2015 Favourite LO’s

Posted by swewi on December 29, 2015

Dear blog readers. Thank you for sticking with me this year. Very appreciated! I have some exciting news to share in a few days, but til then – I decided to do my usual “end of year wrap up post”, sharing my favourite project of the year. It’s been a good year, but I have scrapped less than previously. I also kept on with Project Life though, and sure I’m behind but I am DOING it. And I am LOVING the simplicity of it. To be fair the family prefers looking in my Project Life album to my LO albums, but I enjoy scrapping LO’s and will always do both. I think! Anyhoo…

Here are my 10 favourite LO’s from 2015 – in no particular order 🙂. If you’d like to check out previous years go here: 2014, 2013, 2012, 20112010, 2009, 2008.

Do you have a favourite from MY favourites? 🙂 Or is there a LO of mine that you think should be on this list?

Let me know – and thanks again, from the bottom of my heart for visiting my blog this year!!

best

Christmas Time

Posted by swewi on December 28, 2015

Hi everyone!

Hope you’ve had a great Christmas, and that you’ve had a bit of a break. I am thoroughly enjoying the NZ sun and some family down time!

I’m sharing a Christmas LO today! I just had to scrap our “yearly Christmas photo” straight away – and what better collection to use than “Tis the Season” from Cocoa Vanilla Studio!

Christmas time

Just love this collection. And I am NOT a Christmas scrapper! I’m a well known GRINCH when it comes to Christmas scrapping!

Well, anyway. Thanks for stopping by. I will try and get another blog post done before 2016 – it’s time for the traditional “FAVOURITE LO’s OF THE YEAR” post, isn’t it!!

Oh where does time go?

Posted by swewi on December 3, 2015

Dear blog readers, I apologise! It’s been way too long since I updated here! I have been VERY busy, and it’s been great. Not imagining it will slow down any time soon, seeing as it’s December and all!!

So what have I been up to? In my personal life, October and November was VERY busy with kids and school – AND I starred in a musical! I was the Fairy Godmother in “Cinderella”! It was so much fun! An amazing experience! I haven’t done something like that in 20 or so years, so it was simply fabulous. And the Fairy Godmother is a fantastic role to play!

Looking forward to scrap a photo or two from that experience soon!

In my scrappy life – Sketchabilities finished, Karan decided to close the site. And – I stepped down from Clique Kits. It was an outstanding experience to deal with Social Media with a growing Kit Club, but it turned out it wasn’t for me. I will still be a subscriber, because their kits are fabulous, but I won’t be part of the Leadership Team anymore.

Since I blogged last, I have been scrapping a little, not as much as I wanted – but here is what I have done:

For Cocoa Vanilla Studio:

be yourself

all grown up

Backing black

Using Clique Kits featuring Cocoa Vanilla Studio:

Using Clique Kits featuring Pinkfresh Studio:

And my last LO for Sketchabilities, using Cocoa Vanilla Studio:

What have you been up to? And what does your DECEMBER look like??
