Glad you had TIME to stop by!!

Hi thanks for popping on by for our monthly blog hop, This months theme was TIME suggested by me as it seems that I have a shortage of time, and of course it can't be from poor time management lol. NEVER.
Isn't it funny how we are always complain about not having enough time to get the things done that we want to get done. How much time would be enough??? What would you really do if you had TIME to do it? Oh I could think of so much. Sometime is probably not time that is the problem but maybe motivation? Maybe?
I am someone that doesn't worry if the house is spotless, and can quite happy sit in a messy room, taking some me time and scrapping my little heart out and making more mess. Where the rest of my family have to have everything all neat and tidy and torment me at every chance about my house keeping efforts. But they know I wil never change.
 If only I physically got what I had in mind, OMG I would achieve so much, I gotta tell you that I am not the most organised person and most of the time I do leave everything to the last minute ( ummm that's why I am still getting my blog post done late Thursday night hmmmm) But my Best Friend always says that yes I do leave things to the last minute and there is no point in nagging me, but I do seem to always get there in the end. (maybe a little late he he)
I spend most of my time running around after the kids, cooking, attempting to clean & tidy and can't resist some me time wether that be scrapbooking or just looking at all the insparation on the big wide web (since doscovering blogging, it's a whole new ball game of jacking my TIME)  it still me time,and everyone needs me time!!

Here's some pics from a recent weekend that I had with my Sister combo's, We scrapped all weekend, not much sleep was had. Still can't stay up as late a Loren. OMG night owl.

Here's is a couple of recent LO, where I have been playing with the Just released, Butterfly Kisses from Kaisercraft. I was lucky to get to play with it a little early when asked to do some work for my local scrapbooking store, Bev's Cross Craft.
Here they are............

How cute is this pic of My little Niece, Isn't she just adorable. This one always make me think I'm gonna getcha...... It's a very bright page hey!

This one I played with texture paste a crafters workshop template and then just coloured some of the words with markers. The title is a WOW one that I have cut up to separate the words and then just coloured and used a white pen around the outside. Love this LO, the pics a so cool of My daughter and her friend on a recent sleepover!!
This one is another of one of my Nieces, How fast do the little ones catch on to technology now, OMG. Here is Skye paying with her Ice Pod as she calls it, She uses it to play games, what a look of concentration.

I was very lucky to get to play with this great range. If you live in Tassie or on visit the North West coast pop into Bev's and have a look and some of the great stuff that she has available!!
 I hope that you have made TIME to get around to all the girls to have a look at what Fabulous stuff they have put together, you should have come from Chloe's and on to see Kerri next.
Here is the list Just in case you get lost and need to come back to find your way again

Frosted Designs

First time playing with Frosted designs, Had last weeks on my to-do list but ran out of time to complete it, Looking back this week and the challenge was triangle I couldn't resist as I had been working on Christmas LO and what say Christmas more than Triangle Christmas Trees. So I have given it ago this time round and am quite happy with how it came together.
Here what I have put together.
I have used a few triangles in the Christmas trees and also on the photo corners, Lots of points on the LO as well. So how easy is this challenge to have a go at, If you wanna have a go yourself go HERE and give it ago yourself.
TFL back soon, I have to start working on a blog hop scheduled for Friday so stay posted!!

Kaiser sketch challenge #3 September

Hi long time between post, but I have been busy. I have done some work for my local scrapbooking store. Bev's Cross Craft. I was given some of the new ranges to play with and loved #3 sketch although the sketch was a little daunting to start with. I shrunk the sketch down so that it didn't cover the whole page, and centered it to the middle.
Here is what the sketch looked like to start with......
 I have used Mint Twist range for this LO love the colours and the die cuts are soooo cute.
Products other that Kaiser used, Kare Foster Alphas and Tim Holtz die.
Love playing with the range and happy with the results, will be heading back to the Kaisercraft site for some more sketch challenges.
Will have a heap more Kaiser LO to upload very soon, Will start with some more Mint Twist LO and then some other that I have been working on!!
TFL and come back again soon, will try not to have such a delay in posts.

Scrap the Girls September Challenge

Who's ready for the new challenge a Scrap the Girls, this month the challenge is to use Action or Sport photos.
Now this one I had to have a think about because my Daughter and action don't really go together lol. No to be fair she does play netball and has played basketball, but I haven't actually taken pics of her playing, It was either too wet or I don't know I always worry about taking pics at public sporting events. So use to the rule at school of only being able to take pics of your own kids now. Silly I know. So this challenge has made me realise that I do need to capture pics of her playing sports, just to keep the memories that she did play sport lol.
So the pics I have used are of My Daughter and Youngest Sister (one that also live with us to go to school) running in the 3 legged race on Australia Day in Strahan this year. A similar pic to these ones actually made it into our local paper (The Advocate).
Here is my pic.
Now for those that follow or come and visit regular will have seen a few Australia Day LO lately (I finally got them printed). It is our Families favourite day, and this is not because we are fiercely patriotic. It's because we always have a great Family day in Strahan, It is something that I have been able to give to my children that was a big enjoyable part of my childhood, I use to love the day as much as they do. I think we have only missed one year down there out of 5 as a Family. It's a high light on the kids calendar and they eagerly compete in all the competitions. For my Son it doesn't mean winning just getting a lollipop is good enough lol.
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to scrap those gorgeous girl in your lives in action, I will look out for them and pop on by and let you know that I have come for a visit.
Have a great Father's Day tomorrow and see you back again sometime soon
