Big purple share and some other stuff too.

Hey guys not too much new scrapping done this week as I was busy sorting out my scrappy stash for a garage sale that was held at my LSS today. I have totally culled my stash and for the first time in years I have room in my scrap cupboard and in my storage unit draws too. I ended up taking five bags of stuff of to the sale and Asher's teacher got three with another one here to go as well.
Here is a photo of my car boot all loaded up. My 52 week photo for the week.
Not too sure just what was sold yet. Will find out tomorrow but what wasn't will not be coming back in for sure. I'll donate it somewhere. Most of it was brought when I first started out card making/stamping and was stashed in containers that I haven't even looked in for a year or more and I wasn't likely to ever use.
Since our Princess Reenie has been home she has taken a liking to Asher's bean bag and last night as she was sleeping I couldn't help but snap this photo.Here are some projects that I did up for Purple onion last month that I never got around to posting here.
Love my Hi 5 girl. I used the love note block stamp along with the Vintage blank ticket and Doodled hearts stamps. The photo was taken back stage at Asher's dancing concert rehersals last year.
I love you card.I used the Doodled hearts stamp again with the Love you to stiches stamp which is on the same page as the Doodled hearts stamps.
If you can tell me just where I used the doodled heart stamp on my card I'll pop a rak in the post to you.
Thinking of you cardI used the Stitches set along with one of the Seasonal definitions set which I have stamped on both of the flowers before layering and folding them.
This will be on it's way to a fellow Purple onion dter who lost her sister a week ago.
Just for you card.I used the Hopscotch sentiments set.
This will be on it's way to Michelle as a thanks for passing the above card on for me.
I have added some finishing touches to my Feburary samples and will post up here soon. If you follow the links to the stamps in the shop you may have to scroll down the page to find the stamps I have used on some of them.
I also have had my step by step layout go live over the weekend as part of Therapys step weekend.
Popcorn muncher.I so love how this has turned out and have since done a 6 by 12 using the same steps. You can find the steps up in the forum here.
I'll be able to share that secret of mine soon. Anyone want to try and guess just what it is although a few of you are already in the know. lol
Well that's all for now girls.
Don't forget about the little rak I have up for grabs if you can tell me just where I used the doodled heart stamp on my I love you card.
Till next thanks for popping in and any comments that you may leave and happy scrapping.

Scrapping the music 1234

The new song is up over at Scrapping the music. 1234 by Plain white t's. Not one I've heard before but it is a really catchy song and has heaps of scrapable lyrics.
Here is my page.
This week I ended up getting my inspiration for my page from the name of the group rather than the song itself as with Missy A's sensative issues she dosen't like wearing anything lacey/ shired and having a stack of white t's on hand helps keep the itchies away under some of her tops and dresses.
I also was inspired by a layout done by the Fab Missy Mandy. So love your work Mandy. You can check out Mandy's Blue page here which I used as a sketch for mine and if you feel like taking up a Shabby Chic challenge or two from Mandy then pop in here.
lol at me teasing you all over my secret. You girlas should know what I am like by now. I'm not at all too sure just when it will go public but I'll give you a hint. I'm not the only one with the same
Well that's all from me for now I'm of to bed.
Thanks for popping in and any comments that you may leave and till next time happy scrapping.

Photos galore, some pages too and a secret.

After asking dh to sort it out for ages I have finally got a remote control for my camera and had some fun taking some photos yesterday.
Here are a few.
Yeap the family one ended up in a wrestling macth. lol
Here is another I took not long after we got home from swimming lesons.
Note to self. Don't try and get some nice photos after Asher has been wearing her swimming goggles for an hour or so. Looks like she has got two black eyes. lol
I have been taking pics of Princess Reenie too now that she is home.
Love this one. It is like she is saying get that camera out of my face.
I think I may be needing to buy her a new cat basket don't you.
And some scrapping too. Not that there is much I can share just now though. I have worked on a project for Therapy and this months Purple Onion projects. I have a few cards and two pages to share when I can.
The week before's 5 2 week album page.
Asher's new school bag. I had an oopsy when I went to put these into the jump rings I have all the other stored. Punched holes in the wrong edge of the top one so have had to do some creative covering on
Last weeks one.Yeap I couldn't not scrap Reenie. Sorry about the bad photo. I did this today at Christine's and forgot to take a photo of it till late and seing as I did it up for last week Hero Arts challenge it needed to be up tonight. Will take another photo and replace it durring the week.
Want to know a secret?
Thats all for now guys. Thanks for popping in and any comments and till tomorrow. Happy scrapping.

She's home, a page, a sneek peek and a secret.

Our Princess Reenie that is. It has been nearly 4 months and it is like she hasn't been gone at all. When updating on Sunday I forgot to share one of my Therapy Granola pages.The photos were taken on Australia day when we headed out to the beach for the afternoon. Don't forget that Basic Gret is on sale all month too. Pop in here and get your self some BG. goodies.
Here's a sneek peek of a class that I'll be running in Therapy on the 28th of this month. The kits are up in the shop here and you can find out more details here. Hope to see you there. Not to worry if you can't make it on the night as it will be up in the forum for a while giving you time to do it later.
There was something else I wanted to share. Bother it must of slipped my mind. Mustn't of been that important hey.
I have been doing a bit of scrapping over the last few nights but I've not taken any photos as yet so will share on Sunday what I can.

Scrapping the music and some happy news.

