I have not been around because I have been very busy doing this and that...the that being making a mini for the Trade Winds Mini Album Swap at The Life on {Scrap}Beach  My partner was a lady from Crete named Chrissa.I have met her once at a coffee morning in Athens and she is very sweet..I will be seeing her again at our crop in Athens on Saturday and  we will swap minis in person, is that not so exciting!! !

So Chrissa here is a little teazer from your Mini I have cropped the photo you will see the rest on Saturday.
Today is St Katherines day so I wish all the Katherines that I know a Happy Feast day!  May you be blessed....It is also my sisters birthday today,I made up a mini album kit for her, with the title "My Boys" Vix I hope that you enjoy putting the album together.
Thats all for now girls..

More L.Outs for the Scrapbeach Challenge

Here are the other three challenge layouts for the Scrapbeach Challenge
This is # 3 we had to scraplift...I copied some elements from Anita Cheeks mini album, the one that she is donating as a prize, I LOVED it!!!!

I copied Anita's folio,her scalloped tag and her lollipop flower with the envelope cprner at the back,so that a tag can be tucked behind the flower, thanks Weezie.
This is my take on #4 No trimmers, I tore free hand and with my ruler, then I also used my fiskars punch



And lastly this is challenge #5 it was called Delicious Nutricious.We had to use 1 paperclip,2 flowers,3 shades of ink, 4 patterned papers, 5photos, 6 brads...phew.




Challenge Time

November 2009 Crop Challenge at Life on the {Scrap} Beach has been my latest craze this week.We have to do as many of the six challenges as we can...I have done three and a half so far...will see how far I get today!

Here is my take for Challenge#1

And the last L.O. that I can show you now is #6 Animal Crackers.

A teaser for Chrissa

This photo is dedicated to my friend Chrissa, it is the beginning of her mini album...I will use most of the things you see on the floor in the pile. I am making the mini for Chrissa because she is my partner for this month for the mini album swap at  Life on the [Scrap] beach. So Chrissa here it is....a pile of paper and other goodies...I have already made 2 flowers for the album...

I also want to thank all friends old and new for the comments about my first video.Melenia asked about the butterfly.I have a post about them in my September 20th post. They are really easy to make just some sandind and Stickles. As well some beading.
