HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL & a scrapping year in review

I am into buttons as well now heres alayout of Kaitlyn looking cute.

I finally did a page of the boys first meetig and after I took the photo noticed I left out a word in the journalling oh well we make mistakes.

My favourite layout for today and not difficult to do using up almost the last bit of Paper Pesto December Kit and American craft chipboard letters. I couldnt think of a title and Carol gave me this one - thanks Carol.

Happy New Year Everyone and hope you all had a good Christmas. The above layouts were created at Scrapbook studio last friday where I went and met Carol and had a Mini crop there. I spent more money and now I am interested in doing albums of the size 6 X 12 as that what Carol was working on and hers is looking great and it looks like a nice quick way to do say a milestone album. But they will have to wait as I am hoping to get a cutting machine like the robocraft this year.

I have counted up my layouts I have done since I started 19 months ago and it is 205 so quite a lot. I have also done 4 mini albums and about 10 OTP items not all photographed as Iforgot to take a photo before giving them away. This is such an awesome hobby and I am really enjoying it. I have also tried out for three design teams (Scrapbook studio, NZ Scrapbook and Scrapbooker and Co) but missed out on them but the scrappers that are on these design teams are extremely talented and I love their work. I really think my style has improved in the last six months since SENZ where I won a Paper Pesto kit and I discovered online forums and Challenges and got well and truely hooked. In the next year my to do list is to do a mini album of our wedding day using Paper Pesto November Kit which I havent touched, possibly some mini milestone albums of the kids and some layouts for my BOM and also start an album for Andrew.

Oh well enough of my rambling - all the best for the new year.


  1. Wow that's a lot of scraping lol, i haven't counted mine yet but don't think iv done that many.I also tried out for the design team, but in all honesty i was a little lost with it all lol,i think i need to do more before i try again.At the moment im having fun doing the 6 x 12.
    I love the way you scrap your layouts they look awesome.
    Hope 2008 fulfills your hopes and dreams
