Scrap The Girls

The wonderful Kate asked me to be the featured scrapper this month over on the SCrap the Girls blog - I feel very honoured!!
This is my LO I did using this months criteria - which is
J-jewels (bling)
O-orange coloured pp or cardstock
Y-yellow embellishment
and also use lyrics out of a christmas carol as your title
and of course to be girly themed (with the exception of Santa!)

Sketch at Anna's Craft

A LO using Kaisercraft's "Belle" range.

And a couple of very Amanda Hall LO's - LOL! (Sorry, Amanda) The "pea pod" lo is blatantly scraplifted off Amanda's "Sunday 9.30am" LO in the latest SM. The original is absolutely gorgeous and mine is a bit simpler - prob needs something else - but I loved that the journaling sticker (October Afternoon) had a pea pod on it!.
This was my very quick effort at making a vegetable costume out of what I had at home (I live a bit 'in the sticks!'_ and found a green sheet and cut up Bunnings bags for the peas!LOL
This first LO though - is very much inspired by Amanda Hall's work too - although not straight out scraplifted off a particular LO!

Oh - and speaking of scraplifting (or 'jacking') - check THIS out that I found on Leeann's blog today - what a nice surprise. (and just quietly I like Leeann's LO better than my own!LOL)
Here's the new sketch up at Anna's - upload a LO to the gallery using this sketch (by Wendy Smith) by the end of the month to go in the draw to win a $35 voucher at Anna's with free postage.

anyhoo -night!

Kaisercraft Advent Calendar

I finished this today!LOL. Better late than never - and think of the days I don't have to put stuff in now!
(Have used the Dear Santa papers from Kaisercraft and some Collections chipboard shapes with Tim Holtz distress crackle paint-all available at Annas Craft)
I'd heard these take a lot of time and work - but honestly this didn't take me long at all.
I didn't paint it - but this wasn't a time saving measure - I just like the 'kraft' colour.
And then I just did all the drawers while talking to my MIL yesterday - didn't take all that long and then it just left decorating the drawers and doing the little LO in the middle.
So it may have been a good thing I went into it thinking it was a lot of work because I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was! well worth it!
(My plan is to change the middle bit each year - but I didn't put 2009 on it just in case I don't!LOL)
