The new and improved EMBELLISHED site!!!

You girls have got to go check out the new EMBELLISHED website!!! Ali and Glenn have done an amazing job recreating the whole site. It's so user friendly, looks beautiful, competitions and prizes galore and loads of great inspiring scrappers to chat with and admire their work! You've got to CHECK IT OUT! Just click on the Embellished link and it'll take you right there. How easy is that?? Ooh and before I forget to mention it. . . Embellished Idol will be kicking off real soon so be sure and jump on board the Idol train to win some great prizes!

Ohh brother, I've discovered Stampin' Up!!

Yes girls, it's true. . . I've been struck down with the Stampin' Up virus! I attended a party at Embellished a few weeks ago and booked a parrty from that. My party was last weekend and was a total success! I love the SU products and the consultant Nicola A. was just great! We had so much fun playing with the products, munching on loads of yummy food and spending $$$$. I have already been told I need to book another party (which will be in about 6 weeks I'm thinking!). I've already had a play with the stamp set I ordered at the first party and thought I'd post the layout for you to check out.

"Mummy, the eggs are Cheeping!!!!"

The other day i was boiling eggs for the kids lunches when Hannah excitedly calls me over to the simmering pot exclaiming "mummy the eggs are cheeping!" She was totally convinced there were baby chicks inside the eggs and was already devising a plan for keeping and hatching them. I spent the next 10 minutes or so explaining to her that there were no chicks and the eggs were still okay to eat! By the time the eggs were done all the kids had had their turn at listening to the eggs chirp. Trust me, THEY WERE CHIRPING!!!! It nearly put me off eggs completely! Kids can be so funny!

These are some of my newer layouts. . .

This layout is hot off the Embellished classroom floor!! Litterally!! I just taught this layout today!

I've been playing around with some paint on my backgrounds and I love the effect! I rarely scrap pics of myself but have to admit I am quite happy with how this layout came together.

During a recent day trip to Yeppoon Main Beach I snapped some really cool shots of the kids in the water. I just love how they look like they could walk forever!

Now anyone who knows Adam knows how much of a bundle of energy he is and how crazy the sounds that come out of him are! When I came across this jumbo pack of playing cards at my local IGA I just knew what I'd use the joker card for!

When Ali got the new Marakech (yes Ali I probably spelt it wrong! lol) papers in a few months ago I thought it'd be cool to use for our Christmas holiday pics. I really get a buzz out of piecing a bundle of pics together in a double layout.

I'll be sure and share more soon. Thanks for taking the time to pop on by.

Finally coming through with my promise of layouts!

So I totally stink at getting on and updating! I get it! Here are some layouts I have made over past few months, either for classes at Embellished, Scrapbooking Memories or personal. I'd put some of newer ones on only everything I have created recently has been for either the shoppe or the magazine. Maybe tomorrow I might surprise you all and put something newer up!

Above are classes that I prepared for Embellished. Below is a card and layout that I did as a product challenge for Scrapbooking Memories.

Sorry I'm late!!!!

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY chickies!!!!!!! I would have done this yesterday but the day was so hectic with running between my MIL's and my own Mums homes. I hope you all had a wonderful day!

I'll try and get around to posting some layouts later today. I have to upload some to the Embellished blog so I'll try and kill two birds with the one stone! So watch this space!

I love it when things go right!

Don't ya just love it when you have an idea in your head that is totally exciting and whn you finally get around to making it it's exactly what you envisaged??? I can't show you what it is just yet but rest assured when I can I will!!Lol I was a bit apprehensive at first but once I started cutting and sewing everything just fell into place. Love it! Love it! Love it!

Buying Online. . .

I hardly ever buy online! Call it fear of not getting what I pay for! Not to mention that I normally have everything at my fingertips at Embellished here in Rocky! But alas, I had to venture into the big world of online scrapping stores and was introduced to Scrap Addix! These guys are great! They had what i needed, in stock! And it was postal the day i placed my order. The package arrived safe and undamaged,I recieved a little pressie with my product and contact between myself and the store was prompt and happy! Kudos to Carol and the gang at Scrap Addix!

Still finding my blogging feet!

Okay, so let's just say I've had somewhat of a rocky start to this blogging thing! I started with blogspot and then switched to typepad, but then i bought a really cool digi background from House of 3 only to discover that I couldn't use it in typepad so now I'm back to blogspot!!!! Sheesh you'd think I'd have given up by now!
I'm happy with the background but now I have to get my banner from the other account to finish my blog off. That's a job for another day!
