Lovin' holidays...

I'm one of those Mum's that LOVE school holidays, no bus to catch, no school lunches to make, and 2 happy kids, gotta love that :) Hope you had a lovely Easter, I know we did, we had a really nice brunch on the Sunday with 2 of my brothers, their partners and kids, my Mum and Dad, and my Aunty, lots of yummy food, lots of laughs, and a great egg hunt, I even got some scrapping in too, woo, hoo. The first thing I have to show is the Waterfall Mini-album I made for my Mother-in-Law, with some photo's of the kids, it is really simple to do, but really effective. I got the instructions over at Scrapbook Crazy
All the papers and embellishments I've used are from the April Designer Kit and Add-on over at Country Papercraft, the kit features gorgeous Basic Grey Marakesh papers and loads of other yummy bits. This next layout is also done using this kit.

And finally, this layout I did at the CPC retreat a few weeks ago, I used sketch #11 from 
Inspired Blueprints as my inspiration. I've used some Scenic Route, and Cosmo Cricket papers, and I really love the bright feel.

Well, that's it for today, Mum and I are off the cubby (cafe) for morning tea...LOL..apparently there is some yummy food to be had, should be interesting :)

Kaiser Acrylic album...

Hi, just a quick post today, but I just wanted to share the clear album I did last weekend at the Country Papercraft retreat. Marg took the class on the Sunday morning, and I have to say that I really love how it turned I made it for Georgia, hence the bright and oh so colourful theme, and she REALLY loved it :) It is featured on the CPC blog at the moment, so you can see a few bigger photo's over there. Anyway that's it for today, enjoy the rest of your weekend, we are off to the beach tomorrow, woo, hoo, should be fun. x

Some cool music.....

Just wanted to share this totally fantastic video, by the super talented Lisa Hannigan. I really love her music, and love watching this video, and thought you might like a look too, nothing really to do with Scrapping, except that it really makes me want to do lots of pop-ups. The song is from her latest album "Sea Sew", and I think Lisa's brother and another lady are responsible for the books, aren't they just amazing?. LOVE the tune too, enjoy.

Happy Hump Day...

Wow, it's Wednesday aleady, and April Fools day, this year is positively flying. First up, you just have to check out the Inspired Blueprints blog, April is Sketch Bonanza Month, which means they will have up 8 sketches this month, very cool. Each of us on the Inspiration Team had to do a layout from which a sketch has been done, and mine is the first up being Sketch #13.  The layout you see below is the layout I've done, using Basic Grey and Crate papers, and lots of groovy bits from this months sponsor Gauche Alchemy, we were all lucky enough to have a little parcel of goodies turn up in the mail from them, and had to incorporate them into our layouts for the month. So make sure to check out the Inspired Blueprints blog, there will be bucket loads of sketches and inspiration. I've also been busy with Country Papercraft, and returned from the fantastic retreat that Marg held in the shop on the weekend. I taught a layout and card class and,  got a bit of scrapping done of my own as well, it was a really great weekend. These are 2 of the layouts I completed, and they have just gone out in the latest CPC Newsletter, the second one features some of the yummyness from the new April Designer Kit and Add-on, the last few months have sold out within a couple of days, so get on over to the shop and check it out if you are in the need for a gorgeous kit. 
Well that's all for today, hope the rest of your week is fantastic and I'll post some more layouts and cards over the next couple of days. Bye x
