Some pages and some news too

I've had a nice and relaxing first week of long service and have done not much of anything at all. A little housework, some food shoppping and some scrapping too.
My missy ended up coming home from school at lunch time today as she wasn't feeling well, felt hot but no temp and has been sleeping most of the arvo on the lounge. Hope she is feeling better for school tomorrow as I was going to be heading up to the craft fair with a friend and if not Craig is just going to have to have a day home on Saturday with her.
Here is what I have done.

This weeks challenge was to do a pale blue monocramatic layout including a hand made embellie, stitching and a non scrapping product with the theme of sloth and I so had to scrap this photo of our Reenie spread out sound asleep on Missy's bean bag. I used bubble wrap as my non scrap item and made up a flower with some lace and ribbon.
It just so happened that my new lot of Purple stamps came in yesterday so I used the Doodled frame set to make my cloud window and the title box and a triangle shaped stamp from the Ornamentals set to do my trees.


123 Challenge

It has been a while since I have played along with a 123 chalenge and I had some fun with this one using up some older papers in my stash. We had to include a long mixed alpha title, a journal spot and three ribbons.

I used my favorite journal stamp from Purple Onion the Scallop circle and just added some lines to journal on.


Just scrapping

I took home some of the new Wisteria papers the other day to put togther a card set class. Here is a sneek peek of what I came up with.A date is yet to be set but I'll update the side bar when it is.

And as for my news. Jordie has asked me to be a part of the design team there. I picked up my first pack today and can't wait to have a play with it and my new Hero Arts stamps.

Well that is it from me for now as always thanks for popping in, any comments and happy scrapping.
