Layout Share...

I've not done much in the way of scrapping, or so I thought until I loaded all these!

This one is for a "Scrap the Same Photo" Challenge at ScrapWitch... it was great fun to create for creating sake and I'm going to use them as a collection of layouts with poems. The Haiki Poem I found on the net, just can't find where again to credit the owner... the photo is courtesy of Kim who suggested the challenge.

A simple one of Kel mucking about with Darren's sunnies... I have a great array of pics from this little 'photo shoot' but the rest are waiting for a special kit to arrive from Heather to work with for them! Don't you just LOVE the Cougar Flames chippy, it's from TwiddleyBitz.

And this one is called... getting desperate for photos again so the honky nuts over the fence will do!

This one... an old friend of mine and me back in '92 or thereabouts. I was inspired to scrap this from listening to KLF on my music thingy over there----> we used to have the BEST time together. Then lost contact when I got married and she moved to Melbourne. But thanks to Facebook we are in contact again...

The latest Step by Step I have done for ScrapWitch... a simple one, but again it has proven to be a very versatile design. All the SBS instructions are on my MaD[ly]scrapping Blog.

and this one is an alternative LO for it, based on the same design with some alterations. This is my buddy Lisa's daughter... love this pic of her!

So scrapping wise... that's all for now! Hopefully I will have more tomorrow... if I find some more photos!

Until next time, take care of you.

Up to Date with 52Q again...

The Last Brave Thing I Did?

I simplified it to Brave? Because I'm not, brave that is... I'll avoid rather than stand-up, unless backed into a corner... and you don't want to back me into a corner!!

A simple one this time, have used Glimmermists and MoonGlows, old Text, Fancy Pants RubOn, AC Thickers, HS Bling

Fave Movies that Inspire {Creatively}

This was hard as I don't generally get all revved up to scrap while watching a movie... but there are elements of some movies I'll think of when scrapping...

I have used: Glimmermists and MoonGlows, Carolees Alpha Stickers, AC Thickers, HS Stamp, Prima Bling, Collections Branch and Dove

Until next time, take care of you.

SBS 2 - Today

This is the latest SBS I ran this last week at ScrapWitch. I really LOVE this LO. It's an amalgamation of bits I loved about 2 other LO's I did a few weeks ago, with some tearing involved... love grunging it all up!!

The girls have done amazing work... so rapt that it's working so well, proved to be a very versatile design!

Have finished the next one today... it turned out nothing like my original sketch and is very simple. Can't wait to see what the girls do with this next one!!

Will load the steps over at MaD[ly]scrapping tomorrow...

Until next time, take care of you.

Get Challenged NOW!

I was challenged by the girls at SW {in a Get Challenged NOW! challenge we do} to do a LO using 3 shades of Pink, Buttons & NO Flowers... PINK & NO FLOWERS, isn't that a contradiction!?!

And then I got this idea:

I love my boy, he's such a legend to do this for me... dress up in pink all for the sake of a scrapping challenge. Really if this child of mine doesn't get into acting I'll be surprised, he's so good at turning on expressions!

Until next time, take care of you.

I did get some yummies in the post... I got this little kit from QTea, now is that cute or cute!!

"Q Tea kits are monthly, embellishment oriented scrapbooking kits with a difference - the majority of the contents are NOT commercial scrapbooking products. What you will get is a fun, creative selection of unique accessories, vintage finds, handmade items and funky fabrics. Love the quirky, arty side of scrapbooking?"

Cool hey... can't wait to get playing with these, I just love iddy bits and pieces that aren't the norm atm, I think these will keep my imagination flowing!!

And then I did get this {the hairpiece, not the girl}...

and this is me with it on because I simply can't help myself {not that you can really see it, but imagine okies}...

And yes... I do realise I'm a lost cause!

Until next time, take care of you.

Photo Tag 2

I was Photo Tagged again, this time by Donna... which is actually fine and dandy because I have my old PC again now! This time I've grabbed my 2008 Album and this is the 6th yadda yadda you all know the drill by now!

This is my most wonderful Jules {aka Popcorn or the Dizz, she is so going to slap me when she see's this I know it} at Chrissie's house, 14th June 08. I was invited over to learn the dark side... LOL, as in mixed media techniques. We had all sorts of fun with alcohol inks, paints, embossing powders, fusible webbing... I have learnt so much from these 2 wonderful ladies, who are always open to help a learner spread her wings, always up for a giggle and fabulous supportive friends!

This was the weekend after I got back from staying with Vicki in Brissy and meeting Donna & KarenB as well as Penny, Joy & Mary from SW... an amazing weekend. Looking back ,I think June last year was a pretty great month for me; bridges were well and truly mended, friendships reinforced, new things learnt, cyber friends meeting... so full of hope and promise!!

Until next time, take care of you.

... Silhouette,

... Son of Shadow

Silhouette {son of Shadow} has been running around our house since he was a teensy kitten, today he's come close enough for us to almost touch him. Apart from the short hair and one grey spot under his chin, he's an exact copy of our Shadow... who has obviously been busy {yes... he will be getting desexed once Dags gets over this 'thing' about taking away his precious baby's 'manhood'... men}!! He's also the only kitten of the feral lots of cats around here that actually doesn't mind us around, thinking there must be some genetic disposition of trust... or he's hungry LOL!!

Until next time, take care of you.

This last week I did a Step by Step for us at ScrapWitch. It was such fun!! This is my layout that was the sample and basis for the SBS instructions.

I had a LOT of fun doing this... am going to run another one next week as well, can't wait to share that LO... it's one of my FAVEs atm!!

I'm going to load the steps for this one over at my MaDscrapping Blog if anyone is wanting instructions... or pop on over to ScrapWitch to join in there!!

Another one...

Just one of Ma & Pa, rare I get a pic of them together!!

Weekend Scrapping...

Have had a mini scrapathon this weekend! Loving how it's all just happening nice and easy atm as well, must be all the mojo dust I have about the place!!

Walk This Way

The label on this one was from one of Kel's school shirts, kept them all because I love them!! Love my new Buzz'n'Bloom Alphas as well... these ones are called "Urban", perfect for Kel at this age!

My Favourite

A title for this one avoided me, then I decided it didn't need one... used a little tag with My Favourite on it instead. And she is, my fave neice... love her to bits, she's an adorable brat who loves to talk and loves cuddles when her brothers aren't running around!


All That I Am...

Me and mum, I love this pic... so does mum, she says we're starting to look alike and poor me... but to me that's such a compliment. I think once I drop all this weight I'll look much more like her... at least for once my sister can't keep telling me I'm adopted! Big thanks to Heather for the Chipboard Butterflies and Swirls, love it so much and am so glad I was able to use it for a special LO!! The scanner doesn't do this justice... it's full of shimmer and shine and is one of my fave's LO's atm!!


Penny set a sketch challenge @ SW and I got it done by the skin of my teeth, and with a lot of artistic licence as I do! So pleased at how it turned out... and I even won a prize for it, so excited as I've not been in the 'prize winning' world for a while!!

So I'm still scrapping away... well playing at scrapping, I had some mess to clean up first and have then been chatting and doing nothing much useful! Loving long weekends!!
