Scrapbooking: Fishing and Splash

I figured it was about time I finished the journaling on these layouts and uploaded them. I did thse both at the end of last year during my scrap Tuesdays with Sarah, Cindy and Daph.

Pst. As usual, you need to click on the photo to get a clearer view.

But you know, I have made a startling discovery. I am totally into all thing vintage at the moment. I picked up these records just before Christmas at the local Salvo's. I have been looking for some gorgeous covers for scrapbooking and I think therse one's really are perfect.

And not that you can see much of it, but that fantastic MGM one made it's way on to this layout I have been creating this week.

WAHOO! Gone for Publication! :)

Yeah, well, this is the second one I have made this week because halfway through it, Amy decided to 'help'. Needless to say, the layout could not be salvaged and this is a new one!

And I have this book on it's way from The Book Depository. Seriously the BEST book store. Ever.

Although, I really should finish the quilt I am making for my bed before I start on anything else. Only about 50 more blocks to make..... eek......

Scrapbooking: Home

Now for a layout. This is for the sketch challenge over at Ideal Papercraft.

I got to set the sketch this month and I have made it quite simple as I want people to add their own indiviual style and flair.

If you have a go at the sketch, upload it over at the Ideal Gallery and you might just win a prize! :)

Scrapbooking: OTP Clock

Happy New Year bloggers! I am really looking forward to a prosperous 2011! :)

I just thought I would drop in and share the off-the-page project from my Scrapbooking Memories Master's entry that failed to impress the judges.

I am getting quite proficient with the garage tools. I used a jigsaw to cut the houses out of MDF and since I couldn't find a frame that was the right size, with the postage size requirements etc, I made one myself! I bought a length of moulding from Bunnings, measured the 45 degree angles and sawed that sucker up. Then I superglued the moulding to a piece of MDF, puttied it up, sanded and painted it.

I turned out much better than I thought it would!

Before I finish my first post of 2011, I just want to congratulate my mate Sarah for her 2 HM's and also Nic and Lou, who are all Master's in my mind.
