Holy Crap, it's HOT!!

My gosh....not long finished work and so over sweating all day, thank gosh for air conditioning, and they say tomorrow is meant to be hotter!! It's so hot in my scrap room.....I so want to scrap as I have a card to make and a few layouts in mind plus my order from Little Scrapbook shop arrived yesterday and you all just know how excited you get when you get that new parcel full of goodies!!! but there is no way I am tearing myself away from the air con. Maybe tomorrow although it is looking more and more like a pool day for us.

So I still have a few layouts to share from the weekend, most are from Savvy's Cybercrop and this is def may fave for the week. We had a colour theme of white, yellow, blue. aqua and this is my take on it...

and this was the sketch challenge...

also managed to get done the sketch for Scrap the Girls using the new Basic Grey range, Origins.....totally loving the colours!!

and lastly this layout has been around for a few weeks now and was a just because one and I think I used an old sketch from 52 weeks, which has shut down now unfortunately!

so that's it for me now and I hope you all have a fab weekend and Australia Day, cause I know I will!!

Weekend of scrapping...

I finally found the mojo I had been looking for and actually scrapped on the weekend. First off I attended the LSS, Scrapbooking Delights, for a crop on Friday night and it has been absolutely ages since I have gone and had a great time.....I just wish I could go on a regular basis but with hubby on night shifts normally it is hard. So here are the two LO's i got done.

This is sketch #39 at Inspired Blueprints, they always have fab sketches to work with....love them!!

and also sketch #38 which was perfect for these photo's I have been hanging onto!!

and lastly I have Anna's craft cupboard January sketch, and yes I have started the dreaded task of scrapping Xmas photos'......I so struggle with these and I just recently uploaded my photo's off my camera from the xmas period and there was over 500 pics!! Scary!!

More coming soon.....

It has been so Long!!!

My gosh I just realised how long it has been since I have blogged!! I have just been so busy with Xmas, New Year and spending time with my family. I think I have scrapped two pages in about a month!! lol
I have decided that this year I def need to start balancing my time between work, family, health and scrapping because I have just spent way too much time scrapping last year. I am focusing more on family and health this year, well that's the plan anyway

So all I have to share are some pics from the weekend which we spent down at Little Lake. The kids had a great time swimming and playing in the sand. and oh yeah their fave....chasing seagulls!!!

this is my gorgeous niece Emily and Nate at the lagoon in Wollongong

and Emily and Isabelle

and the biggest kid of all Damo!!!

I'm heading to a crop on Fri night at the LSS so hopefully should have some layouts to share....that's if I have any mojo happening!
