pages, no pictures....

I'm reconnected - Yipppeee!!!!!!

I have started doing the 52 weeks of me over at Savvy and although I am a little behind I am trying to catch up and have decided to do my pages so the boys will be able to pick it up later and say that's who my Mum was/is....
I am going to include things like pet peeves,likes,fears,jobs I have had, childhood memories etc
Got any other ideas - leave me some and I will pick a person at random on friday to send out a little RAK.

Here's what I have come up with so far....2 pages no photos - not going to be like that all year but I think I am going to mix it up a bit!Leave some love and let me know what you think - better still why not try a page without pictures for yourself and leave me a link - would love to see what you come up with...Melxx

Come on Down....

Gee whiz...remember those days - the Price is Right and was it Terps? that said that????

Anyway Congrats DebiJ your on a roll - love your Chrissy LO and thanks for playing along - will pop a surprise int he post tomorrow for you - Mwah

Here is another Chrissy LO I have just done - My Christmas Wish....

This started out being a LO for the CC over at LSBS this weekend but I got off track - it was Belle's challenge to use three "found " things so I used a tag(behind the title), a bit of packaging from a chipboard thingy I had ( the photo corner on the top left) and the gold ticket on to the right of the pic which was from the Myer store display from the year Corey was born - while Corey was at RPA Mum, Dad and I took Jayden to the Christmas display for some time out and he loved it they had little train rides and all so the lady gave him a ticket and My Mum asked for one for Corey as he was in hospital....a little nostalgic just like Christmas:)

Anyway CONGRATS Debi and keep a lookout for more giveaways through the year

Cristmas trees - giveaway

My boys loved decorating the tree this year-so much so they would rearrange it daily lol so to scrap this special memory I decided to make my "own" tree - here is how I did it :)

I used a cheap diecut tree I got from Kmart last year, I put it on top of the c/stock inked around the edges and then traced with a felt pen - then I cut a piece of PP for the bucket and used ribbon, felt and brads to decorate :)

So simple and easy peasy so have you scrapped anything from Christmas yet??? If so leave me a link by Friday next week and I will pick out at random a lucky prize and pop it in the post.

Twenty Ten:)

I can't believe I missed blogging Xmas and the New year - hope every got on Santa's noice list and had a totally awesome kick off to the New Year!

I can't believe it's 10 years since 2000 - amazing and so much has happened....

Anywhoo - this year for me is about focusing on being a better me...getting healthier, enjoying life more, cherishing those around me and exploring what may be.... no resolutions so won't be scrapping them as I never stick to them but if I aim to focus on the above I am sure I will become a better Moi!

I ahve been up to a little scrapping so will share - I finished all 52 pick up challenges over at LSBS and so proud I finished - a bit of a rush to the finish line so here is the last few things I made. A huge Congrats to Debij who won the prize and to all the gals who completed all challenges and those who had a go!

This was a chaleenge from Helen J to make a note holder- simple and quick but totally gorgoues!

This was the last challenge from Belle - you had to use at least 14 ribbons and staples - yep they are all there :) The gorgeous Janine Kay took this pic - all thoguh it's not all smiles it's my boys at the moment and I love it:)
This was a challenge from Tracey to use a templete to make your own embellishment - I used a flkower template frrom the web...another lovely pic of my oldies from Janine:)
This was the last challenge from Belle all about ditressing and I totally was distressed ripping one of Corey's painting up but how cool does it look:) this is is taken by Cariisa Little from Bella Piccolo photography.

Tracy set a mixed media challenge and I did this little heart - will be going postal to a friend shortly :) the heart was made by another scrapper froma vintage swap I did on wicked prioncess site - I don't know who did it but it's perfect - Mwah :)
So I hope you all an an amazing year filled with all you want it to be :)
