Funny Foto Friday - Of Chocolate Chip Cookies and the Melbourne Storm

Funny things are always happening at my house. Especially at night.
Boy did I get a fright this morning when I walked into the kitchen, still half asleep, and for just a moment thought that was a huge RAT on my kitchem bench!!
But no - it was only Storm Bear. Trying to open a packet of chocolate chip cookies.

Why the knife you ask?
I asked him the same thing.....
...his answer..??......
...."no opposable thumbs!!"

Bling for a King

This one's a bit overdue, but I had to share...

When I unwrapped my stash of TPC Studio's Grandma's Attic collection...especially when I saw the gorgeous chipboard mirror stickers...I just thought, "ooh yeah - Hall of Mirrors, Palace of Versailles". Good thing I'd been there in my past, huh!?

Well, those pics were just calling out for all the bling, weren't they. That's a bit of Rainbow Sticky Bling at the top left hand corner.

Now the Tattered Angels say that "anything is mistable" and I have to agree!
Here I have misted some white paper daisies using Glacier Glimmer Mist.
Pinned them to the page with my awesome NEW (! yay!) Flower Pearl Brads (and a cute little rhinestone brad from my personal stash). How pretty is that!?

I let loose with the flash on this shot to get the full effect of the mirror...

LOVE the Grandma's Attic collection. This page background is the reverse side of "Collectibles".
And the mirror is from the Grandma's Attic Chipboard Sticker Pack

Royalty on a page!

Are YOU a Scrapbook Tragic?

I'm still laughing....Got an email yesterday from a man who had just discovered my website and was about to show it to his wife. He described her as a 'Scrapbook Tragic'. Well, there's a bit of the tragic in all of us isn't there? What's YOUR scrapbooking addiction? Me..? PATTERNED PAPER!

Simple Stories - Elementary. Gotta...Wanna...Have it!

Yep, I LOOOOVE patterened papers. I see a new collection, go all "ooh, pretty" and I've gotta have some. I have way too many sheets of paper than I'll ever know what to do with but I can't help it. Hey, one day I WILL have just the right photos that need to be scrapped on that really obscure sheet that luckily I put away before the whole collection went out of print and now I have the only one left in the whole wide world!! lol

Until then, can I paraphrase and bastardise something I once read in one of those 'quote a day' calendars:- You know you're getting old when you realise you're going to die before you get a chance to use up all that paper you've been collecting!!!!

So - What's YOUR Scrap Vice?

Secret Pockets and Other Fun Things

I love to have little secret messages, pockets and fun bits on my pages.
Here I used the MiJeMoo Personalised School paper from Winston Heights Primary School to make a half page pocket (simply use Xpress It tape (or your favourite adhesive) to stick down the bottom and side edges and voila!

Embellish the pocket - or keep it simple with just a matted photo - and you have a perfect space to store those bits of memorabilia that you don't want to be gluing down in your scrapbook.

Or use year and colour specific MiJeMoo School Days paper - heaps of these pages are now in the Clearance Aisle of my website for only $0.60 a sheet! Here's the Year 5 in Darks Green....

Rainy Days

I don't know what it is about my family, but all we need to do is say the work 'barbeque' and it starts to rain!
I have a great collection of indoor rainy photos that were supposed to be outside days.
Here's one  - Fathers Day 2005. We planned a 'b'-word so of course it rained cats and dogs...and water too! What can you do?!

At least it presented a great opportunity to try out my new silver raindrop brads.

Also in that pic is a blue umbrella brad. Aren't they just so cute?

The 'Fathers Day' I wrote using My Little Shoebox Sprinkle Glaze Stickers. They are so great when you want all of the glitter with none of the mess!

Also in that layout - Little Yellow Bicycle (Generation Z) paper, and other bits from my personal stash :)
