A Chrissy one...

Last night I was lucky enough to get together with some scrappy friends and thisis what I did. The latest sketch from Anna's Craft Cupboard.

It was a great sketch and I took the opportunity to scrap a chrissy LO of Maya. Unfortunately it was also a painful LO to do as I have done the tendons in my right hand!!! It was kiling me so off to the ED I went this morning just to have it looked at. After a few blood tests and an xray I was sent home all bandaged up none the wiser really...just got to have an ultrasound on Wednesday. I have no idea how I did it....hubby calls it RSI...Repetitive Scrap Injury!!All I know is that it hurts to scrap and now I cant for a few days!!Thank goodness I have completed most of the things I needed to get done!

Tomorrow is Maya's 3rd Birthday....I seriously don't know where that time has gone! We having a pink tea party with family tomorrow afternoon. All the food is pink and we (daddy now!!!!) are making pink cupcakes in the morning!!!Ill post photos after its all over. Well off to .....not scrap:(!

Thanks for popping by, Ebxx

Latest creation for SCRAPAPPLE...

As I have previously mentioned I decided to stay on at Scrapapple as a member of their design team. Those girls are just too awesome and god damn funny to leave!

So here is my first project for them this year....

The theme was love and I had some gorgeous 7Gypsies papers to work with as well as the cute Kaiser book and some vintage pink Glimmermist(I really did love themfor sending me that!!!)

The Greatest Love......

I am now even more addicted to glimmermist!Need more colors me thinks!!!

Have also been scrappin classes for Paula's upcoming retreat in Feb. If you are interested these retreats are awesome, great bunch of ladies in at an awesome venue in Lancefield Melbourne. Contact Paula at

Also here is a photo of "mums" new colors which unfortunately isnt the best pic, will try and get a better one tomorrow. If you are interested you can order them here in the comments section.

Thanks for stopping by, Eb xx

Boy its hot.....

Its SO hot here today!!! Too hot to do anything except maybe scrap!!We haven't been doing much this last week, just hanging out at home with the kids.The last few days the kids have been splashing around in their little pool having a ball but today its too hot just yet to even go outside! I hope everyone is safe around the state with no fires.

I have a few LOs share.
The first is one I did for Scrap the Girls January challenge. This month was a sketch challenge done by Peta at scrapbooking from scratch. Check it out here.

Its not the best photo of it Im sorry....too hot to open curtains!!! LOL! Will try and take a new one when it cools down!

Also the new sketch for January is up at Scrapability. Check it out here. Heres my take.

I turned the sketch on its side to create this LO about TRYING toget a photo of all the cousins!!! Funny...more outtakes than goodies but fun to scrap!

And this one was a LO I just did for! havent done that in a while!!!Another photos of Will,Maya and my two gorgeous nieces....

Do you remember the last post I made with the LO I made for Paula's site ...well you can download the instructions and sketch for it if you are interested for free over on paula's blog.

Have also done someother stuff that I cant show you yet...(tease arent I!?). Also some other cool news to share but no pics til tomorrow.....

"MUM'S CROCHET FLOWERS"........there are three new colors.NAVY, GRANNY SMITH GREEN and CHOCOLATE BROWN!!!!! AWESOME!!!!! ALSO you can now order bags of just circles in your choice of three colors. You get a large,medium and small circle (as I have used in my "four Crazy Cousins LO")in a bag for $6.00. I LOVE adding them to circle fabric lollipop flowers and are great with a brad through the littlest ones for boys and girls pages!Will take some more pics tomorrow, hopefully when it is a bit cooler but you can order Mums flowers righthere on my blog if you want some. Just leave a message in the comments or email me at

HAPPY 2010!!!!

Wow! A new year! I cannot believe that christmas and new year has been and gone.We had an awesome but busy christmas. We were all spoilt rotten and had an amazing day!Will post photos later although I got caught up in the moment this year and actually didnt take that many photos!

We just returned froma 4 night stay in Nelson with my dad,stepmum, mybrothers and sister. We had a great time...Will caught his first fish and was so excited and guess what...I wasnt there with a camera neither was Steve...bugger!!! We ate lots,drank too much (lol!)and played lots of cards. It was SO HOT the last day and night though 40 degrees and we had no airconditioning!!! YUK! We are meant to be heading off camping next week for three nights but I think its supposed to be hot again so we may not go as yet. We just bought a big new tent so lets hope we get to use it!

As for New Years eve we were SO tired after getting back from a 40 degree day in Nelson that day that Steve and I watched some movies and then went to bed!I enjoyed it though!

As for the scrappy side I have been scrappin' a LO for the launch of Paula's new online classes that she is offering this year.You can find more info here.

I created this LO for January's classes which as an introductory offer are free!! Stay tuned on Paulas blog for more details. Here is the LO if you are interested.....

You receive the instructions and sketch for this LO called "OUR CRAZY GIRL"....Paula has done one also.

I have also done a few other LOs but can't show you as will have to stay tuned!

Anyway, off to pack my scrappy bags for a day of scrappin' with Michelle tomorrow. Cant wait we havent scrapped in ages! I am working on some LOs for a guest design team position for one of my fav manufacturers! Fingers crossed....Ill keep you posted!!
