Brace yourself- this is a huge post!

Firstly, I apologise to my fellow Songbird ladies- I haven't gotten to all of your blogs yet, but I absolutely adore all of the work you ladies have done! I dunno how you all found me so quickly- but as soon as I have a chance(so I don't stuff it up,lol)I will add your blogs to my sidebar! After seeing the standard of work, I am amazed I was chosen, coz honestly , they are talented! If you haven't checked out the other Songbirds, I will have their links here soon, promise!
I have LOADS to share, as I have been scrapping up a storm this past week! Jacob has been on the computer heaps, so I have been scrapping, not blog surfing,lol! My first layout was for Renae's Random Challenge, I think it has been about twelve months since I did one of these, and I had to use a painted background,stitching, and a hand made embeelie, which is my flower up the top. I love this layout, so stoked with how it turned out! Renae also set a RAK challenge, so the only photo I had with navy in it was this one of my mum and her husband Lindsay. This was definitely a late night job, I finished it at 1.15 this morning! But I like the way it just came together- it doesn't happen too often!
Forever Always are starting a new competition this weekend, an Aussie comp, and we also have the cybercrop this weekend too! So if your mojo is ata astandstill, jump over and have a looksey, as I am sure you will be inspired by all the talented scrapper's work there! Going to aisle seven TODAY Sonia!
This next layout was my entry for this month's Scrap The Boys. I am a newbie to this one! It was great to dig out some old stuff for this one, I think I have had that hessian for four years....and the October Afternoon papers are sooo cute. My Jake - the most devious nephew an aunty could wish for!
I also have uploaded Bianca's Megmeg layout. She just adores our dog,Meg, and always plays with her. I swear if she could have her sleep in her bed, Bianca would! She has been wanting me to share her scrapping, so I will upload as she does more. I have done my Puzzle Sketches layout for this month about Bianca and Meg- Sweet Puppy Love! I love the photos on this one! Honestly, Meg shoves her head into everything you do! She is such a part of the family, and has some very endearing qualities. The joys of Bull Terrier ownershio- a stubborn, nosey dog who loves to be cuddled!
My Christmas layout was for the Scrapbook Savvy Scraplift challenge. Julie Heard was the scrapper we had to lift this month. I stuck woth a simple approach, as I didn't want to overpower the mighty Santa photo! Especially since it took Jake's help to get Aleisha to go near him! I totally love the DarkroomDoor stamps too! Only eleven months to go til Christmas!!!!
Well, best be off, my housework is calling me, and the washing machine has just finished chugging through another never-ending supply of washing! Have fun, and don't forget to visit FA this weekend- it's gonna be huge!!!! Oh, and I almost forgot, Sonia has been super-busy, but has done a magnificent job of revamping the site- it looks DIVINE!!!! See-ya!
