Some Sad News

Received some sad news about a great friend that I have met throughout the Forums.

Thinking of you Pretz on the sad loss of your dad.

Sending you lots of love and big hugs.

Your friend Sandie

JUST HAD TO BRAG.................

I thought this news deserved its own POST........................I made the cover of Australian Paper Crafts Magazine Issue 66. I was stunned when I dropped into the newsagents today, just went to pick up the paper for Sean and thought I would see if the latest issue was out yet. Sure enough there it was. I knew I was going to be in this issue, just not on the front cover. My little heart was beating out of control. Very chuffed.
When I receive my free copy of the mag I shall pop a photo up on my blog.

Thanks for listening girlies...........luv Sandie

Life Has Been Rather Busy

Well, my life has been rather busy lately.............can't really put my finger on what.......I just know I've been flat out!!!!!
I have been creating some projects for Australian Paper Crafts mag for Christmas, I have submitted them so am waiting to hear from them as far as publication goes.
Fingers crossed.
The kids got their Term 2 School Reports today which were great - just have to work on Tammy's chatting in the class, otherwise all cool.
Looking forward to the school holidays - the kids finish up at 2.10 tomorrow so that will be nice to start winding down a little.

Hope you are all well.

luv Sandie

The Things That Make Me Go Hmmmm

I ran out of room for comments by the time I uploaded all the photos so here it goes.

I saw this paper bag album idea on an american site some time ago and have always wanted to give it a go. So after some frustration of trying to work out the folding idea I completed this little album yesterday. It was reasonably easy to put together.
It contains just some of the things that I luv. Ribbons, ric-rac, buttons, suffolk puffs, fabric, felt, doodling, stamps , flowers, brads, tags, cakes, apples...... I really had lots of fun making this and keep picking it up for a little look - it makes me feel happy.

My Little Paper Bag Album - "The Things That Make Me Go Hmmmm"

My Little "Love" Album

This is a little album I made using the outer
chipboard frame from the large Heidi Swapp
chipboard letters. I had used the innter letters
for a layout and had the rest leftover and thought about turning them into a mini album.
I used different coloured paper behind each letter and then added basic grey "phoebe" pp and then embellished to the max. For the reverse side of each letter I added the BG pp and then popped a few different embellishments over this. In the "l" picture it shows the book being bound by the ribbon - I have since changed this and popped a couple of rings through and then tied the ribbon on - that's working a lot better
now. Thanks for looking.
