This is a LO for challange masters Scrap that tune. My journalling reads "You may not think so looking at your albums but you do have a mother, it's just that I am usually the one on the other side of the camera.

Boutique Stash Stomper

The stash stomper challenge on Scrap Boutique was to use 20 buttons or brads and they also gave a sketch to work with. It's not a sketch I would usually have been drawn to but I love how this turned out and I made a small dent in my button stash.
How cool is the photo booth app on the iPhone? It's not often that I like a photo of myself but these pics with Tan sum up our weekend away together perfectly. Lots and LOTS of laughter.

May Kraft it up

Here is my first LO from the weekend. This month challenge over at KIU was a LO without any patterned paper and there are some stunning entries already. I have painted, stamped, doodled, distressed and stitched on mine and I didn't even miss using PP!  I love this verse from Dr Seuss and it suits DD down to the ground.

I am feeling wonderfully refreshed and relaxed after a fabulous weekend away, filled with scrapping, chatting and laughter. Throw in not one but TWO massages, wonderful food all prepared for us, a little bit of shopping, lots of raffle and bingo prizes, money raised for Breast Cancer and surrounded by friends and what more could a girls want???  I managed to complete five LOs, three cards and do a class between all of that as well.
I forgot to take a photo of my car loaded up with all of our gear but picture the back of a Territory with the back two rows of seats down full of all of our precious stash! Tania just about wet herself when she saw Raches huge suitcase, not full of clothes, but full of her crafting essentials.

Thanks girls for the great company and thank you Jill for organizing EVERYTHING, you know we will be backnext year, you couldn't keep us away if you tried!

I'll be back soon to show you what I got done while we were away.
Thanks for dropping in.

Time for a new Scrapjacked challenge and boy are there some wonderfully talented ladies waiting to inspire you.  In my DT layout  I have used gorgeous Prima Botanicals papers, a mix of Prima and some handmade flowers and the ribbon and hatpins are from Tattered Inspirations. I had a heap of pics that didn't really need a whole LO of their own (although a couple did) so I have put them all together as a snap shot of 2010.  Hope you will join in the fun this month, I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.


April Sketch

Oops, I started this post last week but forgot to put it up. This was for a sketch challenge for Ch{all}enge Masters. I have used Crate Paper Recollections papers along with Glimmermist on a kraft background, a Prima flower and bits and pieces from my stash. There are lots of new challenge up over there now, go check 'em out.
