Scrapping Outback Chippie High

I have finished the first week of Chippie High at Scrapping Outback. Once again Sandra did not disapoint with this class. Lots of mess with glitter and embossing powder but lots of fun. With 40 students in 'school' there is bound to be plenty of inspiration in the gallery. Head on over and check it out.

Part 1 - Holographic titles

Part 2 of the class was Faux Opals.
I can't wait for WK 2.

OK here is the layout for Lorrie for the 'fair'.

Hope you like it lovie. I LOVED creating with these new Kaiser Mumma Bushka papers - YUM YUM..

Well I am off to check out the Chipboard HighSchool competetion over at Scrapping Outback. The last Chipbaord School was so fantastic and I learnt so many great techniques that I simply had to join again. I have been so slack over their lately (SORRY SAN, RACH AND JULES I still love ya's). So head on over to the gallery to check out the gorgeous entries.

Mumma Bushka

I received these papers and book from Lorrie from Scrapbook Capital. At first I wasnt sure what to do with them but I got my Babushka dolls out for Zoe to play with and started snapping away. Then I thought of a counting book for her - which she loves.

This little book will be heading to Lorrie for her 'fair' next weekend just as soon as I get the layout done that goes with it.

Finished Scrap Caps March CC before the deadline this month

Ok I did it - I got all the challenges done this month.
Hetty's Challenge - I was so pleased with how this turned out. The challenge included using 2 photos (grandparents related) and distressing. I tore, inked and sanded and the Brown Coredinations cardstock I wet and then rubbed with my fingertips.

I just love these photos of Zoe when she was about 5 weeks old, meeting her great Nana Kearney (chris' nana) for the first time. These pics are so precious to us as Nan died not long after these photos.

I have used the gorgeous Websters pages papers (amongst my favs at the moment) - Bee Balm.
And here is the card I completed for Sharon's card challenge.

You should check out the other gorgeous entries in the March CC over at Scrapbook Capital.

I've been playing - and it was fun

I received some gorgeous NEW My Minds Eye papers from The Scrappin Kats last week and they are OH so yummy. Here is a layout I did of my gorgeous girl and her 'adopted' nanny Jen (its been way to long since we caught up too). I just had to share it.I have also completed 2 more of the fantastic CJ comp layouts for Scrapbook Capital.

Round 6 - quotes
Using the yummy new Rusty Pickle Chocolate Covered Cherries papers. Quote is one of my absolute favs and also noted to be in Kathryns siggie (wink).

and Round 7 - Home Sweet Home
- thanks so much for the inspiration Lorrie. HUGS

This weekend is the Scrap Capital march cybercrop. It is always so much fun chatting to these ladies on Friday night - even if we have earthquakes and cyclones circling our great country. Hugs to Lorrie after the fright of her life on Friday night with an earthquake in Victoria.
The challenges this month are fantastic - grandparents theme which is great because I have some photos I have wanted to scrap for ages.
My OTP challenge was to make a bookmark - cause all grandparents have soooo much time to read!!!! I have seen several of these all over the net. They are made with a recycled envelope and are so easy.
The cute little bird is stamped using a Kaiser stamp onto Shrink Plastic - which I havnet used for ages!!! It was fun.

I have also completed Julies gorgeous sketch. I incorporated Kylies pink and mauve challenge as the clever chickie is now over on the Design Team for The Scrap Pile (well done sweet). you know 2 birds with 1 stone and all that (hope thats OK).

Still have Hettys to finish - love distressing. And Sharons card challenge. Love these weekends - cause they really make me scrap.

Hi There

Ok so this is my first post to my blog. Just wanted to brag a little - I won the Professional Wedding layouts section for the RNA show (Our Brisbane Royal show) Scrapbooking fine arts competition. I also won the scrapbooking overall exhibitor award - how's that. I only entered one double page layout and that won - YAYYYY!!!
