Lots of news

Well theres been heaps happening.

The Cyber crop at Scrap 'N Crazy was a blast. Too much fun. The challenges were fab and it was a laugh a minute :)

Lots more exciting things happening there too, so keep your eye out.

Has everyone seen the US blog called "Scrapjacked"?

If you havent go check it out. Why? Because I have decided to start up an Aussie version. Should be heaps of fun!

So each month there will be a talented Aussie scrapper selected and one of their LO's for you to scraplift. Prizes will be awarded for all sorts of criteria. Chelle at Scrap 'N Crazy has kindly offered to donate for the first one, and I am in the process of collecting more sponsors. If anyone reading this would like to donate, just let me know :)

Theres been lots of scrapping going on, but I cant share, all DT related :)

But I can share 1, and here it is.

This was one of the challenges at SNC's CC over the weekend. Love how it turned out. I didnt get much scrapping done, too busy chatting :)

I cant work out how to make a link, you know instead of putting www. blahblah its just the name, can someone please tell me how to do it? :)

Ok, bye for now, lots of organising to do ;)

I'm going......

BACK TO WORK!!!!!! For one half shift per week at the endoscopy clinic where I worked after having Aodhan. I got the call today, and I am just wrapped! Cant wait, my first shift is next friday morning. It's going to feel good to use my skills and knowledge, and get my brain working again.

Not much else has been happening. I got some scrapping done over the weekend, really pleased with these LO's. They were for the cyber crop at scrapworld (www.scrapworld.com.au). Spent more time chatting than scrapping....let me tell you, these girls are CRAZY! But heaps of fun, looking forward to the next one :)
This one was a single colour challenge. Pink obviously, really love the monochromatic effect. That chipboard flower is from the Bella sheets, they are really good girls, check them out at the reject shop.
This one was a use 7 different PP's challenge. I did it!!!!! Really like how this turned out.
I am slowly getting my very last page for the scrapapple 8 week challenge completed. I cant believe it will be over this time next week. There has been some really amazing work done, some very talented chicks out there. And my pick for the winner? Debbie Mullins, bet you she does :)
Dont forget that we are having a cyber crop over at scrap 'n crazy ( www.scrapncrazy.com.au ) next weekend the 23rd. Going to be heaps of fun!
And dont forget there is a lucky door prize for someone who registers to the forum before the CC too....it could be you!
And I can now reveal that my guest DT spot is with Scrappers Warehouse www.scrapperswarehouse.com.au
and they are looking for guest team members for June and July too, go check it out!
I have my pack and I am a bit overwhelmed by whats in it, we are talking HUGE! Should be able to scrap up a storm with this lot. I will let you all know when they are on display :)
Well, thats about it from me. I'm sure there was something else I had to tell, but I cant remember.
I am sorry that I havent really visited anyones blogs, will do a catch up tomorrow :)
AH! I remember now :)
I popped into my LSS on Saturday, was talking to Wendy and she mentioned that she would like for me to do some classes. COOL! I can do that :) She then also mentioned that she would love to organise a retreat, would I like to be involved? UM....YES PLEASE!!!!!!!!! That will be so much FUN! It will be an overnighter, somewhere in the Bacchus Marsh area and I will be teaching with Dawn Stan....hopefully :) I ant wait, that will be sooooooo much fun!
See, my brain does work sometimes, lol :)
Bye, and have a good one!

1 loss, 1 win

Well, my Idol journey is over, I didnt make it into the top 30. But I am not too disapointed. Just getting there in the first place is an acheivement I am VERY proud of. :)

But there are still 3 Aussies in the top 30...Chris Millar, Kylie Bailey and Stephanie Lim!!! GO GIRLS!!!!! Would love to see an Aussie WIN!!!!!!
So a HUGE thanks to everyone who liked my work enough to vote for me, I really appreciate it :)

And the blow was softened by some news I got last night too. I have won a competition to be a guest designer....cant say where yet. So stay tuned, I will let you all know as soon as I can.

