MME is simply LUSH!!!

This is the latest Design Team challenge at Addicted to Craft.
It was a Recipe Challenge - I quite like those challenges, this was the first one I have actually done, but gosh it was fun. I was lucky I had such beautiful products to work with too - courtesy of Luisa at Addicted to Craft :0)

The Recipe was to use 5 patterned papers, Brads and Rhinestones.
I had this boooootiful My Minds Eye Lush Range to work with. The paper is such good quality, and I looooove the flocked papers, so soft and pretty......
Here are some sneak peaks - I cut out the flowers and patterns from the flocked paper, and included them in the flower clusters around the circle.
Yesterday afternoon we all went off to the Mackay Show. It was Connor's first time at a show, and as he walked in, his eyes were so huge, and he didn't know what to take in first!! It was so cute...
This is Connor's first taste of fairy floss - and the lucky boy just happened to score it from the Mackay Sugar Display. Another good thing about living in a sugar This fairy floss was the yummiest I have EVER tasted - so light and melt in the mouth, and not too sweet. Ahhh, yes, Mackay certainly knows sugar!! Hehe!!

Here he is on his first ferris wheel - it was one of those tiny little ones... Poor boy though, they stopped it when he was right at the top so they could let more people on... he did get a bit frightened then... Right after though, he just loved it!

Check out this dare devil face - I think this photo is one I am definately going to scrap!! LOL!

He was so proud of himself too - winning some prizes on the clown stand!! Very cute indeed.
All in all a lovely family outing - and a great way to spend an afternoon!!

Scrappy Shares

Just a couple of scrappy shares - more as a diversion from Report Card writing than anything else - at this rate of procrastination, I will be staying up all night tomorrow night to finish them!! EEEEEEEEPPPP!!!!!

This is the layout for the free class I did at Scrapbook N Bits on Wednesday Night. Keep your eye on the Free Class Thread in the Forum - the DT Girls have lots planned over the next coupld of months!!

Just as a bit of a relax on a Friday night, I participated in the Cyber Crop over at Scrap Boutique. This layout was frome the lovely Amanda's Speed Scrap - really enjoyed this, as a real faff about type scrapper, sometimes it's good to be pressed for time and just stick it down - hehe.

Oh well, back to writing report cards - it would have to be the one part of my job I really don't like at all!!

Free Class at SnB

Well, these promised sneaks are a tad late - I have been soooooo sick this week, first with some sort of chesty virus, now I have asthma, which is ever so pleasant.... NOT!!!!

The class will be on next Wednesday Night - 16 June, at 7.30pm, in the Free Class section in the ScrapbooknBits forum

I am going to show you how to make some cute embellishments with brown string, which will give your layout a cool textured look. I have used the gorgeous Max and Whiskers Range from Basic Grey, available at ScrapbooknBits.

Hope to see you all there!!

Scrappy Happenings @ ScrapbooknBits

Yes, I have been scrapping - just seem too busy to actually upload to the blog... oopsies....
The layout below was for a free class last Wednesday at ScrapbooknBits. I used the JB Coredinations cardstock, October Afternoon Thrift Shop Papers, and other bits n pieces. Most of which can be found here in the SnB shop. If you want to do the class pop here in the Free Class section - I think it will be up for a while....

If you like that one, there will be another class on Wednesday 16th June - I will be using some gorgeous Max and Whiskers products!!
Sneaks will be up in a couple of days......

Also, I have been competing in the Postcards Competition over at Scrapboutique. Chels and the other designers outdid themselves with this competition - just so much fun!
This layout was for the trip to India.....
I just loved all the colours of the postcard, not to mention the bling!!LOL!

Our next stop was Japan, and I fell in love with the cherry blossoms, and the fans. The additional criterea was to use a paper art technique of some kind - and I made the little fan, just folded up some patterned paper, wrapped some DMC thread around the base, and treaded through a little bit more cotton. I actually was quite pleased with this one....

Our last port of call was the magnificent Greenland, I once again loved the colours, and the wintery feel to the whole card, so I produced a Christmas Layout - since we don't get much of a winter up here, winter photos are very hard to come by.... LOL!

Well, that's it from me atm - hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Thanks for stopping by my blog :0)

KISS at Kraft It Up!!!

The challenge at Kraft It Up this month is to Keep It Simple!!

You have to use a Kraft base - of course, and do a minamalist layout.....

This layout would have to be the MOST challenging for me to date - I am so not good at minamalist, I am not a minamalist person in any way shape or form.......LOL.....

Anyway, this is my sample:
