Where for art thou!!   It's really gone walkabout I think... hmmm Ms JenB, you still have it don't you!

Hoping it comes home tonight... today I taught a class at Tomorrow's Memories for the 2 Dusty Attic Dream Date winners Mabel and Jolande and their friends... such lovely ladies and such a great class.  Then I got to play with some Dusty [oooh some new designs, just wait until these are released - heaven]... soooo anyways, you would think that with all that creativity around me all day I'd be off and running.  Not quite, I'm hoping it's because it is too hot in our house.  Maybe tonight after the sun goes down.  

I did come home with some embossing powders and some glitter, so so so nice this glitter, it's by Alison Ellis {the glitter} and it's superfine... can't wait to see the house covered in it LOL!!  

Sigh... so I am surrounded with gorgeous things and no mojo.  Maybe I should just go decorate some Dusty and play, there's always mojo for that!

Take care of you.

Psst.... over here!

A little Red birdy told me that if you're looking to try your hand at being a part of the Creative Team at Red Earth Scrapping, then you might just want to keep an eye out in the forums because the search for a new CT member will begin on 16th January 2011.

Red Earth is a warm and friendly online shop & community, it's down to earth and filled with 'real' people {there are certainly no Diva's}!   As a CT member we are well rewarded and made to feel like we are an integral part of the business, Helen is fun, understanding, supportive and certainly not over demanding... it's definately the CT you are looking to be a part of!!

So join up, keep an eye out for the announcement and step up for your chance to join the Red Earth Team!

Take care of you.

Make Life an Adventure...

My feral nephews {but I love 'em}, aren't they the cutest though.  Both so different, so alive and so smart... likely too smart for their own good!!  Love this pic mum took of them, up a tree like kids should be!

This chippy was inked, painted, misted, then UTEE'd with Clear as well as an Iridescent Green, then dabbed with some Luminarte Daubers, sprayed with glimmermist while the UTEE was hot, and also some Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Powder added... I just love that the DA chippy can handle all those treatments and still hold together perfectly, because there are times I need to keep adding and adding until it's just the way I want it too look!

I have used: BoBunny Cambridge Papers, Dusty Attic Tribal Swirl, Websters Card, 7 Gypsies & Tim Holtz Metal Cogs, Carolee's Alpha Stickers and BabyFace Cuttlebug Font. 

Take care of you.


Have to say, I'm loving the new publishing thing here on blogger... BIG pics!

I created this for Tomorrow's Memories using the NEW Basic Grey Curio Papers, aren't they just DELISH!!  They'll be on the floor at TM's soon!

I also used some of the ever so sweet Dusty Attic Fancy Trim and Doilies, love the Daisy Scallop on these.

The chippy has been inked {TH Worn Lipstick & Vintage Photo}, painted {Adirondack Sandal} and sprayed with Pearl Glimmermist.  I'll be demonstrating the 'how to' technique on this for the special Dusty Attic Dream Date at Tomorrow's Memories next Tuesday, can't wait because it's going to be SUCH fun!

Other products: Part of a Websters Journal Card, Prima & Green Tara Flowers, Crochet Doily, Maya Road & Jenni Bowlin Pins, Zva Pearl Flourish, Prima Trims, Prima Pebble 

Take care of you.

Best of Times

Mojo has felt so low the last couple of weeks, it shows... but I have finally completed some work.  

This is one of my favourite pics from the H&S Retreat, myself, Kim, Angie & Susanne on the beach at Manning Point.  Such a lovely outing and I adored the wild waves at this beach... the breeze that rejuvenates and blows the cobwebs away.  Miss it just thinking of it!

I have used some gorgeous new Dusty Attic corners here... they reminded me of the waves and breeze, just perfect.
The chippy has been inked, dabbed with some paint and luminarte daubers, sprayed with glimmermist and then stickled.

Other products: Paper Loft and Kaiser PP's, KandCo Decorative Matt, BoBunny Trim, Prima Trim, Websters Bloomers, Kaiser Bling, Prima Flowers, TPC Studio Metal Accents, MayaRoad, Jenni Bowlin & Heidi Grace Pins.

Take care of you.

Circa 1934

Well 8/6/1935 to be exact!

This is my maternal grandmother on her 23rd birthday, the papers and chip embellishments are from Cosmo Cricket's new range - Circa 1934, with names like Bette & Garbo, they've got to grab your attention, I loved them.

Helen at Red Earth Scrapping sent me the range to play with for this months creative kit, telling me I'd love them and would have great fun... [it's so nice she knows me better than I know myself because at first, these bold patterns had me running in the oppposite direction]!

Yep definitely not the papers I would usually use, but they are perfect for this Hollywood Silver Screen era and now I have created with them... I am rapt with them and can't wait to create some more! They are truly gorgeous... and online images really don't do them justice! I totally adore that heavy damask/doily pattern on the black and cream... and there's a stunning mustard/cream one the same, mmmmm.

So, do yourselves a favour and go grab some, you won't be disappointed!!

Take care of you.
