Some VERY exciting news to share

Ok, so it has been killing me not to put this up on my blog straight away, but I thought that today would be a nice day to share my news. There has been a reason I have not done as much scrapping and blogging aside from everything else I have had going on. I have had a heap of morning sickness (but gee wish it was only mornings!) cause I AM PREGNANT

Andrew and I are really happy and can't wait for the bundle of joy to arrive. Today I had my first scan and it went really well. I thought I would share a photo from the ultrasound today. We couldn't believe how clear it was and how much the baby was moving around. A truly amazing experience to share for the first time.

Happy Birthday Ashleigh!

I did this card last week for a very special Birthday Girl. Ashleigh turned 3 last week, and so I thought I would make a cute and personal card for her. I used some of the Dancing Jewel Papers from KC. Gotta love this range... SOOOOO Pretty.

It is a little hard to see from the photo, but I used some stamped on acetate (gotta love stazon!)for an extra bit of dimension, and of course some bling pearls and an epoxy brad to match the paper.

DT Projects

Last weekend on my retreat I decided to utilise the time to get some much needed scrapping done... OF COURSE. I had my Design Team packs, so I thought what better time to get them done. Here is a sneak peak of 2 finished works.... I will post a full photo when they have made it to WA. Until then, here is a sneak peak!

I got some really beautiful papers to work with and I am hoping to get at least another layout done. As you will notice the first is a Christmas themed piece (yes I am already getting into the festive mood). I just thought that the Collections tiled frame (well that is what I have called it) really leant itself to a Christmas theme. Hopefully the girls like it.
The second one is using some really beautiful Dream Street papers and wood embellishments. I have also used a HEAP of Swarovski crystals on this one, I just COULDN'T RESIST!! They are just so dazzling.
I will let you all know when to pop into the shop to check them out.

An exciting package & Retreat

I had a package to pick up on Wednesday, that Andrew kindly went to get from the post office, as I don't get home from work in time to make it. I was so excited to get home that night and see what goodies Tomorrow's Memories had sent me. My design Team packs were really awesome as well as the other goodies that were in there!

Thanks girls, can't wait to get stuck into it.

I am off to my first Scrapbooking retreat tonight organised by Scrapbook Junction - Sunbury. Can't wait, hopefully I will have some new stuff to share with you all next week! That is if I can get more scrapping than chatter done!

Have a great weekend everyone, I know I will!!

Best Friends Movie Time

I made this mini album recently to hold all the movies my mother and I used to watch together when I was young.

I have 3 brothers and every Sunday when my Dad took them to play soccer, my mum and I would sit down and watch a Shirley Temple movie followed by another old classic on the 'Golden Years of Hollywood'

I really looked forward to our Sundays, and I will always cherish these movies and the time we shared together.

My Birthday

While we were travelling, I celebrated my Birthday at a really small town that takes 400kms of 4WD road to get to. All there is there is a pub and caravan park. This being the case, there was no option for a birthday cake on my special day.

Having arrived in Melbourne 3 weeks ago, we have been so busy with heaps going on, that we still had had no chance of celebrating it.
On Monday however, when I got home from work my lovely husband Andrew was busy making me a birthday cake. It was a real surprise, and just when I least expected it. It was the most beautiful chocolate cake with chocolate bits through it. It was beautifully moist and cooked to perfection! He even decorated it after dinner, and well I just thought it was the best.

Thanks hubby for a lovely birthday surprise!

Just stuff....

Ok, so I have seriously neglected my blogging.... but I have good reason. I have just started my new job at Kaisercraft, and gee am I loving it. The people are SO nice and I get to be involved in an industry that I love SO MUCH!!

I have had a bit more sorting of the scrapping desk or should I say desks, as one of the plus' of moving is that I now have a bigger scrap area which consists of 3 desks. LOVING IT!! Just got to get some scrapping done now!

Work has given me a project to do, so I am pretty excited about that, just hope I do a good enough job of it now! It will be done with some of the new papers (not yet released) and they are just DEVINE!! If I am allowed I will put a sneak peak up here when it is done, and a full one when it is published.

I have also been asked about the aprons we made for Scrap it that I didn't have photos of.... but have now that I have my CD of the photos taken on the day. The 5 of us decorated these in the effort to win 'Best Dressed' which we were sucessful. You will have to check out my entry on this back in August for all the info of the day and a photo of the 5 of us. But here is the photo of my apron in a little more detail
