Scrapz.Biz July Ticklez Kit

Hi everyone!  I'm very happy to say I'm back up and running with my brand new laptop screen thanks to my very clever hubby.  Yay!   He saved us so much money by replacing it himself and it's as good as new thank goodness!

This month I've been the lucky girl who got to play and create samples for the Scrapz.Biz July Ticklez Kit.  It's full of fun, bright colour...perfect for birthday pages but also really versatile and suitable for a wide range of themes.

You'll find a full description of what's included in the kit HERE...and you can find it HERE in the store for purchase.  These kits are fantastic value at only $29.95!

Ok....here are my projects...

I adore this pic of Madi with her best friend Livvy.  It was taken on their last playday together before she moved away.  She really misses her as they always had so much fun together!

I've used the Basic Grey Wheels and Pink Paislee tissue paper to create the flowers on this.  The only things I added that weren't in the kit were the cardstock, twine and the Thickers.

I had to do at least one birthday page as those banners were too cute to resist!  This is Riley on his 6th birthday last year. 

I've added the cardstock and some alphas but the rest is from the kit!

I thought the Basic Grey Wheels suited the Twirler theme of this page really well...

I dusted off my dymo labeller for this one...hadn't used it in ages!

There's a sheet of super cute Penny Black stickers in the kit so I made a little set of cards too...

And finally there was this page with some older pics of Paul and Madi...

She looks so little in these photos! 

I made my own flower out of the Pink Paislee tissue paper...

Well...that's about it I think!  Hope I haven't overloaded you with photos?  LOL

I've got more to share but I'll come back with another post.  There's more scrapping plus I've been busily knitting little Blythe doll clothes and helping Madi set up her very own dollhouse for her Blythes...so fun! :D

Hope you're having a great week!

My poor laptop...

The new weekly challenges are up over at Scrapz.Biz.  When I first saw the theme for this week was 'Oh No!' I wasn't quite sure what I was going to scrap...and then this happened...  :(

EEEEEKKK!!!!!  Ayden accidently tripped Madison over...who ended up with her bottom on my laptop screen!!!  Completely laid it out flat and did a good job cracking it too!  Thankfully  Madi was ok....but just look at my poor computer!!!!  *sigh*  Let me just say I was NOT happy.  Anyway we've got a replacement screen on the way and Paul will be able to replace it for me...but in the meantime we've borrowed an old stand-alone screen so I can still function.  I'd be lost otherwise!!! 

So....for this week's colour combo challenge over at Scrapz I came up with this combo...

Kinda bright huh? LOL  (Challenge details can be found HERE if you'd like to play along.)

Here's my page...

I've used some of the new Basic Grey Out of Print papers and added a bit of Echo Park and Crate paper scraps too...

I hope you're all having a great week...and managing to stay warm!!!  It's been so cold hasn't it?  See you all again soon...and thanks so much for dropping by!

Catching up...

Ooops...didn't realise I'd left my poor little blog for so long!  We've been enjoying the school holidays over the past couple of weeks...and now we're back into the school/kindy routine again.
We stayed home for this lot of holidays but still had fun.  We went to the movies and saw Kung Fu Panda 2 (it was great) and I took Ayden to see Transformers 3 (awesome!), we visited family, trips to the park, shopping, lots of just hanging out...and we went fishing.  The kids LOVE fishing!!!  This particular day was so beautiful...such a lovely sunny winter's day and all three of the kids caught their own fish!

We did have to throw them all back as they were too small...but the kids didn't mind one bit...they still had a really fun day!

This week they're back at school and kindy.  The boys weren't so keen to be going back but Madi was super excited to be going to kindy!!  Now we'll be counting down to the next school holidays! LOL

Now for a little scrapping catch up...this was my sample page for last week's Scrap It Blind challenge over at Scrapz.Biz...

The theme was "Hard Yakka"...so I decided to scrap my first attempt at making little pyjamas for Madi's Blythe Doll Emily...boy it WAS hard work! LOL  I did get there in the end and Madi is over the moon with her girl's new pjs. ;)

I'll be back tomorrow with some more scrappy shares!
