Some more creations for Bev's Cross Craft.

Well first of all I have to say how lucky I feel, being able to design for Bev at Bev's cross craft. I have been shopping there for the past ummmm 6 years or more and love all the girls there. Bev has spoilt me lately with some gorgeous papers and embellies to play with. I just need to find more time to create, really is a bugger that my real jobs gets in the way lol.

Well the first couple of shares I have been playing with Simple Stories Collection- 24/Seven. I so love this range and the colours are amazing. I have also just discovered Inka gold, WOW I love it!!! You can alter chipboard and wood so each and it covers everything, So with Inka Gold in you stash you can have chipboard alpha to match any page, just by altering with your Inka gold- Check it out!!

Well here they are.....

And the next two I have created using Echo Park- Scoot collection. I love the primary colours in this range, they are soooo gorgeous and perfect for the little fellas is your life. I must say I really enjoyed making these ones, keeping them simple. I love for people to go into Bev's store and see what I have created and think 'I can do that'. I would love nothing more than to inspire others to get started in this awesome craft. With all the yummy papers and lots of pretty things to play with. But more importantly documenting those moments for future generation to see. This is why I do it, you can look back on some of your old pages and cringe, BUT the story is still there. Already My Children and nieces love to look at My scrapbooks and say is that me?, Who's that?

Well all these pages feature heavily my young fella, So maybe some girly pages are due, It's really had with these great ranges though, Maybe some girly pages with these papers, hmmmmmm we will see what happens.

Thanks for stopping by, And if you happen to live local or are visiting Tassie and around the North- West coast. Do your self a favour and drop into the new bigger, better and truly fantastic store at Bev's Cross Craft- 72-74 Mersey Main Road, Spreyton.

Thanks for coming to visit, I'll be back soon, I have a scrap date with a Sister next weekend so guaranteed some scrappy goodness coming soon.

Scrap the Girls- May Challenge

Hi Ladies,
Who's ready for a new challenge at Scrap the Girls?!!! This month we have a gorgeous saying to be used on a page about a special Girl in your life.  I absolutely loved this saying and it went great with My Daughter at the moment, she is going through the trying times of being a teenager with her skin. As a Mother you can only hope that your girl will have beautiful clear skin,but more common than not it's not that way. We have found a great place with great staff in Facebar, a local store and already the results are amazing.

Anyway drifting away...... I wanted to do this page of My daughter and how fitting is the saying.....
A smile is the best makeup a girl can wear
This is not a great picture, But I really loved how it all came together. This page is now sitting in my local Scrapbooking store. Give it ago I am sure you have the perfect photo to go with this gorgeous saying. Entries to be linked up to Scrap the Girls by the 5th June. Lets see if we can make it to 30 entries this month.
Happy scrapping and looking forward to visiting you to see what master pieces you have put together....
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

I am still creating for my even closer local scrapbooking store Bev's Cross Craft. The store has move to a gorgeous bigger building, even closer to me in Spreyton. I had the pleasure of helping out the girls with setting up the new place. And OMG let me tell you it is awesome!!! If you are, or come to Tassie make sure that you make the time have a look!!

Here is a few LO that you will find scattered around the store, I have been playing with some recent Kaisercraft releases. Get Ready for some image overload.......
 Lots of pages of my gorgeous Nieces xxx

 How cute is my little goat wrangler!!! How funny are kids to watch we they find a little bit of courage. She really did find her bravery when it came to making sure that she was OK.
 This one above is my first try at a Kim Price inspired back after her tutorial, Not too bad for a first try.....
And last pic is an OTP that I created to put in the new store as well, I couldn't tell you how long it has been since I created anything but a 12x12 page. Loved it and keen to have a go at a couple more.
Sorry that it has been so long promise to be back very soon.
I'll be back before you know it with the Scrap the Girls challenge for this month, It's a really good one to get those special girls in your love captured forever!!!

