I'm so hyped ...

from my weekend at SENZ. It was great meeting the people behind the emails and forum posts and cathing up with friends.
Loved meeting and chatting to Steph from Up2Scrap and Kelly R and talking about fun stuff. Cool to see my ole mates Nic and Lucy and catching up with the ever inspiring No 8 Wired girls. Met the ladies from Paper Pesto, very cool kits. And always love talking to Lisa, she always inspires me. Enjoyed a nice dinner with the ladies from Create, heaps of laughs.
And thanks Tanya for the big hugs, great to see you again.
Oh and my classes went GREAT. I really enjoyed teaching this weekend.

So do you want to know what Jo and I are up to. Can you guess? Check back tomorrow to find out.
And we're still taking Scrapcamp regos but not for much longer, so if you want info or a rego form email me.

SENZ swap pins

I made some!! Just a few but I did it, haven't finished yet but I should have about 20 or so when I've finished this weekend hopefully. Here's a sneak of them - cute little felt heart cushions, hehe.

I'm loving the Pink CD 'I'm not Dead' at the mo. James gave it to me for Mothers Day and it's really cool. There's a song on it she sings with her Dad that he wrote when he was at war in Vietnam. It was the first song she ever learnt. It's really lovely.

And I can't wait till August cause I'm going to Christina Aguillera with Emma, James and Jayde. Wahoo, how exciting - she rocks man. Her voice is incredible. Love her 'Candyman' song at the mo. Very funky. The video is totally cool.

AND Rob and I are going to Steely Dan in September - SO can't wait. That's gonna take us right back to when we were about 18. COOL.

And another ...

... Up2Scrap layout using Trina's photo. Thanks ladies for letting me use your beautiful photos. The photo is mounted on chipboard then cut in half to make doors. Hidden journalling under the 'doors' and I used the Scotch tie downs as door handles. FUN!!

Hi :))

Yes I've left it a bit long again. But I do think about it every day, blogging that is, but the day goes by and I'm too busy and it just gets too late.
Anyway, I got the latest Up2Scrap in the mail yesterday and it's COOL AS. Congrats to everyone in it, great stuff. If you don't already get this mag, you must go out there and find it or SUBSCRIBE, but be in quick cause last month they sold out fast.

Just thought I'd show you one of my layouts in it. My brief was 'Autumn'. I didn't really have any Autumn photos so I was very kindly leant some by 2 lovely ladies. So here's the layout using Lesley's photos. Unfortunately the colours are quite pale in the scan but if you get the mag you can see it better. There's hidden journalling under the flower centre and the wire and beads are wrapped around one of those Scotch tie downs (covered in Kindyglitz) which I used in all my layouts - quite fun when you actually start thinking of different ways to use them. Will show you more tomorrow.
And the latest NZ Dare challenge is to 'Scrap a Childhood photo under 10'. Here's my layout. So get on over there and leave some LOVE and join in the fun.

And Jo and I have something up our sleeves so keep an eye out for something soon OK.
