So I bought these digital frames

about 12 months ago. The intention at the time was to somehow incorporate them into so scrapbook pages. Not full on digital just a bit of a go at hybrid.

Last week my husband went to Harvey Norman for me to get some ink and came home with an A3 printer. Way cool!!! So on Sunday I printed out one of the frames and did this page of my sister. It's of her graduation from Law, which must have been 2 years ago now, and I've wanted to do a page for her for ages.

Love the frame and the flowers...not totally sold on the page tho. I've never really been able to get into the circle thing on pages...my OCD and straight lines playing with my head :)

Cause I had the urge

That's why I made this card. Was so tired last night but just needed to get in my little room for a bit. I had this image that I'd coloured the other week so it was only a quick 15 minute throw together card but am happy with how it turned out. I also had a new cuttlebug folder that I was busting to play with.

I can't believe it

...the weekend is almost over. It's just flown.

I can't show yet what I've been working on this weekend so I thought I'd pop this little popcorn bear card that I made last weekend here...bit of a simple one.

Enjoy what's left of your Sunday.

I remembered how to scrap!!

Again, it's been ages since I did a layout.

It started with having to put one together for a class for this years Crop 4 a Cause day held by Chandon Craft....must have caught the bug again, cause I did 3 pages. 3 pages!!!! I can't even manage to get that many done at an all day crop :)

This first one I did start weeks ago and kept pulling it out and fluffing around with it. Bit the bullet today and stuck everything down. Used gorgeous Webster Pages.

I love this page. I so love all the papers that I've used and am way too in love with all the gorgeous prima flowers around at the moment. Again this is Websters Pages and I've added it to an October Afternoon page and also a Pink Paislee paper, pulled out the distress inks and got my fingers dirty. The little word highlighted in green says 'ever'.

I can definately see that my style is changing again. Keeps things interesting :)

I got so excited...

when I got to work last week and was given some Hanglar Stanglar stamps to borrow.

I know that I'm easily excitable but those from the stamping world will know how hard these little cuties are to get your hands on. They are only sold in the little country they are made in :)

I got them from Vickii (and no, that's not a typo, she's very unique) who has just started a blog. Bout time, cause I have nagged her a little about it.

Have u had a good weekend?

I have had a 3 day weekend and loved every minute of it. Full of shopping, sleeping and heaps of craft.

Topped off tonight with lasagna for dinner. I bought a pasta machine a couple of months ago. I christened it 2 weeks ago and made fettuccine. I hadn't realised how much trouble I would have with the dough but the taste was so worth it.

I decided today I would pull it out of the dark corner of the cupboard I'd shoved it in, to make my lasagna sheets. I think I've mastered it! In about a third of the time and a quarter of the mess than the first attempt, I made enough sheets for tonights dinner and had enough left over to make fettuccine for tomorrow night. Mmm, and it tasted really nice too.

So I've finally come to the realisation that I'm addicted to stamping. I can't stop colouring. I have so many gorgeous stamps now that I'm having trouble keeping up with them all.

These next 3 are all popcorn bear ones and I've done them as a gatefold card - another new fave thing of mine and really easy to make.

and look what I won this week from Kellies blog for the sketch challenge that she had running. Go and have a look at her gorgeous work, check out the Tilda cupcake she's made. Very special :)

I've got heaps more to show from this weekend but am sick of sitting here waiting for my net to upload everything. Will post again during the week.

Do Crafts are now available

from Chandon Craft. I got this gorgeous little Daisy and Dandelion stamp free with a copy of the Do Crafts magazine.

I've made a gift card holder for christmas with it. Very easy and the slide out card was made with the cricut machine.
