Some scrapping to share

I've got quite a mix of different projects I recently completed for a variety of reasons. Hope you enjoy looking at them.

Some invites for Lily's party next month

Some easy cards using SU! stamps & my Cuttlebug

Love this L/O of random memories from 2008, I created it for Deb's challenge at 3AS for the GWI Cybercrop they held to raise funds for the Cancer Council

This little cupcake I made for Heike's challenege

& this little altered magnet was made from one of those daggy old promo magnets I had hanging on the fridge.......much prettier now & thanks for the challenge Melleny

I'm very proud of this one, my decorated styrofoam tree which I made for one of the "Twelve Weeks of Christmas" challenges running at 3AS.

This is an inchie card, also for a challenge at 3AS a little while ago

These are the 2 cards I made with Rachel Greig at her make & take stand at our LSS on World Cardmaking Day...........oh & for those of you who are interested & have read a few posts back, Rachel's great tip for tying ribbons & having them look great with very little effort is to tie the knot first using both ends of one piece of ribbon, then when you're happy with how the knot is sitting, snip the ribbon in the middle & attach to the to the card on the back. None of this mucking around with DS tape on the front of the card & trying to tie bows & knots using small pieces of ribbon.......for how simple a tip this is I can't believe I hadn't worked it out sooner!

& last but not least, this is what I created for my challenge at 3AS for the GWI challenges.

In other scrapping news, I've had another page accepted for publication in Scrapbook Creations, my 2nd acceptance with them, I think my first page should be out in either next month's or December's issue so looking forward to that as well

Will also be able to share all my L/Os & projects for the BOTS challenge at 3AS which is drawing to a conclusion with the overall winners being announce on their blog on Friday. Good luck to all the lovely ladies who took part, throughout the competition, the standard of work was just so inspiring for me during this whole competition.

Hope everyone's having a fabulous day & thanks for stopping by.

Happy Birthday Jayne

..........for those of you who don't know her, she manages her quite sizeable team of Stampin' Up! demonstrators known as the "Inklings". My upline, Fiona, is one of Jayne's downlines......just so you know where I fit in to the whole thing.

Anyway, Jayne is celebrating her birthday today, the 29th of October & Alana thought that it would be a lovely surprise to throw Jayne a virtual surprise party.

My contributions to the party are some melt in your mouth Chocolate Chip cookies

& some gorgeous little goody bags.........(non SU! but I think they are still pretty nice)

Happy Birthday Jayne, I hope you have a fantastic day!!!!!!!!

I'm going to try & link as many of the other party goers blogs as I can find in the next little while & then I have to get Lily off to school & canteen duty for the I will be back!

Thanks for the virtual invite Alana & I hope everyone enjoys blog party hopping.......go & check out what everyone else has brought along!!!

Happy World Card Making Day

I'll be back later to share a couple of creations I made today at my LSS that were make & takes using Rachel Greig's Darkroom Door Word & Filmstrips, even learnt a neat little ribbon tying trick........boy have I been doing it the hard way for far too long.......LOL!

Had a fun time thanks Rachel!

Hope you all managed to get some time to make some cards.

There's some great challenges set for today over at 3AS which I'll get to tomorrow. Also while you're over there check out the special Cancer Council Pink Cybercrop they've got going next weekend. I've been asked to set one of the challenges (#10 actually) so if you're interested in some great challenges, they are $2 each & all monies are going to a fantastic cause!

Will add links later.

Now off to get ready for a BBQ, we have friends arriving here shortly.

Thanks for stopping by!
