TSE April Sketch Challenge!

I finally got around to giving the wonderful Ruth Clarke's Sketch Challenge a go this month over at The Scrapbook Establishment. This is Ruthy's Sketch for this month. And this is what I did with Ruthy's Sketch. I just had to scrap this photo it is too cute not to!

Also it is Cybercrop time again over at The Scrapbook Establishment. It starts tonight and finishes next weekend (Sunday I think). I love TSE Cybercrop time it definitely gets the creative mojo working again! Thanks for looking and no doubt I will be back again with more in the next few days when I have done my Cybercrop Challenges.

2 more new pages!

Firstly Thankyou Everyone on all of the Congratulaions I have been recieving.
Next thing,I have been busy once again Scrapbooking. But this time for a change I have been feeling like doing some of my old photos from my childhood. Some of the photos are embarrassing but oh well you get that don't you!!!
This first layout I love. I have used some of the new Sassafras Lass Vintage Yummy papers and also a new Prima flower (gotta love them!). The photo is of me when I was about 16 months old (so about the same age as Lily is now) This next page is a photo from when I did my Debutate Ball back in 1996. I was 16 and you know when I showed a few friends the page they all commented how I still look the same and that I haven't changed at all. I'm not sure if that is a good thing or not I know I get sick of people at work thinking that I'm only 20 when I'm really not that far off 30.(well next year I will be 30. But close enough to it for me)
Thanks for looking everyone and all of your comments I love reading them.
So Thankyou Everyone.

I have some big news!!!

Hi everyone I have some really big news that I am so excited about I am busting at the seams with excitement I even did Lily's little happy jig when I got the news.

OMG I still can't believe it and I probably shouldn't be saying anything yet but I just can't wait to tell everyone one of my Layout submissions to a Scrapbooking Magazine has been accepted and they want to publish my Page. I won't say who or what Layout as yet but will keep you all posted as to when it will be in the magazine as it won't be for a little while yet.

I'm still in shock I never thought it would happen to me. I'm on such a high at the moment.

On the scrapbooking front here is another Layout I have done last week. It is for our America Holiday album. I was inspired by the Layout that Ali Edwards did in last months Creating Keepsakes so I scraplifted the Design of the page a little with the die cut paper at the top and bottom of the page.

I have another Layout I have just finished last night that I have to take a photo of and will post it ASAP. Thanks for looking and all of your comments.

Some Sewing and a new page.

I finally got around to sewing Lily's Easter Bag for her to collect all of her easter eggs. I am very pleased with the end result it does look better in real life than the photo. The Easter Bunny won't be coming to our house until about 1pm when I get home from work. I can't miss the opportunity of getting photos of Lily picking up all of her eggs off the front lawn. So lucky she is still to little to realise, next year I will have to take the day off. I did this layout last night and finished it off this morning.

Thanks for looking and Have a Great Easter.
