Sketch 19 Beary Box

OMG you can believe it is Monday again already everyone. The family went out to the coast on the weekend and had a wonderful time away. On Saturday night we took the kids to the local speedway and they had a ball. Then on Sunday after brekkie we went to the local markets, did a big of shopping and headed down to the Rock Pool (which has inflatables, two water slides, jumping pillow, boats etc etc) for a cooling afternoon in the water! A quick visit with some friends from outta town on the way home and back here in Moura at 7pm Sunday night. All very tired but happy. I brought myself an exercise bike so after dinner I am off to put it all together and had a ride. Anyways I digress... here is this weeks sketch for Beary Box. I didn't have much time to do this one so am doubly happy with the end result! I think I really like it!! Hope you do too! Tomorrow I am changing hats and working on my card submission for this week! Hope everyone is have a great start to the week... Bye for now! xo S

Another Card Thursday is HERE!

It is hard to believe that another week has past and it is time for a new Beary Box card sketch again. I love the really different way we all interpreted the sketch this week. All so different but all so unique and gorgeous in their own way. It is late so I will keep it short. I went over to Biloela this morning and picked up my second hand paper racks. They are an early birthday pressie to me from the family. I managed to get six sets of racks for well under $200 so I was very happy indeed. Thanks for stopping by my blog and hope to see you back here again real soon. xo S

Sketch #18 Beary Box

Morning Gals

Here is my latest submisson for Beary Box. My take on it was a little different from everyone else's so I am now feeling a bit unsure about it all. Don't get me wrong I am happy with the layout design but I think I might have thought outside the box alittle in excess! lols.... I am off to Biloela tomorrow or Friday to pick up some long awaited shelves for my studio. I am so excited. A little sad but as the only reason I am getting the shelves is that one of the lss's is closing down!! I am picking up six lots of 10 racks. Finally somewhere to put out my cardstock!
Well have a great day everyone! Mwah xo

Scrappies Cyber Crop

Here are some of the LO's that I have gotten done so far for Scrappies first ever Cyber Crop. I was asked to submit a couple of sketches for the night and then we also did a scraplift of one of Caz's great LO's (but you have to wait for that one as the deadline isn't until tonight so I am still creating there...), The Letter B Challenge and lastly The Green Eyed Monster Challenge. I won't be doing the Green Eyed Monster Challenge but will have done four outta five done so I am very happy with that. My paper bags didn't arrive in time for me to do the paper bag album but I am hoping they will arrive today so that I can get my pg album done before the deadline of tomorrow night at midnight!! Caz & I played the bingo game with gusto with me being lucky enough to come out the winner in the end... boy did we have fun! Ok enough from me... have a look and let me know what you think of these lo's.... Maybe next time some of you can join us for our next crop and have some fun too!! Have a great week everyone!! xo S

RAK Card

Hi Girls

How has the week been treating you all? Mine has been long and tumuluous for me so not much happening on the creative front. This is my card for Beary Box. Joey gave us a really simplistic design and I think all the cards use just stunning. Simplicity sometimes translates to simply stunning! I have a shout out to give with regards to my card.... to my bestest bud Caz who sent me a RAK of gorgeous House Mouse stamped images to brighten my day (which I might add she never fails to do!!).... Big thanks and hugs too Caz. You are the greatest bestie a friend could ever ask for.... Love ya. So here it is girls. Hope it inspires you some and thanks for stopping by for a look. Night night. xo S

Nothing complicated about it at all! So if you are after a card with some male appeal and that doesn't take long to make up this is the card for you! TFL

New Blog Design

Hi Everyone

Well what a day... I lost my entire blog!!! Some of it was salvagable thank goodness but worst of all was that I lost all the links to my favourite haunts. So I have to start all over again. Some of course I know off by heart but there were many that are now lost until I rediscover them again! If anyone has any recommendations or if you were on my list and aren't now please give me a big shout!! Since I had to start over again I thought now is the time to give the blog a total face lift. What do you all think? I just love it but OMG it has flowers so how could I not. I looked at what felt like a million images but kept being drawn back to this one. Ok gotta go the housework seems to have learnt how to call out me name! LOLS. I hope you have all had a great weekend. Stay tuned for some more lo's this week.

