Saturday April 7th 2007 I went to my first crop, i had moved house 2 days earlier, and 3 days before that i had heard Rosemary Merry mention UKS on QVC so off and went, found our there was a local crop 4 days later. And 3 years later i'm still at it. So in honour of this i have a give away, but first you have to listen/look at my scrap story deal?
December 06 Rob bought me my first scrapbook (which still lies empty, u live and learn lol)
Dec 06 i got a desk to make cards
This was my first ever page, using someone else's cuttlebug and 'fancy' circle punch, on my very first day i had a big push from my lovely friend Vicky at the crop, it basically went shut up and do it! lol and so it began. My first project was a 8x8 album for my sis in Auz of our parents recent visit there.
This is where i used to scrap in our old flat, check out all that natural light, i soo miss it.
Once i had finished my sisters album and paid about a million pounds to post it to Australia, i started my next project, and so began scrapping about Disney!
July 07 - Disneyland Paris- Yes indeed that is Basic Grey, and yes they are QVC alphas
By August i started to experiment with A4, i had clearly bought a cuttle bug (fyi- my fave pic of rob like ever)
By November i was feeling a bit cocky and made this mini book which im still super proud of, i also had the halloween party so i could make this book.
This is what i got up to in April 2008- this page was on my kitchen wall for 2 years and still one my favourite pages, i was also still into Basic Grey lol
I got published in Scrapbook Inspirations a couple of times, this Paris page hangs in my living room now.
November 2008 i got a new fancy desk.
Got published with a few of my xmas pages.
December 2008 I was asked to join the Sarah's Cards Design time, seriously biggest compliment ever. This was the first blog work i did.
2 years on April 2009 my stuff looked like this.
April 09 i got my own room, a whole room just for me!
June 2009, i made it on the Twisted Sketches Design Team.
Fast forward a year and this is my latest page.
And thats my story, 3 years and they have been great, I have made a ton of friends lots of which i am sure i will know for years to come.
So a giveaway- if you are still awake lol. Never done this before but this is what i have to offer.
Some brand new (as in not opened) Comic Book style stamps and an acrylic Heidi Swapp alpha.
First give away i have ever done so i guess just leave me a comment (be nice) and i will do one of those number generator things (does it sound like i know what im talking about) and that will pick a winner. I will draw it on Sunday.
Hope you have enjoyed my little story, im pretty pleased with how far i have come and even more pleased i am still as obsessive as i always was. Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. xx
