NZ Dares - 100% Scraps


Alrighty..I am doing another post today - can you believe it???
This LO of my cutie-pie nephew is made of 100% scraps...all the pps came out of my off-cut box...the title is from a pack of Heidi Swapp plastic alphas which was already opened & used..the sad little embelly is made from a scrap of felt, fibre, scrap of Q&Co felt & staples - so sad...and yet so appropriate LOL.
I found a CD of pics from dec 2003- oct 2005..so I toddled off to Harvey Normans to get a bunch printed today - VERY HAPPY with the bundle I came away with...but do you ever find when you're looking through your pics after having them printed that there are some missing...now I don't know if they went missing at the exporting from my pc stage or if I somehow completely skipped them while going through the whole printing process...but they ARE missing...OH but I found out something wonderful today...if you are on the printing options screen & you hit the bottom arrow you get more options - 1 of the being 2 pics on a 4x6 - although this only comes in gloss finish I'm happy.
I actually did try this option the other day - but ended up getting 2 of the same pic on each sheet, so I was thinking - OK that's actually good, cos it means that Taigy can have the extras -I'm limiting her to 6x6 LOs at this stage ;o), but when I was looking through my prints I saw that each 1/2 pic was different (if you know what I mean)...so if you need some 3x2's (like fro an Idol challenge or something) that's an easy way to get them :o)
Anyhoo, now I have pics of Taigy's 2nd & 3rd birthdays to scrap....but I just remembered one of the missing pics was from the 3rd birthday series...ahhhhh may need to make another trip...lucky its only 5mins away!!!
OK...I'm going to try to keep away from the PC tonight & scrap, scrap, scrap...I managed 3 LOs last night...so we'll see what I can do tonight with fresh inspiration in the form of old pics ;o)
Have a good one :o)
** Oh, forgot to mention that the bazzill was scrap too - I cut it to 8x8 for a CJ entry...but the colour just didn't happen LOL

I get heaps of those 3x2 photos done, I love them! And I discovered the other week that they CAN be printed in matte, you just have to ask the staff, and they change something on their PC to make it print in matte. So I was stoked about that!

Hey kelly, sorry I meant to ring you today but got caught up into other things. Have got a lot of things on tomorrow and on Monday we are leaving for the snow getting back on Friday. If it is ok with you I will give you a ring next weekend to catch up.
