I created the Scrap Journal last Tuesday night while I had a scrap night with Mele and Mandy at Mele's. Quick night, I was there about 1.5 hours and was able to complete my Scrap Journal. Jamiee from TSE created one for a Prize for October Tribute Challenge, and I so fell in love with the idea and concept that I had to make one for myself. This is where I can record the Magazines I have bought, their challenges, ideas I have, Sketches I want to scrap, Challenges that I have to enter and complete by a set date, Titles of Layouts I come up with, Quotes I love that can be scrapped, Friends contact names, email addresses, usernames, DOB, etc, and Passwords - All my usernames and passwords in Cyberworld. Always forget, I have Ebay's, Scrapbook Memories Scrap Room, TSE, Shop'n'Crop, My Blog, MSN, and who knows what others! Scary stuff really! Anyway, wanted to thank Jaimee so so much for her inspiration and idea of a Scrap Journal, What a useful tool to have in my world! Though thinking about changing the glitter flourish to a wooden flourish as I am not liking how the Kindy Glitz turned out green over the black paint. Just have to find a nice wooden flourish first!
On Saturday I created two Christmas Layouts! Was so so please with the results and the layouts couldn't have come up any nicer with out the use of Kaisercrafts Christmas paper range. They are to die for and a must if you are a scrapper. Their range is gorgeous. I bought mine from The Scrapbook establishment - http://www.thescrapbookestablishment.com.au/. Naughty or Nice is from a sketch and 'C' is scraplifted from Lou Spiden. Asked her permission of course, her layout was published in this months Scrapbook Creations, Page 98 (No 47 Vol 7 No 8). Thanks Lou, I just fell in love with this layout when I saw it and was doubley wrapped when I read your name, thankgod you are a fellow TSEr.
Sunday Dad, I and my two boys drove to Wollongong to pick up my mum from my Aunties. We reminisced and I drooled all over Aunty Trishes old photo's of mum and her family when they were younger. Amazing! Just love looking at our heritage and history! Can't wait to have these photo's restored so I can add them to mum and dads tribute album. Have some photo's from my Aunty Chrissy (Dad's sister) too of Dad's family. Really cool looking at my grandparents and great grandparents on their wedding day. These photo's are already with a photographer being restored. Just have to put mum's photo's in now! Too exciting!
Anyway that's it for me! Today is Monday, Swimming lesson day for the boys, then work work and more paperwork at Dad's! So have a great day all and enjoy this beautiful sunshine!
