Time flies...

Days and weeks just seem to be blurring into one another at the moment and I can't seem to get myself organised.  I have created a list, so that's something at least... but I seem to be adding to it MUCH more quickly than I am crossing things off! ;)

I DID get a LO done in under an hour this morning though.. and I really like it...  back to (reasonably) simple... back to basics... back to BasicGrey basics! ;) Thanks Vicki, Jo and Clori for getting this range in at Tomorrow's Memories and letting me play with it.  I seriously think this is my absolute favourite scrapping range ever...


Have you had a look at the latest challenge at Scrap the Boys?  I hope you will join in... heaps of inspiration,  fabulous prizes to be won and swaps if you are interested.


I have also being playing with the new Twiddleybitz releases... but they are still under wraps until the Sydney Paper Crafts Festival... but I will post some pics soon I promise! ;)

In the meantime Tiff is running a fabulous giveaway over at the Twiddleybitz ning... 

Scrap Space Bonanza

Show Your Space For A Chance To Win!



OK girls, here's what we are going to do. Once you have your photos, post them to your blog and leave the link here so we can go check out your wonderful spaces.

If you would like to be in the running for a package of Twiddleybitz, then you must leave a comment on each person's blog who leaves a link here. Then by the end of this month or maybe a little longer, depending how many have entered, I will draw a random winner of the Twiddleybitz, names being entered from the comments. How does that sound? Of course I will be showing my space but will not be in the draw.

So you can start posting whenever you are ready to. This going to be so much fun, you can do before and after or just a random shot you like, whatever you wish, there are no rules except for supporting each other and leaving comments to be in the draw.

Have fun now and I am so excited to see all those wonderful spaces........

Come and join in the fun... I don't know about you but I love sticky beaking at everyone's creative spaces. ;)

Hope you and yours are well...

More twiddling to share...

I hated this LO when I first did it... HATED it! So much so in fact that I took it to the Twiddleybitz Trade Show recently and left it in my bag... and didn't give it to Mrs TBZ for the display.

I very nearly pulled it apart... but I left it a few days then sat down and worked out what was not working... it was the photo... I had the same print but in colour... so I changed it to a sepia version... and now I think I like it! ;)

Bit OCD I know... but some LOs do that to me... and I can't sleep until I get it right! ;)

This one of Austin was the Splatter Proof class I taught at Tomorrow's Memories recently... you splatter the paint (I used Making Memories Scrapbook Colors™ acrylic paints) onto the page with a drinking straw then heat it (gently at first then on high) with a heat gun just as if you were melting embossing powder and it POPS!  It makes a cool sound and puffs up giving a very cool texture and appearance.


This is one I did for Tomorrow's Memories AGES ago (I took the photo just before the twins were born while I was getting everything organised for their arrival) but can't for the life of me remember if I shared it or not... so I am. Baby clothes on my line again... Who'd have thunk it? ;)  Especially when you read this! ;)




We are having lots of lazy, pyjama days at the moment... I love the school holidays... BUT I have 101 unfinished projects on the go and not enough time or mojo to get them all done.  Slowly but surely I will get there... luckily for me those that matter are patient! ;)

Happy holidays to you and yours... before you know it Christmas will be here... who is getting organised?  Not me for one! ;)

I {heart} Steampunk!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the latest Steampunk inspired cogs, clocks, swirls and gorgeousness.  I simply cannot get enough of it...  teamed with Graphic45's Steampunk Debutante papers and diecuts it is even better!

This is me 13 and a bit years and 4 children ago.  Actually, it was a bit of a turning point in my life...  these papers and Twiddleybitz pieces really help convey the story I am telling too.



... and another wedding photo scrapped... that makes 3 all together now! ;)



I have had a bit if a horrid run the last few weeks... actually make that months!  I have heaps of scrapping and sharing to catch up on but blogger is not playing nice and making uploading a chore... so just these for now.

Thanks for still stopping by... hopefully life will get back to normal some day in the not too distant future...  though I am beginning to wonder what that entails... I think this might just be my normal! ;)

I hope you are enjoying the school holidays... I am... These are the days that I reap the rewards of my efforts of teaching my children the fine art of sleeping in! ;)

Love to you and yours...
