Here's my second layout, the challenge for crafty tart was to use recycled products,I used the top of a pizza box for the back ground and the backing of a packet of prima de vines behind the photo,an old clock face and some twine of a gift i had. I nearly forgot to add the journaling which is a tag slid under the photo.
Still only have 2 points all up not doing to well am i lol.
I still cant load anything as i cant get photos of them,i really hate winter it gets dark so early,and i don't like the cold either............... Have a great day :)

Loveing Prima stuff

I am loving all the new Prima stuff,i decided to join in the crafty tart challenge,nothing like a good challenge to get the mojo humming along,for this one you had to use a page out of a book,I chose an old dictionary page and high lighted the words [Aunt...Sister of mother] I love scraping these old photos of my aunt.
I had to work today [Saturday] i haven't worked a Saturday for months and found it hard to get up and go lol. I am looking forward to our PJ party up at SBS, we are having a big girls sleep over with lots of scrapping,im sure there will be a few good photos to be had hehe!!
Also iv booked in for the sketchbook retreat in November,Cherie is also going so we get to be roomies again,we had a blast at the last one we went to.

Stunning gift

I got a wonderful surprise today when i got home from work, there was a parcel waiting for me and inside was this cute little box

When i opened it the first thing i saw was something gold and sparkly and a wrapped parcel,

When i opened the parcel there was a gorgeous bracelet, i love it,makes me fashionable hehe

And check out this tin,wooo wee, i cant stop looking at it,its stunning and so much work to make it.

This has to be one of the nicest gifts i have ever received,lots of hard work and love went into these,and that makes them something really special,and where did i get such a nice surprise from? a lovely lady called Sonia,she makes the most awesome stuff ,she paints,scrapbooks,makes jewelry,cards,altered art, the list gos on. Thank you so much Sonia,its so nice to receive such a wonderful surprise,and it was so much fun opening it,it was like finding treasure,I'm still smiling :)

Oh my Lord would you look at my mess???? lol when i scrap i tend to grab use and toss !!! and this is the result of my wayward ways, i have brought several things over the last few weeks and have NO idea where i put them,and you can see why! so today i am having a Major clean up,in reality it will most likely take me days or weeks to sort out this lot out. I will be making a call on the warehouse for some storage containers and tossing out stuff well maybe not tossing out just removing from my main scraping space.When i get into a mess like this i tend to loss my mojo,mainly because i get frustrated trying to find things. So here's hopeing in a few days i will have some photos to shear of my new found scrap area lol

New Stamps

I went to a demo night at Scrapbook studio last night,we had a play with some of the new stamps
and tried a few techniques, the card above is one we did,we stamped and embossed the doll then coloured her in,i would never have given these stamps a second look but now iv used it i think its kinda cute.
I'm not at work today,i have been felling of colour for days and not sleeping,last night i eventually went to sleep in a chair i keep in the kitchen with the heater going about 430 am this morning,then when my son woke me i had a head that was banging so hard i thought it would drop of.After a sleep today i am felling some what better but have a nasty cough now.
Any way i hope to tidy my scrap area this weekend as its a total mess!! post again soon,have a great weekend
