Hello.. !!!LOL!

So i created this.. in its place !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Closie.. :)

Then i had wanted to do sues one word challenge over at Scrapbooking Top 50.. so heres my take on her word..  TIME.
The criteria was to have a clock, check, the word time, check, and white cs.. check. !!

Dawson loves these rings and uses them as teethers.. so cute..

Lots of scrapping to get through before Darrels cousin arrives from england next weekend.. cant wait.. its gonna be one very busy week !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But i love it and i am really happy with my layouts of late, they are coming together really easily.
Must run, have a photo shoot with a gf who is taking family shots of us tommorrow.....maybe i should get Darrel to dress up as Santa??? LOL !! I think there would be alot of people prepared to pay money for that one..
Hope the weather isnt too Blah !
Enjoy the weekend !!

Beyond the Door November.. and an opinion :-)

Gosh i dont know where it has been hiding but Mr mojo has made yet another appearance.
I am really enjoying my scrapping lately, as i feel i am just doing my own thing with the photo and i think its working for me.

So this is my take on Novembers Beyond The Door  challenge.

I am having fun with their challenges and the rooms are really inspiring. You can take colour or the room itself and draw inspiration from that or you can take the object and the feel of the room too. So many things.

Heres the room :

My take :

i increased this as its not the greatest photo. I found my settings out the other day.. and i re adjusted them but i think little hands has got hold of my camera again.. grrr..

 Close up :

So there you have it, another challenge down.. woo hooo.. and i still have a few on my to do list.. theres so many wicked challenges out there now.. you should check them out.

On a random topic...
Warning Beckys opinion ahead..
 I am hearing alot about the debate of copying.. and i would just like to say.. fair enough it may be your work, but if you dont want it copied in any part shape or form, its simple - dont share it publically.
The fact is people are inspired by others and whether they realise it or not some elements can be incorporated or you can be influenced by techniques or the like and use these on your own layouts. In essence really, sketches are copied arent they?
We all do it if we like the sketch or use elements of it.
For the most part good designers dont as a rule of thumb, they take the bare bones of the sketch and interpret it, they may flip it or adjust it to their style. Then it becomes theirs as such and not a duplication of the sketch.
To the sketchers, well having been one myself i totally get where youre coming from in the fact you dont want YOUR sketches used outside of your site, for outside challenges personal work etc, but the reality is you wouldnt even know if they are being used elsewhere.
I have seen my sketches all over the place, i saw one in america a little while ago on a blog of a woman who used to frequent the Scrapability site. Another woman liked hers so much she did the same sketch and interepreted it differently. I was actually quite chuffed it was getting around lol.
Alot of my Dt team that i had were regulars and still are in SM and SC and internationals as well.
So, i would just like to say IMHO..
I have always been told imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Thanks for reading this far .. if you have any comments you would like to make, please feel free would love to hear peoples thoughts too..

Happy Scrapping

Black with 2 Challenge Dt Share

Black with 2 November challenge is here !


I LOVED this challenge.. the colours really inspired me and i had a ball with it..

Due to some confusion with colours.. we are now providing pics along with our challenges so you can see the colour pallete more clearly..
Heres the inspirational pic Eve gave us :

Heres the layout i have done using that inspiring photo!

Some closies....

My green beaded wire.. love it.
Just loved this challenge and this one has become my fave this year as it just pops off the page..

This is just random photo of Trini playing with her chalks on the ground in the carport. She is naturally curious about everything as most children are at this age and i think this photo shows that side of her.

So what about the little man? Havent done any photos of him for a while, but i have a few challenges coming up whereby i think he will be featured.

Havent got much on today, probably best to stay at home with this weird weather..

Heres some shots of the kids taken this past week :

 little man fell asleep on the floor..
 playing together yesterday ..

 my little thinker...

scooting around.. this morning ...

Well thats it for now... i think i am all posted out.. LOL!
i'll be back in a few more days with hopefully more to share !
Thanks for stopping by..
Happy Scrapping...
Bek xx

Another challenge share.. STG.. on a roll !

Hi !

Havent posted this much in a but when youre on a good thing......hope you dont get sick of me. :)

I am on 4 dt teams and although that most people think "wow", but its really (if you think about it ) only 1 layout a week, or if with Scrap with Vs case, a few more than that when we are doing kits..  he he.. but i get them done and its fun to say the least, especially at the moment because the mojos on fire. Inspirational too, because alot of the challenge blogs are coming up with great challenges that i am having alot of fun playing along with. Besides i can use my stash and then say to Darrel, "oh but hun, i need this.. lol!".. and he wonders where his daughter gets her cheeky nature from..

