...all you have to do is go here, leave a Birthday wish, follow the Scrapville blog and spread the word about this give away and Janet's birthday sale. That is pretty easy right!?

I have been to two retreats since my last update, both of which were really, really fun and involved some serious lack of sleep. By the time I got home from both of them, all I wanted to do was sleep.
I had great fun meeting people that I had only ever 'spoken' to on forums and such, learning new techniques, catching up with friends that I know from up here and meeting a bunch of other people. Bring on next year and the next round of retreats....I am in!
Another thing that I have to admit is that I really haven't done much scrapping except for what I have done at the retreats. I have been taking lots of pics though and have a new pile just waiting to be scrapped.
I do have to make a mention of that amazing crushed glass that I coated my stars with...it looks amazing IRL and my photos do NOT do it justice. If you want a direct link to it....you can find it here.
Really it is showing the love that these two have for one another. Tori really does idolise Matthew. It is also showing how they also enjoy the very simple things in life....like covering themselves with a 'pile of stones'.
Well - if you have got this far you are doing very well. I will sign off for now. Hugs to you all and hope you are all well.

This next one I did for another challenge - again I can not remember the details, but I really like how it came out. The 'endure the elements' acetate tag is a play on words as Matthew loves his Element shoes.
Well - I have more to share - but will do it in another post. Thanks for checking these ones out. MWAH to you all.

The first thing that I wanted to do is share with you all my scrappy news and the news is BIG.
So, all in all a good couple of months scrapping wise, to put a smile on my face after not having so much luck job wise. To both Vicki and Janet (the boss lady at Scrapville), I hope that I can do you proud and put out something that you are happy to show off!
Now for some LOs....better show something huh?
This was for our first scrapwhispers game at Top50. So much fun. We are currently running another one and I suspect there will be another one after that is anyone is interested! Don't you love those alpha's?
This challenge set by Vicki in last months CC really put me WAY out of my comfort zone. I have never done anything like it. I tried the quilling after being totally inspired by Melinda. I think it is a kinda cute LO, the title reads "Fly like a bird"
There are a few other LOs that I have done, but I am not quite able to show them here. I hope you are all well. Hugs all round.

Well! Righteo! That was Miss T. having some fun on the computer. She was pretty proud of herself! I had just logged in when a friend arrived and this is what we got when I went to answer the door. Hmmmm - pretty profound if you ask me - she is certainly on a level that I can't reach!
Just thought I would say hi! It has been a while since I have been here and I thought it would be nice to show you all that yes - I am still alive!
We have officially moved into the new house and despite some minor teething pains, we are settling in quite nicely. Tori enjoyed visiting our horse neighbours yesterday and our kangaroo neighbours are also fun to spy on. We have missed the cows a bit as they seem to have been moved to another paddock - I am sure they will be back though!
As of two weeks ago - I am also now a 'lady of leisure'. Still trying to work out what that means. I seriously have not stopped for a second to catch my breath since resigning my position of 7 years. Oh! Yes! Hang on! I lie! I did watch Master Chef last night and the night before!
Scrapping wise I have actually been a bit quiet...but here is some of the stuff that I have done - mostly for the Top50 CC and monthly challenges last month!
Now you have all seen this photo before - but being inspired by the latest 'Alice in Wonderland' poster - this is what I came up with! I love how it turned out! BTW - this one actually won me a prize over at Top50. You gotta like that!
This next one was part of the monthly challenges and was set by guest DT member Judith.
Thanks Judith - awesome challenge. This is the first time I have used a banner and I love how it turned out.

Next is the first challenge for the May CC over at Top50, "Lights, Camera, Action". In this challenge we had to do a LO based on a movie poster of one of our favourite movies and it had to me smaller than 12 x12.
This is the poster I chose - from one of my all time favourite movies "The Slipper and The Rose". As a side note, if you are a romantic soul and don't mind singing and dancing in a movie, then this is the perfect movie for you. It is the story of Cinderella in a way you have never seen before. I recommend you grab a wine and a blanket, turn up the TV loud and be wisked away into a world of make believe. Anyways - I digress.
I was, of course, inspired by the LO of the poster and used it as a kind of sketch, but there are several other elements in the LO that are not quite so obvious. I tried masking around the photo and papers to imitate the look of the flourishes in the poster (OK - you can't really see it, but I tried none-the-less). The title was also inspired by the theme of the movie and the flowers by the title. This was a really quick LO and I really like how it turned out.
Well, that is it for tonight. I will have more to share by the end of the week I hope as the challenges for this months CC at Top50 are awesome - you should go check them out. I have done 1 and really want to get the other 3 done.
Hugs to everyone...MWAH

I have also just completed a LO for my LSS Scrapville. My LO isn't up yet, but will be soon. I really like how it came together.
Janet, the boss lady over at Scrapville, has some of the most amazing monthly kits, so if you are interested, go and check them out. This months kit is just awesome and I have already created one LO with it (which I can't show right now) and I already have a second LO planned for it!. If you are interested in this months kit, this LO by Melinda can be made with it. Don't you just adore it?
I almost forgot to mention - the Scrapbooking Top 50 is looking for a new DT member here. I know there are a few of you out there who would be perfect for the job, so why not give it a go.
Anyways - better go now...lots of things to do. Hugs to everyone.
