The color room....

 I got a chance to scrap last night and I have been meaning to get back to The color room and do someof their beautiful color pallette challenges so thats what I did last night,,,,
It took me ages to get it how I wanted and its still not what I imagined but I think Im happy with the results!!! I pulled out SO much stuff while doing this I kept changing my mind on the style I wanted to do!!!
I also did this one for the DEC sketch at BONS but I have only just registered over there and I cant upload until they activate my account, but thought I would have a go anyway!!

And also I tried to take a better picture of my Get Picky LO but because of the misting its curled and it keeps leaving a shadow so here it is anyway,.......
I have used two of the allocated photo  squares for some journalling strips. It is called Random facts and its just a few answers to some basic favourite questions I asked the kids on the day I was creating. Thought it would be fun to do this occasionally to see how their interests change as they get older.
Anyway thanks for stopping by,
Eb xx

I have added knots in my fabric and between each of my banners....also in my twine! It turned out to be busier than I had imagined but I was having so much fun I just kept adding! Once again raided my scrap box!!! Used up some sticker alphas too!!
I have also done this months challenge for Get Picky but am not happy with the photo so much try again tomorrow.

Im Back.....

Ok I can also show you my first LO for "show us your stuff"
The next challenge for this month is to scrap about a milestone, or about a goal in your life. You can check it out here. You also need to use a handmad eembellie. Can you spot mine??? Yep Mums cool crochet flowers  and Nellie G buttons!!! So here is my take on the challenge. It is about the lack of photos of myself. I hate photos of me including the ones on this LO but whilelooking back through this years photos these are a couple from a SMALL handful of myself! Its terrible I from now year you will see more pics of me!
Thanks again.Eb xx

Tad Excited!!!!!

You may remember how excited I was earlier this year when I was selected to create samples for Bella Blvd for their CHA summer releases???!!!! WELL I have been asked again to create samples for the up the next CHA winter using theirnext releases!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! VERY excited!!!!!! Its such a privilege as only a few of the past and present artistas are selected and I LOVE Stephs products!!! Yippeee!!!! Sorry.....just had to do it!!!!
Ok on the scrappy front. I have been scrapping a little bit not huge amounts. I feel a littlelost actually as my DT commitmnets are very small at the moment. Though its nice scrapping for myself. I will search after christmasI think for some more DT gigs but for now am happy creating LOs like these.......
This is a photo of Will on his 7th birthday!
And this one was fun...just using up some scraps and bits and pieces which I am doing a lot of lately! I am discovering some cool scraps in my scrap box!It feels good to use up some stuff!!!

And this one cos it depicts Maya at the moment. She LOVES singing and dancing!!! I caught her with her microphone singing to PiNKs "So what"!!!!
Very funny!!!!!Again just scraps of paper from my scrap box!

Wow! I love this time of year but boy there is always so much to do!!!!! Throw in the mix applying for a job and trying to write a resume after 7 years out of the work force!!!!!!SCARY after solong but its what I want to get back into when the kids are both at school.I have applied for a kindergarten assistants job...its only 11 hours per week which is just perfect at the moment so fingers crossed!!!
Anyway I have been scrapping........
These two were just because Layouts. Most of my DT commitments are finished now and I havent applied for anything else at the moment which is giving me much more time to scrap for me!!!

And this one is for the December challenge over at Scrap the girls. There were three different color combos to choose from
Well seeing as my favourite color is RED I created this layout......

And a closeup.....

I also created this layout and joinedin at White with one.
The criteria for December was to use white (obviously) and Grey with some masking.
Here is my layout.I found this really challenging because as you can probably tell I love to use bright, contrasting colors ......LOL!!! But I challenged myself and this is the result!
And a closeup....

I have also been making felt christmas trees for myself and Will's teachers which I learnt to do on Kim Archers christmas workshop. I will take some piccies and share next time.
