Exciting news.... for me!

I'm a Twisted Sister.... YAAAAAAY!!!!

I've loved the Twisted Sketches Blog since it first started and have enjoyed playing along with it. I fully intended to enter the competition for the very first team of Twisted Sisters, but got my dates all muddled up in my head and missed the deadline.... such a typical me thing to do! It was great to see Rach make it onto the first team though. Then I always seemed to miss the posts announcing that it was time for new teams, but still I didn't mind as another fab friend and talented scrapper, Jems, got a place. And now it's my turn.... whoop whoop for me:) I'm hoping that this is the kick up the backside I need to get me regularly blogging again.... it might work for 6 months, you never know ;) So watch this space to see Twisted LOs very soon. Once it's gone live on the blog I'll share the LO that got me a place on the team.
I can share a couple of LOs I have done for Sarahscards. I was sent some papers from the American Crafts The Classics range. Now I have to admit when I first opened the box and saw them I though 'eeeeeek' and closed the lid. After playing with them though, I have to say that I actually really like this range... in fact I am defo going to have to be buying a few sheets of the lovely peacock feather paper as I can see that being used on quite a few LOs.

Here are the 3 LOs I have created so far.
This fab photo of Drew stuck on the sofa was actually from a series of about 4 photos I got! He forgot there was a new toy box behind the sofa that blocked his escape route, and yes I am a cruel mummy for getting the camera before helping the child.... but come on, it had to be done didn't it... lol! Serves him right for trying to escape me... mwahahahahah!
The second LO was a very 'un me' LO created for my lovely friend, Jenny. Very strange not to use any mists, inks or distressing... not something I'll be doing often, as even though I like the LO, I don't love it iykwim. I'm sure Jenny will love it though, she's a wannabe scrapper... I'm sure I'll lure her over to the dark side soon!
The last LO is my absolute fave! It's a me LO. It has misting, scraps of paper and random stitching... and not to mention a photo of a super cute baby!
Right, as always this post has taken me forever to upload.... is there a quick way to add photos to a blog, because this is what puts me off uploading more often!!! Must go and cook tea for the family... curry, rice and naan bread.... yum yum!

OMG those pics of Drew are just fab, and that is exactly what I'd do - grab the camera first - oh the humiliation when he's 18!

Lou they are fab! And yes - You did encourage me to join you on the 'dark side' and I'm now a scrapbooker beginner! Hope I can be as wonderful as you at it someday! Poor Drew being stuck behind the sofa! I did wonder why the camera came out first...then I realised what an ideal opportunity for you to scrapbook it was!
