Hi All for those of you who have been just as excited about this as I have I would like to now reveal what I have in store for you this month! This is just a one-off to remember a loved one and just to end 2009 on a high note and appreciate what we all have in life. It is fast approaching the anniversary of our dear friend and fellow scrapping buddy Dee's passing.

It must feature predominantly the colours: pink (in representation of breast cancer) blue (in representation of prostate cancer) yellow (in representation of daffodil day)

*It must include this quote by Dee: "I chose life- because it is glorious!"- Dee Lewthwaithe

AS A BONUS: for those who have a blog-- if you mention this on your blog (post a comment here so i know) you will go in the draw for a prize as well- easy peasy!

I have generously received some prize packs from both Tam Partridge and Krissy Christie which will go to the winners @ the conclusion of the comp..... Have fun guys, and can't wait to see what you come up with!! Love Kate xox

first up we have two gorgeous pages from sandy...the first is still waiting for her photo..hehehehe....she has to reprint it a little smaller than she first planned but i wanted to show it off to you cause i just LOVE it!!! the beading and doodling on this layout just looks awesome! a little close up piccie of some of the beading featured on both of sandy's layouts this month...
lots and lots cutting here girls but it is so worth it...the layering of the gorgeous black flowers and bead work looks great... the next three gorgeous layouts were designed by krissy and of course are wonderful as always! i love the mix of shapes on this one and the little birds....
krissy has cleverly combined big brads and rub-ons to embellish this great layout.....
and for the final page krissy has included her famous "fussy cutting" of some gorgeous flowers and vines to set off this page beautifully.... we are all going to have a great time this month re-creating these gorgeous layouts girls...THANK YOU SO MUCH for all your hard work...

the miracle continues!!

hehehe..i don't believe i just finished another 3 quick pages and two of them are examples for the september challenges for "live to scrap" which will go on the blog here is sort of a preview i guess...hahaha.... first up we have a page of the girls scrapping at my class last sunday using a pagemaps sketch and the gorgeous "lemonade" kit from scrapbooking from scratch...i have also added some prima flowers and kaiser bling to it.....this kit is absolutely gorgeous....
i am so in LOVE with these Websters pages, storyteller just have to get some for your stash girls....they are awesome!!! i love the font and the colours are beautiful....the sheet comes with one large and three small letter sets.....they are great value for money and of course you can get them in some of Peta's kits at scrapbooking from scratch

next up i have used "me likey" papers from sass lass to do the kids school photos .....i have also mounted some of the cutouts to add a bit of dimension...
i stuck with the same concept for both the layouts just used slightly different cut outs on each one.....all the pages are quick ones but at least the mojo has started to flow a little again.....mmmm might have to get back to the scrap table i think....gotta strike while the irons hot!!!! hahahahahaha...

friday night fun

so how is everyone's weekend going??? mine got off to a great start last night ...i scrapped 3 layouts and 2 quick cards...the mojo got flowing again finally with the help of some awesome sketches! i am sorry about the pics ..i don't seem to be able to get away from the shadows today..i'll try and get new ones soon.... for this first layout i used the monthly sketch from SFS and kaiser "offshore" papers.......i really loved how it came together...the sketch is awesome ...great job Kate! should check it out and you never know you might earn yourself a $15 SFS voucher...

my little "beach bum" here was created using Krissy's awesome sketch for the CIS sketch blog...i turned it to the side and used rub-ons where a couple of strips were....the pic doesn't really show off the beautiful bright colours of the "snorkel" range but you get the idea!...that bum of Eb's is always hanging out god love her..hahahaha....

this layout using the bo bunny range "mango luau" was created using a tutorial on the bo bunny blog....lots of 3d layers on this one...i have added a couple of extra bits as well.....

a very quick fishy card for my FIL again using the snorkel range of papers and some dotted bazzill...

this last card was a real quick one for merv from ebony using some grease monkey paper from bo bunny.....ok so thats my quick share for today...hopefully i will have some more for you before the weekends out.....have a great one!!

go krissy!!!

woohoo our gorgeous Krissy is a featured scrapper in this month's scrapbooking memories magazine so if you can, make sure you check it out.....way to go girl..what an awesome thing for you and so deserved too!! CONGRATULATIONS honey...."mwah"

full view!

for our august classes this month we focused on baby layouts using products from SEI......and here is what we came up with.....the first three layouts are the gorgeous work of the wonderful Krissy Christie.....they are just sooooooo gorgeous...i loved doing boy versions of krissy's layouts are shown below also.....but first Krissy's..... "precious baby girl"

"sweet dreams little one"

"happy little lady"

i created a double page layout but the photo turned out awful so i have the pages shown here separately...just keep in mind they go together.....this first one is the left hand side page

this the the right hand side page for my "sweet dreams little one" double page layout....i kept this layout very simple but added creative elements by using puff elements stickers, the cuttlebug and shapabilities die cuts.....

just a little close up of the cuttlebug pieces and the patterned papers we used.....

the three layouts above are the boy versions of Krissy's gorgeous designs as i mentioned before....

if you were unable to attend classes this month and would like to create these gorgeous pages drop me an email cause i still have a few packs available for sale with complete instructions and templates......

thanks for to you soon
