Let's get shabby share

The latest challenge has gone up over at Let's get shabby. For my sample this month I created a page for my Tassie holiday mini album. I can't believe that it has been a year already since Asher and I got on a plane and went over for our snowy adventure.

Snow fun.

One big adventure.

I created a peek a boo page. Here it is in the album.

Snow fun in.

One big adventure in.

I am in a major scrappy rut out here and need something to give it a kick so if you have come across any good challenges that may just do the trick please let me know.

As always thanks for popping in, any comments and happy creating.

Let's get shabby share

The new challenge over at Let's get shabby is up and I had fun playing with my sample for this month. When Mandy suggested the "Double" criteria I knew just what it was that I was going to do.

Double the laughs double the fun.

The photos are of Asher and her bestie taken at her birthday lunch last year. A double layout one for us and one for her friend.

Make sure you pop on over and see what the other shabby girls have done and say goodbye to one of the girls who has been with us for a while now and welcome a new member.

There has been no other scrapping done out here lately. I just seem to have lost my drive to do it. I also have a dilemma. I already have 17 albums just for our family layouts and I have got a big stack of layouts that have got to go into albums once I buy some, I'm guessing at another 8 albums maybe. At this rate I will be surrounded in albums that rarely get looked at. Just how many is too many!!!!!!!!!!!!


I spent a few days in Adelaide with my besties this month. We flew out Thurs day lunch time and home Monday night. It was 4 days filled with lots of laughing, sightseeing and eating. A much needed break for all of us. Here are a few of the many photos that I took. (Sorry Jane lol)

My sister in law Margaret on the left and Jane on the right. Along with our furry friends who went everywhere with us. Socks, Gemma and Ben. 

Jane loves the pandas but me I love otters and was glad I was there at the right time to get this photo at feeding time.

On our walk back from the zoo we went through the botanic gardens and I jut had to play in all the leaves.


It was also my birthday during the week and my girl and I had fun snapping a few photos together out back before going out shopping for my present and a yummy dinner out.

As always thanks for playing popping in, any comments and happy creating.

Sunday scrappy share.

Don't die of shock girls but it is Sunday and I have a scrappy share for you. lol

The new Let's get shabby challenge was revealed during the week. Here is my sample.

Find your inner artist.

On our last day in Tassie almost a year ago Asher and I went for a walk down to the beach and past a love heart stepped out in the sand. Asher had fun adding her touches to it. She wrote in the center of the heart we (heart) Tas.

This months challenge is to work with maps and knowing that I anted to use one of our Tassie photos I found a printable vintage Tassie map online and used that as my base. After giving it a heavy handed spray with some distress ink not much of the map detail could be seen so I had to add in the tag. 


My other shares are a layout and a card. The photos aren't that great as I had to take them on my phone.

Happy book worm.

I created this for the in store Dusty attic sketch challenge. I'm not usually a big chipboard lover so using it was a challenge and I like how it turned out.

Happy birthday cards.

Two nephews have birthdays soon so I needed to make male birthday cards which I usually struggle with. Not this time though. These came together no trouble at all.

Let's get shabby share

Longtime no post. Lately I'm not getting much scrapping done and what I am doing is for Let's get shabby. Here is my latest project.

And some detail shots.

The journaling isn't very clear but is about how she loved getting cuddles from a bunny at a park Christmas party.

Make sure you pop on over and check out the latest challenge and what the other girls have done.

Out at the shops last week I seen a top that was a no brainer on whether I get it for my girl or not. So didn't need to think twice about it. What do you all think?

Seeing as she is now at least two inches taller than me it so suits her and if you add to it all the stuff that has been going on at school where I am always telling her that she needs to remember that she is better than those that are causing her troubles it has a double meaning.

Let's get shabby share

After a long break over Christmas and the new year Let's get shabby is back up and running with a great challenge. You can see the challenge details over on the Let's get shabby blog. Here is my sample.

Puppy fund tag.

My girl has been wanting a puppy for a while now and her Dad has said that if she could save up her pocket money that he might get her one. So since after Christmas she has been saving away so I decided to make her up a Puppy fund tag using a vintage dog tag I have had in my stash for a while now.

I was inspired by the dog in the poster along with the colours and it's layout. 

Attached to the back of the tag is a clear snap lock bag in which Missy has managed to save $41.00. 


I did manage to get some scrapping done for two challenges but being the forgetful one I am at the moment I didn't get to post them up onto my blog and into the challenges in time so here they are.


Created for last months Delish inspiration board.

I just love the colours and other inspiration elements and had fun creating this. I was hoping to use some of my Christmas tree owl photos but they didn't look right.


I hope.

Created for the sketch challenge over at Dusty attic and entered into the in-store competition at Made with Memories. The photo was taken by the talented Sandie Mallon

My scrappy mojo is back.

I managed to do some scrapping this weekend. Something for me to share now and something for later.

Here is my now share.

Kissing long hair goodbye.

I created this for the sketch over at Skissedillia using some goodies from the kit I put together inspired by this months kit over at Counterfeit kits.

While playing around with the background for my photos I had some washi tape down which was covered with a smear of paint to tone it down. I wasn't happy with how it looked so pulled up the washi which acted as a mask.

And my journaling. As much as I loved Asher's long hair I hated the daily battles we had getting her to look after it so after my nieces wedding we had it cut short.

Here is my kit that I put together for Counterfeit kits.

Inspired by this kit from Kits de Sommi.

I loved the red and blues but as hard as I tried to stick to it I ended up having to go with the minty greens instead of the blue as I didn't have as much blue in my stash as I thought.


Out here it was the first week back at school. Here are some pics of Asher. Not her first day, her second as she had a few little issues getting ready and we ran out of time for the photo. 

A photo shoot with my girl wouldn't be normal without her wanting to do something silly so here she is pretending to be asleep

and balancing the chalk board on her head.

Yay I have scrapped.

But before I share with you the first of my scrapping for 2014 I think I should share some of my December Daily album here now that it has all gone up over on the Let's December Daily blog.  As it ended up being a big project I won't share it all here but you can pop on over and see it all here if you want.

My December Daily 2013

This year I decided to contain my lumpy bumpiness in a card box. It is a snug fit but I love how it turned out.

And a few of my favorite cards.

I have already started to gather some ideas on this years December Daily album.


Now onto my scrapping. I had my monthly crop day on the weekend and managed to get three pages done.

The joy.

This one was created for the kraft it up challenge, that is if the Christmas photos fall into the summer theme. Wasn't till I had it nearly done that I realized I had forgotten the photo criteria.

Santa 12


Created for the 123 challenge blog. The feathers part of the challenge had me stumped until I popped into riot and found the feather spray in the millinery department.
  Photo taken by the talented Sandie Mallon.


Yesterday we headed out to the sky show on the foreshore and Missy had fun catching jelly fish before the fire works started.

And Missy being who she is just had to name the first one. Meet Peanut butter jelly time.

She ended up with about 20 all up.

As usual until next time thanks for popping in, any comments and happy creating.
