RAK winner..

Just a quick note to let you know who won the RAK I offered for those leaving a comment after my white inks post.

CONGRATULATIONS......... Josie!

I will get something off to you this week hopefully. I think I still have your address in my pile of paperwork.

This week has been totally crazy with school swimming, parent/teacher interviews, footy trial matches and training underway, amongst a few other things. It has taken me a few days to get to the computer. I do have a few shares from the Scrap of Difference CC but they will have to wait for the weekend now. Have a good one everyone!

More scrapping...

A few months back, Mistra wrote up a tutorial for some "dodgy" flowers, or so they got called and it seemed like I was the only one on the forum that hadn't tried them. So, I decided that last week I had nothing to do at my craft morning so picked up some paper scraps, various sized flowers, some glimmermist and scissors and played ...... Well it took me two hours (talking included) to create these rather large numbers... but I do like them. Just have to find something to use them on now. Thanks Mistra for the tutorial.


This month I thought I would start the month off well by completing some challenges at the beginning of the month rather than rushing them at the end of the month. So, using the lovely Colorbok papers that I received in the big kit a few months back I created a few layouts for the month. So to start with is a Pagemaps sketch that Ingeborg has for her challenge on her blog this month and it is a layout of my boys on their tenth birthday.


Ingeborg also has a…

White inks..... which is your favourite?

The other morning at my ladies craft we were discussing using white inks and how difficult it was to find one that stands out well on dark cardstock. I asked this question a couple of years ago on a forum and got told by many that the Brilliance Moonlight white was the best on the market. I purchased it and whilst it does give and okay image I have never been entirely happy with white stamped images unless I emboss with white embossing powder. I have purchased another couple of inks in the last twelve months, the Stazon Opaque cotton white - which I find useless for what I want it for and the Versamagic Cloud white chalk ink.

As you can probably see from the images below I prefer the Versamagic to play with.

I would love to hear the opinions of others who use white inks and what their preferred one is..... so, if you leave me a comment about your favourite white ink by the 20th of March, 2010 I will put your name in the hat for a random draw for a surprise RAK......

Can you believe it, …

Well after a weekend with a summer cold the other week, I am almost back to normal besides a blocked ear that is more annoying than sore.
We have had a musical couple of weeks with Mitchell commencing guitar lessons again this year and starting drum lessons..... thank heavens it is only using a practice pad!
Ethan has started saxophone lessons, an intrument that I never ever mastered. He still has it sounding like a sick cow at the moment but seems to be getting it a little better after his second lesson today. Keelan is into his third year of keyboard lessons and continues to improve well.

I have managed a couple of extra of Fab's challenges in the last week and still have more to catch up...... Funny how that happens when he adds one a week and I miss visiting the blog from time to time.
