Layout for SIA

Hope you are having a good week.

Earlier this year I was asked to submit a Layout for Twiddleybitz for the competition at SIA. I realised I had not shared this one on my blog.... so thought it about time. It is another for my wedding album that is slowly getting done. I have used some yummy twiddlybitz pieces (of course!!) and Basic Grey paper.

I struggled at the the time to get it done as I couldn't find my mojo... but it is amazing what a deadline will do... mojo was found and Layout done in a night!

Austin update

Today my little man is 4 months old, so I made sure I took some photos of him. He is smiling more and more each day. Tonight it was like he had the smiles and giggles for about 2 hours! Such a pleasure to have this much happiness in the house.

Well I thought I would share some of the photos I took today. Look out for them in upcoming projects!

Happy Birthday Leonie

The other weekend I found this cool template for my Pazzles, and well I thought I would make some to give to friends for their birthdays! Saw this idea a while ago on a friends blog and when I saw the template I just couldn't resist....

Well I got a chance today to get started and today it is one of my friend's birthdays so she is the first to receive one!

I will be seeing her tomorrow... hope she enjoys it.

New stuff and apologies...

Ok well first of all I must apologise for not updating my blog over the last few weeks. After having a sick little bub for a week and a half - I simply fell behind on SO much stuff including my scrapping and updating my blog.
I have been busy over the last 2 weeks catching up and getting some projects done, and can I say I have REALLY enjoyed my scrapbooking the most in AGES!! I think it has been the challenge of doing male layouts of my little boy. Trying to think a little more outside the square when it comes to embellishments as well as trying to use different elements of a paper range to provide more of the embellishing on the page.

So over the next week I will share the projects that I have completed recently... I hope you enjoy looking them as much as I have had creating them. And also some pic's from by birthday that I celebrated yesterday.

I will start the week with some Design team stuff I have done for Tomorrow's Memories that will be sent off tomorrow morning. I enjoyed using the "Little Monster's' paper range by Daisy Bucket SOOOOOmuch that just can't wait to share what I came up with. Probably not surprisingly seeing that it is one of my favourite brands of paper.

I have not been a person who likes to scrapbook with really bright colours, but I do have a soft spot for orange when it is incorporated into a bright coloured paper range. I made 3 layouts and 2 cards which will be arriving in Perth by the end of the week (I am hoping... - c'mon Australia post!!). They have a bit of dimension to them so if you want to see the full effect you'll have to pop into the shop and check them out!
