Tiger Island

Hi Everyone

Just finished off last night my double layout from Tiger Island at Dreamworld. I had lots of fun doing it and was really happy with the final outcome. I actually used 8 (yes EIGHT) photo's!! I haven't done this is sooo long.... As you can see the first page is very similiar to the challenge last week from Beary Box. I have so many tiger photo's to scrap yet... I really love my cats esp big cats and tigers.... Thanks for visiting my blog !!

Beary Box Challenge Sketch 4

Hi Everyone,

This is the layout I submitted for the above this week. It shows Douglas, Jordan and Nicayla posing with the impressive statues at the entrance of the tiger display at Australia Zoo. I wanted to do something a little different this time around. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by my blog!

Log Ride

This lo has been inspired by two things the workshop I did yesterday at the lss in Bilo and from Esther's drive to use up some old stock/papers etc.... So the flowers on this come from some pp that I have had for so long I have no idea who the manufacturer is even. I have combined it with some new pp and am very happy with the end result. This is Douglas and Jordan in their log ready for the log ride at Dreamworld! It is such a lovely photo.... I am so happy the lo turned out so well! I had added glossy accents and a ton of kindy glitz to the flowers but sadly it hasn't come up too well in the photograph! Thanks for looking everyone and I hope you are all having a great week - getting lots of creative works of art completed!

Sketch 3 Challenge

Well even though I do not like this lo and am not happy with it at all I will continue to share with everyone.... I totally lost my mojo and was pressed for time but this happens to us all. Some people have told me it is lovely (I am sure they are just being polite) and others have said it is not my usual standard of work so I will let you all decide for yourselves. I am looking forward to a new challenge this week as my mojo is back with a vengenance. I was lucky enough to attend a workshop yesterday at a lss in Bilo. Unfortunately the lo we did is going to be published at some stage in the future so I have been asked not to post it anywhere on the net so to be polite and show respect I won't but I just gotta say why the hell did they do it as a workshop in the first place then.... oh no point in standing too long on my soapbox! Thanks for taking the time to stop by the blog girls. Can't wait to see the cards from Beary Box's DT team due out tomorrow! Tata for now...

Caught the Bug Layouts

Hi Everyone

Well I have had the best day! A local scrapbooking store based in Kingaroy (that is a 5 hour drive from here!!) came up to Moura to hold two workshops here today! I went and spent the day with three of the loveliest ladies you could hope to meet and I tell you talk about talented!! Here are the three layouts we did during the two workshops they held. A HUGE thank you Zennia, Tanya and Margaret for all the effort you put into making today happen and for the fun workshops! I must also mention the HUGE effort you put into bringing SO MUCH stock with you.. You had an excellent range of products. We all only hope it can be done again in the future! I will be there for sure....

It's The Weekend!

Hi Everyone

Well thank goodness it is Friday. It has been one helleva week here for all the Tait's but thankfully it is over now and we were able to finish it off down by the river having a farewell bbq for a friend who is moving on with a lovely bunch of locals! The kids all enjoyed a swim until it was almost too dark to be in the water and then we sat on the riverbank til nearly 10pm enjoying good company of friends, over indulging in food cooked for us by a professional chief and drinkies a plenty! Tomorrow we head over to Biloela for the morning and maybe down to the river again for another swim in the afternoon. It is certainly hot enough! Then on Sunday a treat for me hopefully! There is a scrapbooking store based in Kingaroy coming to town for the day and doing a couple of workshops. So I am looking forward to going along as much for the social aspect of it!! Jordan has his final full rehearsal for the school play so it will be a busy weekend. Hope you all have a great weekend. Take care and stay safe.

2009 Calendar

DT "OTP" Challenge for Scrappies

This is our first challenge for the month of November with the great Aussie site Scrappies Scrapbooking Supplies based in Tasmania! Create a 2009 calendar.... Well here is the calendar that I created. I am really happy with how it came together! Colourwise and lo wise! I was lucky enough to get some really great shots whilst we were on our trip south in Sept! TFL...

Hi Girls

This is the second page that I have created to go along with my first sketch challenge for Beary Box. I have just gotten home from the swimming pool. I promised my DD Nicayla that I would go down and watch her to her swimming lessons. She is doing really well and the school is having a swim carnival in a couple of weeks - yes camera moment for sure!! The weather here been horrid - yesterday it was 37.5 degrees C and really humid with noooo wind at all. Today has started out in a similiar fashion to yesterday cool morning with nice cool breeze so I am worried we are headed for another HOT day! To top it all off our air con is not working correctly and although we can get some cool air out of it we have to run all the ceiling fans concurrently and we are only just maintaining cool air it doesn't get cold. So we are waiting on the repairman - hopefully before the end of the week the agent told us so please all keep your fingers crossed for us!! Other than that I am hoping to get some scrapping done today.. new sketch from Joey due to arrive any moment so I can't wait to see this weeks challenge!! TTFN and thanks for visiting my blog!

Hey I am so excited I have had my first sketch for Joey at Beary Box for several days but have been so busy with trips out of town for Doctors and Dentist appointments and finishing off my OTP Calendar for Scrappies that I haven 't even started yet LOLS! I am going to run up something in the morning but I have my photo's out (yeah it is going to be a double lo featuring the first page as the BB sketch) and some papers and embellies too!! I am really looking forward myself to seeing what I am going to create.
