A few more :-)

I've been trying to scrap but I have a nasty headache & I'm not getting far at all :-( 

I have managed to download a few audible books for the kidlets to listen to in the car though so all is not lost.

Anyway, as promised, here's a few more of my recent favourites :-)

Oh! my sweet, sweet boys!!
TFL & the lovely comments :-)

Some recent pages

I thought I might start popping up a few of my more recent favourite pages over the next couple of days while I'm working on a couple of new challenges. The first 3 are ScrapzBiz challenges (awesome challenges all the time at ScrapzBiz!!) & the last one is a page I did on retreat in June.

Some yummy Purple Pumpkin goodness on a couple of these pages!

 This was a challenge to use fabric & sewing so I only used fabric & cardstock on this page :-)

I'll pop up a few more tomorrow :-) Thanks for dropping by!

Clever Hubby!

I am extremely lucky to have a very handy hubby that is very good at restoring & building furniture (a hobby that my Dad introduced him to & that they shared while he was still with us). Jim had some old recycled silky oak timber in his shed that he & Dad had discovered in a timber wreckers years ago so when I asked for a bookshelf to hold my scrapping albums he decided to use it. This is the finished result & I think my Dad would be giving him a big thumbs up on this little baby!!

So glad that my albums are so easy to grab & have a look at now... I might even put my pages in the albums a little more regularly too rather than letting them pile up LOL!

Have a great day!

Scrapzbiz weekly challenges - Oh No! theme

Thanks so much for the lovely comments girls :-)

I managed to get a couple of last weeks challenges done over at Scrapbiz after having quite a scrapping block for a few weeks.

This was the Scrap It Blind challenge set by Kerryn. I love the SIB challenges especially when I'm lacking some mojo... just follow the instructions & you have a lovely page before you know it :-).

This next one was for the Fetch A Sketch challenge set by Judith. I really liked Judith's sketch & I think I'll use it again with some smaller photos.

Here's the sketch

and here's my page

If you are looking for some great challenges & some great shopping come over to Scrapzbiz.
Thanks for looking!

Purple Pumpkin July Sketch Challenge

I decided to have a go at Purple Pumpkin's sketch challenge this month since the sketch, designed by Belinda, is a beauty. I do have a "little" stash of gorgeous Purple Pumpkin goodies to play with too LOL!

I'm loving all the gorgeous homemade embellishments that are popping up in the scrapping industry at the moment & I think I'm not the only scrapper that is lovin' them. This page has a Lovelybug Bits n Bobs button on it too.

Here's the sketch

and here's my page
This is my youngest DS when he was 8 months old... he's a 4 year old whirlwind now :-)
Thanks for stopping by!

I still have no idea!!

Ok! I think have a LOT to learn about blogs but I'll just keep to the KiSS ( Keep it Simple Stupid) principle & I should be fine.

I plan on keeping a record of my scrapbooking endeavours here & maybe some other crafty things on the odd occasions that I finish a project. I hope anyone popping by likes what they discover.

Now to work out how to add pictures & pretty things LOL!

Whoops! I'd better not let my kidlets see that I used the word stupid... it's not allowed in our house.
