Few more layouts

This is the last week of BON'S 3 MONTH KIT SUBSCRIPTION COMP (phew)
The first part was to create a layout using handmade masks, holes and to tie something.

This tree design is inspired by Donna Downey's fabric range....this is the poor scrapper's version using bubble wrap and acrylic paint.

the holes (yes, very original LOL)

GLAM-mermist!! I am falling in love with this stuff. Easier to clean than paint!

BON'S SCRAPS CYBERCROP - This was Bon's Colour Challenge
Photo had to be with a friend...this is my angel.

This challenge required you to assemble your own kit with certain bits and then create a layout.

Stole this nifty idea of running paper through your DYMO labeller from a class at Scrapboutique ;)

4 ASD Kids Charity Event


We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to be part of The Classic Week at Sanctuary Cove. The Classic Week brings together corporate, celebrity and family guests for a series of fun sporting, entertainment and leisure events to raise money for charity. This year we are excited to announce that we are supporting Mat Rogers’ and Chloe Maxwell’s charity initiative, 4 ASD Kids.

This will be the very first event of many for 4 ASD Kids designed to raise money to support families with ASD children to receive the treatment that could provide them with the best chance of a normal life. The event will also help to raise awareness of Autism.

Event Schedule includes:

18-20 December, 2009

· Mat Rogers Celebrity Golf Day – Hope Island Golf Club

· Chloe Maxwell & Friends Ladies brunch at ioesco – this is an exciting addition to the Classic Weekend… delicious cuisine, champagne, fashion showcase, skincare advice, jewelry displays and more

· Classic Charity Gala – we will again have an exciting range of items and experience for auction with proceeds benefiting 4 ASD Kids.

· Sanctuary Cove Community Christmas Concert – Free family event in aid of 4 ASD Kids

Live entertainment over the weekend includes Dave Faulkner (Hoodoo Gurus), Mark Gable (Choirboys), Melinda Schneider (multi award winning country music artist and songwriter), Paulini, Danny Faifai, Casey Barnes, the Australian Girls Choir, tenor Lachlan Baker and much, much more.

You, your friends and families are invited to enjoy the entire weekend or simply attend a single event. Information brochures for the events can be downloaded at . If you are unable to join in we would be grateful if you could pass this information onto anyone who may like to support it.

In any way, in every way, this condition is touching us all.

if I had AIR CON...

If I had air conditioning
I could be so much more productive.

Is this a good enough reason to install it.....

Or a good enough reason NOT to install it!!
I think SIESTA TIME from noon till 3pm to recharge and just prepare for BOYS GONE HOME WILD!! sounds awesome.

Thank you one and ALL. Your friendship and generosity just astounds me most days, but particularly this week. Wow.

here's how it will work {ah, fingers crossed *snort*}

Here are my banking details

M & G Scott
(if you wish to pay by cheque, please email for postal address)

for access to Bon's Scraps Online Class section in her forum.

You will need to deposit your $10 donation and let me know, in which ever method you choose, that you have deposited the money and what code you've used to identify yourself and what username you've used for Bon's Scraps.

I will inform Bon who will give you access to the closed classroom.


The next couple of days, I will post sneaks of the layout and of course a rough guide to materials needed.

one colour
many colours
mix it up....GO CRAZY


Just grab some bits from an existing kit or run to your local scrap shop (or online shop) and treat yourself.....GO deserve it. Tell them I sent you!!

Then tell all your friends what I'm doing here and why. I want the whole world in on this...well, maybe, but I'll aim high then see where I land.

I have some goodies from the event organisers coming my way, so some freebies from me to you in store.


I will hold another class if you can't make it on 3rd December.
I really need the class practice LOL.

And as always

I have booked in a little ME TIME on Monday...yipeeeee!!

Can you join Me?

On Thursday 3rd December we will be celebrating!!

I will be holding an online scrapbooking class at 7.30pm (Brisbane time), hosted by the forever generous Bon Johnstone of BON'S SCRAPS.

All you need to do is REGISTER in the FORUM with Bon's Scraps prior to the 3rd December - it's that easy! You will have access to the classroom and a live forum chat with me and the other scrappers participating.
Cost of the class will be $10 (EFT details to follow) with all proceeds going towards the equipment needed at Rainer's school in their newly acquired SENSORY ROOM.

Don't fret.
I am setting up a separate blog/ning community where I will run yet another online class at a later date.

So, what is a SENSORY ROOM?
Well, we all have them, but don't realise. It's a place we retreat to when the world is just a tad bit overwhelming. For most of us, a little "me" time is all we need to recharge and reinvigorate. (My Sensory Room is my Scrap Table)

For children (and adults) with SENSORY PROCESSING DISORDERS (whether it's autism, aspergers, ADHD, depression or anxiety), we need specially selected items to stimulate some senses and decrease others - depending on the need of the child.
Here are some examples of a variety of Sensory Rooms around the world, and the types of furniture and toys on the Wish List.

HAMMOCKS!! lots and lots of hammocks
We have 2 already at home LOL. One for the kids and one for the adults.

So I hope you can join in the fun and help out some precious children at the same time.
