Week 7 and other stuff!

Yes I know .... I am slipping but really I have been so busy playing catch up with my CT and ADSR scrapping, newsletter contributions, posting and all the family stuff sometimes it get a bit much and the last place I want to sit is at the computer in the evenings (my favorite time for blogging lol)! Home life has been especially busy this week with netball training, tennis, parent information nights, netball semi-finals (which Bella's team WON woohoo! into the Grand finals now!) and I have been busy at work too! yikes!

First of all here is my latest page for the project - I am just loving these templates of Leora's - so crisp and clean, it really makes it all about the photos and not a major scrapping exercise!

I'm so happy to be racing with ADSR season 5 with my BFF Deb and it was great fun to kick it off with this first challenge - about your partner. We had to scraplift a page of our race partner and make it all about her - so here is my page.

The next challenge was a bit trickier! It was courtesy of the Ar was to use 5 photos, one with the number 5 in a photo, 5 fonts/alphas in the title and 5 elements the same AND it had to be about what I love about ....... hmmm I had to pick my house because its number 5 AND I had five photos ROFL.

Here is my page - 5 things I love about ..... my house! Not terribly original but there you go ...

I have been such a bad CT member recently - I have only managed to get one page out so far this week for my dear Kate who recently created this way too cute kit - This Much


Heres my page - I love you this much ...!

On other news, I have had my very first page EVER published in a paper magazine - Australian Scrapbooking memories Vol 12 No 2 page 115!! I was just thrilled to bits to be asked by Annette to work with the digital kits that are being given away with this edition as a great promotion for digital scrapbooking!! The hardest part was only picking ONE of the great kits to use. I can't explain how thrilling it is to see a page in an actual magazine! I know I'm a bit over excited but the first time is always special right? I'm not even upset that they got my name wrong and I am apparently Amanda Cook *giggle* - but I know it's mine, my friends know its mine and that all that matters to me :)

Ok I still have loads of things to do so I had better wrap this up and stop yacking away. I'll catch you all soon!
