I'll Hang My Head In Shame!

It has been so crazy around here...I have a computer now and my blog is still being sorely neglected. Shame on me! I haven't been scrapping anything very interesting lately...just working on some Christmas presents. I tend to scraplift A LOT when I work on gifts for my family. Mainly because they all want EVERY picture they have ever taken put into a scrapbook. Are you kidding me??? My Mum literally dumped over 1000 pictures in my lap last year. So I sort and I scraplift. Does anyone else do this? Feel like you're cheating??? Here are a couple I did for my niece's book. She's 6 now and I'm working on her 0 to 5 year book. I'm up to age 3...go me go!



I scraplifted this font from Elsie Flannigan's "52 Scrapbooking Challenges". What a fantastic book! She has a stamp set like this that has just come out. I think it's so cute and funky for kids pages! I don't have the stamps so I just grabbed a pen and started drawing it up freehand. I know, shut up I'm getting so brave!


Skylar's first time roller skating. I am so sad that the roller rink is closed down now. It's part of my childhood! We used to live right down the block. I'm so happy we got a picture of at least one of the kids there. You can't really see the bling very well...the photo does not do it justice. I made my own disco ball!

Check out the FAB new members of the DT on the Pencil Lines website!!! It was so exciting waiting to see who would be chosen. And check out my cute self in the gallery! I know, the picture sucks but my computer was down when I applied...I didn't want to let that stop me! It was really fun and if I find other things that appeal to me as much (or more!) as Pencil Lines I won't hesitate to apply again!

Don't forget to give someone you love a big fat smoochie kiss today. It'll make you smile!

Hi, I found your blog via SISTv, I think the fact that you create pages for your family is wonderful so no need to hang your head in shame if you scraplift to do them. I think they are lovely.

Glad you are back up and running. I am enjoying your blog.

And I am loving the 52 Challenges book as well. I got it to help me improve and have been working my way through.
