A little fun

My dear cyber friend Toni has put out the challenge to record some of our 'Deadly Sins'. So here are some of mine.

1. SLOTH -- how do you relax?
Either with a hot cup of coffee, surrounded by silence, sitting on my big butt in front of the computer, surfing the net. or Scrapping to the wee hours of the morning un-interrupted.

2. GLUTTONY -- what can't you get enough of, even though it's bad for you?
Turkish Delight, I know I shouldn't, but what is a girl to do!

3. GREED -- what do you get greedy for?
My 'ME' time, if I don't get some every now and then, I get a bit nasty.

4. ENVY -- what makes you green?
Full time Stay at home Mum's, I wish!

5. LUST -- what does it for you?
Definitely my man!! Just would like it more often hehehe!!

6. PRIDE -- what are you inordinately proud of?
That I have survived all of the tough times and I am still here, changed, but here.

7. WRATH -- what makes you angry?
People who can not drive within the speed limit, fast or slow, they drive me NUTS!!!

Thanks Toni, that was good therapy!!

Scrapdango May kit reveal

Both of the kits available this month are gorgeous!!

May Sugar kit contains the beautiful collection from Bo Bunny 'Sophie'






May Spice kit features the cool collection from Bella Blvd 'Man of the House'
Love this range, just perfect to show off my 2 favourite boys!!





Here is what I created from the collection,

Family Guy


All Mine


Round and Round the garden


Also appearing in this month's spice kit are the ever popular chipboard flags.
Father's Day not too far away in the USA. So I thought I would create a banner from my flags.


I have one more page to reveal with this month's kit sketch on May 20th and there is still some pieces left over, so hopefully I can put together a few cards soon.

May reveal @ Scrapbook Savvy

I am always very lucky when it comes to the product I receive from Sarah at Scrapbook Savvy and this month was certainly no exception.
I was so excited when I spotted Teresa Collins 'Mr & Mrs' collection in my parcel. It is like Sarah can read my mind, scary some-one can know you so well, purely over the internet.

Have you seen this collection?
If you do nothing else this week, you MUST check these papers out!!
A gorgeous mix of cream, black and white, it is so stunning and elegant!
And yes it has been created as a wedding collection, but it is so much more.
The patterns are simple yet classical, making for easy mix and matching and will suit many topics.

Here is what I have created so far:

Gone (shy)


Your the man


The happy couple

May kits @ Scrapbook Savvy

I definitely wish I had some spare money this month. The kits put together by Sara and Sarah are just amazing. And once again, sadly, one of the kits 'We're Savvy' has already sold out. Not at all surprised with the beautiful bright colours from We R Memory Keepers.

These kits are usually available the 1st of each month, so pop Scrapbook Savvy in your favourites to check them out.

'He's Savvy' features papers from Basic Grey awesome collection Max & Whiskers and some gorgeous co-ordinating pieces from My Mind's Eye.


'She's Savvy' has a gorgeous mix of papers from a number of different companies and they all blend perfectly together.


'We're Savvy' was jampacked with bright and cheery papers from WRMK Hello Sunshine.
But as I said before, these walk out the door in record numbers.
So this is purely to tease you...................Sorry!


May 'All about me' Challenge @ Savvy

I tried to get a little bit creative with this month's challenge and have scrapped my page without any photos.

The topic this month is 'What does your name mean?'.

You can get a lot of information by googling your names, and like me, you will find some of it very close to your true character and the rest of it pretty crazy.
But they say take the good with the bad.
I also included some stuff about the month I was born and what that means.
Ask you family if they remember why your name was chosen.

Scrap a page about the meaning of your name, photos are optional.

Upload your entries to the appropriate gallery before Midnight May 31st to be in the running for some Savvy dollars.

Hope you will head over to Scrapbook Savvy to check this month's fabulous challenges out.

What does it mean



May Kraft It Up Challenge

This month's challenge may require one to get a little dirty.
So the faint hearted need not apply!

Nah just kidding!

You need to use KRAFT and you must create your OWN PAPER, whether it is your background paper (Kraft) or you opt to create some patterned paper to use on your page. This must be created by stamping, misting, masking or painting and you can use any medium inks, glimmermist, texture paints, gel mediums, paints, crackle paints etc...

I have some fun playing with a few different Prima stamps and then a quick spray of glimmermist to finish off.

Head over to Kraft It Up to check out the amazing work from the other CT girls.

Say Cheese
