Divalicious Feb 2010 Kit

Here's what I've created from the gorgeous February Divalicious Kit from Scrapbook Divas.
It's only $35 for a lovely mix of vintage inspired papers and embellishments along with some cute and pretty fresh goodies too. Be quick though because I think Michelle only has a few left, if she's not already sold out!!! And it's not quite February yet.

You can see more details of my LO's etc here ...

Hi everyone, just popping in to share some LO's. At the various sites I hang out on, there's been various versions of "use your stash" challenges and activities. I haven't kept up with them all unfortunately but I've been playing along with my own version LOL.

So here's some work, mostly using old stash, trying to whittle down that pile to justify new goodies LOL.

This LO of my husband is more about the words of the song which is on Lee Kernigan's new CD which he got for Christmas. It's a beautiful song and I'm sure it's written just for him LOL.
And yes I'm using up more old stash like these Kaiser pp's, Thickers and Thicker shapes and these cute little wooden buttons which you will find scattered throughout so many of my LO's over the years. My girlfriend found a box of them at a garage sale back when I first started seriously scrapping so she gave me a heap and finally, I seem to have used them up. Shame in a way cos a girl can never have enough buttons.

This LO is for my Product & Technique challenge over at Divas this month. The challenge was to create a LO (or other project) using lots of layering and at least 1 element that was 3 or more layers. My flower embellishment is in fact 8 layers in all!

Better late than never ... I dont think I put my Christmas LO's up when it was actually Christmas LOL. Silly me 'eh. This LO was for one of the 12 Days of Christmas over at (and thanks to the lovely Heike I was the lucky day 6 winner - I got 6 different festive scrapping goodies, all totally divine).

And finally, I had started this LO before we left for Christmas in Brisbane using the products in my 3 Angels Scrapping Guest DT kit, but didn't get to finish it til we got home. Everything except the flowers and bling is Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses range which was just gorgeous.

Tonight - Friday 22nd January - over at Divas we're having our "chat & scrap" evening. Log into the chatroom from 7:30pm AEDST for all the fun and join in Bingo and the Blind Scrap challenge too (RAK up for grabs).

I've finally got some LO's to show you but, rather embarassingly, they are not a great start to my DT duties, isn't that terrible. But hey, I'll subject you to them anyway. It can only get better from here right???

Anyway, there was method in the madness behind this first page - Nat's challenge of using 10 scraps of pp & c/s plus assorted alphas - so I did a crazy patchwork with my scraps (most of them I didn't even trim) whacked on a picture, some alphas and a few simple embellies.
It was actually a fun project.

This next LO is a scraplift (yep, and I'm supposed to be a DT member LOL) but the LO on the October Afternoon blog caught my eye so I just had to have a go. Besides, it was very quick and easy so it was a bonus. I used up some old American Crafts pp, some old and new tree embellies, plus some old foam thickers some of which I turned this way or that, or cut, to make the required letters.

Hopefully next time I'll have some much prettier eye candy for you. Thanks for looking anyway :)

Michelle, Natalie and I have been busy with lots of plans and ideas for Scrapbook Divas in 2010.

We've wasted no time and already kicked off with our monthly challenges - there will still be 4 challenges each month, with a $10 shop voucher for the winners, but here's how we'll be posting the challenges:

Another year ...*sigh*...

Best wishes to you all for the new year. May 2010 be an awesome year for us all.

Well, we are home from our trip to Brisbane for Christmas with my family & friends, and our NY camping trip at Glenbawn Dam. It rained almost every single day we were away and although the rain cut our camping trip short by a couple of days, we were all still excited to see so much wet stuff. Guess that's what happens when you haven't seen it for so long.
We got some rain around home, but not nearly as much as other places around the state. Still, we are hopeful of lots more to come ...

On the scrapping front I haven't done a thing since before I left. But I'm busting to get into it, especially with all the exciting things we're planning for Scrapbook Divas this year. Nat has already kicked off "Project 52/365" ... I hope you will check it out and join in.
First though I MUST get my house in some sort of respectable shape, it looks like a bomb hit it since we got home from holidays and my scrapping room is a disaster zone with Christmas stuff everywhere.

Anyway, stay tuned ... when I am a bit more organised I'll have lots of scrapping to share.