Speaking of which..

This is the latest challenge at Scrap the Girls and this is the November Challenge:


Well i had some pink..he he lol.. and some photos and some polkdot material.. and of course that was pink!
So i had a play and i quite like how this turned out !

Little miss got her mits on it whilst i was tending to Dawson and hence the large pink dots on the page..he he.. I figured well may as well embrace it. Certainly living up to the name !

I have used pink polkadot fabric, pink ribbon roses, ribbons, heidi swapp journal circle, snuck in a charm creations lollipop..(isnt it the cutest ? LOVE these) October Afternoon letters and word stickers, and a lovely bits and bobs button. The white half acetate doily on the side is packaging from my Prima butterflies.. love that you can reuse packaging from Prima .. i do it alot.

This photo was taken just after Dawson was born on a sunny day in March. He was napping and to let him sleep we went outside and had a play with her bike and her dolls outside. We were expecting visitors and this is how they got greeted ! She got my old sunglasses put them on and then banged into the door because she couldnt see ! Such a character !

Also, STG are currently hosting a DT Call here, they are on the hunt for some new team members.. why not give it a go?

Thanks for looking and stopping by
Happy Scrapping

Kraft It Up November..

Back again.

Just a quick one tonight..
Have been creating today as Trin is in childcare.. (gotta love that lol..- i am such a bad mum..he he.. to say that, but i am sure most of you mums would understand..)
Today Dawson slept for a while longer as he is teething which gave me even more time than usual, so that was great.
I got a few DTs done, but cant share those.

Heres what i can share though..


Kraft It Ups November Challenge is quite an easy one this month..


So i took inspiration from this :

(Yes it is had an accident with the glimmermist.. he he..)

And came up with this....

This is Trinity just before Dawson woke up one day. It was a sunny day late August and we were all outside under the carport and just walking her doll in her pram.  She started looking at the rose that was beginning to blossom in the garden, and thats when this pic was taken hence the journalling.

I was really inspired by the journalling on the page and the lettering style. I found it a GREAT way to use up all your left over alphas and rubons. Lots of old letters and new ones too the same with the embellies. .

Thats it from me for today, need some beauty sleep, thanks for stopping by.

Happy Scrapping

Life ...........and WW1 Challenge

Hi all.

Been trying to do some challenges this month as i hardly got any done last month..
so first off the rank is WW1.
The White with One challenge is as follows:
Just kept it simple with a 8.5 x11 and some flower clusters..
Prima flowers, paper doily, backstitch on the bottom, ribbon, Oct afternoon paper, sunshine glimmermist.
Why not have a go ?

and this is life..

Ahhh .. the joys of parenthood..
Feeding time..

Such a mother hen..LOL!

I know this stage wont last long so i am hoping i will try and get as much as i can.
 Dawson is teething and its got him all out of his routine.. poor little mite, doesnt know if hes arthur or martha.. cant settle during the day so i just let him go until he really cracks it - it seems to be working.

Not much from me today.. have to go sort out a mischeious little munchkin... who is quiet..hmmm.. that means shes up to no good..
Scrapping tonight once  the kids are down and have a load of Scrappy things to mark off my list for November ..who ever thought i'd become a list freak ?
Have a good one..

Another November Share.. Southern Girls Scrappers.

Another November share i can finally post..
I liked this one.
Simple but oh so cute..
This is my first layout for Southern Girls Challenge.
Southern Girls Challenge is a monthly international challenge site and i am on the team with some wicked talent from all over the world. Alot of the girls are beautiful card makers as well. Check the team out (on my sidebar) and please leave them some love.

This challenge Challenge 31 is all about music, so right up my alley !!! It had to feature something in the title.. again right up my alley.. so heres what i came up with :

So i have used a Charms Creations handmade flower which i left white..i have used ink and graphite glimmermist with a doily in my stash. Letters are Jenni Bowlin (which i adore) and a Heidi Swapp round quote. The rest are various bits and peices from my stash and it only took me an hour to whip up.. gotta love that ! Sometimes i can be so tired after looking after the rugrats all day that i dont then have the energy or time to then do a 3 hr project. So something like this is great !
Its an 11x 8.5 i know i know.. i dont usually scrap in this size, but i have before and i kind of like it actually.
Besides i get extra cardstock so win win all around i say !
The night i created this i found Sara Lees mini cheesecakes in the freezer.. they WERE brought for Trinity as they are bite size, BUT mum couldnt stop at ONE or TWO could she ? Ended up polishing the WHOLE lot off.. DARN YOU SARA LEE!
So i needed to walk an extra hour for the next two days with the kids in the!
Talking of which here are some randoms today..

