My secret's out lol!

...well, here's my "big" news that I've been keeping a secret for the last couple of months - I am the Scrapboxx Guest Design Team Member for December!!!!! YAY!!!!! Like I said a while ago, not that big in comparison to others' news, but it is still a big deal for me! It's so thrilling to have Maria showcase some of my work for the month, and I really loved creating for her :D

Here's a pic of my first project, my Basic Grey Lunch Pail that I scrapped...I covered the box with scraps of KI papers and addeed some KI ice candy, prima flowers, and Elsie-inspired embellies to the outside. I decided to use the blank pages that come with the lunch pail kit to make a little book to sit inside the lunch pail in which I can record all of the things that inspire my scrapping, hence the title "Inspirations" on the book. Lol, went a bit crazy with the ribbons here :D :D :D The book is divided into sections titled "sketches", "products", "people", "words", "places" and "other bits"...each section contains blank pages for me to record the things that inspire me, be it in journaling or photo or magazine pic form :D I also attached a series of tags to the book, each showing a photo of me with a Heidi Swapp ghost letter stapled to each tag so that they spell k a r e n as you flip through them. It took me AGES to make, but I'm pretty happy with the end result :D Can't wait until I can share my other Scrapboxx guest dt projects with you all!!!

The Scrapping is going pretty slowly at the moment...busy buying things for the new house and doing my Christma shopping. I HATE leaving it until the last minute, but really had no choice this year with all of the dramas with selling the house! So Lili and I are hitting the shops tomorrow afternoon...Lachie is having a sleep-over at Poppy's (my Dad's) house, and Mark is going to do some jobs in the yard...and then we are off to the Chrissie Carols at the Seafront Oval tomorrow night here in Hervey Bay. It is due to storm though, so we hope it's not all washed out! Lili will be upset 'cos she loves to dance and sing...thinking of getting her into dancing lessons (nothing too formal though) as she'd really love it! So, things have been pretty busy here this week - lots of swimming in Mum's pool and at the beach lol ;D - and next week doesn't look like slowing down with Chrissie and the big birthday next weekend! And I have to make my rum balls and chocolate chrissie cake and finish off the shopping yet!!! OMG, I think I'll be worn out before then ROFL!!!!!
