And as usual - lots of things happening!!! Firstly - how exciting... I won over at 'What's Ad About' it was their very first challenge. I love working off ads! (very big smile!).
The criteria is: use of book paper, the word 'SMILE, and use a non-scrappy item!!
Totally fun stuff! Go check it out!

For my non-scrappy item I've used pencil shavings to go around my flowers!!


Yes, and there's a new song up 'Mr Blue Skies'.
Its a fab song to scrap to!!
Here's Meaghan enjoying beachlife!
Check out the new ad - so fun. I went with the colours rather than the clean cut of the ad. This is my little Paige in Art Class, she was helping paint sets for 'The Secret Garden' .
. 30TH AUG 09 Another Sat morning at the studio. . . 31st AUG PHOTO Hmmn, the Sunday night scramble to get homework done! As much as I try to get the girls to avoid this..........it still happens!! . . 1ST SEPT PHOTO Yep!! I'm taking a photography course with 'Get It Scrapped' to
learn more about my camera! I'm soo not a 'read the instructions' kinda girl..... This is the only way!! So watch this space! Hopefully amazing things will turn up! . . .
