James surfing

Tried to add a video code at the bottom but for some reason it's not working. Anyway if you're interested in seeing James surfing here's a link. Hopefully it'll work. It takes a bit to download, if you have dial-up like me, about 5 - 10 mins, but well worth the wait. Should be quicker on Jetstream, etc. Bearing in mind too this was videoed over a year ago. Great to watch.

8.5 x 11

Why am I doing 8.5 x 11 and have I changed to this some people have asked? Yes I looove scrapping 8.5 x 11. Mainly, I love the look, I love to scrap just one photo on a page, though I do do more photos but I find it easier to put one photo on an 8.5 x 11 page. I still do 12 x 12 though, mainly for classes or samples, mags etc, but definitely I just love the look and yes I have changed to 8.5 x 11. I have a Carven, I think it is, 8.5 x 11, but I'm finding the pages fitting a bit tightly so having to cut just a bit short of 8.5 inches. I'd like to get a landscape 8.5 x 11 album.

The sun is finally out

Sorry, sorry I didn't get back and update. I had to finish one of these layouts first though. I had fun with these. I'd had the layout of James planned for awhile with the ticket and everything. Of course they never turn out how you plan but I am pleased with the result and the one of Emma, well that was heaps of fun, just went with the flow and whatever I came up with that was it. Got a little inspo from the chicky I linked you to in the last post - Fiffi - with the buttons and flowers around the photo but the rest is all mine as far as I know anyway. Off to hang with Ruth, Michelle etc today and maybe do some scrapping, mostly chatting probably.
Finally got my Freestyle book yesterday. Oohh and my FK Awards book arrived too with 2 of my layouts in. Will mull over them today.
Have a good weekend - the sun is finally shining.

So it seems ...

... to be becoming a once a week job updating this blog. I will try very hard this week to update more often. Went down to the Scrapbooking, Stamping show in Hamilton on Saturday. Was pretty cool, some awesome product around.
Found this cool gallery yesterday - check her out man - cool as.
I think my Tarisota just arrived - hold on - just go and check the mail. Yep another little package of adorable, yummy ribbons and fabric.
Be back later with some layouts maybe. Working on a couple today. And off to get a haircut.

Creations this week

Thank you, thank you for all the comments. You guys are the best.
I am trying desperately to line this text up with the pics but its a no go, so I give up. I'm sure you can work it all out anyway.

A couple of layouts I've done this week.

And a card inspired by the young Mrs Nic Howard. I have new stamps :))

Oh and Fiona I take classes at Scrappin Downunder in Takanini.

Busy week

Wow I had a busy week and I've been a very slack blog updater, sorry. I've had lots of visitors to my blog but not many comments :((.
Please even just say 'Hi lianne' if you visit. I loooove to see who visits.
I taught this Fabric Sticker class on Wednesday night and here's the layout we did. Was fun. I love to see everybodies take on the layout - some people chose different colours which looked so cool.

Then yesterday I took an all day crop. We had a great day didn't we Michelle. I was rapt to help a few people out with their layouts and see their pleased faces with the results.
And I still don't have my copy yet but I'm presuming since I signed the contract that this layout is in the Awards book. Has anyone seen it yet?

Here's my blogging and scrapping friend Karen, and look at Pippi Longstocking she's so cute. Tanya you're a hard case girl - thanks for helping me feel better on Sunday.

Our gang of painters.

Gaye was covered in plasters and she was 'Plastered' as in drunk - we all laughed so she won our most humorous prize.

And the big picture - so to speak. The whole gang who attended Scrapcamp.

So that's all the group photos. Sorry I didn't get them loaded sooner.

Wow did you see my visitors counter went over 10000 yesterday. Those last few 100 went fast.
