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..

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..
