I am still here....

I am still here, just busy with the house and all......sooooo close now. They are thinking in about 2 weeks we will be finally moving in. *waiting, waiting, waiting*. Firstly a pic from Easter that I took and am yet to scrap. Don't you love it? OK - maybe not - but I think it is adorable.
OK - enough of the over proud Mummy act. I also wanted to show you some stuff I have been doing. You may remember from my last post I was a guest DT at the Top50 site. My second LO in that role was based on the CC 'Reflections'. This was my example LO. I love how it turned out.

This next LO was to use a reflective material in the LO among other things. I used foil on the crown (just in case you hadn't noticed!). I am not overly thrilled with this LO, something is missing - but I don't hate it either.

Next we had to do a heritage based LO. I chose to scrap this photo of my Grandparents wedding. Still trying to work out why they used such a black backround? It makes my Grandfather and his Groomsman seem to disappear - but boy - don't the gals look great?
Unfortuantly - that was all I could manage for the crop, but I did manage to get the monthly challenges done....
This first one we had to use an imperfect photo and use a smaller size in our LO. I like how this turned out.
This next one had a few criteria, and I have met them all. I LOVE how this LO turned out.
These are some little embellies I made for the April Embellishment swap. I think they came up pretty good. The photo in this is a Redant original - one day when I become known for my amazing photography, you can tell everyone you knew me when......
Next are these adorable flowers that I made. How cute huh? If you go to the Top 50 site, you can find the link to how to make them.

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.
