My Master's Entries

Firstly I would like to congratulate all the talented ladie's who are Scrap Master's this year - especially my Peeps Renee Iveson and Kim Jeffress - luv ya guts.

But its not about them - its all about me (he he) - I would like to share with you all the layouts that I did.

I am really proud of myself for not only completing the tasks but also for persisting when the postman decided to deliver my entries back to me instead of to Silverwater - I had a massive panic attack and thought that maybe this was a really good sign that I should not bother but nonetheless I thought stuff it "What have I got to loose, they can only tell me that I suck".

I got the master's magazine in the mail today which I thought was really weird because I don't subscribe to it anymore but low and behold one of my layouts got an honorable mention - woot woot.

So I may as well share now instead of babbling........I decided to theme all my layouts around my 4 children.

First up was..........JETT


And the gorgeous..........ALECIA

And last but not least - the HONOURABLE MENTION - but i must say out of all the layouts I did not expect this one to get published thats for sure...........LACHLAN

First layer

Second Layer

All 3 layers

It was fun to do and I thank all my peeps for the encouragement - by the way did anyone win any money? he he (Peep Joke)

O Christmas Tree

First of all I would like to wish you all a BIG

and thankyou so much for all your kind comments and support that you have given me all year in not only my scrapping but also for my studies as well.

Over at STS we have embraced all things festive and are challenging you to a christmas challenge.
The song I have chosen to inspire you all with is O CHRISTMAS TREE and i have chosen the version from the hit TV show "Glee" ( I know you are all closet fans - he he)

While I was doing the challenge I had no idea what or where I was going to start and then I looked over at my massive stack of doilies and my brain started ticking.......can i make a tree out of this? O CHRISTMAS TREE I shall attempt thee....... this is what I came up with -

And here are a few closies -

All the pressies under the tree ( Secretly my favourite part of christmas) -

All the dimension I have created -

and all the decorations -

Just as an added extra I decided to make a card out of a few bits and pieces that i had left over -

So go grab yourselves a santa hat - sit at your scrap table and be inspired.
I am looking forward to seeing what you all come up with.

Happy Days

I HEART Heather

Over at the BOXX this month it was my turn to be challenged by doing an uplift - not that its a challenge really because there are so many wonderful layouts to easily get inspired by

I chose to do 2 layouts by the wonderfully talented HEATHER JACOB - I just love her work, I dont know what it is about it that I love but i just know that i love it.

Here are the 2 layouts of Heather's that are my absolute favourites -

Aren't they just gorgeous?

And here is the first layout I did that was inspired by her -

And some closeups -

Bunting made from LILYBEE designs new christmas range that can be purchased from the BOXX and also twine from the CHIP CHOP SHOP

Some stamping (not real good mind you) and some other bits and pieces

How divine is this flower? Its from MANOR HOUSE Creations that can also be purchased from the BOXX

And this is my 2nd layout -

This is my LITTLE Lochie who is not so little anymore on his first christmas - he is graduating Yr7 next week......eekkk off to High School next year.

Some SCRAPMATTS yumminess -

How cute is this teddy? It was a little christmas gift given to me by the awesome BECKY LYNCH from SCRAP THAT SONG

And last but not least I decided to make a few simple christmas cards out of some of my leftovers -

Are you all christmassed out yet? Such a happy stressful time of year. Speaking of which if i dont get here for some reason I would like to wish all my blog friends a verry merry christmas and an awesome 2012. Thanks for your kind words and support all year.

Way back in June I attended the Scrapbooking expo in Brisbane with Leanne Jago, Michelle Ryder and my Ma Jo.

We stayed in Brisvegas on the Saturday night at a hotel that was not too far from the convention centre so everything was walking distance which was really convenient.

The expo itself was a little bit disappointing this year because there was not as much to waste your money on like previous years ( which my bank balance thanked me for )

One big drawback of the weekend was the fact that I was dog sick ( It was probably punishment for spending time at the expo rather than with my husband - it was our wedding anniversary weekend ), apparently we had this really awesome dinner at the Satay Hut in Southbank but I was so sick that I could not even taste that :(

One big bonus of the weekend was that we got to do a class with the amazing Lou Nelson

The left side of the double -

The right side of the double -

My gorgeous girls and the gorgeous cluster of embellies -

The title -

Some of the yummy Imaginarium Chippies -

It was a great class and i got a lot out of it - it is amazing how something so simple can look like a million dollars

Stuart and Katie

Everyone loves a good wedding.........right? Stuart was one of Adam's groomsmen when we got married and now 10 years later we helped him celebrate his big day. We got to spend the weekend together in the Hunter Valley NSW and it was just amazing to get away together because that is something that is few and far between
Some Closies - Bit a somethin in the corner
The flower I made with my cuttlebug -
And finally some Scrapmatts yumminess

I had my practical exam today

I only have 2 more written exams left and then I can tick another semester off in my life book and prepare for the next one ( At least after this semester I can officially say that I am over half way through my degree ) - a huge effort for little ole me

Love ya's and pray for me - he he
