Long time no blog... tough!! Nah... just haven't done a lot to write about. But this last weekend I scrapped up a storm... did 2 CyberCrops! One at ScrapWitch and one at Scrapping Around {where Karen DT's}. Popped in there and had a lovely time and met so many faces I've known years ago... small world hey!! ScrapWitch was a hoot as always...

Anyway... the layouts!!

This one... had to use ink in 5 different ways. So I have distressed the edges pad to paper, distressed the tag via sponge applicator, stamped with ink, written with ink pen, coloured in in ink. {I didn't take this pic... my friend Julie took it from her back verandah in Esperance... I had to scrap it!}

This one I just did for fun... had to play with these yummy papers! They're in the shop if you want them - the papers, not the LO!

This is my first LO I did for Scrapping Around CC... was a numbers one. 1 PP, 2 Cardstock, 3 photos, 4 words and 5 Embies... I quite like how this one turned out!

This was also for SA... a cute 6x12! What a fun size. Fine... took me hardly any time but you don't know how hard it was to choose the right arrow LOL, but it works and that's all that matters. Thanks Monique... I enjoyed trying something new!! Great way to use up those big offcuts as well!

This was for the Witch... not too sure how I feel about this one, loved the challenge though. It was to use ribbon in 5 different ways, while scraplifting one of the members layouts or technique. So I chose Penny Hackney, I love her freehand style and find it such a challenge! So this is it... I am obviously not the next Penny! Oh btw... congrats Penny on getting this months Scrapbooking Memories FRONT COVER... wooohooo girl!!

Alrighty.. this one, use the phrase "Bloom where you are planted" somewhere, somehow. I soooo had something totally different in mind... but am happy with this, simple but effective I think!

And this one {yep... was a busy girl}, use the song title "because of you" on your layout... and here we go, another simple LO. Oh well... this is what I'm liking doing atm... just can't quite do the full on fill the page ones right now... next stage of the scrap journey I guess!!

So that's the layouts...

Went to see Harry Potter on Saturday... it was awesome! I am soooo enjoying these movies! Will get the books when she finishes the series... no way am I hanging out for months {years} like I did for Stephen Kings Dark Tower Series again!!

Got some more acceptances for FK... been a while since I've been subbing so submitted a couple {about 20... lol} and got some!! So will have layouts in Issue 57 {this month} and Issue 60.

What else... not a lot! Kel is going a bit stir crazy stuck at home on the holidays, loves not being at school... but they're not doing much here. Next holidays I'll have to take time off so at least he and I get out of the house. They did go to Darren's mum's today to help in the garden though, so that's good and Kel loves hanging out at grandma's.

So all's quiet on the home front... that's why I got so many LO's done! No guests, no visitors... just us doing our own thing, as much as I love seeing, doing and going... it's nice to just be at home and do nothing!

So that's all for me... until next time, take care of you!!
