Kraft It Up December Challenge

This is my first attempt for this challenge blog, always on the look out for something new and different for a challenge. Kraft +  Christmas photo + Knots + Non traditional Christmas colours.

I've used Bo Bunny pp's, chipboard embellishments, brads, stickers and notebook tear out, Kaiser bling, Green Tara flowers & twine, unknown chipboard title and Do Crafts silver tree. The knots have been incorporated on the chipboard trees.

White with 1 December Challenge

This is my attempt at the White with 1 December challenge, White + Grey + Masking.

I enjoyed this challenge, it was certainly a different colour scheme for me. I've used Bazzill CS, Tattered Angels Mask, Smooch mist, Green Tara, Prima & Cremen Creations flowers, MM notebook tear out & metal postage stamp, unknown pearls & chipboard title and Bella chipboard bird.

December ATC swap at Scrap A While - Christmas

This one I really enjoyed doing as my Christmas theme is blue and I'm really happy with the way these ATC's came together. They are only very simply but I'm really happy with them. Again sorry about the picture quality, I was having a lot of trouble yesterday doing these photo's.

November ATC swap at Scrap A While - All That Glitters

This is my interpretation of the ATC's for November

November Card Swap at Scrap A While

This is the card that I made for the November card Swap, the theme was Thank You.

Sorry about the picture quality my camera is playing up a litte at the moment.

Missing in Action

Well as you can see I have been missing in action yet again, unfortunately this time it was due to the computer crashing and only getting it back last weekend. I have now also started my new job at Beachfront Holiday Resort at Hallidays Point and it is fantastic and they are a wonderful team, as yet I have to meet all the girls I will no doubt be working along side at Christmas. This week is time to rest up as much as possible between shifts and try and get some serious scrapping done as after Boxing Day there will be no rest for the wicked in the Caravan Park industry.

This first LO is one which I completed when attending a class at Scrap A While in Taree on the last weekend in October with Sherry Mendonza. The class was a Prima class using mostly their products so I thought it was appropriate to use the photo I had taken with Sherry. This was a wonderful class and Sherry was an amazing teacher and also a lovely person.

The next LO is one that I did the same weekend at the Girls Night In at Scrap A While in Taree as well. We didn't really get too much done as everyone was really tired after the big Tattered Angels class we did with Sherry on the Saturday where we made an Art Journal. I have made mine as a gift so until the pressie has been opened I am unable to publish a picture but will do so as soon as I can.

Sorry I haven't been around

Well I'd like to say that I'm sorry I haven't been very good at updating my blog of late, firstly I've been in to hospital and had my gall bladder removed and then home for recovery time. I've also just recently become unemployed as my workplace has been sold and my hours where cut back too much by the new owner.

This LO is the 1st November challenge for SAW, we had to scraplift a LO for the gallery. The LO I scraplifted was one of Kylie27 as she is known around the scrapbooking worlds, you can go to her blog from my home page.

This will now be my last post for at least a week as my wonderful husband is taking me away on holidays as when I get a new job we probably won't be able to get away for 12mths. He has been madly saving for my 40th in April but we have decided to use the funds now and get away for a much needed break. Hopefully will be uploading a lot more while I'm unemployed.

Weekly Challenge for SAW - 4 October

This is my attempt at this weeks weekly challenge for Scrap A While. We had to use stamping on the layout. So my stamping is the leaves for the tree, the vine leaves with the flowers and the owl, bambi & rabbit. Really enjoyed this challenge, had to really think about what stamps to use as I have some many, but I'm very pleased with the result.

This challenge we had to use Basic Grey products and at least 3 different pp's. I've chosen to use mostly BG products as I love the Wisteria range. I've also used American Crafts thickers, Kaiser pearls, Pom Pom trim and Cremen Creation flowers.
