My top 10 ...

Hello all :)

Just thought I'd share quickly my attempt at Challenge 2 for the Stamp Shak July CC - layout had to include a list of my Top 10 songs, and a photo of me as well.

I guess this just shows I like my music a little on the heavier side :)

There have been some fantastic entries for the CC this month - it's going to be VERY hard to decide who to vote for!

I've finished off my layout for the final challenge tonight, but it's too late to be taking pics now, so will share that shortly too.

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

My first ever no-photo layout ...

Hello all ... long time no blog, sorry about that. I really hate it when life gets in the way :)

Just thought I'd share a pic of my first ever no-photo layout! This is the layout I prepared as the sample for Challenge One at the Stamp Shak's July CC - the theme was Music (great theme Chelle !!).

The challenge I set was to scrap a no-photo layout about a song that had special significance to you, and there had to be stitching included on the layout somewhere too.

I'm really pleased with how this turned out :)

This is the song that was playing while Nick and I were signing our marriage certificate ...

There are another couple of fab challenges that have been set by Chelle and Lexie - to include a song title on your layout, and to scrap a list of your top 10 songs - I've compiled my list, and am now trying to plan my layout. I didn't think it would be soooo hard to narrow it down to 10.

I've done another couple of cards and layouts too lately, which I will take pics of soon and share with you shortly.

Thanks for looking, I hope you've had a lovely weekend, and I'll talk to you soon.

A quick card ...

Hello all :D

I hope your week is trundling along nicely so far - it's almost the weekend again, YAY!

Just thought I'd share a quick card I whipped up as a sample for the July Card Sketch challenge at Scrapchat ... the sketch was courtesy of Pagemaps.

Each month you'll find a sketch challenge, a card sketch challenge and a digi challenge listed - and they're well worth the look for a bit of inspiration! This month, there is also a nice little prize for the digi LO, very kindly donated from Point, Shoot, Play - a Rhonna Farrer sample CD (yum!), and the winner will also get their LO printed and sent to them. How good is that?

Anyway, here's a pic of the sample card I made ...

Hopefully, I'll get some more scrapping done on Friday night too, as Nick's heading out to drinks with his work mates. I'm making wedding invitations for our friends Greg and Brooke (Nick's the Best Man too :D), and I need to start on some samples to show them. We're going to their engagement party on Saturday night too, which should be a great night!

Anyway, thanks for looking, I hope everyone has a fun weekend, and I'll talk to you soon.
