Completed Album

Back in June last year, I attended a retreat in Bruce Rock. Whilst at the retreat, the beautiful and very talented Amie and Sharyn both helped me create two albums from scratch.  I just got the "bones" of the albums done at the retreat and have been very slowly working on completing the first one.
It is now finished....YAY!!!!!
I might still add some bits and pieces later but at the moment I am really happy with it.
I had far too many photos to fit the album so I made a heap of little mini albums that slot into it.
Now I just have to finish the second album before attending another retreat in May and convincing the girls to help me start another album!
Here are the pics!

Stuck?! Sketches

I had a lovely day today, firstly Kristy, Simone and I went to the Boulder Markets and had a wander around then Kristy, Tanya, Dee, Jenny and I had an afternoon of scrapbooking.
I decided to have a go at completing the Stuck?! Sketches 15th January 2013 challenge and I was really happy how it turned out as it was the first 12 x 12 layout I have completed for ages.

Here is my layout:

Update on Project 366

Last year I started Project 366 with Kristy and Jenny, which is based on Becky Higgins' Project Life.

The aim was to take a photo a day for every day of the year and put them into an album.  I managed to take a photo for quite a few days of the year but only managed to get January into the album!!!
So, even though we are now into 2013, I am aiming to get Project 366 completed this year.
Here is some of the pages to date.

In my last post I spoke about my project this year called One Little Word.
My word for the year is "Tranquil". 
The aim is to complete 12 projects throughout the year which help keep this word intertwined in your life.
I have told Dean about my word and shown him the craft projects that I have completed so far.
Dean is always very supportive of everything I do, but sometimes..................................

Our two cats are not allowed in our bedroom unless we are in there as they scratch and claw the carpet.  The other day I had just had my shower and as I opened the door to go out of the bedroom, Agro tried to rush me and get into the room.  So I am yelling like a banshee at him saying "OUT, OUT, GET OUT, GET OUT!!" then I hear from the other room Dean calling out "Tranquil, Tranquil". 

Of course, he thought he was hilarious!!!

Anyway, here are my completed projects to date for One Little Word.

Hello 2013

It's the end of the third day of a new year and I love this time of the year.  It always feels refreshing and exciting and I look forward to what the year may have ahead for me.
I had a really nice Christmas and New Year.  We spent Christmas in Perth and caught up with lots of family and friends, some I hadn't seen in about 30 years!!  We were back in Kalgoorlie for New Years eve and spent a very balmy evening on the balcony of the Palace Hotel with a great group of friends.  We even managed to stay up and see in the New Year!!
This year I am taking part, along with some of my other scrappy friends, in a scrapbook project called "One Little Word" by Ali Edwards through the Big Picture Classes website.
You choose your "Word" for the year and each month you receive a prompt for a creative or writing project to complete which relates to your word.
My word for the year is Tranquil.
We have received our January prompt and I have already started working on the first project.
Even though Christmas is over and done with, I thought I would post some pics of the rest of the cards I created.
