A mini Tooot


Ok...my mini toot.....I'm a member of the DT for Arty Pants!!! The shop opened today and Mich and I went to check it out and spent some money....quite a bit of money. If you're in Vic, make the trip to Arty pants.....you'll love it. They have Foofala buttons!!! My favourite purchase of the day is a very nifty little tool which I can use to make scallopped cardstock or patterned paper. No more being stingy and saving my US bought scalloped Bazzill and tracing and having to painstakingly cut out the scallops. I'm in the middle of the layout...so very soon I will share my layout as well as this nifty little tool. *muaks* Shirls for sharing this with me.

This is my latest favourite layout of meeeeee. I did this over a week ago but wasn't able to share it because of course I have to let Arty Pants have first look and it's up in the shop. Love the Heidi Grace papers which Mich brought back from Singapore for me. The dotty paper is flocked....so nice and fuzzy and texturised. Why eyelets?? Because it was an eyelets challenge.......scrappers....take note...I am predicting that eyelets will make a comeback. LOL Heaps of stitching on this layout as well and I even added some beautiful dragonfly beads. And I absolutely adore the new Heidi Swapp ghost alphas....so big and they make such an impact on the layout.


This colourful layout was done for the HMITM Rainbow Brite challenge. Challenge was to use red, green, blue, yellow, orange and violet in a layout as well as two other embellishments (ribbons n buttons). I started on it quite late as I have had a fairly full on week PMS-ing. Enough said about that.....we don't need to go into the nasty nitty gritty details which will make me look like a BITCH. LOL

Ok...I took the photo early yesterday morning because we walked out of the house delighted to find that the front lawn was all frosted over. It was sooo cold that the dew had frozen. The lawn was white and it looked like it had been sprinkled with snow. The look of delight, wonder and awe on Jeromel's face was so hard to capture...but I managed this shot which I absolutely adore and I just had to scrap it.

oh...I do have other photos of him and the lawn.....will be scrapped when inspiration strikes. LOL
