glorious day. After a few hours in the yard I've been organising my scrapping for the week and fininshing a few layouts. Still a few February challenges I would like to complete this week, but just have to see what time permits.
I've finished two more monthly challenges for Let's Scrap:
Challenge # 3 inspired by another Stuck! sketch

and Challenge # 4

Also managed to complete one of the cybercrop sketches from Let's Scrap as well

Hopefully I am starting to get into the habit of making more regular posts!

was just perfect!! A lazy lay in ~ just what was needed after a hectic week, Riley happily playing with his buddy next door and Steve working on his music ~ my time was my own. A few mandatory chores and by 9.30am I was happily editing some photos for a few challenges I want to complete over the next few days. Then onto some scrapping. It just doesn't get any better than that. I completed a layout a for Let's Scrap challenge, inspired by a Stuck! sketch:

Speaking of Let's Scrap it's cybercrop night.
I am responsible for one of the challenges tonight:
Include 3 photos ~ any size
Use a minimum of three different patterned paper (reverse sides count)
Use mixed media in your title
Include a heart ~ could be an embellishment, shaped journalling block etc
Handwritten journalling
and this is my layout:

Well that's all for now. Off to scrap!!

where have the past few weeks gone??? As usual work has been extraordinarily busy ~ think I'm going to be really tired by the time the holidays roll around!!

On the scrapping front, I've had some good news. My "Pose" see post below won the sketch comp over at Mystical Scrapbooks and my "Every Puppy Dog"(also below) layout has been picked up by For Keeps for publication. I'm a very happy camper.

In between the craziness of work I have found some time to scrap. I have finished my DT layouts for Let's Scrap(will share later) and completed a couple of challenges:
Musical Madness (Mystical scrapbooks)round 2 Heavy Metal layout

and round 3 Jazz layout

and February 123 Challenge

I have made it into Round 2 of the Bons Scraps DT Comp and received some goodies today. Lots of ideas swimming around.
Off to scrap a bit more now. Tomorrow night is Cybercrop night over at Let's Scrap and I am setting one of the challenges. Hopefully see you there.

where have the last three weeks gone?? Since returning to work life has been manic!!
The last weekend of the holidays we had a four day getaway at Hallidays Point with Trish and her boys ~ such a perfect way to end the holidays. Riley had a ball surfing and skating with Alex.

Then back to work, and whilst not really a challenge,the task of taking charge of 220 something Year 7 students has proven very busy and tiring. Thankfully, nearly three weeks into the term they are settling in and life at work is settling down. Just so thankful I was totally organised with my senior classes. Riley is back at school and really happy with his class and teacher ~ so happy for that.
On the scrapping front, not alot happening ~ either been too busy with work commitments or too tired. My Every Puppy layout (see post below) however, was successful and won the monthly kit comp over at BonsSraps.
This past weekend I complete two challenge layouts: my calendar girls January LO for Scrapworld

and Mystical Scrapbooks Feb Sketch #1

I am also participating in the Musical Madness comp at Mystical Scrapbooks and my round 1 entry for the classical theme was the following:

In my quest to join another DT I have entered Round 1 of BonsScraps DT comp so now waiting to see if I'm heading into Round 2.
Over at Let's Scrap we now have a Myspace page. I'm not at all familiar with this so need to spend some time there on the weekend to sort out my page. Will post the links when I get it sorted.
Would love to go and do some scrapping now, but the wearies are setting in and we are heading to Brisbane this weekend, so I think it would be best to get an early night.
