At the Zoo

My first layout for D-lish Scraps. I love all the little bits and pieces in the store. If you like embellishments, you need to go to the store. But first, here's my layout:
Now. Go to the store. You won't regret it. Your wallet might, but you won't.

October Blue Bazaar Kit

My final kit for Blue Bazaar for 2013. I have enjoyed the challenge of creating with these kits.

Here's my final five layouts:

It was a tough ask, I had 2 weeks to complete 5 layouts. In that two weeks, I was away for work for a week, and Steve's parents stayed with us for 4 nights as they were over from New Zealand. But I somehow managed to get them done, including instructions.

I always did work better with a deadline.

I started this layout back here, when I went to Delights all day crop. I was feeling a little inspired to outline everything with a black marker.

I then ended up with all these bits of drawn on paper. It looked a hot mess. So, I started layering bits and pieces and it seemed to tone it down somewhat.

I managed to put some more old crap on this layout, Tim Holtz Grungeboard that I've been hoarding for years and some Heidi Swapp chipboard alphas that I've been hoarding even longer.

I hoard things like that.

Because you just never know when you'll need something like that to save your life. Which is probably never, but you just never know.

And I don't want to tempt fate, or anything.

And I've just realised I wrote the wrong date. Dammit.

Project Life Weeks 11 & 13

That's right, no sign of Week 12. Not really sure what happened there, but it seems that sometimes I just don't take any photos.

Week 11:

Week 13:

There's two pages of 4 pocket 6x6's here. But you know, I didn't photograph them either.

I'll be back with some more...

Project Life Weeks 09 & 10

I'm a bit behind in my Project Life. I tend to put it off for some reason. The fact is, it is so easy to put together a couple of little cards, so I'm not really sure why I agonise over it so much.

Anyway, here's my first of a couple of blog catchup posts (as I'm behind there too!).

My February Photo a Day photos (no need to point out that I missed a few days!):

Week 09:

Week 10:


Well, back to it, I guess. :)

D-lish Scraps :)

A bit ago, I decided to throw my hat into the ring and inquire about a design team position over at D-lish Scraps. Not really thinking I stood much of a chance as the talent in Australia is pretty darn amazing.

I opened my email one day and saw a reply and I honestly expected it to be the customary 'thanks, but no thanks' email.

Wait. Let's re-read this email. No, it cannot be!


I have my first box of goodies here and I'm thinking it's high time I started playing around with them.

So, if I get nothing else done this weekend, I want to scrapbook one layout and get Amy's birthday invitations ready to be handed out on Tuesday.

It's a tough ask.

For me, the terrible procrastinator.

Don't tell my husband that I agree with his diagnosis.
