Just in case you are in the mood for shopping ...

i thought i would share that CIS is having a stocktake sale this week to coincide with their online retreat - which, mind you, is totally AWESOME! to say the least! this is the fourth night in a row ive scrapped till midnight. and any week that starts off like that has to be fantastic!!! its going till friday night. woohoo!

anyways, back to the sale - its 10% off except for the kits so that is a pretty good saving. head on over and check out the products. i have to admit that jolene has a fantastic product range - and im not just saying that cos im on the DT! she has a fast stock turnaround rate. seems to be a tonne of new stuff each week.

Sneak Peaks - Hambly Transparency Album

Firstly, I just wanted to say how excited I am about going to the CIS Online Retreat that starts on Friday!!!! weeee i cant wait! my kit arrived today and it has so many yummies in it! If you still wanna go I think there is some access-only spots left for only $20. That gets you into all the classes and workshops for the week but u use your own products.


Also, I am very excited to be bringing you these sneak peeks of my latest mini album :D its called "my favourite photos" and is very girlie, bright, cheerful and flowery. I did mine filled with my fav photos of Brianna from when she was born until she turned two. Love it!!! Its made completely from Hambly screenprints and includes some AC Thickers and lots of "Floral Chic" Fancy Pants goodies, including the rubons.

I plan on teaching this as a class at Scrapbook'n'Bits in the middle of September but will comfirm dates and prices as soon as I can :)

I hope yas can make it cos its my first class at SnB!!!

it really is christmas in july for me!!!!

lets just say that a very very very nice person who i will love forever offered me a chance to order some scrap supplies at rediculous prices. u dont even wanna know how low!!!!!! if i told you there would be the risk of you passing out and then i might get sued if u happen to hit something on the way down!! anyways, nearly all the money i was saving for my trip to mackay is gone now. i spent a few hundred (shock horror!) but i just couldnt say no. it was fabulous because i got over 70 sheets of bazzil amongst that - so i replenished my stock. it truely felt like christmas when i was picking it all out. now i just cant wait for it to get here!!!!!!!

Here are a few layouts I did over the weekend. The "Safe in Grandma's Arms" one is for a challenge at ScrapSavvy.

oooooh aaaaaaah!! wowee!!

That is exactly what came out of my mouth when i opened my DT kit from Scrapbook'n'bits and saw all these GORGEOUS fancy pants and hambly products!!! and there was also a pack of Thickers felt stickers which i forgot to photograph. I was instantly in love! all the gorgeous reds and lavenders and limes and pale blues. ..... ooooh so pretty!

This kit will soon be turned into a gorgeous album made by hand out of hambly transparencies!!! It will be taught as a class in mid September. So visit here mid next week for a sneak peek. And if u want me to keep you up to date via email just leave a comment here with ur email and ill send u the sneak peak once its done.

i am sooooo excited i cant wait for my photos to arrive so i can get cracking :) I hope a few of my readers can make it cos seriously, these products are sooo gorgeous. especially the flowers!!!! oh my!! where do i start haha

we have had a bit of a personal issue that I dont want to bring in here regarding troy's nan. so if the sneak peak is a bit late you will have to forgive me!!
