Today I'm sharing 4 swaps at once. As I've previous mentioned, due to my study commitments this year, my time management stills are certainly being tested!!!
First up : ATC's for the Ideal ATC Swap Group.
The theme is Frame It - being free to interpret this criteria anyway you like but the ATC must frame something on the ATC. Here's my take:
Ranger ATC's; Washi tape; Viva Inka-gold; clock & script stamps; black netting; c/b clock hands; Tim Holtz Metalz Framez.
Next up: "anything at all" over at Scrap Sanity's Valentine's swap:
Tim Holtz Kraft cardstock; Die cut from Kylie; Stampendous embellishment powder; metal butterfly wings for the belt from the Trinket Track.
Next up: Vintage tag swap for Brisbane Scrapbooking club : " must be some lace on the tag" and the tag I made for the lovely Heidi Williams:
Inkssentials Tag; Stampendous aged embossing powder; Kaszazz script stamp; lace; Bits 'n' Pieces flair button; TLC Crafts, Prima & my2angels' flowers; Eiffel Tower die cut; my2angels Paris Charm, ribbon, Viva Décor Ferro.
Last, but certainly no means least my embellishment swap. Heidi Williams set the February criteria as "metal and male" . With the kind assistance of my friend Tracy, this is what I made for the 6 lovelies:
Black Bazzil pp; Stampendous embossing powder; cog stamp; cog charms; Viva Inka-gold, key ring.
Well, I've now run out of time....I do hope you all have a wonderful week ahead...believe it or not next week is March (can't believe where the first 2 months have gone already!!!)
Hugs 'n' hearts xxx Mazz xxx

For those of you who may have noticed the 'change of name' of my blog... I've become serious in my photography hobby - hence the name and the 'business card' on the side of my blog. Practice and learning will most likely take me 'for ever', however, I'm hoping to combine my love of photography with my love of scrapbooking and paper art.... so without further ado....

You will find I have lots of 'favourite' pass-times!! but my favourite 'loves" are: My best friend forever (BFF)soulmate Ian (aka Biggles) and my 2 handsome sons, 2 gorgeous princess grandaughters and an adorable prince grandson - who I LOVE to bits and wouldn't swap for the world. I love to spend time at home in my scrap space and out on our balcony looking towards the glorious Australian bush...I am an obsessive compulsive scrapbooker and scrapbooking products, which I love to share. I love card-making, stamping, collect turtles (not real ones!) postage stamps and postcards,
Cooking, Entertaining, Latin American dance, Rock And Roll, Dining Out, Photography, Listening To Music, watching Movies with Ian. I love to make people smile...I have a passion for people from 'diverse' and multi-cultural backgrounds hence my love of travel and sharing different beliefs and cultures as well. so...
"May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun
And find your shoulder to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness and riches
Today, tomorrow and beyond.
