Our Little Miss

In June I will be attending a retreat at Southern Cross and teaching some classes. Some of the ladies are wanting to work with vellum. I will admit I am not a huge fan of vellum but it has challenged me to dive through my scraps (VERY large scrap pile!) and experiment. I cut some flower shapes from the vellum and Kindy Glitzed the outside of them. I am new to using Kindy Glitz but thanks to my scrapping friend Nomes, I am well on my way! I also used some scrap vellum in the photo's so easy to stitch through! Our girl is growing so much everyday and her personality is packed with fun! The hidden journaling is behind the photo and I have written her a letter highlighting all her funny little mannerisms that I am loving atm.

Just loving the school holidays and the break from routine..........take care!

Just had to share.......

I got a phone call last week to say that I have been chosen as one of two Aussie Scrappers to join the Xyron Design Team!!! I was thrilled to bits, particularly as I use so many of their products. Mel Nunn has also been chosen and I look forward to working alongside her....Congratulations Mel! We also receive lots of goodies to play with as a result....can't wait! This is the layout I entered. Elise is so attached to her 'wug' and this photo really shows it.

A bit more news...........
This layout was voted one of the winners for the 2006 SM People's Choice Awards. I got such a lovely surprise when I learnt of this and I'm thrilled to be receiving some goodies to play with as a result. Looking at this LO here reminds me how quickly my baby has grown and changed!

I am so thankful for all that this great hobby has given to me so far.......particularly the friendships. Hope everyone had a great Easter!

Keeping Busy!

As seen in Scrapbooking Memories (Vol 8 No 8) This was a Heidi Grace Product Challenge. I loved this pack and it seemed perfect for this pic I took of a family we are very close to.

As seen in the latest Scrapbooking Memories (Vol 8 No. 10) This was an Anna Griffin product Challenge where I had to use a mini chipboard accordian album. I designed mine as a 2006 Family Wall Hanging with the pics on the front and all the journaling on the back. It fits nicely in my scraproom.

Journaling on the back of some of the kids 2006 milestones/events.

This layout made it to the top 20 of the Scrapbook Creations Cover Comp. This photo is one of my all time faves. There were some amazing entries in this inspirational!

A This layout has been accepted for publication. Look out for it in Scrapbooking Memories!

A layout for Patrick's album using MM Fresh Anthology papers. Love the way this boy has blossomed since he started Pre-Primary.
On the 27th of April I will be sharing some of my work and taking a journaling workshop at The Esperance Primary School Library. This night is open to the community and funds raised go towards getting the Year 7 students to Perth for their camp. I love doing things like this and hope that the evening is a successful one for everyone.
Have a great week!
