some exciting news


Firstly, I just want to say sorry for my lack of blogging lately. So many wonderful people call in to my blog, leaving me lovely messages. I have been so busy lately that I havent had the time to call in to many blogs, nor leave messages for people. Im sorry, and definately plan to fix that this week. I love checking out your blogs, and have missed it this week. Life has been busy here, being school holidays, and harvest time for us, and DT commitments, there just doesnt seem to be anymore time left in the day for me to 'play'. My 2 littlest boys have been doing swimming lessons everyday this week. Its a fair drive to get there everyday, but they have done great, and had so much fun too, so worth doing.

So, I have been busy creating, and have quite a few projects to share with you over the next few weeks. This LO below is one I did for Zva Creative DT. Its a photo of my daughter a few years back, with my Mum and Dads 2 little dogs. She loved those little dogs, they really were her friends. Ive used Echo park papers ( which I LOVE) along with some gorgeous Zxa flowers and bling. Oh, and dont forget to go check out Zva's new blog , and website.

Zva products used: 3' dual frosty flower pack-pink and white, triumph flourish-soft blue pearl/crystal.

NOW !!!!  I want to share with you some exciting news....  I have been asked to join the design team at Scrapbook Boutique. This is very exciting news, as they are my absolute favorite online store ever. I did some guest designing last year, and the lovely Evelyn has asked me back ( thanks Evelyn xx)  They have the biggest range of dies in Australia , if you didnt know, I have whats verging on a serious addiction to dies, so Im very excited. They dont only have dies though, they stock 1000's of products, you have to go check them out, really !!!!!  They also run a monthy challenge on the blog, where you can win a voucher to spend in the store. Below is the January 'inspiration'. I start with them in February, and I get to play with some gorgeous 'Glitz design' papers, so cant wait to get my hands on them :) ....  

ENTER OUR CHALLENGE - starts 10th each month

Thanks to everyone for calling in, and for leaving the wonderful messages. I have made it my mission to call in to a many blogs as I can this week. So will see you soon xx
