precious gift

long time no post

Since my last post I have finished my term with the ScrapMatters (hybrid) creative team.  It was a great experience and I thank Andrea, Britt, Heather and the other SM girls for their support and encouragement I had a blast!  However being on the Hybrid CT brought with it a lot of hours 'on the job' so I was unable to continue my term on, even though it was offered.

Hybrid takes TIME!!

Since the beginning of the year I have been engrossed in my new "baby"!  Project 365 that is!  I am proud to say that 100 days in I am still doing it and keeping up to date.  I am even scrapping each week with a two page layout!

You can see the photos each day here and the layouts are here and in my Weeds & Wildflowers gallery here.

I hope to get some more scrapping done - more regularly now.  I feel like my mojo is back!

Black Friday Blog Train - Stop #20

Hi all! Welcome to Melbourne, Australia!

Hopefully the blog train is working well and you should have arrived here via Sya's blog.

If you're visiting me from the US today, I hope you had a great Thanksgiving yesterday and are enjoying the Black Friday sales! Be sure to go and snag 40% off most of the digi-goodies at the ScrapMatters shop today!

One of my favourite Christmas Traditions is to make a pavlova for dessert! I have been making one every year since I was a young teenager. From a very young age, I used to always help my grandmother make the traditional plum (Christmas) pudding, but now that she is beyond cooking, the dessert is left up to me :) I really love pavlova and it is something we only have once a year, so I look forward to it! I always do strawberries and cream on top! YUM! Here's a pic of my one from last year...
Now, where are the freebies I hear you ask? Well I have some cute little hybrid candle decorations (or napkin holders!) for you to create. They were made with the great new holiday kit called "comfort & joy". It is a ScrapMatters design team collaboration and is available to you for FREE over this holiday weekend with purchases over $10 in the shop! Woohoo :)

click the image above to download

... and here's how they turned out! Cute huh? They can be stretched or shrunk to suit your candle or napkin size. You can even personalise them with some names if you want!
I didn't mention it on the preview but the .png's ARE included.

Now the train is departing! Please move on to Denise's blog for your next bit of FREE holiday goodness!

Oh, and if you missed the start of the blog train, you can head back to Andrea's blog and start from the beginning!

Happy Holidays!

I've been slack...

but there's so much coming up to make up for me being so slack! I have completed lots of projects which I still need to blog about. Maybe after this Friday, I can get caught up!

Up until a few weeks ago, I had never even heard of "Black Friday"... but is HUGE in the US and is all about having a big sale and boy - ScrapMatters is doing just that! Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving and is all about getting a bargin at the stores, sort of like our Boxing Day sales, yet more impressive! So they are doing no less at ScrapMatters, wait for it... 40% the whole store on Black Friday (THIS Friday, 28th November) and then further (not as impressive!) discounts across the weekend.

The best thing is, spend just $10 and receive the new "Comfort & Joy" holiday kit - FOR FREE!!

So be sure to pop back on Friday to jump on the blog train with me again for a sweet little hybrid holiday freebie!

Then once you're done filling your carts at the sale, make sure you drop past the forum each day to pick up another kit - FOR FREE! The newest "Daily Download" starts on Friday too and runs right up to the week before Christmas.

See you back here soon!
K :)
