My first attempt at designing!

Woo hoo! Today I spent some time on my first ever attempt at designing.  Bree runs a Design Me This monthly challenge at Digiridoo Scraps, with fabulous, easy to understand tutorials and some great resources to use.  I've been meaning to do it, but today I made the time to give it a go before I got any further behind.  This is what I came up with, using a swatch from Kuler called Coffee and a Paper by Webchitect.

May's challenge
June's challenge

So I need LOADS more practice, but I really enjoyed it!
Not sure that anyone would want them, but you can download them here:

And check this out:

Here are a few of my LO's for the various challenges:

Tuesday Template Challenge - using Colors of Spring by KD Designs (Available here at Digiridoo Scraps) and template by Mychl's Flights of Fancy.

Journaling Challenge - using Moments by Cintia Tavares (available here at Digiridoo Scraps)

And here is a LO I did for Rachel's 21st LMAO!!! I used Tropical Daiquiri by Brianna Cox of Scrap'it Designs (available here at Digiridoo Scraps)

I also picked up the childcare photos of Ben and Rachel and our family photos this week, plus we've had Christopher's 6th birthday, so plenty to scrap coming soon!!!!

And just to tease you, Color with Caryn will be releasing a new kit this week called New Day, and it is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! Watch this space.....

Hybrid Gratitude Journal - June

Ready for the next installment of the Hybrid Gratitude Journal?  I have chosen Family (extended) as the inspiration for this month - I chose my Mum because I am so grateful to her! She provides every kind of support there is, has a wicked sense of humor and is my friend as well.  Love you Mum!

The digital supplies I have used are from A Vision of Beauty by Designs by Pebbles available at the Digiridoo Scraps Shop.  For all the details, check out the Project 12 forum here.

Thanks for looking!

Free Photo Editing Class...

Yes, that's right! Jessica Sprague is running a free Photo Editing class! Registration opens on the 22nd of July and having done many of Jessica's classes, I can highly recommend them.  Here is some info, and check out Jessica's website for all the details.

On to other news.  Last night, we had family portraits done - first since 2006!  I pick them up on the 24th, I can't wait! 
It has been a cold, miserable week in Melbourne, but nice to see some rain.  The windchill factor on the other hand was not so nice - so bitter and makes your eyes water.  So the scarves, beanies and gloves are out, and I have to allow an extra 10 minutes for the school pick up and drop off to bundle everyone up! But check out this awesome sunrise yesterday...

And some BIG NEWS coming from Color with Caryn....stay tuned!!!!!!!

I'll be back later with some LOs :)

A fabulous weekend!

The grand opening Cybercrop at Digiridoo Scraps, was a weekend chock full of scrappy goodness!
New friends have been made, Sharon (skyezac) is the new Bingo Queen in what must have been the closest bingo game ever and some awesome LO's have been posted in the gallery.
Here are the LO's I did as part of the fun.
This was for the Progressive Blog Challenge - hopped on the train and picked up all the great goodies!

This was for the Scraplift challenge hosted by Michelle, who even provided the awesome template.  All supplies for this are from Color with Caryn's All Boy Kit (check it out here).

This next one is from the Speed Scrap hosted by lovely Maz on saturday.  I have used the fabulous Spice of Life team kit, available here at Digiridoo Scraps.

And this one is from the Speed Scrap hosted by the talented Sarah Barber, at 6am our time! I was a little late for it, but I got there! I have used Enchanted Forest by Vicki Parker of A Work in Progress and Sara Belmont of Sweet Blossom Designs.

I can't wait for the next Cyber Crop - they will be held monthly so I will keep you posted! I wouldn't mind wearing the Bingo Queen blinkie myself......
