And one more...

Finished another one... 3 EDM in a weekend. have to say I'm pretty pleased with myself!!

I found some-one's mojo...

I say some-one's as it's definately not the one I'm used to, but I'm quite happy to use it until mine comes home to me!! So I've done another 2 LO's my EDM album... the theme this month has been Seasons, using some cute little Carolee's rubons. They're cute, but not me so I had to change my whole everything to work with them!

So this one is a quote I liked {and a good way to get rid of 3 of the little season 'stamp' rub-ons}... remembering when this photo was taken it should read "drunk" instead of "happy" - either quote still works! LOL!

And this one is again based on a shortened version of another quote again... I wanted to use different things for this theme, I think this one works! Plus - this one, the un-mowed back lawn, is definitely one of My Everyday Moments!!

So yeah... bit different for my usual styles... but beggars can't be choosers as my mum always says so I'm happy borrowing whomever's mojo I have until Lisa gives mine back!

And speaking of handbags still...

We had a rough night and I've not slept a wink. We had a home invasion whilst we were in the home, again. But this time they've taken my handbag with my purse, filofax, iPac, phone and wedding/engagement rings plus my MIL rings she passed to me. I'd taken them off at work and put them in my bag to keep them "safe" and remembered thinking on the way home I must put them back on when I got home. I'm so upset and Darren is beside himself, they are treasures that can't be replaced and I'm soooo MAD at the ^$&!#*% who dare come into our house and take what is not theirs.

They've come in thru the bedroom window, which an adult could not fit through so it would have to be a young kid. I have a big suspicion of who as well since we've had no trouble until this one feral family moved into the neighbourhood. They've grabbed the iPac on the bedside table and then would've spotted the bag in the hallway. Since we would all have been in the middle of the house they'd have been out of sight.

I am always so paranoid about my bag, it's always on the floor next to me when I'm inside the house and under the bed when I sleep - except for this time where I'd put it on the return in the hallway where I could see it plain as day - I had my hands full when I came in and plonked it there and when I went to grab it last night - gone! So many one off incidences leading to this - I can't help but wonder what fate had in mind here, I've done nothing to hurt anyone else!

We've had a wander around the bush but can't find anything, was hoping they'd grabbed the bag, run into there, taken the purse and then chucked the rest... I just want those rings back. We've phoned the local hock shop and emailed them pics of the rings {thank god I'm a scrapbooker or I'd never have thought to take photos of my hands!} But my feeling is they just wanted easy cash and will have tossed the bag. Am typing up a reward notice to put on the local shop's notice board. Even if it's the same ferals handing it in I don't care so long as I get those rings back.

OK... thanks for listening... I need to go and chill, Forensics are here, not that they'll find much but it's needed for the insurance.

Just what every girl needs in her handbag...

Oh yeah... and did I get a shock when I opened the bag to empty it! Nearly wet myself with fright! I see scales that move and always think snake!!

Funny thing is - about this time last year he was under my scrap desk! But somehow - he's wandered in the back door... all the way through to our bedroom at the front of the house and decided this bag was a perfect place to have a snooze! How did any of us not notice him!

So now he's back outside... wonder where we'll find him next!

Awesome Cyber Crop

Our last Cyber Crop for the year was... in a word... awesome! I had the BEST fun! I only managed to get 2 LO's done... but so far there has been 58 LO's loaded to the gallery... not to mention the LO's our little scrap rebels did over the weekend!

Best weekend... am so proud to be a part of this site and these girls lives!

Anyway... my sad attempts, well actually, they're not so sad! I quite like them now - just 'different' for me!

This is the colour challenge one - Pink Red and Brown. So naturally I chose a boy LO.. and Crissy - finally I rose to your challenge... look very carefully and you will see Bling on a boy's LO! Oh the funny thing with this LO... Kerry did the same thing for the same challenge... and Vicki has done one previously! Rose Coloured Glasses abound at LC's!

... and this is for the new "cluster" technique I'm seeing popping up everywhere. Love it... but I found it hard to do, especially for this "more is more" queen of the scrap world!!

We also had 3 other challenges - a sketch, a step by step and one about scrapping something mundane but meaningful. I'm a slacker though and didn't do them! I'm thrilled I got these 2 done as my mojo has definitely left the building!

Oh.. Peta {thanks Peta} put me onto the new version of Mozilla Firefox 2.0. If you use Mozilla Firefox, go download it now - it's got spell check for all these little windows we type in on the forums and even here! It's brilliant - especially for slackassed typists such as myself!!

Until next time... take care of you!

Cyber Crop Frenzy!!

Ladies... tomorrow night is the last cyber crop at LC's for the year! It's going to be a big one... so come on over and see what challenges I've got in store for you all!!

The Cyber Crop runs from Friday night right through to Sunday night... lots of chatter, lots of fun challenges and there's prizes! Vicki has a couple of great make'n'takes. I love these, they allow you create things you don't think you would or could do... and it's all becomes so easy that you sit there wondering why you didn't do it before!

Us Angels will be chattering away over the weekend, along with LC's wonderful members, so if you're not already a member... what are you waiting for! Come on over, join up and have some fun! We'll be in the Cropping Corner if you've wondered where all the forum action went, shall I save you a seat?

Until then... take care of you!
