Here is another layout I did using papers from Scrapfriends. I love these papers - they are like a cardstocl thickness...I have cut the film strip section from another piece of scrapfriends paper......
They have a whole bunch more of these cool papers too.....
Lucky me!!! I was recently asked to do a guest DT spot and that led me to Scrapfriends and their amazing range of papers. There are papers I have never seen before and they are GORGEOUS - and the prices are really good too- so go and check them out. I have a couple of layouts I have done already using some of the papers but Ill show you bit by bit!!!
I was invited to a special retreat last weekend and I wasnt going to go because Shane had to work and I would have the kids. And then I kept getting asked was I coming, was I coming - just bring the kids......and I couldnt make up my mind. Last minute Friday I decided - YEP - we will all go - so off I went - a bit nervously - who wants to go to a retreat with their four kids??? ANYWAY - I am so glad I did - I had an absolute ball ( I knew I would - these chicks rock!!) and my kids were really good!! I just owe Krissy a bag of maltesers!!!
Here is one of the layouts I did using papers from scrapfriends
Pretty paper huh - the scroll in the corner is also from the store......Ill be back soon with more show and tell!!

First up is a grungy layout of my son Daniel when he turned NINE last year .....
I have used the gorgeous mini cogs and even the frame that they were attached to - never one to leave anything to waste!!!
I love photo booth pics - such a funky size and the black and white looks so cool!!!
I embossed the blue frame with Twiddleybitz enamels - Jewel enamels - the colour is SAPPHIRE
and this next one will be joining the Twiddleybitz roadshow so you may even get to see it at the Paper show in Sydney!!
and this is the favourite recent piece of mine.....
I just love Twiddleybitz off the page pieces and I bought some of their gleam gilding wax when I was at the paper show in Brisbane back in June and I am loving the stuff!!!!
Its a wax based gilding cream which you apply with just a soft cotton cloth. Its permanent and lightfast - you can even shade it by layering - gives a fabulous effect. This is how I have made the birdcage gold!!!
I found the little gold bird in one of the Fabulous Christmas shops and thought he might like this little home!! Cute huh!!
I also have some RAK to give away - just leave me a comment and I will draw a random winner out on Monday morning....there are LOTS of chance to win some prizes - you just have to be in it to win it!!!
Here is a pic of what you could win and if I get more than 20 comments - I will add to this little stash too!!
Next on the Twiddleybitz bloghop is Louise Williams - another AMAZINGLY talented scrapper !! Just love her work!!!
The fabulous Websters papers Lets Celebrate - I got some from My2angels and together with the fabulous embellishments Tracy sells - I was able to put together this layout with photos from Teleahs 6th birthday!!
My husband is an inspirational man! He proves that it is never to late to learn something new and you can Dare to dream !! He left school after Year 12 and joined the local credit union. We travelled overseas for a year in our earyly twenties and he came back to work in debt collection - which of course he HATED. SO he retrained as a nurse and after 10 years of that - he retrained AGAIN and he is now a Doctor!!! To say I am proud of him doesnt even start to address what I feel for what he has done!! he graduated with honours and also earnt the University medal which is a huge award!!!!
This is done with a kit I purchased from Scrapbook savvy
Im such a bad blogger these days - life just gets busier and busier - with the kids and work and activites and we have a very busy social life at the moment - which is LOVELY - but sometimes it feels like a merry go round spinning out of control!!! Yes I can see you smiling - I bet you can relate cant you!!
I love it - I wouldnt have it any other way !!
SO here is a layout I did for Mad about scrappin...one word title , 2 somethings?? , three photos and four patterned papers I think....here is my take on it
So I bought the fabulous Wicked Princesses Girls night in kit - and I finally got to do it on the weekend and of course I had to scrap this pic of my mate Donna!!!! Everybody loves this woman - she is funny , beautiful and a very clever scrapper and she makes me laugh ...A LOT!!!!