I cant believe that next week is the last for the 8 week challenge. How fast has that gone?! I have loved every single challenge.
This is part 1 of the challenge this week. You had to do a LO about your fave scrapping product....mine is ribbons. I really enjoyed doing this and love how it turned out
Part 2 was to use your favourite product on a LO that includes a fave photo. I love this pic of Ciara, sweet cheeks. I love the ribbon flower I created too. I used a BG washer and tied the ribbons around it. I am in LOVE with thos Crate papers, that was the last of my stash....going to have to get some more!
I have another LO to share but will wait for another day.
Have a GOOD ONE girls!

Cyber crop

Hi girls!
Scrap 'n' crazy, where I am on the DT is having a cyber crop on the 23/24/25th of March. It is going to be HUGE! Great challenges, fabulous prizes, fun chat!

There is a special door prize for 1 lucky person who signs up to the forum and then participates in the cyberc crop. BUT, you need to sign up before March the 10th. So go get in there and sign up, YOU could be the lucky door prize winner!

I would love to see all of you there, its going to be heaps of FUN!!!!! :)

I have been busy scrapping.
This 1st one was a challenge set for the DT to do, 60:30:10 in the colours pink, red and brown. I shuddered when I saw the colour combo, but I now LOVE these colours together. Crookedpic of the LO as usual. lol
And this is one I did using the crate paper scraps. I am in LOVE with these papers and really do have to get some more! Love those American crafts thickers too. I am sure they have come out with some smaller ones in different fonts for CHA, so will be getting some of those for sure!
I also wanted to let everyone know that I am organising a patterned paper swap at scrapboxx. You need 10 sheets of unused PP, cut in half, send it to me and I will send you 20 half sheets of different PP. How cool is that. New PP for a couple of dollars post. And if you are anything like me, you have a heap of unused PP that you loved and just had to have, and have never used!
So either sign up at the boxx, or let me know here if you are not on the boxx and want to join in! The more the merrierer, and the more paper we can swap. I could seriously swap with 6 people! SERIOUS!
Well thats it from me. Be sure to come and sign up at scrap n crazy, would love to see you there!

What a debacle!

Whenever I am involved in something, things always seem to go wrong!

They have had major problems with the Idol entries, people couldnt see the entries to vote, people were credited to the wrong layouts. So MM have decided to compleyely restart the voting on Monday. I will let you know times and stuff then.

So, I just want to apologise to any of you who made time in their day to vote for me. Thankyou so much, and please dont feel as though you have to do it again, I feel so bad about all of this.

So I am allowed to display my entry, here it is in all its glory!

Very simple, but that is me. I decided to use MM papers, not because I wanted to suck up to them, but because I work well with those colours. I am really pleased with how it turned out, especially the little journalling book. It is 4 pages all up, 3 of them turn over. I attached them with Junkitz jump rings.
This will be the same LO that will be on display when the voting re-starts.
I am at my wits end with Aodhan. He is being so naughty. And it all because he is bored I reckon. He will be soooooo ready for Kinder next year, but because he is a July baby he cant go until the year after. So I am going to be finding out about 3 year old kinder.
He is spending so much time on the naughty chair having some time out. He pulls the seat cushions off the couches in the family room, so that Ciara can climb up. Its a fairly low step with the cushions off. And she loves it, little monkey. But I am petrified she is going to fall off. So I have asked him to stop doing that......but he just keeps going back for more!
He has also started answering back. If my Mother ever read this she would laugh herself into an early grave and say its divine retribution. You see, I was quite the little cow of a kid, and it seems Aodhan is going to be as well. But I was never this cheeky at this age. So his answer to everything is "NO", in a very cheeky voice.
So if anyone has any tips on how to deal with this, PLEASE let me know! He is driving me up the wall!!!!!!!!
Ok, better go. Chelle who is the Boss lady at Scrap 'n' Crazy, where I am on the DT, has challenged us to do a 30:60:10 LO in the colours pink, brown and red. I will explain the concept when I post the LO. And the colours? I was a bit dubious at first too, but let me tell you, they DO work!!!!!!! Will get that finished and post it for you all to see.
And thanks to all of you who are comminng to www.scrapncrazy.com.au and saying hi! We are so pleased to see you there. Please come and join in, there are some great challenges, and Chelle gives some great prizes. We are having a cyber crop on the 23/24/25th of March too, so keep that weekend free! Thats going to be heaps of fun, with some fabulous prizes up for grabs!
Ok, better go, have a good one!
