Thursday, December 17, 2009 a headless chook

Well, so the expression goes, I seem to have been running around like a headless chook - here there and everywhere. It may not seem like I've done anything for a while but I have been working on my DT projects, making thank you gifts for Emily's kinder teachers, as well as doing some construction work around our house - which has involved pricing, sourcing and ordering all of the components which can be very time consuming. Some days I felt like I was on the phone or net all day... actually I was!
So, I don't have any new cards or layouts to show you... yet, but I thought I'd share a little about the January new release for Kaszazz.
I am having a product demonstration and a chance to look at all of the new release products - and order some too if you like. As a hint, the theme of the new release is "Romance" but you didn't hear it form me, ok?
So, write it in your diaries - Monday 18th January, 7:30pm @ my place. No cost involved. Please email me if you would like to attend, and let me know numbers (you are welcome to bring a friend) but I will have to limit numbers to 12 so that everyone can have a play with the products. You never know, I may even have a product giveaway on the night!

I'm on a Design Team!

Wow, I'm so excited!!! I just checked the Sketches! {by tamara} blog to see who the new design team are and I'm one of them!! Did I mention I am excited?!
The call was for 10 people to join the DT from 1 January - 30 April. There is a 4 week cycle that involves:
Week 1: Layout Sketch Week
Week 2: Recipe Challenge Week
Week 3: Card Sketch Week
Week 4: Journaling Challenge
... so stay tuned for lots of projects and hopefully something to inspire you.

The first challenge will be posted 5th January so make sure you don't miss it!

For those interested in the next NEW Kaszazz Release, it will be happening in mid Jan. There will be more info to come but I'm too excited to concentrate right now.

As I was blog hopping today I came across a scrapbooking sketch site. I'm finding that sketches have been giving me a lot of inspiration lately, and it's quite fitting that this particular blog is called Inspired Blueprints. Their current sketch - #37 was the basis of this layout. Although I didn't stick exactly to the sketch, I used the mosaic element to fit with my photos.

Cardstock is kraft/oatmeal, PP is Grace Taylor by Grant, Heidi Grace stamps using Chocolate Ancient Page and coloured with Derwent pencils, Bazzill for the journalling strips, black felt tip pen and Signo white pen.
Thanks for looking :)
