I hate being sick!!

I have this horrid flu now for over a week and it has knocked me for six!! I never seem to get sick in winter just summer....why is that??

So anyways have hardly scrapped at all but I think I am pretty much nearly over it and tomorrow is the end of my working week and then 5 days off......so I am scrapping!!

I have a few layouts to share from crop last week.

First is Inspired Blueprints sketch #36.......I just love this photo!!

this is the second sketch for stuck sketches

this is a 52 sketches, 52 weeks sketch

and thats about it from me.....not much scrapping like I said!! December is such a mad month for me especially with work and xmas madness! so really don't think there will be much scrapping from me!!

Layout update

Well I have quite a few layouts to share as it has been over a week since i blogged!! In that time I have been to two crops as well as had a birthday and got myself a HEAP of new scrap stuff!! (gotta love birthdays)

So here we go!!

Firstly is my Layouts from crop at Scrapbooking Delights which is very rare that I attend as hubby is always on night shift but he had his first Friday night off in like 10months so I abandoned him, of course....LOL

This is an old inspired blueprints sketch..

This is a sketch I have used from 52 sketches 52 weeks, only just came across this fantastic sketch site. You must check it out!! Love these pics of Nate and my gorgeous niece Emily. She so adores him which probably has something to do with the fact that he is her only boy cousin!

And this is another sketch from the same site.

The next is the sketch challenge this month at Anna's Craft cupboard and I believe it is the very talented Wendy Smith's sketch.

Now I planned on sending this next sketch in for What is old is new but of course I didn't read all the components of the challenge as I was meant to use Glimmermist or similar so I will be redoing this one but not to worry it is a great sketch!

Just a couple more....these are sketches 34 & 35 at Inspired blueprints. I am soooooo in love with October Afternoon's new ranges. Report Card and Farm Fresh are Adorable and am so looking forward to using them more.

well I think that will do tonight and I will share my others from Savvy's crop at a later date! Hope I didn't bore you.....I must post more regularly I think.

Why have I been so busy???

I'm not exactly sure WHY but it seems like my last two weeks have been flat out with non stop plans and no Me time (aka scrapping time)
I guess heading into Xmas now the party's start, work is flat out and there will be even more less time.

So anyway over the last couple of weeks I have managed a few layouts, to share and this one I did today which is a challenge at Scrapbook Savvy...Natey boy in his little swimmers and his cute little bum!!

This one is the colour challenge at Savvy as well....It has photographed really badly and not exactly sure why

and last one to share tonight is Stuck sketches 1st Nov sketch...

I will upload a few more tomorrow cause I am off now to attempt to scrap while the kids are still up. Wish me luck!! LOL

Scrap the Boys November Challenge

So this month's challenge at Scrap the Boy's is you must take inspiration from the children's nursery rhyme,

What are little boys made of?
Frogs and snails
And puppy-dogs' tails

Here is my sample

This was Nate at Myuna Farm, trudging around in the rain, and it was guaranteed that any puddle, mud patch, dirt etc, he found it!! He was a mess! (ie what little boys are made of)

Send your entries to susan.longman@bigpond.com.au to be in the running for some fabulous prizes.
