It's My Birthday Today...wooohoooo

A VERY ordinary day, just like any other really. Oh well. I've already got my birthday present. I booked earlier to Bon's Scrap Retreat Week-end in August. I can't wait. This is my very FIRST retreat and I am going to attend every class, Ihope to learn heaps from the Pro's.

I bought a Scrap Tote for myself to bring all my goodies home in & I also bought one for my daughter, Charmane for an early Birthday Present for her.

I even made name tags, so we know who Tote is who's.


I have covered an old A4 diary & have been cut & pasting the current challenges & ideas in it to keep track of the challenges I enter (& of those I missed)

This is an idea I got from a recent Scrap Mag I love using Paper Napkins & modge podge. You laminate it, & decorate the pages for a mini album. The paper is so pretty. I'm still not sure what I am going to do yet. I have pink binding rings I know I'll tie ribbons & lace on them, and I have some glittery pink alphas and tiny pink flowers, so there's a start.

I made 8 'pages'. I like making albums because you can add more pages if you want to.

Oh by the way I was Blog Hopping last night & happen to visit Lisa at Our Little Slice Of Paradise and joined as a Follower of her her Blog. As a celebration of Lisa having 60 Followers, I received a Blog RAK of goodies.
(Hehehe an early Birthday pressie for me.)

Hop, Hop, Hopping Along

I have been Blog Hopping again. OMG boy are there some truly talented scrappers out there and their blogs are to die for!!!

They are all different and really inspirational. I have added myself as a Follower to as many as I could.

One Blog, Chillibits has great Tutorials & Ourlittlesliceofparadise has this Blog Candy on offer for anyone who adds it to their Blog before June 30th 23:59pm
I love the colours in this RAK, especially the Thickers & the pretty polka dot ribbon, I have the perfect project for them: Step-Daughters 21st Mini Album. Anyway go check it out.

Scrap To The MAX!!

Well I'm trying to anyway.!!!

WooHoo I have Comments at last. Don't ask me what I did to change my settings, I just kept clicking anything I thought might help. LOL

I've managed 1 LO today for Scrapbooking From Scratch June Sketch Challenge.

I couldn't help myself I wanted put a piece of Paper Napkins on my page.


I had fun doing this LO. It helps to have a sketch to start you off.

The next project I have to start thinking about is an 'album' for my Step-Daughters' 21st.........hmmm I have just over a week to do it!!!! AAAAAAhhhhhhhhhhh and I haven't got all the photos printed yet either!!!!!!!


Why do I put myself under so much pressure? I'll give it a go anyway.

Meanwhile, Tues 30th June is Bon's CC. Can't miss that one! Should be good.

Oh yes! I'm off to do some more Blog Hopping. YAY!

Hope to see you online sometime.

Cheers Bronnyk

Where has the time gone?

I have really tried hard to do some Blog Hopping, but LIFE gets in the way! Or should I say work gets in the way hahaha!

I have finally finished my storage boxes!

Wanna see them?






I just LOVE the gorgeous paper Napkins I found!!!

Now I need to find all my Bits and Pieces, sort them and store them!!

It's nice to finally clear the table off. I really shouldn't have done so many at a time, it seem to take forever!!! But I love the results.

Let me know if I have inspired you to give it a try.

Cheers Bronnyk

So hope to see you soon.

What a Day!

Early morning start @ 3am!!!! Worked till 10.30am, then came home to sort & upload photos to order from Snapfish. Well it took FOREVER!!!! Then I couldn't find the email with the code for the 1c Deal!

Anyway cut a long story short all done, I ended up only ordering 45 photos, it cost $3-88 including the postage!!!!! LOL

I went to the gym of course. I did about 30mins interval jogging & 40mins of weights & floor exercises.

I have a photo of the Storage Boxes prepared for Modge Podge & patterned paper napkins.

I have ALL sorts of boxes, this is just a small part of the stack I have ready on the floor.

I am going to store my Scrapbooking Mags, rubber alphas, chipboard alphas, lace & textured yarns, etc. in them. I am also covering some boxes for the grandchildren to store their 'artwork' & 'special treasures' in.

I will post photos when I have done them.

I didn't get to even start Charm's Online Class last night. By the time it started I was ready for bed. I didn't get a chance to even have a look today, so mmmmmmm maybe tomorrow????? Cross your fingers please.

