Just playing around ....

Last week I was playing around with a new element pack from Kaye and I created this page for my B. When we went up to Bunya a few years ago (time flies!!) the house we rented had a pool table and the girls had a lot of fun playing with it ... what they lacked in talent they made up for in enthusiasm!!

I hope you are all having a great weekend .. its a bit hot and humid here but at least its not raining for a change :)

The word of the year is .....

A friend of mine (yes YOU Carol!) advised me to pick a word for 2011, something that speaks to me and that fits to where I am heading with my scrapping. She gave me this advice as I was struggling to find any JOY in my scrapping by the end of 2010. So over the Christmas period I sat down and gave Carol's very wise words some thought and I decided that I had way too much on my creative plate (so to speak) - I was trying to juggle too many things at once and it was playing havoc with my creative impulses. So I decided that my word for the year HAD to be .........

What followed was a period of tumultuous agonizing and then a few tears, and I then resigned from the Pickleberrypop's Creative Team and I have cut back on some of my other Scrapping commitments. Now I can spend more time creating for my individual designers AND spend more time with my family and less time on the computer.

Its about time I reclaimed my hobby for me and remembered its all about preserving the memories. Scrapping should be the balance between art and memory :)

Thank you Carol.

It's a little bit damp here

Yes Brisbane and SEQ is going under ....some people are really suffering and I am sending out my best wishes to all those experiencing difficulties, I wish you all well. But thankfully we aren't in any danger of flooding at my house - luckily we are on a hill so we are nice and safe as long as we dont want to leave! Going to work tomorrow will be interesting as the river is supposed to keep climbing and I work in one of the flood areas of Brisbane so I will have to let you know how that goes.

I managed to scrap! Yes I know it has been a while since I last scrapped but there you are ... better late than never I always say! Here is my page using the super gorgeous new kit by Flergs Freakazoid! Isn't it a fun kit?

Well I had better go and start dinner - Mum and my step-dad are stuck here in Brisbane with me as they are cut off from their home by flood waters - so I had better feed them otherwise I won't be a very good family flood evacuation center will I? lol
