So lots of the sites I used to play with and be with have closed their forums and sometimes when I dont feel like scrapping I still feel like chatting!!! So I have had my eye on Scrapbook savvy for a while - my firend Donna plays ther so thought it was time to drop in and say HI. Tehy have some awesome monthly challenges including this one = Its a ABC challenge and you are given some criterion for the letters of the alphabet....this one is X and W
X for some word which means yellow!! and kisses
and W for white and writing.....
I am enjoying scrapping the boys at the moment so thought I would do one for that!
Here is the finished product - yellow and little Xs for the kisses and W for white title and writing - my journalling. This is my second son Lachlan - SUPER DUPER scary smart!! He had just been invited to participate in the inaugural Junior comets ( like an advanced class) along with nine other kids to participate in a series of challenges!!!
Wow - I cant believe it - I am actually scrapping!! Shane has gone away for the night to visit a mate so its just me and the squidlets and so I am enjoying the relative peace and quiet while they are playing outside!!
I have been working on the new kits for SCRAP WITH V so I cant show you yet but it will be released soon -
I also have a PILE of ATCs to work on so am slowly getting through those ......so I hope I will have some show and tell for you later today!!! In the meantime here is a layout I did a litle while ago and it actually has ME in it!!!
Using some gorgeous funky laces and doilies I have in my stash!!
Okay as promised here are some more layouts from the retreat I went to at the weekend......the OH SO FABULOUS Basic Grey Curio papers - I wasnt a fan of BG for a while there but they won me with these !!!
So I have come home from an amazing weekend with some of my favourite women from around Australia - they flew in from Perth, Tasmania, Melbourne and me from a whole 2 suburbs away - LOL.
I maintained my reputation - and stayed up all night the first night with the gorgeous Belynda and Sarah - chatting , scrapping and making the most of the time we had together!!!!
I am going to share a couple of the layouts I did but I will do a few at a time and some I cant share yet!!
I also have to Thank Ness from Scrap with V who supplied us with a FABULOUS selection of fabulous products - I also got to meet her and the fabulous Annette - it was so great to meet them!!
I managed 15 layouts, 1 card, two twinchies and an off the page box......not bad !!
Here are a couple of them!!
My lovely Mum as a little girl. We all made a gift box and then supplied little handmade gifts to include in all the boxes. From the box we won - we had to use at least 5 items to create a card or layout....this was mine...
Next is this...
This was a kit from the gorgeous Emma that I have had sitting in my stash for over a year!!
and these beautiful October afternoon papers
and the final one for today -
My gorgeous cheeky boys - missed them on the weekend but I love coming home to the kisses and hugs....
We are looking at doing the same thing again later this year so I hope I can go again - !!!!
Thanks girls and thanks Dalena for organising such a fabulous weekend!!!
