Scrapping with my Besties

I'm very lucky to spend every second Tuesday with my two besties Linda & Leesh, taking turns at eachother's house and scrapping the (school hours) day away. Here's one I managed at Linda's a fortnight ago which I haven't shared yet, using the gorgeous Bella! Avalon range from Scrapbooking Delights.

Time For A Book...

And a closeup...


Only a week left...

...of June and then we are officially halfway through 2011. How the hell did that happen?!

Being the second half of the month, our next sketch is now up at Stuck?! with lots of DT inspiration for you. I have actually completed two layouts for this sketch...I sent the first off to Sara, not really liking it but cutting close to deadline....then managed another one with last months He's Savvy Kit which I'm MUCH happier with!!

Here is the both of them, bet you like the second one the most as well. =)

Dads Wooden Spoons - me & my big brother Dave when I was a little girl xx

Happy Dragons - Coop & Clay at a Dragons game at WIN Stadium, quite obviously having an absolute blast.

And closeups, just cause I LOVED all the embellies in this Boy Kit!

Don't forget to upload your take over at the Stuck blog before the end of the month for your chance to win some great sponsor prizes.

One sleep till retreat here...I can't wait!

Renee's CC Challenge & Kit Week!

I have only had a chance to get ONE layout done for the June Handmade Cybercrop at Scrapbook Savvy and with my hectic week I can't see me getting the other one I started done. So only one to show off for today. :)

Renee's Challenge was to include a handmade banner on your page, which I had lots of fun making with one of our We're Savvy Kits from a couple of months ago.

Did you...

...see my post on the Purple Pumpkin Blog today? If not, go check it out and leave me some love!!!

While you're there, check out MY sketch for the month of June, which looks like this...

And my page, using the gorgeous April She's Savvy Kit that you'll still find in the store here.

And a closeup, isn't the blue Purple Pumpkin flower just gorgeous!!

All you have to do to enter is complete your layout by the end of the month and make sure you pop some Purple Pumpkin embellishments on your page somewhere. :)

Looks like an early night for me here, not feeling the best and fighting off a sore throat. I MUST be well tomorrow as I have a day of scrapping planned with my besties Linda & Leesh...with Georgie's big school interview thrown in the mix. A big day for all!

Are you Stuck?!

I know I have been of late! Stuck for time, stuck for mojo, stuck for inspiration and definitely stuck for layouts to show off! Thankfully I get a little email sent to me each month from the lovely Sara from Stuck?!, with two gorgeous sketches for me to create with. Always gets the mojo flowing and ends up with another two layouts completed for my collection.

Here's the new sketch designed by Lou.

And my take, very simple but highlights just what I wanted it to.

Don't forget to upload your take over at the Stuck?! Blog for your chance to win some great sponsor prizes.

And my take, a Christmas layout of all things! So not like me!

I promise to...

...scrap more in June! I cannot believe we're in the sixth month of 2011, this year is just flying as is life in general. This month has been a pretty sad state of affairs for me scrap-wise, but I promise to rectify this in June with some scrapbooking as these kids of mine just keep on growing, and keep on doing super cool stuff that needs photographing and therefore scrapping!

I did manage a scrap day with my friend Nat yesterday, a rainy day here in the Gong and got three layouts finished in the process...but only one that I can share today.

For the first time in a while, a 'just because' layout of my little Bronte using some gorgeous October Afternoon absolute fave manufacturer ever.

Touch of Nature, the title coming from a quote by William Shakespeare.

Hope your scrappy total was better than mine for May, I best be checking my totals and update my sidebar.

Thanks for visiting and see you again soon.
