We're cc-ing this weekend

Woohoo, the CC starts tonight at Scrapboutique with a speedscrap with Chels. Yay, love the speed scraps!! Kate and Liz will reveal their great challenges tonight and on Sunday night you are all invited to join me for the roast at 8 PM!! The ingredients are all up here.

Here's sneak of my roast. Hope to see you all there!!

I am scrapping a bit today as the kids are all at school and I have my scrapping time. Chels just sent me some gorgeous new papers that will be the new paper of the month (you know the ones you get all the steps for a Lo or other project with) and I am working on a holiday album using the lovely sass lass paper for a DT assignment.

Lana from Crafting in Style has all the new Kaiser papers and Albums in and she sent me one of the gorgeous new ranges plus an album which I am working on as well. Yes I have both these albums around me as we speak and am working on both of them. I am cutting out paper for one while paint is drying on the other. Might sound confusing but I love it, it's good fun!! I've got some of Chris' music on so I'm having a great time here.
Hope to see you all on the weekend.

Oh just wanted to say a big thank you to all the lovely people leaving me feedback or just saying hello, love it!!!!

Happy scrapping!!

Lights, camera, action.....

Lights, camera action.... (no not wiggles this time ;) )

We have a fabulous competition starting at CIS called lights camera action... It is on for 6 weeks and we create LO's based on Film posters (and some extra criteria). Go and check it out here, it's so worth it!!!!

We had a lovely mothers day on Sunday. The girls made me lovely pressies at school :) and Allan got me some yummy chocolates and some tulips. Love it!! The kids were all in a good mood and they took me out to dinner at night, what more could you want. Had a lovely chat with my mum in the evening, she's pretty awesome!! Can't wait for her to come and stay with us in September for a month!!

As promised some of the work I made for the kaiser dt call. I never ever do double LO's so it was a bit of a challenge for me but I'm quite happy with how it turned out.

A lay out about myself, don't do them that often either...

And a mini album about Lucy and her love for her dollies :) This is the cover and a few of the inside pages

I so much appreciate every ones lovely comments!! Thank you so much, mwah :)
Happy scrapping!!

Ruby her book

Happy belated national scrapbooking day ;) , how's that, our own special holiday!!

I have been working on a special 4 year old book. I read about it last year on Nic Howards blog and did one page just before Ruby turned for and then nothing. Yeah right. So I thought I'd better make the book before she turns 5 so we started 2 weeks ago. I still have quite a few pages to go but I thought I'd show you what we have done so far!
This is the inside cover. The other pages go after that. Still have to make pages to go in between and behind them but it will give you a bit of an idea.

I also did a LO for Becky Flecks Pagemaps.
I love being asked to do these kinds of things, they are an honour and fun to do!!!

There are some fun new challenges this month at Scrapboutique, go and check them out. Mine is the monthly challenge go and check it out here!!!
Lastly, I wanted to congratulate my lovely and super talented friend Christine Rumley for being chosen for the Kaiser Design Team. She is one awesome scrapper and an even nicer person!!! Congrats love, mwah!!
I didn't make it, snif, but that's ok. I'll share the projects that I made for it next time.
Have a great week!!
Happy scrapping :)
