Bribie & Cybercrop layouts

We had a wonderful weekend away with the girls for the first ever Scrap of Difference retreat on Bribie Island.  The rain fell steadily for the majority of the weekend which meant we didn't have to feel guilty about not leaving our scrap desks other than to eat :)

However, despite this I only managed 3 layouts and a card completed over the weekend and one more started to bring home and complete for cybercrop.

Here are the results.

This is the one I started at Bribie and finished this weekend for the colour challenge of the cybercrop - steel grey, rust, cream and blue.

Cybercrop this weekend at Scrap of Difference

Well the challenges are all loaded at and it looks like a weekend of fun ahead.  4 challenges to get packed for on top of all the other bits and pieces for a scrappy weekend away with the girls at Bribie Island.  I'm soooooo excited - if I didn't have to fit the kids in the car to take them to school in the morning I'd pack tonight :)

Hopefully will have loads of layouts to share on my return.  However, if all I get to do is sit and scrap and share some time out with my lovely scrappy friends then that will be wonderful too.  Life has been very busy the past few weeks with the kids activities and I'm really looking forward to some "me" time.

If you have some spare scrappy time this weekend - drop over and check out the challenges and join in - you've got a whole week before the deadline.  Hope to see you there!

Creating Keepsakes Acceptance

I received an exciting email today advising that one of my layouts has been accepted for consideration for publication for Creative Keepsakes.  This is a first for me for this mag and I'm very excited.  Have just removed the image from my blog here and other online galleries I had it featured in - now off to parcel it up all ready for postage tomorrow.

Happy Mother's Day & National Scrapbooking Day

Firstly, Happy Mother's Day to all the Mums out there - may your day have been filled with the love and laughter of those you love most.

I hope all the scrapbookers out there have enjoyed National Scrapbooking Day and the fun challenges and prizes being offered around the web this weekend. 

I have had a wonderful 3 days with Print Blocks here in Queensland who have just hosted their Creative Block - an incredible event featuring many overseas tutors from manufacturers around the world.  A well organised event which was very friendly and very inspiring.  I got to play with product that hasn't yet arrived on our shores, see the work of some incredible designers and talk with the people who design the product, sell the product and distribute it around the world.  On top of that, I got to chat with other retailers from around the country.

Thank you to Print Blocks for organising such a super event and for all those who were involved.
