Back again

Well I have had a heap going on personally and not much time to scrap as the boys have been hit with a viral infection and Corey has got 4 teeth in the space of a week - we have been a very sleep deprived family this week and it's taking it's tole.
We are getting there though and with only his 2year old molars left to get there is light at the end of the long teething tunnel :)

Here a couple of LO's I have done in the last day or so

This one is for a monochromatic challenge at Method Playground - Have never done a mono Lo before and it wasn't the easiest thing for me to do but I am happy with how it turned out.

This one is for a challenge from October Afternoon's blog - you had to use @ least 2 OA patterned paper's from different ranges - I have used Night Life and Hometown ranges.

The last is a sneak peak for my Blindfolded Scrapping Challenge which is on the 7th of April at - checkout the classroom section of the forum for more details...

This is a LO I did for LSBS 52 Pick up Challenge - you had to use a quote for your title - i used BG Marrakech and Dotted swiss and lovin both these products - another challenge goes up tonight can't wait as I am now up to date and have all 12 done - yippeeee!!!!!

Well that's about it for now - chat later :)

I'm back...

Last month vanished before I could say February - I had 3 weekends away in four weeks - yikes!!!!

The first weekend I spent at the lovely Bateman's Bay Beach resort with the boys and Mum, then it was home for a weekend, then I went on a girls weekend with 10 of friends (old and new) to kangaroo valley and then I went away last weekend to Shoalhaven Heads with my sis, BIL and nephew and my boys :)

I loved all three places for all different reasons but if I won a huge lotto win I would pick Kangaroo valley as the place to be :)

Here are some Lo's I completed on my gals weekend away - which also doubled as a scrap weekend, bit of a foodie weekend and definitely a wine weekend - can't wait to do it all again - thanks to Ally, Cass, Kate, Kim, Dani, Carol ,Brige, Cathy and Jen for making the weekend a blast and hopefully a annual event - woohoo....

this one is of my Mum and the boy's at Bateman's Bay...

this one was for the blindfolded scrapping challenge I hold at LSBS on the first tuesday of the month - the gals set me a challenge to used a shaped photo, more than 3 photo's and hidden journalling - the journalling is on the tab above the title:)

I saw these cute little paper clips in Creating Keepsakes and set the gals a challenge when we went away to create their own decorated paper clip - Ally's creation was voted the winner and we all had some fun with it :)

This is one of my bestie's little girls - Janine Kaye took this photo and Lily is totally irrisitable - love how this turned out - I used glimmer mist on top of a paper doily - very spesh indeed :) A lot of these products are from the kit I picked up from Naomi COx - Scraptapestry which the funds of the kit went to the Red Cross VIC fre appeal - very worthy cause :) I scraplifeted the doily idea form Kim Arnold another super talented chiky who happens to be a friend as well :)
I did quite a few 8.5"x11" on my weekend away - they are quick and simple and a change of pace for me but I am enjoying tackling a different size LO - as you can see I am loving that black and white dot paper too ;0

will post again later with come pics from our little adventures - my camera is not talking to my computer- how rude:) - so I had to get a disc done - back soon
