Feels great to be back blogging again. I have some (alot) of blog candy to give away, so am off to do a spot of weeding and then take a photo of the candy and post it later tonight.

SENZ class

I am ashamed to admit that this is the very first class I have ever been to for scrapbooking!! AND I loved it.. I was a bit apprehensive to start of with but once I started there was no holding back. , and the flowers were amazing. Marise did an awesome job too and had her page held up for everyone to see... Yahoo!!!. Also for a bonus project we got to make these cute little hangers. And of course I have to mention Nic and the girls who were fab trainers and helped out whenever we had a mind blank (not many, but there were a couple!!)

Anyhow, won't be boring you all with anymore Senz stuff. Have to try and unpack a few goodies.

SENZ overload!!!!!

Well here it is.... my stash!!! the only pictures I missed out was the 111 12x12 pages I bought!!! I haven't even unpacked it yet, (only to take photos). Next trip away with the girls we have decided is to the paper craft expo in Sydney 2009!!! Better start saving now!!

Colour Challenge

I have 3 posts to do today to share, first is this colour challenge. I managed to get it done before I went away to Wellington for the weekend.

Sunday 12 October 2008


Well look what happened while I was away playing at SENZ!!!! The lovely Lou gave me an award.

I have lots of unpacking to do (under statement of the year)... and I have blog candy to put together, plus sending out something for Lou since she had to pull out of SENZ

Will share layout and pictures tomorrow. Anyway.. here's the rules

1 The winner can put the logo on their blog
2 Link the person you received your award from
3 Nominate at least 5 other blogs

Canvas hanger

Myself, Marise, Viv and Denise sat down last weekend and did some canvas xmas hangers... alot of fun.

Have alot to do this morning... pack, get kids ready to stay at babysitters, shop (for wine) to take to Wellington.. etc and I need to try and finish Colour throwdown challenge.. which is a real challenge this time round as I dont have two out f the three colours!!

Remember a while back I was going to get some blog candy.. well I am going to pick some up at SENZ... although I am starting to think twice about it now... I seem to have many visitors, (alot from nzsu), but no-one leaves any comments (just to say hi!!) apart from a handful of the regulars. I dont know about you other bloggers, but I find this discouraging and sometimes wonder to stop blogging and posting my creations all together?? Mmm Food for thought!!!

Must dash

Polka Dots & Paisley

Two posts in one day.. but I had to share this card with you, and although the picture isn't that great IRL it looks great. I think I must have been in the right stamp zone the day I did this... have plenty more to share, but have to dash and get tea ready.

Throwdown challenge???

Do you think it matches??? Not really. Bit hard when we dont have Baja Blue, I used Tempting T. instead.

Challenge no.14 might be late also, my excuse??? I will spending up large at SENZ!!!! I will find some goodies to go in blog candy for next week.

Throwdown catch up

Had a good couple days stamping and not much else. So have cards and a 3D item to show you over the next week or two.
This time next week I will be at SENZ in a class using prima paintables... exciting.
Anyway ... heres my take on throwdown 12.

Pretty Princess

Here are two cards I played around with a few weeks ago. With a splash of Dazzling Diamonds, any cards can look great.

Wednesday 1 October 2008


Hello all. For you overseas visitors who have been emailing me wondering where I have been.... I am back! Although I must admit.. I am a little uninspiried at the moment. I have been trying to deal with life as we know it... my 5 yr old asking everyday why Poppa's heart stopped and just trying to cope with day to day life without my dad.
Sooo, here is a card to show you I made a few weeks ago.
