Up 2 Mischief!

Good morning and welcome to all my new blog readers! It's been great to see such a fabulous response to my giveaway :) I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. I had a very relaxing weekend at home, hanging out with the kids, watching dvd's and doing lots of crafting. Lucky for me, Em is still craft obsessed and she loves to hang out with me in the craft room. She has been making all sorts of little creations, from scrapbook pages and off the pages items, to dolls clothes and bags. It's all so cute! She is keen to start her own blog, but I think she might be a bit young for that yet, but stay tuned for a 'Guest Blogger' post from her soon ;)

Seeing as I've been scrapping with lots of new Kaisercraft goodies, I can't share those layouts just yet, but I did finish of this layout that I started last weekend...

I'm still chipping away at my older stash of papers, and these ones are BoBunny Flutter Butter. Love the colours in this range!

Now how cute is this little Purple Pumpkin Gumnut Babies button? I've been dying to use that on a page!

And I love this Purple Pumpkin Green Heart button too...

Now, I don't know how well you can see it under there, but I've tucked a little handmade lace flower behind the papers there, and it was super quick and easy to make, and the best part - no sewing! I'll be popping up a little tutorial for those on here soon :)

Well, I've got a busy day of flower making ahead of me today, to get ready for the Purple Pumpkin sale next week, so I'd better get cracking. Hope you have a wonderful week!

A Layout & Exciting News!

Yes, I have more exciting news, but first of all I thought I would share a layout. This is the page that I submitted to the Kaisercraft design team call. I also submitted another page with my application, which was from one of their Saturday Sketches, but this one I made especially for the dt call...

I love that sweet photo of my babies! Not that they're babies anymore of course, they are huge! Jack especially is really starting to look like a young man, rather than just a boy these days, but he'll always be my baby boy to me :) :)

Apart from the corrugated cardboard and the paper doily, everything on this page is Kaisercraft.

I love the Sweet Nothings range, it was so easy to scrap with, and that wooden word...I LOVE it!

Now for my exciting news!!

I was thrilled to be asked to join the fabulous Sassy Scrappers design team! The other girls on the design team are all amazingly talented, so make sure you check out the DT announcement HERE.

I'm feeling very lucky and grateful to be starting on two wonderful design teams, so check in here tomorrow for a HUGE GIVEAWAY. See you then!

My Exciting News!!

I have just been BUSTING to share the news that I'm on the 2012-2013 Kaisercraft Design Team!!! I'm so excited!

At the end of last year, I finished up on the design teams I was on because I just wanted to scrap 'for me' for a while...but after a little bit, I found that I really missed being on a design team. So when the Kaisercraft design team call came up, I knew I just had to give it a go. I'm so happy to be on this fabulous design team, with so many talented scrappers! If you haven't seen the DT announcement, you can check it out HERE.

Now I'll be stalking the postie for my box of design team goodies. I can't wait!!!

Hope you have a great week!!

Today's the Day! - 12WBT

Yes, I've signed up for 12WBT!

I'm always 'planning' to go on a diet, and I'm always 'planning' to exercise, but I never actually do. But I bit the bullet, and actually signed up, and now I'm actually raring to go. Actually, I didn't realize quite how unfit I was, until I did the fitness test yesterday, and nearly coughed up a lung! And I only had to run 1 kilometer! I pretty much collapsed at the end of it, so that was a bit of a wake up call, and now I'm looking forward to being a lot healthier from now on :)

So before I go and do my workout DVD, I have a quick layout to share...

Another old photo, this time of Jack and my mum, when Jack was around 4. I used My Minds Eye papers, and some Purple Pumpkin buttons. Love those heart buttons!!

Well, it's workout time for me now!! Eeeek! Hope I make it through the whole hour or so!

Hope you have a great week!
