A little Questionaire............

THis LO is sketch 36 at Inspirascrap.

My fellow DT'er at Scrap the Boys, Hannah Blair has sent me 5 questions to answer about myself, so here goes:

1. Your scrapbooking is inspirational to so many. Who inspires YOU in your scrapbooking?
ANSWER: There are many people who inspire me, but to try and name them all is very difficult. I really admire the work of Leah Killian from the US, and here in Aust. I love the work of Ali Russell. There are definately lots more but too many to mention.

2. What is your dream vacation destination?
ANSWER: Probably on a boat sailing around the Greek Islands, although I would love to visit Germany to visit the birth place of my ancestors.

3. Sweet or savoury, which do you prefer?
ANSWER: I'm definately a sweet girl!! Just can't help myself when it comes to desserts, chocolates, name it, I love it!

4. If you were stranded on a deserted island and could only take FIVE scrapbooking items, what would they be?
ANSWER: WHite Cardstock, double sided tape, trimmer, pritt glue and a pack of bright coloured paper.

5. Which famous person (dead or alive) would you love to meet and why?
ANSWER: I'm a big Patrick Swayze fan, so I would love to meet him. There is is scene in the movie "Roadhouse" that just makes me get a little tingle LOL!!!

Thanks for sending me the questions Hannah.

So excited to announce that I am one of the new members of the creative team at White with 1 . I have loved doing the challenges there and now to be a team member is just icing on the cake. If you are wanting something different in a challenge then pop over and join in the fun. The layouts in my previous post were the ones I did for my application.

Now on other matters..........getting really excited about flying to Newcastle in April for the Shop and Crop retreat. Haven't been on a retreat for such a long time and can't wait to meet all the girls down there.
I am holding my first class/scrapping day from home tomorrow and am busily trying to get organised. I so desperately need to get cleaned up!!! LOL

Finally some more layouts....

It's been a long week so far. I have been sick with a 24 hr bug which has been hanging around for at least 48 hrs!!!! Feeling better this morning so looks like I will be back at work today. I did these layouts early in the week and decided to share with you. Blooming Beauty (she is just too cute don't you think!!)is my White with 1 challenge for this month which was to use all white and brads/eyelets. I haven't used eyelets in so long and it was fun to dig them out again. That's what I love about some of these challenges, they make you think outside the square and do things that you may not have done for a while. It is easy to get into a "scrapping rut" and I for one like to go and check out my stash every now and then to remind myself of just what is hidden in the depths of my room........God that is really scarey!!!! Laugh out loud is one I loved doing cause I think the photo of Matthew screams out "bright and bold" so I used the red. Siblings is a different approach to the normal heritage style and I really like how it turned out. I have a ball of string on my table at the moment and I keep trailing it across my layouts to see if I can use it.....this time it worked well I think!!!

Heart Cards

Another wonderful scrapper, Shazz Pratten has organised an appeal for scrappers to make "Thank you" cards for the victims of the Victorian Bush Fires. These cards would be used by the victims to pass on to anyone they want to thank. Shazz is asking that you make 10 cards and send them onto her before April 3. If you wish to help out with this fantastic venture, please email Shazz at and she will let you know where to send your cards.
Alternatively you can visit the online scrapping community at the Scrap Lounge
A really worthwhile cause and fantastic idea. It is amazing how we can pull together and do something for those in need.
Well done Shazz!!

Let's help the families of the Victorian Bushfires.

Fellow scrapper Sarah Gladman has launched a wonderful idea for scrappers all over, to help out the families of the Victorian Bushfires who have lost everything. She is asking all scrappers to make a 12 x 12 layout to donate to families who can then start recreating their memories from copies of photo's from family members. Go check out her blog here and if you can help please leave a comment! Wonderful idea Sarah and I know I will definately be helping out.

Some new layouts and a couple of cards for something different. My layout "Dirt" is my February assignment at Scrap the Boys THe layout had to be about things boys do outside and we had to include stamping and journalling. THis is Matthew on his first birthday oblivious to all the fuss and just enjoying the dirt and rocks.
The second layout "Cake" is for Creative Scrappers and is based on sketch 37. THis is Erin on her CHristening day trying to dig in and get a piece of her cake.
I also made these two I told my DS he could give to his girlfriend for Valentines Day (He just rolled his eyes at me, such a romantic that boy, just like his father!!! LOL) and the other is a Birthday card I made just for fun.
Hope you all have a great week! Don't forget to leave a message and say HI!
