Will be MIA for a while

Hope everyone is well, I just wanted to let you all know that I will be out of action for a short (fingers crossed that is) time. I am renovating my scrapping area, so it all had to be packed away while I paint and put shelves in, etc, etc. I hope to be back really soon with pics of my new space..
Til then

Two LO's for you

Believe it or not but this first LO's inspiration came from the junk mail. We got a flyer in the mail for a family fun day at a local estate last week and it really struck a cord with me and next thing I know I have produced this LO within a couple of hours. Hope you love it as much as I do, it's my new favourite.

This LO, I started at a crop at Lisa's house on Saturday we have a great day. Some scrapping was done, chatting and lots of laughs were had. I finished it this afternoon with the journaling.

Lucky me is off to Melbourne for a 3 night stay with girlfriends and the best part is that my lovely daughters get to stay with their father in BrisVegas. I am so looking forward to this weekend as this will be the longest I have had away from my youngest daughter and she is nearly 2. Will be a nice break and the crazy thing is that I have a Scrapping Retreat in February for another 3 nights and 4 days. So 2010 is starting off to be a great year for me, fingers crossed it keeps getting better and better.

Still Gloomy in good Old Brisvegas

The Weather is incredible, I have not seen this much rain in ages and the clouds will just not go away. But I have taken the photo's anyway because I am not sure when I will get a chance to take them otherwise. First here is my OTP project, hope you all like it,

Then we have a couple of Lo's I have done in the last week or so, the first one is of the girls playing in their new sandpit. I know that Owls are so out of fashion but I still find them supper cute, and it suited this photo down to a T....

This one is of Olivia at a park on some play equipment

Better go, as the girls are going to a play centre today and I need to get ready...
Hope you like, let me know

New Directions....

My Scrapping Mojo is still AWOL, so while I wait for it to return home, I thought I would update you on my OTP project. The Great News is that it is finished, put the final touches on it at Coz's Birthday Scrap Bash at Leanne's place on Saturday night but bad news is that the weather has been so miserable in Brisbane since then I have not had a chance to photograph it. Check back in a couple of days and you may find it posted...

I was hinting that I was going to apply for a Design Team position this month but I have had second thoughts and I think I might wait until the second half of the year to put my application in. I am not feeling the best about my craft currently and I do not want to disappoint... So I am going to focus solidly on my scrapping for the next couple of months. I am going to go back to scrapping my girls for their albums, don't worry I am still going to post these on this blog but they may not be of "submittable quality" because I have such a backlog of photo's to scrap.

I am still really excited about my ATC's, I am loving being artistic again and not structured as you have to be with LO's. I am going to explore lots of different styles and mediums, so watch this space....

Lastly, go have a look at Ning Sites I participate in Born2create and SNA because both of them have wonderful sketches on offer for this month. Trust me I will be submitting my interpretations, so need sketches currently... LOL

Well hopefully will post soon with some lovely photo's of my advent calender, so check back in a couple of days
