My Baby's Back

Yes after three excruciatingly long weeks, I have my camera back! And the best news of all is that we only had to pay for the postage. What a relief. So how did I choose to celebrate the return of my precious angel? Why I took a photo of the kids . . . while still in Camera House!LOL! So here it is in it's unedited state (blown out flash and all). And you know what? I don't care, I'm just so happy to have it back.

Peaked your interest? Check back on Jenny's RJR Blog for mine and the other very talented DT Members Christmas Projects.

In other scrapping news, I have two school holiday kids class prototypes to do for 2 Devils, as well as two OTP projects and a LO waiting in the wings for "grown ups" classes too. I seriously can't wait to get started on those. Too fun!

Well, I can't sit around to chat. I need to get a good night's sleep for a full day of house cleaning tomorrow. JOY! (Note the sarcastic

They say absence makes the heart grow fonder. I can attest to that, and so with my love affair with my camera rekindled, no doubt I will have more pics to share very soon. Stay Tuned!

I have spent today cleaning the house. Feels good to be more organised, things were a bit out of control for a while, but I think we are back on top now. I always feel like I have "earned" my scrap time when the house is clean and tidy.

Good news on the camera front. It seems that it could be a fault with that particular model so *fingers crossed* NIKON are going to fix it free of charge. What a relief. Part of me is slightly disappointed though as I was thinking we might get a new digital SLR. Oh well, swings and roundabouts I guess.

I have been scrapping like a mad woman this weekend. I did my stitching scraps class at 2D's on friday, and the girls (in the class) wanted something else to do for this week. We quickly put a pack together and I will be teaching again this Friday. While I was there though, Jody threw a few things my way, and we decided to do an altered canvas class in November. I just couldn't wait though, so this is what I came up with

(So in the absence of a camera, the following images have been scanned, flipped, stitched etc. Apologies for the quality, but it is definately better than nothing.)

I want to add a large page dresser/flourish to the bottom left hand corner that will reach up to the flower, and also a title. But I will have to plead my case with the girls at 2D'

Now, if anyone from the S4L forum is reading this - Yes I cheated!!! I used this for my "Metal Embellishment" challenge too. Hey! There's nothing wrong with multi-tasking. Is there????

Speaking of which we had our own "Cyber Retreat" this weekend at S4L while the girls were at the real retreat in Redland Bay. We had a great time doing the challenges. Here are my other offerings:

This one feels like it needs more somehow, but I just can't put my finger on it. Any suggestions?

And this one I absolutely love!
Little Gracie asleep on the office chair watching the Wiggles. The papers are Cosmo Cricket (from Scrappin' Bitz), and even more gorgeous than they appear in the pic.

I have also completed a project for Rochelle at Embellishbits since my last post. Here is a pic, and the kits are on sale now.

So now it is on to my DT project for RJR. I was blown ayay by how much stuff we received! Great Kaiser products and some of the most gorgeous Christmas ribbon I have ever had my hands on. Thanks Jenny!

Well, still a bit of washing to do and then dinner.
