A Lay out for

well I said next on my list was something for my list, well I did start something but had to stop when I didn't have the right bulldog clip , so I decided to do a lo for me!! first lo I have done for a non challenge in a long time!!

anyway its nothing fancy and I am still going to add journalling to this lo ( something I find my self doing a lot more) but I will add that tomorrow when I get more pens.

About a year ago I discovered the CD with all the photos of my son Elliott had been destroyed not only Elliott everything from that year has gone so when I found these pics I was so happy, the pics them self not very good but who cares!!! I have

products: used bazzill card stock, papers from Grace Taylor, chipboard from my stash so unsure the brand, stamps from frisker and alphas from American craft thickers.

little note book

So as of late I have been reading the secret again, and I decided I wanted a little affirmation book so as I was reading and I thought of things I could write them down , So I was telling my friend Tracy that I needed to go and buy a little note book, Her reply was “ you own Bind-it-all make one you twit” well must say twit was the right word at the time, I didn't even think of making

materials used thick black card , papers from Grace Taylor and tittle and flourish cut from the silhouette

Next on my list of things to make is a note book/holder thing for my to do lists, I am a chronic list maker and make list for everything!! hmm might even alter a come back tomorrow to see what I decided to do,

We all start somewhere!

Well over on the trademe message borads there has been some talk about ppl feeling there pages aren't very good and not wanting to post there LO, So my good friend Tracy has challenged myself and Kris to blog our first Los. So today I am going to show everyone some of my first stuff I ever did , to show everyone that we all had to start somewhere and the Lo you see today didn't happen over night.

I started scraping when I was walking though warehouse one day and saw some ready made Los on the shelves, and thought to myself “oh I can do that”!! little did I know it was going to be a lot harder than it and it took a long time! So I got a few bits and bobs and went at it....

Problem was there just want the stuff around there is today till I found Hastings rubber stamps, a shop that had been there for years I had walked past it hundreds of time but that one day I went in. I was in love!! they had everything there I was looking for and stuff I hadn't even thought of

Over the years my style has changed a number of times it is forever evolving. And I have come a long way from where i started, but even then some things are very hit and So please if you are new to scrapbooking don't get discouraged by what you think to be good, even the ppl who did the Los you look up to started somewhere!
