Cybercrop weekend

Hey, it's cybercrop weekend today at ScrapBoutique this weekend!! We'll have a lucky dip Friday night, some gorgeous challenges from Liz and Kate and then on Sunday (at 8.30 EDST) a Sunday Roast with me. And if you are keen for a game of Bingo, come in on Saturday night 8.30 (EDST). It's going to be a weekend of fun!!


I have also been working on some other challenges. This one was made for scraplounge (see Mum, here is Ruby ;) )

and this one for scrapbooking top 50...

Ruby and Lucy have this fascination for slaters! They pick them up, carry them around and make parties for them in a bottomless bucket with little sticks and leaves, very cute!! So if they are looking at something on the ground or picking something up it's most likely a slater (pissebed for the Dutch girls) they are interested in... funny girls :) I guess I can kinda relate though. I used to love snails. Had them even in an aquarium in my room when I was a young girl AND I let them walk all over my arms as well....

My boss and I are working on a card workshop on the 5th of March for the international womens day. The ladies create a card and we mail them all to the women they admire. Sounds good? It's all for a good cause (mental health) and only $5!! Send me an email if you are interested.

See you this weekend at ScrapBoutique!!

Happy scrapping!!

Summer Holidays & challenges

It looks like we have been too busy enjoying the summer holidays to blog. Anyway....

We have been going to the park heaps, going to the pool, hanging out at home, visiting friends etc the last few weeks. Just a relaxing holiday :)

And guess what, I've taken the plunge and started on my journey into digi scrapping. I've given in and started the 365 photo "challenge". I'm just not going to paper scrap all these pictures. I've done that before and found it too hard to stay on top of it, so I purchased a Weeds and Wildflowers 365 days kit. OMG it's so lovely!!! I'm still learning how to do it all but am having lots of fun with it!! Here's my first half of a week...

I've also started joining in at Blue Bazaars art journal. Now I have never ever done any

multi media stuff or art journal but am so ready to learn something new!! So here is my first attempt :) I've used my word for this year on it, positivity!!

This next LO was done for a challenge at Karen's scrapping cupboard. My little Lucy drinking for my cup of tea. For some unknown reason everything tastes better coming from my plate or cup..hhhmmm lol.

This lay out is an example for the sketch challenge at ScrapBoutique this month. A sketch by the lovely Liz Weber!!

Speaking of ScrapBoutique. I am running a photo challenge there for the month of January. Every week I post another challenge and you have till early February to take the photo's and create some gorgeous work with it. Why don't you come over and have some fun with us! You can find the challenges in the random challenges.

One more thing i wanted to share with you all today is this book, oh my, how much I loved it, but I've finished it!! I can highly recommend it!!

This week I also had an MSN chat with my sweet bestest girlfriend from primary school. Our first chat in about 25 years I think! Oh it was so so lovely. It's funny how our first friends somehow always keep a very very special place in our hearts. Big hugs to you Juliet, mwah!!! We won't be waiting another 25 years to have another chat let me tell you!!

Better go now.... create some more stuff :)

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Happy scrapping :)

Happy happy happy

Happy new year to you all, my lovely blog readers.

Hope you all had a fabulous New Years Eve.

We had some lovely BBQ dinner with some lovely friends followed by some games with some other lovely friends. A lovely night all together.

I was however hoping for a little more of a sleep inn but Miss Lucy thought that 7.45 was late enough for New Years day :) Gotta love her.

It's so nice to have everyone at home these 2 weeks. We've just been hanging at home, taking the kids swimming, taking them to playgrounds and a bit of (Mini) pool fun in the garden. Perfect days.

The last few days of 2008 saw me scrapping quite a bit... some DT work for ScrapBoutique (which I can't show just yet) and some examples for the challenges at ScrapBoutique.

My stylist challenge is an inspiration one. Go and have a look and have some fun with it!!

I also set the monthly challenge as Chels is out camping; "Use some new scrappy goodies on a LO and let us know why you love them so much"

The first example is for the stylist inspiration challenge and the second on for the Monthly challenge.

Hope you are all enjoying the holidays.

Happy scrapping :)
