Yum LO and A Card

One of the challenges over at Challenge Heaven this month was to use the word 'Yum' in the title. I had the perfect photos to use and happened to be inspired a few nights ago by the multiple photo section of the latest Scrapbooking Memories. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong with my dimensional magic? It keeps cracking as it dries. :(

There was another card sketch as part of the challenges this month too, so I had to give it a go. The end design was NOTHING like I originally thought I'd go with, but pretty happy in the end. Plus, I got to use a new set of stamps that had previously just been sitting in my cupboard.

Playing with Seals and Dolphins

We had a long weekend this weekend, so Ben and I decided to head down to Coffs Harbour to celebrate our anniversary. Benny bought me a marine wildlife encounter so I got to swim with some seals! The Pet Porpoise Pool was so cool and interactive. Benny got to play catch with the dolphins before their show and we got free kisses. :)

We also spent some time at a great Butterfly House and Maze, The Clog Barn, the jetty and went past the Big Banana and the Big Prawn. It was fantastic to spend some time getting away from everything and re-connencting.

Mini Golf LO

I have had these photos out ready to be scrapped since I had them printed in 2006! I could never find the right colour scheme or LO though. I decided this month's sketch challenge over at Challenge Heaven was perfect. You can check out the sketch over at the site. I'm enjoying using a range of textures in my LO's at the moment. First time I've done strip journalling, but pretty happy with it.

I'm a winner! And birthday photos.

I won the A2Z Scraplets prize pack for May over at Challenge Heaven! Given I love chipboard, I'm very happy about this. :) Might give me the inspiration I need to start creating my entries for this month.

In non-scrapping or crafty new, it was my birthday on the 26th I went out to celebrate with some friends last night. We started with ten-pin bowling (I bowled 191 for the second game!) and finished with Tepanyki for dinner.

Donna, me and Sarah at bowling.

24th at Draculas LO

Yet another LO for Challenge Heaven. This one was created following the blind scrap instructions for the May cybercrop. The design we created is fantastic and all the LO's look amazing. I've been meaning to scrap this picture for quite a while (I turned 26 last week) and am very happy with the end result.

Honoured LO

My final layout for the May challenges over at Challenge Heaven. This one was for the Ebony and Ivory challenge which this month required you to pick black OR white and yellow and had to have polka dots. I had these photos printed last weekend and thought they would go perfectly with a yellow themed LO. The polka dots are painted as the border but stippling in white paint over punchinella, they turned out a lot messier than I had expected. Overall, the design is simple but I'm pretty happy with it. It also gave me the oportunity to use some paper and a journal tag I've had in my stash for ages.

This LO was published in Scrapbooking Memories Vol 14 No 5.
