September Kraft It Up Challenge

4:54 PM Edit This 11 Comments »
Here is my entry for the September challenge over on the Kraft It Up blog. This month we had to use a picture for inspiration and Kraft of course!! You can check out the challenge here.
I was inspired by the colours, I added a banner on there and I have 2 little girls playing together instead of boys.
I used a few old pp's for this LO, some Kaiser and My Minds Eye. A cuttlebug title and some hand made flowers. I used some of the new Kaiser tiny alphas, they are awesome!!
Here is a close up of the letters aren't they tiny!! I love them, I got mine from Scrapsidaisy.
Annnnd something totally unrelated to scrapping, TIM MCGRAW!!!! I have had my tickets to his show in Sydney since May and have waited so patiently (well most of the time) to go and see him. It finally rolled around on Tuesday and was more than worth the wait, so so awesome!!! (yes that's 2 so's) We were super lucky in Sydney, Faith Hill came out and sang I Need You with him, OMG I have never screamed so much in my life!! I am surprised I have a voice at all!!
Well that's my news for the week, I have a couple more LO's to share just need some pics. Will do that soon.
Thanks for looking

Bring on the Bling projects!

Last Saturday I went to Scrapsidaisy's 12 hour scrap day Bring on the Bling!!
I had such a great day, it was nice to have 12 hours just for me.
Here are the beautiful classes we participated in while we were there.
A big thanks to Jules, Mel and Lauren for being our teachers, also to the wonderful friends who made the day fun!! A big thanks also to Leisa for organising the whole day!!
This was Jules' class, a beautiful book that we can fill with precious memories.
Mel's class was this beautiful wall hanging, we only made one on the day but I wanted to make another one for Lara.
and Lauren's gorgeous LO, very cool!! We learned a great new technique for including fabric on LO's.
and that's about it!!
Lots of pretty, sparkly goodness!!

A birthday card

6:51 AM Edit This 2 Comments »
Just a quick post today.
I just wanted to share this birthday card I made for sisters M.I.L.
I used Cosmo Cricket PP and also some Prima for the paper flower and Prima bling!!Kaiser wooden leaves and lace and some gorgeous little roses, all available at Scrapsidaisy.
The butterfly I cut out on the cuttlebug and glued some microbeads on to match the little roses. I stamped the sentiment and then clear embossed it. Just a little disappointed with the sentiment.
Anyways, I am looking forward to spending some time with some scrapping friends today, Scrapsidaisy are having a 12 hour crop, Bring on the Bling, should be lots of fun!!
Thanks for looking and thank you for your comments I ♥ them.

I used Echo Park, Sweet Summertime, for the challenge at Scrapsidaisy this week. The challenge was set by Suzi this week and we had to use a brides good luck charms, something old, something new something borrowed, something blue. I have used an old Kaiser rubon and also some bling, some new PP, I borrowed a Pagemap and there are a few blue things on there.
Isn't the paper gorgeous!! Scrapsidaisy also have the Life is Good and Walk in the Park ranges available here.

And I am very excited to say that I won a prize for my Kraft It Up entry last month, wooo hooo!! Thank you to the sponsors, WIOIN, for my voucher!!! There were so many gorgeous entries, to have mine chosen as a winner is just awesome. Thanks again :)
That's all from me tonight. I'm sure I will be back one day soon with more to share.
Thanks for looking

Back aleady!

This one started out as my LO for the weekly challenge at Scrapsidaisy, but didn't end up quite meeting the criteria. But that's ok, I love how it has turned out. I used a Pagemap, some Kaiser Up Up and Away and Prima bling. I made the flower out of some lace and a cuttlebug title. My cuttlebug has been getting a work out lately!!
The photos are from when I was pregnant with Lilli, way back in 2003. My face looks pretty tired and puffy, but they are special.
Here is a close up of my lace flower.

A bit late....

I have just realised I haven't posted my LO for the latest challenge at Scrapsidaisy. I thought I had better since it is almost time for the next one!
This weeks challenge was set by Mel and had to be about water. It also had to have some misting, inking and bling on there too. All done!!
I have used Kaiser PP and bling, I stamped my title then cut it out and I made the pink flower. I used the very last drop of my Pink Taffy glimmermist :( So sad, I loved that colour. And just a little bit more stamping as well. Love the face Lil is pulling in this pic!!
I have another LO to share but it will have to wait until tomorrow, I forgot to get a photo of it today.
Thanks to the lovely ladies who left me a comment on my last post, my blog feels loved :)

P.S. You know when you run a spellcheck that bling comes up as a mistake, c'mon now as if that's not a proper word LOL
