Three faves of mine...

FAVE NO. 1: The latest issue of CK (Creating Keepsakes)'s totally FANTASTIC!!!! If I sat here and picked out all of the things I adore in this issue, I'd be here forever, I think LOL :D. The Christmas ideas (especially the "Bling Bling" article) are fabulous...but my absolute faves are Elsie's new layouts (of course, hehehe). Can't beat this mag...IT ROCKS!!!!!!

FAVE NO. 2: This accent that I created for the SM Masters comp this year. I keep it in my box full of KI goodies (see my earlier post)...there it sits, waiting to be placed onto a layout for my Lachie. I ADORE this little thing and it was so simple to make!

Here's a pikki of it all closed up...

...and opened to reveal the journaling and accents (it swivels around on the blue brad on the front of the accent)...

...and here's a close-up of the journaling...

Now I am feeling all inspired to add it to a layout! Look out for it soon ;P

FAVE NO. 3: My relationship with my Mum. We are so much more like friends, seriously. She's been working so hard lately - she's a nurse too, nurse manager at the Hervey Bay Hospital in fact - so we are all off to her place tomorrow for some well-deserved quality time. I scrapped a layout about her and I last night but the light was wrong this afternoon, so no photo yet. Hopefully I'll get to post a photo tomorrow.

And please everyone, check out a post by Nicole Finlayson on her blog (link to the right) about the "real meaning" of Christmas. She's a fantastically lovely person, and a fabulous scrapper to boot, and has a really timely message here that I think you all should read.

Thanks for looking, everyone!!!!

Fantastic.....accent it is so beautiful and the choice of colour hope that one of the mags will publish this. Hopefully the lady will make up her mind sooner so you can move to the Bay.
