She and my bro and nephew and her dad and her bro drove all the way through the night from Forbes and suprised us all, arhhhh everyone kept a secret from me lol, but it was well worth it to have my bestie sitting in teh same room as me and even better too, she brought all her scrappin stuff with her, so we have alot of scrap time to catch up on together. YAY YAY. ALYS LOVE YOU SO MUCH, your the best present, who needs a gift when i got you!

hello hello
wow..second post in 2 days..im on a roll, lol. Well as promised, here is a layout i did recently of my little boy from last christmas when he was 3 months old, his very first christmas. For this layout i was soo super proud i made all the embellishments from hand...the scallops borders down the 2 sides, i wrapped wire around them threaded on some buttons and some beads to try and create a tinil like effect (decoration) and the red circle with the petals is actually a milk bottle cap lol, i just cut up the sides and yet again threaded some wire with beads through and around the petals and then just cut out some cardstock as the circle backing and then made a chrissy tree wrapped with ribbon. Love it although i did have trouble adhering it, so out came the trusty glue gun!! Guess thats scrappin for ya, anything you can find around the place lol. Hope you like :)
peace out

Finally got my winning layouts from scrapbookcupboard..yay!!!

I'm so happy to have received my LOs back!! i've waited over 2 months to get them back, finally i can share with you what i have created. I hope you like, please leave a comment, i love feedback. xoxoxo take care chooks

My very first challenge for the competion, we had to do a LO on ourselves, i knew it was coming and it had to be first! i have never done a LO on myself before, but i am so happy i now have :)

My favourite page of all, i just simply love the colours, i rushed this page thou. I had 2 days to complete it because with the LO we had to use product packaging, so i had to trash my scraproom upside down in search of some kind of packaging, i used my journaling tag as packaging.

For this challenge we had to buy this special ribbon that came into stock (sorry cant remember what it was called) but the ribbon felt like paper and you could shred it and curl it, was really unique paper ribbon. Anyway we had to use it in our layout.

I absolutely adore this LO, we had to use stampin on our page and i chose a cute easter bunny stamp and created a layered border at the bottom

In this challenge we had to use core paper, showing the core of the paper either by tearing it or sanding it or whatever your imagination came up with, while i was doing this layout i had no mojo, so took me a while to come up with something lol.

For this challenge both these 2 LO's below Had to have the same photo but we had to do two entirely different LO's.
