DT for Challenge Heaven!!!!

   I am a little bit excited and I am doing the “Happy dance!” I think the boys think I have lost it!  Michelle at    has asked me to me to become a Design Team Member for August, September and October and for two Cyber Crops!

I am so rapt to be given this opportunity to work with Michelle Benson, Becci Sunburg, Simone Morrison and the gorgeous Jess Mackenzie!!!  I am wrapped that they think my work is ‘worthy’!!!

Wish it was August! lol!!!    A ‘little goal ” for me has come true!!!!    I have been a little absent with all the stuff going on around here lately.  Michelle checked up on me to see how things were going which was lovely!   Boy what an excuse to scrap my heart out now!!!!!

I think I will be ‘happy dancing” for a while!!!

“I Just Luv Him!”

I really enjoyed creating this layout for a Mid Week Challenge

I went back and re-visited Challenge #25 that I never got around to having ago at Sept last yr!

Heather’s challenge was to use a title like what I have used and to journal a list!

I couldn’t go past these pics of Cody I took not long ago of him just hanging out in the lounge with me!

I loved get some feelings down about our wonderful relationship we have at the moment and enjoying time with him while I still have him at home!!!

“Last Day/first Day!”

In between finishing a Rag Cushion Cover and a Rag Scarf that I whipped up today I thought I would have a go at the Negative Space Challenge over at

I printed these photos of Jayden’s last day of Yr 7 and First day of Yr8 and hadn’t done anything with them! Just what I needed!  I used the school colours as the base for my layout and used some machine stitching , paint and some masking! I wanted a more grungy feel to this one!

Stuart, Jayden and Kaitlyn are the best of friends!  Even with J home schooled now they are still in touch with one another!!

“OMG! Another One!”

Must be something in the water! lol! Two layouts from me this evening!

I took the boys back to their dads and now I have my table back!

Thought I would pop over to Challenge Heaven as I haven’t been over there for a little while!

They are having a CC this weekend and Becci’s Blind Scrap inspired me!

I found this pic and thought it would b great so off I went in a mad scrap craze again! I just loved all the yellow in this pic and it cried out for some blue! I really enjoyed this little project too!


I came back from mum’s this afternoon and I so wanted to cut out fabric today for a project, but as the boys have taken over the kitchen table it was not going to happen! lol!  I will get it back tonite!!!!!

I was lurking at and thought I would check out Heather’s great challenges!  I stumbled upon a Step By Step and it inspired me to create this layout of dad and Buddy!  Just what I needed and it felt gret scrapping too!

A bit of paint and misting, a photo and some left over Max & Whiskers and one layout complete!

“Rag Bag!”

This is my first Rag bag that I completed today! I am making a quilt with the same method!  This came together quite quickly once all the material and batting was cut out! I then machine washed it and dried it on low heat, which gives it the rag look!  I added the handles, closure with the great button from my stash and put half of a base from a recycle shop bag in the bottom to make it sturdier!

I am very happy with my first one “off the press” and hope to make more!

My Quilt that I am in the process of sewing together is on my other blog as

I am making these to sell and if anyone would like to order one in the color you would like just email me at and we can work it out!

“My baby is 14 Today!”

14 years ago I became a mum for the second time!  This young man was ready to arrive and nothing was going to stop him lol!  Jayden was born in Ballarat at 36 weeks as I was having an ongoing pregnancy problem with Pre-Eclamsya.

I was already in Ballarat and I was booked in to have a Cesarian but he had different ideas and I went into early labor!  He was in a bit of a hurry and 10 hours later and at 8 minutes past midnight he arrived!!!

Another beautiful baby boy to cherish and he is now growing into a wonderful young man! I am sooo proud of him we wish him the happiest birthday today and love always! xxxxxxooooooooxxxxxxxooooooo
