Marie-France's new kit.

It's late but I'm back.

Kindergarten was fun. My daughter is still settling in interesting times. Though just once I would like her to come home not coverd in paint. Especially since she's a minimalist painter more ends up on her tops than the paper but she's 3 and already been in a local art exhibit. So who am I to complain?

Back to business.

This is Marie_France's new kit. Schatzie. It's bright. Very summery and fun.

You can grab this kit here.

And here is my layout with it. Something a bit more traditional this time.

BTW. I'm still in shock that Heidi and Vicki have been so nice over the tombstone layout as it's now known in my house. And Thank you Marie_France for the congratulations. I don't understand why so few scrappers enter layout competitions the prizes are awesome and it's a great excuse to scrap.

Myself I'm a very slow scrapper. I don't do enough of it to get very fast. And I view challenges as a reason to scrap. I have done very few layouts just because. Perhaps when the children are better... Ha! The bigger they get, the busier I get.

I won.

Well I co-won. A challenge over at the Scrap and art Forum Hosted by the lovely Heidi
Marie-France was my co-winner.

I'm so excited because the prize is a $10 gift certificate to Vicki Parkers Scrap That Idea store. Whoo hoo.
Vicki and Heidi I would like to take a moment to say. Thank you.

And here is the layout that won. It was a lyric challenge scrap lyrics from a Duffy song. So I chose big flame and scrapped a burnt out building. It seemed like a good idea at the time. Until my love saw it and asked why I scrapped a grave. And yes it might look a little gravestone-ish. Ummm. I was going for sad because it used to be a beautiful family home. And I have a soft spot for old New Zealand Villas. When I lived In Auckland as a student I lived in one it was wonderful. I even didn't mind the fact that the toilet and wash house were outside outside and the washhouse still had it's boiler built in with a hole for the molly peg.

Got to take DD to kindergarten then I'll be back with my latest CT layout.

Bragbook Pages

Today I have for you two brag book pages made from paper pond by Marie_France

New Layout

Well I'm back from my weekend with the family. I think I'm becoming rural. I was watching everybody bustle and thinking slow and steady is better.
