... traced around 3 plates to make my circles of patterned paper.
Didn't come out that great as I scanned it and it was a bit bumpy and therefore shadowy.
Wow Marika ... love it - great way to get perfect circles with plates! Lovely colours too! Oh and you used the felt ... I must use some of mine!!
A great layout to remember the event - you are very good to take your children, I didn't get organised enough!

I am sending a layout I did at our scrap night last week, I thought Id send it in for the stamp challenge. II scraplifted it from Kerry Lynn Yeary out of the Scrapbook Trends magazine (Jan 2009), I loved it that much I bought the exact stamp and the photo was taken by Tiff (thanks :)
oh Karen this is so cute. Love the owls and also the colour that you have stamped them in (teal). The mix colours work so well on here too! Great job stamping!

hasn't been much on the blog lately just finished this one which I was pleased with how it came out.
ooh this looks great with the jumbo sized photo! What a very blustery day!! The red alphas totally pop on the green grass!
lovely and thanks for sharing your work Marika. Any pages welcome I say!
More news to come on this - soon!
In the past, the way we have opened registrations is by sending out a group email and blogging the details on here. This will be how details are circulated again this year.
I would like to ensure i have everyone's email address WHO IS INTERESTED in coming or getting retreat news as it breaks. Please note that this is NOT a registration to attend. I do have a list already but would like to double, triple check that you are on it.
If you are not on my mailing list for the retreat you might miss the breaking news! !
Last year our retreat was totally full, sold out, all seats taken within 2 days. In fact it was a frenzy of bookings in the first 24 hours with the bare minimum seats available on that second day.
Please ensure you are on my retreat email list by dropping me a quick line on firstname.lastname@example.org . I would hate anyone to miss out by not having your name down!
Details for our major March E2C retreat will be revealed soon........ and registrations will be very soon afterwards.
Don't miss out!
so i decided to scrap lift just to get the mojo and creative juices flowing! It worked for me so if you are feeling a bit scrap flat why not give it a go too?!
This was inspired and loosely lifted from the September Scrapbook Trends - a layout by Linda Sobolewski (page 65)
The journaling says :
We are lucky enough to have a wonderful bakery in our little town. It has the yummiest coffee in super, gigantic mugs.
Many lazy afternoons are spent in there with friends, sipping coffee, chatting and laughing.
I love my skim cappuccino so much i could have one 5 days a week!
I am definately going to scraplift again soon. I need a bomb under me to get motivated / inspired to scrap at the moment and it might just have to be a special scraplift bomb!

well after Fletch went to school, I made a coffee and sat on my front verandah. What a lovely way to start my day off (sorry Meredith.....).
PS the blog is doing great, fab LO's and photos to admire.
That sounds wonderful!!! Isn't coffee a wonderful thing!! Your scene looks very relaxing - good on you!!
My day off today (Ha! what's that??) and it's washing day.
So at 09:09 today I was washing.... and nearly fell over laughing when I saw the time left on the washing machine... it was not a set up I promise!! and sorry for the crap photo... embarrasing having this on the blog after Maryanne's stunner!
Good one Sandra ... aren't front loaders great although they do seem to take longer!

This card for Fathers Day started off with the painted hand print by Sean. Then remembering the stamp challenge there was no holding me back. The zig zag stamp is a bit faint but its there.
Happy Father's Day to all Dads. I hope they all get breakfast in bed.

Have just done Sues sketch - love them Sue they get me to do a page. I have also used pink and red which went well with this layout. I have a thing for those big ribbons at the moment love this stampin up one
ooh great shots Kylie. I really laughed at your dog all dressed up and your explaination 'half dog half kid'. Great 'creative' interpretation of the challenge!
A great half of Sean! Lovely clear photo Tiff. His eyes look amazing.
