Getting Sketched with Kaisercraft

Huge Hello Everyone!

well it has been a nother fun filled week at TAFE!
starting to feel the routine settle...even it leave little time to
scrap, arh well i did get a couple late nights!
well i've got to say the boys are going well even thought the heat over here is starting to
get to me more than anyone...i just do heat very
sweat and ice cold drinks and becoming more in love with my purple
not that i could be out in public with it on but i do hide in a
dark corner of the house with it

so with the time issuse and heat scrappen has been moved to
"Wheni get cool enough to move"
have you tried scrappen while sweating??
not very good for your
but things do start sticking to you and not your

Well i have worked on some seriously secrect Squirl Layouts for my DT work
at Deb's Creations as i did mention in a few posts ago that Deb's is going to
release a few more Emerald Faries...but you just have to wait and see!...hehehe

But i have got a couple of Kaisercraft sketches done..WOOHOO!
first is the Febuary Saturday Sketch #3
i used Jungle Bug as the colours suited the photos so well!

i think it's the combo of the bib and that mashed Pumpkin :)
aww..i remeber the fun of given your buba mushie delights :)

then i gave Feburay Saturday Sketch #4 
a go with the yummy Peachy Keen collection :)

  This is Ash again, but a lot older and what seems to be Deep in!
really makes you wonder what they are so deep in thought over...

Well i've got to tip my hat to kaisercraft, even in the heat and time lacking
i will find the way to get to play with their collections and give their sketches a go!

i wish i had more to show or something more to say but i'm feeling a little
mifted...maybe just tired....i think i'll grab a fresh iced cold water
and lap up some Brothers and Sisters for 40mins :)

thanks for dropping by and have a looksy
as always i'm thrilled to see your comments and totally HEART you for taking the time to make me smile :)

Happy scrappen

to his dad and go off for the day and talk to Adults! I do admit at the end of the day i was ready
for a full on cuddle and play session :)

Now onto more serious matters...My Boy Ash turned 5 yesterday!

But it was the most delish Choc Browie cake (Gluten free)
i have ever ever had! My man really out did himself on this one..
i've even put in my order for my
i would have wet my pants for a cake like this when i was 7..
i so love Ninja Turtles! been so cool watching all the old cartoon
show i watched as a kid...sing the intro

Ash even thought the Cake was really yum :D

I took so many photo yesterday! when i went to upload them to my computer
it was near on 500! lol!
i am always torn between taking photos or a vidio of the blowing out of the candles
but i have now desided that when they're up for thier 21st

their birthdays and play it for them on the actual singing of their
21st birhtday :D or i'll just do it for

still i'm sure after a couple of weeks i'll be stoked
i'm just a little worried about change...
I already miss the SAMH life style and i haven't even venture out
well to get my mind of this i thought i would squeeze in a challenge

I popped over to Imaginisce Blog to see what they all have been cooking up
Well! i was blow away with the newest collections thay are bringin out!
and the challenge for Feb is a bit of a tuffy for me
it is an inspired challenge from this photo and using the colour combo

this theme and colours from my Imaginisce stash!

Saturday sketch on Sunday

Huge Hello Everyone :D
Well i'm sure you have already caught on i totally me Sunday's!
so today has been a totally homebound day!
I am really understanding now why mums have at least one day of
complete home, every other day your running around
getting kids ready for school and shopping and cleaning!...oh such is life!
Not at all conplaining! seriously Love my life i just have the
same little streak of laziness i had as a kid,
just want to bum around home doing nothing much eles than what a want..
well we'll be realistic with kids you get to do some
of what you want...which is awesome! :D
I finished my Awaked House of Nights now i'm on the prowl for
a good read...again...well not that it will be hard...but i always
miss my friends i have in each book i finish...Sniff

So today scrappen wise i've been lazy
i've only done one layout but still better than
i attacked the Saturday Sketch Challenge Febuary #2 from Kaisercraft yesterday..
This week’s sketch is based on the layout by Al Hannah’s layout “Life itself is…” – from Kaisercraft’s February Workshop Magazine.

Here is my take on this sketch challenge

I must admit when i printed these photos i was 
really scratching my head over what papers i was going to use..
considering my kaisercraft stash is well limited...
trying to match up the red, blues...was thrill seeker and i wanted more playful feel
lucky i had a couple papers i bought for myself for christmas..
thanks to my Lovely Big Brother and his darling Hun Janelle! they
gave me a $50 voucher! seriously! best Present all christmas....well
don't tell anyone eles in my family but my voucher and Tripod are just the top of the list!
anywhoo! i was suprised how well these Beach collections addapted as a 
playful homey layout, even the top of the Beach shacks make awesome arrows!

Well now i'm on the count down ..two more sleeps and i go to school!
very excited and very nervious..but i'm sure i'll be
Now just to sit down and some Fariy ATC and flowers for a swap at Deb's Creations :D
I'm thinking i use the delish Emerald Faires that are exclusive to Deb's Creations
            Also got to pop over to Colour room and see the new pallet
totally missed the last weeks...ooppssyy!

Well Happy Sunday Scrappen Ladies

so armed with this sketch and a colour challenge from Deb's Creations
Pink, Greren and Black...
Now if you don't know yet i really loath Pink and green and struggle miserable with this colour combo
so it took two coffees and some hair pulling to come up with this...

Lastly i had a go at this months Stuck?! Sketch..

Oh i sssooo loved doing this sketch!
