Some of my latest offerings ...

Hello all! Well, I've been getting quite a bit of scrapping done lately, which is always a good thing:) The Allcraftz For You Design Team details are coming along, and I'm planning classes and preparing layouts, and it's all great fun! I thought I'd upload a few pics of what I've been working on of late so you can take a sneaky peek ..

This first pic is of a canvas I made for my SIL for Christmas.

And here is a Monogram that I made for my niece Mia - it was the OTP component of my Design Team application.

And here are a few LOs I've done for various sketch challenges on the Allcraftz forum.

(One pic has been removed pending possible publication in Scrapbooking Memories :D )

I think I'm having a bit of a black cardstock phase atm ... :D

And one final layout (not done for a sketch challenge but using Pagemaps) to prove that I can do work that doesn't involve black cardstock in any way ...

Thanks for looking, and I'll talk to you soon :D

Happy New Year to All!

Well hello again ... and a very Happy New Year to everyone! I've just got back from our usual camping trip up in the hills - it was 42 degrees in Melbourne yesterday, and it was a stifling drive up, but spending the day by the river in the relative cool of the mountains was most enjoyable indeed. We've come back to a 40 degree day, so we've parked a** in front of the air conditioner for a while, and will probably take the kids down to the pool later this afternoon.

Last night was spent sitting around the campfire with good friends, a few drinks, and many laughs, as we saw in yet another New Year with the obligatory sparklers and marshmallows :) I think this is the 9th one in a row we've been camping with our friends, and I think next year we'll be having a change of venue, back to the original site up on the Bluff overlooking Mt Buller etc. for our '10th anniversary' :)

Have been quite busy of late with Christmas and all, and trying to organise my scrap room (yes - I now have my own DEDICATED scrapping room YAY!) so that I can start off my year as a DT member in a relatively organised fashion ... I think I'm going to have a fairly busy year ahead of me so starting off organised will hopefully help! I am sooooo looking forward to the challenges ahead, and to learning so much more from my fellow DT members, some wonderfully inspirational scrappers, along the way :)

Well I hope the festive season has been kind to everyone ... and I look forward to keeping you up to date with my little part of the world over the next year!

Talk to you soon,
