You Know those Pizza boxes...

Well, here's a use for them! Jase is growing some lavender from cuttings and ran out of seedling trays - who needs em??!! So instead of saying to dh, here's another scrapbooking supply parcel or hiding it in the cupboard till later just say "hey, I got another seedling tray for all our fabulous plants" - do you think he'll fall for it?

Ah well - only doing a post to keep Vicky happy or is that my blog talking? LOL.

Off to a scrap retreat in Bannockburn tomorrow, can't wait though have a bit to get done and sort through tonight so I can actually get there in time!

Congrats to those who got onto the Scrapbooks By Design team WTG & fingers crossed for all who are entering the SE Dt call also :-)

see ya! Posted by Picasa

Back to Real Life!

It was nice while it lasted! Lazy mornings, no rushing off to school or Playcentre and cruisy days - just because we didn't HAVE to be anywhere! But all good things come to an end right??? Ethan and Katya were really happy to be back though E's a bit tired now. Check out the goop play above! Was great to see some of the children at Playcentre again though.

It's snowing outside. Not very spring like at all - huge blustery flurries! But I like snow, just hope the lambs and calves are ok.

Check out the DT's work from September at the Scrapbook Outlet NZ (go to the 'gallery'). Andrea said the newsletter is going to be out soon - stay tuned for the September 'Get Real' winner.

Only 3 weeks now to the Bannock Burn Scrap Retreat - can't wait. Going to have a cricut to play with from the Scrapbook Outlet & Meg from Scrapbook Essentials is coming too along with some of her goodies!

Waving goodbye to Jo from Up2Scrap as she's moving on to another role!

Better go send an email out for the Wakatipu scrap on Saturday night :-) Posted by Picasa

Cheese Rolls

Spread sliced bread with Cheese Spread (see below). Roll up. Toast in oven & serve hot. These may be frozen and heated when required!

cheese spread: 1pkt onion soup; 500g tasty cheese - grated; a 400g tin of evaporated milk; Put all ingredients in a saucepan and heat slowly until cheese melts and mixture thickens. Stir well. When cool store in jars in the fridge for sandwhiches etc or put in your cheese rolls!

Yep, the Up2Scrap Elite Design team has been announced - soo privileged & excited to be a part of it. Congrats to Donna, Rach, Lianne, Trina & Sue & thanks Steph & Jo for the opportunity:-)

We have been in Invercargill overnight - nice to get away even if it is only for a night!

We went to Queens Park & the Museum/Art Gallery today & the Art Gallery Cafe served these cheese rolls -yum! Such a lower South Island thing - but soo good! Posted by Picasa

Some Scrapping

Jase took this pic on a walk with the youngest two! This was done as part of a challenge at the Scrapbook Outlet's Cyber crop on Friday night - thanks for the challenge Lianne - we had to use '4' in it somewhere - whether the number or the amount of an item we put on it. We had to use red & we had to use paint!
I put this up as an example of using chipboard for the SBO crop on Friday night. We sing this 'finger play' at Playcentre at the end of sessions. Perfect for the photo!
This layout I did for the Scrapbook Creations 'my space' competition. I didn't win - hence I'm sharing it here LOL but my letter said I was in the top 20 of hundreds of entries, so I'll be happy with that :-)
I've also been working on my Scrapbook Outlet DT work for September (watch out for the newsletter next weekend....) & working on some cj entries. I have an ATC or 7 to make soon - have been procrastinating over this one as well as some FR cards - again, been putting them off - I'm such a scrapper LOL!

Ethan got his stitches out on Friday. Wasn't too keen on the nurse getting near his head though! He now has a big white patch that we are to leave on as long as possible as the nurse said 'he's a very active boy & we wouldn't want him to bump it again so soon'. She put the stitches on some paper & taped them on - i didn't ask her too -do non-scrappers collect this kind of stuff too? Along the 'active' vein...The Plunket nurse wrote of Ethan on Friday lunch time: "Ethan bright, active, happy, playful, talkative. with the 'active' underlined LOL.

Feel the need to scrap some more, so off to play! Posted by Picasa
