Another DT work

I have been luck to be picked as a Guest Designer for Creative Scrappers this week and here is my take on it......

Tom getting his trophy for getting Runner-up Best & Fairest for the U/12 for the Adelaide Plains Basketball Association. 

It's been a while

I know it's been awhile since I updated my blog, life has been busy busy busy!!  I took 6 grandchildren down to our beach shack for the school holidays and we had a great time, they even went for a swim, boy I bet it was cold!!  I will post some pics later, they are on my laptop and I haven't loaded them on to this one.

Here are some layouts that I have been doing.....these are my DT layouts for Nuts About Sketches, I love these sketches as they have mulitple photos on them which I LOVE doing!  Here is the sketch for week 130
here is my take on the sketch.   Tom riding his Xmas present, a battery operated Scooter.  I am trying to scrap some old photos I have in albums, these were from Xmas 2004!!

The next one is the sketch from week 129
and here is my layout.....Cooper trying to catch Hayley's cat in the haystack to tell it he was sorry for pulling it's tail!
The next one is the sketch for 128...
Cooper again trying to get Tom's helmet on....he is so cute!!  These photos were taken in 2006

Head on over to Nuts About Sketches and have a go at Shawn's sketches, they are great fun!!

Woo Hoo!!

Woo Hoo!!  I've just been accepted to be on the Design Team for Nuts about Sketches !!  I start in September and I can't wait!  I love doing multi-photo pages and the sketches there are fantastic!  They also have great sketches for double pages.  Here is the Sketch we had to do and my LO I submitted.
The LO didn't scan very well, a bit over-exposed.  I made the flower with material and lace, I love it!!  I will certainly be making more of those!
Here is this weeks sketch, why don't you head over to Nuts about Sketches and see what the current DT have created with this interesting sketch and have a go and see what you can create with it!

I'm Back!!

Hi there, I'm back...been a bit slack with my posting on here, will try and do a better job in the future.

Things have been rather hectic since my last post, started working again at a Cafe in Port Broughton, I enjoyed being back cooking again but my old body just couldn't cope with the hours I was doing and the travelling was getting a bit much plus I was getting no time to help Hayley with Montana, so after 3 months decided to give it up and concentrate more on my card and scrapbooking classes I teach and also to spend more time at our hotel in Coobowie helping them out.

Little Princess Montana has improved soooo much it is unbelievable!!! She spent a week in hospital trying to get her eczema under control and boy did it help....she is a totally different baby!  She went from a grissly, itching,  miserable baby, totally covered from her head to her toes in eczema to the happiest little Cherub you have ever seen! She still has the eczema but only in patches but we can control it better now. She doesn't wear mittens anymore, we can put her on her stomach (she used to rub her face raw on the rug trying to scratch it) she has learnt to do so much now that she is happier...she melts my heart!

So, on the crafting front, I have been busy doing my card & scrapbooking classes.  Thinking of doing another scrapbooking class during the week so that will keep me busy.  Here are a few cards that I have been making.

These we make last night, I used the Boho Background stamp set from Stampin Up for both cards.

I wanted to show the girls how versatile a stamp set can be.  Excuse the photos, I must find out how to take decent photos of cards.
I haven't scranned any of my LO's that I have done, will try and get them done over the weekend.

Here are a few more cards that I have been making.
I used the stamp set...Embrace Life for these cards.
Here are a couple of Xmas cards that we have made.

Must go, will up date some more cards and some LOs soon.

Mad Hatter LO

Here is my LO that I did for the Mad Hatter challenge HERE.  The criterias this month were to do some sanding, use a quote and had to have triangles somewhere.  I have sanded all the edges of the photos and papers, used the quote from Bo Bunny and made a border of triangles down the bottom, I got the idea from the croc's teeth on Tom's t-shirt.  All the papers are from the new range of Bo Bunny paper, LOVE them!!

Head on over to OUT OF THE HAT and have a go at this month's criterias, would love to see what you come up with! 
This is my last month on the design team, I will be sad to leave but I will continue to do their challenge, LOVED my time there, it made me think outside of the box with some of the challenges!

Have a great day!

Trying out my signature....

To see if it works.  Have played around with it for ages, might have another play tomorrow.  Will also post my cards I did for my classes sometime over the weekend, have to get my camera back first.

Have a great weekend! 

Guest Designer spot!

I was so honoured to be asked to join in Creative Scrappers birthday celebrations this month, I was given this awesome sketch to work with designed by Katla Adams....

This is the layout I did.....I love doing multi-photo pages and this sketch was right up my alley! Head on over to Creative Scrappers  and join in their birthday celebrations and have a look at the gorgeous pages the other designers have created.

Here are my 3 gorgeous grandchildren Mickayla, Ebbony & Cooper enjoying the beautiful beach at Black Point over the summer holidays, they love the water and Cooper enjoys scaring the daylights out of me!!!  He goes way over his depth, you can see in one of the pictures his little head with just his eyes and nose above water!!!  A number of times I have had to run into the water fully dressed to drag him into shore...little rascal! I love to watch them enjoying themselves, it makes me happy.

Have a great day!

DT layout..

Here is my layout I did for Out of the Hat challenge, the criterias were to use pop dots/foam tape, black & white photo and a stamped image/s. I have used the gorgeous papers by Bo Bunny with Prima Flowers and pearl flourish. The butterly and birds where popped up with foam tape and I stamped the journalling spot and cut it out.

Russ & Susie went to visit Nanna Sims at Port Broughton before flying back to QLD after their Xmas holiday break, Ebbony & Cooper were staying with me for the holidays and came too. It is great to get a picture of Mum with her grandson and her great-grandchildren.

I'm here at our shack staying with 6 grand-children during the school holidays. Weather not the best for the beach but we are still enjoying ourselves, the kids don't seem to feel the cold, they are still going out in the canoes and swimming. Here they are sitting on the decking in front of the shack getting their easter presents and eggs from Nanny & Poppy.

Bought a new laptop and I am trying to sort this blogger out, having heaps of trouble trying to adjust the header and adding all the bits and pieces to the sidebar. I'll get there but it might take a bit of time, I'm not the best at these things!
Here are a few photos of the kids swimming and paddling in the canoes, it really is beautiful here, the sunrises are spectacular, the header is a photo I took the other morning of the sunrising over the sea.
Here are my 7 darling grand-children, all sunkissed with salty and wind blown hair, aren't they just adorable, I'm not bias at all!! Little Montana is our newest addition born on the 7th March 2010.
