Still in Masterchef...Round 3

I'm a happy bunny today as I completed my entry for the latest round of Masterchef and it is my favourite that I have done for the competition so far.

Unfortunately I can't share it with you as then it wouldn't be anonymous but if you'd like to vote in the competition you can see the entries at A Spoonful of Sprinkles and then you can register as a member of Carolinez Craftz Forumz in order to cast your vote :D

I'm also pleased as Kelly from the Mojo Holder Scraplift Blog chose me as the winning LO for their class in the recent UKS Summer Cybercrop. I haven't uploaded it to this laptop yet but will post a photo when I do :D

Tomorrow Carl and I are giong with Mum and Dad to the Chapel Down Vineyard. We want them to taste the sparkling wines with us as we want to get a couple of bottle for our pre-reception in 2009. When we were there last time they told us the non-vintage would be perfect to drink in two years so that works out wonderfully! Plus we get to eat lunch in the fab restaurant again - fingers crossed it doesn't rain though.

And finally, Jen has accepted the Rockin' Girl Blogger status so now I'm going to tag Willow (if her computer is finally working!).

Underwater Photographer

Underwater Photographer
Originally uploaded by Scrap_Vamp
Inspired by the article on water LOs in Scrapbook Inspiration I finally got around to scrapping some non-dolphin photos from our trip to Discovery Cove last year.

After reading a tip on The DIBB we went to Walmart on the night we arrived and purchased some underwater disposable cameras. They only cost us about $12 for all three (about £7 at the exchange rate then) and we're so pleased we did. AT DC they were selling very similar cameras for about $15 each!!!

It was great fun being able to take photos under the water while we were snorkelling, even if I was completely hopeless with using my snorkel lol.

I had all but finished the LO, using wave shaped pieces of pp, and diamond glaze on the word "underwater" for part of the title but I couldn't decide how to finish off the other word for the title. So I took a trip to Scrapbook Sisters and spotted these fab KI Memories stamps - all my other stamps were too big or too small but these were perfect. I stamped the word directly onto the LO and heat embossed it, which had the alarming effect of making the cardstock curl at first - eek! But once it cooled it settled back down into the right shape, i.e. flat!

I'm also really pleased that I used the gold sea charms on this LO - I bought them when I started scrapping three years ago, safe in the knowledge that I would use them one day - and now I have.
