...have a new Creative Team member ... ME!!! Exciting news hey!! I actually kept saying I wouldn't apply, but I did and now I have a new position to test my creativity :-). I am on the team with some very talented girls...check out the announcement HERE.

So, moving along now ... this was the page I did for the application sketch. "Hush" - the pic is of Dallas in the baby swing. He just loves it and so do I because it puts him to sleep :-)
Just HAD to scrap this photo of our Chubby little Santa!!!
And this one is another photo by Linley - Bethany reading to the teddies. Too cute :-)

Bit overcast here today, what better weather for scrapping :-)

Savvy page

Well, hope everyone had a lovely Christmas? We have been busy spending time with family etc, but I did manage to squeeze in a page:

The title is: "Having a wail of a time" (hehe).
It was for Emma's 54321 challenge over at Savvy....
5 or more rhinestones/pearls
4 lines of doodling
3 pp's
2 journal spots
1 photo
Just gotta love that pic! The one at the end of a photo shoot - just had ENOUGH!!! LOL.

Last one?

I think this is the last Christmas card I'll make this year (I keep saying that and then making more). Really love the non-traditional Christmas colours and the Rusty Pickle papers are just so gorgeous.
I am trying to get a page finished at the moment, but it has a mind of it's own and is being difficult. If and when I finish it, I'll post it up :-)

Hope everyone is having a great week and all ready for a fantastic Christmas day!!

Strawberry, chocolate and vanilla

Sound yummy? The theme for Inkurable Stampers this month was pink, brown and cream (or strawberry, chocolate and vanilla for the ice-cream lovers) - with, of course, at least one stamp. My grand idea was to make another shaker card, just because, well, I can't get enough of them really!! LOL!! I just needed an excuse to make another one!!

Here's what I came up with:
I have used the gorgeous Rusty Pickle papers and stamp. I have gone a little overboard on the strawberry part (oops) and the ric rac looks black in this photo, but I promise it IS actually brown.

That's it for now, hope everyone has a great day :-)

SUCH a cutie :-)

Here's a 'just because' page I put together quickly the other night. Yes, I DO do "just because" pages every now and!

Had fun with this actually :-) loving the very boyish papers and cars etc!

December Sketch

Just a quick post to share with you some December DT work at SOU. The sketch:
The card:
You can check out the other DT members pages and cards on the Scraps of Us blog. I have some more scrapping to share so stay tuned :-)

Bits and pieces

Thought I would squeeze a post in just so you know I haven't fallen off the face of the earth or anything! LOL! I have been busy the last couple of days and just haven't had a chance to update. Not that I have much to share either - I HAVE been scrapping, just nothing I can share yet ;-).

Anyway, here's a card I made with bits and pieces of Rusty Pickle and other extras from the lovely Tiff (thanks Tiff!!!)... it made a great male card.
I have got a stack of photos printed recently, so am itching to scrap them! Hope I find a few spare minutes here and there :-)

Hope everyone is having a great week!

I have finally got these completed and the last ones sent ------>
Just thought I'd be artistic and take a pic of a few of them to share :-). I had a lot of fun making them.

It's girl time!

I thought it was about time I did a girl page. LOL. So, here is a REALLY girly one! Pink, lace, flowers, butterflies, the whole works :-). Still love doing girl LO's :-)
It's for the December challenge over at What Is Old Is New. I fully intended to do their challenge last month, but didn't get there. Sometimes there just isn't enough days in the month!

Now, I'm trying to decide what to do next. Some more Christmas cards? An album for Bethany's birthday? More pages? Oh, I am just spoilt for choice :-) lol.

Here it is...

Here's the page I was working on yesterday... I think it's finished. LOL. I used the 1st December sketch over at Stuck?!Sketches. I really liked the sketch and might use it again for a page of Bethany.
Dallas seems so little in this pic - I think he was around 8weeks old. He is now a chubby 7.67kg and 16weeks old tomorrow! Time sure flies.

Hope everyone is having a great week :-)

Scrapping the boy...

Guess what? ------>
I have done some layouts at last!! YAY!! Seems a while since I scapped a page. Been busy with Christmas cards, OTP and other bits and pieces. So anyway, this is a page I did for Out Of The Hat's December's challenge. Criteria:
spots/dots (in pp and on ribbon)
handcutting (I cut out the stars from pp)
rubons (the word "BOY" and the blue star)
I just love these sort of challenges. And I have wanted to scrap about having BLUE in our house! After such a girly girl, pinks and all the girly extras, it's been so much fun having blue things :-). We just love "our very own little boy blue" :-).
I am in the middle of another page of Dallas too - it's just in the "Hmmm... is this finished?" stage. LOL. Stay tuned and I'll share when I'm finished :-).

A spare 5 minutes...

I took a few minutes spare and made these:
and this:
It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!
Sorry so short and sweet, I am in the mood to scrap and I haven't done a layout for what feels like ages now!
Have a great weekend :-)

A little gift...

Well, my baby is over 3 months old and I am still giving out his Thank You gifts :-). (how slack am I!!??) I made these fridge magnets for his grandparents.
Don't you just love those pics of Dallas?? (Linley's pics again!!) They were taken back when he was nearly 2 weeks old. The one of him with his hands crossed is just so cute. Don't they just grow up soooo fast. We have had a family photo shoot with Linley recently, so watch out for some family pics scrapped!! lol :-)

Christmas Shaker

December rolled around rather quickly! What better way to begin my December posts than with a Christmas project I have been working on lately ...... Christmas shaker cards!! The first one pictured here is featured on Scraps Of Us and the step-by-step tutorial is going up on Saturday at 7pm if anyone is interested.
Then, I had to make another one since I was on a roll ... lol
They are easy and fun to make - check out the tutorial and see for yourself :-).
Thanks to everyone for taking the time to pop by here and for those who leave lovely comments too :-) much appreciated :-)
