It's taken me a while this month but here's my page for ASJ, I took elements from all the inspiration pieces and came up with this...

pea soup...

this was the view across the road this morning, eerie but gorgeous.
And then at Jass' 8.30am soccer match, couldn't see from one end of the field to the other when they started.

Simply the Best!

Weekend I've had in ages! There was a CC over at The Boxx with 7 challenges and I got to do them all and then some. The little boys arranged themselves to be out at friend's places on both saturday AND sunday so I only had to do a little housework, feed them breakfast and dinner, and SCRAP! Awesome :-D .... and it was!

So the CC was all about bling and sparkles, with a few feathers thrown in. I got out some things I hadn't played with in a very long time, I threaded beads (a big ask for me!) misted, painted, fussy-cut, and sewed both by hand and machine, oh, the fun!
So here are my pages....

Dontcha just LOVE scrapping!
Thanks for dropping by :-)

Frosty routine

Gotta love early morning entertainment in the school holidays!
Every frosty morning (and we've had quite a few) gets these two boys out of the house right when they are starting to get rowdy. Off on a 'seek and destroy' mission. Find the sheets of ice before the other, hurl it in the air, watch it smash in a million tiny pieces on the cement.
This morning I was up in time to get hard evidence, I can feel some scrapping coming on .... :-)

American Crafts

I got a smashing prize pack from SM recently, full of AC goodies so I thought I'd have a play with their challenge this week. The only non AC products here are the mist, Dymo and white pen.

New play place

I played at From Screen 2 Scrap this month, think it's the first time, Shazza gave me a shove and I'm glad, it was fun to finally scrap this photo that's been lying around for years!

for Scrap the Boys

Shabby Birthdays

Feeling a little challenged with the whole shabby style atm I had two birthdays so did two layouts for the Let's Get Shabby challenge this month. Thes are my lovely teenagers :-)

The challenge was to use stamping, on the first page I used inkpads straight on the page and embossed the CS with 2 colours of powder, the second one I stamped on the yellow CS.


The July challenge criteria at 123 were
One Word: Passion
One Dominant Colour: Red

One Mystery Technique: Grunge


Mission to Create challenge was
Deborah- Use an office supply
Jocie- Use orange & pink
Nicole- Scrap about an item (no people or animals!)
Vanessa- Rounded Corners
Melissa- Use a punch

I used some post-it notes and staples, but forgot the punch, oh well....
