I have another love ☺

I just can't help it.  
Everything is too pretty!

I bought myself a Silhouette Cameo machine and OMG!  love love love.

This is my first try with it and so love the silhouette images.  I so love the 
clean cuts this machine gives.
and I so love that I can purchase individual images
and they're available as I buy.

My first card here is a pretty simple one, a few distress inks in the 
background, a splash of water and my cut image.
The little butterflies are from a MFT die.

Clean and simple.

I had an awesome week last week.  My excellent machine arrived.
Also, the week before I submitted a few pages to my fave mag and I
got 3 acceptances.  
Was very excited.  
I haven't submitted for a few years cause last time I was doing a
 bit in the mags and some DT work I lost my
mojo and I blamed it on losing my reason for scrapping. 
 It lost it's enjoyment.
Anyways, over that now and thought I'd try again.

I have done heaps of crafting lately and every time I get better at keeping my
blog up to date, I let it lapse again.

At the moment I'm taking part in Scrapbooking Top 50 Race Around the World.  
It's quite different than any other challenge I've taken part in and am
loving it.  Will post my first 2 entries up here in the next couple of days.

I'm also doing an ATC swap with Aussie Scrappers Society and I have not 
made one of these for ever!
I forgot how much fun they can be once you
get an idea in your head.  Can't post picks of
that one yet though.

I've tried some mixed media cause loving
all the prettys everyone's making, and although not really happy 
with what I'm doing, I'm loving playing.  I'm loving it so much
that I've just booked in at A Scrappe Angels Heaven to do 
4 classes with Finnabair in March. 
 That's a bit exciting too ☺
