Forever Always 2010 Xmas Ornament Swap

These are the fabric covered balls I have made for this years swap.
I love this swap and over the years my tree is filled with some very yummy hand made ornaments.

(thanks Kaleah for holding them up so I could photograph)
They are in the post today girls!!
Merry Christmas

Collage Art

This month I have been busy creating these collage art pieces from foam and fabric on artist canvas boards. Some are still secrets so I can't show them yet.

I originally made a set of the frogs ages ago as part of DT work for Forever Always, and a friend spied them hanging in Kaleah's room and wanted a set for her daughter.

The next 2 are my Japanese dolls made using fabric from some of Kaleah's old dresses.

And for the boys.....

The end of the month

Well it's the end of another month, and scrapping wise not very productive.
I can now share my recipe Scrap layout for Forever Always

and the card
You can find the instructions for these on the blog.

I did this layout for Kraft it Up at the beginning of the month, but wasn't overly happy with it and didn't get around to photographing until now. The criteria was to use Kraft and decorative edges. Beau on his 1st day of kindy school. He was so excited, and it was impossible to get him to stand still for 1 second.

Time flies

WOW time is really flying heading into the silly season. Sadly scrapping has taken a back seat lately. We are busy at school getting ready for our Art Show and making christmas ornaments for local church. Each class needs to create indivual artworks, plus 2 decorations. I have been helping Regan's class get their artworks and christmas decorations ready, and we are creating them using all natural materials. Bark, dried leaves, seed pods, twigs, shells, sand and whatever else nature can provide. Very environmentally friendly. They look amazing. I must remember to take my camera next week.
I have also been making some quilted ornament balls, and also busy making some other ornaments for our Forever Always handmade Christmas ornament swap.

Here are a couple of sneaks for next month at Challenge Heaven -

Sketch Challenge -

This months sketch comes from Inspired Blue Prints and I fell in love with this sketch as soon as I saw it.

Song Challenge - use a song from the 80's - criteria Glimmer Mist and/or paint

Remember that one hit wonder from Bobby Darrin - "Don't Worry Be Happy". Yes I am sorry if it is now stuck in your head too!!!!! Catchy little tune isn't it?? More like very annoying.

FA November Kit

Who said blue and green should never be seen?? Personally I think they make a great colour combo, and judging by this months kit and the sneek peeks from Sonia and Paula, I think you will agree.

To find out how you can get your hands on these yummy goodies visit the Forever Always blog. Don't delay, last months kits were a hit.
