Slow day today, in LO land..

Today I completed 2 Lo's and they were both about Eve, she really is becoming a focus for my scrapping. My sister is happy because i gave her an album for Christmas with Eve's pages so it will be full before too long.
My first page was a sketch challenge from

I think Evie looks really cute as Rudolf..
My next page was from the sketch challenge over at Artistic Document. Kym set a sketch challenge, this is the sketch i had to work with

and this is what I created

I had a lot of fun with this LO because I actually did some painting and I used glimmermist and my latest product liquid pearls {becoming a fav product}.I really like these 2 colours together.
After I completed these 2 Lo's I decided to go through my albums to reflect on what i have created over the years. Gee it's amazing how your style changes over the years, I cringed when I looked at my 1st few pages. After that I decided to clean out my paper rack, Shaylee's Girl Guides are going to be getting some paper.Well I better get back to my cleaning up.

It's amazing how much scrapping you can do in one day!

Today, I had a scrappy day and I completed a lot of things that I have wanted to do for awhile. I haven't been able to scrap for the last week and a half as we have been shearing. This is what i have achieved.
Over at I joined into the Negative sketch. I did a LO on Eve, i just love her little pig tails....not surprising, my kids always hide when i bring the camera out.

I joined in Terri's January challenge over at the challenge was to create and make a book mark, I decided to make a book mark that slips on to the page.

I continued on my challenge to use lots of my scraps and my stash in the "Biggest Loser Challenge over at<
I completed a few more missions.
Mission #6
To do some hand cutting & to use this on a Lo or a card. I decided to create a couple of cards, here's what i created.

Mission #7
Was to create some emblies, whilst using your punches, dies and embossing folders.
As i had recently purchased some Tim Holtz dies,I decided to tizzy up some of these to use on Lo's or cards.

Mission #8
To use the circle sketch again, but to add some stamping. i made another card for this challenge.

Mission #9
For this challenge you had to create a LO from a sketch and you also had to use 3 different alphas in the title.
For my Lo i did a picture of my BIL Winston with his cute little girl Eve on her 1st Birthday. Poor Eve had an ear infection on this day, so she doesn't look happy.

Mission #10
For this mission you had to alter some chipboard and then add it on to a Lo or a card.
I chose 2 create a couple of cards. For my 1st card {Hello} I sanded my chipboard added some ribbon and some ribbons.
For card #2, I sanded the emblie, I added some liquid pearls, added a eyelet and a chain.

This is what I have achieved today, but the worst thing is i now have a 'MONSTER' mess to clean up. I still have a few LO's that I would like to complete over the next week because as of Friday I am back at work. :(

Biggest Loser Challenge....

I have joined in the Biggest Loser challenge over at the mission is to clean up and reorganise your scrap area and your stash, whilst on this journey you are also given some challenges to do. I completed 5 of the missions over the weekend. I have used up alot of my pp scraps and I have also reorganised my scrap area, which means I can actually find what I am looking for.
Mission #1
For this mission, you had to clean your desk and then produce a LO from a sketch that was provided and you had to use scraps from your stash. I used a picture of Eve for my inspiration.

Mission #2
For this mission you had to use card stock as a base and also use the sketch that was provided by Nati. I found inspiration from some pics that were taken when I went on Yr 9 camp. All the students had to go on the high wires, alot of the students were frightened of heights, I went up first to try and shame alot of the kids..It didn't work because alot of the kids stayed on the ground and wouldn't get off it..I was so proud of what I achieved and I wasn't scared at all.

Mission #3
This mission was to scraplift a LO and using at least 5 different pp. I drew inspiration from a LO that I did of my niece Maddie, her LO was titled "Model", this LO is featured on my blog. I really enjoyed doing this LO because I actually did a LO on myself, this is something I don't often do.


This challenge was to use a 4/5 different types of pp to create a patchwork background using a sketch.
I created my LO by using a picture taken at Eve's 1st Birthday. I really enjoyed using my cricut and using up some of my stash of scraps

Mission #5
Today's challenge was to create a LO using scrap paper and you also had to add a banner.
This is a LO of Eve she is on the sea saw, she loved every minute of it.

Time for an update..

As it's a New Year I decided to update my blog.. Gee it took me awhile to get it all alined.
I have been so busy of late as we started shearing on Wednesday, I have to cook for 10 people so it has eaten into my scrappy time. I have been cooking in all my spare time, i have tried some new slice recipes, the kids have loved them.
I am hoping that I may be able to scrap this weekend.

2012, A Scrappy New Year..

On the 1st of Janurary I think I got a bit excited and i did 4 LO's now I hope that I can keep this up over the year.
Last year I went to Roshi and Oliver's wedding, Roshi was married in a gorgeous white sari and then she changed into the most amazing pink dress. This LO was created for a the colour challenge over at
. i used the new the paper and elements from kaiser.

I created this next LO for a challenge over at the challenge was to create a page using a page with a preprinted border. this is my nephew Baxter and my niece Eve. They love having cuddles together.

My next LO was for a Friday Night Challenge over at, you had to create a LO by getting inspiration from a picture of a storm. The colours were purple, pink, orange and a small amount of white. I don't normally use purple so i struggled for a little while

This Lo is from the base challenge at, we were given a base and then we had to add to it..I love this picture of Eve, it was taken at a Christmas in July function, she looked so cute
