Where Oh Where has my MOJO gone????

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas, the girls were so excited at seeing all the pressies from Santa on Christmas morning... Makes it all worth while.

I am currently suffering from Scrappers Block, of course this happens when I need to get cards and a LO done for a design team submission. So I have a 75% completed OTP project and a LO which is 50% but do you think I can find the right stuff to finish either. Anyone with any ideas please help, because I would really love to put in this submission but on my current rate I might have this done by Easter LOL.....

Well better go, the monsters have had a field day in my loungeroom and I had better start cleaning it up...

Love Lou

Merry Christmas

Hello All

I am sitting here putting off tiding the house for tomorrow's festivities, so I would thought would pop on and give you an update. I am currently putting together a package to apply for a design team position. I won't say anymore for who but I am excited about this. I have to create an OTP item, I have picked the Q2 Advent Calender from Kaisercraft, here is a sneak peak of it

I also took some photo's of my daughters last night while they were dancing around the room to Christmas Carols. Here is Daphne, typical poise for her now,

Here is my "Baby" Olivia, she is priceless,

Better make a start, Merry Christmas to you all and I hope to see you soon

Christmas is definitely in the air, this week. I still have quite alot to do but of course I am scrapping instead.... LOL

I have done 2 LO's which I would like to share with you, first one is of my eldest daughter Daphne. This photo was taken about 18months ago but I love it, as it shows her at her cheeky best. I had actually gone to my LSS that day and brought these papers which were on sale and I used them, a first for me. Love My Minds Eye and I had not seen these ones before and I thought that they suited this photo down to a tee....

This second LO is of my youngest daughter Olivia, she was a slow crawler and this photo shows her finally get up and crawling properly as she had been commando crawling for months before this. This is the first time I have ever used a doily and a cloud cutout on any of my LO's. This LO is getting back to my original way of scrapping,very cute and lots of pink for the girls...hehehe

Fingers crossed I get back here before Christmas but with only 3 days to go, I might not... So I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and I hope Santa is kind to you all.

Some ATC's and a Card for you

Told you I would be back, and here I am, first off I am going to show you a couple of ATC's that I have created in the last couple of months, first one I created for Scrap 'n' Art Forum back in November the theme was angels/fairies,

The next ATC was created for Born2Create Forum for a competition which is happening in December - this was a Christmas theme and I created this little guy from images that I downloaded from The Graphic's Fairy. You need to go have a look at this Blog because this women is great - all the downloads are free and they are classic vintage.

Lastly but not least is a card that I created for Mad about Scrappin Blog, they have a monthly Card Competition - this month it is a two part competition and the first part had to be a Christmas card that was not square/rectangle and had to use 3 different christmas papers, so I went with the classic Christmas Pudding.

So I am going to be loading my creations as they are completed, I am going to resist the temptation to load previous completed material except for these. So everything you see here will be fresh new stuff,

Looking forward to hearing from you all
xx Lou


Welcome to my first ever post.....
This is exciting stuff, you will have to bear with me while I construct this Blog over the next couple of weeks. I have created this Blog to let me share my creations with the world. Now I hope to be back later tonight to show you some stuff I have done recently but I have to go and have a driving lesson, yep SAD but true I am a thirty something with no license. But enough about that, will speak to you all later tonight....
