On my desk this week...


I have my design team work on the go. I was so lucky that my dear sister had just sent me this beautiful photo of her daughter with Elmo, taken on their holiday in Australia, when my kit arrived. Perfect timing! My papers contained pinks and Elmo is red- but my page worked out okay just the same. The photo scrapped, will be in the Scrap booking by Design Gallery very soon, keep an eye out for it at the following link ...
Also on my desk I have my puzzle piece's waiting to be decorated for the Puzzle swap over at Glamour girls
I have one only posted away, one almost finished and 7 still to go!
On Wednesday I played at being Santa and sent my goodies away for the Secret Santa swap over at Scrapbook studio
I had so much fun gathering scrapping treasures to post, the hard part was that the total cost was to be $15, and oh I gathered so much more that I had to keep some myself! How sad!! Had a wee bit of trouble with the choc'y disappearing as well... no it wasn't the children, I hid them in my scrap room! Bad choice!
I took part in my first ever challenge at NZ Dares, see the Layout below titled 'Love Looks This Sweet' and I must have had beginners luck as I was chosen to do the challenge two weeks from now. That was a buzz! Check out the new dare just up today http://www.nzdares.blogspot.com/
I would like to try this one also, another awesome prise is up for grabs. All I need are more hours in my day!
Do be sure to join in my challenge here...http://designteam.typepad.com/my_weblog/2008/11/have-you-taken-the-timeto-think-about-how-you-are-going-to-endyour-2008-scrapbook-album---i-thought-it-might-be-nice-to-en.html The prize is a set of Alcohol Inks and Blending solution and I may just add a little something extra.
Wishing all my readers a safe and happy weekend. xx

You have been doing lots of scrapping - well done. And well done on being the NZ Dares next Guest designer. I'm too busy to do too many challenges right now

Thanks Jenny. I have just finished my design team work! Now I have nine fabric ATC's to do and 7 puzzle pieces to go! Is there light at the end of the tunnel???

My Scrapping

Here is my finished latest painting

Here is my finished latest painting
This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
