what i wore...

all ready???!!!...

i really must try harder i think...
pretty much then same as my usual attire when i have to go out for non-important duties...jeans (the weather has changed again & its a little cool???), singlet & a 3/4ish light top - which i love!
no make-up or jewellery...kinda boring but that's me most days ;0)

then for some extra glamour i put on my apron & made a cake!! & then promptly dropped it on the bench when i was getting it out of the tin!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! look in the container...see the raggedy bit on the end...aaaauuuurrrggghhh!!!

passion for fashion...

is on over at ScrapBoutique & is into Week 4 already but here is my week 3 page...

the theme was CONSERVATIVE (feminine/demure) so taking inspiration from the description given....pastel colours, small prints, simple accessories & rounded lines (just some) I came up with this LO.

I used a pic of Miss T & A taken in Vegas last year.


it is Wednesday isn't it???...

school holidays make the days all run together....

its what i wore Wednesday & let me say this

nothing to flash in the fashion stakes here today!!

rivers tshirt - one of their $6 specials!! & trackies!!

i do have new dark hair after a trip to the hairdressers though :0)

Mum will not like it but i'm really liking it dark & got rid of that horrid blonde bit in the side...

passion for fashion...

is on over at ScrapBoutique & i joined in for fun!

here week 1 LO...
the theme was Haute Couture.

& you have to translate that to a scrap page!!! i used some pp frills, punched cirlce for layers, spiral flowers & a unique photo from Valentines day a few years back - some heart coral i found on the beach & a note from darling S on my shopping list!

Week 2 is Dramatic...

yeah...not sure about this one?? & you also had to use a quote from a movie.

I used one from Footloose ' I thought this was a party...let's dance.' Footloose was actually the song that was playing when i took this photo while i was out with some friends!

WARNING...moaning mood...

on What i wore Wednesday!! all i can say this week...
had to go out - feeling miserable - couldn't be bothered really..
so this is what i wore & i reflects my mood perfectly..

black basic shirt from Jeanswest - the best place to buy them i've found.

comfy grey pants - don't know where they are from but i do remember them originally be $60 & i got them for $10!!

& my trusty black flats from Big W which i love, also a gorgeous green bangle that came from Diva...i originally bought as a b'day pressie for a friend & i liked it for myself - terrible i know!!

you can see some other lovely ladies that joined in over at Mardi's blog.



August chall @ 123 was to use...
the word WHAT, the colour BLACK & MULTIPHOTOS
here's what i did...

the colour BLACK as my accent to the bright colours - matted my photos in black CS, black (cinder) glimmermist splatters, black rub-on journal block & black thread on the banner.

the word WHAT is in my journalling - its was the first word on a rub-on journal block from an old Kaiser pack.

for the MULTIPHOTOS i used some pics that A had taken in the pool with Miss T's new camera - i love them they are very cool...much like him he tells me!!!

Kraft It Up...

have a gorgeous sketch to follow this month for their August KIU chall...
here's what i did

the original sketch is a multi-photo sketch but the pics that i had taken at the time of this photo weren't that great. I was in a hurry to go out & snapped a few quick shots..
so i used 1 big photo of S & I & then

i decided to use tiny little proof prints of the other ones which were the view from our room

at the Casino on the Gold Coast!!

What a FABULOUS weekend we had!!

aren't i lucky...

gorgeous flowers & yummy chocolates from some wonderful ladies that come to my class at Passion for Paper.

Thank-you so very much, its been a ball!!



another week gone by over at Scrapz.Biz

week 5...scrap whats in your handbag.

so i based my LO around a set of keys that have been in my bag for 3-4years now!! they are for my LSS, Passion for Paper, where i show the ladies how to make cards - i don't teach them anything, just show them stuff :0) - well its a sad week...P4P is closing its doors after 7years!!

you had to use something you found in your handbag -paper napkin i made into a ruffle.

something shiny - thickers, metallic pin, glitter on flower.

a shop card or credit card - i printed a picture of a credit card & punched butterflies out & also put some of the card under my embellies.
