CISters night in

Lana the fabulous boss lady of CIS has organised a night of scrapping,comps,prizes,chatting and fundraising for Breast Cancer research.$1 from each classkit/access purchased for Kerryns class will be donated and Laura has created a class kit and she is kindly donating $2 for each kit sold and I have donated some of may handmade flowers as a prize on the night too :D I think its something that all women and girls should be aware of and every little bit towards finding a cure helps us all. My gorgeous friend Kirsten is a breast cancer survivor and she is the most amazing person *mwah* you are awesome lovely :) If you are reading this you know I think you are fandabbydosey :) So come on girls come and join us on the night everyone is lovely and I know you will have a fab time!

Big weekend.......

of shopping,scrapping,having and being a visitor and making flowers!!LOL! I went and spent the day with Nic on saturday and beofre we got stuck into scrapping we went to pillowtalk and man oh man I got some awesome bargains!I wont say how much because some are for peoples christmas pressies lol but lets just say there is nothing quite as satisfying as getting something at 70% off :D Al's mum and her hubby spent the weekend at our place too and it was fab to catch up with them :) I went to spotlight yesterday with Rose and we got some groovy bargains there too!Including new colours for my flowers ;-) but Im not going to show them yet mwahahahaha evil arent I!!Wont be long til they are on show I just wanted to do some examples with them first :) While I was at Nics we watched a SU dvd lol it was awesome!!I sat there enthralled in techniques doing the "I wanna try that!"thing and Nic just nodded saying "told ya it was cool!"lol so anyway one of the things on the dvd was making a diarama card (probably spelt diarama wrong oops lol) so we where super keen to have a go and I decided to christen my jungle stamps :) Liz had a challenge this weekend in the scrapboutique cybercrop to change the cardstock or patterned paper in some way so I changed mine by colouring,stamping and doing some cool ink techniques on the back piece..........It was fiddly but you all know I LOVE fiddly stuff hehehe

I are probably shocked and it isnt often that this colour sees the light of day on my blog but yes it is purple :O Chels had a changeover challenge on the cybercrop and mine was swapped with Sharon who challenged me to use purple,distressing and lace :) I like how it turned out ......even with the purple LOL
Two gorgeous ladies in my life my Ma and my Granny *mwah* loveyaloves :)

I did another of my vines on this one......oh and before I forget a few girls have asked me if I am selling them .....what do you think? Should I? I think I might make a couple and see how they go :)
This is for the final challenge at enchanted scrapbookings indulgence challenge.It was to scrap about your scrap space or you scrapping omg thank heavens for the soft focus in picasa to hide my mess behind me PMSL I love these colours and have made an executive decision to make them the colour scheme in my scrap room :DThis year Im going to ask my santas for either vouchers or items in these colours (storage boxes etc) so I can get my room done up purty :D Im going to rip up the carpets too yay bye bye carpet lol
This is for the final challenge in the scraptwist challenge at 123 scrapbook :) To scrap a LO without patterned paper......all just cardstock. I gave my cuttlebug a workout and used some inking to scrap this photo of Al and I from our wedding day :)
Phew this has been a long post!Sorry lovelies if you are still reading this *mwah* thanks lol

Im off to post some flowers orders :D Have a fandabbydosey day everyone!Thanks for visiting :)

Just a sneak peek today...

This is a sneaky peekie of one of the LO's Ive been working on for Jules classes this month :) Gorgeous Loire Valley,Heidi swapp and some other bits and bobs :D I'll show the full LO's once Jules has announced them on the shut up and scrap blog :)

Ive been making soooooo many flowers for orders too :D Im a flower making machine lol Today I had an attack of the black singlet ( Family joke- mum always used to wear a black singlet when she was going to do a massive clean so we would all run for the hills at the first sign of the black singlet lol) the "black singlet" mode resulted in an empty wash barrel,spotless house,swept verandahs and the dogs blankie got a wash too.....I even emptied the pantry so I could clean it all down.See told ya it was a black singlet day lol Now Im all set to catch up on my scrapping jobs and a scrapping whispers Im doing with the CISters :)

Okies im off......................oh before I go girls who left comments-it was just a bug no exciting news for me :(

No scrapping.........

for a whole week :O Not by choice I just didnt have my stash with me LOL so Ive scrapped to my hearts content today :D and am happy with what ive done :) Both about me :O far out whats goin on?!?

This is for this weeks indulgence challenge at enchanted scrapbooking :) We had to scrap about what we do for some time out or me time .......I didnt have piccies of me doing any of it so I just used this one and listed my ways to chill out :)

Of course I used some of my flowers on it!I couldnt not!!I have used a chocolate brownie small poppie and a large cream rose :) Very pretty I think :)

More of my flowers and just a wee bit bright....I think the settings on the auto colour thingy bob are a bit skew whiff.......anywhoo I used an electric blue flower ( new) and a small black rose :)
Oh and because I wasnt scrapping I was doing this ...........look at all that prettiness!See thats why I was hanging out to scrap lol

Had a fab time with the family and the dogs behaved (shock horror for once they where good guests lol) but was glad to get home yesterday to be with Al and my scrap stash :) I havent been feeling too flash the last couple of days ....been having nana naps and all which isnt like me at all :( not fun at all so im off to visit the dr hopefully on monday to see what the go is.

Okies im off ......ive got a date with a stack of Loire valley goodies to play with :)

Have a fab weekend and thanks for visiting!

Sketch day :D

Hello lovelies :D Hope you are all good :) Today is my turn to update the CIS sketchblog and this is the first of my sketches for September (OMG cant believe its September already :O) I made this sketch using the free digi kit from Kaiser (thanks kaisercraft!) This week is the debut for Ali and Hilde who are going to be on my team so be sure to pop over to the sketchblog and leave them some love :)

This is my example using the sketch :D I love this photo of Al from our weekend away ( I wont tell you what I said to him in order to snap this very natural grin lol but it did the trick ;-) ) He just looks so relaxed and I this he is a spunk hence the title ....which he will probably not like he hates being the centre of attention......sorry babe but you are the centre of my universe so you get lots of time in the spotlight LOL
Before I say anything I have to say a MASSIVE THANKS to everyone who ordered some of my flowers!!*mwah* Im thrilled to have that stack of orders from all you lovelies :) Plus mega excited that the fabulous Karen and Tam from Wicked Princesses ( who also have a bit of a sale happening at the moment check it out bargains everywhere!!) want to have my flowers featured in their kits and for something a bit special coming soon too ;-) Thanks so much for all your support everyone I appreciate it {{hugs}} I have a flower update for tomorrow........oooh new colours boys and girls!!Im excited!!Stay tuned for that tomorrow :)

Til then Ive gotta to make lol :)

Have a fabulous Friday everyone :)
