This layout I made using only Basic Grey Papers.

The base paper is Basic Grey Eva Dauphin and the papers in the layers are from Basic Grey Eva Grandiose, Basic Grey Sugared Darling and Precious. All of them distressed using scissors distressing technique and inked with Tim Holtz’s Worn Lipstick Distress Ink.

They Photo is of mine when I was 5 years old taken black and white and painted.

The flowers are from Petaloo. Ribbons, tassel, laces, Doily and die cuts from my stash. The alphas I bought from Kmart. The rub ons from K & Co.

Yaaaa Hooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!

I won the “Layout of the Month” at http://www.debscreations.net.au Yay!!!!!

How cool is that? I am all excited.

I get to be the Guest Designer for Jan 09.

Can’t wait to design layouts for Debscreations.

The layout which won is “Mr…………. Damn Age is getting to me!”




Sweetie Pie………….

Well, after a lot of distressing( which I love to do), I decided to do a bright and cheerful page. This is for a challenge at www.debscreations.net.au by Mandy

The challenge says:

1. 2 photos any size

2. Paint3. Metal

4. string/cotton- of any description

PLUSWhatever else you want to add…

I love Rosa Moka papers, bright colors with some splash of paint on them. Very cheerful papers.This time I just collected all bright items together and then pick the matching pieces and decided to make a layout with them. No sketch and no planning. But I made sure I had a metal piece and a string in them. Of course the paint as well.

Description of the layout:

1. I started with a white card stock. Placed my DD’s two photos at an angle using the foam dots, right in the centre of the cardstock.

2. I then place a black lace on the bottom of the photos

3. I used Basic Grey Urban Pairie chipboard sticker piece on the left side of the photo. On the rightside I used a Bella journalling tag again using foam dots. The journalling tag is wrapped around using a string and a metal heart clip hanging from the string.

4. I then trimmed the white cardstock to a smaller size. and rounded the corners. I used brown, green, yellow and pink water color on the bottom corners as borders and on the the right top corner as well.

5. The title is from Bella chipboard stickers and the journalling says”Its your beauty that captures my attention but its your personality that captures my heart.” I love this quote because it is so true with my DD.

6. The other elements such the butterflies and the flowers are from apack I bought from Kmart. They have nice bright color and glitter on them. The birdie is from Basic Grey Urban Pairie Chipboard stickers.The large pink flower is from Heidi Swapp and the velvet gathered green flower is from Maya Road.

7. I finally placed the trimmed white card stock on Rosa Moka Appel De La nature Grande Envolee pattern paper.I liked it bright, simple and cheerful all that is so true of my DD as well.

Tupperware Party

Yesterday, I had been to a tupperware party.

Saw the new catalogue and Goodness me!! they have gone back to that dirty yellow color again. Yuk!! I hate that color.

I liked them in nice and bright colors.
Easy to make my kids identify them and get it to me when I want it and simiarly for my husband too. Other than the primary colors my DS and DH are blind to rest of them. lol!!!!
Anyway, I did order a few boxes to store my dhals and rice in them. and a mystery gift as well! So now most of you know my order was above a certain price hehehhe!!
I love the spice set they have and cranberry color is awesome.I have them and I have ordered another set as gift when I go home to meet my parents and SIL.They will love it.

I did do a bit of scrapping yesterday. Had this handmade page swapp at http://www.debscreations.net.au/ and I completed my page for the swapp.
I cannot put it up now because my layout have to reach my swapp person and she has to see it first. Otherwise the element of surprise is lost you see!!!
Hopefully by next week I will put it up. And also my designing a kit for http://www.uproar2scrapmore.com.au/ will also be up.
All exciting news now. I have started my projects for http://www.scrapncraftwitht.com.au/ Shhhh!! I am not telling anymore for now.



It is using a new release paper!!!!!!! I have made a sketch and choosen the paper and embellies. Waiting for the parcel to arrive………..

Ok I did make a layout out of a sketch. I will show you.

This is the sketch from stucksketches

Here is my take on it. I have used bubblewrap and paint.

Boring day yesterday at work!!!!!!

Yesterday, I had to finish all paper work at work. Not only mine but the doctor’s as well!!! Poor Traci, my admin staff had to put all the notes into the data system in the computer and nothing has been done by the doctor. I offered to help her out with it. It is boring to sit and do the paper work. I prefer clinical work all times.
Went to pick up kids from school and found out my DS had fallen down hard on the road at school and hurt his knees and sprained his wrist. Oh poor thing, this is the first time he has fallen hard and hurt himself. He was in real pain for the first time. lol!! Moreover, having fallen in front of girls and friends, ego hurts like mad. So lot of cuddly time at home and my DD gets jealous. Lol!!!!
Some Rice and Dhal for dinner and off to bed for them.
No good programs on TV last night. So went blog hopping. There are some real cool blogs. I will keep adding them to my list.
I finally found Tim Holtz’s applicator and have bought them. Waiting for the delivery. Watching the post daily………… Hope it comes today.
I am preparing for this weekend’s cybercrop at www.uproar2scrapmore.com.au Anybody wanting to scrap their holidays please register yourself. Starts 28th’s November till 30th november. Plenty of games, fun and challenges. Theme is “The great Outdoors”.
Next two weeks I have my social calender filled with parties and dinner from school and friends. Think most of yours will also be.
Mine starts today with a tupperware party. Hope I do not spend too much today……….. Hope not….
Ok thats it for today.
Have a nice day


Yay!! I got it. I made my own header for my blog and loaded it as well.

Well, I am so happy. So happy……… Feel like jumping up and down.
I am currently sitting in front of my screen grinning.

Wow!! I can’t believe myself. I had the determination to fix it.
I just did not give up at all and I did fix it without any help (Well had the internet though!).

I need to celebrate it. Off to eat lunch.

Have a nice day.




Hi Ya everybody!!
