A PROJECT A DAY (and sometimes more!)

In my last post I showed you this fabulous PLANNER I've been working on!
I've finished the covers which I used Prima Cardboard and shabbied it up a little.
I've got a little bag to slip it into as well!  I'm thrilled with it and will definitely be making more as gifts.
I dont know about you - but I have paper and cardstock that I dont use piled up...and I'm really pleased to be able to (lol) cut it all up!!

 I've put a tag in as well for easy page finding!

 All closed up peeping into the top of the bag!
If you click here - you will see the printed pages inside this planner!
(scroll down)

I just love it!!!


---------------------------------------------------------

Also I've been playing challenges over at Bon's Scraps.  Really really cool!
This is the Room of the Month - isnt it gorgeous!
Here's my interpretation

This was a Oct CC sketch
Hannah being followed around by a baby alpaca!  It was fascinated with her!
 And the CC Scraplift
Paige in pink!




Oooh and I got this lovely little parcel from Carol's Etsy!
Carol is 'Let's Get Shabby's' Sponsor this month
Make sure you join the 'Raid Your Sewing Box' Challenge over there!
 And I got these lovelies!  Those colourful ones in the back are earmarked for Christmas!



Sketches to Scrapbook show this other little sneaky-peeky here.
Still waiting for a release date for your phone apps!



And here's my AUSSIE SCRAP-JACKED layout..
Some fabulous designers to jack....you can find them here
 I found this lovely little pic of Meaghan when she was little!


Some more scrapping fun!
Paige on her exam day - taking the lyrics from the song
'She's Not Just a Pretty Face'


This is a favourite photo of mine. It's of Grandad Ted who my girls absolutely adore.
It was a day on the farm.



Phew!!!  Weeeeeell, if you are still with me by end of all this...you've done well!
I've emptied my coffers!!!  So whats a girl to do???

Go scrap some more!!

But wait....I've just had a big surprise!!!
My dd Meaghan has just arrived home from London!!! And she didnt tell me!!
I couldnt believe my eyes... so when she wakes from her jet-lagged sleep
There wont be any scrapping done!
(So I'll scrape in some now!!)

Your planner is divine and turned out so beautifully, I didn't know Prima had brought out a type of cardboard, must've missed that .
Adore all your LO's as usual, all so very unique.

Wow, you always seem to get so much done! Beautiful layouts. Especially love the planner. What a great gift!!!

Bec said...

Oh how wonderful Meaghan surprised you! And what a surprise I bet it was!!

Loooooove your parasols layout. Just gorgeous!

I saw the class for the planner. I thought about it, but thought against it as I don't think I will have time. Although I have finished my DD album already. Can't wait to see what you do this year with your DD album.

hehe, just like when they're young! scrap while they're asleep!

Love all the additions. Really love the strips of torn paper on your Hey You layout :o) You always see people tearing away paper to see behind, but not often adding them to the top... love it!
