Round 9 Amazing Chook Race

Cant believe we are up to round 9 already!
This round saw us visiting Europe, some of us went to Spain others to France and Germany, while I chose to head to Italy. No surprises there really if you know me and my love for great Italian food!!
I used more of the wonderful Emma's Shoppe range by Crate paper and Prima embellishments. I also got out one of my Crafters Workshop templates that I have had for awhile and have been threatening to use.

I just love texture paste, must use it more.

Not long now before we head of to Tassie - a week today YAY!!
Only have two more layouts to complete before I go, didnt think I was going to get thru everything that needed doing but I have.

Hope you have a scrappy day

Who's That Girl?

Dont know about you gals but I dont do layouts on myself all that often. I know that I'm just as important as everyone else and in the future my kids and grandkids (eeeekk!) will want to know something about me. Not that I have shared much here as yet as I need to catch up with Mum and ask her a few questions before I can add my journalling.
This is another 'double up layout' combining a Crafter Club challenge, to use acetate on your layout and Challenge the DT over at Chookscraps.
I added the criteria of fussy cutting and a layout about themselves to the acetate to form my challenge.

Better get my nose back to the grindstone!!

Busy busy

I have so much to do and organise in these two weeks before I head of to Tasmania, I'm positive I'm wizzing around in circles and getting nowhere!

This month over at Artistic the forum girls are running the show in regard to monthly challenges and the upcoming cybercrop. They are doing a fabulous job too! I have been madly trying to get the challenges done, I have completed 2 so far and I am combining another 2, with permission of course!! Will share these in another post.

I am no longer working with the Kaisercraft releases each month.
A real shame as there is some beautiful releases in the next few months.
Tracey has 'promoted' me to work with everything else between Prima, Janine Koczwara gig and Kaiser, now Tania Rigwell show.
So the first lot of goodies I was given is this gorgeous range from Crate Paper - Emma's Shoppe and a stack of Prima embellishments!
This layout is also for Round 8 of the Amazing Race.

Have been sick with good ole tonsilitis and now I have the flu so I'm feeling very flat and mojoless. But I suppose it's better to get all the illness out the way before we go on holidays.
Currently working on the next round of the Amazing Race with more of the Crate Paper, will share soon.

Take care and keep well

Amazing Race - Round 7

We have been visiting Ireland (EIRE) this round.
E -embossing
I -inking
R - repeated sounds (rhyming, alliteration, repeated word)
E - envelope
Here is my take on the challenge

A close up of the cluster for you, just love these Melissa Frances envelopes, so so cute.

I was really inspired by a card by Tracry Holdyk in the current Cardmaking and Stamping Mag.

I loved its simplicity and the butterflies fluttering across the card.

I have a tonne of scrapping to do before we head off to Tassie in four and a bit weeks.

So I'd better get cracking!

Take Care
