Passionate Scrappers Competition Week 1

I have entered an 8 week challenge over at the A Passion For Craft forum.

It cost me $20 to enter, and I received a pack of goodies to use throughout the 8 weeks.

Each week we are given a challenge to complete, this week we had to use (from the pack) 5 journal blocks & the Bella patterned paper. Also the journal blocks had to be journalled on. The other criteria was that the LO had to be about someone we love.

I chose my gorgeous niece Tayla, who I love & miss like crazy, as she lives over in WA. These photos were taken last year in September while we were on holidays.

All of the LO's entered were to be emailed to APFC's mighty leader Lynnie, and they were posted in the gallery anonymously, so that voting was fair. Also we are only allowed to blog our entries once that weeks winner has been announced.

The Design Team at the forum all vote, and everyone who entered can vote too, then the points are tallied up to get a weekly winner. Also there is a lucky draw each week to win 10% off their next order at the shop. At the end of the 8 weeks, the person with the highest number of votes wins a prize.

Anyway, this week, I received the highest amount of votes. Woohoo!!!!! I am excited!

What a mess!

Hi everyone,

Ok, I will fill you in on what happened here tonight.

Picture this, I am on the computer, Adam is in the other study at the other end of the house. Harrison is wandering around in between. I had just put a home-made pizza in the oven, and hadn't cleaned up the ingredients, as I was about to make another one.

Ok so anyway, I noticed DS was quiet, so thought I had better investigate. I didn't have to go far, as the kitchen is the next room from where I was. There was DS sitting in the middle of the kitchen floor.

See picture for details.

I yelled out "OH NO!" a few times, and DH comes running. Next minute DH is yelling "OH SH*T!" "Is he dead?" as all he had seen was red stuff and DS's feet.

So then I did what all good (Scrapbooking) Mum's would have done, and grabbed the camera.

Adam then gave Harrison a bath, and I had to clean up the pizza sauce that had managed to make its way all up the kitchen benches, and all over the floor :(