Family Man......

Continuing on my good fortune as far as being on a scrapbooking roll... I went straight on to complete my first Scrappies DT LO submission for March. The theme for this month was a Q & A with your significant other.... So the spotlight fell on my DH Ken. This photo of him was taken at Christmas time when he was showing off his new watch that he got for Xmas. I decided to keep this one simple too and used hidden journalling which is located under the photo. Thanks for looking everyone........

To Have & To Hold..........

This is the second of my submissions for Scrappies. Again the theme is the story of us so I chose to use some more proofs from our wedding album to create this double lo. I have kept it very plain and simple in part because I didn't have any decent wedding themed embellies so bling, alphas and some flowers was all it took to complete this lo. Thanks for looking....

Scrappies DT Submission

Hi Everyone I am so lucky to have had such a productive week as far as scrapbooking and card making goes. I won't go into reasons we shall just say that due to certain reasons our DT programme at Scrappies has been delayed... So this is the first of my submissions for February 2009. The theme for this month was "The Story of Us". In my journalling I reflected on how Ken and I met... through a blind date arranged by friends.... the start of the evening was less than impressive but we both must have done something right because here we are some two decades later still as deeply in love as we were way back in 1988.... The lo has scanned in a touch crooked so you will have to forgive me. I have almost completed my second submission which is a fairly simplistic double lo using the small proof photo's we were given to choose our wedding photo's from. Thanks for looking everyone and be sure to check back tomorrow as I am hopeful of getting this other lo complete real soon. But for now I must go and catch some zzzzz's. Night night everyone!

Quick, Simple But Effective Bday Card

Morning Everyone and how are you all today. Weather here again is absolutely lovely and almost hard to believe it is summer time at all... Thank goodness though as Mon-Wed were so miserably hot and yukky I didn't leave the house unless I absolutely had too! Just wanted to share with you all a very quick and easy peasy card I made a couple of weeks ago. In fact I gave it to DH for his birthday. As most of you will know I was so snowed under the week leading up this his bday party that I almost forgot the card! So I raced out to the studio and whipped this one up in less than 10 mins! I really like the simplicity of it... thanks for looking and I SOOOO hope you all have a glorious weekend whatever you are up to! mwah XX

Scrap'N'Craft with T

If you like these you will love the beautiful work on Tan's blog too so be sure to hop over and check it all out... Thanks heaps Tan for asking me to be a GDT for you..... I so loved creating my lo's and card and I also loved shopping in your online store... You have some of the most gorgeous stock!! Mwah!!

Thursday is Card Day

Hi Everyone..

Well Thursday is Beary Box card day as you all know... I was so taken aback with the girls cards this week OMG they were all absolutely stunning... I have had heaps on the past couple of weeks so my card was a bit basic this week.... I still like how it turned out but would have loved more time to work on it, that's all. Have a great evening ladies and thanks for visiting my blog!

Latest BB LO

Hi Everyone

Sorry I am running a bit behind on updating my blog this week. With this sketch I wasn't actually going to submit this week as it has been totally crazy in our household the past month. On the weekend we ended up driving down to Brisbane to go house hunting. Yes in the coming months we will be relocating again. But when I told the lovely Joey she was so good and encouraged me to submit anyway... she even gave me a little extension. I was surprised how easy the lo came to me... before I knew it not only did I have a plan but the photo and pp's too! So enjoy... but don't forget to grab a cuppa and check out the other great designs at Beary Box. This iweek also sees the first design to be submitted by my wonderful friend the talented Miss Caz. Loved you lo Caz you totally rocked it ...... Have a great week everyone! TFL
