Kraft It Up!

Oops! Did my entry for Kraft it Up last week and thought I had already linked it but I hadn't! Today's the last day...lucky I didn't remember tomorrow.
This month's challenge was to create a lo without any patterned paper. I've done these before and never been happy with the end result, but finally I've created a page I'm happy with, despite it not having any pp!
Quite simple.....but hopefully effective.

I've just arrived back from Perth where I managed to sneak in a trip to Ikea to buy some boxes to fill the shelf my BIL has just donated to my scrapping room. Finally everything will match (and hopefully fit!) Can't wait til tomorrow when I have a day off so I can start shuffling and trying to find new homes for everything! Stay tuned.....

Scrap the Girls

The month is nearly over so finally I have gotten around to completing my Challenge!
My "Important Female" is my one and only DD. (well, she's always the second "D", not always the first! That's why it was so nice to scrap a nice page about her!)

And this one I did for MSR (My Scraproom Rules!) at Scrapping Outback 

This was week 1. I'm not sure if I'll get Week 2 done as I have to head off to the city. :(  But i'll try! :)

Thanks for looking!

Quick update

Got a busy weekend planned....quick dinner tonight with friends who left town a few years ago, then off to a 30th birthday celebration where we get to get all frocked up and eat chocolate (what more could a girl want!?) Tomorrow footy season starts with a 7.30am check in at the next town, so that's definitely an early start for us. Sunday is the start of soccer. Bad timing since I planned to have a ME day being Mother's Day and all...oh well.
And somewhere in there I need to squeeze in a few more visits to my new nephew Oliver born yesterday.
This week I've had a trip to Perth and Bunbury (2000 kms in 2 days!), the boys have had squash, soccer and footy training already, and when I arrived home last night, before I had to turn around and go to a soccer meeting, I found my house full of family coming for a roast dinner! Shame I couldn't stya and eat with them but it was yummy just the same.
Phew..is it any wonder I had to come home from work early with a migraine!? had a nap though and feeling ready to take on the world again.
Right...the update I promised!

These are the pages I did for the newsletter at Country Papercraft
