Back again....Just a quick post to show you a layout I just finished for
S2D4....This was done with a RW ScrapNics Page Designer....It takes all the
hard work out of deciding how to layout your page. The page I did was a 4 square, but there are many
others to choose from....See thge girls at S2D4....I made it look a little 3D, by using rub on angel wings
on acetate, then trimming them and attatching at one spot only. I'm quite pleased how it turned out....Have had the
idea for awhile...just never had the chance to use it !!!!
I'm off to the shop today to collect my DT kit.....Love the new Kayser zoo animals paper (can't remember if that's what it's called) And the robot paper also. With two boys at home, I have lots of photos that would look great with this paper....not to mention our trip to the zoo Dec 08....
Will be back soon....

Ok....here it is......my treasure box.....It just needs some
modge podge and maybe a little more glitter, but other that that it
is essentually finished......
I made it to keep all my little treasures in, that my mum has given me over the years....I really enjoyed making this.....I had to put it away for a few weeks after I had it painted and papered....as I just didn't know where to start...but once I got started again....it was easy !!!!!
I'm going to try and finish a few more 1/2 done projects, before the April DTR kit
Wow...two posts in one day.....who'da thunk.....

same time. One would get better, then the next would get sick. Thank god

Well I'm up early today, have lots to do and then off for a day of scrapping at S2D4.
This is a layout I just finished, but the son I was pregnant with is no 6 1/2.... so some old photos....with three children I have so many baby pages to get done...
I spent all yesterday day cleaning my kitchen, so a day at Di's is just what I need.....Although I mst get organised what to take....that the hard part !!!!!
haven't done any creating lately...just housework...So hopefully I'll have something new to show you soon...

I picked up many a bargain at the garage sale at S2D4.....And I'm a girl who LOVES a bargain.......I got some stamps, a sticker maker (Xyron) some beautiful lace, clear alphas, some Heidi Swap pink cards (A,J,Q,K etc) chipboard alphas (never have enough of them) an envelope stencil and more.....and only spent $50.00.
Like I said....I just love a bargain !!!!
My 6year old was sick this weekend with a stomach virus, so I've spent a few hours washing mountains of bedding....However....all is well now and I'm off to put everyone in bed......
Peace at last !!!!!

Although I must say the paper has grown on me...and now that I have finished these layouts, I have had other ideas on how I would use them.....And I just love the tiny MM
alpha's....You can never have too many of them. I have also been asked by the lovely Ruth of http://www.alteredgeisha.blogspot.com/, for instructions on my Believe canvas, as seen on my blog header. So as soon as get some instructions together, I will add them to my blog for anyone that is interested.
I have a full weekend of Kid's birthday parties (not my kids) A family birthday and a BBq with friends.....not to mention the Garage Sale at S2D4, on Sunday at 11am.....
Take Care, Have a great weekend...

Well.....I have really had a hard time with these papers...And it took me a long time to
even get started. I am not totally happy with my first layout, but the second and the set of cards came after a rush of creativity.....Once I got started, not too bad at all.....
I am also looking forward to the "Garage Sale" at SD4 on Sunday....Lots of great stuff all at Garage Sale prices.....
Oh....and I will post photos of the DT stuff, as soon as I can....Maybe 2morrow !!!!
Also I follow a few blogs, but there is one of my favorites having a giveaway......So you must pop over and have a look....It's called "altered Geisha's Crafty Musings" and always has some wonderful, inspirational, and beautiful creations.....So....go have a look......The link is on my bloglist on my sidebar..... or here.... www.alteredgeisha.blogspot.com

I just love these..... Mel did a class on paper bag books.....to keep your kids photos, artwork, certificates etc..etc.. I really enjoyed making these and the kids just love them...Each double spread has room for the yearly school photo, plus informaton such as favorite subjects, friends, special outing or events for that year.....Plus of course it's decorated differently for each year....The kids come home with things they ca't wait to put away in their own school memories book.....
Have also picked up my new Dt kit for March, and it has some great new papers in it....
Very bright and colourful....Will share later....

This birdhouse will also be a class (an alternative to the Owl house ) If you are interested the girls
at S2D4 will put your name down for this class. Have stocked up on TWBZ stuff and cant wait to use them in my next lot of projects.... Am off to collect my DT kit for March......Hopefully some new things to create with....
Have been playing around a little with Glimmermists and also the Crafty Notions brand of colour mists....These would have to be my new favorite product, along with the new TWBZ range.
I have also been making A School record book, see Mel's recent class, out of paper bags.....they look really cool, and the kis love them. Will post some photos soon. Mel is such a clever lass.......