Quick post and first challenge completed for 2013

The first one I complete was a just because, Which I haven't done for so long. Was nice to scrap for me for a change. This one is a pic of My Daughter and her friends on her Adelaide trip that she took with Crescendo Choir. Was a big deal going away for so long without family. She loved it and strengthen great friendship as well.
And the next one was a challenge at WOW It is a colour challenge this month, using Kraft, Black, Teal and a colour of your choice, I use a splash of purple. Of course you have to also use a piece of WOW chippy. This is the first time that I have entered this challenge, which is crazy because I have so much of their gorgeous chipboard. It's been one of those ones that I have been going to do but never seem to have the time. What a good start to 2013 I have made lol.
Just a quick post today, looking forward to completing a few more challenges this month and hopefully inspiring some friends to do the same???

Have you had a look at the great Birthday challenges at Scrap the Girls there is some great extra ones to give a go and you have until the end of the month..... So what are you waiting for get to it!!!!

Last post before Christmas xx

I hope that you are all on the good list when Santa makes his visit tonight, and if for some reason you are not........ Then I hope that you have had a bloody good time and made it worth the naughty list he he.

My last post before Christmas.... hopefully not before the New Year, but I'll see how I go, I'm going to be a bit time poor up until then arggghhh.

Just wanted to pop by quickly to show you the last of the layouts that I have created for Bev's Cross Craft. I absolutely love this range....... Kaisercraft new Class Act. Fantastic for the back to school LO or just school in general. I only had time to create 2 pages with this range so far, but I have heaps of paper left and am going to do a few more with it for sure. (As soon as i find the other back to school pics that I have somewhere).

Here is the first page of My Little Fella- These pics, one was taken on the first day and the other on the last day of the year. I know not a lot of difference is there. I know that he has grown but don't see a lot of difference in his overall appearance. But he sure is cute LOL

The next page is of My two kids and My Sister that moved in with us for a better education. WOW what a year it has been with 2 teenagers in the house (not sure how I survived LOL) What a great year they all had academic, really could be prouder or expect anymore. So we went from 2 students in the house to 3, oh my poor little car running around for the 3 of them. Now that all after school activities are finished feel like I can breathe a sign of relief, MAN has it been hectic, until it starts again next year. We will have Grades 3,8 and 10 going back OMG.
Well that me done, I hope that you all have a fantastic Christmas with Friends and Family and a great new year and I will see you back after the Silly Season is over YAY!!!
Thanks for coming by and seeing what I have been up to, I do like visitors xxx

Winner of STG Birthday hop

Sorry for the delay in announcing the winner of the Scrap the Girls Birthday hop, I got 9 new followers that I hope I can give some sort of inspiration too. The winner is Kylie Smith. Kylie can you please email me your address and I will get the RAK out to you ASAP. Thanks to everyone that participated, I hope that you all had a great time and find some inspiration along the way.

Well I have been a little quiet on the scrapbooking front in the last month but I have a few LO's to share that I have complete to go on display at My local Scrapbooking store Bev's Cross Craft. I have been able to play with a couple of ranges that are about to hit the store from Kaisercraft. The first one that I will share is the Botanical Odyssey range.

Here is the first one, This is pictures from a school excursion to Shale Road at Latrobe. Where Brit and her friend made Rock cakes. Brit's friend actually looks like she is thinking about taking a bite, mmmmm looks yummy!!
This range has some gorgeous colours in it and can be used for a range of subjects.
The next one is pics taken at My 30th Birthday party, what a great night with family and friends. This LO has some very dear friends to me. That I don't catch up with enough, maybe a new year's resolution right there, hey!! And of course a pic of my Baby Girl that drives me nuts lately....... Maybe it is because we are so alike (or just moody NEVER he he) I couldn't tell you how many time I have heard someone comment on how much a like we are.

Well thanks for looking come back real soon, I have another range to share with you in the next day or two.
Hope that you are all getting organised for Christmas. I do love the time spent with Family on the day, BUT the lead up to it just drives me bonkers. At least we have curbed the gift giving list this year and changed it to just purchasing for the kids. Much better.