Watching Tv.. NICELY!
Dont you love the arm around her .. his daddy teaching him well..

 On the swing... Dawson just so loves this thing and i just want it out of my house !

Trinity under the carport on her trike near my car... eating a "mite" sandwich..

Well i am off for now.. have to run and get the house clean before rugrats wake up !
Back tommorrow with some more shares..

New month.. new layout..

Hi Everyone..

As i will be having to do a few layout shares and everyone hasnt got their new posts up yet, i will be sharing over the next few days or the week as they come out..

This is the November sketch for Scrap with V, its a rocking sketch and i loved this doing this layout for it.
The Dt absoloutely nailed this sketch and so many different twists.. check out the amazing dts examples here : Scrapbook Kits - Scrap with V .
This is the sketch :

This is my take on the sketch :

PP: Prima Prima Prima.. lol and a bit of websters.. lol.
I liked the twine actually and although i had never used it like that before i found it quite easy to position after thinking it was going to be hard. I think the letters are Authentqiue but i am not sure.. i have brought so much Authentique lately that i am not sure.. Maybe you can tell I have a button from Lovely Bits and Bobs.. the doily i found in my stash..and the butterfly would you believe is just my ms punch punched into some left over green packaging that had a glossy side to it from one of the kids toys? He he.. so many things you can do when you think outside the square thats why i love scrapping so much..

This is Trinity just on 10 mths.. last year.
Journalling reads - "my girl you are no shrinking voilet" which is a quote my friend Lisa describes her with and shes absoloutely right.
She certainly lets you know shes around thats for sure..

On  a personal note..
I have decided that life is too short about worrying about things that arent in my control, so at the moment i am concentrating on the here and now and the positives in life. Something i should have done long ago.

At the moment i am grateful for :

* Having a beautiful family
* Having a wonderful hubby who takes wonderful care of me and my kids and allows me to stay at home to care for them.
* Having happy and healthy kids..
* Having a fantastic supportive family that adores our two kids.
* Having great friends on line and in real life who i love very dearly (and dont unfortunately get to see enough of.)
* Being on 4 wonderful Dt spots that all inspire me to create and allow me to have some selfish "me" time.
* Having a great Dt team on Scrap that Song as they are all wonderful artists who come up with clever and creative songs each month for others to be inspired by!

What are you grateful for? Let me know in my comments or blog about it then provide me a link so i can see..  i would love to hear about your stories too.. !

Back with more shares soon..
 Happy Scrappin

New Challenge at BW2..

Well its another month over at BW2, i am having such fun over at that site, the girls are great and Eve is gorgeous, i am so lucky to be on a lovely DT, thats so easy and stress free.

So heres the challenge :


How easy is that ? It lends itself to all sorts of prettiness and the Dt have excelled themselves this month i think. Its very versatile this month as you can do either a boys or girls lo, and still incorporate both colours.
I personally found this my favourite colour combo.

As you can see i am still having fun with flowers, and this really lended itself to some primas lol.
I can see this becoming a VERY expensive habit and its kind of becoming addictive lol, but i must admit i have heaps to use yet and i had an idea to use just the white primas and mist them to the colour i want.
I think this may just work..

Over at Scrap That Song, we have our next challenge up.. for the month of October.. cant wait to see some gorgeous entries..

The main songs are :
* Star Wars Theme-George Lucas
* You gotta have friends -Bette Midler
* Beautiful People - Chris Brown
* The circle of life -Elton John - theme from lion king
* Sweet Dreams -Eurythmics
* Kite -U2

Find the link here and put your entry up using mr
Cant wait to see what everyone has in store for us this month !

On a personal note, todays my dads birthday, he would have been 76.
My dad was a funny man. He had a wicked sense of humour, which i have inherited from him, and was a kind, honest and loving man who lived for his family. He was a quiet man, not wanting much fanfare or fuss made about him and loved my mum to pieces. I am happy to say he taught me and my sisters what a family man should be. May you rest in peace dad..

