Who has a tween that loves High School Musical?

I know I do!!!! We have watched all three DVD's so many times I think they are almost worn out.

So the next instalment is Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure, just watched the youtube clip and it looks great, lots of pink frothy dresses, lots of Sharpay attitude and Miss Megs would like it NOW please. It is due for release at the end of June but if you would like to win a copy head over to Lisa Warren's blog and leave a comment to be in with a chance.

My Scraproom Rules

Because I really haven't been scrapping much at all I thought I would get involved in a comp to try and get me motivated again.

Scrapping Outback are running one at present called My Scraproom Rules, so I joined in. The first challenge asked for us to do lots of fussy cutting, distressing, use some chipboard and cut it up and hand make at least three flowers.

Talk about way out of my comfort zone, I do not make flowers, couldn't be bothered. I would rather rip open a packet of gorgeous Prima. I do not fussy cut, don't have the patience. So this whole challenge was a doozy for me. Needless to say I procrastinated big time, started last night and finally uploaded at 11.40pm with 20 minutes to spare. Talk about cutting it fine.

Anyways, here is my layout -

And lots of close-ups

Yep I handcut all those postage stamps. I have no idea what I was thinking, that was lots of fun (NOT!!!!).

So it's all over and done with and I'm happy with the end result, even though it is totally not my style.

The next challenge set by Trudi Harrison is up so head over and check it out.

Happy Mother's Day

I hope all you ladies had a lovely Mother's Day. We had a nice relaxing lunch with fish and chips down at Paradise Point, at the park on the Broadwater. It was lovely, the kids had a bit of a play and Ash and I lay in the sun for a while. Ash was taking some pickies of the kids and I and a lady offered to take a photo of all of us. I was so grateful, we never seem to get a family photo, so here we are -

No matching outfits, but a very treasured photo all the same. I think I could fix it by changing it to black and white which I may do to scrap.

Megs made a lovely card for me and Blake bought home a little pressie he bought me at Movieworld yesterday, a lovely crystal prism with my star sign. I was really surprised he actually thought of me while he was out having fun at a birthday party. Will wonders never cease - LOL. I am a tad proud of them both. I told Ash no pressies, I am desparately in need of a new camera, I have my eyes on a Nikon D7000, so I told him not to buy anything. I think I may save my birthday and maybe try for it for Christmas.

We ducked over to the factory outlets and did a spot of shopping and I did score a lovely top, dirt cheap so I couldn't leave it there. The kids got a couple of things as well.

I'll try and be back to post tomorrow about Creative Block, I had a huge three days and met some lovely people. Got some great pickies as well.

May Scrap the Boys challenge

This months challenge is to...


so here is mine, better late than never.......

It seems the latest fad for 10 year old boys is Beyblades. Blake is obsessed with them and spends all his spare money on buying different ones and taking them apart and making new ones. He loves to see which parts makes the fastest most attacking Beyblade, so hence my layout, he has a whole collection of them.

And here is a close-up

Thanks to Leanne Jago for giving me the rolled up newspaper, I quite like the effect.

So pop on over the the Scrap the Boys blog and post your entry before 31st May. Anna's Craft Cupboard and 2 Crafty are the generous sponsors this month.

Creative Block

Just a quick one, I just wanted to let you all know I am working over at Creative Block at Printblocks this week. Anyone going???? If so grab me and say "hello". I think I'll be helping out on the manufacturer's stands this time around, unless it changes. Can't wait to catch up with some scrappy friends.

Nothing to show, I am all scrapped out at the moment, far too busy with school hols etc. We have just had a long weekend up at Moogerah Dam. We packed up the carav
an and camped with some great friends. The kids had a ball on the tubes and kneeboards and Ash even got up on the wakeboard. Sigh....... I love two weeks of school hols followed by a long weekend. But back to reality now, work and school and the usual runaround. And hopefully some time for some scrapping.
