Week 12 already?

Hi and thanks for visiting.
Week 12 was an interesting week for me on a personal level as I started a new contract at work - that's the joy and the challenge of contracting......change can be quite frequent.  I used some wood veneer birds - think these were Tweet from Studio Calico on my title and another flair from A Piece of Cake Designs on a filler card.  As I wanted to stick to a palette of fawn and lemon I made a journal card using a Stamp from Technique Tuesday - the Good Day set from Ali Edwards.

The left hand side is fairly simple.  Photos of everyday life, some Seafoam journal cards and some homemade journal cards using, again, Technique Tuesday stamps.  The arrow one is from the Beautiful set by Ali Edwards and the round one as above.  Used orange card stock just to give a bit of pop to the page. 

 And here they are together.........a real snapshot of our life this week.

So that's what week 11 looks like.  Remember to leave a comment and get an entry into my "blog revamp giveaway".  Details of some of the giveaways will be announced soon.

The heat continues in Week 11....

It's catch up time with my blog posts.......thanks for taking a look at Week 11.

There was a lot of colour in my photos this week, so I used items from a number of kits and places.  My title card has a flair from and then I used some BH Seafoam journal cards together with an insert card from a Pebbles range of journalling cards (apologies, cannot remember which range).

The right hand side was more Seafoam with an Amy Tangerine layered camera embellishment and another filler card from Pebbles.  Love that this week has a photo from the Project Life Australia and New Zealand Victorian catch up.

And here is what the week looks like together.  When it's side by side you can see that I stuck mostly to the aqua and orange colours to try and give it a bit of uniformity.

To be in the running to receive a giveaway to celebrate my revamped blog just leave a comment under this post (and any future posts up to the 21st May) and to be in a special draw just start following my blog.

Revamped Blog Competition

Hi, and thanks for visiting.

About a month ago I started the Jessica Sprague "Bloom your blog" course to learn how to make some changes and give my blog a fresh new look.......cause we all need a makeover now and again.

While I learnt how to do some things, there were other changes I wanted to make that weren't covered in the course.  Step in a friend of ours - Duane from QuikTek Solutions ( - and my updated blog is now ready to share.

So what do you think?  Do you like the design?  The colours? I'm interested in your thoughts.

While I've been having the changes made bogging of my Project Life has, of course, taken a back seat. But I have all the photos ready for a few weeks and will start creating the posts later today.

To celebrate the new look I will be having a number of giveaways.  These will range from gift vouchers for a few of my favourite suppliers, to embellishment packs based around what i am using this year in my project life.
How do you win? Leave a comment on any one of my blog posts from this one through to the 21st May and you will go into the draw.  Start following this blog and you will go into the you will go into a special draw only for those people who follow me.

No other rules........and I will post the giveaways at my wherever you are.

Hope you like my new look, and enjoy the upcoming posts.
