I Finally

Scrapped!!!
Well finished off the layout that has been sitting on my desk for the last 3 weeks, well I think it has been 3 weeks, anyway it has been ages...
So here it is...
Hopefully my scrapping dry spell has broken now... that is my traditional scrapping dry spell I have been doing some digital pages which I will share with you all now.
All these digital pages are for challenges over at Soul Scrappers.
For my quote challenge...
For Shazza's Ebony and Ivory challenge...
For Mary's word challenge...
And for Jami's theme challenge...
I have been culling lots of stuff around the house lately, gosh you just forget how much stuff that gets put to the back of the cupboards. Our wall unit was about 28 years old and the other day while dusting it I noticed that pieces were fall off it, so yesterday I emptied it all out. Found staff I forgot I had, like 2 dinner sets that were given to us as a wedding present, lol...and the wall unit has gone to the dump now (a bit sad to see it go has my parents gave it to us as a wedding present). Now I have this space along one wall that is bare, DS keeps saying it looks odd. Next I want to start in the office/scrap room, it really need a good clean out. Hubby is totally shocked as he has always called me a hoarder and now I am getting rid of stuff left right and center. St Vincent's is going to love me when I take in all this surplus goodies, well I think there are lots of needy people out there that can use it instead of just throwing it in the bin, mind you lots did go in the bin...
Ok that is enough raving for now, hoping to do more scrapping tomorrow.
Until next time take care :)

With 2...

Jobs I am finding that I don't have as much time to scrap as I would like. I am hoping that things settle down after I get into a routine, here's keeping fingers crossed!
I do have a few digital pages to share. All of these are for challenges over at Soul Scrappers.
For Shazza's Lyric/Song challenge we had to use either a line or the title of John Farnham song ├Żou're the voice'. So this my page I created, I used a photo of my grand daughter Summah when she was a toddler and she was into making lots of noise.
Next is my layout for Jami's theme challenge 'Beach'. I used a photo from one of our Bali trips.
For Debi negative challenge sketch 1, Debi created a fantastic sketch and of course we had to have negative space. The photo is of my niece on her wedding day.
Next is my take on Erika's about me challenge. We had to create a page about someone we share a special bond. My sister and i have a special bond.
For Karen's sketch challenge I created this page using a photo of my oldest son when he was 3 years old and he was monkeying around while I was trying to take a photo of him.
Kris set the digital challenge and we were only allowed to use 2 other elements besides our base paper. Mia was so cute in this photo, I just had to use it with minimal distractions of other elements on the page.
So that is all the scrapping I have done lately.

Necessity is the mother of...

well that is the theme of the challenges set by the girls over at Scrapz this past week. There were 5 challenges set for this week but I only got to do 2.
I did the 'what's cooking' challenge set by Kerryn and Georgia's 'scrap it blind' challenge. I am really please with how both of my pages turned out. Well anyway here they are and see for yourself...
Scrapping will most likely be taking a back seat for a while for me. I got a phone call today and drum roll please...
I have gotten a second job
start on Tuesday with orientation. Had the interview for this job weeks ago but didn't think I got it so forgot all about it. Well you can imagine how much of a shock it was when I got the phone call today. I am every excited and nervous at the some time :)
