Back to Basics

Apparently FK issue 44 is out. The theme for the ET project in this issue was old and new. It was a coincidence that just at this time Steve found some old pictures that showed him when he was the same age as Max and pretty much in the same situation as well, on Santa's lap. This layout is also one of my favourites because I went back to basics.
My dad turned 60 on the 19th of February this year and I decided on a whim to fly to Germany for a week to be there for the big day. The only problem was that I had about 5 assignments due straight after I got back. So I packed a few basic supplies and got really organized in terms of what paper I was going to use etc. And this layout is one of the projects I did just using a pen, some rub-ons and a stamp for the diamonds. Pretty simple but quite effective I think :) By the way buying supplies in Germany wasn't an option since there is not much around in terms of scrapping products. Looking forward to having a good look at the mag when I get my hands on it...

    Had a fabulous crop night yesterday but I'm a little tired today...staying up until midnight is obviously a thing of the past because I seem to suffer the next day. I managed to sneek away this afternoon though for half an hour for a little nap :)
    Here is another LO created with the fab July kit from
  • OPAAT.

  • Hope you all have a great weekend! Mine is very quiet and uneventful and that is how I like them. Nowhere to go and nothing to do...it's bliss.

    Class Kits

    I have something else to share that I really enjoyed doing...I've designed a class kit for
  • Aussie Scrap Source.
  • You can view the July class kits on their website now and pre-order.
    I hope to be doing some more of these. It was real fun.
    These kits basically get sold to retailers so they don't have to design their own classes. It helps everyone. The retailers save time and the people taking the classes get fresh ideas every month. And I get to play and have fun :) It's a win for everyone.
    So here is the July kit I designed for Aussie Scarp Source. Go check it out and tell your retailer about it. Have a good weekend everyone!

    Sooooooooo excited!

    I can finally let the cat out of the bag...I'm one of 6 girls announced for the new DT at
  • One Page at a Time.
  • OPAAT is a kit club in the US with some awesome monthly kits.
    I have been in love with kits ever since they came on the market. So I'm really really happy to be part of one now. The girls at OPAAT are super friendly, go check it out. I can't wait to get my first kit and start playing around. Will post some pics here when it arrives :)
    Better go and cook some dinner now, I think the family may want some food on the table tonight...still can't believe it...

    BB newsletter

    I'm happy to say that I was asked to be the Celebrated Scrapper for June for
  • Blue Bazaar.
  • Thank you for the opportunity Luise.
    I had fun creating some new layouts for the newsletter and playing around with some new products...
    And I will get to create a layout for the portal in the last week of June.
    I'm having a lot of fun lately just scrapping the photos that inspire me. The load with For Keeps has considerably eased with the book and the calendar done and the teaching at ISC over. I did enjoy all of it though, I'm a sucker for deadlines :)
    Hope you all have a good weekend!

    I'm trying to back up old photos at the moment. I'm talking two years old. Everytime I'm looking through the pics I find something that inspires me and I get an idea in my head and then instead of doing a back up I end up scrapping a page like this one...I adore this picture of Max sitting on our dog Cooper.

    Otherwise my week has been very slow so far with Romy being home from Kindy with a cold. Didn't get much time to scrap, hopefully the weekend will be better.
    Keep an eye out for tonights newsletter from
