Another LO share...

Just a few LO's I've done in the past week - here's one using the new Jillibean Soup paper - I'm in LOVE with that dotty stuff!!LOL (I'm such a sucker for red dotty paper) And what do you know, a card using that SAME paper!

And this one I did today for absolutely no reason -I was scrapping with my MIL and SIL and so just scrapped with no 'stipulations' - it was nice :)

I know - the circle thing again - I'll get over it soon!!LOL (and have just noticed what a washed out pic this is - sorry bout that - I think it's glare)

It's a Cybercrop!

Karens' Scrappin Kupboard cybercrop is on tomorrow night and check out that "refer a friend" deal - you could win a $20 voucher just for referring a friend, and having them complete one of the 4 challenges!! Woohoo.
There are also prize packs to win for the 70's trivia and 70's bingo - bingo words are up now HERE so go and choose yours! And here is a sneak peek at my sample - but don't let it fool you into thinking that it has ANYTHING to do with Valentine's because it doesn't - it's just my interpretation of the criteria!
Hope to see you there!!

I'm SO good!!LOL

2 posts in 2 days - my oh my........

Feeling like a challenge?? try this on for size.
KSK are starting a new monthly colour challenge and this is Feb's combo - turquoise, black, lime and orange - LOVE it!
If you'd like to be in the running for a $25 Karen's Scrappin Kupboard voucher then just upload your LO's by the end of the month. (you are to use all these colour as well as a bit of black and white if you so desire - no other colours)
And here is my LO - can anybody notice Mr Vile's big mistake?? (sorry - watched Monsters Inc too many times!LOL)
I've included a pink button on mine as I figured it needed it BUT you aren't allowed too!LOL. I'm not allowed to enter so I figured I get to break the rules!LOL
"The Annoying Big Sister"

And for another challenge you have until the end of MARCH to enter this sketch comp at KSK also - thats heaps of time and this sketch is just so adaptable - you can't NOT do it!lol
Once mine is done I will post here too.
For once I might even elaborate a bit on my life seeing as I normally just post LO's and thats it.
This weekend I'm driving WAAAAYYY down south (hope you appreciate that, Bon!!!LOL.) to go and stay at Sandie's house Miss Bon is coming over for visit - how cool is that? it will so weird to meet all these people in real life. The only one I've met before is Steph, so it will be a bit surreal meeting them (apologies to Adam Hills for misuse of the term 'surreal'........).
Hope they like me!!LOL.

ANyway - got to do the bus 'thing' - bye!

Oh, has Australia Day been?..................

I just read this on someone's blog and thought it was so funny - and true! So I know it's a bit late for Australia Day - but you know, isn't it fashionable to be late??

You know you are Australian when……
1. You know the meaning of the word “girt”.
2. You believe that stubbies can be either drunk or worn.
3. You think it’s normal to have a leader called Kevin.
4. You believe the phrase “smart casual” refers to a pair of black tracky-daks, suitably laundered.
5. You’ve made a bong out of your garden hose rather than use it for something illegal such as watering the garden.
6. You believe it is appropriate to put a rubber in your son’s pencil case when he first attends school.
7. When you hear that an American “roots for his team” you wonder how often and with whom.
8. You understand that the phrase “a group of women wearing black thongs” refers to footwear and may be less alluring than it sounds.
9. You pronounce Melbourne as “Mel-bin”.
10. You pronounce Penrith as “Pen-riff”.
11. You believe the “l” in the word ” Australia ” is optional.
12. You can translate: “Dazza and Shazza played Acca Dacca on the way to Maccas.”
13. You believe it makes perfect sense for a nation to decorate its highways with large fibreglass bananas, prawns and sheep.
14. You call your best friend “a total bastard” but someone you really, truly despise is just “a bit of a bastard”.
15. You think “Woolloomooloo” is a perfectly reasonable name for a place.
16. You’re secretly proud of our killer wildlife.
17. You believe it makes sense for a country to have a $1 coin that’s twice as big as its $2 coin.
18. You understand that “Wagga Wagga” can be abbreviated to “Wagga” but ”Woy Woy” can’t be called “Woy”.
19. You believe that cooked-down axlegrease makes a good breakfast spread.
20. You believe all famous Kiwis are actually Australian, until they stuff up, at which point they again become Kiwis.
21. Hamburger. Beetroot. Of course.
22. You know that certain words must, by law, be shouted out during any rendition of the Angels’ song Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again.
23. You believe, as an article of faith, that the confectionary known as the Wagon Wheel has become smaller with every passing year.
24. You still don’t get why the “Labor” in “Australian Labor Party” is not spelt with a “u”.
25. You wear ugh boots outside the house.
26. You get choked up with emotion by the first verse of the national anthem and then have trouble remembering the second.
27. You believe that the more you shorten someone’s name the more you like them.
28. You know, whatever the tourist books say, that no one says “cobber”.
29. You understand that “excuse me” can sound rude, while “scuse me” is always polite.
30. You know what it’s like to swallow a fly, on occasion via your nose.
31. You still think of Kylie as “that girl off Neighbours”.
32. You know it’s not summer until the steering wheel is too hot to handle.
33. Your biggest family argument over the summer concerned the rules for beach cricket.
34. You shake your head in horror when companies try to market what they call “Anzac cookies”.
35. You understand that “you” has a plural and that it’s “youse”.

Anyway - onto other things.......
Here's Anna's sketch for this month - upload your LO to the gallery by the end of Feb and you will go into the draw to win a $35 voucher with free postage!
And here's my take on it - I just changed the photo around a bit. (all products available at Anna's Craft Cupboard except for the tiny bit of woodgrain contact)

And here's just a few I don't think I've shared.
Sports day


Christmas 2008 (this one is done as a step-by-step on Anna's blog HERE)