Here is my page for the latest Scrapping the music challenge. Hope you all can play along with us.
I used some of my new Purple Onion stamps on this layout seeing as they are the sponsors this fortnight and seeing as they sponsoured the living challenge over at One little word I did something I don't normally do and did a two for one
And now for my news.
In October last year one Sunday morning I let our Princess Reenie (pet cat) out the back door after getting up in the morning only to have Craig yelling from the bedroom saying there was a big dugite outside our bedroom window. We haven't seen Reenie since and assumed that she had been gotten by the snake.
We came home from Mum' s tonight to have Craig meet us at the front door with a message from the local vet that she was there. Asher is so excted she spent an hour or so bouncingaround the house singing Reenies coming home.
Craig is picking her up tomorrow and has bee told not asked to take the camera to the vet as I want photos of the reunion.
I have been listening to all the news of the fires over east and it is just so sad that all the lives and homes have been lost. I have a quite a few online friends that are in the fire areas and have been thinking of them all weekend. Hoping that you, your families and friends are safe.
Big big hugs from out west. I got a message from a girl friend saying that Coles will be donating all profits made on Friday to the bish fire appeal so guess where I'll be shopping on Friday.
Well I'm of to bed now.
As always thanks for popping in and any comments you may leave and happy scrapping

Purple onion tag card

I have quite surprised myself as purple is the one colour I tend to have trouble using but I love how this has turned out.I ended up putting it onto a card for a friend whose sister passed away on Sunday.

Thanks for popping in and till next time happy scrapping.

I'm the....I'm in...and a tag too

Scrapper in the lime light over at Scrapbook hub this month.
Pop on over and check it out. You may learn something about me you didn't know.
I also picked up a copy of Scrapbook creations 63 today as I have a layout in there. Usually it takes a little while for my layout to come back with the free mag but low and behold when I got to the post office today and handed over the little delivery notice card after buying SC at the newsagent what did I get my layout and free mag.
The Sweet Missy Tanya tagged me the other day with a photo tag. What you need to do is go to where you store your photos on your computer, open the forth folder and then load the forth photo in the folder here and share the story about it.
This is a photo I snapped at Asher's 8th b'day party just before christmas. My friend Christine's daughter Sammy and her pinta loot.I had to crop out one of Asher's little friend from the background of the photo as I'm not too sure how her mum is about having her photo up here on the world wide web.
Now here are the girls I am going to ask to share there photos too.
Well that's about it for now.
As always thanks for popping in and any comments and happy scrapping.

Past first day of school photos

While I had my external hard drive on and I remembered thought I'd share the past first day of school photos. I didn't have one walking of down the drive for Kindy as I thought though.
Pre Primary
Grade 1
Grade 2

She's still excited about going to school but I'm guessing the novelty will wear of soon. Tuesday is her music day and she might get taught how to play the recorder so I was told this morning that Tuesdays will be the best school day ever.

Till next time tahnks for popping in and any comments and happy scrapping.

first day back at school and cybercropping too

Well my Missy A headed of to school this morning so very excited to start grade three.
Here are a few pics. We decided that it was time for a new school bag as her scobby one had done four years. She had her heart set on this one at the shops. A big girl bag.
I will have to have a look back at my photos as I am sure I have taken one of these walking down the drive photos each first day.
Feel like a cyber crop. We are having one over at Scrap Therapy this weekend. The clues are popping up in the forum. The girls and I have got some great challenges for you all.
Hope to see you there.

Scrapping the music, some news and a blog award

The new song is up over at Scrapping the music I'll be your mirror. It is a song I've not heard of before and I pulled the word wind from the lyrics as it so suited this picture of Asher with the wind blowing her hair in her face.

If you would like the chance of wining some Purple onion goodies then play along if you can as they are sponsoring STM this month.

I woke this morning to a very nice email. I have been asked to join the team over at Scrap my memories as a Guest designer for March. So can't wait for my kit to get here from Canada.

I was given an award durring the week and forgot to post it and pass it on. Thanks Anthea. Love popping into your blog and checking out what's been happening. I miss our little catchs up when you were out here.

Well that's it from me for now. I took some pics of Missy today on her first day back at school. Will post some when I have had a look at them.

Till next time happy scapping.

Aussie day photos and some scrapping too.

Hi all I'm a bit late in sharing my Aussie day photos but here are a few of my favs. lol I have already scrapped two of the many I took but can't share just yet.
Here is Asher holding up some beach treasure as she called it.and I just love this one.After she had a play in the water she had fun on the flying fox and I had fun snapping too.
I played along with Allie's blind scrap on Wednesday night and here is my page.Another page of Missy A on her birthday. She has saying "Did you notice...." alot and lately it is usally followed by "That I'm 8 now" to who ever will listen.
I am having fun doing up my pages in the 52 week album. Here is my layout for the week before last.Asher doing the chicken dance.
I am stil unsure just what to use for last week. Probably the little pet shop ones seing as I have already scrapped a few of the Aussie day ones already and will end up doing more of them I think.
Here is the first weeks page. I didn't want to share it until Michelle had posted it up on the Purple Onion blog.
I also had some good news durring the week. My Hero Arts valentine card got an honorable mention. So wrapped and can't wait to get my little parcel.
Here is a card I did up for this weeks challenge.Well I think t hat is about all for now. Stay tuned as I'll be posting again with my latest STM challenge and some cybercropping details too.
Till next time as always thanks for popping in, any comments you may leave and happy scrapping.
