I got my official Tiger Team Blinkie

I'm so excited! I wanted to share my new blinkie with you. It's my design team badge. I'll be getting my first design team kit this week and I can't wait to see it. Thanks Dalena,
If you are interested in getting Blinkies made, or even a personally designed blog layout or header, check out STAR. She made the Tiger Team Blinkies. Isn't she clever?

My entry for ChrisW's weekly challenge at Uproar2scrapmore. The criteria were: Circle feature,multiple pics and some clustering. I hope the flowers count as clustering? Can you see me? I'm 3 years old in this photo. Another layout I did at my scrapbooking class this week. it is going to have strip journalling around the photos eventually, but I'm still thinking about the words.

That's my boy!

He's such a clown! I know it's gross, but I couldn't help myself- it just had to be scrapped.

Yay I stamped today!

Yay, I stamped today!

Today I finally caught up with my stamping friend and made a couple of cards. I was inspired by some gorgeous flocked papers that Kylie sent me as a prize for winning a Cybercrop blind challenge at Uproar2scrapmore. Stamps are from Kaisercraft

sorry I'm MIA

I've had a cold for the last week and it's hanging around. Not getting much creating done.

It was an exciting mail day though. ATCs from a "Flower Power" swap I was in, hosted by the very talented Renu, arrived today. Here's the whole set for you to ooh and aah over. They certainly brightened my day.
ATCs created by L to R, top row- me, Renu, Martha
Middle row- Faith, Cindi, Loretta
bottom row - Suzi, Patty, Terry

Movie Title ATC

can you guess which movie this ATC is about?

It's for a Movie Title swap at the Stamp-Shack. My friend Chris, in Canada has great theme ideas. I decided to go with the old Alfred Hitchcock thriller- "The Birds". Background is alcohol inks. Images from Inky Antics and inkadinkado

Entries close Sunday May 3rd, Midnight PST. oops, that's today people. get a move on. There are 14 other great challenges and lots of prizes on offer too.
Just checked out what midnight PST means for Australians. Apparently it is 19 hours behind Sydney time, so if you work thru the night, you can get all 15 challenges done. C'mon Aussie C'mon!

Blingy souvenir

I love my Bling, and wear a big blingy necklace most days. Here's my one and only blingy souvenir from my trip to Darwin.

Top is the front, but I think the back is just as pretty.
