100 things about me

Well, I just popped over to Rebelliouskiwi's blog and saw this, so I thought I would do the same. I have not photos to share today, as I forgot to take pics at UIW today and last week. I will upload the card we did today a little later (have to take a pic), but for now, here are 100 things about me. . .

More swap shares

Hello again!
I am back again, just like I promised!! Here are some more swaps completed in the last few days or so. Remember, you can click on the images for a larger view.

This is the pilot for the LSBS ATC Club Colour of Love swap.
The ones I ended up doing were a smidge different, but I accidentally
posted all 15 of them, instead of keeping one for me.
Lucky I found this one on my desk lol!
It was created using Stampin' Up! inks Elegant Eggplant and Rose Red, stamp from Heart Art Studios, mono adhesive and ultrafine glitter.

This card is for a swap on StampinUpOzStyle Yahoo group. It is a technique swap. There are lots of techniques used in this one, but I won't say what they are until after they are swapped out, in case any of the players happen to visit my blog - don't want to spoil the surprise for them.
It was created using ALL Stampin' Up! products: Stamps - Wild About You, Cute as a Bug; inks Night of Navy, Brocade Blue, Ballet blue, embossing powder and ultrafine glitter.

These ATCs are for a swap on Stamphappy Yahoo group. The them is "Feathered Friends", so anything to do with birds, nests, eggs, places you find birds etc.
Stamps are by Stampendous and Inkadinkadoo ("Birds Galore").
The inkpad is Purple Twilight (Adirondack).
There are tons of tiny little blings all on them,
but they don't photograph too well.

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great day!

Sharing some creations

Good afternoon everyone!
I hope you are having a lovely day, with a great weekend lined up.Today I am just sharing some creations I have made recently for swaps. Forgive me if I have shared any of these already - I am feeling lazy today and don't want to go back thru my posts to see if they are already here lol! I'm terrible, Muriel!!! :)

So, without further ado, here are the first shares.

These calendars are part of the calendar swap over at Little Scrapbook Shop (in the Swappers Anonymous Section of the forum). There are 12 of us in this swap, and each of us are to complete a month in each other's calendars. These are the ones I have done so far (have to see if I kept photos of my own one somewhere).

You can click on the images for a larger view.
The theme for this calendar is "Life's Lessons"
The theme for this calendar is "My Favourite Recipe"
The theme for this one is "What music means to me"
Ahh, I found where the pictures of my calendar were hiding, so here is mine!
The theme for my calendar is "The Value of Frienship".
This is the front cover . . . And this is the month I competed (I didn't think to take photos of the
individual pages, so this is as close as it gets. Sorry bout that!)
So, that's my share for the moment. I will be back later with some pics of some ATC's I have completed and a card swap for the StampinUp_Oz_Style yahoo group.

Have a fab day and thanks for stopping by!

Hmmm, I've been tagged!

Ok, I have been tagged by Sandie. Not really sure about this game, but here goes.

So here are the rules of the game:
Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post the player then tags 4 people and posts their names with links to their blog, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment letting them know that they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog.
Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answers.

Question 1: Ten years ago. I was working in Canberra for Integral Energy in the Faults and Emergencies Centre and a single working parent with one child.
Question #2: Five things on today’s “to do list” Complete the 5 million swaps I am in, get some classes ready for the school holidays program, make some more cards for Little Scrapbook Shop using the fabbo spaceman stamps.
stion #4
: Things I would do if I was a millionaire - buy a house, new car and invest some money in ING. I would also give a wad of it to my parents and brothers and set up some trust funds for my children.
Question #5: Places I have lived - Darwin, Carlton (Sydney), Blacktown (Sydney), Queanbeyan (NSW), Wooloomooloo (Sydney), Florey ACT, Chifley ACT, Doonside (Sydney)

OK, so thats me.

Now, who will I tag that will play this game?

hmmmm. . . . . .

Kayla Renee

So thats it! Hope you girls decide to play.

Have a great day. I will be back tomorrow with some more photos of swaps I have finished in the last 2 days (4 to be exact!!!)

Finished a swap!

Hello bloggers!
Today I finally finished my cards for the Great & Easy Recipe Swap over at Little Scrapbook Shop.
Here they are, finished and ready to post. This was fun, but I am really glad to be finished. All that embossing took a lot longer than I expected lol!! We had to make 10 of each recipe card and the finished cards had to measure 12.5 x 12.5cms . Yum! I am looking forward to receiving everyone else's swaps too!!

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a great day!!

UIW Class Monday 16 June 2008

And hello once again! *grin*

Here is a photo of my Monday ladies with their creations from class this week. There aren't any photos from the last 2 weeks, as I was sick one week and last week was a public holiday so no class (as everyone had something on).

The card the ladies made was one from a set I designed for Little Scrapbook Shop using the June Monthly Card Kit.

Here are my lovely ladies holding up their creations. . . .

Here is the card they made . . . .

And here are the other cards I designed with the kit.
