Magistical Memories - Chipboard Challenge

As many of you know I am a Chipboard Freak and when I saw this months challenge over at http://www.magisticalmemories.com/, I instantly knew what I was going to use. There is a lot of Chipboard on this layout some from Basic Grey's Curio collection, a brick wall from Dusty Attic and the words Magical Moments and "Mike" from Terri at "Meant to be" scrapbooking supplies, along with a little Prima and Tim Holtz goodies they all make up this meaningful layout as this was taken just before Mike and His wonderful Girlfriend Sherie moved to Aussie. The hidden tag has some personal journalling on it saying how much we miss them. So yes these are very precious moments to me.

Here is the Sketch that was to be used for the challenge:-

and here is my take on the challenge

My Bungy - Scrapped!

Had to do this layout while this was all so fresh in my mind,
actually now that it is a few days later, I am quite amazed that I jumped (Fell), I can't actually remember the moment I left the platform, so thank goodness Trevor got it all in photos so I could relive it over and over again.......

So this is the start of a year of challenges for me, so lets wait and see what else is in store.......

I'm early, "Yahoo" I'm early for a change with the BAP for January for Prima normally I am running late and finally get to upload it on the 2nd last day and never know if they make it in time, so my motto for this year is "Be Early" Ok Ok so we are 16 days into the new year and this is the first time I have been early for anything, give me time... Rome wasn't built in a day (well it might of been had a woman been in charge!)
Anyway this Prima challenge was quite fun as I really love clusters and this was right up my little alley. Prima has some wonderful sketches to lift for their challenges but sometimes just sometimes there are some that look very similiar.................or is that just me.


Its not very often that Trev and I get a reasonable photo of us "together" so this is a treat and even better it was taken by Emz and was one of the many she managed to snap on Christmas day.

Hope you are all have had a wonderful weekend and maybe even had some time for a little scrappin!

My New Year Leap......Wasn't Pretty...............But.............I did It!


Hello, here are some photos to prove I completed the Kawarau Bungy just outside of Queenstown it is only 43m high but once your standing on the bridge it feels like a whole lot more!!! As one of the Bungy employees tried to prize my very tight grip from the hand piece, one finger at a time, the other young man edged me forward closer and closer to the edge until finally there was no room left and the only way out of this situation was down! Unfortunately it wasn't pretty and I'm sure I let rip with a string of obscenities to my Eldest Darling Son who gave this to me for Christmas last year (being 2009) and its taken this long to get up the courage to use it.

Anyway it was good and an unbelievable feeling of falling , but boy you should see the bruises from the harness around my legs, not down at my ankles but up further, now that is impressive. But hey the little harness and straps had a whole lotta weight to hold up until I managed to crawl into the waiting boat below (now thats a whole lot of different photos as there was definitely nothing elegant about being ceremoniously dumped into the boat!)
I still do think the Tower of Terror in Aussie is a lot worse tho, so if your down the Queenstown way and feel like throwing yourself off a bridge....go for it!!!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and check my blog
hope everyone has a wonderful 2011 and we all get a lot of scrappin finished!
