I'm trying to experiment with 6 x 4 photos at the moment. Who knows, might even do some layouts with more than one photo (but no promises lol!)

I have been lucky enough to have been contacted by Cheryl Mezzetti, the Design Team Co-Ordinator for Creative Imaginations, to do all the Creative Imaginations work for Australia! Wowsers!
I will be working with Jane from Ocean2Outback, the wholesalers who supply CI to Australia and doing all their DT work!
Very exciting for me and I'm looking forward to getting stuck into it!
Here's a gorgeous set I've done for Mother's Day.

Each player starts with 7 random facts/habits about themselves. People who are tagged need to write on their own blog about their seven things, as well as these rules. At the end of your blog, you need to choose 7 people to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them that they have been tagged and to read your blog!
1. I can't stand getting my hands wet (ie. cleaning up the "sink salad" in the sink, etc., etc.- blaah!) and will often use tongs or a fork or something to avoid having them wet!
2. I think I may be addicted to caffiene!
3. I hardly ever go out - I do the school runs, etc., and then come home. To me going out during the day is a completely waste of good "home" time.
4. I would rather have my fingernails removed than spend the day "shopping" (except for scrapbooking supplies). Can't stand it! If I have a definite reason to do it, I don't mind it, but to just go shopping I find completely boring.
5. I am fiercely loyal and protective of my family and friends.
6. I have been on medication for depression/anxiety for over ten years. When I was pregnant with the twins, I was so depressed I was suicidal. If it wasn't for medication, my mother and my psychiatrist, I don't think I would be here today.
7. I tend to "overthink" things.
There...only 7 from me (otherwise you'll all think I'm too wierd lol!).
Now, I tag Sarah, Marni, Lusi, Lu, Michelle, Louise and Fran!

Anyway, I'm happy with the outcome - the other one has been selected for publication in Scrapbook Creations so you'll see that later in the year.
How 'bout those gorgeous subjects I had - I was lucky enough to spend Easter Sunday with Kelly and her family and I took a couple of happy snaps of her gorgeous girls!
Secondly, a HUGE thank you for Sandra Gerdes for doing my banner - woo hoo!! I am so excited to have one and Sandra's done a fabulous job! In fact, I shall now officially dub her "Sandra, Queen of the Banners" if I may! Now if I can just work out how to get my original title off I'll be a happy woman!
Anyway, that's it for now - catch up later on the week!

I really wish I was one of those bloggers that wrote these incredibly entertaining posts with fabulous links for everyone to look at.....but alas, I'm afraid my rather dull life certainly does not lend itself to this!
On the homefront, my baby turned 13 on Saturday - a teenager - how about that?!?!? It really does seem like he should still be a newborn! Apart from the usual adolescent and hormonal adjustments and attitude (!) I'm so proud of my baby! He really is growing into a fine young man.
Scrapping wise, I'm still struggling! I've done a pink boy layout which is totally not my style but, I must admit, I have some fondness for it! Hope you like it too - I know its not great, but, hell, I've done it lol!
Hopefully something more to report later in the week!

Have at look at these AMAZING new products coming in from Magistical Memories for CHA later this week. Aren't they superb and sooooo much fun?
If you're interested, one of the designers, Susan Rodriguez is giving away a full set for a RAK. Believe me, its really worth having!
I've had a little play and have come up with this altered mannequin!

Some days you just really KNOW you are completely blessed! This morning was one of those days - the little boys were out on their trampoline and I was lucky enough to have perfect lighting, etc., etc.
I'm not too flash at Photoshop so excuse the "dodgy" montage - but gosh - aren't those little guys gorgeous!
Oh well, off to do some scrapping now!
Have a great day everyone!

Actually, at times I find this scrapbooking adventure quite unbelievable. I have only been scrapping for a little over a year and have already had so many exciting things happen to me. I have been published several times, I have been lucky enough to be on some Design Teams and, most importantly, I have formed some incredible friendships through this amazing art.
These are people who I simply could not imagine life without now. Even though I have not even met some of them, they have helped make my life fuller. A special "thankyou" for your friendships to Marni, Sarah, Susan, Dawn and Kelly. I consider myself so lucky to have you in my life.

I was absolutely speechless as their team is AMAZING!!! The divine (and wicked) Susan Johannes (**waving**) is joining me on the team so, yet again, we are partners in crime lol!
They have to most stunning stamps, acrylics, chipboard and collage papers. I really can't wait to get my hands on them! I know working with Helene and Devorah will be just incredible and I am so looking forward to learning more of my craft through their Team. Wow. Wow. Wow.!
In other news, I actually scrapped today which was fun.
Lately, I have become a bit obsessed with PhotoShop - this really is becoming all consuming and unfortunately, due to my addictive personality (did I say that?!?!?), I have been either glued to the 'puter, scrapping, reading about scrapping and, to be honest, not done alot around the house!
Oh well, as long as we're fed, I'm sure I'll find the children under the piles of folding!!!
Till next time XXXXJill

A few very exciting things happening at Scrapapple this week. Its really worthwhile having a peek when you get a moment. If you register on the forum and pop into the Question of the Day, you will get an entry into a terrific prize! (A Valentine's Day Pamper Hamper - and believe me, its AMAZING). Also a great opportunity to meet everyone on the forum - what a fabulous lot of girls we're getting there now!
