I have been looking to buy the 52 scrapbooking challenges book for a while now but i can't quite justify spending the $50 + australian to buy it. My birthady is in 2 week's and i was going to spoil myself but spending that much on a book is an unreaalistic purchase atm. Is there anyone out there who would like to sell a second hand copy or know where to buy one that is cheaper than that.
Leave me a comment if you can
Todays Photo.....................love you so much right now ruey.......the clock is ticking untill 1:15 when coby is at kinder and i can get my greys anatomy fix.............YAY
I actually created this Lo for a challenge on the Scenic Route Website they have monthly challenges and this month's is using the background papers. Wish me luck.

Why you ask?
The lovely pip prosser has started a 365 day photo challenge. The idea is to take a photo of yourself every day for a year. These photos don't have to be of you head they can be of any part of you. Are you up for it?
I love this scarf i bought if for my grandma about 6 years ago when in true grandma style she saw my one and needed to have one too. She was so like that, she needed to have everything she wanted...no...NEEDED and had to have these things yesterday. HUM this is my daily struggle........i miss her more than i could have ever imagined......crying now......this post was not supposed to be sad. But i haven't expressed this at all ever......2 and a half years and it harder than ever. Well she is close by today keeping me warm! :(
So hard when you put together a post then add photo's add extra comments and then you have feelings you didn't think would occur and then want the post to flow.
Here are my DT LO.
there is one more and ill add it later.
thanks for visiting

I love this little inspiration book. I have embellished the cover inside cover and the back and the back cover.
Close up of the coverThe inside cover where i will copy down quotes (bit blury...sorry) The back inside cover where i will write title ideas and sketch Lo ideas. I thought it would be an easier reference to set it up this way so i can find the quotes and title ideas seperate.
This Lo came to be at about 3 in the morning when i was looking through the autumn leaves TEXT book...its so awesome and inspiring. Im really into Lo's with clean simple lines at the moment.I love this pic of coby at the beach toes in the sand.
Another pic from the beach this is of coby and jamie(jody's son) Once again a simple Lo and this was the 1st Lo i created for the weekend. It was so good having jody's sewing machine there it is such and awesome machine that i used it on almost all of my LO.
I just love this LO used the junkits extreme boy transperancy ribbon and one of the tiles (thanks for sharing jody) I had wanted to use the heidi journelling spots like this from the moment i saw them i was just waiting for a photo to match and this one surely does.
The title reads....I LOVE YOU everyday.
Sorry about the photo of this one i accidently erased the better one. You can't really see all of the doodling on the Lo but i drew the arrows and he circles around the photos and used coloured pencils to colour it in. LOVE these photos of coby. I used american crafts foam thickers for the YOU and 4 they look so good im totally addicted to buying them.
I know a girl LO! I got a friend to email me photos of his baby girl Zayah she is so cute. I really enjoyed creating this Lo and the Heidi swapp Lge photo corner just makes it.
Another Lo of zayah. Wendy from Paper doll gave me these papers on the day before i left for the retreat a just had to use them with the photo's of Zayah. they are all double sided and there are 4 ranges with about 8 papers in each range. they are EK success ...stacy claire boyd and there are also some awesome green, blue and brown papers in the series too. I layered the flowers once i mounted them on chipboard, a bit of sewing, many many diamontes and lot's of scalloped edges. Love the heidi damask sticker and the lil davis chip frames.
I also created a card with some of tthe left overs. Wendy and paper doll also gave me the buttons to use they are so sweet. Love the chipboard butterfly from deluxe designs (plain Jane's). I am also very addicted to the carolees creations letter stickers they are so convenient to use.
So all in all the weekend was very productive.Ill post more Lo for the 2nd fireside crafts Kit take a look the link is in the side bar >
Thanks for stopping bye and please keep leaving comments love reading them and it helps with my curiosity because i have had so many visitors in the past few months i like to know why you all are.

Her double layouts are amazing even though i never do doubles i still find alot of inspiration from her cut and paste layouts.
Also have a look HERE
GI Gi kenedy has some amazing Lo as well instant inspiration!
TADA here are my 2 most recent LO
These photos were taken in January 2007 at the rosebud carnival. Coby just loves the dodgem cars. I have been using scenic route ALOT so my challenge is to move away from scenic route and experiment with other suppliers more.i think it's just the bold colours scenic route use and they are just so easy to use when scrapping boys.
I just love this BAM POP paper it was really easy to work with and matched so well with these beach photos of Coby ad Jody's son Jamie. I added the brads at the last minute just to lift it a little more.
I created this Lo a little while ago and i am not sure if i like it or not.
I used the jenny boulin papers i got from Paper doll scrapbook boutique about 2 months ago. I also used a stencil to create the semi circle and sewed the tear drop shapes with matching thread to the machine stitching that i used for the border for the small sheets of paper. I just love love this photo of coby and know it will be one that will be scrapped again.
I taught my first class in months on Thursday night at Paper Doll and it was great the girls were all fantastic to teach and can you believe it 9 people attended. It was great to see the ladies madly cutting the scalloped edges, sorry again ladies.(there were some sore fingers by the end of the night.
I was also interesting to hear the very loud reluctance to doodle on the pages, lots of the 'students' decided to purchase rubbons to use instead and some ladies also took photos of the book to copy the doodles at home. It was so much fun. Can't wait to teach again at the end of June. have a look on the paper doll blog for class information...see link in the side bar.
I would also like to say thank you to all of the people who have commented on my blog especially about my health. I am feeling heaps better now mainly thanks to the multi vitamins i am on and the inner health plus capsules that i take daily.
thanks for visiting my world and don't forget to leave a comment i love reading them just as much as blog stalking and i have been doing that alot lately!
