Finished this page this morning for Zig Zag's cyber-crop. This was for Challenge 1 which was - must use pink card/pp and green card/pp, have hidden journalling and use white paint. Using lace was optional. So this is the result. The colours are a little out, but the pink is actually a deep watermelon colour, and looks quite vibrant against the green.
I had some fun doing this LO. I've been wanting to scrap this page of me and Jude for ages, so I'm so happy I've now done it! Never actually done hidden journalling before, so that was something new.
Just all great fun! Will maybe upload another page today too....we'll see :-)

Have had a hectic couple of days. Kiti Q is in the process of preparing for our first massive (40 students) class for disabled people. I'm really quite excited about it, but it's been a lot of work. Only one more sleep and it's all happening - yay!
I managed to get a page finished over the last 24 hours, that I am really happy with. It's called "Warm & Fuzzy". Photography is again done by my fabulous photographer sister Danielle (see side link). She captures so many special moments, and I'm addicted to scrapping her photos almost as much as just scrapping! Anyway here it is.....
Take care xx

What a beautiful sunny day it was today. I just love spring! My garden is blooming with stock, chrysanthemum daisies, mexican orange blossom and lavender as well as multi-coloured lobelia, and I just love it's messy look. I can't help peeking out of our kitchen window every time I walk by, just to look at the gorgeous flowers.
And yesterday was also another perfect day which we spent at the zoo. It was Jude's first time visiting the zoo, and he just loved all the animals, especially the meerkats. Got to catch up with the lovely Cass and her family which was fantastic, and have now got lots of new photos to scrap - will it ever end?? :-)

Just one of the pages I completed at Saturday's fundraiser, of Jude. I'm really happy with it. I got to play with some of the new Urban Lily papers (thank u Dan) and I just love these pics that Dan took of Jude a couple of weeks ago.
Aarrgghh - just realised I'm 28 today!
My scrapbooking high did not end there though :-). When I got home and checked my inbox, there was an exciting email from Julia at For Keeps - they want my "little miss fashion diva" page for their monthly article feature called "Inspired by" - yay! How exciting!! So this week I will have to post off Alannah's hat and my page to Sydney...I don't know what Lana will think of that.
So all in all, a really wonderful day.

Yesterday was a hugely hectic day, well, it felt like it anyway. The kids were at their grandparents and I was free to do as I pleased, so I went shopping :-) and then to the hairdresser. Will post a photo of my new 'do' soon (I promise, Hayley!).
Finished the two challenges for SAM, but am not overly happy with them, so will not post them yet. Hoping to scrap something new this arvo, but if not, I'll definitely scrap something tomorrow at the Dylan Hartung Scrap Fundraiser Crop Day - I just can't wait! I will finally meet some of the girls I've chatted to on-line and will get to spend a day of scrapping with my sis, Danielle, child-free - yay!

Today I got an email request from Scrapbooking Memories for this page "Sound of Your Heart" to go in their mums gallery - yay!!
I actually quite like this page, because it's of my sister, Hayley and nephew, who is not yet born, so it's very special. (not long now until we do get to meet him :-))
Uploaded some very funky new bazzill cardstock colours to Kiti Q this morning. Have got some myself to play with - should be fun!
I've almost finished one of the challenges for the SAM Elsie Challenges competition. My mind has been in a bit of a fuzz over this - I signed up and then got completely sidetracked - still have another whole page to do and upload by tomorrow. Will share when I'm finished. Off to scrap now.
