Australia Day Pics

Just thought I’d share some pics from yesterday.  Had a BBQ to celebrate my birthday (which is tomorrow).

A little froggie that visits mum & dad nearly every night (appologies for bad pic but it was taken inside, at night)

& my Aust Day temp tatt (thanks to my brother) (OMG scary legs ROFL)

Hope all in Aust had a great day.

DT calls & a new challenge

Well I didn’t make the Prima DT 🙁 No big suprise really. THought I might have got a email to say thanks but no thanks thou (but with heaps of applicants I may get one later) Check out the 2008 team here. Might stalk some galleries so I can see what they are looking for, for when they put out another call.

Gonna try for the Scrapware DT. Just need to pick the LOs & finish off an OTP piece and then submit my app. Wish me luck!

Also Little Scrapbook Shop are holding a doodling challenge so I am so taking part in this as I LURVE to doodle.

Okies off to find some pics to scrap for MS challenges


A couple of new digi layouts

So I know I’m on Laura White‘s CT but I seriously love her products & want to share with you her AWESOME doodles, more specifically her Notebook Expressions series. Seriously awesome.

Anywho I’m starting a digi art journal & here’s two pages from it using Laura’s doodles

OTP, Art Journals & Cyber crops

Got the OTP challnge at Mystical Scrapbooks done. The challenge was to alter a mint tin BUT the tin had to serve a purpose.

Here’s my first (yup I’m making two) – a change tin.

Two cyber crops last night, one for ScrapWorld & one for Mystical Scrapbooks. Only got one LO finished thou. I’ve decided I am doing an art journal this year (after buying one last year & not doing it lol)

One of the MS challenges was to create a page that shared our 2008 resolutions. The page had to include a pic of ourself, journaling in list form, use black, white & one other colour (I chose purple) & some bling. So anywho I’ve made this my first page of my 2008 AJ.

Still have to scrap a blurry pic (& use 10 brads min), a page with purple pics, a page about a game & a page about my scraproom. Fairly easy as I have ideas for all of them. Will share pics later & update the great scraproom adventure 😉

The Great Scrap Room Adventure

So I have a room. I’m going to use this room from scrapbooking. I’m going to blog about my adventures in setting up & organising this room. Along the way I’ll share pics, layouts & hints & tips.

ATM I scrap on our kitchen table, only real problem with this is hubby & his mates also use said table of a weekend to play D&D, so your’s truely has to clean up the table every Saturday. Anywho, there is a room on the back of our garage that I’m gonna turn into my scrap room/cropping space (so I can have friends over to scrap). Only real problem atm this room out the back has no net connection, that & my computer for out there (yeah I own two computers – we have 5 working computers plus a laptop & numerous non working computer at our place – hubby’s into computers) is sitting in bits cause I needed a hard drive for another project (yup I’m a computer nerd ;))

Will post before pics on Saturday. Feel free to share pics of ur room or any sites you think are helpful.
