All things girly ..

OK, I'll admit it, I love pink!  In fact, I love this Lil' Red Rocket felt flower so much, I totally based this page around it :-)

So much to love:
(based on the Kraft It Up Feb challenge)
Here's a close up of the gorgeous felt flower:  The star paper doilies and the flower cabochons are LRR too :-)

Next up, I played with some Crate Paper Heart that I was lucky enough to have given to me!!!  Love it! 
(Based on the Scrap The Girls Feb challenge)

Once again I've used LRR star paper doilies (these are my fav if you can't tell LOL!) and there's a little birdy button tucket in there too :-).  Love the look of bright colours with raw chipboard.

Well, that's all for now, thanks for visiting!  Have a great week :-)

An Aussie Christmas

An Aussie Christmas means Christmas in the summer ... water fights
ice cold drinks
all that fun stuff :-)

This was a recent page for a challenge at Scrapz.
A Christmas page using October Afternoon Sidewalks range :-).  Photo is from our Christmas photo shoot at LaBelle Photographics ... it was actually a hot day when we had the shoot - not that you can tell :-).  Just love this setting with the stockings hanging from the hearth (which we moved outside!) FUN!!!

Just before I go, here's a little sneak of a challenge I posted in the Scrapz forum yesterday ... it's a Scrap Write Now challenge which focuses on journaling :-).  Head over and check out all the details HERE :-)

That's all for now, have a great day!!

It's SALE time :-) :-)

EDITED TO ADD on Saturday ALL SOLD OUT ... thank you for your support :-) :-)

EDITED TO ADD on Friday 10 Feb at 1.15pm:  Due to volume of orders I have received, any orders after this time will experience longer than usual 'making time'!  My apologies for this, but I will work as fast as I can :-).  Orders may take up to the middle of next week to be posted.  Thanks again for all your support, I am totally over the moon with the response :-) :-)

Good evening and welcome to the FIRST Rainbow Splendour sale for 2012 :-). Thank you for popping in :-) ... just a reminder that the sale will last until Saturday night at 7.30pm QLD time ... so there will be plenty of time to have a look around :-). The products this time are a mix of some select 'old favourites', lots of NEW and REINVENTED goodies and my Sweetheart Valentine range :-).

Please browse through the items for sale and if you would like to buy some goodies, email me with your order.
With your order, please include:
- your name and address
- how you want to pay (Paypal or Direct Deposit)

I will then get back to you with your total.  This time, for the first time, I do have only limited amounts of SOME felt colours ... but if/when I sell out, I will let you know :-).

Postage will be actual cost - and I'll let you know when I reply to your order. I'm finding that orders are mostly costing $1.20. Orders over $25.00 will have free postage :-). International postage will start at $4.00.  Payment is required within 3 days of your order confirmation.

Lil' Red Rocket ... and more ...

These are a couple of the last pages from my 52 week album from last year.  I shared these on the Lil' Red Rocket blog today as they are loaded with LRR goodness :-)

First up is one of our Christmas Traditions - the annual Christmas photo shoot (with LaBelle Photographics)

A couple of Rainbow Splendour pinwheels there!  {Don't forget the SALE on THIS THURSDAY 9th Feb ... right here on my blog :-) }

These cute vintage Santa bottle tops make me smile :-)

A close up of the yummy LRR twine - perfect Christmas colours :-)

Next is a page about my DD's last day at kindy ... yes, I did have a few tears in my eyes, but her teacher was crying ... so what hope did I have!!!  LOL

She loved kindy so much, but loves school even more now ... because she get's to do "work" :-).  She's practically begging for homework ... I just wonder how long it will last ... LOL.

Here's a close up of the gorgeous LRR denim/pink flower ... along with the purple spotty button, the star doily (one of my favourite LRR products ever) and of course, the twine ...

Just before I leave, here's a little sneak of the challenge I posted today on at Scrapz:

That's all for now, thanks for visiting!  :-)

Here is one of mine, using a photo from our Christmas photo shoot last year with LaBelle Photographics :-)

Love that the colours of the pic matched the Echo Park Season's Greetings kit so well ... (don't you just love that little red chair Miss B is sitting on!!!  :-) )

Lots of goodies from the store ...

There's always lots of inspiration and challenges happening on the forum ... the DT post challenges every day! :-).
