I've gone walk about!

Thanks to the lovely Kirsty Peterson, she's helped me set up a Wordpress blog which is where I've moved to.
Sorry for the mucking around, but you can now find me here

See you over there!

Whooo! Whoo!

Hope everyone's weekend is going well. We had 3 extra kiddies stay here last night and they were all so good. As the kids get older they seem to just want to do their own thing and are just off in the bedrooms or playing outside for most of the time - until it's time to eat!LOL One of the girls wanted to do a photo shoot (yay! always good practise) and then I taught her how to play around with the photos in photoshop.
We've done nothing else productive with our weekend, which has been nice actually.
A yell out to fellow ASS DTer Jaimie who's celebrating a b'day today!! She shares a b'day with my father in law!
Congrats to Carole and Nic who have both recently joined the ASS DT. Great to have both you girls join us!
Here are the title pages I've done for the kids albums I've started.

I've been loving doing these albums so much and have already completed 7 pages for each of the 3 albums. The kids are so excited about their albums and can't wait till they are finished.
These are the owls I did for the Tarisota quiz 'who is who'. These chipboard owls are so addictive and I couldn't just stop at 1. This first one I painted the chipboard white and then I mod podged fancy napkins over the chipboard pieces.

This second one was created completely from felt. I traced the chipboard pieces onto the felt, cut the out and then glued them all together. Love the little felt balls!

This third one was done by covering the chipboard with pattern paper, sanding the edges and then adding some jewels.

Thanks everyone for the lovely welcome back to blogging. I'm missing my typepad blog. I can't reply to blog posts from blogger. I might think about getting another typepad account in the future.

I've got a little RAK to give away.

To win these Elsie frame packs, leave me a comment and I'll put all the names in a hat. Come out of lurking if you're a lurker - I'd love to meet you!

We've been making b'day invites this past month. Firstly for Annaliese's b'day which was on the 10th of March - she turned 7! And now again for Shayla's b'day which is the 10th of April. We went for invites with photos of the girls on them. Shayla helped with hers a lot and decided what sort of photo would look best to depict a slumber party and she also helped put them together.
Here they are:

I've got a feral flu this weekend but I really want to make a start on my kids albums that Nic Howard is inspiring me to do, check out Nic's blog here. I've decided that I'm going to do one for our adopted neighbour Cameron - he spends so much time here that he feels like another member of the family!LOL He was very excited when I took his photo yesterday so that I can make a start on an album for him also.
I'll leave you with a couple of layouts that were up on the ASS Blog this week. Using all Li'l Davis products! Check out Jason's hair in this one!LOL He was 18 in these photos.

Long time no post!
I'm back with blogger. When I closed down my typepad blog I cancelled my membership altogether.
So here we are nearly through a quarter of the year already! It's nice to have a bit more time now that the Units are finished.

Here's a pic of the girls out the front of the Units - we named them after our two beautiful girls!

I've been having a bit of a play with some new Luxe Designs papers over the Easter weekend. I've made these cards and layout.

Here's a link to a fun little comp on the Tarisota Blog today 'who is who' - you could win a gorgeous bracelet designed by Tamar!

Bits and pieces

Found a link to this on 2Peas,
type in your name and create your own slogan! Each time you type your name in it gives you a new slogan for your name.

Some of mine are:

Dial Down the Chris
Come to life. Come to Chris
Go Crack a Chris

And some for Jason:

The real smell of Jason
It needn't be hell with Jason
I'm a secret Jason drinker

Just a little bit of fun anyway!LOL

In other news - Leisa from Scrapsidaisy has started her own blog! It's in my side bar if you want to check it out. Also with some other new blog names I've entered - Chrissy Berry, Lauren Rhodes and Carole Jason. You gotta check out the work Carole has just done for Junkitz on her blog - awesome!

Cath from stamp search has just updated her website, you can also this out from my side bar!

I felt so inspired by the latest issue of FK that I did a little run down of all the things I love about it this month. You can check out what I wrote here

I don't have any work to share today, so will leave you with a funny photo of my nephew Jack. He'd just lost one of his top teeth and the other one was just hanging by a thread - he looks so cute!
Oh, and how can I forget to thank my wonderful mum for having the girls at her house for the past 2 days. They have such a terrific time when they're with mum. She lives near the beach so she walked them down to the beach yesterday morning - they took pancake mixture and made them on a bbq by the water for breaky! What a special Nanna!

Something exciting!!!

Finally I can let the cat out of the bag about this one. A couple of months ago I was asked by Aussie Scrap Source if I would like to be their first 'Guest Designer'! I had to create a layout with products from their site (which wasn't hard as they have the most awesome products on their site) and I also had to provide step by step instructions on how to create the layout. ASS then compiles the layout, instructions and products into a kit and will sell them to Scrapbooking stores all around Australia! The idea is that Scrapbooking Stores will buy these kits for the teachers in their stores to teach as a class. How cool!! Anyway, if you want to check out the layout click here then click on the 'products' menu in their sidebar and under the very first category you will see 'May class kits' my kit is the third kit along called 'Dazzle with Diamonds'. I want to say a big thanks to Rach Axton from ASS who stepped me the whole way through the process and was a great help when it came to picking products and staying under the budget! Thanks Rach!!!

Some work to share! Here is a mini canvas I made for Leisa from Scrapsidaisy to display in her store. I got to meet the lovely Leisa at the Scrap Needs retreat in March and she is just as wonderful in real life as she is chatting online. I love doing work for her little shop at Wingham and she's also just put one of my very talented friends 'Debbie Kingston' on as a design team member as well! Congrats Deb! Some of Debbie's work can be seen in the Scrap Needs gallery under 'Debbie K'.
Some of the footy tipping girls are doing a bit of a layout swap at the moment, and here is the layout I created for the lovely Lauren Rhodes Thanks Lauren for giving me such a cool photo to work with!
Yesterday was the wonderful Kirsten De Forest's b'day - I hear she turned 21, well, that's how young this girl looks!LOL Hope you're day was great Kirst and that you get your computer fixed up really soon!!
Lastly, thanks for all the b'day wishes for my big, beautiful girl Shayla - I'm still coming to terms with being the mother of an 8 year old!!LOL She's a loving wonderful daughter to have and such a terrific big sister to Annaliese (most of the time!LOL).
And thanks to all the newbies that have left have left me comments lately and to everyone that takes the time to stop by and have a read!