A 5am start tomorrow. Woo Hoo sleep in. ROFL

Bye for now

Charm's Online Class @ Bon's Scrap Tonight

I'm really excited about this class because Charm (Charmane is my No. 1 daughter) & she is a VERY talented girl!!!!
Check out the link below to see what you need for this class, and if you join in the class tonight you can also win kaisercraft - rub-ons - type alphabet .

I alreasy registered so I can't win them. Darn!!!!!

I have been busy as per usual, work early in the morning finished @ 9am, then order some more goodies from Bon's (naughty, aren't I????), then I painted ANOTHER coat of white on the storage boxes I am making all preeetttyyyy. While they were drying I went to gym (love it!!), then DH & I went to visit a friend in hospital with a huge growth in his stomach. Very sad, we still aren't sure if it's cancer, but it is too big to operate on, he will have to have Chemo. etc. Our thoughts are with him & his wife & families.

Tonight is Charm's Class, but I also have to quickly sort through photos I want to print & order @ Snapfish by tomorrow. The only trouble is I have to start work @ 3am.

Ok, off to get some photos organised & then to Charm's Online Class.

Thanks for visiting.

A Very Productive Day

Wow I had a good day today.
I painted 8 cardboard storage boxes (empty A4 printing paper boxes with lids) with white paint (for the base colour), let them dry, then covered them with some gorgeous table napkins with modge podge.
Really pleased how they turned out.
I swept the floors, made the bed, a load of washing & generally tidied up as well.
Gee I must be feeling a whole lot better???

I going to do some blog-hopping @ Bon's & Our Bright Stars and Us and see where else I end up.

Thanks for visiting.

Much Better Now Than I Was This Morning

Amazing how R & R helps your body recover!
Yep I'm feeling much better, and tomorrow I hope I'll be almost 100%.....
I need to clean a very neglected house!!!

But first I'll show you a couple of LOs I did a few days ago.


This was for Petas June Sketch Challenge. This was a great challenge because we were able to use 3-4 photos for this LO.



This one was for the 123 June Challenge @ Bon's Scraps. I used some of the elements & PP from the May Boy Kit I bought @ Bon's & there is HEAPS of stuff in to use yet.

I hope to get my mojo back soon so I can get stuck into some more scrapping.

Thanks for looking. Happy Scrapping!!!

I am not feeling the best, I've caught a flu bug or something. Achy all over, headaches, & generally lousy, so I haven't benn doing anything but sleep, lay on the lounge & sleep!!
I hope I feel better soon, I really hate being sick, I have so much I want to do. I miss going to the gym & I can't even think clearly to even do any scrapping.

It's soooo damn cold!

Yep I've felt cold all day!! I have spent almost all day inside where it's warm, apart from going to the gym this afternoon for an hour.

I finished my 123 Challenge LO. It's ok, but when I had a look in 123 June Challenge Gallery here: http://ourbrightstarsandus.typepad.com/photos/june_123_challenge_galler/index.html
I have to take a photo of it when there is better light & upload it into the gallery tomorrow. I don't think mine is very good. The Lo's in there are amazing!

Well I'm off to do some more scrapping, I need to sort through some photos for Scrap the Boys Challenge and I have 3 other photos I'd like to scrap but not sure what I want to do with them. I guess something will pop up.

Happy Scrapping!!

Long Week-end is over.

I know my blog is very ordinary atm, I am slowly adding gadgets to it, please be patient with me.
So much to do, so little time lol!!

Well another week-end is over! How quickly they go by. I managed to complete the Blind Challenge from Bon's Scraps today, I love how it turned out. I promise to add a pic soon to show you.

I have also been collecting the challenges to do printing & pasting them in an old journal, so I can look back & get some inspiration when I'm lacking mojo. (I'll put a pic of the journal on here to)

No riding this week-end too cold!!! Stayed inside the whole week-end. I made about 4 dozen pies on Sunday with my Sunbeam 4 pie maker/ I made chicken curry, plain beef, beef & mushroom, apple & spaghetti bolognaise pies. (I know weird, but yummy)

Ok, I'm going to try to 'pimp' this blog a little.... hopefully!!

Tuesday, June 2, 2009
