Sorting and tidying ...

I have had a massive overhaul of all things scrappy in this house.  I think it's good to be reminded that scrapping does not have first place here in this family!!  :-)  It's so easy to get caught up in the creative moment, but yes, my family does come first :-) :-).  You've probably noticed that I am now only on 2 DT's - Scrapz.Biz and Lil' Red Rocket.  I resigned from Bird is the Word a couple of weeks ago.  It was a difficult decision, and I really loved being on the DT there - but my life is taking a different turn, and I love the fact I can concentrate on these two absolutely wonderful teams and I know I can give them both 100%.

Anyway, back to the sorting and tidying ...  

The Scrapz.Biz Biggest Loser competition has been going since the start of the year and it has been FABULOUS for organising tips and challenges to use up the stash!  My table certainly looks far tidier, things actually have a place to live, and I organised lots of bags I've had lying around.  To be honest, I think I've got just as many bags, maybe everything has just been reshuffled :-) LOL.

There is now a space BIGGER than a 12x12 page on my table :-).  DH says the table probably needs sunscreen since it hasn't seen the light of day before ... I'm not convinced :-)

So ... here's one of the last pages I created for the button challenge at Scrapz.

You can probably read the journaling there - I got an order to make 12 OTP handbag desk tidies ... lets just say that by the time I was finished, I really didn't want to see another handbag for at least a year LOL.

I have finally found a bit of mojo :-) after spending so much of my creative time catching up with my 52 week album, I am enjoying scrapping 12x12 again :-) :-).  Daily challenges are BACK at Scrapz now so I am busy creating for them :-).  I am loving this range ...

Another fabulous Echo Park range :-) :-)

Anyway, that's all for now, thanks for visiting :-) :-) :-)

Scrapz Biggest Loser

... is in full swing!!

It's been perfect for me to organise and sort through my scrap stash.  I don't have a lot of room for it, and to be honest, I'm so sick of how it looks so messy all the time.  So sick of how it makes the HOUSE look so messy all the time!! 

There have been lots of challenges to play along with - it all helps to use up that old stash that's been sitting for ages.

Here's a page and a card I created entirely from scraps

even the bits of ribbon were the last bits!

Super simple stuff - not much mojo happening around here. 

I have, however, been creating some RAINBOW SPLENDOUR goodies!!  Check out the page for a little sneak :-) (the Rainbow Splendour tab at the top of my blog, or go HERE)

Hope you are having a great week :-)

52 week catch up

It was my turn to post on the Lil' Red Rocket blog today and I had a few pages from my 52 week album (yep - from last year) to share ...

First up:
On the bike ...

I've used a cute little flag ...

(the denim banner is A Lil Somethin')

"New 'do"
A bath time mohawk ... LOL

On this page, the alphabet button and the twine are Lil' Red Rocket :-)

There is also a Rainbow Splendour pinwheel in there too :-)

Love twirling the twine like this ...

"Who needs toys"

Using another big button and a flag ...

And lastly,

Revisiting 2011

Before I begin scrapping this year (yep - no scrapping happening here yet!!) I thought I would revisit last year and pick out some favourites.  They may not be the best, but for whatever reason, I like them :-)

This one was way back in January -

 A White With One challenge ...

Love this colour combo - 

One of my bestie's beautiful baby :-)

 A wedding pic - (this would have to be my number one favourite for the year - with my number one favourite person on it :-) )

Using some Rainbow Splendour pinwheels :-) ...

One for my 52 week album -

More Rainbow Splendour ...

Bright colours! ...

One of my first pages for Scrapz DT ...

Well, I was going to do one favourite page per month, but I found that some months I didn't have a favourite page (or it's out to be published) and then in December, I only scrapped DT pages that can't be revealed until this month! 

I think my trends for the year were banners, clusters, twine and mist splatters ... I wonder what this year will bring?

Happy New Year to all - thank you so much for visiting my blog and for all the comments you have left - I appreciate every one :-).  Looking forward to a fun year of creativity ahead :-)
