yeh yeh slack I know! But I have been busy you know....

There's been a fair bit of scrapping, working on the family history, work and then there was a trip to Perth thrown in for good measure! lol... so yeh.. busy.

So what scrapping have I been doing... well when I remember I will tell you. :)
I know there was the Scraptacular round 4 layouts, but I can't share them here atm, so if you want to look you will have to head on over to Scrapbooking 4 Less to have a look... especially as 1 of the layouts took me 3 hours just to lay out, without sticking anything down on it... and anyone that knows me, knows that's not the way I usually work....oh dear, the things I do....
But that said, I'm really really happy with the way they've all turned out!

And what else...

I know there was a layout for the word inspiration challenge for S4L... one of Busta

now isn't he just the sweetest.... yeh when he wants to be! :)

And I can't remember what else.... blame a faulty memory... overwork or whatever you will!

Ok I'm off to do some more scrapping.... I've got 7 layouts done of my 20 that I need to do for the Use your Stash challenge at Scrapboxx... yes I'm sorely in need to do a lot more than just 20, but hey... one step at a time...

Boys and Jesus

A discussion on religion was held in the car this morning on the way to work....

Kristofer: Jesus was born in a feed trough and he died on the Southern Cross.

Ok... so what are they teaching in Christian Studies at school?

Well what a busy weekend... SNC had a cybercrop on so it was a weekend of a lot of fun and laughter.. oh and of course a little scrapping!
I think I was a bit productive.... 9 layouts, 7 cards and 2 bookmarks... yep productive I would say.
But looking back at the layouts, I think there's a few of Jonathan there... he is just the most photogenic child... but I think I need to take some more pics of Kristofer.... oops.
So here are all the layouts... don't ask me which challenge they were for because really I can't remember.... it's too hard for me tonight... lol.... sorry.

So that's pretty much my week/weekend in a nutshell! The only other thing I did last weekend was my unmounted stamp storage. If I remember I might take a pic and share with you.

And if you're looking for something to do over the Anzac long weekend, then check out Scrapbooking 4 Less... there's a cybercrop happening there, with some absolutely AWESOME prizes as well as an online class.... wish I could do that one...

And finally from all reports... my little present to Jodes was well received today... pmslol....thanks Maria for delivering it for me!

and on that note... have a wonderful week!

It's only been 2 weeks... well... not even that really! lol... but I've been busy... flat tack in fact!

And I've done some scrapping... and even some I can share now...

So the first are my 2 layouts I did for Round 3 of the Scraptacular comp at Scrapbooking 4 Less... a layout based on Kim Archer's style and one on Tim Holtz's style...
I had so much fun with these and love the way they came out...

This first one is Tim Holtz style... very grungy...

And this one is Kim Archer style... lots of photos and bright colours... I love this one!

And I have to thank everyone who voted for me in in the comp... I'm now into round 4 and it looks like a great one.
All the layouts throughout the competition have been absolutely fantastic. It's been really hard to choose who to vote for each round. Congratulations to everyone who gave it a go and did layouts... they are all stunning!

I've done some other stuff for S4L... the sketch challenge for this month and the DT Pack Challenge

These are great challenges so don't forget to head on over to S4L and check them out!

And there's also a new comp running... it's a word inspiration challenge. This is being run over 8 weeks with a new word each week.
Here are the 2 layouts I've done for the words.. first was LIFE and the second was SWEET.

I used the new Core-dinations cardstock with this one... embossed it and then sanded it back. Loved the effect....

It's not too late to enter so don't forget to check it out while you're there.

Ok... I'm off... things to create....
