A few weeks of happy mail

All the goodiesI have been so spoilt over the last couple of weeks, not only have I won a couple of fantastic prizes. But the girls on the Allcraftz Forum have been sending me Raks (Random Act of Kindness) as part of our monthly Rak list.
I have gotten a lovely rak from Anna, Sharon, Cherie, Ruby and Avie.
I wish I had taken photos of all my goodies now so I could share them (actually you can see a little of Sharon's great little note book in the photo with the HUGE flowers) I really love what everyone has sent me. It is so great to open up mail with yummy goodies in it. Big thanks to Ruby for the DST! You have no idea how much I needed it :)
Felt Fusion and RoseAvie 'owed' me a COM (ColourWind Chimes of the Month) for the Feb/March COM. But we had held off her sending it as she wanted to send us a house warming gift. Avie had been running behind on sending it but sent it on Thursday. To my delight I opened the door to receive a PIZZA box lol, I thought it must have been an order, but no it was my goodies from Avie. Bling and HUGE Flowers
There was a lot of awesome scrapping gear, yummy herbs and two (TWO) beautiful wind chimes!!! The wind chimes took a bit to get up, (the heaviest one falling down, and having me {stupidly} sticking my foot out to 'catch' it.. which hurt lol).

I can't wait to plant my herbs!! I have also gotten some seeds off of Bubblefrog in a WW (wishing well) and also I think I got some from LouLou for a COM/WOM (Word of the month). If I didn't get seeds I know LouLou sent me some AWESOME gloves which I like using while I am out gardening.

Mate!!! I have had the best time ANSD was the best event ever!! The top of ALL Internet parties, heck the top of all REAL parties!! I have so much to tell, I don't know where to start!!!! I am going to do a post about ANSD tomorrow (well that would be later today) but here is the Icing, the Crème Da La Crème.


"This prize is the official Allcraftz National Scrapbooking Day Award. It goes to one person who was in her element the entire day! She was entertaining, helpful, attentive, and more! If anyone asked a question about anything she was quick to answer- or get the answer if she didn't know it- and went out of her way to be a fantastic unexpected addition to help things go smoothly. She was also an active member leading up to the day, and a valuable asset to our member list. This person, simply for being herself, has been awarded the Allcraftz National Scrapbooking Day Award for Outstanding Excellence in All Areas. Her Prize is one you will all want... she will receive free product once per month for the next 6 months including high quality NEW release items. As they come in a package will be chosen and sent to her before anything even is listed. The total value of her items will exceed $1000. And the winner is................


I was so excited, couldn't wait, which one of my beautiful friends was going to win this tremendous prize...

2 Mins and 10 seconds later...


The winner is............ ELIZABETH *name in hiding*




THAT'S ME~!~ I just sat dumbfounded, literally. Mouth open wide as could be, and for the first time in my life SILENT.. Well apart from the incoherent aaahh hahah oohoh hahah gaahh sounds coming out of my wide open mouth.

I can't thank Ebony enough!! This is such a wonderful prize! It is a wonderful honour.  Thank you Allcraftz! She is so naughty, because she told us all there would be prizes and what they were, the raffles etc, she mentioned that there would be a 'kindness' one or something along those lines, but she said prize, not MOTHER OF ALL PRIZES!

I found this really cool site yesterday, it has so much SCRAPPING info on it, links to publication calls, Dt calls, competitions, retreats, challenges, sales.. pretty much everything scrapping that us Aussies can join in on. If you know of an event, you just email the lovely Gabbie. She will do her bit, and get it on the site for you.

As for the competitions, the have links to other off site competitions, but they are also holding somen themselves. They held one yesterday for these YUMMY stamps... Donated by Lime Tart. Aren't they cool?? To enter all you had to do was leave a message on Aussie Scrapbooking's blog... Well some lucky so and so won them and... ok ok the so and so was ME :O how cool!!! I am really really excited. I don't often win anything, so I am totally stoked. Today's competition entry requires you to spread the love for Aussie Scrapbooking. With the chance to win a pink Smiggle tin, filled to the brim with some yummo goodies!! So why not drop over and try your luck?? You never know what the scrapping gods might give you.

Big thanks to Aussie Scrapbooking and Lime Tart. I can't wait to play with my new stamps!!



This is my entry for the Challenge Monochromatic on white at Purplescraps forum. This month their cyber crop is sponsored by Allcraftz. So I thought I would pop over and have a go. On Friday night I won a $25 voucher to spend at Allcraftz, so that is really cool! It is the first thing I have won at Allcraftz. I have a second challenge I want to do, but I am not sure when the entries have to be in.. Also the Purplescraps is down at the moment. Anyhow hope your having a good Sunday!!

Ok well when the site came down I didn't have the instructions, and we were supposed to have a flower (or more) on this lo, so I had to change it. I think I like it better now.. Notice how much MORE dodgy the second photo is... I don't think I will EVER be good at taking photos of my lo's

This was also done as one of the challenges. You had to follow a sketch, and although you could 'change' it around a little, I didn't do so, apart from turn the actual sketch around. I will add the sketch if I can find it.

Had a great time over at Purplescraps. THANKS for having us Girls!!
