Nothing to share this week.
No pic or layouts. I have scrapped but for Therapy things that I can't share as yet. I am trying to get myself ahead and it is working. lol I have scrapped the inspiration for March and am looking for Aprils already, have scrapped a class layout that isn't on the plans till July and have scrapped a sample for April cc too. I just need to try and do a basic digi sketch. Anyone have any simple advice for a non digi scrapper?
What has been happening in Therpay this week.
-Well the SWTS comp has come to an end. 10 weeks, 10 stars and some awesome pages done by all. The winner of week ten and the overall winner will be announced very soon. There were a few Therapy members who with me managed to do all 10 rounds so a big congrats goes out to Cbr900, fifiscrapz, Fran, jennyd, Kelly Girl, Lea, Mandysea, Natchic, Peg, Racsam, Scoutannie and Wendyjw .
-Step by Step bonaza this coming weekend. You can check out all the details here. It is going to be one fun filled weekend.
-We have a new design therapist. Pop in here to welcome our new member. I am so looking forward to working with her. Congrats again Missy.
-The end of the month is near and still time to put in a page for the monthly challenge the inspiration challenge and the calendar class to be in the running to win a voucher.
-We also have a new paper for the month in this months paper possibilities and it is a challenge and a half and I thought last months was a big challenge lol.
-Blind scrapping is now going to be a regular monthly thing too. This Wednesday night it is Narelle running it and next month I will be having a go. I already have an idea brewing for it. If you haven't joined in before do so as it is a whole lot of fun and I love seeing the different pages done from the same set of instructions.
What has been happening at home.
Not all that much really. We lead a very boring life out here. lol
Went up and spent some time with friends yesterday and today and am happy for them to finally get the good news about getting some help that they need. The next three, maybe more months, are going to be a struggle for them and I am hoping that it all goes well for them.
Well that is all from me for now. I promise I'll have something to share next week.
Till next time thanks for popping in, any comments that you leave and happy scrapping.
Hope to see you all in Therapy.

Pages and cards to share.
I have a few things to share today and not one photo as I've not taken any this week.
Red skin antics
is my sample page for Jolenes challenge in the last round of SWTS.
I had fun doing this one. Not!!! It started out as a 12 by 12 with a stamped and rub on title to the left of the green paper but It so wasn't grabbing me so it got chopped and the title re-done.
What does 1 have to do?
Is a page I finally got around to scrapping for Laura as her prize in the av challenge I held durring my weekend of hosting in the month long birthday cybercrop over at Therapy in January. Both the bird and the trans were items I got in swaps last year.
1 sticky girl
is my page for Belinda's Monthly calendar class this month. Belinda does up her pages as 8.5 by 11 and they have been so easy to adapt to my 6by 6 size.
On Friday night Narelle hosted a card class making 5 cards designed by Caroline McLachlan. I had fun making up two of the cards from the class as samples.
and giving them a touch of me.
This is my fav of the two I did. Asher gave it to her little friend yesterday for her birthday and the other will be for a friend at work who is 21 soon.
What else is happening over at Therapy.
-Have you taken part in a blind challenge before. We have one happening on Wednesday night and they are so much fun. Details will be found here with a materials list going up soon. Don't worry if you can't be around for this one as they are going to be a regular monthly thing.
-Feel like a weekend step by step bonaza. Well over the weekend of the 29th Feb there will be a few projects posted. Tamara a Therapy regular has been posting a few tips in the forum on using chalks and will start of the weekend with a free class on Friday night. You can sign up here.
My I love you daddy mini albm will be a part of the bonanza. You can find all the details here. The other dters all have something planned too.
Well that is about all from me for now.
As usual thanks for stopping by, any comments that you may leave, happy scrapping and I hope to see you in Therapy.

The rest of Sundays post.
lol my net went down and when it was back up it was a bit late and dd needed sorting out so I'm back.
Here are a few pages that I have done for Therapy this week.
I got to set this months challenge as seeing as it is valentines this month asked the girls to do a wedding page and to include a quote on the layout somewhere.

On our first valentines day together Craig gave me a little book of love letters written by famous people and I have included one of my favorites on the pull out tag.

Over at Therapy Nat had an idea to start up a fun challenge. The way it works is towards the end of the month, before the dters put in thier order I'll put up a post for members whw are stumped on what to do with papers in the shop. Nat will pick one of the first three papers suggested and then pop one into the dt pizza box and get us to do something with it. And 1 lucky member will also get the chance to play around with a piece too. The urban lily flower paper was this months pick. Although the pink cut out flower and a few of the coloured strips was all that I used from the paper.

I have done another page but can't share it just yet, a sample for the next cc. Yeap I went with the idea while I had it going in my mind as it isn't for a few weeks

I found sometime to do this months scrapjack too.and to join in on a cybercrop over at CIS.

Well it is goodnight fron me for now. As knowing my little girl she'll be waking up in the wee hours of the morning. Has been doing alot of that lately and the only way she will resettle is if I sleep with her.

Till next time, thanks for popping in, thanks for any comments, happy scrapping and see you in Therapy I hope.

First week back at school.
So much for my mid week post again. lol
I have also decided that I am going to have to try and name my post anything other than Sundays share. lol It doesen't help when I am looking for a certain post and I have to read through a month or so's worth.
Asher started back at school and swimming this week. She loved going back to school but swimming not so keen on it. Has got issues with having to go under the water. She loves swimming but isn't going to be a Thorpedo.
I was going to share some stuff but seeing as DD is still up at 10ish I have got to go.
Will be back tomorrow.
See you all in Therapy.

Sundays share
lol so much for me doing a mid week share Oops I forgot.
Well a bit has been happening this past week.
I went up to see Paul, Justine and the boys on Thursday and we had fish and chips at the beach for tea with the intention of getting some nice beach pics of the four of them and silly me forgot to check her camera and only got a few pics as the card was full.
Here are a few I got after deleting some I didn't need. Well it would help if I've taken them of the camera. lol Will hopefully have them sorted for my mid week post.
Ok here are some of my girl having fun decorating one of my old t-shirts to take to school to use as a paint shirt instead.I couldn't help but take the pic of her with the adroable stamp and the finished product.
Well it was Therpay's monthly cc this weekend and we had lots of fun challenges you still have till Monday midnight to get your entry in. You can check out all the info here .
Here is my sample for the second challenge, as well as for round 9 of swts. I'm a sneeky dter aren't I. lol
The pics are of Craig and his new toy that I took a few weeks back when he had his first remote control car race. Much to his disgust I actually painted one of Max's wheels to get the tyer pattern on the
Challenge four was the usual card one but a scraplifting one. Bety is an awesome card maker who's blog I pop into often so I asked her to choose her two favorite valentines cards for us all to lift.
This is my card inspired by one of hers.And I finally finished the mini album this morning for a project that will be posted at the end of the month.

Well girls till next time thanks for stopping by, any comments and happy scrapping. I hope to see you all in Therapy some time.
