Hi there everyone  posting another pic of a page I did for the Workshop Wonders day . Its a fun busy day where you get to do 4 classes with 4 teachers all have different styles and it show cases the huge pool of talent that Queensland has . If you are interested in coming along contact Alison Bevis on Facebook and shell give you all the details.

For the background I have used some paintable wall paper I got from Bunnings . I sprayed mists on it , stamped it , inked it and used texture paste threw a stencil and also stuck down some plaster tape for added texture .

 I cut a few bits of paper and distressed them and inked the edges .

 I used a twiddle Bits chipboard and put imposing powder on it and layered charms and flowers over it .

I decided I like the embossing powder so much I adde some to the page as well .I went over some of the charms with Glam Glaze . Hope you had fun looking see you next time . 
Hi Everyone as promised I am posting some pics of work I have done in the last 12 months while I was off line . So here we go .

This is a page that I scrap lifted my own work . I worked it so I could fit it into a shorter class time as the original was a four hour class . So I used Kaiser Craft base coat paper and a manor house flower and of course some charms . The heart frame in the back ground  was made using old rub ons that don't rub on very well and some Shazza's Magic Mica Mists .

Well pees can anyone believe it I made a Christmas album …. very unlike me . Anyone who knows me will tell you Iam not big on Christmas ,so this will not be repeated lol . It is a mini album made from a pack of Kaiser Craft cards and chip board . I love the dear charm its so cute . I made this album to teach at Fantasia Scrapbooking shop at Bella Vista . but I moved back to Brisbane before I got a chance to teach it .

Well Hi there everyone its been a very long time since I posted on my blog . So firstly to up date you where Ive been and what I have been up to .Last september  I applied and got a job as a Sales and Training Manager for New South Wales so of course I moved to Sydney and have been working for the last 12 months .

I continued to scrap while I was down there but not as frequently as I would have liked . I also had the opportunity to teach some of my mixed media projects in a wonderful shop at Bella Vista called Fantasia
I enjoyed my time in Sydney and met and worked with some awesome people
While in Sydney I was able to connect with my Aunty Elaine ( my mothers sister and who was recently diagnosed with bowel cancer ) and my cousins .

 My Cousin Wayne cooked me plenty of roasts which helped with my homesickness .

 In July I came back to Brisbane to hold Shaz &Als retreat ,with my good friend Alison Bevis ( who is on the Kasier Craft Design team )

While in Brisbane seeing all my friends and Family I felt in my heart it was time to come home.
Since coming home I have had lots to do and cope with and life was frantic at first . I had to move back into my house ,It had been vacated under unpleasant circumstances . My son was placed back in a mental health facility and my youngest daughter had her third baby .
Baby Luke was born with a rare heart condition and was not expected to live very long . He decided he had other plans and wanted to stay around . He has grown and astounded the Doctors and was released from hospital after only 5 weeks .
Life has been hectic but I have had many blessings showered on my . My life is not what it was ,but I am grateful for all I have been given. I have had lots of scrapping opportunities along the way and will post them here over the next little while . Its nice to be back in the blogging world and hope you'll all come back for a visit to see what crafty things Iam up to and new products I have found . thanks again for visiting , Cheers Shazz .
