Mmmm- look what I made.....

Yes well its   inevitable, on Wednesday I clock  up another year.....and on Saturday we  went  shopping  and  I MAY  be getting a new WATCH!!!  LOL

Pretty huh!!

Anyway - I may  be working with  Leanne to make a class similar  to this  to teach  the Mad  about scrappin  girls so stay tuned...

I have also started packing for the FABULOUS  RETREAT  I am  going to on Thursday - 23  scrap   frenzied women and  even more day  visitors on Saturday.  We have a huge house at Broadbeach on the Gold Coast so I  have STARTED  packing

Look at this

the problem is that I only live  10 minutes away so its easy to  pile up the car with EVERYTHING!!

Wahooooooooo--  I had better make  some  cracker  stuff hey!!!!

Okay  so the  first ATC  round is up at scrapping-miniatures  and  of course the  theme is the Number  ONE......I  wracked my brain and spent ages trying  to decide what to do and this morning I hada little  brainwave - I have scrapped a  little  vintage  piece with ONE of each of my faves.....paper,   sheet music,  heart,  distress paint,  flowers, lace, pearls  etc - you get the  idea.  I only had to make FOUR  so I had  FUN FUN FUN....

Here they are

So  go and check out Scrappin Miniatures -  HERE

This was  my  take on the latest From screen to scrap  challenge - the  challenge  picture was Pirates of The Carribean  but I didnt have any  pirate  type photos so I wwent  with a  popular  Pirate  saying - ARRRGGGGGGHHH_  My  sons and  nephew  pretending to strangle each other.  I love  the  colour  scheme and  it suits  the pic....

Cute huh!!  The  link  to From screen to scrap is over on my toolbar  so check it out!!

I cannot wait.....

to get  my hands on some of   THIS......

I am loving this one....

This challenge  was set by Ness at scrapwithv  for the challenge site  Instead of the February  traditional LOVE  stuff - you had to scrap  about something you HATE and include the colour red and the word BUT.  The thing  I HATE  most in the world is Storms -  thunder and lightning......Im a  bit phobic about them  really!  Anyway - I decided to  scrap  just that - so my  title is  "I dont hate much BUT I do hate storms. - using  those  beautiful Graphic 45 papers that I love so much!!!
So far - this layout is a bit of a favourite of mine....

The photos are of me at Rockhampton - the  reatreat I  went  to last year!!

I forgot about this one...

I did this  for  a challenge  at  challenge heaven - you  had to  include the  quote - which I loved.  The  brown  flowers  hancut  from the background are   from a  vintage  book I have  here - there are  lots of  nice  bits to cut out....Is that wrong?

I have  done some other bits  too  but  they will have to come later  cos they are for kits at Mad about  scrappin....I am  now working on a  layout for Out of the hat  so will be back  after I pick  up the  squids  from school - hope it doesnt  rain!!

Oops  - here it   is  and some  vintage   cuteness that I did  over  the weekend....

The  first  is   the layout for Out of the   Hat - link on my  sidebar,   then a cute   cigar  tin and  then my new   scrappy notes  notebook!!!!
