Atletiek 2012


Yesterday morning was Babble & Krabbles athletics day. They had 3 events - 50m, spies gooi & sak gooi. I was so proud of Kruz, he came 1st in all 3 events.


I finished this layout when I got back form the athletics.

Wooden Storage Drawers

I finally found the perfect storage drawers that you can stack. I have used mine for all my handmade cards, but I just need to finish making dividers for the drawer.


Cars Box 1


Cards Box 2

I only covered & embellished the front of the draw as I have a few more I need to do & then I'm going to stack them somewhere in the studio.


I have ordered a few of these drawers & hope to have them in this week sometime. They are R70 each - if you would like to place an order for some of these drawers please email shoestringscrapbooking@shellseeker.co.za

And you must have patience"

Scrap Africa - Brand new challenge blog

Banner_kvadr_web


This is how it will work.

Every 2 weeks on Thursdays we will publish a new challenge for you. You will have 3 weeks to complete it. We will alternate sketch challenges for lay-outs with theme challenges. For our theme challenges you can create any kind of scrap object - it can be a lay-out, a card or an altered object as long as you follow the requirements of the challenge.

You can combine our challenges with challenges from other blogs.

Only make sure that you do not combine similar challenges together. You also cannot take part in two challenges on our blog with the same project (our challenges will overlap and therefore you cannot for example make a lay-out using our sketch and then enter same lay-out into the theme challenge on Scrap Africa).

Our design team will choose the best entries which we will feature on Scrap Africa blog. We will also choose someone to be our guest designer for one of the challenges.

We plan to have sponsors for our challenges. After every two challenges (a sketch and a theme challenge) we will randomly draw the prize winner among the participants.

We think that this new venture is something worth celebrating. And what is a celebration without a gift?

A Boy Is...

Blue jeans and trucks,
Scrapes on his knees,
Running in the dirt
Being a tease
Making a face
Build and destroy
There’s nothing like
Just being a boy!

Notice Board

I bought mom a clock & the only reason I kept the packaging is for the polystyrene..comes in handy when doing off the page projects. Shanice has been nagging for a notice board for a while now, so I decided to use the packing to make her a notice board.


P Before
I gave the box a coat of paint, covered the polystyrene with fabric & added a flower.
