Scraps time

So I love these photos way too much I'm seeing myself using them many many times.
Scrapbook Capital Sketch. Love the piccies of Charlotte playing with my brothers dog Gemma
Sketch at Scrapbook Divas, some older photos of Zac, but they worked with the Sketch so well.
Older page that I don't think I've put up yet, adore all the yellow touches on this.
A challenge set by Rach over at Scrapbook Divas, had to use less than 50% of the page. How fun is the new Fancy Pants paper.
April 1, 2, 3 Challenge. Had to use something other than stamps to stamp with, I've used the top off my glue, an old butterfly pendant and the wheel off one of the kids toys. Needed to make your own embellishments, the hambly butterflies, and also had to include the words shower and/or April, that's in my journalling. Simply love how this page has turned out.
Just something a little different on myself. Is actually for this fortnights Journalit Challenge, QUIRKS. Head over there if you want to have a look.
Good ole Chevy just doing his chilling.
Nice and simple page on me and Luke.
One of the classes from the Retreat. Love the totally cool flower. And the gorgeous Cosmo Cricket papers.

Now other news, I've had a few commissioned projects with SM of late, got some AWESOME Buzz and Bloom chipboard and stamps to work with, and a really really cool Kaiser Album too. Also had to do a mini page for a feature that's coming up in maybe next's month issue, or the month after, can't remember and don't feel like looking. lol. Was asked to be apart of Lusi's Top Ten aswell so can't wait for that to come out, LOVE LOVE LOVE the page I did and can't wait to share it. Umm what else, oh oh so far I've had two pages picked up by a UK mag, totally totally excited about that. Now just to send them off.
Also I've been asked to be Guest Designer for Quirio Kits for the month of May, can't wait for the kit to land on my doorstep (or should I say mailbox). Will be fun.

Just thought I'd give myself a little toot, hardly ever do. Seeing as all the Aussie mags have gone off my work lately I'm feeling bummed about that. Oh Well.


So let me know what you all think of my latest works, it's been like 3 months since I've really scrapped, now for the past week I've been doing something every night. Planning on a late one tonight since Luke doesn't have to go to work tomorrow, woo hoo LONG WEEKEND.
