Dream Street Papers

I've been lucky enough to get my hands on some of the new CHA release of the Dream Street papers. They're gorgeous. I know that they are coming in VERY soon at Scrapapple so, if you want to get hold of some, check in there! Here's a layout of Mr Levi, the oh, so cool.

I've got the little boys home today - high temps, bad cough, etc., etc., so don't know if I'll get alot done today....but I'll try!

Also, I've been lucky enough to be asked to join the team at How Dare You? If you haven't heard of How Dare You before, what planet have you been living on lol?

Truly, if you want a challenge and some inspiration take a trip over there and have a good look through the site - the talent is INCREDIBLE!!!

What a Cootie!

Do you ever go thru stages where you tend to photograph one child more than another?

I like to think that I don't, but its simply not true!
At the moment, Levi is just so photogenic and I can't seem to miss a good shot with him. A couple of months ago it was Jonah! And Zane, well let me say that its almost impossible to get a photo of him (very uncool for teenagers to be photographed!).

Here's one I took yesterday of Levi with his teddy bear!
By the way, thankyou to everyone who pops so nice to get to know everyone isn't it?!?!?

Time Waster.....

My name is Jill and I'm a time waster! There I said it.

I was talking to the fabulous (and fellow time-waster) Susan Johannes this morning and I really have to come to accept that I'm possible the worst time management person that ever existed! I spend way too much time on this bl@@dy computer and way too little time doing other things!

So I shall upload a layout I did this morning and hop off here for now (until the next time lol!).

Hope everyone's having a great day!

Still Plodding Along....

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!

A Layout Share

I have had the worst "Scraponstipation" for the last couple of weeks and, honestly, I've hardly produced anything. The couple of things I had produced, I can't show! Grrr!

Any tips for getting myself "moving" again would be greatly appreciated!

I can show you, however, my latest DT project for Buzz and Bloom! Its not my finest work lol but I do love the colours (looking for positives here!). I've used the gorgeous chipboard "Paisley Flowers" on this one - they're soooo cute. These products should be available in your LSS soon! If not, just ask your LSS to get them in for you - too easy!

SC Issue 39

I don't know you've seen this issue of Scrapbook Creations yet, but WOWSERS! It really is awesome.

I LOVE the article on Mail Art by Vivian Bonder and Jeni O'Connor's Reality Bites article had me in tears. I haven't even been game to start scrapping some of those "personal" things as be honest, I wouldn't know when to start. Might have to set myself a challenge to do this one day.

Anyway, here's my layouts from the mag. "A Moment Captured" was credited to someone else though lol! Oh well, I hope I get my layout back and get paid for it!

I'm Back!!!!

Well that didn't last for long did it? Actually I think I may have been kidding myself as I'm pretty sure I spent almost as much time blog surfing as usual lol!

Last week all three boys started school - Zane in Year 8 (my big highschool boy), Levi and Jonah in Prep - too cute! I just have to organise myself with the starting times, picking up times, etc. as there is a 40 minute difference so it required two trips - aaargh!

Got some big news last week too - I was one of the runners up in the Scrapbook Creations Cover Competition! Wowsers. Here's my layout! What a hoot!
Now, in other news, my extremely talented friend, Sarah van Wijck, won the International Competition to design a card for Oprah W and Ellen de G. Can you believe the talent of this girl? She just amazes me! Have a look here.
Anyway, that's all for now - when I think of something else to write, I'll be back!
