Busy girl!

Well, another Monday and I've had a really productive weekend. Most of last week was taken up by preparations for Mum's 60th birthday party which was on Saturday...I managed to get a mini album done for her as well as bind the quilt I'd made. So thats why I couldn't tell you what was next on my to-do-list...cause Mum reads my blog and I would've spoiled the surprise! LOL

So this is what I made her, you like?

First her quilt, which Georgie loved, can you tell?

Mum liked it too...

Then her mini album, it was for everyone to sign and leave birthday messages, with room for a couple of pics from the night.

And a last minute card I made on the day, inspired by this card over at Scrapping Outback.

Mum loved everything I made her, she is definitely worth all that time and effort!

Sunday I had Emma & Hayley over to scrap, and I had the most productive scrap day I've had in ages. Ended up with four LO's done by the time I went to bed last night! I'm scrapping off my to-do-list and slowly getting there.

The first page is for Chipboard School over at Scrapping Outback. This week we had to use something that WASN'T a scrapbooking product to cover our chipboard. I was a bit stumped...but finally decided to use the blue rag paper towel my hubby gets from work. As I was covering my chippie I was thinking to myself 'what the hell am I doing?' but I'm stoked with how it turned out in the end. I've wanted to do a page on this cutout cardstock for a while now, it was easier than I thought and is a great effect.

Next was for the challenge over at the 123 Challenge blog.

Then for White With 1, which was brown this month and the theme was Dads.

Last night I joined Mandy over at Scrap Therapy for a Blind Scrapping session. It was heaps of fun and I was absolutely stoked with my LO at the end. Thanks Mandy!

Off to playgroup this morning with the kids, looks like its a nicer day than yesterday, thank goodness. Then cleaning the house and some typing work this arvo. Hope everyone has a good week!
