Well that was yesterday, but I hope you had a great day anyhow!
Lots to share today!! First up..... My first LO's for the Scrapsidaisy Design Team Yaaaay!!!! These kits are available from Scrapsidaisy and are full of goodies, you can choose to do your own LO's or maybe use mine for inspiration. Here is what I done with my pack!!
No 1 Miss Lilli, with her favourite dolly!
A card, made from some leftover scraps. (Plenty of leftovers for cards)
And No 2 LO... Miss Lara.
Thats all for the design team!! Up next.....A copycat card!! A card challenge over on the Scrapsidaisy Forum. The criteria for the challenge...Use floral PP, some felt, brad/s or button/s, cotton or string and a punch or diecut. Here is my card!!
The next LO, I done the challenge over at Scrap the Girls. This is the first time I have done one of the challenges, but I quite often visit the blog for inspiration!! The challenge was to design a page with the sketch provided. Here is my effort!! LOL
I should have put this one on later, I have used some techniques that I learned at the Scrapsidaisy Roundup a few weekends ago. I done two classes with the especially talented Michelle Grant. I embossed the background with a cuttlebug folder and a crayon, a very cool trick lol. I also made the little star in a similar way but used heat embossing as well.
So here is the second LO that I we done with Michelle. ( Yes I always seem to load the pictures up in the wrong order) It is just gorgeous and is my new favourite!!! There is so many little features on here, and some of the great techniques I mentioned before!! Lots of cuttlebugging!!
The first class I done at the roundup. A double, I don't very often do those!! and so many photos, I love the amount of photos on here!! The wheel turns so you can look at the photos the right way up, so clever!! This was Michelles class too. Thanks for sharing your talents Michelle!!!
So thats all for today, a big share from me!! Back to school tomorrow for Lilli, Year 1! Wow kindergarten went so fast!!!
Any how thanks for looking!!

My Exciting News....

I have been chosen on the Scrapsidaisy Design Team!!! I am so excited!!! I have received and completed my first pack, but you will have to wait until after our Roundup Retreat (!!!!!!!)to see those ones.
I do have a couple of others to share though.
No 1 was for the challenge on the Scrapsidaisy Forum. So you had to use the colour red, a title starting with the letter 'O' and do some distressing of some kind!! I love how it turned out! I quite like challenges, they help me to think outside the square sometimes!! And No 2 is Little Moo. Ryan called Lara little moo whenever she had this suit on, it's so cute!!
The colours are different on this one, not what I would usually use for a girls LO. But I love it just the same!!
Thats all the scrapping news I have at the moment. I am still enjoying the school holidays. We were pretty busy for the first few weeks. Ryan has gone back to work now though so life is slowly returning to normal. It felt like we were all over the place!!!
Best go hang out the washing while the sun is shining!!
Thanks for looking.

Happy New Year!!!!

Well I hope you had a safe and happy new year! I did, didn't make it to midnight on NYE but had a good night anyway. We have been for a holiday to Sydney. We stayed with a friend for 4 nights, we went to the aquarium, which is so awesome!!!! We spent the rest of the day wondering around Darling Harbour, it is so great there. I have not done that before. Lilli had a great day. We went on a giant ferris wheel that was fun and a little scary LOL. I am glad to be home though, it feels like we have been gone for a month!!!
So anyway, I have a couple of pages to share.
No 1 is of Ryan, with his winning scratchie although he did not win the major prize LOL. He was excited anyway!!!
No 2 is a Fathers Day LO. A little bit late (ok alot) but I don't scrap in any particular order, I just like to do it when inspiration comes to me LOL. I love the nook and pantry PP from Basic Grey. I also used some raw chipboard thickers. I inked them pink then sprayed them with pearl glimmermist. I love that stuff!!!!
I do have another LO finished but I need to take a pic and upload so I will share that soon and also some other exciting news!!!
I hope your new year is a happy and healthy one.
Thanks for looking.
