Ok ...so if a person cannot show off in their own Blog ...then where can they show off?? So here I am again with another first place layout.... This time I won the National 'Thanks Day' scrapbooking competition. This was particularly exciting for me as it is the second year in row I have won it .... it's kind of like retaining ones crown in the miss universe competition ....well not really , but hey, it feel good to win something! It surprised me a bit, as I also entered another layout with this one, which I though was even better, but apparently this one was the more fetching of the two.... you never know what they looking for eh!
These layouts were made by Trisha Needham from Casino ....she is only a beginner scrapbooker, but look at the awesome stuff she has already done ... We are all very impressed Trish , keep up the amazing work!

This AWESOME Kaisercraft desk top box was created by Kerri Green of Casino. She has masterfully used the 'Ebony and Ivory' papers to decorate this box and has inserted two small bi-fold albums inside it which have been decorated with the same papers. What an excellent idea for a 21st Gift! Well done Kerri, it's a fantastic project!Thankyou soooo much for sharing!

This is a lovely Kaisercraft JOY monologue that has been beautifully decorated by Jane from Casino. This particular Beyond the page project has been widely used as a Christmas decoration, but upon seeing this sitting on a shelf in Jane's home I was struck by how versatile it really is as a decoration for any occasion!! Of course Jane is quite a clever cookie and has done a spectacular job of it ...great work Jane ....we want more!
This Haning open album from Kaiser was decorated by Cassie from Kyogle (is it just me or is there some amazing stuff coming out of Kyogle?).... This album traditionally hangs down the wall, but Cassie has turned it on it's side to suit her photos better ....clever girl! Cassie created this wonderful keepsake as a gift for her Father, and what daddy wouldn't be proud of this beautiful beyond the page project.... Well done Cassie, it turned out wonderfully.
These lovely hanging frames and the matching clocks were made by the very tallented Sue Haynes. Both these projects are from Kaisercraft and Sue has used the 'Tudor' Kaiser papers to decorate both projects. Well done Sue, these are just beautiful and we look forward to seeing more of your amazing work in the future!

So look what Harley made now!! Harly is two and a half years old and with a bit of help from his mum, he mananged to paint up this gorgeous clock for his dad for fathers day. It was soooo much fun watching Harley pick all the coloured paints and then the stuff to stick on it, and his amazing mother realy did let him have a free hand when it came to painting the clock. In true 2 yeard old style he used HEAPS of paint and the final effect of all the colours running together looks quite effective I think! Well done Jo and Harley!

These are some lovely layouts done by HELEN .... Helen WHO? I hear you ask ...and that's an excellent question ...I don't actually know ... what I do know is that Helen lives at the end of the street, she comes and scraps once a week with myself and Kerri (who shot through to America last month leaving us all high and dry), I know she's married to Jim, and obviously she has some kids ....two gorgeous twin girls included in that generalisation!! Anyway regardless of her last name, she's done some FANTASTIC pages for a beginner and I felt they really deserved to be shown. She is a very clever cookie and these layouts have all been created with Kaisercraft products . Well done Helen....you are a star ... or at least you would be if we knew who you really are!!

Oct update: I did add journaling and this layout won second place in the Casino Aggricultural Show scrapbooking comp.
OK ...so this has NOTHING to do with scrapbooking ... but I just wanted to put this great photo of my favourite little baby alpaca Buzz on here...
Buzz is six months old and just the cuteset little thing you could hope to see. He is a pure white Huacaya Alpaca, and is a constant pleasure to look at out my back window!

I Made these mirros yesterday.... the large flower (which stands almost a meter tall) was donated to the school for a fund raising auction and I made the two smaller ones simply because I could not help myself!!
When I asked my elderly father what he thought of the large flower mirror he graciously pointed out that if I droped and broke it, at least it would still look normal!!

(STL) with a lovely lady named Sherry Mendoza.
She also has her own blog that is well worth taking a look at: http://scrapbooktradingplace.blogspot.com/
Anyway, we both sent each other a photo via e-mail and then scrapbooked it onto an actual page and then sent them back to the original owner via snail mail.... and this is the result.... Above you can see the layout I did for Sherry and below is the layout that she did for me. Heaps of FUN!
This was a pretty simple Layout that I did for our recent 'Big Day In' where we all got together and scrapbooked all day for hours on end! Thanks to the buttons, lace and pastle tones of the papers it is a very soft layout (although this photo is a bit on the weak side!). I designed it to be simple and easy to replocate. The kits to make this whole page (with heaps of papers left over) worked out at only $7.45each!

It won a place in the June Beyond The Page competition that Kaisercraft ran on the forum. This was a real buzz.
It's made using all Kaisercraft products - the lettering, the rubons, the papers and even the painted little wooden puppy and cat!
