New Work

This is what I have achieved so far this weekend, mind that it is only Sunday Morning and I have the whole day ahead of me!!!
Friday Night ... I finished Scrapbookers Challenge's LO in record time this week! I thought it was going to be a toughy but I sat down and it just hapened for me, I really love how it tuned out too

I also Finished My ATC Holder. It's ok, I'm not incredibly happy with the way I decorated it but I have decided I'll make one for each ATC swap I do since it was much easier to make than I thought. You can see how to make them here

So that is about all ... I do have a few bits and bobs to tell you about an up-coming Scrapping Weekend Getaway but I'll leave that for a bit later!

Fat Friday

For those of you who don't know I am a Pre-School teacher by trade, it's my day job! I work in the babies room with 5 teachers. It can get very busy in the class-room with all those babies and sometimes very stressfull especially on our busiest days like today when we had 17 1yr-2yr old babies and 3 under 1yrs. By the end of the week we are fried!! So someone introduced Fat Friday. We each have a turn to bring in the most yummy food to share to make the last day of the week bearable! Tomorrow is my first Fat Friday turn. Jason makes the best Carrot cake ever! I asked him if he could make one and I came home tonight to see these

They are carrot cake muffins with cream cheese icing! I've already had a sample taste and they taste great!! Can't wait to take them to work in the morning!!
Off to bed to dream about Fat Friday!

I just wanted to mention that the carrot cake muffins were eaten without a crumb left over!

LOTS to show

Ok last night I went to another Product Preview at NZ ScrapbookThree Bugs in A Rug range. I took along a couple of friends from work, Sofie and Taryn and of course Danice was there too. The Preview kit was a Memory Box. The paper was ADORABLE and I also adored the take home LO kit papers too Anyway on to the pictures ....

These are the little gifties we were given, the take home LO papers, my Boy Box Kit, and the Girl Box Kit I bought afterwards, I adored the girl papers so much and I couldn't do one for Riley only!!!

These are the papers I bought afterwards, The popcorn paper I have a LO in mind for so watch this space!!

The ever wonderful Danice got these albums for me on special at spotlight. She is too kind and generous, I'm going to repay her soon! Not sure how excactly yet but I'm thinking I might have a couple ideas up my sleeve!!!

Now over at Scrapbookers Challenge we just all recieved the ATCs from our very first swap and I am blown away!! I Love them!! These are the ones I recieved

and here are the ones I made, I can finally show you the WHOLE of them!!

Also in the box of ATCs I recieved was a little something extra from the lovely Kristine

Well I think that is about it!! I had a great Scrapping day yesterday!

Ruthies Layout

Jumping up and down!!!!

With so much excitement!!!
Let me tell the pre-story first ....

I have needed a travel tote for ages, I have nothing to carry my scrapping stuff in when I scrap elsewhere and I was searching around and totally fell head-over-heels for THIS
You know how you find something and you want it so bad that NOTHING will do except this, well that is how it was for me and the MM Runaway Roller. And it had to be the pink with the polka dot inside. And I almost died when I found it in the NZ Scrapbook store, the right colour both the roller and the matching shoulder strap tote then I almost cried when I saw the price tag!!! I didn't want anything else so I haven't yet bought anything....

Ok so my MIL in coming over from America this month! That is exciting enough (I adore my MIL) but today she called and said "The MM roller tote bag you wanted do you want it in pink or lavender?" I was blown away!! She is going to order one for me, and of course I said Pink please!!!
