Bad Girl!!!!

Well, actually we've all been sick here. So instead of blogging I've just been managing to scrap and nap and clean and dispense medication. I think everyone in the whole nation is feeling it, so 'nuff said.

I has been a busy girl, and thanks Tanya for tagging me....NOT!! I'll get that one out of the way! You know I love you Tanya - heehee.


Yes, I officially RAAAAAWWWWWK!!!! And at my age, I have to say THANK YOU TANYA!!!!
So, 5 girlies I think RAWK are Charm, Fran T, Jodi, Relsi and Bec
And to the scrapping....because the fact that I was in bed for 3 days last week, hallucinating that my hands were on fire, really isn't that interesting!!!!

Finally finished the layout from Ngaire Bartlam's class at Inkredible. Thanks Ngai for being so nice and not giving me too much shit because it's taken me soooooo long.
I think it looks cool. Fancy that, me and pink!!


Trying to keep up with Charm and her August Art Journal. I used the photo that I altered in Photoshop. This is the "What is my Star Sign" layout.


I finally began Lilly's Wedding Album. All her photos are 5x7 but she doesn't want 12x12 layouts. Luckily she's letting me cut, crop and alter the photos as much as I want. Here's the first page, but not necessarily the front page. Used a Becky Fleck sketch and sent it to Fireside Crafts for their Monthly Comp. Have a look at the entries. Mine's all squishy...haha!! I hope to win but they're all sooooo good.


Scrap Therapy had their Cyber Crop so long ago, I've forgotten when - LOL!! Actually, it was only on the 3rd but managed to get all 3 done. Deadline was the Monday night which was great. Sometimes you need another day to get it all done.

Challenge One - to find inspiration (ie, scraplift LOL) from the gallery

Challenge Two - find inspiration from mag submissions

Challenge Three - find inspiration from one of Jodi's sketches


I also did a mock 123 challenge there when I first "outed" myself. I just can't reveal my "serious" side enough LOL.



And Natalie has just announced the first 4 Design Team spots. The last spot is up for grabs from the original applicants. We have to come up with some cool stuff for the next 4 weeks. Wish me luck!!!

Bon's Monthly Layout comp for July was about "the love of your life". I'm still using Nikala O'Brien's photos from last August. I cropped this one of Michael and used the lyrics from The Killers.



And just finished the Button Challenge....and I stress CHALLENGE....at Bon's. I couldn't help but use photos of the beautiful Meg. Ain't she sweet???


I call this a slow couple of weeks for scrapping. Haven't done half of what I want to accomplish, but I'm pacing myself. Don't want those hallucinations to wind up on a layout PMSL!!!!

BE STRONG....
