New DT and more.......

Today the sun is shining and I wish I could be outside soaking up the sun but I feel miserable....the cold has hit me big time!!!
I suppose having a sick little one home for 2 days off was bound to happen.

But I do have some scrappy news to share. new DT position.

I can't wait to receive my first DT pack to get creating. Thanks Julie for picking me. Hope I can do justice to your chipboard.

Now to share a creation that I completed at a class at Camp Mojo by the lovely Louise Nelson.

Oh what a teacher she is and such a lovely down to earth person too.

I had a lot of fun and learned heaps!!

with lots of close ups of the detail:

And lastly:

***New Owner Needed***

It is with a heavy heart that to announce that I am in need of someone to take over the Stuck?! Sketches challenge blog due to some issues ongoing in my personal life.

Sponsors are lined up for the remainder of 2013 and most of the current Creative Team have expressed that they would like to stay on for another term but understand it is at the discretion of the new owner.

Please email me at to express your interest.


So thanks for stopping by....remember you still have a few days to get your entries in for ALL four layouts for this months birthday at STUCK.

August is here....

Well one of our busiest months of the year has arrived!!!

We have 5 birthdays including my 40th!!

I think I seen 3 blank days on my whiteboard for this month that has nothing on them yet- which will fill up knowing my girls!!!LOL

Last weekend we visited the snow and had a fantastic time...well kayley and bridget didn't think so with snow in their boots!

Here are a few pics taken on the day...

We are so lucky to live only an hr away from the snowfields. Great when you have 2 kids that only want to play in it for an hr and then go home!

Well I better share some creations with you since its the beginning of the month.

White with 1

Stuck?! Sketches is celebrating it's 6th birthday this month

Let's kick off the party with our August 1st sketch.

There are no guest designers this month, but with every member of the Creative Team providing an inspiration layout, there's plenty of ideas to get your mojo flowing.

For the birthday month, each of the sketches also have an extra little criteria. For layouts submitted from the August 1st sketch, you are to use the sketch and create a birthday themed layout.

and a close up of Memory Maze Chipboard and D-lishscraps embellishments:

Entries are to be linked up here no later than the extended deadline of 11.59pm Sunday 8th September 2013 to be in the running for one of this month's sponsor vouchers.

When linking your entries, please make sure it is linked to the specific post your layout is in, not your blog as a whole as it can be hard later in the month to find your layout, especially if you blog often. You can also link from any gallery including Facebook and Flickr.

Entries are to be created solely for this challenge and not to be used in any other competition or challenge.

Scrap for Help

I decided to spray my tea bags with the 3 girls favourite colours. I love to use colour on my layouts. I placed the teabag string behind all 3 photos and just dangled the ends over the top and used the Memory Maze Chipboard to hide the teabag motif.

and a couple of close ups:

Well i'm off to pack for Camp Mojo. I can't wait to meet everyone and have a fun weekend of scrapping, eating, drinking and laughing!!!

Thanks for stopping by....
