More old blog posts

Well i have decided its time to start saving money and go on a serious budget... Im determined to do it this time and really start saving.. this means im on a serious scrap budget... so i was over at shop and crop the other day checking out the forum and was talking about saving money etc... the wonderful Mel was saying she sets herself a challenge that she is not allowed to buy anything until she has completed 20 pages.. So i have decided to take her up on that challenge and try to do this myself as well...So here is page number 1:

ok so im going to try and stick to this.. i will upload my pages here as well as shop and crop.. just so i can keep a track of things....

Well not much else to share with you all today.. I have finished off all my pages for this months EDM theme of Family.. loving this competition so far and im really determined to complete this fully...Well it looks like it is going to rain again today (kaitlyn has her first atheletics carnavil at school tomorrow so cross fingers it dosnt rain too much).. its so cold i wish summer was here soon...have a great day all..



Finally i scrapped.. its been like over a week now since i last scrapped and i was feeling so out of it... i had no motivation what so ever so tonight i sat down put on a movie (got off the computer LOL) and scrapped... although it wasnt a LO it was still scrapping and i totally love what i did... here it is.. my Red Rooster Mug... they are selling these in red rooster for the movie "Over the Hedge" so i went and bought 2 of them when i found out that they came apart and you could scrap them... this one is for myself using my favourite pattern papers of all time Junkitz Flowerful.. love what you can do with these papers...



Love it... ok so hopefully my mojo will stay with me know and i can scrap lots more.. Off to scrapabout Australia tomorrow night for another 8.5x11 class with Alison..cant wait lets see how many pages i can get done...

Oh this makes me 2/20 so only 18 more to go till i can go shopping...

Here are a few pics i was telling you about from our 3 hour bush walk... was sore for 2 days after that episode LOL.. never again...



well im off to bed.. only got 3 hours sleep last night so im hoping for a few more.. and im addicted to a series of books at the moment they are a series called "Stephanie Plum" they are the best books i have read in a long time.. i think there are 12 in the series so far.. and they make me laugh.. they are all about this girl Stephanie who is a bounty hunter and its all about mystery and murder and police things etc... just an unreal story line... so im up to number 6 in the series and i just have to keep on reading them.. i have also gotten my sister into reading them and so i have to keep ahead of her so she can borrrow them off me... so off i go to start on number 6...

Hope you are all having a great week.

chat soon



Finally again i have been scrapping...i have completed 4 pages which brings my total to 6/20 so only 14 to go till i can shop... here are some of my recent pages ...

this was for the shop and crop use your things that make you go HMMM page...

this page was using the purple pack that i purchased from Jen Hall (purple rain material pack)..

this was a page for the 52 challenges (elsie flannigans new book) over at scrap to the max.. you had to use journalling strips on your page...

Loving that im scrapping more again...hopefully i will keep going.. i also scrapped a canvas for a friend of mine with her wedding pics but cant show it as its her pics of her and her husband and son... i hope she likes it..

Ok so whats been happening.. well not alot really LOL.. Im in a scrap slump again seems i cant do anything at home latley.. maybe cause I spend so much time on this computer.. Must learn to get off it LOL...

Have found an awsome new site that im loving at the moment and thats also keeping me busy LOL... such a great site heaps of challenges and its really diffrent.. everyone on there is so much fun, keeps me laughing.. they also produce an online magazine which is great every month... opps better tell you the site ScrapStreet.. go check it out.. this months street is Main Street Disney just happens to be my most favourite thing ever cause its all about Mickey Mouse....

Ok in other news LOL... went to a great day scrapping with Kylie on saturday.. the lovley Alison was there also.. It was at Sue's house she owns this great online store called Scraploot.. WOW is all i can say.. i walked into her double garage that she has and it is just so full of all the new stuff and much much more... i wish i could have lived there LOL.. spent a bit of money but hey i had saved up for that day so i was allowed to spend up big.. i managed to get 2 pages done.. one was actually a page for this month EDM so was quite happy with how it turned out...

Ok i can also share with you my Zig Zag DT pages i did for this month here they are..

this was part of a sketch challenge for this month using the new gorgeous Urban Lily products

another sketch challenge, I did one 12x12 one 8.5x11 and a card sketch.. you can buy this kit and make them up yourself...

this was just a random page i did using the new Urban Lily papers... my little terror..

Oh also forgot to mention my gorgeous Terror got glasses... she looks so cute in them. she only needs to wear them for reading books, writing and things close up computers etc... she is doing really well with them so far so cross fingers it helps to improve her eyes the doctor said she is about 60% long sited in her left eye so this might help her in getting her words around the right way etc...will take pics of the glasses soon...

Not much else is new...im off to see if i can scrap something now... hopefully ill remember to update this blog a bit more often LOL.. sorry Kylie wont happen again LOL

Manifesto: Noun. A declaration of one's intentions.

Starting December first, I will keep a Christmas journal. In it, I will write something every
day to reflect on the holidays of my past, enjoy the holidays of the present and dream
about the holidays of my future. To some, this will be a stack of papers and trivial
scribbles, but not to me. I am taking back my Christmas, I am letting it be something I
relish and, most importantly, I am giving at least fifteen minutes every day to myself no
matter how crazy this season becomes. I hope you will share, encourage and understand
as I make something with my own hands, my own words and my own memories.

I may post some or all of my entries here. Other artists are doing this with me, and you
can see there work here. Or you may
href="http://www.shimelle .com/classes/ 105/its-beginnin g-to-look- a-lot-like">join
us.

Above all: enjoy the season. I will.

Ok ill be back later on to add some pics of what i am going on about.. in the meantime check out all the others blogs and pics...

At the end of your blog, you need to choose 7 people to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them that they have been tagged and to read your blog!
