The next swap for YSB is on and the theme is Butterfly. These are my ATC’s. I really like them they are bright and very shimmery in RL.
I received our first swap back (Birds) and Wowo! Some are so awesome. I am going to take a photo of them because they are so lovely. I also have to blog about my ATC CJ that arrived home yesterday they are just magnificent! Each is just Woah!!!!!!!!!! So expect another post very soon :)

This weekend gone was the first YSB Cyber Crop. It was such great fun there was 4 scrapping challenges up over the 4 days and I managed to complete 3 of them. I am pretty proud of my efforts :) There was also lots of fun and games, I topped the games chart by a whopping 70 something points LOL. I am not sure what my prize is but I can’t wait to receive it. I received a lovely little package from Rachel this week for bingo that I won there. I also just won the Lotto there as well. I better stop playing the games or they won’t let me hang out anymore lol

Here is the atc I made for De. Her theme was Vintage Flowers. I punched out the flowers from an old book and then dyed them using re-inkers. Stamped the background using distressing ink and then put perfect pearls over it to give it shimmer. Put gold perfect pearls over the punchies. Printed an image on cardstock. Hope she likes it.
I made these cute Bird Motifs thanks to the great video supplied by the Crafts Beautiful Channel. Check it out. They are easy to make and you just use up scraps. I’ve made the atc’s for the first ever swap at Young Scrap Birds.

I did most of the undercoat on Friday night after Michael went to bed. Looked really patchy, but came up a treat when the top coat went on.
Our brand new lounge :) I went out Saturday night to a crop, and when I came home (at 3.30am lol) Michael had painted the whole lounge while I was gone. What a sweetie hey? He had ulterior motive though, he wanted to go out Gold Detecting on Sunday :D

Just a quick update. Michael and I watched a movie tonight (Knowing) then we decided 10pm was a great time to do the undercoat :o) We’ve done the cutting in of the undercoat, now just need to do the rest of the area. He’s gone to bed, work in the morning, but I’m feeling inspired. I might just do the rest of the Undercoat by myself :o)

None of the usual long story blather.. OK I lie lol. I finally got sick of the nasty poo coloured walls in our house so I
conned sweet talked Michael into helping me move all the furniture out of the lounge room. We have puttied, sanded, puttied some more and sanded some more :) Painting should begin tomorrow today (it’s now AM). We have to putty up more where the old air-con was (they did a bodgy job after they replaced the plasterboard). Once we’ve done that, we’ll sand some more, wash the walls and hopefully get the undercoat done. OK Bed time! Thanks for reading and for all the support girls!
