Now I could or would not leave town and not make sure I had some eye candy for you all to look at while I’m in Canberra gawking at more eye candy!! I have decided to have posts automatically post while I’m gone (I don’t want a blemish in that record now!!LOL!
So while I’m away I thought I would show you the swaps I have taken to Convention. I used the Owl Together Now SS for this one.
Isn’t it just adorable?? Now just because I’m away doesn’t mean I don’t want any comments. I love comments, so please leave them for me to come back and read.
Don’t forget to leave more comments for the BLOG CANDY!!
I’m running out the door as I type this to take my kids to dance!! I hope you like this one………
P.S I will post all the candy added to the loot on Monday!!
…or I will not be ready and packed for Canberra! I have been busy today doing computer work and sorting my wardrobe to see what clothes I will be taking to COLDCanberra!! LOL!! I am half packed at least. Hopefully I will have the rest done by tomorrow. Or maybe I will take that trip to Toowoomba I need to do before I go. Who knows what I will do….
Now for show and tell-
I got the idea for this card from Splitcoast Stampersand the designer was hapablap. I need a little more practice at water colouring but I think it is getting there! I really love simple cards, but I seem to struggle with them. Splitcoast stampers is a awesome source for a huge range of styles and designs. I’m always on there.
Now for a BLOG CANDY UPDATE!! You all deserve a pat on the back. Not only did you name five of the colours used but you named all the colours I used. Awesome work guys! Now for a pic of the goodies added to the loot-
I’m sorry, but it is a bit of a crappy photo. But I’m sure you can see what it is.
- Spring Solitude SS (lightly used & mounted)
- Kaiser Rhinestone Script Word, Love
- MM Twistel, Lime
- Once Upon A Scribble, Poetry Petite
Wow!!! this Candy bag is getting quite BIG!! Especially when I have 6 more days to add to it!! LOL!!
So keep the comments coming. The more I get the more you get, also the more chances to win!
This set is sooo cute! This particular card was made when I first received all my new stamp sets from the new catty! So what do you think?
Now onto BLOG CANDY!! Unfortunatley we didn’t get the 20 comments to achieve another stamp set, BUT I am have a new challenge for you all so we can get that set into the LOOT. I want 5 different people to name ONE (only one) of the SU Colours used in the above card. Everyone has to submit a different colour to eachother. I know I used more than 5 colours, so it should make it easy for you. You can name any of the colours used. But remember you can only name one each!! So to higher your odds on winning the candy please submit your comment under the 30, 000 hits post dated Tuesday 21st April 2009!! Now for what has been added to the stash tonight-
A vestibule of Queen and Company Beadifuls, Pinky Swear,
It will go with those Ribbons quite well….lol!
I bought these papers when they first came out. They are part of the Night Light collection from October Afternoon. I love their stuff for scrapping the kids. The texture and designs are just beautiful! Go check them out if you haven’t already.
On to today’s add on to the BLOG CANDY!! It is a little quiet on the comment front today! If I have another 20 comments by 8pm (AEST)tomorrow I will add two Yep that’s right TWO things to the goodie pile. But the catch is that the comments have to be from twenty different people. If you have already placed a comment before this post you can add another one and it will be counted as part of the 20!!! If I get a good response I might put in another STAMP SET……. I have a heap of retired sets sitting here just aching for a new home!! So don’t be shy, say hello and leave a comment!
What we have here is a collection of 6×6 Patterned Paper
- 5 MM Boho Chic, Olivia
- 5 MM Cheeky, Abby
- 4 K&Co Tim Coffey, Birthday
Got to love PP. This lot is perfect for cards. Do you like these? I have more to choose from.
I have a blemish in my record! I have posted everyday for just over 2 weeks straight and then whoops….. I miss one. Oh well, I’m sure you will forgive me on that! Especially if I put in extra BLOG CANDY!!! That’s right you heard me right!!! I’m going to add three things into the Blog Candy Bonanza! But first I want to show you all this.
This is a great little tool for booking workshops. When someone decides they would like to book, they can choose one of the flowers with a flap, and under that flap is a prize just for them. I will then present it to them at their workshop! I loved the idea when I first saw it all those months ago, but just got busy and said “I will get to it”. How many of you say that? I say it all the time…lol.
So here is the BLOG CANDY I promised you all-
This is what I found-
- A2Z Scraplet heart (chipboard)
- Heidi Swapp 4XL photo corners, Pink Dot
- Assorted lot of Prima Flowers
This will be added to the stash and don’t forget to come back tomorrow to see what else will be on offer! If you would like to win my 30,000 hits Blog Candy then go to the post dated the 21st April 2009 and leave a comment.
It’s as easy as that!
While I’m away at Convention, it is my son Sean’s 11th birthday. Oh my gosh! They grow so quickly don’t they?! For his birthday this year and because I am going to hate being away from him I’m going the extra mile to make it special. Hubby is taking him to the Air Show at Emu Gully on his birthday and when I get back Sean and I are going to the movies together for some mum and son time. And of course presents! A bought one and a made one! He loves the game Tic Tac Toe and Kaiser has just bought out an OTP version. I just finished decorating it yesterday.
Here is a pic of the outside-
Here is one of the inside-
He is going to love it! I had so much fun putting it together and I think it turned out quite well! How many of you ave done a Kaiser OTP project?? All products used are Kaiser.

P.S I will be adding heaps more to the loot before draw date!
Now to win these gorgeous goodies all you have to do is
- Leave a comment telling me what is your favourite thing out of the candy being offered (on this post only).
It is as simple as that! Oh and I am offering this worldwide! So don’t be shy, you have to be in it to win it. I will upload photos regularly of items I am adding to the candy loot daily. The more comments left the more candy I add! So get the word out and let everyone know about it! You can even put a post on your blog and link it back here!
These photos are a couple years old, but the LO itself is only a few moths old. The card stock has shown much brighter than it actually is but I’m sure you get the idea. My little darling made this bonnet all by herself for the Easter Bonnet Parade at her school. My favourite part would have to be the cute little chick on the front (check out the close up), he is sooo cute. These papers are DCWV and I used co-ordinating colours from the Core’dinations Card stock collection. The title was done with Thickers and chipboard which I painted and glittered.
So what do you think? She is sooo cute hey?!
Anyway, I better get moving and cook some dinner, but come back tomorrow as there will be BLOG CANDY posted here in the morning! Just as soon as I get a pic of it. I’m pretty sure you are going to love it.
Here is a cute little layout I did for a workshop a little while ago. It was also a challenge by my friends. See, I had yet to do a double layout using wholly and solely SU stamps, CS and DSP. Anyone who knows me knows my scrapping style or even if you have looked at previously posted layouts that they are not quite the same.
So what do you think? I’m quite proud of it and the girls loved it. They even wanted to do another one, which ended up being the Tonka truck layout I previously posted. I should get my act together and organise another one for the girls. I might do a layout with cupcakes (hint, hint Kolina….lol). I will probably organise it for May, just after I come back from convention. I suppose I better get the boys Birthdays out of the way too…..hehe!
