Scrapscene and other stuff

Well this morning I was excited to see my name in two Scrapscene posts in a row - the second one, here, is an honorable mention for the Truly Trendy competition they had recently, for the mini-album I made with February's kit from The Dozens. The truth is, the mini isn't quite finished yet. Oops! The making it is easy enough, I need to stick more photos and journaling in it.

The first mention was to do with this announcement by Lusi Austin - I am lucky to have been asked by Lus to have a 'play and display' with her products designed for Buzz and Bloom! How cool, especially when I saw the awesomely talented women who are also on the list - and then little 'ol me :) I am hanging out to see what new goodies are released... today, I think it is.

Actually I've already had a play with Lusi's designs that I already had in my stash - Kiti Q stock some of her fab stamp designs, and some chipboard frames. You might have noticed I've stamped on a few recent pages, such as 'Toughen Up', 'Gelati Faces' and the painting 'Blah Blah Blah'.
I also used the chipboard on this boy mini-album class kit I designed for Kiti Q. I designed four class kits (yep, that's why I have been so busy) for Kiti Q to release at the 'Picture to Page' show on the weekend. The two mini-album kits sold out on the Saturday morning, but I believe Kell will be putting a few more together, so contact Kiti Q if you are interested. They are $25 each. There were also two layout kits (which, btw, leave you with plenty of product leftover, to do with as you wish!), which will be online here soon. Here are the piccies. The layouts are older designs (earlier this year I mean) which only just got put together - and of course, I'd lost the instructions I'd originally written and had to rewrite. Of course. *eyeroll*

Hmm what else. Oh yes, the painted tree with paper birds and leaves and music notes from the Daisy D's wonder years range won me 2nd prize in their April designer competition. Yay! I get $50 of product as my prize, I wonder what they will send....

Shipped May's Q Tea kits yesterday, there are actually some left this month, so if you like a bit of vintage-y drama in reds, blues, purples, check out 'The Court Jester'. I'm currently making a mini album from it.

I've been scrapping but I don't know what I've photographed, LOL, as I have been a bit slack in that regard. Let me see :) Hmm, no new pics. I'll just try and post tomorrow with some NEW layouts (I'm being optimistic here, but that's a good start - right?).

Cool Storypeople quote from the other day. Summed me up. Which might be a bit sad actually, but I liked it anyway.

New Friend

I'm at that point in the day where I'm tired of myself, she said, so if you don't mind, I'm going to be someone else until bedtime & we had a lovely time together, my new friend & I.
