Forgot to Share . . .

I knew I forgot something! Here is the last LO I did. It is for a beginners class I am teaching on Tuesday. I am pretty happy with it, though I would have adde machine stitching inking and a few more embellishments, but I thought it best to keep it simple. The colours are a little different for me too.

I'm Baaaack!

I started writing this post 8 days ago, so I thought I had better get on with it. I have a couple of things I can share now. Here is the finished product from the class with gorgeous and talented Maxine Hazebroek. Isn't it beautiful?! I can't stop looking at it!

I am so inspred by the use of the cuttlebug in this class that:

A} I am going to buy one! and

B} While I am waiting for finances and delivery, I am going to borrow a friend's for my October Monthly Scrap Pack at Scrapbooking 4 Less. Oooh I can't wait to get my hands on it!

OK, then ther is my stuff from the Really Just Ribbons DT for August (I know, it's a bit late!). But here it is anyway. We got to have a play with Ribbon Stiff. What a great product! I should mention that it also has uses as a paper stiffner (not sure if you can make out the butterflies in the MH mini album, but I used Ribbon Stiff for those too) And for adding body to paper flowers (such as prima)! Very versatile!

Drama Queen Double LO


Family Frame

Well, that's about it. I will have some Scrapbooking 4 Less stuff I can share really soon.

See ya round!

Bad Blogger . . . BAD!

Yes . . . I know . . . I have been very slack! What is the reason for my long absence? Simply put - Creative Constipation! I know it sounds crass and terrible, but I really have been all blocked up LOL.

I think there have been a few factors. Just dealing with all the day-to-day doldrums of family life - it was getting to me. Washing, cleaning, paying bills and bills and bills. It is hard to feel creative when you have a negative scrapbooking budget!
Maybe the weather too - I love the rain, but with little kids inside all day I think I tend to get "Cabin Fever".

Then there is the feeling of having to get creative. When you have a deadline pushing you and you want to create something you will be proud of. It can be a bit tough. Now don't get me wrong. I am definately not complaining! I love the positions that I hold for S4L & RJR.

So anyway, I have come out the other end (pardon the pun ROFLOL) of rather a dark patch - creatively speaking and am looking forward to a whole new day. I wonder if the sunshine outside has anything to do with it?

Or it could be the fact that I am heading to Perth tomorrow with a couple of my scrap-buddies for a class with Maxine Hazebroek? I think so. I am so excited. Here is a sneak peek of what we will be making. Should mention that I have taken this pic from the Scraptivate site.

Isn't it beautiful. I can't wait!

We have a new challenge set up at S4L. It is a Monthly DT Pack Challenge. Basically you need to buy a DT Pack from the online shop. Do a Layout/OTP project and upload a pic to the album. There will be a public vote, and the winner will receive their next month's pack for free! Click Here for all the details.

I really feel I have my Mojo back and I can't wait to get cracking on a new project.
