Here's my scraplift of Emma's LO. I loved how she used the cardstock stickers around her photo..........one smart cookie that girl. Should make the SBM Masters I rekon. Love Hon!
Off to come up with a plan for the CC over at Artitistic Document next weekend. If you have never joined in with a CC over there check it out, they are such a hoot......we all have such a great laugh. The theme this month is 'as time goes by'.

FIL resting place...........Stairway to Heaven is what the local fisherman call this beach because of the excellent fishing. So it seem right to use it as the title for the layout.
Julie, from Lets get Shabby is the guest DT over at Art this month and here is my take on her challenge.
That it! Told you it was quick!

The final thing I have done scrapping wise is making these flowers
Pretty, quick (okay Em I timed myself more like 5 mins!!!) and easy!!!
Thanks for stopping by.

The only full sized LO I have done for ages. Anyone with rough and tumble boys will so get this LO. I swear Mitch will send me broke.......or should I just get shares in a shoe company! LOL
The CC at Art was based on reduce, reuse and recycle. The OPT project was to scrap something you would normally throw away. I, for some ungodly reason, chose to scrap this cotton reel. Really happy with the end result but blimy it was fiddly.
If you are involved in the September Vintage Lady ATC swap at Art and dont wanna see what I have done......dont look any further!!
Going to try crocheting on a LO for Kym's colour challenge..... shades of purple black and white.
Well that's me all done and up to date......blog wise anyway! Going to tackle my BOM cover now. Playing with stencils, inks, stamps and will just make a right o' mess! Oh what fun.
Catch ya all later!

For the letter C Maria want us to do some paper casting. What is paper casting? Choose a stamp and then layer loo paper onto it giving the paper a spritz of water in between layers. Let it dry, trim and them decorate!
Kym's colour challenge for June was brown,green and lots of white. She also wanted 2 JB's rubons and bling. Here's what I came up with
I have also finished my first ever ATC for Scrap around the clock.
Bye for now.

Fantastic isn't it?? And Kerryn is such a gorgeous person.....I hope to catch up with her again.
The only thing I have done since my last post is this LO, which was an online class run by Marie at Hybrid. I must apologise to Em for cutting off one of the bridesmaids but it just wasn't working in landscape.
I got kicked off The Island last week.................a little sad but glad in alot of other ways. I can get some other scrapping done now!! hehe Good luck to the remaining girls Marie, Wendy and Kerryn.
That's all from me for now, but hopefully I'll be a bit more productive over the next week as I am home with whooping cough. Feel fine but just cough alot!!!! Tooorah

The photo of the inchies is not to good being night photo but you get the general idea. Cant wait for the swap to be posted out.
Off to catch up on some CJ's.......only have three here waiting(blush) dont wanna let the team down.

The only other thing I'm doing is a swap of inchies. I need to make 100 (yes 100) 1" x 1" monochromatic squares in orange. Everyone has a different colour and you end up with 10 of each colour. This is what the finished product may look like

Have been really busy this month with doing up our shed ,to make it a games room and scrap space. YAY! And looking for a new car. Got one! Being sick and working !
This has left little time for scrapping. Boooo. Still got lots to do in the shed but it's getting there.
Two LO's to share
First one is for Challenge 8 for the Survivor comp. We had to scrap our scrap space! I seem to be rather tidy in comparsion to the other girls. But I do feel that might change when I have my own area and can just shut the door on it!! hehe.
The second LO is for Ann's April Challenge.
I have done another 8.5 x 11 lovin' this size at the moment.
I have also used product from the WOIN Sultry Kit. These kits are great for those of us that have trouble co ordinating different pp's - everything goes together so well. Check them out May Kits will be revealed soon..............
Emma and Phil
on the safe and rather quick arrival of
Another bouncing baby boy to add to their beautiful family.
Good luck sweet..................3 under 3!!! At least you are surrounded by family and good friends.

This one is for Toni's April Challenge over at Hybrid 4 colours, 4 word title and 4 types of embellishments.
The story behind the blackeye? Giving my son a gentle wake up kiss on the ribs!! He thought I was going to tickle him so he swung his elbow back and POW......just about knocked me out! April fools day to me!!
Off to figure out what to do next
Theme is -- some aspect of being on the Island
1. you must have at least 3 sentences of journalling
2. Your LO must include metal, in any shape or form
3. You must use blue OR green OR beige/sandy colour as your predominant colour
Oh yeah and it had to be a double!!!!!
I've hit a wall at the moment and have hardly scrapped. So I thought I'd try a change in size of LO's. This one is just 2 15 x 30, but I'll be doing 8.5 x 11 to shake things up a bit and hopefully get the juices flowing again.
I've stitched the page protector in half and have also added some embellishments to the outside of the sleeve for something a little different. Photo's from Photobucket - I wish they were mine!!!
Off to finish my first 8.5 x 11!!! Bye

So what goss do I have? My LO was chosen by random over at Butterfly Crafts as the winner for the month...woowhoo. Another $20 to spend at Hybrid and a GD spot for March, rather nervous about the last bit, especially with the criteria that was set. It's almost finished tho and I'll post after the 15th.
The only LO I have to share this time around is one I've done using a challenge pack I put together for my mate Em and I. Couple of years ago we decided to do a SM style 20/40/60 challenge and we are still doing them although not as often as we used too. I think I sent this pack to her back in Oct/Nov last year (blush) Anyhow here it is........................my cute little niece walking around, still rather unsteady but very mobile!!
Okay Em mines done, now where's yours? The challenge for you love is to get it done before bubs arrives in 6 weeks!!
Delivered my LO's for the bushfire ablums the other day. I was really touched when Nae put mine in the crate with the others -there were over one hundred LO's in there! Goodness scrappers are nice people!
I think I've yabbered long enough, I'm off to play with my alcohol inks and see what I can come up with for the next survivor challenge - no pp or purchased embellys!!!! What??
