On the COVER!!!

The other day I thought I'd wander in to the newsagent to check out which magazines were on the shelves.  Imagine my complete surprise and excitement when I saw this!!!


There was my three smiling cuties in the cover of the latest Scrapbook Creations  magazine (Issue 90)!!!!!!! Ayden, Riley and Madi think it's the coolest thing!!  Madi has already taken it to kindy for show and tell.  Hee hee...so cute!

I was lucky enough to have a few projects in this issue....so here are my pics of the projects you'll see inside starting off with the cover page! :)


Somehow they changed 2010 to 2011 for the cover shot! LOL



I also took part in the sketch challenge this issue.  Here's my sample...




This card was made using the same sketch...


These cards are in there too...




You'll find all the supplies lists in the magazine. ;)  Wow I don't think I've ever had that many projects in the one issue before!!

I'm still over the moon to see those smiling faces all together on the cover.  What a fun early Christmas present!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Catching Starfish...

On our recent holiday down south we spent lots of time going on walks and exploring rock pools along the beach.  The kids loved it!!  They collected loads of shells and rocks for skimming...and saw lots of starfish!  They weren't scared to get in there and touch them...even Madison which was a surprise!

I scrapped some of the photos we took for last week's Scrap a Rainbow challenge over at Scrapz.Biz...(details of the challenge including the colour combo and inspiration pic can be found HERE.)

Now I need to scrap the photos of the boys with their starfish finds too!  I've used the beautiful Pink Paislee Nantucket range for this page along with a few other goodies thrown in.  (There's a full product list of what I've used HERE.)




Today I've posted a new Scrap It Blind challenge. (Details can be found HERE.)  I can't reveal the full page until the end of the month but here's a little peek...


Thanks so much for dropping by!  I'll be back soon with more scrappy shares. ;)

Scrapz.Biz Daily Challenges...

Life has been pretty hectic lately and I've fallen a little behind on my scrappy shares...so today I'm doing a little catchup!

This card was my sample for a recent Noteworthy challenge over at Scrap.Biz.  I LOVE the new October Afternoon Sidewalks collection...it may even be my face OA range yet!
