Not much Happening......

Well I have done absolutely no scrapping for at least a week now......not really sure what the matter is but have been feeling very lazy and unmotivated. Just hoping that a new month will bring me plenty of new and exciting challenges to get me back in the mood.

I finally got around to finishing the Sketch Challenge at Aussie Pub Calls this month, not thrilled with it......I have issues with circles, very rarely use them and if I do they have to be small ( as you will see further down!)

This is Inspired Blueprints Sketch #23 and once again I have used Pink Paislee's Fascinating range which I so Love!!!!!

White With 1 this month which had a criteria of red, white and brackets........I just LOVE how this turned out!!! I decided that I really have to start trying different things as I am getting bored with some of my layouts lately, which would probably have something to do with the lack of motivation...der, lol

I only had a couple of layouts to share and the last one is my sample for next month's criteria for Scrap the Boys (very cool must say) which I cant show yet...

So here's hoping that I am a little more inspiring in the next week....till then

OMG....I made a Creative Team!!!

WOW....who would have thought I would get on the Creative Team for Scrap the Boys.......as I have always thought I struggled with the boys layouts!! lol

Well as you guessed, I did and am very excited to be joining Susan and the rest of the team who every month have given me so much inspiration to create great boy layouts since discovering this awesome challenge blog a couple of month's ago!!

The new team are below and I recommend you check out these ladies as they are very talented!

Wendy Smith – Australia
Amy Welch - Arkansas USA
Kerryn Fry - Australia
Anna Koziarek - Poland
Leanne Triggs - Australia
Aphra Bolyer - Louisiana USA
Pia Salem – Lopez - Philippines.
Hannah Blair - New Zealand
Wendela Lam – The Netherlands
Nadhrah MaidinKuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Linda Eggleton – Australia
Monique Follet – Australia

So anyway's this month's challenge is Boys and their Toys. The photo needs to be about the boys and the their toys ( but if you don't have one or time to take one you could journal about it instead)...and the other criteria is a colour one...Red, Black and One other colour!

So if need of any inspiration, head on over and I will see you there....
Till then

Iv'e been MIA....

Just realised it's been nearly three weeks since I have updated....not really sure what I have been doing, Probably not much different than normal!!
Where does the time go????

So I therefore have quite a few layouts to post, so here goes....

Firstly, this is the Scraplift Challenge at Savvy......so LOVE this pic of Isabelle, she looks so innocent and quiet....if only you knew!!

Next is the Sketch Challenge for Savvy....

June Challenge for Scrap the Boys, had to have a layout with their toys, I had absolutely no pics of Nate and his toys but on his birthday he got so many toys and all he wanted to play with was the balloons!!!

Next are just a couple of pages I have done just because.....

Lastly I finally got around to completing a couple of Savvy's CC Challenges yesterday...this is the Lucky dip challenge and I had to use Yellow, lace, animals & heart...

This was the blind challenge... I really like how this turned out actually!

Lastly this was the sketch challenge, not real keen on this one but I challenged myself this weekend to not use any new papers, embellies etc as my scrap stuff is building up and I don't seem to be using alot of my older stuff, and that's just a waste!!

Well I will try and drop in a bit sooner than 3weeks next time....LOL!!!!

Till then
