Just adding.......

Forgot to put these ones in - this is another ribbon/flowers LO from the Forever Always newsletter And this is my "Stop the moment running away in style" photo comp entry for this month

CC's everywhere!!

What a busy weekend - and if you want to get inspired, take a challenge and win some fab prizes then get on over to Forever Always for their Christmas in July themed CC - 3 great challenges (one of which I'm in the middle of now) and one for the kiddies too!! Oh, and she's having a 30% off everything christmassy sale too - so get organised early!!
And then......TONIGHT Bon is having a CC over at Bon's Scraps and I'm up first with the challenge - and it's a nice one!! Actually, so is Sheree's but Charm's could be a doozy!!LOL
Here's my LO I did for a comp - just had to use a sketch and it really suited these photos of Claire.

This is a LO I did in an online class last night with Jolene Pienaar - doesn't it look beautiful!! (Hope my mum doesn't read this blog as I'm going to frame this and give it t her for her birthday!!SO shut your eyes, MUM!!)
Other than that I get to clean my house lots and lots cos Bradley is chipping up the cement grout fromt he passage - and having soooooo much fun - NOT!! So much dust everywhere!!

Lots of LO's

Ok this is my scrapjack of Sheree McGee's "Jetty" LO - which I just love and she has ever so kindly put in Bon's Scraps gallery - what a sweetie (see Sheree, I CAN be nice). Doesn't look nearly as good as hers but I've always loved that LO and this photo suited it so well - I've scrapped this one before but this LO is for Darcy's album. Now - want a little bit of inspiration? Try this sketch over at Bon's - you just have to use the sketch, include a flower somewhere on your LO, upload it to the gallery to WIN!!
And here's my example of said sketch..........
Want another sketch for a prize with a difference?? Head on over to Forever Always and do the monthly sketch (here's my example) and if you win - wait for get a LO scrapped by ME!!! Ok - dont' laugh - that really is the prize but I promise I'll do a fabulous job!!! (and if I don't you can shove it in the back of your cupboard or give it to your mother-in-law for christmas!!)
Here's my "ribbons & flowers" Lo for Forever Always - got another of these which I'll put in my next post as I must've gone over my limit for this one!!
In other news, had a huge spend up over the weekend - spent more on scrapping supplies in one sitting than I've ever spent!! But it was too good an opporunity to pass up - 60% off everything and only me and 2 other ladies had the opportunity to shop!!! How good is that - stocked up big on bazzill - so hopefully will save money in the long run - (hehe like that's ever gonna happen!)

Ok I'm going with the uploading the photos first and putting the writing around it so hope this works better. Here's my Lo that apparently in the current SC - kind of a strange LO but anyway!! It's about Josh's rusty/broken windowed van - Bradley made me take these photos just cos he looked so funny - and now they're in a mag!! And this is a LO I did last night - Amie Taylor's monthly sketch over at Forever Always .
Belinda was up so we stayed up late scrapping - which she paid for by the girls not sleeping well and so was a wee bit tired this morning - it was fun though - something we don't get to do often - and I actually finished some stuff that needed doing - but can't share yet. As I'm lacking LO's that I can share at the moment - I'll put this one in - it's one I did for Bon's challenge for the CC over at Bon's last week - criteria being to have a quote, a photo with friends and hand and machine stitching. My god - hand stitching!! So you can see I did the bare minimum.

Had a fab week full of visitors - had Steph call in for a visit on her way home from Yalgoo so it was fabulous to meet her - oh and that reminds me - I was so impressed to be name Hen House Hero of the week over at Chookscraps for my dust storm Lo which Steph nominated!! How cool.
Then we've had people ever since - with mum coming today - so better go do something!! Most stuff is done though due to all the previous visitors!
Thanks Gigi for the 'proper' way to put my photos on this blog thingo - makes more sense to look at it now!!
Oh - and a quick mention - tomorrow is Bons' Scrap n Chat which lots of us can't go to - so keep an eye on the forum as there just may be something for "US who miss out on the scrapping and the first look at all the new goodies" people!! (and so there should !!LOL) With a fantastic incentive to EVERYBODY that enters!!! (and I mean everybody)

You know - just for something different!!
