Adventure 365 {January}

Jewel from Mad Genius Designs has re-vamped and is re-releasing her Adventure 365 series! Check it out!  If you go to her store right now you can pick up the bundle for 45% off or the individual kit parts for 30% off, but only for next 2 weeks.  I hear that there might be a freebie paper stack on her blog too!

There is an awesome freebie Adventure 365 Fair that you can nab at the Mad Genuis Designs Blog.

January for my family is the summer school holidays, with myself and my husband tag teaming work and looking after the boys, so when it come to a long weekend we take it and run! With Australia Day falling on a Saturday, a long weekend occurs rather than having the day off, so we packed up the camper trailer and headed off to Wee Jasper Reserves to Micalong Creek. We were fortunate to get a prime spot on the low side of the creek on what the locals call the island. The boys made friends with the other children and they played non-stop all weekend. The highlight I think was when they all tied up the assorted inflatables together and rafted down the "rapids" of the creek. You can see how much fun they had in the page below.
PS - this page uses Adventure 365 January and very special flair that Mad Genius Designs made just for me!  How awsome is that girl!
As these photos were being taken I almost steped on this little beauty!

Not sure if it was disturbed by me or the children who had run past only minutes before! It slunk of back into the bushes.  This is a baby red belly black snake.

Excuse me, but where did 2012 go?

For some strange reason my blog has lay barren for a whole year. Was I really that busy? hmmmmm - yes! I find myself on two weeks annual leave at the tag end of the school summer holidays with endless tasks to catch up on - like detoxing the boys bedrooms, and my wardrobe, buying new school shoes and uniforms, organising haircuts, dental visits, and doign fun stuff with the boys as well. So what did I do on my first day? Cleaned out the fridge and redesigned my blog background and header. I used Jewel's aka Mad Genius Designs collection called December Daily 2012 which you can look at over at the Studio in her store HERE! There is so much in this mix and match collection that I wont list them all there, but there is an assortment of everyday items and Christmas themed bits as well. Oh and today I scrapped a page, first one for 2013 - goodness it has been ages since i have had the time or the inclination to do so. I guess 2012 was not a great year for creativty for me. Anyway here is my Happy Memories page also using Decemeber Daily 2012.
You can leave some love over at my gallery at the Studio.

Mad Genius Designs June CU Grab Bag is out now at Digiridoo Scraps! This CU grab bage has two set of grunge overlays and a set of flower brushes.

I combined all of these together with Pattern Genius Volume One - Commercial Use and Brush Genius Volume Two - Commercial Use to come up with a cute mini I have called "Watersprite".

The colours I used were from a pallete for the June Go For Pinks (or blues, or...) colour challenge at DSDI.

Freebie featuring CU product by Mad Genius Designs

I love Jewel's CU products. Her latest CU products are no excepetion. You can click on each image to go to her store.

I had a huge play with them and came up with a mini kit using this pallet.

Which is from this month's Go For Pinks colour challenge at DSDI.

I used the layered damask for a couple of papers, one of the frames and the paper borders. I really love how the paper borders came out!

I used the grunge set for all of the papers.

I used this brush set on the green paper to really grunge up the edges.
