Ok - it's week 4 of Bon's Scraps BONanza and my challenge is now up! You have to use 90% of product from one manufacturer (excluding your CS). Mine is using 100% of Making Memories products - all from Bon's (there are the new Passport range and I'm in love with that green circley pp!). I've used it on about 3 LO's already!!LOL
Also today is Red Nose Day as I'm sure you're all aware and if you decide to do a spot of pre-weekend retail therapy, BOn's is supporting Red NOse Day by donating 50% of todays profits to SIDS and KIDS. It's a charity very close to Bon's heart as she lost her brother to SIDS when he was only one month old.

And if you're after some 'thinking-free' scrapping and want to create a LO like this one below - then there's step-by-step instructions on Anna's Craft Cupboard blog.
Now yours doesn't have to be QUITE so bright as this one but I'm in love with the new WRMK White Out RAnge (and must get me some more!).

I've made quite a dent in my masters entry now - just waiting on something to do my calendar and then I'm done. I haven't actually STARTED the calendar as such - LOL - but I have all my ideas and all the product there all ready to go - just waiting for something to stick it onto!!LOL. Hopefully it will work out as good as in my head - I will actually have a funky little calendar for next then!LOL (instead of the freebie John Deere one we get - lol)

ANyway - hope you have a fab weekend - I have a sick hubby and we all know how much FUN that can be!!LOL . So wish me luck - or maybe it's him that needs the luck??

Come on, you all know you LOVE a bargain and Bon's Scraps has 25% off storewide!! WOOOHOOOO. But you'd better get your skates on because there's only one day left!

And if you'd like to win more spending money, then do this great Becky Fleck sketch over at Anna's Craft Cupboard and you could win a $35 voucher - $35!!!!
Here's mine - very simple And here's another one I did for a challenge - of my gorgeous girl!! (oh - one of them anyway!)

My mum and dad are on their way up here right now - as it's my birthday tomorrow! They are looking at new utes on the way, so no doubt it will take them about 56 hours to get here!!LOL.
Oh - and I've decided to enter the Masters - I've given myself a tad more time than last year, but not much as now I have to wait on stuff to get here for my calendar that is one of the criteria - now lets just hope it all works out the way it looks in my head!
I've done my single LO, and am halfway thru my 'keepsake' so here's hoping the inspiration stays around!!

A quick catch-up

Ok - to have a quick catch up on LO's and 'stuff' seeing as I haven't really scrapped that much lately but have just re-found my enthusiasm!!
Here's my LO for the current monthly theme comp at Bon's - which is "Happiness". These are just photos of Claire being such a dill up at the shearing shed as soon as I wanted a photo of her! YOu probably can't really see the look on her face but it's a classic. And this one is for the Paper of the Month challenge - also over at Bons'. It's the Bo Bunny Xtreme Teen - 'Teen' pp. And don't worry - that isn;t a full beer!! We have friends over in Denmark that always send us silly presents, so we had to take a photo of the kids with these "stubbie-holder gloves" on!
And now for my first projects for Annas Craft Cupboard!! I got a wonderful parcel of stuff from Anna - I'm so in love with the new Pink Paislee papers!!
This one is using the pink paislee pp and AC thickers
Just showing a close up of the butterfly that I embossed with my cuttlebug - LOVE that effect!
OK - now to think up some exciting stuff to mention - OH THIS IS EXCITING - read the post below and make sure you've signed up for the BONanza!! VERY exciting prizes that I would SO love to win!!
1st prize: $75 shopping voucher
2nd prize: MM leather album
3rd prize: cropper hopper mini-tote

As to normal daily life - Bradley got a new job at the Morawa Ag College, so we're pretty excited about that, and have been spending lots of nights in town at a friends house making his travel a bit easier on him - and making it easier for him to see the kids and me. We've never had lunch or tea so often together!!LOL
And it will be a nice change to know when we are being paid next!!

Ok - was planning on a big post, but am so tired and will toddle off to bed I think. Will post more in the next few days.

Oh - quick note too - for people wanting one of these - and I know LOTS of ppl that do!! Karens Scrappin Kupboard is taking pre-orders for these and they are ONLY $21. They are the new Fiskars Threading Water punch - check them out here.
