Busy like a bee!!!

Ive been busy as a bee working through my scrapping todo list!


Firstly Id like to share a Christmas card I made for Scrapbook'n'bits with some stamps I recieved from them. they were groovy little stamp sets that retail for about $4 each i think? very cute and very cheap!!! just the way i like them ;)

This is just one card of the seven I made. To view them all go to the forum here.

Inside the card:

To make the above card I cut two rectangles out of bazzill, inked them with blue then stapled them together along the top in a crisscross pattern. I then stamps the inside and out and decorated with silver kindyglitz - you cant have christmas cards without glitz!!!! haha. Lastly i tied some ribbon around the top and secured it with a very christmas looking bow!


A friend of mine is about 10 weeks preggers and she has been suffering TERRIBLE morning sickness that lasts all night and all day. vomiting and diaohrria! poor poor girl! i really feel for her. she is getting quite down! so ive made her a little minialbum to hold a few photos of her growing belly and a spot to journal on!

Lots of colours and glitz to make her feel a bit cheerier!

Its made from a tag book that ive covered it with MME papers and decorated with BG rubons, green tara & prima flowers, ribbons, AC thickers, HS damask stickers (im obsessed with these!), paint and lots of silver kindyglitz!!!

there is one double page for each trimester.

20:40:60, Hula's layout, and a comp win!

How exciting!!!!!!! after getting my 5 publications last week I also got a call from Scrapbook Creations asking me to do a layout for their 20:40:60 segment!!!! YAYAYAY! im so super excited. I spoke to Donna and she said that I am down for the 20 minute one (should be no worries!). Im getting a kit sent to me which apparently is pretty big, and I get paid $50. so that is a bonus :D

The above is a layout i did yesterday about my new little neice Hula. She is such a cutie! Ive had that CI paper for awhile but was unsure how to use it. finally its out of my stash!!! :)

There is a new blog out called "Scrap the Stuff" and I entered their september comp and won :D yay!! I won a $40 paper pack so that is rockin!

And just quickly! Ive compiled my fav layouts that Ive created in 2007 in a blog post that you can find HERE! Its also now a link on the right in the navigation menu. Ill be updating this whenever I do a layout i adore. Cos I must admit i think some of my layouts are hohum! haha

Off to scrap now! so cya later alligators! :D
