CHOCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS CHALLENGE

This is a great new challenge I found on The Scrappers Outlet where you must use chocolate brown with 2 other colours, this month was shades of Choc, Aqua and White. I found this challenge just that a challenge as it made me think of how I could use these colours in different ways, it was really good although I am not completely happy with the finished product I'm sure as I do more of them I will develop new skills.

SKETCH CHALLENGE AT TSO

This is my sketch challenge that I did for The Scrappers Outlet my new forum home. I love the colour of this page and of course because it is about my BFF.

Mine of course is Your Still the One by Shania Twain as it was my bridal waltz. This is the first LO I have done of my DH other than wedding layouts. And this is the first time I have used birds on a layout....

SCHOOL HOLIDAYS

Well my school holidays have started with a bang, my Laptop crashed and I lost everything.... Luckily I was able to salvage some of my pics I lost from my BLOG. Now for the next 15days I will have to entertain my 5yr old. I am open to suggestions if anyone has an idea on how to do this.... I thought about the museum, the planetarium etc.

Life has been a bit busy of late, I have had a trip to Sydney to Demonstrate the Cricut cake for Print Blocks, I have started playing netball again and don't I know it.....(bit sore), and lots of things at school, hopefully it will all slow down a bit and I will be able to have a bit of a spring clean over the holidays. Am also thinking a trip to Toowoomba would be nice, oh and some scrapping. We will see how I go.

CRICUT CAKE #2

This is my second attempt at using the Cricut Cake, much better this time as I have figured out a couple of tricks that have worked a treat. The Brisbane Scrapbooking and Papercraft show went well, lots of people interested in the machine and rightly they should be it is great. This Monday I am heading down to Sydney for the day to demonstrate the machine at a food fair at the Sydney Convention and exhibition centre so wish me luck.







SCRAPPING

Here are the layouts I did at the recent retreat I went to.

CRICUT CAKE

I have been lucky enough to be asked by Andrew at Print Blocks to have a play with the New Cricut Cake before it is released here in Australia in a few weeks. After many errors in figuring the right speeds and pressures as well as adapting our Aussie modelling paste to the machine etc I came up with the cake pictured below not my best work but it is the first time I have used the machine and there is no one else to tell me the best methods although I did alot of research on utube.... The machine itself is excellent, so easy to use and with the added bonus of being able to take all the existing cricut cartridges the number of designs that are available is incredible. The designs on the cake below are from the Cake Basic cartridge which comes with the machine. I will be doing another cake this week and will be Displaying the machines capabilities at the Scrapbook and papercraft show this weekend at the convention centre, so if your in town for the show make sure you come and see me on the Print Blocks stand, I'll be the one in the chefs hat....

I'M BACK

Got back Monday from a scrapping retreat, it was a great time, I did a record 8 layouts and an OTP project. The food was excellent and the company was just as good, the room could not have been better. Met some really nice new friends and caught up with old ones. All in all a very good weekend. Now I just have to recover........
Thanks to my MIL for coming all the way from Toowoomba to look after my kids, Thanks Mum I really appreciate it, its nice to have a break now and then.
