Its Back!!!!

My mojo that is.... And I am loving the feeling..... I managed to get to 2 Scrapbook Savvy Crops last week (yes thats a huge thing for me!!) which I believe has certainly helped. I am just going to get straight in and show cause I am just super excited about it all LOL!!

These first 2 were done using scraps leftover from SFS Retreat last year. I wanted to see how many LO's I could get out if the reaminders. I Managed 2, but could have got another 2 I reckon... Unfortunately I had to stop and get onto some "girl" pages so I didnt overdo it :)

All Too Much - completely scraplifted from my gorgeous BF Sar, before I realised it was actually blind scrap # 85 over at SFS...classic, so thanks Sar AND Peta

The day with Dad

Butterfly Sparkles - this was from March Cybercrop over at Scrapbook Savvy. It was "Stash Buster Month" so it was so good to get in and use some old papers and kits. For this one, which was Kerryn's Challenge, we had to use pre-2010 CHA release, then use the leftovers to make a card.

And here are my cards: You will notice they are actually back to front. Ben was away in Melbourne and took the camera so I used "Photobooth" on my computer, but didnt realise the photos were actually mirror imaged LOL!! You get the idea though - and these have been given away already!

Your Doggy - Is actually a scraplift from Peta during the Savvy/Delights Retreat last year (for which there are a few spots left for 2011 - see here for details). I didnt get to finish it, so put the touches on it and I love it. Thanks again Peta mwah xx

A Giggle in the Hunter (thanks San for the title) - using March He's Savvy Kit.....and you can see why they sold out - simply stunning. All I added from the kit were the gorgeous Prima Flowers which were crying out to jump on my page!! This was a scraplift also, but this time from my just as gorgeous BF Linda.

Bath Monsters - Blind Scrap # 87 at SFS. I had to call it that while using this totally cute monster range which was using this awesome SFS Kit. I was a bit worried about using that particular PP for the background but you know what....I love it. I realised only this morning that I need to read instructions better - little booboo, but I still love it anyway.

And in the midst of all these LOs getting finished, I have decided that when I am using papers I am going to then make a card from the leftovers. Even if I store them and put a number or age on later.... I have found myself making so many cards lately. This one is cute - using the same monster range. Was for the little fella down the road, he thought it was cool!!

This fantastic LO is actually Charlotte's. She received a little scrapbooking album and kit for her birthday. This is the first page of the album - she is clever!!

I had to leave the best til last..... This is a Swap which was organised by Wendy over on the Scrapbook Savvy Forum. I posted her the photo of Oliver with a few details and this is what I got back - I love, love, love it. I have to put the finishing touches on wendy's LO before sending it off. Hope I can do as good for her as she has done for me. Thank Wendy mwah xx

See, told you I was on fire at the moment.... I so dont want to pack my things up because I am scared i'll back the mojo with it!!

Until next time xx

Who's on the Cover.....

Of Scrapbook Trends Magazine?? Miss Anthea Peterson of course. Wow, how exciting - I can say I know this girl. I have scrapped with her. Congrats Anthea, thats a fantastic effort (even though I am not surprised!!)

If you want to get your hands on a copy, contact Sarah or head over to the Scrapbook Savvy Store to get yourself one. Its a beautifully set out magazine full of inspirational ideas.

I'm in trouble....

from my bestie Sarah... I havent blogged for 2 months she tells me today!! OOPS!!! Slap my wrist :) To be honest things have just gotten in the way. Things?? Yes Things - otherwise known as LIFE!!! Kids, Work, Home, it all gets in the way....of scrapping that is :)

Last Sunday (being 3rd April) I ran in my first (since school) fun run. It was the Kembla Joggers Fitness 5 Fun Run/Walk - so yes, 5 kms. It was so hard, but I am so glad I crossed that finish line in 33:03 minutes. I was joined by hubby Ben, my little sis Bree, besties Sarah & Linda, Anthony & Gordon. I am happy with my time, but now its time to train for the next one and see if I cant reduce it :)

I can show a few pages - some of which you may have already seen on the WOW Blog and Savvy Gallery - but I will show again:

Using the March He's Savvy Kit - Not So Rosy:

This one I cant really show yet as its for another "challenge" but I wanted to show the gorgeous chipboard used on the LO from WOW - Princess Beauty:

Its a Hard Life - again using awesome WOW chipboard:

Hey Dad, Is it a Keeper? - WOW Chipboard, and an old Scrapbook Savvy Monthly Kit.

Speaking of Scrapbook Savvy Kits.... April Kits have gone live and selling fast. If you want to get your hands on one, you better head over to the shop to grab yours now.

Well, enough of me today. Hoping to get some more scrapping done soon to show!!! (well thats the plan anyway!!)
