Part of the ScrapBoutique Cybercrop is participating in the 'Sunday Roast' (on Monday!!) which is a blind scrap. I've never done one before and I absolutely loved it! Here is the end result.

Easter Weekend Scrapping

There was a black and white theme to this challenge plus the addition of flowers.
This LO worked perfectly for the LSBS Easter Challenge and a ScrapBoutique CC challenge this weekend!

This challenge was all about only using primary colours. The photo was just perfect!
For this challenge, you had to make reference to princess/birds and include some
journalling or a quote about something that is as precious as diamonds to you. 

We were given a visual inspiration for this one - a red/yellow butterfly in a heart shape and 'eyes'.
This challenge involved making a card with the quote, "You have joined the club!"

These are the 5 fantastic challenges this Easter weekend at Little Scrapbook Shop and also one of the challenges from the ScrapBoutique CC.

Thanks for stopping by. Your comments are always welcome!!

Happy Birthday HOLLY!

It will be three years since I bought my beautiful Holly girl home from the pet shop and I just wanted to say Happy Birthday. Here she is with her birthday presents (blankie & penguin) from Aunty Lisa and family. She just loves them! The perfect squeaky toy and the blankie, which is on the bed and right now she is fast asleep on it!!

For those of you who know me well, you know how much my Holly means to me and we have so much fun every year opening presents (yes she opens presents - well trained) and we will have a special little doggie cupcake too! She is the most beautiful pet ever!!

A Quick Gift

I needed a fast, inexpensive birthday present for a friend's daughter who is crazy about pink and has a poodle called Cinnamon. I created this for her using a fabric flower and beautiful angel cabachon from Tattered Inspirations.

Holiday Scrapping

Little Scrapbook Shop - April Cybercrop challenge #3
My beautiful Cover Girl Goddaughter and her little sister sharing a
special moment with me when I visited last year.

Little Scrapbook Shop - April Cybercrop challenge #4
A timepiece was the inspiration and we had to cut the photo ........
so given that Holly's third birthday is fast approaching I
thought it was perfect to scrap about how time has flown since the day I picked her!

I love the fact that I am on holidays and have time to scrap and just enjoy it immensely. Thanks for stopping by!

This is the Wash Day kit.

There's nothing like a good old Easter egg hunt in your jammies on Easter morning!

My Proudest Scrapbooking Achievement

If you have ever submitted a project to a magazine for publication I bet you can share with me the disappointment you feel when they send you a "thanks but no thanks" reply. Well can you imagine my SURPRISE a couple of months ago when I received a "CONGRATULATIONS" email from the editor Kristy, to say that they loved my LO so much they were going to feature it on the FRONT COVER! Yes that's right - Scrapbooking Memories have published my LO on the April issue with a photo of my darling Goddaughter and I can't thank them enough for picking me! Thank you to my dearest friend Lisa  (aka: Vanilla) for sharing such a beautiful photo of her daughter with me and allowing it to be published for the nation to see!

I am so very happy in my heart!!
