Change is in the Air

There's been a bit of a change over at Pinkalicious Sketches

Good Morning Everyone, firstly I would like to thank everyone who participates in our sketches without you we wouldn't have this great challenge blog - So from the bottom of my heart Thank you

Secondly As on Today we have gone Monthly because I know we all get so consumed in our lives we just run out of time, so here we are the first day of a new start

Thirdly the Amazing & Beautiful Lee-anne from Scrap Therapy will be sponsering us every Month! Yay!! So not only will you get a great Scrap & Stamp pack but you will also get a Voucher to spend at the fabulous Scrap Therapy Shop!!

Been sick, but busy

Well I ended up with my asthma playing up, which made doing anything hard (its amazing how important breathing is!). But I've been able to do plenty of scrapping.

This was for Puzzle Sketches. I always love how everyones LO's look so different even using the same pieces. Photobucket

This next LO was for Round three of the Make Believe Masters over at Scrap Therapy. Not only for they have these awesome challenges, but for June only, they have 20% off ALL alphabets!!!! Even Thickers!!!!!! Gotta hurry though, we are trying to buythe shop.

Finally this LO I do for the 10x10 challenge over at Pickleberrypop. Its great to get into the digi stuff, heaps less mess and heaps cheaper!!

This week I'm off to Orange for training and get to catch up with Mum (YAY!!) Very important bisness will be happening, we are doing the alterations for my wedding dress and buying the clothes for my hens. (Would you believe I have no purple at all!! Its a disgrace). I'm also catching up with the awesome Amanda, who I don't see anywhere near enough these days. I am terrified of the cold though, I'm no longer used to temperatures with a minus sign in front of them!!

One final this which I keep forgetting (don't know how though) is I finally finished uni!!! (AGAIN). And no, I am not going back for a very long time!!!!

Until next time, take care!

I'm sick at home today, so though it was about time I updated my blog!

A new fortnight is upon us and a new sketch is up at Pinkalicious Sketches! This is my take on the challenge. I love this Prima paper, it beautiful and glittery in real life.
Scrap Therapy has had some huge announcements with a new design team being announced. I can't wait to see what they come up with.

Two of the ex-dter's from Scrap Therapy have joined up to create a new challenge blog.
Lets Get Shabby


If you love shabby as much as we do and would enjoy each challenge with shabby chic style, then add yourself to our followers as we begin a journey of shabby paper, fabric, lace, flowers, birds, paint, ink, distressing, colour, vintage and layering just to name a few!!!

On the 25th of June a new prompt will appear, due 20th July - so upload to your personal blog or online gallery, link it back here in the comments section and we will do our best to visit and leave you some love!

Finally, for those of us with old photos that need restoring, Sarah, a fellow DT for Pinkalicious and her husband have started up a new business

Well, a little bit of exciting news in my world...even though my husband Dean being made redundant he’s certainly not moping around! As well as throwing himself in to job hunting he’s finally taken the leap and set up his own photo editing business. It’s all official with a registered business name an domain – how cool!!!

The name of the business is “The Photo Fixer”, and the website is
www.thephotofixer.com.au – and as the name says, he fixes photos – working with either digital photos, printed photos or even negatives. You name it, he can do it!Dean can restore those old photos you have in the box at the back of the cupboard to make them look like new, restoring colours, rips and cracks. But that’s only the beginning! As scrapbookers we all know how elusive “the perfect photo” can be, but it doesn’t have to come straight out of the camera – there are so many cool things that can be done post-photography to get great results. Possibilities include teeth whitening, skin touch ups, removal of unwanted backgrounds or details, additional of details from another image, the list goes on!

So if you think you could use The Photo Fixer’s services, please jump on the website and get in contact with us.

Oh and in final news, wedding invites were sent yesterday!!! That means most of the main organising is done YAY!!!!!!

I wanna go home!!!!

I'm so sick of travelling! Last weekend I had 3 nights at the Mt Boppy Scout camp with the Scouts. It went well, a few hiccups but nothing major.

Since then I came to Dubbo for training on Tuesday, spent Wednesday with Aly and Thomas in Parkes (he is soooooooo cute!!!) and came back to Dubbo to see the dentist today and DGO meeting tomorrow. I'm then back here on Sunday for poker. I think I'm going to just move here :(

I'm looking forward to Saturday. Not only will I be at home but its cybercrop time at Scrap Therapy . I'm setting the card challenge, so come over in the morning and see what the challenges are.

I've also been doing the Make Believe Masters Challenges, and becuse I've been away, I did the second one as a digi
The following pages were for last months challenges at Pickleberrypop

This one I did tonight as part of the scraplift challenge at Pickleberrypop.

Take care!!
