On-Line Classes

On Friday night I managed to sign myself up for 2 on-line classes!

The first one was at Craftin' In Style. This gorgeous LO was designed by Marni Telford. I purchased the pack and have used it for this class. The UL paper are so bright, and it was hard to find the right photo to use for the LO. Hope you don't mind Kay, but I love this photo of you and it has worked really well with the LO. Thank you Marni, the handcutting was hard work, but well worth it!

Chookscraps on-line class was a gorgeous LO by Scrapcat based on a celebration using multiple photos. We used out own supplies, and I didn't have the embellishments to go with the LO. This is the LO that I created, photos from Connor's fourth birthday. I just love the photo of Cameron and Connor. I am happy with how this has turned out. Thanks for a great class Fran.

Two of the Chookscraps monthly challenges......

First challenge was to scraplift a LO from the Chooks gallery. Rottnest Island is a scraplift of Lorraines gorgeous LO 'Collie'.
Swim like a fish, you had to get inspiration from out your was raining yesterday morning, so I have done a beach LO.

Chookscraps Girl Night In CC

What a weekend....... Girls Night In for work and the Chooks CC! Challenges, raffles, auctions, etc etc. Lots of fun, chatting and heaps of scrapping. All for a great cause, raising much needed funds for breast cancer research.

These are the LO's I scrapped for the Chooks CC..............

I'm a Chooks Design Team Member

OMG, its now official and I can TELL EVERYONE.........I have been offered and accepted a Design Team position on Chookscraps. And I wasn't even home and on-line when it was announced at the special Girls Night In Cybercrop. I was at a real Girls Night In with work collegues raising funds for Breast Cancer Research.

My first job as a DT was to complete the CC challenge, which is set my Chooks members. This month we had to complete a LO with buttons, sewing, painting (and not on chipboard) and with rub-ons. This is my LO that I did.....

Western Australian Holiday and Retreat

I had the best holiday. Spent the longweek at the Chookscraps Retreat at Evedon Park. Fantastic.......what a top spot to stay, the yummiest food, great company and scrapping 24/7 if you wanted to and of course "the shop". I produced 15 gorgeous LO's and a canvas. Check out my slide show.

After the retreat I headed back to Perth for a couple of days of sight seeing, doing tours of Perth, Freemantle and Rottnest Island.

This is Wellington Dam, just outside of Collie. I was told by the locals it was a must see! So much water, and here in the east we are in the worst drought ever!

Life sized bronze sculpture of a fisherman at the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour.
Gorgeous scenery from Rottnest Island.

There was plenty of quokka to be seen on the island......

I spent some on my free time at Rottnest on a joyflight over the Island. We were lucky enough to see a pod of humpback whales. These pics where taken from the plane!

This photo of Perth was taken from Kings Park...
