Online scrapping

I think it's so nice this online scrapping community. You meet lots of lovely people, get inspired by all the gorgeous work and learn different techniques. It's even better when you get to meet the online friends IRL. Last night I met my fellow Stylist at ScrapBoutique Emma. It was so lovely. She and her hubby came over for dinner and she did the Sunday Roast from our place. She was as lovely IRL as she came across online. I'm sure we'll catch up again next time she is back in Canberra or when we go to the Gold Coast to visit Megan.

Earlier this year I met the gorgeous bosslady Chels and our guest Stylist Amanda who were both lovely. Now, I still haven't met Lizee. Lizee and I have been online friends for quite a while but have never met. I would really love to meet her!! One day I'm sure :)

Luckily some of the scrappy girls live closer by. I met Donna at the retreat earlier this year and she has been over for a visit. Soon she'll come again, woohoo!! Of course I have my other gorgeous (scrappy) friends here too. And I love spending time with them.

I wonder, would a retreat here in or near Canberra be a good idea??


This weekend was the CC at ScrapBoutique. On Friday night we did the speed scrap with Chels and this is my LO.

I set a colour challenge this month. This is my example.

Chels send me some lovely Pink Paislee Chrissy paper and i used that to make this LO. The photo is a few years old but I quite like having a look through older photo's and using one of them to scrap. This one is from 2006.

I taught my Chrissy album last week at ScrapBoutique. I also used my 2006 Chrissy photo's for that as i didn't scrap much then and had no Chrissy work from that year.

Of course I'm going to do a Chrissy daily again this year but I thought I would make it a digi one this time round. Just to make it a bit easier in the hectic month.

I am also trying to do Jessica Sprague's Holidays in Hand classes. She is a fabulous teacher and always has wonderful ideas. It's a free one so join in if you like!!!

That's it for now. Some girls tagged me so I'll do another post rally soon!!!

Happy Scrapping :)

Well, hello gorgeous weather hey!! We are going from barely 14 degrees to 30+ degrees weather, nice :)

The girls are loving it so much. having fun with their tiny little pool outside! I've been enjoying the lovely weather too and have been going for walks almost everyday. Need to get a bit fitter I reckon.

Look at those chickies, love those "real" laughs, gorgeous!!
I find it a bit hard to take nice piccies in the bright sunlight. Really would love to do a great photography course around Canberra.... you know of any???

Chris and I have been out shopping this afternoon for a suit for him to wear to hs formal. He looked gorgeous, far out. A suit really does make a big difference hey!! Such a weird idea that his formal is happening already. Only a few more weeks...
Anyway... the stylists at Scrapboutique are busy organising the Santa workshops that are going to happen very soon. It's not too late to get your kit or access to the workshops!! It's going to be so much fun!!!

This month it is my turn to set the Sketch / stash stomper challenge at ScrapBoutique. This is my sketch.....

And this is the LO I created with it. The stash for this month is... glimmer mist (or if you don't have that, diluted paint, ink etc.) Can't wait to see what every one come up with :)

I also used some gorgeous Scenic route "Sonoma" to create this LO with. If you purchase some of this paper in the boutique you can get the step by step for this LO added to your order for free! Pretty cool huh??

OK, that's it for now, thanks for stopping by!!

Happy Scrapping :)
