prize. Yes - Bam Pop stamps are up for grabs, so if you are loving Bam Pop like I do...maybe give it a go. I think you still have a few days. Love this photo of my wonderful sister Dan and fab cousin Bec - both younger than me so I think it's ok that I call them kids here :-) and they are definitely quirky!

Roh's gone out "transformer" toy shopping/hunting with Lana so I've almost got the night to myself..just one little boy to tuck into bed. And then I'm going to scrap - yay!

And the Winner is....

ALISON GRAY! Congrats Alison - the little Bam Pop "Buckethead" stamp will be on it's way to you this week. (For those of you who aren't in the know - this was a little competition run at Picture to Page Scrapbooking Fair).

Picture to Page was fantastic fun, met lots of lovely ladies, and men too..and even grabbed myself a couple of new things to play with - yay!

Had a productive day today..unfortunately not creatively, but I did organise my Love, Elsie shipment - should be here within a couple of weeks - Woo Hoo!! Can't wait.

Not much else to report - only other Kiti Q Hambly should be up on the site by the end of the week, along with Scenic Route Paper Co and Crafty Matters. Hmm, lots of fun stuff.

Enjoy your week!

"His & Mine.."

I just love this quote "Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same" by Emily Bronte. Isn't that beautiful? Well, I thought it was perfect for this photo of my cousin Bec and her hubby Joel. I had so much fun doing this layout - loved limiting myself to just a couple of colours, and I really like the end result.

Oh, for all those who live in Melbourne, or around Melbourne, or who are visiting this weekend, there is the fantastic "From Picture to Page" Scrapbooking and Paper Show on this weekend - Saturday 19th May/Sunday 20th May - for more details please head over to the Kiti Q home page where all the details (address, times, cost) are listed :-). Would love to see you there!

A New Addition - Take 2 :-P

Well, I don't know what went wrong with my last post, but the images disappeared, so I'm trying again. Fingers crossed it all works this time :-)

So, here's my new bag (thanks Dan!) and one of my latest layouts.

Will update my blog again very soon....4 more sleeps until Picture to Page.

A New Addition - Thanks Dan!! :-)

Look at my fab, new, one of a kind funky vintage bag that my lovely sister Dan bought for me - I LOVE it!! It's so cool. It's from this groovy little store in Upwey called Voski, and is hand made and designed by the owner there. Just LOVE my latest addition to my bag collection! Thanks Dan xx

On the general life front, not a lot to report in with. My little nephew Ash gave us all a little scare, but after an overnight stay at the hospital for observation, all seems ok. Although Dan & Ben obviously want to keep a close eye on him, understandably.

I've been hectically preparing for the scrapbooking fair - Picture to Page - which is next weekend (19th/20th May) and I'm getting in A LOT of new stock which will make it's way to the online store after this event....Hambly, Crafty Matters, Scenic Route....just to name a few. Will upload all the details for the fair in another post next week.

I managed to get this month's 1,2,3 Blog challenge completed - I had to use 3 or more patterned papers, a transparency and flowers. So here it is. I used 3 papers from the Fancy Pants Clair De Lune range, which is very pretty, a Delish Design rub-on, a MME transparency and quote and EK Success Chipboard Alphabet. I just love this photo that Danielle took of Alannah.

I received some fun mail art in the post yesterday, but I haven't got a photo of it yet...will do so today or tomorrow and then share - they are fantastic!! Thanks Sylvia! Thanks Teina! I've got to get onto mine today or this weekend sometime, hopefully :-P

Thanks for visiting...and have a FAB Friday!!

Who loves Bam Pop?? Me!!

Yup, I love Bam Pop, and just can't help myself with their stamps - I want them all!! Look at this new little guy - he's called "Hellobot" - isn't he adorable? I'm actually using him on a layout I'm working on at the moment. Fun!

And this month at Kiti Q - all the Bam Pop is on SALE - 15% off - how great is that?Well, I'm off to play a bit more. Enjoy your Sunday!

Fun Photos from Sydney

Here are a few fun photos from Sydney. Firstly Viv and Danielle, my roomies - we had so many great conversations and lots of laughs, and Viv is such a sweetie. Next is Emily & me - Emily taught this super fun class with paper towel dying - lots of mess and creativity. I will upload my layout soon. Then there is Danielle, Rhonna Farrer and me - Rhonna is so vibrant and lively and her classes were great fun. Oh, and of course, a classic Sydney shot - Dan and I in front of the Sydney Harbour Bridge - we had such a great day although my legs and feet are still recovering from all the walking LOL!

The final image is a sneak peek of a class kit designed by DQ, coming soon to Kiti Q. Doesn't it look awesome? It's using new Cosmo Cricket Halfway Cafe papers...tempting? Should be in-store by the end of the week.

Lots to share..

Wow - back from Sydney Kiwiscraps, and what a fantastic experience it was. Tiring, exhausting, creative, busy, social and so much fun. I got to meet some wonderful ladies and scrappers, and had a ball in the process. The classes were jam packed and I've now got some new techniques to play with. I'll slowly upload the various class projects as I finish them. This layout is from Rhonna Farrer's "Oodles of Doodles" class which was my very first class in Sydney.

Danielle and I had a very free and spontaneous day in Sydney on Monday, doing things that we don't usually get to do - like going to an Art Gallery and eating a whole icecream by ourself - LOL...something that is a rarity when you have little kids. We also got to see our parents and grandparents off on their cruise which was very cool.

Here is also another layout that I did in Sydney, but it's my design. Dan and I played around with our limited supplies on Sunday night, and this is the result. I've been meaning to scrap this photo for ages, for my friends and it came together really easily that night - I must have been inspired from all the classes I had taken! Love the Zina Wright stamp - so swirly and funky.

Um, I thought I'd share a couple of recent piccies of the kids. Ok - so Jude had his hair cut a couple of weeks ago and here are his before and after shots - isn't he a spunk?? LOL And an up-to-date photo of my kindy girl, little Miss Alannah and her beautiful long hair. Will sign off for now, but will be back soon with some photos from my girls weekend in Sydney :-)
