Create...

Hi friends.  Today I have a mixed bag of news to share!  LOL!  There is so much happening all at once, I'm not sure if I am Arthur or Martha!  hee hee...  But I guess I'll start with the easiest. 

This is a little "toot".  Today is the release date for the new issue of Scrapstreet.com, an online scrapping magazine.  A few months ago, one of the writer's asked if I could contribute to her article by creating a "top ten" layout specifically about journalling!  I was absolutely thrilled.  Swamped of course with plenty of DT commitments, but when has that stopped me before! And if you know me... well... journalling is a big part of what I want on my layouts. 

This is what I managed to create...

[10  truly amazing things about you]


I really enjoyed the process and concept behind this layout.  It will definitely be fun to create a similar one in 12 months time!!!

In other scrap-related news...

I am very excited to share with you all, that I am a new Design Team member with this wonderful US family based manufacturer... "Pretty Little Studio"!  YAY!!! They are fun and funky and a little bit retro and I LOVE what they offer!  I am one of 8 new members and completely shocked that I managed to get on the team!  LOL!  You can check out the other fabulous and hugely talented dt members in the announcement here.



I cannot wait to play with all these fabulous goodies!!!!!

At the moment we are still in Canberra.  This morning we woke up to this!!!


There was frost everywhere!!!  Pretty to look at but OMGosh!  Fffffrrreeeeeezzz-ing!!  Right now, it is minus 1.6 degrees!



But after the shock, we managed to go to Questacon today where the kids - all nine of them - had a fantastic morning learning about what science can offer....(and those of you who are new to my blog, please note that only four children out of the previously mentioned nine children, are actually mine!  LOL!  Three families travelling together raises some eyebrows!!)



We also visited the Royal Australian Mint and saw the process of how the Aussie dollar is made...



...And we finished the day off at Parliament House...


Yep.  Another busy day on the road.  Tomorrow we pack up and travel towards the Blue Mountains.  Woo Hoo!  Thanks for visiting...x
