Been feeling rather unscrappy!!

Not sure why but the last couple of weeks I just haven't felt like scrapping (till yesterday anyway...lol) Must be all the mayhem of Xmas getting on top of me cause I have just been so tired and rundown and my busy period at work doesn't even start till tomorrow. I so hate working in retail!!!!

Anyway I still do have a few layouts to share, amazingly enough!

This was the Dec sketch challenge at Savvy and I have used this Pagemaps sketch ages ago so tried to do something different...

This is the sketch when I did it like forever ago...funny looking back 12 months ago to see how you scrapped back then!!

last fortnight I went to Savvy's crop day and got the next two layouts done, I fully struggled with them...you know when you just don't have the mojo and it is a real effort..

that's it for now......I am also on the look out for any challenge blogs I don't know about as most of my faves are finishing up so leave me a comment if you have some faves of your own....cheers!!!

STB.....Angels or Grinches????

Well I am sad to say that this will be the last challenge for Scrap the Boys and it is a fab chance to get out those Xmas pics!
Challenge is to use in your title "Grinch or Angel" and all layout are due by end of month.

Here is my sample and of course it is all about it never seems I can get that perfect Xmas photo. Last year Isabelle wouldn't even go near Santa and Nate sat there as happy as AND this year Isabelle was soooooo excited and Nate was freaked out!!

I have used the new Xmas range from Collage Press - Joyride, that I picked up from Scrapbook Savvy and it is just gorgeous and can be used for both boys and girls. Sar also has a countdown to Xmas sale which started yesterday at 24% off and everyday it is reduced by 1% so Shop early to get the best discount!!
