I've got a few projects to share. :) I'll try to be brief but there'll be a few pics!
First up are these cards that I created as samples for my Scrapz Biggest Loser challenges.
This one was to use at least 3 buttons on a card...
Then I challenged everyone to make a card with a stamp from their stash that they've never used. (I know we've all got at least one of those! LOL)
I used the Basic Grey "What a Pear" stamp set and came up with this set of cards...
The comp was a lot of fun again this year...and my scraproom is all sorted again! :)
Now for a couple of layouts. This one was my final sample from the Scrapz January Ticklez kit...
My last share is a layout for our new comp that started today at Scrapz.Biz.
I hope you'll pop on over and join in the fun! Go HERE to read all about it and to see all the challenges for this week. :) My first elective is 'Behavioural Sciences' and you can find the details of my challenge HERE. ;)
Here's my sample page...
This is one page I know I'll enjoy looking back on in the years to come. It'll be interesting to see how the kids change (or stay the same) as they grow older. :)
Well...I think that's about all I've got for the moment. Thanks for dropping by!! :)

Then on Thursday Madi started kindy (Preprep) for the very first time.
She was SO happy to finally be going to kindy. She was all smiles as I left her that morning...what a relief! When I picked her up she'd had a wonderful day and apparently "loves her kindy!".
I think we're in for a great year...fingers crossed! ;)

To see the the full list of what's included go HERE.
This month I got to play and create some samples. So FUN!! Here's what I can share so far...I love this October Afternoon Campfire paper. Perfect for those outdoorsy pages!
Love this cute metal sun...and those fish pins!
How cute is that little orange clipboard!
I've got another 2 layouts to share from the kit but they'll be revealed over the next couple of weeks. I've still got heaps of product left over too! I whipped up this card ther other day with some of the scraps...
If you'd like to purchase a kit for yourself you can find them HERE.
Ok...that's it from me for now. Back soon with more!
I know there a lots of you scrappers out there who'd love to donate some of your stash...perfect timing for those of you joining in the Scrapz Biggest Loser comp this week as you're sorting through your stuff! To read Michelle's full blog post go HERE.
Here's a little bit from her post:
"How you can help...
Many of these Scrappers have nothing left, so we are asking for anything and everything from your stash. From tools, papers, embellishments, ribbons, etc. Whatever you can spare, be it big or small.
You can then send it to me. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for my address.
If you know of a Queensland Scrapper that has lost her supplies, you can also email me on the above address and we'll organise something for her!
We'd love to be able to help out as many Scrappers affected by the Floods as we can!"
Thanks so much for organising this Chelle! I'll be sending off my package to you soon!

To help raise much need funds for those in need, Kim has launched a special workshop over at the @Home site. Here's all the info directly from Kim's blog...
"Like most Australians, I have been watching in shock and great sadness as the Queensland flooding disaster has unfolded over the past few weeks. So much devastation and destruction and loss - it's just heartbreaking and difficult to comprehend the enormity of what has been happening just over the border there in Queensland.
I decided that I wanted to help - somehow, in some way.. and so I have created this online workshop "Smile" with ALL proceeds from this class to be donated to the Premier's Flood Relief Appeal. Simply book into the workshop between 14-24 January 2011 and all monies raised will be donated to the Appeal.
The workshop itself is a step by step layered, stitched, painted and arty type single scrapbooking layout project using a single 4x6inch photo that makes you smile. This is an INSTANT class which means all information you need to complete the project is ready to go at your fingertips.
Help us spread the word and we hope you will join us in the classroom at the very special discount price of only $5.00 registration. "
Hope to see you there!

The first one was a page just for fun before I began my DT scrapping commitments for the year. I love this everyday pic of us just going for a walk together one weekend. It's one of our favourite things to do...
I've used some Studio Calico paper and stickers, Basic Grey and American Crafts alphas, Websters and Maya Road trims, Basic Grey fabric flowers and brad...
I used my old typewriter to add some journalling to the Pink Paislee ticket. :)
The other pages I've done are samples for this month's Scrapz Ticklez Kit. I'll share some of those soon. :)
Hope you're enjoying the holidays!

When my beautiful friend Janelle's fabulous book "Pieces of Me" came out last year as soon as I saw the fabric buckets on the cover I knew I had to make them!! I've had the fabric all cut out and ready to go for a couple of months now but it kept getting put on the backburner with all the end of year scrapping commitments, festivities and things. So...new year's day I finally sat down and started stitching. I haven't done applique before but it all came together so easily...and I'm thrilled with how they turned out!
Thanks so much Janelle for making your patterns so easy to follow! :))
How cute are those houses and trees!! My buckets are now looking so lovely on the shelves in my scraproom. They make me happy! :D
Now that I've got the sewing bug I'm trying to decide on what to make next! :)
