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.

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

Some more of my December Daily.

It is all finished and packed away until it comes out with my Christmas decorations in December. I have had my second last post go up on the Let's December Daily blog during the week. 

I made some paper bag envies to hold Asher's list and a letter to Santa.

To see how I made them pop on over to the blog.

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

Happy new year everyone.

I have been a bit slack with my blog updating yet again. Sorry.

We have had a very busy time out here of late with Asher's 13th birthday, Christmas, our trip down to Pemberton and going back to work.

Here are a few photos of what we have been up too.

Getting ready for Christmas.

Putting up the tree.

Christmas card photo.

I forgot to take a photo of the cards. Bother.

Birthday celebrations. 
Can't believe my girl is 13.

Part of her birthday present was a birthday makeover. Here is a shot of the end result. The tubs under her bed are full of stuffed toys that my girl just can't part with.

Her two favorite birthday presents.

Christmas day.

Missy and her present stash.

Pemberton holiday snaps.


The only scrapping that I have been doing lately is for my December Daily. Which I have now finished. You can check out the latest pages I have done over on the Let's December Daily blog. The rest of it is due to go up on the blog sometime this week. Once it is all up there I will share it here.
