Yay for F-play ......I got a few good 'O' layouts..... ;P
My O layouts were my FK Awards layouts ....so relieved that they are done and sent in. I am a tad annoyed with myself for deciding to enter the comp so late and then with mojo deserting me, and my printer playing up big time, I had a week to do 5 great layouts....they were very varied and overall I am happy with the way they turned out. I've had so many people tell me that I should enter and that I should at least 'try'....so i tried. I don't expect to win as it is my first big comp. Ok...let's move on....
I finished Jeromel's ABC album....and even decorated the little window in his 8x8 ki memories album.....one completed project. The little man is just over the moon that it is finished. Now what am I going to do for my F-play layouts??? I don't think the two teenagers will like to have ABC albums!!! Any ideas???
Yesterday, we went to pick up our new printer ....a Canon Pixma ip4200...love it heaps!!! While researching for a new printer...I discovered that while most of us will print on good paper...we don't give a second thought about the inks.....we will stick with original inks but don't really know how long it lasts. There is a difference gals...check it out. I ended up with a Canon as it suits our budget and needs....and even across their huge range of printers....only SOME are able to use the ichroma inks which will last 100 years. So scrapers....keep inks in mind...do you research before you splurge on a printer. We scrap to preserve those memories and will easily spend at least $5 on a layout.....we surely want those photos to last more than 20 years. Oh and how much was my printer? $128....lol....I'm not kidding...brand new!!!
Once I printed off my small photos... I sat down and tackled my Arty Pants DT Product challenge.......we got given Urban Lily sugar cube kits which were just sooo much fun to work with and very fast to do. I think they're great as pressies or even as Christmas tree decorations. Let your imagination run wild!!!
LOL......I'm still on a roll.......so tackled my EDM layouts....I hadn't done any....a few more days till the end of the month...panic....I have a confession....I am not a huge fan of sassafras lass. OK....maybe that was exaggerating it a bit....I'm NOT a fan of Sassafras Lass at all.....AT ALL. But the two layouts were ok....just ok....one more to do and I will be done with my EDM September layouts...so gotta be thankful for that.
Scrappers....Arty Pants have a fabulous challenge on every month to win a $20 voucher. This month's challenge is just a sketch challenge...nice and easy. Come on and enter.....coz you know what you could buy with your win? Arty Pants have the Fancy Pants biggest chipboards in stock!!! And they have Foofala buttons....and they have albums...they have heaps of stuff and they have free shipping for orders over $50...........with the new shop opening.....Jodie hasn't updated their online shop.....but you can always call them and ask for something if you are after something in particular.
Ok...that's it....toodles and take care!!
