Immunity last week and Eliminated this week...BUGGER!

Yep...you heard it. I was lucky enough to be given immunity last week in the AMAZING RACE at Mystical Scrapbooks, but then I was eliminated this week with the layout below.

The country was CHINA and we had to use a large photo, numbers and bling

This layout was for the final week at Passion 4 Fashion at Scrapboutique. The Era was 1970's. I got my inspiration from the Tupperware colours from the era and the brown flower tiles in our lovely decorated bathroom...LOL

A mini Challenge at HD Survivor Competition...to make a book mark with a quote about books/reading...here is my take

Scrappin Kids had their weekend Designer Challenges this weekend gone. This was my example LO for my challenge...altering 3 chipboard pieces in different ways. I used inks, rubons, and stamping as my altering techniques
We had a great time at the coast over the weekend, but I am very tired and I have so many commitments this week(work, family, medical, children, and or course scrapbooking), I dont know where I am going to find the time to fit it all in ....wish me luck!

I received the March DT Kit from Wicked Princess and LOVED it...the bright colours really suit my scrapping style at the Moment...I wasn't too sure about the SNORKEL range from Cosmo Cricket, but OMG...how perfect are they for these pictures of my gorgeous boys at the pool (theme and colour wise)

COOL IN THE POOL was created using BG Marakesh as the background paper, and several pieces of Cosmo Cricket Snorkel range.

This Layout PREPARE TO BE AMAZED uses the Snorkel papers as background and the Stamp included in the kit from Autumn Leaves

This Layout titled "AQUAHOLICS" is of Duncan and the boys having fun in the paddling pool. I have used BG Marrakech, CC Snorkel and the CC chipboard spinner card from the kit

Pop over to the store and have a Goosey Gander at the new kits for March. You are gonna love it
