OMG!!! Severe Blog Neglect

Wow!!  It really has been a looooonnnnngg time since I last posted...  Life always has a way of taking over!!

Here are a few of my latest makings and creatings.   All of these were created for swaps and challenges at Mini Album Scraps.

This is a tag I created for my swap partner Lisa Rhodes.  We were paired up for a toilet paper roll mini.   Lisa did a fantastic job on her is just so very pretty and I love it!!  Lida I can't thank you enough for being such a super swap partner!!

Here is the mini I created for Lisa.  Our theme was Pastel Colours/Spring



These blue pages were created for the mini album page swap.  The theme was anything goes but you had to use the colour blue.  This was fun...and very interesting to create in one colour only.

I had so much fun creating this tagpictured below. The theme was "Time Flies".....boy do I know it!!!  Look how fast the last 6 weeks have gone!!   I can't wait to see what everyone else created with this.....looking forward to seeing all the different interpretations of one theme.  I have used a manilla #8 Shipping tag. I inked it up using Tim Holtz Tea Dye; Aged Mahogany and Walnut stain. The clock faces are cut from his Paper stash "Lost and Found".   The wings were hand cut and glimmermisted using Tattered Angels "Coffee Shop".  I punched out the clock hands and used a metal brad and Tim Holtz tiny washer.  The flower was crocheted by me
  Here is the reverse of the tag.  I have stamped it with a music stamp and used copper embossing powder to wet emboss it.  I enclosed a mini tag with all of my details and a stamped time saying from Tim Holtz

This was my take on the our first weeks Tag Challenge.  We have another one up now....and I have to admit I am running a little behind on that one!!  Better get creating and quickly.....Challenge ends tomorrow!!!!   EEEEEEEEEEEKKKKKKK

I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed creating these!!  I was so inspired by the paper and the swap itself.....I did not want this one to end.   This is G45 "On the Boardwalk"  and I just loved every minute spent creating these.  This Mini Album Scraps Postcard swap...."Vintage Summer"


WOOOOHOOOOOOOOO Bloggers, my first ever lollipop flower that did not go up in flames!!!  This is my very first one to ever survive the flame!!
 and here are all the rest I created for the flower swap over at MAS....our theme was Summer Pink and Browns.   I have made all my flowers out of fabric. This was a 5 + 1 swap.  So we all made 5 sets to swap and kept one set for ourselves

These are my stamped images.....for my first ever stamped image tag swap.   I have seen heaps of them about, but have never ever participated in one.....that is till now


Here are my pretty little matchbooks, which hold my stickpins.  Again these were created for a swap over at Mini Album Scraps.
 and here are my stick pins!!  I loooooove making stickpins!!  So quick and so easy.


Last but not least, I would like to share with all my crochet flowers.  I am selling these sets in a small range of colours over in our shop at Mini Album Scraps.

 If you are interested in buying a set, please drop by our shop.  Send a message to Lisa and she will be able to put your order in.

Ok Bloggers, thanks for hanging in there....I know it has been a long read.  I will do my best to get back into blogging on a more regular basis.......I can't promise anything tho' has a way of just taking over at times!!

Happy scrapping to you all
