oooops forgot one!

I started this LO at the retreat using one of Kym's gorgeous sketches.
Yet another LO of Mitchell doing what he does best............playing.
Better scrap a LO of Ashleigh soon or she will think I dont love her!!
I have again used the wonderful Lime Rickey PP from BG so bright and colourful and had a go at paper curling.......quite pleased with the result.


By the skin of my teeth!!

I got the final LO for the Schools In competition completed
This week was Social Studies
Photos had to be place either horizontally or vertically to represent longitiude or latitude lines on a map. An easy one to see out a fun competition.

Just one more share before I get the kiddos up and ready. Here is my Blind Scrap LO from the CC last weekend.

Have a wonderful day!

School's In

I have really been enjoying this competition over at Scrapdango.
The girls have come up with some very clever criteria based on school subjects
So far I have only been able to complete 3 of the 4 main LO 's and will sadly miss out on getting the electives done.

Here is week 2 Science
Picture of an animal - our pet Indian ringneck
Use a technique - alcohol inks on title and crackle paint on chippie bird
Mist or paint
Extra Cred
Fussy cutting
sewing and a journal spot.

Week 3 English


At least two different fonts in the title

Use book paper/script PP or stamps

Journalling needs to be 'Once upon a time' story or a letter to the person
Extra Cred

Include a quote

Use lined paper

I have on more LO to get done so I'd better get my skates on.
It's due tomorrow!

Queensland Retreat

I left for the Scrap and Craft with T retreat on the 16th and had the best 4 days a girl could ask for! I stayed with the gorgeous Kym and her beautiful boys, they made me feel so welcome and spoilt me with their hospitality...........THANK YOU!

I got to shop at the Printblocks warehouse!

Oh man that place is HUGE and totally did my head in LOL!!

So I only spent $100.

Friday we drove down to Lennox Head, which is about 10 minutes from Bryon Bay and yes I did yes a hippy or 20!! You can feel the relaxed vibe of the place and it is just beautiful.

At the retreat I knew I wouldn't get much done, mainly because I'm a loner scrapper. So get get a set of ATC, some swap items and my CC and monthly challenges complete, was outstanding for me!

The accomodation was nice, the food was endless and the girls were lovely.

Had a great time sharing, chatting and laughing so much our stomaches hurt!

Just a couple of snaps from the weekend

Shortly after take off from Adelaide

From L to R Laraine, Me and Kym

Arriving home..........City of Adelaide.

The weekend was top off nicely for me by winning a $165 voucher to spend at Tanyah's store!!

How cool is that!

Rain rain go away

It has been tipping it down here for the last 24 or so hours, thunder and lightning....and the wind!! Thought the roof was going to lift off.
Perfect weather to hibernate and scrap.

Being the start of spring I thought a spring themed challenge was in order for the girls over at Artistic.
Create a LO using the lyrics or song title of Elvis Presley's Spring Fever.
The only other criteria is to have a repetitive shape on your LO.

Here's my sample

The 1st also mark the start of the School In competition at Scrapdango.
First week Maths......yuk!
But I loved the criteria.........grid/graph paper, 2 or more geometric shapes, and numbers.
Extra credits could be gained by adding these extras........ruler, a pattern and/or maths symbol.
Covered it all in this LO of Ash enjoying the waterslide at Semaphore

Best get back to the scrapping we have our first elective to complete Music!

And I need to start packing for Queensland and the retreat at Lennox Head...........just under two weeks before I meet fellow DT member Kym. Cant wait!!!!
