2.5 days left - Stuck Sketches!

You still have 2.5 days left to get your Stuck Sketch layouts in before the end of the month. Have you had a go this month? If not, why not!!

Both sketches this month were great...check them out...

February 1st Stuck Sketch

My take, Splashing Good Time of my girls and their Daddy splashing it up on our QLD holiday last year.

A closeup of my journalling cluster, including bits & pieces from ALL my favourite handmade embellie makers - Purple Pumpkin, A Lil' Somethin' as well as Charms Creations!

More Purple Pumpkin goodness including a button, cabachon & the all purpose tickets that I just LOVE!

February 15th Stuck Sketch

My take, a page of Cooper playing Milo Cricket at the SCG using an awesome Making The Team Kit which is now ON SALE over at SFS. The girls at A Lil' Somethin' made a gorgeous matching embellie pack to go with this kit, I've used one of the buttons and a banner which just made my page.

A closeup of my title, the Lil' Somethin' banner and the quote which is so true for all of those extra curricular things my kidddies do - 'People Rarely Succeed Unless They Have Fun In What They're Doing'.

A closeup of my journalling & sticker cluster.

You've still got time - go and get your mojo un-STUCK with one of these awesome sketches!!!

Purple Pumpkin Sale TONIGHT!

The February Sale is on TONIGHT at 7pm over at the Purple Pumpkin Website! Lots of sneak peeks are already up on the blog and on Facebook, here are a couple of my faves....

Always love new colours in twine, must have them all!!!

Pirate buttons...

Army men, just perfect for those boy layouts!

Pink & Grey Kit, isn't it just divine....

THEN, once you've made your purchases over at Purple Pumpkin...why not sit down and scrap a layout for the Purple Pumpkin Sketch Challenge? You have until the end of the month to submit your layouts on the blog, so about five days to go...plenty of time!!

Here's the sketch...

And my take, using a gorgeous Amy Tangerine Kit from SFS but of course combining some gorgeous Purple Pumpkin products including tickets, doilies, buttons & cabachons.

See you at Purple Pumpkin at 7pm, sharp! You dont't want to miss out!!!

Thanks for visiting!

Blogger Catchup!

Yep, I've been slack. Well...actually I haven't...I've just been damn busy!!!!

Life is manic - between technical difficulties over on the Savvy website (that have now hopefully been resolved!), February kit release, dancing plus eisteddfod leadup (meaning extra practice with my girls!), working, exercise, spending time with my hubby when he isn't working...there isn't much spare time left!

Love my life, love every minute of it...just wish there were more hours in the day to fit in all the things I love doing. But I'll get there...what choice do we have, eh?!

Like I said, lots happening at Savvy including our February Kit Release. I have only managed to play with the She's Savvy Kit so far plus one layout from the We're Savvy, thankfully I had a crop last Saturday so that MADE me get something done! Otherwise, I probably wouldn't have managed any...

There are only 2 of the She's Savvy Kit left in the store, the kit looks like this and is only $40 this month as we were a little under our normal budget of $45.

I have done three layouts so far with this kit, and still plenty of product left for more.

My Sheepish Friend - my gorgeous friend Peta, on our way to Camp Mojo last year. There was this one time a few years ago that someone tried to criticise Peta by saying that her girls were sheep that just followed her and copied the way she scrapbooked....and Peta took it & ran with it! Now Peta's store Scrapbooking From Scratch has a sheep logo, we all have shirts embroidered with it, and we are all MORE than happy to be Peta's 'sheeples'. Love it!

Sugar Cubes - the little ones from the Entertainment Troupe at VLDA last year, they made such sweet little sugar cubes at the Mad Hatter's Tea Party.

That Look - a photo to die for taken by my friend Loz at Red Door Photography, I just love the way Bronte is looking up to her big sister, so sweet!

The We're Savvy Kit this month is just gorgeous, the colours just work so well together! This kit is only $25 and there is only 3 left in the store, so be quick.

Only one page done with this kit so far, on Tuesday when I get together with my mum & my besties (and anyone else who wants to join us!) for just a few hours during school time.

Royal Brides - Georgia, Bronte & Charlotte dressed up in Donna's girls flowergirl dresses, while watching the royal wedding of Wills & Kate while we were holidaying in Dalby last April. They were soooo funny!

And a closeup...

I have lots more to catch you up on in the way of scrapbooking layouts, and we'll get there...eventually!

In the meantime, if you're looking for some inspiration we are having our February Cybercrop over in the Scrapbook Savvy forum starting at 8pm (EST) TONIGHT!! We'd love to see you join us for some fun, and get you scrapping at the same time. Challenges will be revealed shortly after 8pm tonight, so be there or be square...or be mojo-less, your choice!! ;)))

See you soon! & thanks for visiting!
