It's about time I got my bum into gear and blogged.. I love blogging but time goes way too fast.. I think I write this each time I blog lol.
I have been on a short holiday with my son and hubby in our caravan up in North Qld.. I was totally sick for the whole 3 days I was there with Bronchitis and a fever. Nasty nasty stuff but I couldn't do anything about it except sleep.. Long was to drive after a day at work to end up in bed for 3 days.. Took me 6 hours to get there.
This week.. actually today I created my own Facebook Project Life page... It is called SNAP IT UP Project Life ...... and if you are not already a member ... please pop over and request to become.. I would be honoured to have you join in the fun, creative goodness and all the crafty and photographic gossip.
I have a few Project Life cards that I am going to share tonight with you. As its been about 4 weeks since I last blogged.. this also means I have 4 weeks of pages.. lol.... anyway.. here is a few below.
I have edited this photo above of my DH and I in pic monkey.. I love the filters they offer in here. I love to play til I get it looking a little different
I have had these Prima Canvas words for about 12 months.. I love them. The red letter stickers are from a Christmas letter sheet from Echo Park.
Cute FAMILY wood veneer word from Flutterbys.
Kaiser Craft wood veneer bee. Journaling done in Picmonkey also.
Kaiser Craft Now Boarding Collectables.... above... These are great little embellishments
Little potty people which I love.... and make today amazing stamped on natural ribbon then sewn down.
Teresa Collins Remember this quote which I punched out. How cool are those funky caravans ?
I was pretty chuffed that all my kits were sold out at the Brisbane Paper and Craft show just last month. I put them together using Simple Stories 24/7 Collection which I adore.
Redecorating at home atm.. I am loving playing with colours, fabric and wall paper..
How sweet do these little transparent overlays look.. they just add so much to a little photo.
Thanks for popping in... I have a few more cars to share.. but that will do for tonight.. Happy scrapping everyone.. keep snapping those snapshots and document them!!! I love it.

Thank God I have 4.5 days off.. we are away at the moment in our caravan but I have been hit with the dreadful flu while driving up here..
I have been in bed since 11pm last night on my arrival .. I have stepped out of bed for 1/2 an hour to get a couple of sunset shots.. as they are divine here.
But first I want to share my Week 21 with you all.
I have used this page protector with the 6x8 insert in it. I love using these. I dont very often but it gets me back to a bit more space to do a bit more scrapping on.
I love this quote I found on Pinterest the other day about FRIENDS
Love these clouds and rain drops.. Love love love clouds. They just make my page look happy.
On this photo as it didn't need anything I added a Becky Higgins overlay to it. Nice and simple.
I have gone through a lot of my cards I havent used for a long time.. This one popped out at me.
Good colours for this week.
I had a bit of fun when I got out my cuttlebug last week.. Had a good 3 nights on it playing and cutting out.. I punched out a few of these LOVE YOU .. Perfect for my little girls photo.
I am having fun revamping and redecorating at home at the moment.. I have sold my lounge suite and dining room suit and bought new ones.. I have changed my colour scheme from my pop of red to a pop of orange and yellow. Cant wait til I get my lounge suite and I can finish it all off.
I have also ordered a gorgeous wood grain wall paper for my scrapping room. I have a nice big 5 metre wall in there which I have been wanting do wall paper for 2 years.. Now is the time.
I will post a before and after photo when I get it done.
Have a good weekend everyone. I am hoping to be a bit more lively tomorrow.
Night night x

I miss blogging on a regular basis but us big people are always just so so busy. I like to fill my days... and I do.. but man oh man.. there is so much that I don't get done that I would love to.
In the past 4 weeks I have been busy working... have been to Byron Bay for a long weekend for the Ocean Swim my hubby competes in, have put myself on a healthy lifestyle change and have lost 9.5kg, been struggling with a nasty issue in my life, but have finally got it sorted... I went to Ebay and bought a set of BIG BALLS... LOL.... and also have been spending any time I can with my close friends and my awesome husband on my days off.. He is amazing and so are my BFF's.
But hey that is life.. and if we don't die through the hard times.. we learn from them and get stronger.
I am seriously blessed with my life.. and the people in it.. I wouldn't change a thing.
I have been busy with my Project Life.. I am loving it more and more each week. There is so much more I want to do with it.. but as Im 4 to 5 weeks behind most of the time... I just keep going and going. But this week I have been playing with my Cuttlebug and stamps.. having lots of fun creating different things.. I haven't scrapped for over a week but at the same time I have been creating.. Love it!!
I am at present putting together a date for my next Project Life Retreat here at Daisy Chain Scrapbooks in Nambour. The last one was a massive hit and we had an absolute fantastic girly weekend. I will blog the date as soon as I have one.
I have just added a few pics below of some of my work I have done lately.
After we all work all week and have our own life commitments.. its always fun and fabulous to catch up with these girls..
Lucky we are all dorks... thats why we love each other!!!
My girl and her boy Igor... Igor and Corey are great mates.
We have decided to do a mini revamp at home in our lounge and dining area.. I am doing from wood and red accessories to an off white beige fleck lounge with beige and natural accessories with a pop of and yellow... I can't wait.. Both lounge suite and white two pack dining table and chairs are being made as I type.. So exciting.. I found this little beauty today for $35 from $79 and the little artichoke flowers too.. they are gorgeous .
Our new lounge.. but I have ordered it in a light cream with a beige fleck in it.. and fabric!!! I have bought 8 plush cushions in the earthy tones and gorgeous textures.. and also added in 2 yellow patterned ones and a yellow and white cotton throw ...
Below is my little Simple Stories Snap journal card. I have added my calendar to cork board then used this cute little EVERYDAY VELLUM TAGS.. from Studio Fourteen40. You can have a choice to have the underneath journalling or stamping to come through the tag ... OR.. like I have done I had punched out a white piece of card stock and adhered it to the yellow tag. It gives it a very bright fresh shine to it if you have a darker colour underneath.
Make sure you pop over to Studio Fourteen40 as they are having a sale on right now!!!!
Just have to add my journalling in this little beauty.. I have used a cute little diamonte on this camera lens... I love cameras and I love to add a little quirky something in the lens..
Monika and I finally got some US TIME... oh we miss each other.. Was perfect at our favourite place to catch up.. Silva Spoon in Cotton Tree. So delish and omg the homemade cakes they make there ... I have never seen quite amazing looking cakes and cupcakes in my whole life..!!!!
Well Im off to go and Project Life tonight.. a bit of catching up to do.
Take care everyone and thanks for stopping in.
