Catching Up- A long one.

It's catch up time. There just doesn't seems to be enough of any time at the moment. I'm so far behind in my blog drops ins. Thanks to all of you who are still dropping by visiting me. I really do appreciate it. I'm hoping next week after all my commitments are finished I'll have time to drop in on you.

Been meaning to post the new challenge that's up at Once Upon A Sketch. 

 This is such a wonderful design. I reckon it's one of my favs so far from the lovely Nadia. The dt girls have done an awesome job showing their fabulous talents off as women and their creative talents as scrappers.
    Heres what you can win.

A fabulous chipboard collection for 1 randomly chosen winner by Imaginarium Designs.  

A stunning collection of goodies to the value of $25.00 to one randomly chosen winner from The Chip Chop Shop 

The winner of this challenge receives this embellishment collection from BasicGrey's Jovial  fabulous Christmas line.

We're off on our big trip in exactly two weeks. Yikes. I haven't even thought about packing. Although the kids are started. Their suitcases are sitting in the living room and each day they seem to add a little more. Pretty cute really.  It'll be the first time in five years that all my family will be together. We're all so excited. Hoping we don't give my parents heart attacks when they see everyone. lol

Here's the lastest one I did with the Summer flower collection over at Manor House Creations.
Papers are all from The Scrap cake. Once again wishing you some summer sunshine.

 Not the clearest pic of Sienna taken by her bro. But the pose makes me smile and sometimes it's nice to scrap the imperfect ones. The pic was taken on a camping trip where they were have so much fun playing and snapping pics of each other.

The clothes line reminds me of the ropes strung between the trees at the campsites.

Here's some early Christmas los too. They're in this month's Scrapbook Creations magazine. The Colour Team were all given different colours to scrap for the Christmas feature. I was lucky I scored the easy colours- red and blue. We were allowed a second colour used minimally and neutral colours of b/w and beige to compliment.

Ok does anyone see something that doesn't belong in this pic? lol

Most of the pp is last years Bo Bunny. When you scrap for Christmas features it's usually 4 months ahead and most of the new Christmas lines aren't out.

I used so of my left over dt stash from Dusty Attic for these adorable little houses.

  Here's my two looking ever so cute and cuddy for a Christmas pic on Christmas day last year. It's the best day to get smilie pics. lol

To use the words taken from the lo, "May health, peace and sweet content be yours," dear friends.
