Scrapbook Savvy July Cyber Crop

Last weekend I played along with the Scrapbook Savvy Cyber Crop... I cant remember the last time I actually go to do the challenges, or even managed to load them to the gallery!

Kerryn gave us a puzzle challenge for this months criteria... we had to have an arrow, butterfly, flower, a frame and a flag on our layouts

This layout is for Renee's challenge, we had to use stitching on our layouts.. I have stitched the buttons on and used some rubon stitching as well.

  This one is for Kirsten's school album and I used the sketch that Anthea used for her challenge

Thanks for dropping by

Mixed Media Art

My gorgeous friend GiGi has been doing mixed media canvases for quite a while now, long before it became the 'other craft' for scrapbookers.  She has decided to open a Made It store to sell some of her canvases.

On her blog she is also going to have classes and tutorials, which I am really excited about... I know she has her first class nearly ready to go live and I cant wait to put my name down for that one! GiGi has also created a facebook page, make sure you go over a click on the 'like' button.

While I was browsing her blog today I came across this post where Gi had done an art journalling class by Christy Tomlinson.

Well, Christy is running this class again.... and I have signed up to do it too! And it starts today!!! It runs for three weeks, and because she has already done the class previously it ALL went up today, and will be available online for 3 months.. so no rush at all :)

I am off to town in the morning to gather up some supplies that I dont have here at home... which isnt many lol.. I love the fact that most of the things we need are what we would ordinarily use scrapbooking/cardmaking or recyle some things in our homes.

Thanks for dropping by, and dont forget to like Gi's facebook page and also subscribe to her blog feed so you dont miss out on her classes!

Love yourself more

I was blog hopping this morning when I came across this blog post from galadarling. The first thing I saw was this picture

The first few paragraphs go like this:

"Love yourself more,” we’re told. But what does that mean? What, exactly, does that look like? Does it mean spending the day in bed, or going out & getting some exercise? Does it mean eating a bowl of chocolate ice-cream, or eating a salad instead?
Well, it can be all of these things. The root of radical self love is in listening to your intuition, & learning to hear what your body is telling you it needs. 

I am so glad that I came across this post...I feel that I am in a time of my life where I should start looking after "ME" and take a step back from trying to look after everyone else...... including friends and family and start looking for the real ME... not just a mother, wife, daughter and friend but 'ME -Donna'.

It is time to clean out that cupboard called my head and get rid of all the negative things that keep dragging me down and to move positively forward...

I love this... I am thinking of doing a canvas with this on it and hanging it where I will see it every day

Thank you, all my BEAUTIFUL FRIENDS

amazed at how much one can change in 12 months!

Not long ago Kirsten bought her school photos home and today I thought I would scrap one of them. When I was in Wollongong I bought the Simple Stories 'Life Documented' collection kit from Scrapbooking delights. I had seen this range on line but decided I didnt need it in my stash... that was until I saw IRL and thought it would be perfect for Kirsten's school photos.

While I was scrapping away I thought I would go and look for the Layout that I did of Kirst's last year school phtotos just to compare the changes. Well, lets just say I was totally blown away at how grown up she looks now..(dont know if that is a good thing or not lol) What do you think??

I am so proud of the beautiful teenager, both inside and out, that she has turned out to be....(fingers crossed it stays that way!)

So here is the layout that I did of her today

doing some layout clean up ;)

I was having a bit of a clean up in my scrap room today (amazing I know pmsl!) And I found some layouts that I havent shared with you all yet.

This one is one that I did yesterday

And the rest that I have done over the last couple of months.

As you see, I have started scrapping those not so perfect photos that I have of my girls that I have taken before I bought my first digital camera... I just wish I was a scrapper when my girls were little, I am sure that I would have taken more care when taking photos to document their lives :(

Thanks for dropping by! And thankyou for all the comments you might leave.. they certainly make my day
Love Donna xxx
