Scrapbook Memories Masters No 1

Oh so busy around here but I thought it was probably time to post my Masters entries here for the world to see. I was very happy with my entry, I found I was creatively challenged and made the most of it!! I was absolutely stoked to get into the Top 50 and am also stoked to have got a HM for my mystery item.

Greatest Achievement

This is one is about marriage. Daz & I have been married for 12 years now and I think that is a fantastic achievement! We have had our ups and downs but all in all we are pretty rock solid.

I love this photo of us, it is lovely and romantic, (those of you who know Daryl will know it is a rarity!!)

I made this little book to contain the journalling. The cover is felt which I glued to bazil and then ran thru the cuttlebug to emboss it. It came out really well.

There are so many things in this layout I love like the handmade organza flowers, doves, nest, book, butterfly, lace etc. I had heaps of fun making it, it took hours and in the end I had to do it twice! as I spilt a cup of coffee all over it when it was almost complete. I didn't give up though, I came home and found all the bits and started again, luckily my scrappy friend Vikki had some of the papers as they were old stock.

It is taking ages to load pics tonight so I will show you all some more tomorrow.
Hope you like the pics

Get Wrecked!!

One lovely scrap night 8 friends were all sitting around laughing about old techniques and how our scrap styles have evolved and grown since we started scrapping. From this chatter came Scrapwrecks!

Scrapwrecks is a new challenge blog thats just for FUN. Somewhere we can post those old, "ready for renovation" layouts and techniques and have a good laugh. And who know maybe digging out those old layouts will give us all some more inspiration to use old techniques in a brand new way!

For January there is a RAK prize that I have donated, its full of chipboard, flowers, felt, brads and other yummy things, so get on over to Scrapwrecks, have a look at the challenge for January and join in the fun.

Don't forget to tell all your friends so they can join in too!!!