At home, things are great, currently planning an engagement party and starting on the wedding.. i think i may be a 12 by the time the wedding comes around.. so back to my normal weight at last!! i'm having trins dress made, to my own design and have my eyes on a few dresses already.. this time i am buying one, as i wont have time for fittings.. now just have to find a place to have

The kids are rolling along, Dawsons growing bigger and bigger, now 8 kg, at 7 1/2 mths, hes such a happy little fella.. Trins saying more words and getting noisier and, so not the delicate little flower!
Trin and i go for a long walk on sundays to give dad and dawsy some male time. Then, on Tuesdays whens in care, Mum and Dawsy have some time together playing..
I am looking at getting Trin into swimming lessons next month. Cant wait for that, shes just a fish...unlike her

 Better run, dawsys waking up looking for a bottle..

October already !

Oh my gosh where has the time gone ?
October here already!

Well i have been creating again cant share anything yet until its all up.. but i have this one and i would say this one is my faves of the year, this one has been entered in the Scrap the Boys  for this month.

I love Charms Creations.. and her lollipops are my fave product of hers as theyre so bright.  I also love a lil somethin and their banners are just so cool, so when this challenge came up i knew exactly in my stash where i would go.

This is what i came up with !

Photos a bit grainy, but  i like this one alot. Charms lollipop is perfect for this challenge as is the lil somethin banner.
I also have a chipchopshop yellow doily and a lovely bits and bobs button.. love it all ..
Why not have a go??

Black with 2 Challenge is up soon and so is Scrap that Song so if you can find time, have a go !
Also Scrapwithv have their new Oct kits out soon too, so keep an eye out..

Thats it from me for now..
Chat soon

Phew made it.. just !

Phew.. what a week it has been ! Very tiring and very trying for sure..But i have made it through and just taking a well earned break.

So i decided to make the entry for WW1s challenge.. wasnt sure about entering this one as its a little similar to everyone elses.. so took my time in deciding, but thought why not give it a go !
I havent had much time to do many challenges this month, but i thought this one sounded fun.
This is a very different take for me, as i have a problem with layering flowers and so i just found some time to play around with some prima flowers and this is the result..
Sweet Dreams..

Most of the flowers are prima... i just love pretty prima flowers and just a few bits and pieces i had in my stash.. had quite a bit in pink i didnt even know.. lol. Probably needed splashes of pink paint thrown on but my pink wasnt right and i thought i would muck it up..sometimes its best to just leave it be.
The journalling reads :

A sweet baby  lullaby i sing to you
so i can i watch you peacefully sleep
how naive i was to think
my love for another could run so deep.

I thought the quote summed it up perfectly.

I think i like this one personally. If you know me well, you know i am very girly and i love pink, so this really couldnt be any more up my, but i have always had a hard time layering flowers so have steered clear of them until now.. but i think i like this style, so i will keep going. Its fiddly and a little time consuming, but once i "get it" i am happy to stick down straight away and leave it. Funny how that happens huh? Mind you this may become expensive lol..

Oh well thats it from me today.. two posts in one day !!
I am off to prepare for tonight and go giggle at my little man whos watching giggle n hoot.. he just loves that show.. !
Have a great Friday and weekend..
Bek xx

Whats on.. :)

Hi all ...
Its been a really hectic week here.. so much to do at the end of the month usually and this month no different just harder cause we have all been sick with different things this month.. grrrr... hate that !
I want to blog more, its just that i actually have been enjoying my time scrapping and have done some that i have been really happy with lately so i am on a roll.. lol.

Onto news..

Over at Scrap That Song , it is the last day (today) to get your Sept entries in too, so make sure you get yours in !!
We release the next playlist tommorrow night.
Oh and look out for our BW2 challenge up tommorrow too.. cant share here yet but its an amazing colour palette, right up my alley anyway.. I had so much fun with that one, thanks Eve for another fanastic colour combo !  I would really advise you to look at this one as it was so much fun to do.. and easy peasy and suits most styles..
I have done my Scrapbookits (scrapwithv) first dt pack.. so that was rather exciting and such a diverse kit too. Lots of lovely colours !The kits will be on sale from tommorrow and by looking at what i have seen so far from the team this month, they are all looking fantastic ! So make sure you pop by the store here Scrapwithv... to purchase a kit or two.. !! They are really reasonably priced. We also have our  blog here Scrap with v blog, which we offer tips and tricks for the kits and advice and tutes too !

Scrapboxx is looking for two new designers too, Scrapboxx has a great site and offers great incentives and their Dt team is a dream, all really lovely ladies.. so why not throw your hat in ? Go to : Scrapboxx... sign up and find the details here :

Anyone applying for Scrapjacked? I love that site and have since its inception all those years ago.. i loved how you were able to just have the "licence" to almost "copy" someones style and i learned new techniques as i went doing it.. so much fun.. theyre looking for new designers.. so why not have ago.. heres the details: It would be fantastic to be part of that team..

