Pink Kisses Party

Gotta love PINK! This layout is from a birthday party Kaylee went to in April. It was such a cute birthday party and all of the little girls love it! :)

I used Junkitz papers with matching Bazzills, inked and stitched in purple. The flowers are Petaloo and the swirls are Queen & Co.

The Pancake Parlour

I LOVE this LO! I used Basic Grey with some of its included adhesive shapes and letters. Lucas took me out for my 30th birthday to one of the neatest places here. The food was excelent and afterwards we took a guided tour of the Australian Parliment House. That willl be antoher LO, of course!

My updated scrapping area!

I think I am finally organized! I got this new desk with matching dresser for free off Craigslist! I LOVE it! I more than tripled my desk space!
This is where I do most of my scrapbooking. I have the embellishments I use most right front and center along with my much needed lap top and sewing machine right at arms reach. Then there is my cutting tools, papers, an more embellishments! :)

Kaylee getting her award

Little Miss Kaylee got an award at school for always trying her hardest with her work! This is her with Mr. Yarrington, the Principal. She was sooo excited when her name was called she ran off the stage to the podium! I wish I had a video camera! :) School holidays are quickly approaching, I wish we had somewhere to go. What in the world am I going to do with her home for 2 weeks? School holidays are not usually that bad, but this one falls during the winter... Blah, hopefully it is not too rainy so we can play outside!

Sending my love card

Another stamped cards for a friend made out of scraps. I think I need some of these monkey stamps! :)

Fathers Day card

DCWV papers with matching Bazzills. The stamp is from Inque Botique with chalk ink in brown. This is the card Kaylee and I made for Lucas.

Thinking of you card

I used some Making Memories pp's with matching Bazzill for the card base. The Stamped image is from Autumn Leaves. I am not sure who makes the sentiment. I embellished with chalk ink, ribbon, Primas, and liquid pearls. This card is going to one of my friends who is dealing with a tough time right now.

Another page kit

Another page kit for a friend! Mickey papers from EK Success and matching Bazzill. Everything is inked and stitched. Embellished with Primas and ribbons. I am almost caught up with my outgoing commitments, then I can start on my own pages! Yahoo!

Happy Father's Day!

Yes, it is that time of year again! Lucas is such a great father and husband. Today is the American version of Fathers Day, the Aussies celebrate some time in September. Of coure Lucas *thinks* he gets to celebrate both, lol!

I miss my dad. I wish I could be there to give him his gift and the card that Kaylee wrote and drew in. Such is life living overseas.

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!

A pagekit for a friend

Just a little something I made for a friend today! The pagekit consists of a title, a photo mat, a matchbook, a tag, and an altered coaster. I don't make kits often enough, but I really had fun with this one. Now to make a few cards out of the scraps!

Yes, it is winter in Australia!

Here is a quick peek of what Kaylee and I have been making- scarves! I got her the Singer Knitting machine and we- ok, well I have been knitting while she sits and watches me. :)
{Don't mind the messy hair!}

My Scrap Area

Since I have a clean room, I thought I would share my collection! This photo on the left is my cutting & sewing stations.

And the next pic is my workspace, which may change if I get a new desk that was offered on Craigslist! {YAY}

Then there is the res of my workspace and embellies on the floor categorized and sorted. Both of my paper sorters are FULL- I think I need another!

This is where I try to organize my paints, threads, stickles, stamps, pictures, and outgoing mail.

This is my favorite area. I love dew drops, blooms, inks, and the little piggies I got at the market... *giggle*

Here is one of the LO's that I made for my best friend, Heather. I just finished this yesterday, and I need to get it packaged up and ready to be mailed. The pp's are Sass-a-Frass and I matched them up with Bazzill. Most everything is stitched and absolutely everything is inked. I used a map from Page Maps for reference. I have a few more things I need to make to have her package complete for mailing! Hugs Heather, I miss you girl!

A card portfolio with 4 cards

This is just a little something I made yesterday- A card portfolio with 4 matching cards. The pp's are from making Memories and I used different Studio G stamps for the sentiments. Yes, I mainly scrap girly, so I am sure you will see a lot nore of pretty, foo fooish things on this blog! *wink, wink* I love to embellish with inks and stickles. I also enjoy making gifts for others.

~ I am new to blogging! ~

Something came across me and I decided to start a blog. Living overseas makes it hard to communicate with everyone back in the USA, so I decided to start a blog, not only for my crafting, but for my family and friends as well. So here it goes!
