Baby Update...

Well, I'll start by staying that I have not had a good time over the last couple of days. I have been experiencing some really bad pains (not to scare anyone), but as a result my doctor has ordered rest, so off from work for a couple of days, and off for another ultrasound. So today I went off for my ultrasound, and all is well with bub... just must have stretched or pulled something - but will see the doctor tomorrow regarding that anyway. Bub's due date is still within one day, so nice to see that at this stage I am not going to be delivering an overly big baby... Got to see HEAPS of detail this time, bub's lips were even moving!

The nice part of it all is that we got to see our bub again, so I thought I would share this photo with you all....
At this stage I think off this photo bub looks like hubby. We will have to see if this turns out to be true in time! Promise to show some photos of the growing bump soon!

Door Name plates

I was recently asked to do some door plates for the little boys that are dear to me. I really enjoyed the challenge of doing some 'boy' themed scrapping, as I usually love to use flowers and bling as embellishments.

I also used some new Kaiser products that have recently been released. I especially love the bling and pearl strips. They are just so versatile, you can use them in a straight line or curved and you can cut them to whatever length you like. They go across the full length of the page which is really cool.

I have been asked to do a few more of these door plates, and I must say I really enjoy doing them, it is great to be able to do something so personal for someone! Hope you like them. These ones have been created using Kaiser products which are in store now...

Sorry had to remove these pic.'s hope to have them back here soon!

Twiddleybitz Challenge

I thought I would share the projects I completed for my Twiddleybitz challenge. I really enjoyed playing with the goodies I was sent to get some of my scrapping done. These products are just so easy to work with and look really effective on your projects, so you will have to give them a go. If you store does not yet stock Twiddleybits, let them know about them and see if they can get some in.

I did this layout of my dog Molly. I had not yet scrapped her and well it was about time!!
This mini album was created using Twiddleybitz's acetate butterfly album and various twiddleybitz pieces, of a weekend we had away with friends in Guilderton with is about one and a half hours north of Perth. One of our favourite holiday spots!
This is a card I created using one of the many twiddleybitz goodies I was sent to use on the projects. They are an easy way to jazz up a card.

New Design Team pieces for Tomorrow's Memories

I have FINALLY finished some new projects that I have created using my design team pack from Tomorrow's Memories. I was given the Granola Range from Basic Grey to work with. I have some papers, embellishments and the die-cut sticker sheet that comes with the range.

I made these two layouts first with photos from my wedding (must get these wedding photos scrapped before the baby comes), and I desided to make up some cards using the left overs from my pack.

If you are in Western Australia and you would like to see them for real, pop into Tomorrow's Memories (See link for how to get there), they will arrive there later this week.
