Busy Weekend

Well I scrapped & scrapped & scrapped this weekend.

I received my Jan kit from SBO & had to create some LOs...I'll share a sneak of that...made 4 LOs, 3 cards & still have left pretty happy with that & the MM paint is just delicious to paint chipboard with.
On Friday night I went to scrap at Heidi's - SBO had a chat 'n challenge to get any 2006 projects completed.
Well I had 2 CJs sitting on my desk from I managed to get them done & dusted....One CJ from last year went missing - so I re-did my pages for that...and they are winging their way to Ilka as I type - PHEW!!
I should be receiving another CJ in the post I'll try to get that one off my desk within a week ;o)
I've popped up sneaks of the CJ pages too cos I don't want to spoil the surprise for the girls (just incase they stumble across my blog ROFL!!)
SBO also had a couples of challenges on top of/combined with getting to projects done:
1. scrap a pic older than 6months
2. use embellishments older than 6 months
For each of my CJ entries I used old embellies...conchos, vellum heart, clear tag thingy etc.
On my old pic challenge I used a sheet of index prints that had been sitting on my desk since Jorjy was a baby...2004 & on that puppy I used some photo corners, a bottle cap & an old puffy sticker in the centre of the cap...I used Sares1's (Sarah Gladman) ribbon technique very cool!!
I'm very happy with how this turned out..looks like Jorjy's album is well under way for the year :o)
And finally, JacquiJ has posted her weekly challenge #3 over at was to use white cardstock as your background.
I took this pic of Mal Mal & his Grandma at the beach when we went to Army Bay a couple of week's ago...I love it!!
I used BG blush pps & mini monos... I think its a great start to Malakai's album :o)
The stamps along the side are Rhonna Farrer Autumn Leaves Flourishes V2....if you can get your hands on a set - GET THEM!!! they are divine...I borrowed these off Heidi..she got them from Lisa's Shoppe...seriously, if you don't have a handy dandy neigbour down the road with a set of these puppies you really ought to treat yourself!!!
OK, so far this year I have done pages for Jorja, Malakai, Ebby & the Pace/Renata I have Kohatu, Reign, Ethan, Creed, Jordan & Keziah left...and if I manage to get some pics of Troy & Lexi I'll have another 2 albums to do :o)
I think somewhere I said one of my resolutions was going to be to NOT do every challenge I see...ahhhh who am I kidding???
Now that I've freed my mind to double up on challenges, perhaps I can do twice as many hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!
