I went to the craft fair again today! Derek offerered to look after Cody so that I could have some mum time and see the bit I missed seeing yesterday, which was so nice of him since he could barely keep his eyes open. So consequently I have spent enough money lately and it's time to curb my spending.
I was thinking of a "use your stash" challenge, although I wonder how many layouts I would have to do to actually use it? I am sure I wouldn't be shopping till sometime very late in 2009!!

This challenge was to scrap a first "thing", no people, so I choose to do our house. Sadly these are the only photos we have of our house being built and they are not even that good. Thank goodness for digital is all I can say. I have done a lot of challenges lately where I have had to go back and dig out old pictures to scrap. In one way I am grateful that I have some but then I also feel sad that I didn't really know the value of having good photos until I became a scrapbooker. I always try to remember to take my camera with me everywhere I go but if not I always know that I have my mobile phone which actually has an awesome 5mp camera in it with flash etc etc.
Off to mum's group today, which will be my first time in ages (am usually working) so am a little excited about that. Will be good to catch up with everyone again.

This next layout is for my challenge blog, Out of the Hat.
I used a paint technique that I have been wanting to try for ages. It uses white rubons on white paper with a paint wash over the top to reveal the rubon. Similar to the wax drawings we used to do as kids.
It's going to be a busy month of scrapping. Uproar are celebrating their 1st birthday with a month long cybercrop and there are all ready quite a few challenges to try your hand at and we are only in week one!!

I also went to Sam's Warehouse and got some more jars. They sit on my new Kaiser paper storage racks and hold my ribbons, buttons and flowers. The little spice jars hold my eyelets and brads.
This is a close up of my hanging rails where I keep all my alphas, rhinestones, fozz felt and rubons. (and printer ink - I always have back up cause I hate to run out!)
