Purple Pumpkin December Challenge

Well...what do you think of my take on the Purple Pumpkin sketch for December??? I had so much fun creating this - my mojo just popped in for a visit today!

I used Glitz papers {I just love this new range!} and then added the PP Cherry XL button and the spotty button as well. The lace flower is from Purple Pumpkin too!

Just to let you know - my 2013 goal is to blog at least once a week!!! {Let's see how long it lasts!} Wish me luck!

Purple Pumpkin September Sketch Challenge

Here is my layout for the Purple Pumpkin September Sketch Challenge! I had so much fun using all the gorgeous bits and pieces...the twine, the cloud button, the felt clouds and the new washi tape....I think I have a little bit of an addiction with 72 different tapes in my personal collection and more to come!

The pic is of my eldest girl, Dacynta (aka Felicity {don't ask!}) at the gorgeous Thompson's Beach at Victoria Point earlier this year.

Hope you like it!

Oh dear.....

Has it really been that long? No it can't have been? Seriously? Surely not....

Oh well, let's forget the past and move on forward! I have been super busy lately, but hopefully things will settle down a little bit and I can stick to the schedule that I have drawn up for myself to follow.

Stick 'n' Giggle has just recovered from yet another retreat YAY! It was so much fun! We went back to the gorgeous Shearwater Resort at Caloundra. 27 ladies (and 2 gents) joined me in what was to be a weekend of fun, giggles and laughs! The Saturday night was a total barrell of fun...we had our fancy dress night with the theme being animals (pics coming soon!) and we had our cent auction again this time raising funds for the RSPCA QLD! You will not believe it - we raised $710.00! I was over the moon. And when I went to deliver the cheque in person, I just had to play with some of the little surrended puppies...Miss Bella and my mummy came with me too! So much fun...

I have done a couple of layouts, but I can't share them just yet! You will have to wait another couple of days! post one for today, done and dusted! Blog post two will follow!

Purple Pumpkin February

Well I finally managed to finish my layout for the Purple Pumpkin February Challenge....What do you think?
I used some of the tickets I purchased back in January, the gorgeous Big Owl button, the spotty pink button and some pink and white twine all from Purple Pumpkin, to embellish this layout! I used the twine to wrap around the organza ribbon that I cut and frayed to replicate the streamers on Bella's new Dora Bike.
Some of the other embellishments are from Handmade Halo and these are the gorgeous resin roses and the beautiful crystal flower. The doileys I dyed myself.
Hope you like it! Happy Scrapping! xo

Congratulations Tracey! Your layout is simply stunning! So you are the January winner! As for the other four of you - I am going to send you a little something as well because I really appreciate your support and that you played along for January!
