Rainbow Splendour SALE ....

It's nearly time for the last sale for the year!!!  It starts on Saturday 10 December 2011 and will go all weekend until Monday morning so heaps of time to have a browse and get your orders in :-) :-)

There is no craft market this month, so I will be holding the sale here on my blog and will also put a folder up on the Rainbow Splendour facebook page.  Make sure you head over and LIKE the page, I often do random giveaways just cos I feel like it :-) :-) :-)

This will be the last chance to get the Christmas range of goodies like ...

Christmas trees:

and Christmas doilies

And there will also be a few NEW things ....  sneaks will come soon :-) :-)

Encounters with the farm animals

Last week, my challenge at Scrapz.Biz was a sketch -

The theme was "Encounters with the Wild" so I scrapped about the kids meeting animals on the farm.  OK, so chooks aren't exactly 'wild' but they aren't that tame either!  LOL

How perfect is that Jillibean Soup pp for the background?!  All the rest of the papers are a mix of Crate Paper Farmhouse and Random

There is still time to play along - all the November challenges are due on 30th November.  And every challenge entry goes in the draw for store vouchers at the end of the month :-) :-)

Here's a sneak of my challenge posted today:

Have a great weekend :-) :-)

BITW - Trust

The new word at Bird Is the Word is TRUST.  There was lots of ways I could have gone with this.  In fact, I ended up leaving it till nearly last minute because I just couldn't decide!!
I decided to go the light hearted approach ... and scrap about this typical two year old impulsive belly showing  - in the middle of  trying to get a nice family photo :-) LOL.

I've used a Rainbow Splendour map pinwheel and a cabochon and sweet lollipop made by Leanne :-) :-) ...

Don't forget that you have a sketch for inpsiration if you would like to use it - although it is not a requirement.  Head over to the blog and see what the other DT members came up with :-) :-)

Have a great week and thanks for visiting :-)

It's beginning to look a little like ....


We had a photo shoot with LaBelle Photographics recently.  It was one of the best shoots we've had!  The kids were {quite} well behaved and willing ... and we did lots of fun stuff :-).  Linley does such a fantastic job, I am ALWAYS super happy with her photos :-).  I want to share a few here with you ... it's been a difficult job choosing, but here's a little sneak of our shoot:

I can't WAIT to scrap these ;-)

Watch out for a new blog header coming soon :-) :-) :-)

Summer rain

Would you believe, I haven't scrapped all month!!  I can hardly believe it myself, but between one thing and another, it just hasn't happened.

So ... since my blog is looking a bit lonely, here is a page I did last month, for the Manor House sketch challenge ...

The sketch:

And my page, using some pics of my two playing in puddles ...

A little feltie I've had in my stash for EVER!!  LOL

The Manor House flowers were a little bigger than I'm used to using.  But they are nice colours :-)


Well, I'm busy making up orders, packing orders and posting orders at the moment!!!  A big thank you to all those who have ordered!  The sale at the Scrapbooking Top 50 Craft Market is finished, but the November Rainbow Splendour products will be still be available through my blog here, see the Rainbow Splendour tab at the top of the page, or click HERE

Have a great week :-) :-) thanks for visiting :-) :-)

Here's a couple of sneaks:

Last week my challenge was a Scrap A Rainbow one ... the theme was "Up in the Sky" so I literally looked to the sky for my colour inspiration :-)
