Changes are coming!

Cough...cough...sneeze! Excuse the dust!
Been a while since I've been here again, I think I am the worst blogger in history!
A lot of things happening this year, the main one being my return to uni to complete a Graduate Diploma of Education so that next year I can be a Primary School teacher.  It was quite a bit of getting my head around returning to study, but with the support of my wonderful family, I finished the first semester with flying colours. I have one week left of holidays before I start the next semester of craziness.
On to scrapping news - I have been freelancing this year as I couldn't commit to a minimum number of LOs a month as I've had to put study first.  But my very generous designers have been happy for me to do this so it's been great.
The sad news was the closing of Digiridoo Scraps last week. The 'Roo was my home for the last three years, I was there from it's inception with a number of girls from the old Snap' N Scrap site.
The good news is I will still be creating for Bree of Scrap'it Designs, who will be opening  new store soon.  And the lovely Aly of Truman Studio invited me to join her team, mainly for hybrid. Again, these lovely ladies understand my commitments are are letting me freelance for now. So I get to do what I love, when I can without the pressure.
Aly is at Two Peas in a Bucket and this week I have made a few things.

This LO is made using All About Me Boy and features my two older boys in a display of affection that makes all the arguing less significant!

I also used Pennants Template by Fiddle-Dee-Dee Designs, available at Scrap Orchard. The font is Rough Typewriter and I used Bittersweet Vintage photo action by Coffee Shop.

My beautiful sister in law had a baby girl two weeks ago. My kids are all completely in love with her already! Here is a LO of her with my daughter, using All About Me Girl by Truman Studio.

I used Third Time is the Charm 5 Template by Fiddle-Dee-Dee Designs, available at Scrap Orchard. Fonts are Love Ya Like A Sister and Rough Typewriter. Faded Daydream photo action by CoffeeShop.

While I was on a creative roll, I also made this name frame for my new niece.

All digital supplies were from All About Me Girl by Truman Studio. I will be back with a tutorial in the next few days.

I will also be having a blog cleanup and updating a few things, so bear with me while I do some spring cleaning!

Bye for now!

One Little Word for 2012...

My One Little Word for this year is Serenity -  "Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference'. 

I made a LO of my word using Vintage Berry by Booland Designs and Gimme Layers Vol.17 Template by Cluster Queen Creations:

This LO is also used for the January Colour Challenge at Digiridoo. Sarah Barber is the challenge sponsor this month, so be sure to come and check out her goodies!

The Design Team have done it again this month with their gorgeous collab Venice Vibes.  It's yours free with any purchase over $10 from the shop.

Here is a LO I did with it inspired by the song Shake It Up by Florence + the Machine.

Litabells Designs has released the fabulous Handmade Home this week at scrap Orchard.  I really love this kit!

Here is a LO I made with it about my Kaiserwood collection:
