is all I seem to have done this weekend. I've thought about scrapping, a lot really, but just haven't started as yet!! Probably has something to do with the amount of time I have spent at this computer ~ really liking the tidy up I've done on this little piece of my cyberspace!! But seriously, I have planned my FNF layouts for Scrapbook Shelf, even got all the bits and pieces out and organised and I have been thinking about the projects I am planning to do with the Scrapware goodies. Check these out:

Anyway off to think some more and maybe even cut and paste a few pieces of paper.

This week...............................

just keeps getting better!!

I have been invited to join the Design Team of a new online store (which I applied for via application) ~ this is still under wraps!!

Yesterday I arrived home to an Express parcel from Scrapware full of an amazing array of chipboard products and a Guest Designer spot for them. The parcel is truly amazing ~ will post a photo tomorrow!!

Today I have had another layout accepted for publication ~ YAY

And tonight I won 2nd place in the "Slice of Life" competition over at Scrapbook Shelf. A gorgeous AMM shoulder bag and a $50 voucher ~ woohoo!!

Off to get some sleep now

Today was...........................

a great day. I am continuing to feel more and more better each day and have noticed that I am laughing at work again and that feels good!! But that's not what made today great ~ I came home from work to a very pleasant email this afternoon, but I can't say anything yet. Needless to say I am very happy and excited and can't wait. Will reveal all as soon as I am given the OK!!

No photos today.

At last........................

I think my health may have taken a turn for the better ~ for the first time in months I have actually felt OK this weekend. Fingers crossed. Even felt well enough to search the net for a good accommodation deal for our upcoming trip to the Gold Coast ~ and booked us a place, so it's all systems go now and only 5 weeks away ~ yay!!

It has been a very quiet weekend with Riley spending the weekend with his Dad due to his relatives from that side visiting from Perth, but today was a really delightful day. Dear friend Liana celebrated her 4oth birthday several weeks ago and although we all went out for a gorgeous meal in the vineyards, the girls wanted to do something special and today was the day.Liana, Nyrie and myself spent the better part of the day at Peppers Country Guest House, Pokolbin, where we had the choice of a 1hr massage or facial followed by a 2 course lunch with wine in their award winning restaurant, Chez Pok. In a word ~ SENSATIONAL. I had the massage while the other girls opted for the facial ~ both fabulous!! The food was divine and the wine just perfect. All in all an awefully special way to spend a day with two gorgeous girls.

Last night was Cybercrop night at LetsScrap and the girls set some fabbo challenges once again. I was on sketch duty:
and my example layout
I'm still working on my attempts at the other challenges so will load them later in the week. I have also managed to finish my photo swap layout for Kate over at Scrapboutique. Was a really interesting concept scrapping someone else's photo:
I have also managed to finish my DT layouts for LetsScrap, but can't share them until the 1st of next month, so stay tuned.

That's all for now, off to watch a bit of the Olympics Closing Ceremony before some shut eye ready for another working week.

My Poor..........................

neglected blog. Still struggling to overcome the dreaded lurgy and am really tired of being ill ~ not seriously sick but just feeling very ordinary and not like doing very much. But despite that I have been a little productive on the scrapping front.
First up my August DT layouts for Lets Scrap using delightful papers from Kaisercraft and chipboard & alphas from Delish:

I have continued to participate in and am seriously enjoying the Slice of Life Challenge over at ScrapbookShelf. These are my contributions (see Week 1 in post below):

Week 2 ~ non photo layout

Week 3 ~ Define your creativity

Week 4 ~ use an imperfect photo

Week5 ~ the world through a child's eyes

This Saturday night is Cybercrop night at Lets Scrap and I'm on sketch duty. So drop by if you have a chance and want to take part in some cool challenges.

Well that's all for now, tomorrow's lessons are waiting to be planned.
