Surprise!!! Surprise!!!

Hey everybody,

I got a surprise today! I won the Basic Grey Challenge #26. Yay!!!
What a sweet surprise.
My DH and kids gave me Hi-Fis.
Doing a little dance right now!! lol!!
You made my day, Martine. Many thanks.


Today I made a layout for one of our Challenge Chics who recently delivered a cute baby girl.
We had planned in our forum at Debscreations that we will each make a baby layout and send it as an album to her.

Here is mine.

I also made a card for her.

I haven’t used pastel shades in ages.
My kids have grown now and I haven’t made baby layouts at all!!!
They look so beautiful and baby like. Awww cute!!!
They are the Peek a boo papers from Kaiser Craft. Really loved making them.
Thought I will share these with you all.
Got to go for dinner.
Thanks for stopping by.

Yay!! My cards are getting published

I was checking my email and to my surprise, I had this email reply from Austraian Cardmaking, stamping and papercraft magazine wanting to publish 2 of my cards in their reader’s gallery.
I forgot that iIhad sent some of my cards to them!!
The cards are here in my blog for today. I will remove them tomorrow first thing.
The cards are “Hi” and ” Best friend”
That made my day!! I am doing a little dancing at the moment.Lol!!!
I am applying for the Kaisercraft DT position. I am not sure I will get it.
If I get it. I will resign my current part time job.
Seriously!!! I am just waiting for a chance to resign.
I would rather do something I love to do, which is of course scrapbooking.
Anyway, I finished my single and double layouts. Half finished my OTP.
So by tomorrow I should be done. Not bad hun!!
Infact I was not sure if I will apply or not this Monday.
I went to see if my LSS had the papers and embellishments I wanted.
Not really. She had the new ones but I like some of kaiser’s old papers. She did not have them.
So I ordered online from Anna’s Craft Cupboard and ta…da… the parcel came the very next day. I am very impressed. It came from Perth of course.
Still!!!! That was very prompt. Thanks Anna.
But many of my parcels takes 2 weeks to reach from the east coast!!!
Since I got my products, I decided I will give the DT call a go.
Will show you all the layouts and OTP after the announcement by mid April.
Another exciting news is that my kit from Scrapncraft with T is arriving soon. I am guest designing for Tanyah next month. My January kit was her best seller.
So I am all excited to work on this kit.
Also kits from Debs creations are also posted to me.
I have no idea what the kit is going to be!!! Will be a surprise when I get them.
Yay!! can’t wait to see them and work on them.
I do not have anything to show today. But I am also working on a layout which does not have photo of person{s}. Shh!!!! Will show tomorrow. Lol!!!
Bye for now

A Sketch and a layout

Hey Everybody,
How is the day been for you?
Mine was such a boring day especially after a hectic yesterday.
It takes a while I guess to relax after few days of rough and tough days.
Was at work but was light.
Wish I had taken some scrap booking stuff to do!!! hehehe!!!

Anyway, this is a sketch by Behagguna from SB dot com.
Awesome sketch. I like the scalloped circle.
This is the sketch for Deb’s challenge 4 at her forum.

And this is my take on the sketch.
I made this layout last night but had to wait until this evening to take a picture of it.

The base paper is from Scenic Route.
I have used basic Grey Bitter Sweet and Porcelain papers for layers.
I used scalloped nestabilities die to cut the scalloped circle.
Bling flourish from Prima. Similarly the flowers as well.
Photo of Aditi reading a book with so much concentration,
that she did not even know I took a picture of her!!!!
Alphas from basic Grey as well.


Yesterday I received my Kaiser Craft Mumma Bushka papers and album. Nice bright and vibrant colors. Can’t wait to start on it. Maybe tonight!!!

Oh! people, Kaiser craft is calling for new Design Team.
10 positions up for grabs.
International scrappers are welcome to apply as well. Here is the link.
Give it a go.

Until next time….
