Some layouts to share

With so much going on in my family life, my scrapping has become extremely sporadic over the past few weeks. I have a few layouts to share though...

Yesterday I went to the Brisbane Papercraft Festival with some of the CISters, and we attended the "Bit of Bling" class presented by Andrea Thompson. Not only did Andrea present the content in a fun way, it was also fun to hang out with Jolene, Liz and Leone - these girls are so much fun to scrap and shop with. We also met up with Marni for lunch, and she is every bit as nice in person as she is online.
This is my layout... pretty much a copy of the class layout, but it was so relaxing to just sit back and get tactile without thinking too much about the design process:

The class rekindled my love of bling, and I enjoyed trying some new ways to "bling up" my layouts. I especially loved the Jo Sonja's Opal Dust - big glittery pieces in a quick-dry gel - another thing for my wishlist *sigh*

I also finished an entry for the September 123 Challenge. I've had this one sitting on my coffee table for a few weeks, just pondering on how to finish it off. Last night it all fell into place - a Buzz & Bloom chipboard shape (got some yesterday) and some KindyGlitz (inspired by yesterday's bling overload).

The criteria - no flowers, torn paper, a transparency:

And just some close-up details... I really did go to town on the bling:


  1. Gorgeous LO's; loving the colours in the Winter at the Beach pics; and the papers you've used are perfect.

  2. Lucky you get get to hang out with some of our Cisters Karen. Love the pages here.
