'Twas The Night Before Christmas

Today is Christmas Tree Day!

Today is also my angel girl's anniversary so I have gone through my own personal grieving routine today and me and the kids are now looking forward t
o putting the Christmas Tree up tonight.
Same day every year. I love traditions :)

Thought I would quickly post a b
ook I finally got around to making. I have wanted to do this book for ages and thought now that I have grandchildren it's the perfect time to start another tradition. So we will be reading this book every Christmas Eve which has the original "'Twas The Night Before Christmas" poem inside .

I created a hybrid book this time using elements from the gorgeous Cara Mia Designz Kit "Glitzy Christmas". I printed the digi pages out on white Bazzill and stuck them to an old Kaiser wood calendar that I hadn't got around to using (oops!)
Then I used some ribbon and Basic Grey Chipboard Letters covered with lots of lovely glitter on the front.

And last but not least a layout that I did ages ago and totally forgot to share!
Just a layout about me....

Hope everyone has a brilliant weekend.

OCD's? Who me?

Happy Friday everybody!
I had some stuff to show you today and then I realised I couldn't!
I just looked at them and seen that some of the projects I have completed are for Christmas pressies and I know they read my blog so I can't put them up here and one was picked up for publication by Scrapbooking Memories. So now I just have this one layout to show you.

I have had the title for this in my head forever!
I just wasn't sure how to scrap the page. Then I walked past my pile of cleaning stuff the other day and grabbed the camera and this is what I ended up with.

Products Used: Bazzill - Kraft : Recycled Prima Packaging : Prima - Say It In Crystals : Prima - Flutter Vines : Bella - Chipz : Scenic Route - Chipboard : Bazzill - Chips : Gesso : Tattered Angels - Glimmer Mist : Copic Markers : My2Angels - Felt Heart : Queen & Co. - Felt : Making Memories - Tiny Alphas

Hope everybody has a BRILLIANT weekend.
The weather is supposed to be perfect here!

Very quick post today :)

I made it to round 3 of the Embellish This Challenge Competition at Scrap N Craft With T and was so loving the challenge! That was until Mojo did a runner on
I really struggled to get this done and was so disappointed because I LOVED the challenge.
Anyways, here are the details of the Round 3 challenge:


My Challenge for you this week, goes hand in hand with a big event on the Australian Calendar...the Melbourne Cup. It's always a big event that gets the whole nation involved. Seeing there's always a 1st, 2nd and challenge is all about 3's! So, the first part of your challenge is to use the Melbourne Cup logo as your inspiration and create a layout using the colours of teal, hot pink, black and white. Bright and very funky!! NOTE: You can use tiny hints of other colours but the main focus is on this colour scheme.

The second part of the Challenge is to create an interesting background, and it must have 3 elements to it. For example, my background has painting, sewing and a weaved paper background. You can do whatever you like here, but it MUST have 3 parts to it!!

As you know, the Races are all about fashion, feathers and bling, so guess what the third part of the challenge is about??
You MUST use: Fabric, Feathers and Bling on your layout somewhere.

As an BONUS part of this challenge and sticking with the theme for our "Embellish This" competition...You MUST create a handmade embellishment out of fabric.
It can be anything at all. There are plenty of tutorials on the web, showing you how to make various embellishments. Let your mind run wild...I can't wait to see what you create!! Good luck everyone!

And here was my take on the challenge.

Products Used: Bazzill : Kaiser - PP : Basic Grey - PP : Prima - Say It In Crystals Frame : Acrylic Paint : Gel Pens : Machine Stitching : Feathers : Felt : Tulle : Kaiser Pearls : Prima - Flower : Kaiser - Flowers : Lace

Thanks for calling in. Catch you soon :)
