scrap the boys challenge & SM Masters Magazine

I would like to congratulate all the masters and honourable mentions and  thank Scrapbooking Memories Magazinge for Publishing one of my layouts in the 2011 Masters Addition. If you haven't yet seen it, please grab a copy as it is a good and inspiring read!

I am on Page 48 if your wanting to see my work.

A BIG thankyou to everyone that has Messaged, TEXT, phoned and emailed me of my Layout, your very kind and it was a big surprise for me as I never thought i would make the honourable mentions at all. *MWAH* to you all xxoo your just too kind xxoo


I started doing another challenge and with Scrap the Boys extending their deadline for their submissions. I decided I would have a go!...

oh boy oh boy did i find this a challenge.... ... WHAT WAS I THINKING......

Christmas Layouts just don't work for me... serioulsy they really don't and I tend to avoid them at all costs if I can. But I faced my fears and with using up and distroying about 10 different pattern papers and about 4 cardstocks I just about gave up but with a little help of encouragement from my Facebook Friends I kept persisting with it until I finially could say I like it...lol.

For me to like my own work is important to me as I am the one who serioulsy will distroy it and re do it if i don't...lol! crazy.. but that I am...lol!

So here is the challenge...

and here is my layout using up the scraps of a prima packaging.. oh i love that stuff. Thank goodness for some paint and stamps which all made the inspiration come back to me once again!......

Thanks for looking
I really hope you have an enjoyable NEW YEARS EVE and most importantly a safe and HAPPY NEW YEAR and months ahead!..
Love & Hugs from me
Tan Xx :)

Get Picky Dec Challenge & Christmas pics to share

Hello to my lovely readers..
Hope Christmas was enjoyable for everyone, the weather here in lismore was perfect and the Payne family had lots of food to consume on the day! Was really nice to catch up with family we haven't seen for quite a while.

Over the break I decided i needed to do some creating and liked the 'get picky' blog sketch and thought i would have a go at it.

This is a layout about my girl who is born to perform and loves any chance to be in a photo or perform in any way she can.




Want to know why this photo is scary for me.......
This time next year my girl will be towing over me....eeek... look how tall our premie girl has become!....

 have to put in this one... makes me giggle!...lol

hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a lovely holiday break for those that get one. 
Thanks for looking and commenting in advance!
luv and hugs
Tan Xx :)
