2014.............when did that happen???

wow.............when did 2013 finish? it flew past, especially the last month or so.

This is a short Happy New Year post to you all and a wish for lots of happiness, good health and fun for all....may the karma you deserve come back tenfold to you this year!

I am not going to give any kind of promises to make more blog posts or such, but i will promise to try ;)

This is a big year for me personally and for my clan too.....this year we will experience the world a little with an overseas holiday, I will turn the big 50....and its time to rethink some priorities in this world we share. 
Scrapbooking Delights will be a major part of my world, and I hope to see many of you there to share the love of our chosen craft.
Through 2013, lessons were learnt that left scars in my heart, but i also many smiles from friends that have seen me though some rough times personally....and together we will see 2014 rocks!

I hope you make your 2014 a happy year

My word for this year is.......BREATHE......( this to make me not react until i take a minute to stop, breathe and then decide if its worth a reaction....then act)

Be back soon with some scrapbooking ( yeh me....i did a decemember daily and finished it) woohooo

been a while...its October!

hey all
i know its been a while...but hey, busy is an understatement!

anywhooooo....sharing a few from my shops retreat, where i could do nothing but be inspired by the ladies about me and their talent, so i actually scrapped.

This a mini polaroid of my friend Diana and I. I have used some of the new VIVA moulding creme with bubblewrap, added a few stamps and a little jute

 This is another of my very good friends, Jo. There is also a page floating about of my taking this photo that she scrapped. This was taken at Camp Mojo this year. 

 Again the bubblewrap got used, but with paint this time, a little H2O action and a leave branch from the garden. Thats a WOW mini wood veneer filmstrip.

 At the retreat this year, the awesome Lisa Oxley took to the grass and shared her love of colour with the ladies....

This page has WOW wood veneer clouds,  The blob in the centre is a dimensional texture paint through a WOW AltaMatz, and a little washi to finish it off

 Camp Mojo, was a fun trip away, both catching up and ,meeting some new faces. Here is a bunch of us in a photo booth that was set up.

Just used some old box inserts, white paint and H2O for the background. The 'laugh' is a WOW wood title.

 Growing up too fast...aint that an understatement. How fast the last 13 odd years has gone. I officially became the shortest in the house this year, as the POD now has about haf a head on me. lol. 
Its been a fun ride but!

This background is moulding paste through a WOW AtaMatz and adding a little sprinkle of embossing powder and a few flicks of dylusions. Thats a WOW wood paperclip and i broke the old dymo out for the title.

Seriously have fallen in love with the mini polaroids too.

 So folks.....thats gonna have to do for now.
dont forget to drop into the WOW blog for some awesome inspiration using chipboard.

a few from retreat

i am so very lucky to be a Scrap Girl ..and so i get to go away and play a few times a year with a group of chicks that i love...and a whole ever changing group of scrappers that are so much fun to spend a weekend with.

So....last weekend was spent at Castlereagh (near penrith), which i personally think is the best scrap retreat spot ever!....and here is a few pages

There is lots of fab WOW on these pages and the NEW AltaMatz too.

 Tom chasing me around Aldi...with mushrooms (im allergic)

 My baby turned 13 this year.....growing up way too quickly.

 That look I love....

 This is from the Challenge kit at retreat...this photo is of me and my scrapgirl sisters along with Peta, who has joined in the fun by bringing her shop now to our SG retreats.

 using the challenge kit of me and my baby brother

 More with that challenge kit...this is a photo of Liv and Ali at Christmas

 Lisa Warren who runs Inspired Blueprints did a sketch for my challenge at retreat, you will be able to find it soon on the blog, but here is my 2 samples from the retreat.
Inspired is an awesome place to go to look for mojo

this page is a snap of Ali, taken at Toms birthday

 another sample of the sketch. This is a close up of tom eating his fav fruit...watermelon

Then i got bored .... So I stole photos off people and scrapped pages for others. i love doing this, as I get to see new faces.

