Almost the end of the month... again!!

But that means...

Tomorrow's Memories is open this SUNDAY!!

The Old Perth Road Markets in Bassendean are on again from 9am until 2pm... and Tomorrow's will be as well. I LOVE scrap shopping on a Sunday, and what better fun than teaming it up with a stroll through the markets... look at these:

Looks like fun to me... and those cupcakes, seriously if the best little scrapshop in Perth doesn't get you down there on Sunday, those cupcakes surely have too!!

Maybe I'll run in to you there...

Take care of you.

I did these a few weeks ago for a comp at Inspired Crafts... a fabulous comp {an ultimate prize up for grabs... sigh} there were some fabulous entries. So wonderful to see so much talent out there in Perth, and all different as well.. something for everyone.

Anyways, I didn't win {but my card that isn't up here yet got 2nd, pretty cool since I don't 'do' cards and you should have seen the workmanship in the winning card, stunning}... but that means I got to bring these home...

This pic was taken in our back yard on Aug, Friday 13th. I let Coco out for her morning business, walked inside and then not 10 minutes later this amazing thick fog descended, changing the whole landscape... I loved it and am so rapt the photograph shows it!

Naturally my FAVE Dusty Attic Bare Tree was used again... I know you guys might be sick of seeing it, but I'm not... I love it! Teamed it in with some other Dusty bits - one of the Scrolls and the ever too cute Mini Ornate Frame, some bling, some flowers... couple of butterflies... all my faves!

And this is my OTP entry... isn't that Bird House CUTE! I've had it for months... sitting there doing nothing, so at least the comp got me working on it, because I just know it would still be sitting there unloved if not for the push to create something.

And yes... I got IN the tree to photograph this... I thought it was a great idea, until my hair got all tangled up in the branches and Darren had to untangle me, telling me no no, it was fine my hair wasn't tangled... nooooo explain the twig hair nest look that greeted me in the mirror huh!?!

So... back to the grindstone tomorrow. I have had a lovely weekend though... lots of creating, chattering, we'll ignore this morning's migraine because overall it was a good weekend! We got our tax sorted, I'm almost caught up on all my DT commitments {just one more LO that I want to do for Red Earth and I'm up to date woohooo}, I have an idea well and truly brewed for a new class at Tomorrow's Memories {thanks Jo for co-incidentally having the perfect chippy frames there at the right time, got to love that}, I created a sweet as embellishment class for a special shop over east that I'll be visiting in October {hehehe, secret squirrels for now} and have started hunting and gathering all the bits I need for my Memory Book I'm helping the Home & Scrapped girls with at our Retreat next month... squeeeee, next month can't believe after over a year of planning it's almost time to get on the plane!!

So... yes, a good weekend... I'm tired & worn-out from too many late nights and busy days... but so blessed to have some lovely people in my life that help tire me out in the nicest possible way!

Take care of you.

Scrapping away...

I've been playing at Red Earth's CC this weekend... we may only be new, but we've got some good challenges happening!

This is mine... naturally a flower challenge... LOVE my flowers!!

I used the oh so girly sweet Girls Paperie papers and embies as well as some 7 Gygpsies PP for this, love them so much but rarely get a chance to play with them.

And I snuck another challenge in there while Helen wasn't looking, she hasn't caught me yet hehehe, the benefit of a 2 hour time difference LOL!! This was to be inspired by Simon & Garfunkel's "Feeling Groovy"... I've been humming and singing it all day...

This uses some new Prima, from the Annalee range and new 7 Gypsies Conservatory PP's... and more yumola Dusty!

And I did this last night... using mmmm yummy new BoBunny Cambridge papers, and heaps of Dusty bits!!

That's all for now... hoping I get Susanne's card challenge done tomorrow... and whatever evil challenge Helen has up her sleeve!!

If you're looking for some challenge fun, pop on over to Red Earth and check out the Cyber Crop Forum... would love to see you there!

Take care of you.

... what ya been doing?

I've been scrapping... lucky me! Okay, so I always scrap... but not so much lately. Between being sick, stressing over Kel and injuries or Kel and school, way stressing over work {not going to go there yet}... so with all the stress in my life the mojo walked out on me. Bastard... up and left me in the lurch just when I needed it most, never realised that mojo was male {luckily not my male, he's so in the good books right now}.

But finally... after 4 weeks, I feel better... and scrapped on Saturday after a marathon quoting day at work. I had whirlwind Kit Up for tonight's class on Saturday morning, thankfully with some help from Vicki... flew into work, did 282 quotes, came home rather comatose and got a phone call... Tina: "Hi, what you doing?" Me: "Nothing." Tina: "Cool, I'm coming for a cuppa with my scrap tote." and you know what... that was just what I needed, forced relaxed and play time... and I did. I relaxed and I played and that slurry of a mojo came home!!

So I caught up with my DT layouts for Tomorrow's Memories... this one only 4 weeks late {I'm still so embarrassed}, but I'm rapt with the result.

Just one of my fave pics of Kel, from last year actually... but the photo was perfect for the papers I felt. The papers are Kaiser {noice hey} and the chippies Dusty Attic.

And this one for Tomorrow's as well which is mega on time as Vicki gave me the papers on Saturday and it's in the shop today {had to redeem myself somehow LOL}. Love this one... the Basic Grey Basics papers are quite simple and boyish, perfect for me... but me being a fruitcake decided I was going to girlify them... I think I did! This is Lisa and I on her 31st, yeah I've scrapped it before... but I love this pic of us! It was a great night, Miss Lisa we need another one, although I guess we should save it for my 2nd 21st!!

Ahhh so... scrapping for Tomorrow's is done, I am satisfied, and this mojo had better stay put or there will be temper tantrums.

Sunday I had plans out and about with Dizz and Lisa... they all got a bit thrown out for unavoidable reasons, Dizz couldn't make it {missed you!}, then mum had things to do... but Lisa was needing to avoid housework, so invited me for lunch as well as a cuppa and we have a lovely few hours nattering away... so nice, although we need a night of jellyshots and other concoctions sometime soon I think, fun fun!!

And today... seriously, work was far too much for me today. There were even some tears. I'm working on a huge tender... if we win this it will be AWESOME for Scott's, so we're all trying... we're all doing whatever we can to get this happening. Today after 420 quotes {today's and Saturday's work... that's a LOT of quotes for those not in the industry}, they moved the goalpost on us and changed a figure... meaning... yes, 420 quotes need to be altered. I did cry, just a couple of tears... but I don't cry about work, I simply deal with the drama and move on... today I couldn't do that! Anyways... I'm fine now... we will all work together and get it moving, it will be done and done well, eventually.

Tonight I had a class at Tomorrow's Memories as well... yes, doesn't rain but pours. BUT, thank goodness for this class. It was so easy-going and fun... I came home refreshed, happy and calm, so good for the soul! Thanks ladies... today you were my saviours!!

Tomorrow's Memories Classes for October / November are already in the shop and booking up FAST if you're thinking of joining in! I have both an Angel Mobile and a Treasure Box class coming up... and there are some stunning LO's and a gorgeous Christmas Wreath as well, not to mention the cards... so so nice... they're all so pretties!

I have more things to share... just have to get them photographed and they'll be up, now to find some of that "time" thing again!

Until next time,
Take care of you.
