Busy Bee...

Hi !

Welcome to February !
Wow isnt time flying by??
Through Jan it was a busy month for me ..let me tell you what i got up to !

Becci Sundberg is the owner of Lime Tree Creations, a cute little site that specialises in handmade items that are crocheted.

I have been so priviledged this month to be asked to design for February for Lime Tree Creations.
I am lucky enough to know Becci and she asked me to create some designs last year for LTC for Feb and of course i said YES!
So she sent me a VERY GENEROUS pack, the FEB challenge criteria - i ( heart ) ... and away i went !

Free Spirit - Lime Tree Creations Guest Designer February.
So who do i heart ???
This is of course my little free spirit Trinity, who is 2 , who is in every sense of the word.. Shes a handful at times to be sure, but shes so funny and shes got such a loving nature about her thats shes gonna be one of those kids who will melt your heart.. I can just see it..

Close up of Lime Tree Creations Round Crochet buttons with ceramic round buttons.
Of all Becci's creations, i love the crochet round buttons and flowers the most, theyre so fresh n funky..and great for adding things to. In my case i added another cardboard flower embellie and with the round one i added one of Becci"s little ceramic buttons as well and tied it with a little bit of string.

The runner is actually a very generous size and would fit across the whole page, i had heaps of left over to do more layouts.

This is just an alternative idea as well that you can use for some of the smaller items in the pack..

This is one of Becci's little hearts that came painted and i tied the string through it..

Make sure you head on over to Becci's site to have a go at this challenge..

It was such a great generous pack full of lots of fun goodies !

Thanks Becci for the opportunity to be the first ever guest designer for Lime Tree Creations.
I hope you liked my designs because i loved designing for you!

What an honour!

Hi There !

Its been a while hasnt it?
I really dont like to go this long without a post.. but life has gotten in the way.

Its getting harder to try and do so many things lately!
For those of you who are wondering why i take so long to get things done its this !

1. A little 2 year old princess who wants EVERYTHING NOW!

2. An 11 mth who is just starting to crawl and pull himself around and is NOW into EVERYTHING! LOL!

Those are the MAIN reasons like any mum i am not getting much done! LOL !
Not much to share in scrapping just yet, but be on the lookout as there is things coming up !
We are having our first CC at Challenge Heaven, we hope you can come along and support us !
Take Care

another day another share :)

Hi !

Well i have another share today.

Just a random just because. I have decided to do more "me" layouts!
Not for a dt not for a theme, not for a challenge site, but just because i want to.

Here it is :)

Dawson at Play.

This year is all about organisation for me.
I am not trying to just organise the household but my personal time too.
Do u ever feel like its getting all too much ?
Well it can be here testing days and the like - the kids can be terrors at times like most peoples but then, i think how lucky i am to have them at all and i know that these stages pass.
Then i look at the photos i scrap of my kids and i fall in love with them all over again.

We have been hit with an icy blast here today. But thats melbourne weather for ya !
Poor kids theyre so bored..hopefully we can get out on the weekend.

On other news i have left my old job and now have an interview tommorrow.. wish me luck.

So we have a little bit of fun. It is always hard in December for us. Such a busy month and to top it off i had a computer breakdown too. So i am now typing on the new laptop Darrel and i brought for ourselves.
Its been great and we love it. Still able to use the old one, just in limited blocks though.


I also have been busy scrapping again.. heres the latest offerings at scrapbook kits.  This is one of the Jan kits that Jules has got available and its such a great kit for boys and mens pages as well.  Heres what i did with the kit.
