Cyber Crops everywhere

I tried to do 2 cyber crops over the weekend and OMG...dont ever try to that one again...I didnt know whether I was coming or going half the time.

Anyways.....Here are the ones I did for Hybrid Designs CC. This Challenge you had to use Pink, Orange, and White. I chose to scap a picture of DS Charlie with his favorite all time Girl..my BFF
This One had the criteria of a Song title, 2types of alphas , 3 colours (I chose rust,teal and black), 4 ribbons, 5 embellishment (including 1xtag). It was a challenge, but I love the end result. Picture are of DS Charlie at the Cold Rock Cafe in Adelaide

This challenge had me creatinga layout with Love inspired journalling, using NO red, and include hearts and flowers. This picture is of DS Angus with his Granma

Then I tried to head over to Scrapbook'n'Bits where my Friend Melissa has just gotten a DT position. They had a CC, and I thought I would join in
This is my take on the sketch that was provided. I really love this colour combination and I love the picture of the kids with Rob on his Birthday

So yeah...my advise to anyone is....unless you have all weekend alone, with no kids and nothing to do....dont attempt to do 2 cyber crops at once
hope you all have a lovely week!!!

some latest stuff ...*WARNING* heavy on the photos!!!

Alrighty then...where do I start....OMG I have been busy..I am totally obsessed about scrapping and challenges and photos and papers etc etc etc. I seem to be going through the layouts at a hell of a rate, and I am loving every single minute of it.

These 2 layouts are for Inspired Blueprints...they have some awesome sketch and I am more than happy to be getting through some of my Christmas photos and using the DEVINE Sassafrass Lass Xmas range....I LOOOOOVE IT!!!!!!!

This Layout is my example page for the current STUCK sketch....it is a great multi photo sketch

This layout is for The Scrapbook Establishment site. It is my take on their monthly sketch

This here layout is for Creative Scrappers. It is my take on their current sketch...gorgeous colours in this...so fresh and summery.....I love it and am very happy with the result

This layout is the monthly sketch at Hybrid Designs.

And this is for their Survivor Competition. It is a layout about something you have survived with the emphasis on journalling (more than 50 words).....very pleased with how this turned out too

So as you can see...I have been super busy, with lots of very inspiring sketches from all different sites. Please feel free to pop over to one of them and join in the fun, and leave me a comment if you like what you see

Tagged by Renee, Charleegirl, and Sharon

I have been photo tagged by so many people and have been ultra slack in passing it on, so here goes nothing....
apologies to Renee, Charleegirl, and Sharon

So here is what you do
Go to your Picture Folder on your computer or wherever you store your digital photos.
1. Pick the 6th Folder, then select the the 6th picture in that folder.
2. Post that picture on your blog and the story that goes along with the picture.
3. Tag 6 other people that you know or don’t know to do the same thing and leave a comment on their blog or an e-mail letting them know you chose them.

This photo is of my son Charlie, it was taken last April when he was just 3years old, at Old Mac's Farm on his first ever pony ride. He was scared witless, but managed to stay composed. The pony's name was Honey

Iwont be passing on the tag, as I think it has pretty much done it's round now with the people I know

Bon's Sketch

here is my take on the sketch over at Bon's. It is a great hand drawn sketch and I jsut twisted it 90' to fit my portrait style photo rather than the landscape one in the sketch.

Beginning of the Month and some EXCITING news

It is my last month as creating artist for "White with 1" so Ithought I would make it a tribute to my gorgeous sister and WW1blogger Susan....The Criteria this month at White with 1 are White with white and brads/eyelets.....it is a great combo for a fresh and pure layout

At Scrap The Boys this month..the Criteria are "the Great Outdoors" and stamping...here is my example layout with my gorgeous little man Angus who is in love with all things out doors. I ahve used stamps by Sassfrass Lass(dandelion), and Stampin up ('a' , snail, and background spots),

This is another layout I did for the Inspired Blueprints sketch..loved using the giant bracket instead of a half circle. Im in love with this colour combination (red, grey and cream)

Thanks for all the gorgeous comments I have received recently on my updates....you girls mean so much to me. I love that you find my work inspiring, and you always seem to comment on the way I construct 'BOY' layouts....but really I dont have much choice..LOL..I only have boys...hehehe

so now for the exciting news...

I start in March officially...but you can check out the gallery for some layouts I have done with my subscription. COOL hey?????
