Some Cards

 Today I have been over at Imaginarium  sharing a gate fold card and an easel card as well.
I used my favorite die as well as chipboard  when you get a knew toy you have a tendency to use it until you get a knew toy.

I have used my exciting knew Damask Garden collection from Meg's Garden
am having so much fun working with this collection
very beautiful

blue on blue

Well what a rush for the Scrap tournament I gave up all hope but because of the time frame turned out I still had some hours up my sleeve the challenge was Monochromatic I thought yes this is me but no white or black and that was what I found the hardest

I have used papers from the Damask Garden Collection over at Meg's Garden
with lots of lovely die cuts and punched flowers 
If I wasn't so rushed I think I would have enjoyed this Challenge a little more but however am pleased with the end result

A bit of Art Deco

good morning over here its very early thought I would get a chance to post before I get ready for work.
This morning I thought I would share a card and a layout both using the same design of Imaginarium chipboard but used in different ways, am loving how well this chipboard can work into your designs

 very art deco

 same design used as a border 
 the end was cut off  and tucked it in underneath the cardstock which gave some dimension

well off to start my day, but I think it may take one more coffee
still feeling half asleep

Within a 1000 steps from home

Hi my photos are about lets say 600 steps from home I counted 200 to the end of the street with difficulty kept losing count
This is of one of our local parks or walk way I took this photo at 8'0clock in the morning the temperature had already reached 33 degrees as we where expecting a high of 40 that day we are in the middle of our summer which is very extreme with two heat waves of over 40 degrees with maybe more to come
my 3 photos are of the same tree with depth of field
My papers are from Meg's Garden
this is my take on the first challenge of The supreme Scrap Tournament a "within a 1000 steps from your home "

I stressed a little about this but am happy with the end result fingers crossed I make it to the next round

happy new year

well it has been a few days since New Year but we have been a little snowed under, since then we have been busy with bathroom and toilet renovations
What I found amazing was how unsettling it was not to mention, not having a shower to use for at least two weeks in the middle of summer.
To start the New Year off I have made a desk top calender, this was a class today at Seriously Scrapbooking here in Adelaide, oh and did I mention how hot it has been 4 days of over 40 degrees something we are not used too, getting close to 50 degrees is way to hot.
Anyway back to my project
I have used papers from Meg's Garden Dreaming in the Meadow Collection
combined with some G45 

very bright and  lush for a hot summers day
well off to sit in front of the fan

Merry and safe Christmas

Merry Christmas and Happy, Healthy and safe New Year
As its Christmas eve and as per normal I am way behind, which I came to that realization 3 days ago, my house is a mess the backyard was looking nice until we had a wild and windy day two days ago, so that needs attention, I'll get there I thought, Ive got three days off to get this all done before Christmas, which quickly turned into two days off. But I have again been blessed with Christmas day off, but my daughter will be working on Christmas day thou, so thoughts and thanks go out to all the people and their families who are working on Christmas day, some one has to do it as not every thing stops on Christmas.
so time to share as I'm running out of time fast, thought I would share two pages one of my son then and now, how fast has time traveled.

 I have embraced project life it is great for left over pattern paper and Meg's pattern strip  and as you seem to take a lot of photos at Christmas time its perfect.
Something not so Christmas but it has helped me choose Christmas presents, as they get older it gets harder to find presents for them.

and no I did not get him bubble wrap although I would love too.
I have used
Imaginarium Chipboard
Papers from Meg's Garden
Top hat and Automobiles
  a sneak at a design I'm working on, stay tuned in the new year for that.
 papers from Tis Christmas time Collection
Now off to clean the house and get ready for a lovely family day tomorrow.
Sending lots of Christmas Cheer
and be Safe
