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.

Little Announcement! and some scrappy shares.

Well it has been decided that I am going to host a Tassie Scrapbooking retreat....... Arghhhh I think I can, I think I can...... With some help from some lovely ladies, it is going to be a ball. I really can't wait. The details are, if you are interested in attending.
12-14 April 2013
Camp Banksia, Port Sorell Tas 7307. This is still in the planning stage and unsure of cost as yet. Workshop will be conducted over the weekend, Great for Beginner to Advance Scrapper, We will try to make it interesting and inspirational for everyone. Anyone interested in coming or sponsoring drop me a line.

And now for some scrappy shares of the latest that I have been working on, proudly sponsored by Bev's Cross Craft in Devonport Tas. This month Bev gave me some more Kaisercraft ranges to play with. The first I have had time to play with is Secret Admirer. Now this range looks beautiful and colourful which is OK for me, But, Floral stumps me a little.......

The First one I really like how it came together (Excuses the slightly blurry pic). This is one of the photo's from My Best Friends wedding. Love this pic I think that is one of my fav from the gorgeous day.

The next one is a pic from My own Wedding back in 2008. This one if a couple of great girls that I have meet though working at the CBA and made great friendship with. They really did have a big special impact on Our Wedding day. Organising me LOL. Which is NO small task he he. 10 Weeks out from the date I had no dress, no flowers, no cake and you could only guess what else wasn't organised. But it all came together beautifully on the day and I really wouldn't change a thing. Even the dodgy Wedding singer LOL ( u had to be there he he)

Heading back to the desk very soon to play with a couple more special treats from Bev, so stay tuned.
Thanks for coming by to visit.

Scrap the Girls November

Hi people's, Hope that you are all well, and getting ready for the Big Fella to arrive soon..... I know that I need to pull my finger out and get it all sorted.

Over at Scrap the Girls this month we really do have a great challenge to document those moments forever. This months challenge is to use a LIST Now this can be any sort of list and the CT has really outdone themselves with inspiration this month, Lots of inspiration and ideas.
With my layout I decided to document Brit's year 2012, I love the idea of this and can't believe that I have never thought to do it before, think I have found a new take on my layouts and how to record all those precious years to look back on later, and what special events or achievements have happened over the year. Will be doing one for my little fella for 2012 very soon.

OK if you have read all that, then congrats and thankyou lol....

Here is my LO for the challenge......

I have used the new Kaisercraft Secret Admirer range on this page, Thanks to my local scrapbooking store for giving me this range to play with. This LO will eventually be on display at Bev's Cross Craft in Devonport Tas. This range was a challenge in a way to use, I do scrap with some colourful ranges but never really floral. I think I went with a safe option with the greens. But really does show case the photo (well I think it does).
I had better get moving and creating a few more LO's I have been a little slack lately and being on STG CT has been great for me, Because I have to scrap at least one page a month. Otherwise I'm not sure that I would hit the desk sometimes.
Thanks for the visit and feel free to leave some love I do love to read what you all think
