Pick your Bits

DSO's fantastic designers have come up with a STUNNING new Colab called Forever and After. But instead of buying a huge kit with only a small portion that suits your scrapping style, they have decided to break the kit up by designer and you get to choose exactly which portion or portions you want. Each portion is priced between $1 and $2.25. You can view all the bits in Forever and After here.

I was lucky enough to get to play with both Kim B's and her sister Gaye (GS Creations) portions and it's full of whimsy and love with stunning papers, beautiful worn mats, realistic elements and the CUTEST Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater elements.

I made this LO of Jayden

And then turned it into a QP to share with you all.

Dents in my Chair

Last night we were in hysterics. I got up from my pc to go and make some coffee and Corné noticed these indentations from my bum bones in my chair. I'm spending so much time in front of the pc that I'm leaving impressions. I think the foam in the seat of my old chair is finally giving in. But I love that chair so much.

I'm busy on some crazy extractions for some new goodies and I'm very excited to get it done. I'm hoping to be able to reveal and release it all next week.

My kit Letter from the Heart is available at $3.00 until tomorrow midnight and then it will go to full price.

And Kim B has the most stunning new kit Passions Blush available. I did this LO of my friends Cindy-Lee and Rudolph's wedding photos.

And of course I have a little freebie for you as well. It's a double page QP using Passions Blush.

Letter from the Heart

Today I have a lot of pimping to do!!!!

And I'm running late as I went back to sleep after I completed a few things this morning. Friends of mine own a pub and they're a bit short staffed at the moment, so I'm standing in as bar lady Thursdays and Saturdays for the late shift. OMG I woke up this morning after a 10 hour stint yesterday and I thought my feet were having their own war. I took some pain killers and went right back to sleep. It is a lot of fun though, but I think some of the patrons were having "head" problems today. I'm not called the shooter queen for nothing. LOL. I came up with some wierd combinations again.

OK straight to the pimping. As most of you probably know, Kim B has a new Overlay Grab Bag for sale and I'm proud to say I was a tiny bit of inspiration for 1 of the products in the bag.

I was busy on my first PU kit for sale, Letter from the Heart, and was stuck for more papers and of course my cry for help went out to my favourite designer and Kim came up with the most beautiful overlays. Thanks Kimmie, I REALLY APPRECIATE it.

So without further ado, here's the previews. It contains 17 papers, some of them totally new created by me.

It has 54 elements. The whole idea was really to create a Christmas kit in my favourite Christmas tree colours, but I got so carried away with colecting items for the kit that I went past the Christmas deadline and then ended up making a "Valentine's" kit inspired by some papers my SIL hand made.


It's available in my store here for a limited time for $3.00.

Here's some LO's






Thank you ladies, your LO's are gorgeous.

And of course I have a little freebie for you. It has 2 papers and 2 cluster frames.

Marvelous Days

The holidays are over and everyone has gone back to work and the schools are re-opening tomorrow and I'm enjoying empty shopping centres, not having to stand in queues for minor things and quiet in the neighbourhood. Total bliss.

Don't get me wrong. I love the holidays, but I have a problem with crowds that seem to be going nowhere. I went to buy fresh produce today and was done in 15 minutes. Last week or the week before, it would have taken at least an hour.

And we're having the most beautiful weather at the moment, which makes me think of everyone in Europe and the UK having such a cold winter. I wish I could send you some warmth and sunshine.

Jayden is growing so fast. Can you believe she was 6 months on the 2nd? It's like yesterday this precious bundle came into our lives. Just before Christmas we took her to a professional photographer for some photos and I really have to get my behind into gear and scrap them. Here's one of the photos.

I have been very busy with PSP and CS4 (think it's going to take me 5 years to get to know it) and all will be revealed soon, but today I have a Commercial Use Chinese Fan for you. It's partially opaque and I've left it rather big for ease of resizing.

You can get it here. Standard digital scrapbook etiquette applies.

Chat soon.

OH BOY!!!! It has taken me days to recover!!!! LOL. I hope you all had a blast like I did.

All photographic evidence has been destroyed, plus I would have had an over 18 age restriction to my blog. Not that our part was that wild, but one of the props was a bit outrageous. We spent the evening with friends at Theo's house and he and Gloudine always come up with some very interesting ideas.

This time they decided they wanted a "human" food platter. You know the kind they show on tv where a model lays down with the food displayed on her. We were just not comfortable eating off a real person and a store manequin could not be found. So these crazies decided to use a blow up doll. LOL. We were in hysterics. They proved that she had been purchased earlier on the day and that she'd been properly sterilized too. We named her Pamela and once the food was eaten, we dressed her in some of Gloudine's clothes and she became the dancing partner for any of the guys that didn't have a partner. Pamela turned out to be the most popular girl at the party.

Their latest shot was also vodka and pomegranate cordial. OMW that stuff is the devil's brew. It's rather more-ish and when I looked again I had definitely had too much. At midnight everyone was dunked in the pool. We partied the entire night and only got home at 6 a.m. And I got visitors on Saturday that stayed the entire day.

I'm only now feeling completely recovered.

Yesterday I woke up and had my design mojo back. So I've been spending the past 2 days creating a new kit that will be released soon and with Kim B's DSO Colour Challenge. These colours are just so pretty.

And she has this beautiful posting bonus if you participate in the challenge. All the rules are listed on the blog. So hop on over and see how you can earn her beatiful freebie plus many others that will be posted during the month.

I started a really adult mini and then hated it and decided to do a soft and gentle baby mini.

You can get it here.

Please leave a comment and please send your friends here to collect the freebie.

And I'm looking forward to sharing many new frebies with you during the year.