I am heading over to wicked princesses tonight for their cybercrop starts at 7.30pm - i loved it last time i played but was too busy for that last one. i have had serious scrapbooking withdrawls the last week or so and want to scrap.. just need some motivation so hopefully the crop will do that !

Oh and the grandfinal is here in Melb, as is the GF in Rugby, so with Daz being a Collingwood supporter (reckons Dawson will be the next!) its a big deal here in this household.
Friday night will be nervewracking but come 2.00 pm tommorrow he will be unbearable.. lol.
 Mind you the kids couldnt care less, but Darrel woke them up last Friday night so i am taking them to see the other mad hatter my mum and leave him to his own devices so we dont have to put up with the kicking and screaming.  Last year we had a gf party, but this year we decided to have a quieter day..

So whatever you have planned tonight..have fun..

Hi all !!!

Hi Everyone..

I have some news that i now can post.. drumroll please..

I am on the BLACK WITH 2 design team and i am SO excited !!
Eve Sheppard has revamped the site and there are some exciting things planned so make sure you go over and check it out here.. Black with 2.

I have had to keep this a little secret (so hard when youre so excited- LOL) and Eve said that she would announce it soon so when she posted it up i thought i would too .. as now i can..
Anyway, i cant reveal anything yet but i tell you - this team is brillant and i am SO honoured to be working with these talented ladies.. still cant believe she chose me.. lol!

So, now i am on 2 dt teams and am kept busy for now. I really have my hands full with them both and the kids so my cup is fulleth so to speak.. he he.

The kids are great - Trinity is coming out with new words all the time and  the latest is "more".
Dawson is great and growing more each day - hes such a little cutie. I am so lucky hes so easy going.

I am going shopping tommorrow and getting Trinity a bathing suit tommorrow and will be taking her myself to the pools.. the blind leading the blind.. lol. I am not the best swimmer as anyone knows me will tell you, but i can swim and i think just getting her into the water will be a challenge in itself. So in order to avoid a scene i thought i would take her to get used to the water and then it will make it easier. I dont want her thrown in the water like i was at school - it scarred me and i have had a fear of the water for a long time now which i have only just overcome.

Am thinking about going back to school - nursing or social work ? Have no idea yet need to do more research and find out a bit more about what both involve.

On the wedding front we have just brought a new ring ( i cant wear my other one) and am looking forward to planning our engagement.

Next month we are planning to visit some places here on the peninsula for our reception, so hopefully we will find what we want..

Sounds like Trinity is destroying the house as i write so i better go..

I will post up one of the designs i did for BW2 ( i did 2)  in the next few days, plus another dt layout for Scrapbook Kits. Formerly Scrap with V.

Until next time
Happy scrapping.

Busy Busy Busy mad house..

Oh it has been a madhouse here lately, Daz has been sick and so have the kids and me..
It has taken us all ages to get over it, and Trinity is now teething really badly.. so grumpy, it never ends huh?
Dawson is a little gem, just happily playing and sleeping, hes just gorgeous.

Anyway i have managed to get my DT work done for Scrapbookkits..(scrapwithv) which is good as i never thought i would get it done.. lol.

So here it is :

Not a great photo, sorry - usually its better but it was taken late at night..
 So what else is going on this month ?

* My sis is overseas at the moment, having a blast for her birthday .. so jealous.. i just hope she comes back safely.

* I am thinking of studying again.. have to find more information out yet hopefully we can afford it.

* Darrels cousin is coming to visit from england.. so excited..we just have to see when shes coming but it should be around the end of the year.. i have never met her but talk to her on Fb alot.. so we are all excited.

* Wanting to get Trinity into swimming lessons, and dancing or music lessons and we are starting potty training next weekend lol. Its getting full on around

* With the somewhat warmer weather approaching we are getting out more and more which is nice and Trins able to play outside.

Heres the latest pics of the kids taken just yesterday - Trins just in love with her brother at the moment but i have to watch them together though - she doesnt realise shes much stronger than him and could suffocate him, but its just so cute that she loves him.. His face just lights up when shes around.. just beuatiful - i'll enjoy it before the inevitable fights start.. when he gets older.

 Just checking the nappy for mum..

A smile for mum.

 A cuddle... awww... BE GENTLE!
 yes mum??

I just love these pics.. i am very lucky they both love the camera and the camera just adores them.. kids of scrapbookers.. who wouldve thought? lol.

Well thats it for us for now..

Cheers Bek xx.
