OMG.......I have some amazing news that I am busting to share but unfortunately I need to hang on to that just a little longer......LOL
But I promise the second I am allowed to share, I will!

In the meantime I have a LO to share that I did for a little bit of fun.
My DS (15) found an old video tape that had broken and pulled all the tape out.
The 3 kids then had ages of fun wrapping themselves up in it and dragging it around the room....LOL.
The minute I took them photo's I knew I had to use this title!
(and of course spent the rest of the day singing it.....LOL)

Hope everybody has an awesome day!

Morning gorgeous people!
Would you believe I found a layout I forgot to upload here. Yep! Hopeless aren't I?
This was for a challenge where you had to add products for each of the letters in DESIGN TEAM.
Here was my take on this:

D = die-cut paper, distressing
E = eyelet punch, epoxy charm
S = staples, stars
I = ink, image (probably in photoshop too
G = grungeboard, glimmermist
N = noteworthy note, narrative (the book page)

T = transparency, tassel (beaded)
E = eyelets, evelope (handmade tiny one to the left of the pic)
A = alpha, acid free pen
M = metal butterfly, metal charm

Thanks for stopping

1 oversized photo
2 circles
3 PP's

I'm back again 'cause I wanted to share a little OTP / altered item that I made for my daughter Kiahna's room. I am still not sure whether to attach a ribbon and hang it on the door or put it on a little mini easel or something for her bedside table (all suggestions welcome....LOL).
This was a Kaiser wood door hanger but I made the door handle hole into a photo hole instead!

See you all again tomorrow!

Here's another layout for the monthly challenges over at Ready, Set, Scrap!
This one was for Lexie's White With 2 challenge.

I have been meaning to get in here long before this and show you a couple of layouts I have done for Friday's Cyber Crop at Ready,Set,Scrap!

However like many other people my mind has been on family and friends living in Victoria and the horrible devastation the fires have caused. My heart goes out to all the people affected by this and the communities they live in.
I think that as a small compensation Australia is still the lucky country and one bound my mateship! I know that Australia will rally around these people and help them as best they can.
A huge congratulations to the Firefighters from the CFA and other firies from across Australia who have gone to help. Your dedication and heroism has not gone unnoticed.....

So here are 2 layouts I have done for the Cyber Crop.

This one was for Shell's challenge...

and this one was for Rach's challenge...

I leave my thoughts with the people who have lost property or worse loved ones...

Last night was a HUGE one!
Everything went off with a bang last night at the Cyber Crop at Ready, Set, Scrap!
There was a lot of fun to be had there last night and the DT offered up 9 amazing challenges for everyone to get creative with!
I will admit to runnicg amok just a little bit (ok a lot!).....LOL
but it was a heap of fun. Thanks to everyone who came and joined in with all the antics.

Here is my example for my Cyber Crop Challenge.
I wanted everyone to get gooey, icky, mushy, corny and completely over the top with a Valentines's card. This was my way of adding a little more humour into the challenges!

Thanks for coming by, see you all
