Scrap The Girls January 2011 Challenge

Well this is my first attempt at the Scrap The Girls Challenge blog and enjoyed this a lot. The theme for this month was Summer and of course it had to be about girls. So here's mine.

Dusty Attic January 2011 Challenge

Well here is my first attempt at the Dusty Attic Sketch Challenge for 2011.

KaiserCrafties January Sketch Challenge 3

Well here it is the final challenge for January.

Thanks for looking.

KaiserCrafties January Sketch Challenge 2

This is the 2nd of 3 challenges for Kaiser Crafties this month which I can't believe I actually got done and uploaded in time. Tried to take the photo's at work yesterday but too much shadow at lunch time and then the batteries in the camera decided they would run out. Had to call into the shops before work this morning and rush home tonight to get the shots done before all the light dissappeared. Photo's aren't of the best quality but it was the best I could do under the circumstances as they had to be uploaded tonight with it being the end of the month.

I hope you like them.

In this LO I've used the Homemade Collection.

KaiserCrafties January Sketch Challenge 1

Well after a very busy January I managed to get this challenge LO done along with a couple of others at the Scrap A While QLD Flood fund raiser scrap day last Saturday.

We had a wonderful time and it was wonderful catching up with the ladies and have a laugh as well as some well needed scrappin time.

The ladies at the Taree Craft Centre where lovely and did us a beautiful lunch along with a lovely cake to end our afternoon.

This is the first of 5 LO's I managed to get done.

I've used Kaiser Craft Jungle Bug range.

1 2 3 January Challenge

Well I've discovered another challenge site, I didn't know they where still going and I'm so pleased that they are. I've done a couple of cypercrops with 1 2 3 a couple of years ago and they where great.

This months challenge was to use the colour purple, punches and the word beautiful on a LO. Here's my attempt using BG Wisteria & alpha, MM mini alpha, Prima & unknown flowers, 2Crafty chipboard, SEI tag, ribbon & Martha Stewart punches.

Thanks for looking.

White with 1 January Challenge

Well I'm off to a good start this year, I've managed to get 2 LO's done so far as well as working and all the other stuff that goes along with Christmas. This is the 2nd LO of the year for the White with 1 January challenge.

White CS


Royal or Navy Blue


A Banner

I've done this one of my 2 cats as our old lounge was a royal blue so I thought it appropriate.

Kraft It Up January Challenge

Well I really enjoyed doing this challenge as I had the perfect papers and the perfect photo, which is really unusual for me to have it all together. This is a photo of my hubby (David) with a couple of his work mates (Jamie & John) at their work Christmas Party.

Wednesday, January 5, 2011


Well I've started my new job at Beachfront Holiday Resort and am absolutely loving it. Great environment and a great team to work with. We've been flat out as you can guess as it is the holiday season and the busiest time of year in the Caravan Park industry. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year so here's to looking forward to bigger and better things in 2011.

I can now finally upload two of the items I was working on prior to Christmas as they where for my BFF for her 40th so I was unable to upload them until I had given them to her.

So the first one is a Art Journal which I learnt the techniques from Sherry Mendoza at Scrap A While in Taree on the last weekend in October 2010.

The next one is a canvas I've done with a photo of Bec and myself from our weekend away in Coffs Harbour in August 2010. We had a wonderful time but unfortunately it wasn't long enough as they never are, I created this canvas using different colours to my normal as Bec has recently changed her bedrooms colour scheme so I thought this would be a perfect match. I was really pleased when she opened this gift as she absolutely loved it. I hope you all do to.

Thanks for looking, and here's to being around and scrappin a little bit more this year. See you all again soon. xxxx
