Howdy, howdy, howdy folks… Back again this evening to share with you another DT creation..
This post I’d love to share with you the newest challenge from the Lasting Memories LO blog..
#139 – Inspired by a TV show..
Behind the Scenes – 4 Weddings
This one was really quite easy for me…
As most of you know, I was featured as a contestant on the Australian series version of Four Weddings…
It was definitely quite a unique experience to say the least.. lol
Not sure what you might create using a TV show??? How about these suggestions?!?! –>
Maybe it could be as simple as your child’s fav “Sesame Street” character?
A LO dedicated to a great “Big Brother”?
Oh how about a great day spent at the beach building Sand “Castle”s ?
— See, this challenge doesn’t seem so tricky now does it!
Remember to have your entry linked up by the weekend.. Happy Scrapping.. xoxo
Welcome back friends and followers.. I’m so glad to have you here on this beautiful MOTHER’S DAY!
The weather in my neck of the woods has been gorgeous all day…
I got a fair bit of housework done and some baking.. Then some scrapping and tiding of my scrap room… I got a CupCake display holder that I’ve wanted for ages, a very pretty photo frame, a stunning Pink leather purse that is simply gorgeous! And some awesome creations from my boys, like a keyring, cards, painting and name poem thing.. So yes, I’ve had a lovely day!
I hope you all have too!
The Glitter n Sparkle challenge blog have just released their newest challenge for this week… A nice and easy one again.. And don’t forget about the BLOG HOP still running… There is a great Digi Image up for grabs on my blog by one of our GnS sponsors…

This cheeky little SHELIA is called “Australia” from Sassy Studios.. I loved playing with her.. I tried some new colours.. Not 100% certain I love the colours yet, but I am looking forward to colouring her and having a play later on to try and find a great colour combo for her..

I haven’t missed a challenge each week since I started being a DT in September, but with so much going on with life and the extra DT’s I’m on, Lasting Memories unfortunately was the one that I had to set aside and had a mini break from to take some of the pressure off me for the month of April..

Welcome back to another DT release for the Child’s Play challenge blog..
I am still very much in love with every challenge that Child’s Play throw at me, however this one had me a little stumpt! lol..
Thankfully the other DT ladies were able to inspire me with some great ideas..
Classic Toy challenge – Jump Rope
As my boys have never really got into the whole Skipping Rope thing, I had to think outside the box, and thanks for the other DT ladies for their assistance, I was able to come up with this…
On this layout, I used Bakers Twine as my “jump rope” effect…
Here Hunter is playing on the swing and slide set we have in the backyard sand play area..
I hope you enjoy this LO… But hope even more that you’ll drop over to the Child’s Play challenge blog and check out the rest of the awesome DT creations for this week..

#30 – White with 1
This week I got to work with another awesome image that not only I loved, but so did my boys…
So I would like to thank Digi Darla for allowing me the use of their, Lil Racer..
As you can see, I choose BLUE as my other colour to pair with White..
I also had to use N0 for the tyres..

Hi everyone.. As mentioned in my latest blog post about the newest release for Lasting Memories, I have been quite been with other “life” stuff at the moment and with LOADS, and LOADS of swaps, that I haven’t been entering challenges… Anyway, so I thought I’d share with you everything that is going on here lately..
Football season has just started… — Here are some of the adults playing..
Swimming is coming to an end… — Here is Lane with two of his friends at their School Carnival.. He and Ben (Lane on the right, Ben on the left) were tied for Age Runner-Up Champs, and Jonah was Age Champ.. So very proud of them..
Lane is moving from the Sharks Club, into the same Squad and Club as these boys in a few weeks time.. He is very excited that he will be swimming more often with his friends.. *Although the Sharks presentation night is coming up this weekend, we are very excited for that too!
Speedway is almost over this season too…. — Here is my Hunter with his friend, Hunter! lol.. (my Hunter is on the left)
Play Group —- Hunter and I have even joined in a local Mum & Toddler play group..
NOW ONTO CRAFTING STUFF
Here are some of the SWAPS that I have been going…. SORRY THAT SOME OF THE PICS ARE ON THEIR SIDE.. I CAN’T ROTATE THEM… Hope you enjoy anyway!!
Cricut Aussie Swap - Autumn theme.. So I cut out the leaves, distressed them, then crackle paint over top..
— These were for a Children’s Theme..
Blue and Brown “Embossed” cardstock - for LO group swap
Easter “Title” – for LO group swap
Tag’s for a “Spring” LO group swap
HELLO friends and followers..
#136 – Inspired by a Quote
As you may have noticed over the past couple of months, I have been very quiet with scrapping.. I haven’t really had much time for challenges sometimes barely getting DT projects in time, which certainly is not normal for me…
To relieve some of the pressure on myself over the last couple of weeks, I’ve taken a quiet break from the Lasting Memories Challenge blog with DT projects.. Last week and this week I haven’t managed to get a LO up.. I feel terrible about this, but I know that the other DT’s are so very talented that they will of course provide plenty of inspiration for you all..
So I am extremely sorry for letting you down, but I promise that once everything settles down with Swimming and Football, I will be back into the swing of DT creations soon!! xoxo
As for now though, the latest challenge has been released, I’d love for you to head over and check out the amazing DT LO’s and link up your own entry to the Lasting Memories blog by the weekend..
Welcome back to another great challenge just released from the Glitter n Sparkle blog..
#29 – 1,2,3…
1x Image – 2x Pattern Paper – 3x Embellishments
Here is my DT card…
I was really lucky this week to work with a super cute image “Mending Teddy” by QKR Stampede..
You have until the end of the week to drop over to the Glitter n Sparkle challenge blog to link your entry… Good Luck and have fun! xoxo
