Hello Everyone! I hope you all have exciting things planned for March. Yep. That's right. March!!! sheesh! But despite the weeks flying away on me, I have some awesome news to share.
Late last year I was invited by the lovely Renate to be a Guest Designer for her blog Scrappeland. This scrapbooking forum and challenge blog is based in Norway and they asked if I would like to create something Project Life style, to help inspire their readers. Of course I jumped at the chance! I rarely get the chance to be a GDT and I was excited that someone would be interested in what I create! LOL!
So here it was, late November and Christmas was approaching. I knew I definitely wanted to document this week and of course, the gorgeous Heidi Swapp had just visited Australia. I had in mind right from the beginning that I was going to combine the two events!
"Project Life 2013 | Week 52"
products used: pp - Heidi Swapp (Believe); alpha - Heidi Swapp (mistables); other - Heidi Swapp: clear embellishments & colorshine; Greatest View badge/flair; staples, twine; tools - typewriter.
I hope you enjoy this video tutorial I've created and if you would like to join in with the challenge I've set, please head on over to Scrappeland.
Thanks for visiting...x

Hi Everyone! I'm back again today (and somewhat late!!) to share another CHA project created for Jillibean Soup.
products used: cs - Kaisercraft; pp - Jillibean Soup (Heart Healthy Red Bean Soup/Soup Staples II); other - Jillibean Soup: paper doiles, pea pod parts, stampables kraft bags, beanstalks (twine), flash cards, soup labels, coordinating stickers; mist, embroidery thread; tools - typewriter, foam tape.
I really love this Valentine's Day collection and was thrilled when given the chance to play along with it. There are plenty of layers here too. *grin* I couldn't help myself! And in the craziness that is CHA... I created this LO within two hours! And that included the online communication with both Kimber and Jill. A small feat in itself considering the time differences! LOL!
This layout will hold all those special notes my Mr 8 likes to write to me. sigh... These love notes will become a more treasured gift in years to come. :)
Thanks for visiting me today...x

Hi Friends! I'm back with another Monday Morning Challenge from Bella Blvd. And this week it is all about long titles!
"Always look on the bright side of Life because Right Now we have Mango to Eat!"
products used: cs - Kaisercraft; pp - Bella Blvd (Family Forever, Max, Lucky Starz); alphs - Bella Blvd; other - Bella Blvd: crochet hearts, stickers, labels; tools - date stamp.
Long enough title for you? LOL!! This week, I also challenged myself to try and tell the story in the title alone. Can you tell that my 'happy-go-lucky' four year old loves mango? *grin*

Hello Friends! Today I am sharing a LO created for Bella Blvd and the design team's Monday Challenge. This week we had to incorporate 6 photos onto our layouts. :)
products used: cs - Kaiercraft; pp - Bella Blvd (max, lucky starz, family forever); alphas - Bella Blvd; other - Bella Blvd: feathers, stickers, Max paper pieces; Heidi Swapp colorshine (navy).
Sure. At first glance I didn't meet the requirements of this challenge, right?! Here's a closer look... *grin*
Scrapping in the smaller size often only allows me to use one or two photos per layout.. that and the fact that I do like to have a little white space on my layout somewhere! LOL! So my simple solution was to create a mini file folder/flap/hidden space to add extra elements. In this case it was my photos. So instead o 6 photos on my layout I actually have 9. phew! This challenge had me stepping outside the box somewhat!
If you would like to see how I created this LO, with a basic step by step guide to hide your own photos on a layout, please head on over to Bella Blvd. Thanks so much for visiting...x
