This month if there is more than 10 in the swap I will do it Round Robin style and you then only need make 20 tags, and I will share them out evenly amongst us!  Any questions  just let me know! Sign up closes Monday 13th September then you have till the 30th to get them to me!

I have nearly got all of  the August tags and will then post them on my blog and get them sent out to you!

Thanks for joining in girls! x



To my bank balance for sure! This is my ‘haul” from  Paperific!  I don’t think I did as much damage as that Jacqui or a couple of  the  other girls! wink, wink! hehe! I think I spent wisely and got  good bargains on a few ‘essentials

The first picture I purchased a Heidi Swapp flourish Mask, Basic Grey pp, some glitter pp, Tim Holtz distress ink, mini OTP tins, and 3x Twiddleybitz OTP projects!

In this pic on the left there is 5x pkts cs, chippy alphas, Tim holtz and cuttlebug Emboss folders, Scrapware OTP projects,some stickers, and 3 sets of mini alphabets!

Think I did very well and now had better get using it all! LOL!

“Photo Swap!”

This swap was lots of fun at Born 2 Create! I swapped photo’s with Amanda Taylor and we each created a layout of our sons!  she made this lovely layout of JJ playing with his cars! She captured him perfectly and the colours are lovely! 

I had a few photos of Connor to choose from, and I couldn’t go past this one of him and this cute bandanna! I made him into a pirate! I printed of a word search and used it for a matte for the photo, and as I didn’t have any pirate embellies I printed of a couple of clip art skulls and a flag and attached them to cardstock! I used the chipboard alpha I got from Heather at H & s for the title and used a bit of paint for it to stand out!

“Build A Page!”

I joined in the “Build a page” over at The Boxx. I started this round!  We each did a step to ‘build a page! To start they had to adhere,  distress and ink a book page to a piece of cardstock, then it was Leanne’s  turn to add her element to the page!  Check it out here is you like!

This is one quick way to get a laout done girls! You can see the finishhed page I made inbetween JJ being sick. going to Paperific and evreuthing else this week!  The girls were really excited and it didn’t take long to make! I’m using the same design for a photo swap with Amanda at Born 2 Create!

“Paperific-Aug 2010”

Hi girls,

We all had the best day at Paperific yesterday in Melbourne!

Jacqui Miles came over from Tasmania for the weekend and I fianlly got to meet and get to know her! she is such a lovely person and a busy mum like me!  We shopped and talked till we dropped, and i din’t want to come home! This pic Mary took on my phone before it died as I forgot to put the memory card back in my camera!

We all enjoyed our ‘girly’ day and I’m sure it will be a day i remember!

“B2C August Tree ATC Swap!”

Trees was the theme for the August ATC Swap at

We all signed up over there, made 9 ATC’s and then Sarah sent us 9 back! They are all lovely and the different ways we make them is fascinating! A lot of clever ladies over there!

I am addicted and have finished September’s ‘Feathers Fur and Fin’ and I am in the process of making my October ‘Circus’ themed ones!

Hop on over and find out all about them, and join the wonderful forum Chris has and all  the fun we have!

“CC Blind Scrap!”

This double lo was created for Challenge Heaven’s Cyber Crop and I used my Page kit swap  from Home and scrapped to make it! They are also layouts# 4 & 5 for Boot camp!

I was partnered with Bri and she sent me a lovely kit ready to scrap these pics of Sam and Willow testing out JJ’s Bean Bag! She had some lovely “Max and Whiskers” papers and embellishments for me and it was so cool! I love this new collection from Basic Grey!

I sent Angie a kit so she could scrap these lovely photos of her Kitty and her grand-daughter! Her page is just gorgeous and she is a very talented scraper!
