Since we are talking about challenges I just did this one for the first ever challenge at Get Picky. It was an awesome sketch and heres my take on it.

These are photos of Maya enjoying a play at a local playground. Loved the bright yellow slide!!!
Also here are some other layouts I did over the weekend.I loved the Midterm range by Bella Blvd for this picture of Will and his friends at his birthday party!

And the one above is of Maya and Marli. I had forgotten I had this paper range until I was packing to go away on the retreat!!!
Anyway thats all for now, Thanks for your kind comments!!! eb xx

I havent posted in a while.I have been having trouble with my blog. Every time I would try and upload a post or moderate comments it would freeze on me but it seems to have fixed itself at the moment (fingers crossed!)
Well whats been happening you ask........LOTS!!!!
We have a new addition to the family ......Meet Marli!!! Our 7 week old golden retriever puppy!! The kids had no idea we were getting her until we arrived at the breeders home last Sunday!!! We were only meant to just pick her out last week and collect her a few weeks later but she was a big pup who was ready for a home straight away so we were able to bring her home last Sunday which was great BUT we hadnt taken a box or towels or anything so I was covered in dog vomit until we could find a box and some towels at a local shopping centre! Here she is.....

She is very cute but it is like having a little baby in the house although as this week has progressed she is settling in much better!!!
On the scrappy front I have been busy creating with the new Storyboard kit which I know you will all love but as you know I cant share just yet!!!!
I have just returned from an awesome retreat run by the girls at the Imagination factory in ballarat where I taught twolayouts!!! I had a great time.....not very productive but here are a couple I did. Will share a few more tomorrow.

I also have finished my entry for the challenge at Scrap the girls this month.......
the challenge was to be inspired by a quote and to add flowers and buttons to your layout. I did the definition of  Maya's name which is hidden on the tag behind the photo.

And also on some other news my time as a Scrapapple DTer has come to end also. My time was nearlly up and I decided to step down to make some room for some new ventures. A HUGE thanks to the Scrappaple girls for the opportunity I had such a great time!!!!
Thanks, Eb xxx

Time for goodbyes.....

Well sadly I have stepped down from my design team position at Scrapability. With the new direction that the site was taking I thought it was the right time for me to resign. A HUGE thanks to Bek for the wonderful opportuniy she gave me and for believing in my abilities such a long time ago. I will still love joining in the sketches each month but felt the time was right.
But onto some scrappy stuff, cos thats why you are here right??
I have been a little quiet on the scrappy front lately but now need to get my butt back into gear to meet some deadlines!!
Here is my entry for Kraft it up this month....I really enjoyed this sketch!
I took these pics when will lost his first tooth not solong ago. He has since lost the other bottom one.
And these two were just becasuse I felt like it layouts!! LOL!

I have also finished my entry for Scrap the Girls this month so will share that soon too. A big thanks to Tanyah Payne for her generous prize on scrap the girls last month.........Yah!!!
Thanks for popping by. Off to start getting organised for the Imagination factory retreat. cant wait!!!

The Dennison Kit.....

  Hi everyone......

This is the latest kit to go on sale over at Storyboard kits.
I am also happy to tell you that I am teaching two layouts using Bella Blvd Sunny Happy Skies at the Imagination Factory in October. Here they are.
If you are going to the retreat and you want to do my class just contact the girls at the shop!
And finally the next challenge is up at Scrap the boys.
Here is my sample. One of Will's all time favourite things is his Lego so it was great to do a layout with him and one of his creations. Its not the best picture but I love these papers!!

I had a scrap night with my friends last night and achieved 3 LOs so willtake somepics in the next few days to share. Will is having his Birthday party tomorrow. I cant believe this time next weekhe will be 7! We are taking him and 4 friends toplay mini golf and a play at the playground so hopefully this beautiful weather will hang around tomorrow!!!
