Christmas LO

Here is my final LO I will be entering in the Gold Coast Show, just got it finished in time too since I need to hand these in tomorrow. I was starting to feel like all my LO's were looking a bit too much the same so decided to try a different style. This LO is inspired by the wonderful Leanne Pearce. I don't think I've got quite an much going on in the page as she does, but it's a good departure from my normal style. I really like the finished result of these sorts of pages but I struggle to busy them up when creating them.

LOTS of Kaisercraft products on this LO because I picked up a whole heap of embellishment packs from there Moorabin outlet store last time I was in Melbourne. Who could walk past 20 packs for $10? Especially when each pack normally retains for between $5 and $15. I don't care that they're 2 years old.

So, I'll be dropping off my entries tomorrow and the Show will be next weekend. I'll let you know if I win anything!

Bonnie and Thai Cooking LO's

Here are another two LO's I will be entering into the Gold Coast Show. This first one is Ben's dog Bonnie for the Pet category. I purchased the frame from Scrapmatts over a year ago and have just been holding onto it. I think it works really well with the little photos of her.

This second LO is for the 'Open' category so you can enter any theme. I chose to use photos relating to the Thai cooking class Ben and I took on our honeymoon. I love this page because of the orange, it's my favourite colour and it seems to be a big favourite of the Thai people too. The class was a lot of fun and has inspired Ben to cook a lot of curries now we have returned.

My Scrap Room and Happy Birthday LO.

 Some people are very clean scrappers and some people are disorganised scrappers. I have to admit that I am just a disaster when it comes to organising my scrapping. I'm constantly getting halfway through projects and then just putting them on the group behind my desk. Here are some examples:

My mum recently purchased an organisational trolley for me so I could have some more storage space. This lead to a pretty big re-arrange of the entire craft room, including the wardrobe to the right of these photos. So far I've managed to keep everything nice and clean. You can see the improvement:

For those of you who are just after the scrapbooking, here is the LO I created for the 'Celebration' category for the Gold Coast Show. I think it's almost there but seems to be missing something. The photos are from my 8th birthday so almost 20 years ago.
