Goodbye 2010.....

Is it just me, or has this year flown by even faster than usual ? They say time goes faster as you get older, but, OMG, if it goes any faster, I dont think I will be able to keep up !!

It has been a wonderful year for me as far as my scrapping umm 'addiction' goes. I found the courage to put myself 'out there' in the scrapping scene in February of this year, by starting a blog, and applying for a couple of design team positions, and submitting some of my work to the Aussie mags. I have been blown away by how fortunate I have been. I have the honour of being accepted onto several wonderful design teams, have had my layouts published in Creating Keepsakes, Scrapbooking Memories and Scrapbook Creations, and have also just recently been accepted onto the design team for a fabulous new Aussie magazine called Australian scrapbook ideas . This is a brilliant magazine, which not only has some amazing designers showcasing their work, but all the layouts have step by step instructions, and theres some great tips and ideas as well, all with 'how to' instructions. My first feature will be in next months magazine, issue 5... Available in the newsagents in January :) ...

Today, I want to share with you a layout I did for the Scrapboxx . follow this link to register for their Free monthly newsletter, full of fabulous layouts, ideas and inspiration.

This layout is of my 2 youngest boys, with Santa. hmmm, trying to get a good photo of both of them smiling was no mean feat. They are both going through a 'weird smile' phase, and this half decent photo was about #30 taken. Poor Santa needed a coffee break afterwards. LOL...

Wishing you all a wonderful new years celebration, and a safe and happy 2011....