 This page is for Donna White...a photo of her and Peta MacBeth, they were celebrating Donna's birthday.

 Peg Graham went on a spectacular Japan. She has some fab stories to share and great photos. This is a group of dogs dressed up, in clothes!

 My friend Liz Bradley, gave me this photo of her on the front of a magazine cover. A friend of hers made this for her as a fun pressie.

 I did this page for Karla, its a photo of her hubby and daughter.

A page of the beautiful little Sam with her uncle at her birthday party. her uncle dressed up to be a pixie. Her mum, Michelle gave me this photo and i was so lucky because Miss Sam came at the end of retreat and got to help me with the journaling.

Thank you for dropping past

May has arrived.....

...and i find myself the mother of a teenager.

and for those ahead of me who have experienced this....i know you are giggling and for those who are yet to join me in this new 'interesting' phase of and learn. (on what not to do as usual with me) lol

In all seriousness, I have a pretty good option for a kid, he has his moments, but probably nowhere near as many as his mother!. Watching him grow into this (way too) tall teenager has been an adventure for sure.....with way more to come i bet.

Problem is, he is avoiding the camera, or when he does pose, its with attitude. Hence the new layouts you see from me will either be....great old shots, or new attitude ones with what we will call 'random' titles! ( i will try to be pc) hehehe

anyway before we head out for the teenager sharing a few layouts that i have done recently. Been a little slack, I have been SMASHing a diary, how much fun is this Smash stuff!

anywhoooo...over WOW , we have a month with WWI
here is my sample of white with yellow and WOW

and here is a few other layouts using WOW (of course) and some of the new product from my store Scrapbooking Delights.

this is a photo of my cousin Donna and I, my mum was a budding fashion designer back then and made us some awesome outfits. 
The cute butterfly is a WOW one.

Tom out the back hanging with his dogs, this photo was taken just before Dax died. Tom adores his pets and spends every afternoon, walking and hanging with them. I guess its an only child thing. He and Molly (the boarder collie) have been together since he was almost 3 and she was a pup, they are a pair of terrors and get up to some much trouble together.
The Scrabble letters are WOW

This photo was taken by  Lisa Oxley after the 'clean up crew' finished packing away the Savvy-Delights retreat last year. I am surrounded not only by extremely talented people, but also some of the people I count in this world as true friends.
The 'smile' is an AltaWord mask and the tiny filmstrip is from WOW

Thats it for this post..........thanks for calling in
Fingers crossed i can  grab a few happy birthday snaps today with POD and his mates, or I may have to start scrapbooking my cooking ;)

Here is a few new layouts to share:

There is lots of WOW to share

 My friends Marnie & Scott got married in January, awesome day, but to be honest the most fun was the preparation for the big day. Marn and I had a ball, puffing pom poms, winding string on bottle and finding lots of new ideas for weddings, yeh for Pintrest!
The 'love' is a AltaWord template and the chipboard title is WOW too.

 Rachel hits the big 40. A yummy dinner out with friends, cake and laughs.
The 'wire with butterfies' is a WOW AltaMatz and thats a WOW flourish.

 Proof of a brain! lol
Thats another AltaWord 'snap', and the filmstrip is WOW

 Tanya took this shot of POD holding a dried rat he found at Conjola....grub child!
WOW circle and corner added.

 POD and I shopping and he spotted a new store named after him lol
The title is done using a WOW chipboard word as a template.

 The yummiest icecream cake ever! made for chrissy at nans by Kim
Then I have used the chipboard that I used as a template for the above layout title, here as the title.

 Not much happening here...just hanging about the house
The "now" is an AltaWord, using guesso and ink to highlight., the ladder is also WOW

 This is POD at the end of year concert for Aspect.....Dance like everyone is watching, show them how it makes you smile!
The music embellishment is from WOW

 This is a lovely photo of Tom taken by Tanya.
