Flying pigs........

2 posts in one night - oh my golly goshness!! LOL
Just wanted to overload on Lo's seeing as I have so many to share and don't get around to updating all that often.
Here's another 6x12" for Darcy's album - love this size for something different every now and then. If you want to try this size, you can get the 6x12" page protectors from Karen's Scrappin Kupboard here. And these are some pages done with the Daisy Bucket 'In the Meadow' papers which are just awesome colours - I love this green and blue together - so versatile.

And I booked to go on retreat at the end of October!! YAY. Cannot wait - Nic Anderson and Mardi Winen are going to be the teachers and I can't wait to catch up with Miss Sheree!!

Scrappy stuff

I've been scrapping! As I wrote in the last post, I got my new Heidi Swapp alphabet stamps from Anna's and I love them every bit as much as I thought I would.I have been using them 0n EVERYTHING!! (well, not my - but everything I've been scrapping)
Here's a few things - I've scrapped these photos a few times as I wanted a LO of Ben in each of the kids albums so they remember him when they get older.
I really love that October Afternoon pp too - the black dotty one. Pretty much all the products on these pages can be bought from Anna's store. And here's the October AFternoon paper
Don't you just love the stamps!!
Using October Afternoon pp

I had a visitor on Monday which was just lovely! Steph Mitchell from Bon's forum called in for a cuppa on her way home from visiting her hubby at Yalgoo. It's absolutely amazing, I find, that someone I met online can be the one person that just HAPPENS to drive past my front gate. I mean, NO ONE ever does that. We have lots of visitors, but they are ones that travel to see us - but Steph just happens to drive past my front gate.
It was so nice to catch up with her again and to meet her (very patient!!) daughter!
Anyway - will post again soon as I have more scrapping to share.
And it's getting on to the end of the month now - want another challenge to enter? Kims' sketch over at KSK is a great one - and so easy. And at the moment there's not many entries so your chances of winning are WAY up there!! If you want to check it out - look here.

Love at first sight........

As soon as I saw these stamps on Janet Hopkins blog I KNEW, way back then, that I just HAD to have them and GUESS WHAT?? They're now MINE!!YAY
Anna has now put them up on her site for purchase HERE! So if you want a set you'd better get in quick as she hasn't got many!!
Thats all I'm posting - was just a wee bit excited about them!!LOL

Annas Sept Sketch & Masters!!

The new sketch is up!! All you have to do to win a $35 voucher at Annas store is to do a LO based on this sketch and upload to the gallery by the end of Sept. And to big news - I got a phonecall from Cassie at Scrapbooking Memories mag the other day saying I'd been shortlisted for the Masters!!YAY. Made it to the Top 50 so I'm happy with that - not expecting much more!

Thanks for all the emails and well-wishes I've recieved and a HUGE CONGRATS to the many talented online friends out there that made it too. I tell you, Louise Nelson is the one to watch this year!!

And to the ones that didn't make it - there's one in particular that I was shocked that she didn't get in (she knows who she is!) and another girl that I don't know but I checked out her creations on her blog today and they were FANTASTIC!!! Absolutely gob-smacked that she didn't get in. No pressure.........LOL!!

Bon's Sept stuff

Hey there - here's a really quick post. This months 'kitchen inspiration' challenge (previously known as the monthly comp - but I think we'll have to offically change the name with Bons kitchen fetish!!LOL) is up - you can see the kitchen here.
And here's my LO - using the colours of the kitchen (have used bits of Bon's boy kits over the past few months). Oh - and speaking of kits - if you want one of Bons kits this month you'd better get your skates on as I think they're all nearly sold out - in fact I think the girl one has already. See them here if you want to check them out.(just go into the kit section)
And here's my page for the Paper of The Month challenge at Bon's too - to use Heidi Swapp's Carefree Hearts paper. Very cute paper!!

Anyway - signing off now - will be back later.............
