Scrap Pile June Sketch
That's all for now

I have scrapped again. I have been totally devoid of scrapping motivation in the past couple of months, but today was the day. I finished three layouts for Scrap Pile and have ordered some more goodies.
The layouts below feature Lily Bee Design papers:

at Scrap Pile is all about Mothers to celebrate Mothers Day. The challenge is to create a layout that celebrates motherhood. This may be Mothers Day photos, a proud mummy moment etc. I have scrapped last years Mothers Day photos ~ terrible blurry photos, but they were the only ones of breakfast in bed that we had, and despite being blurry, the memories are preserved.

it's been over a month, but I have scrapped and I ENJOYED it!!! Was beginning to think my scrapping days were over, but in the past few days the desire to scrap has returned. I have completed my latest assignment for Scrap Pile using a Bo Bunny Timepiece and a selection of Graphic 45 papers, as well as a couple of just because layouts.
And the results:

It has been 12 months since DS really started banging on about getting a pet lizard, and now we have not one but two!!!!
"Henry" and "Lawson" have come to live with us, so named after their scientific name of Pogona Henry Lawsoni.
Never thought I would find reptiles endearing but these little critters are huge time wasters and I spend almost as much time looking at and talking to them as I do the dogs ~ think I've gone a little bit balmy!!! Anyway here they are:

what happened to the rest of February and March?????? Feels like i have just blinked and now it is April although it has been mighty busy at work with a VET audit pending. Only one more week and I will be on holidays ~ woohoo looking forward to that and I only have a few minor work tasks to complete.
Whilst I haven't been very creative on the scrapping front (mojo is awol at the moment) I have been playing around with a couple of bears. Think I am ready to start making them again ~ on my terms this time though, not to order and not to a schedule. Here are a couple of photos of the most recent creations:

somehow in the business of Christmas and the holidays I forgot to load these layouts. The first was my example for the December sketch challenge at Scrap Pile and the second was for the January Inspiration challenge also at Scrap Pile:

the DT challenge at Love Scrappin this month was to create Christmas themed layouts and to feature a paper techinque. I had the gorgeous Pink Paislee Christmas collection to work with and the images just screamed to be cut out so my paper technique was fussy cutting.
And the results:

for one week and my blogging has gone to hell in a handbag!! Note to self ~ get that fixed!! Work has been OK despite a heatwave since Australia Day where the daytime temps haven't dropped below 39C and the overnight low has been 28C. A cool change expected late tomorrow afternoon and then down to 26C on Monday ~ bring it on. Given the recent catastrophic weather conditions and resulting damage and loss of life in QLD, I'm not complaining , just making note.
On the scrapping front I am in charge of the Sketch Challenge over at Scrap Pile this month:

I'd like to say I've been busy and that's why this poor blog has been neglected, but I can't!! I am however very rested and have caught up on all the trashy day time TV that I miss when I'm at work. The past week has been busy though. DP's daughter came to visit from NZ so we did some nice things:
Monday ~ sightseeing in Sydney, including lunch at the Sydney Tower revolving restaurant
Wednesday ~ retail therapy at Charlestown Square and Westfield Kotara
Friday ~ Waterpark and beach (beach was amazingly GOOD)
Saturday ~ out for dinner
Sunday ~ more retail therapy
The visit went well and some questions answered.
DS came home from his trip to Perth with his Dad.
Needless to say I didn't have much opportunity to do any crafting, but I did finish some DT layouts for Scrap Pile:

Etsy!! I have bought a few items from Etsy (I could buy a few items everyday - there are so many gorgeous items on there - my favourites list grows everyday!!) ~ some mini canvases and a couple of necklaces ~ one for my Mum for Xmas that she absolutely loved.
Yesterday I ordered a variation of this from the Etsy store Shabby Chic Designs
