First DT Layout: Love Sprinkles!

Wednesday, 28 April 2010

Hi everyone,

Well I have been a bit quiet of late, getting ready for Daniel's parents to visit on the weekend, job hunting, etc. But I am super excited to be able to share my first DT layout for A Day in the Life of Renee with you! Honestly everyone should check out, the store that sells the awesome flowers aka Sprinkles! And I think they are soooo well priced, go and check it out for yourself, I dare you!

And now here's my layout! (Check out the gorgeous peach flowers, they're the Sprinkles). The Sprinkles were just too pretty to add too much around so I've kept my layout simple. The photo if one of my faves from Mum's wedding last year, of her dancing with her father. So cute.

Now make sure you check out for the rest of the DT's layouts and the challenge in the coming days!! Hope to see a few of you entering.

Until next time,

Hello lovelies,

Well I have been in Melbourne for a week so I'm yet to post my creations from the lovely scrap day I had at Annette's place, but I will when I return.

In the mean time, you should all go and checkout the Sprinkles by Renee site. Not only are there previews of the awesome flowers that are going to be on sale as of May the 1st but there is also a competition going! Winner gets $20 worth of the gorgeous product and all you have to do is become a follower, how easy is that. Once there is 100 followers everyone will be entered in to win. So come on ladies, get blogging and we'll be at 100 before we know it so some lucky lady can win!

Until next time,

Baby frame

Monday, 12 April 2010

A few weeks ago I posted about our friend who was about to have her baby. She did (eventually) have him and after much humming and hahhing over what to make as a baby gift I decided on a simple photo frame. I've never been that good at them but hadn't done one in ages and decided to give it another go. I kept it super simple and was totally happy with the end result. I couldn't get a wooden frame so settled for a thin paper mache frame and decided to basically decoupage the frame with strips of torn paper rather than making it too neat!

So here we go, I think from now on if I do more frames I'll keep them simple, I do simple better!

Thanks for looking!

Until next time,

Exciting News!

Sunday, 11 April 2010

Hi all,
I know I have already posted today but I am just too excited not to share before I head to bed! I've been accepted onto my first ever design team and I'm so incredibly excited about the site it's with. The lovely Renee is about to launch a store for handmade embellies, I've seen a sneak peak and I'm so happy I'll be getting to work with this product, I'm in love already. Sprinkles by Renee will be officially opening on the 1st of May so I'll be directing you all that way then. But for now, check out the link in my sidepanel for A day in the life challenges and check out her blog. First challenge will be in May and I can't wait to get into it! I'll be updating you all soon.

Oh and this is the layout I created for the DT submission. Renee asked that we do a layout using pink and brown which I haven't done in forever so just thought I'd share...(especially because I think my gorgeous man and my little cousin Katie just look so adorable in this photo)

Until then,

P.S Am I the only one who thinks Train's 'Soul Sister' is one hell of a catchy song?!

The aforementioned layout

Saturday, 10 April 2010

The lighting here is not my friend today, it's overcast and I doubt the sun is going to come out properly so this will just have to do.

My best friend (Natalie) and I had glamour shots taken as a kind of 21st birthday present to ourselves a few years ago. We had some photos taken individually and then asked them to take some of the two of us and this is one of my favourites!

Until next time,

Super Fast Layout!

Friday, 9 April 2010

I'm usually a fairly leisurely scrapper, though I wouldn't say I'm slow. I just get distracted too easily, but once I know what I'm doing the layout doesn't take long. Tonight I'd say it was only about 30 minutes from when I sat down at my scrapbook desk to when the layout was completed which was a fair effort in my opinion considering I had no idea where to start! So including searching for a photo to use, searching for a paper I liked in my very unorganised stack and waiting for paint to dry on the layout I'm pretty happy it only took a half hour. Unfortunately since it's dark I haven't photographed the layout yet but I most certainly will tommorrow.

Just had to share.

Until next time,

Easter Long Weekend

Tuesday, 6 April 2010

Pheww what a weekend, I spent soo much time in the car but had a fabulous time! Spent one night camping with my dad, stepmum and little sissy, another night in Warrnambool at my Uncle's place and another at mum's place in Melbourne before coming home Monday night. I didn't take a great deal of pictures, but snapped a few just to remind myself of the weekend.

First few were taken in Eildon: 2 of Krista and I and one of Dad with our 4wd 'convoy'!
The others were taken in Warrnambool. How cute is the koala?!
We managed to get a group shot whilst walking around the craters at Tower Hill in Warrnambool by putting my camera on timer on a post! And the final three photos are of my awesome cousins James, Andrew & Matthew.
Like I said, not too many but at least I have a few to scrap, even though they're not fantastic!
Until next time,

I finally christened the sewing machine!

Thursday, 1 April 2010

As the title suggests I finally used my sewing machine! I've never sewn on my layouts before until I did a little handstitching on the one below. And although I got a sewing machine for Christmas I hadn't actually used it until last night! So I decided to stitch away on a couple of layouts just to practice. I kept them pretty simple to highlight my first tries at stitching and although fairly simple I think they came out well! So yay for my sewing machine, it may just become my new best friend (shhhh don't tell Natalie!).

I think I actually scrapped this photo a few years ago but I don't have my old layouts here (they're somewhere at my parents place...I think) to check. This is my gorgeous cousin Madeleine back when she was about 4 (she's now 8!)

I wanted this photo to be the feature because I just absolutely love it. One of my favourite photos from our Europe trip last year of my favourite place: the gorgeous Swiss Alps. This photo was actually taken whilst on a sunset cruise on Lake Lucerne the day we arrived in Switzerland.

Thanks so much for the lovely comments everyone, I think I'm becoming addicted to my own blog (vain, perhaps?!)!

Oh and for all of us hanging out waiting for the DT reveal at Snobby Walrus ( it's only a few hours now I believe!

Until next time,
