The scrapping has begun!!

I am overdue with this card, so I couldnot wait to get into my scrapping. First one made in Melbourne. I love clusters of flowers, and thought I would try it on a card. It is amazing how you can take an idea from a layout and put it on a card or vice versa....... ahhhh papercrafting - so versatile!

Try this yourself. Take an idea from one of your layouts or cards and see if you can adapt it on the other, you may surprise yourself!

ME Layout

I created this Layout back in June. I really enjoyed doing this layout being my first double layout. I thought it would be a real challenge to ensure it flowed, and try to use an even bigger space for the one layout, but turned out easier than I thought.
I spent a great deal of time cutting out and layering the different papers with rub-ons and stamps. To keep the journaling a little more personal, I decided to do mainly hidden journaling, which you can see under the flaps.

A new Address!

Hi Everyone,

Sorry I have not been able to blog much on our travels, but I have some great news and that is that we arrived late last week in Melboune. We have been busy unpacking and today offically I have a scrap room, and larger than the one I had in Perth, so I have no excuses now!

I am looking forward to posting some new work up on the blog real soon, but until then I will post some work that was completed prior to the move.

Hope you enjoy them, and yes I will be blogging often once again, as long as I can keep up with my scrapping!

travel, work and stuff

Well we are still on our way to Melbourne, and we are having a wonderful break. We have seen so much and have at least finished a circle around Australia, even if it is not the complete big one!

Just got some news about my new job at Kaisercraft that I will be starting when I get to Melbourne that I will be starting with a fellow scrapper Alison. Can't wait. Only 20 days to go until we start. Alison is in Marketing and I am in Product Development, so we will be working really closely together.

Well, not to long to go till we arrive now. I miss my dogs and the cat and can't wait to see them, but enjoying the trip an absolute heap!!

Not long till I can get back into some SERIOUS scrapping!
