At last-a chance to blog!

Lots to share too!!!! We have been super busy here of late, and I have been baking and all sorts too, and having some much needed me and significant other time! Jacob and I have sat up chatting and telly watching, and I have loved just "being" with him. I have major scrapping withdrawals though! Here is my latest edition for the TRUE BLUE AUSSIE SCRAPPING COMPETITION over at the ever fantastic FOREVER ALWAYS!! We had some pieces, like Puzzle Sketches( oops, mental note, haven't done Feb challenge yet!) and we could only add one more thing, and we had to use either photos of a building, or a bridge.I took these pjotos from Bribie last year, and they have been in the "To Scrap" pile....well, not anymore, they are now scrapped!I took ages to get this one done- thankfully I am off and running with this weeks challenge though! Here is my February White With One layout- I totally love how this turned out! It's not often that the creaive path stays true...this one looks exactly like it did in my head! I reckon I will still be scrapping Malissa's wedding shots for the next three years,lol!Jacob had to help me drive my circle cutter though-it has been yonks since I used it, and lateral thinking just wasn't happening the other night!
If you get the chance, zip over to Inkurable Stampers....I did this card for Sarah's latest challenge, which is a technique called Soot Stamping. She has an AWESOME tutorial on her blog, and she is a wonderful supporter of those who have lost so much in the Victorian Bushfires. Oh, and this was kinda fun!!!

Yeah, I know, perhaps a little plain, but I wanted it to look a little elegant, as it was for my friend's 40th.Then I changed my mind, as it is my S-I-L Tammy's birthday next week, and she loves handmade it's hers now,lol! But I have stocked up on gloss card to make more:)

If you haven't already- don't forget to check out the latest SONGBIRD SCRAPS challenge- the Creative Team ladies( my fellow team members, who are SUPERDUPER creative- have all got our samples up for you to see. Here is mine:-

My B-I-L is such a big kid, and I swear he only operates machinery so that he never loses the kid in a sandpit feeling! When he dug out our yard the other week for our pool, he was pulling stunts and moves on the machine...just like a boy with his Tonka trucks, so of course, I had to take some shots!!! Richie you have been scrapped too now! I loive how all of the team have come up with something totally different too- I wanted a masculine feel to mine, hope I did it!!!
Well, my muffins are cooked, better go take them from the oven! I will be back later to do more blog updating,links and stuff! Ciao for now!:) Thanks for stopping by my realm!
