Wow, it's been a while since I last updated my blog....where has the last month gone? As I keep saying.....life just seems to be going too fast lately....can we please slow down now & enjoy the ride?!?!?

Last weekend a group of us lucky girls went to Neville for our annual scrap retreat (where the heck is Neville I hear you ask!?!?....it's a small tiny little village out the back of whoop whoop (Out the back of Mandurama - which is between Bathurst & Cowra). There is absolutely nothing much at Neville, besides the magnificent Neville Siding - which consists of a great big huge hall (known as the Goods Shed) that has all these old train carriages surrounding it for accommodation). We all had a fabulous time....some scrapped heaps, and others drank/talked/socialised heaps....lol. I managed to get 6 LO's done.....but some aren't completely finished yet....just need journalling etc added. So I will try to get them finished off this week (seeing's it is my week off) and I will try to add them to my blog some time during the week....including lots of photos. :)

Here is an update of my latest LO's....there's quite a few because I haven't posted for so long.

This was the August comp challenge over at Scrapbooknbits....had to use the colours - Permisson (orange), swimming pool (blue/aqua), passionate pink & Green tea. I combined this challenge with one of the frundraiser classes at Scrapping for CF.




These 3 LO's were from Julie's "Dude" workshop over at Scrapbooknbits. I just love the colours of these....and I'm really happy with my finished LO's. Thanks for the fab workshop Julie! :) . Photos are of DS & DH doing what they love most....riding motorbikes!






These LO's were all challenges for the August cyber crop at Scrapbooknbits. Great challenges Karen....totally enjoyed participating and it was alot of fun doing them.




These 2 LO's were from Jane's "Angelique" class over at Srapbooknbits. I just love how both of these LO's have turned out. The bottom one is of my DH's father playing his trumpet....I had been wanting to scrap this pic for such a long time, and Jane's class was just perfect for it....thanks Jane!



This photo is of DH & his beloved boxers & the journalling tells of the special bond that he has with his first ever boxer, April . This was a fundraiser class over at Scrapping for CF




This LO tells the story about my first car....that I had for 17 years! I really wish that I never sold that old girl......she should have been a keeper. Used some of my leftover Dream Street "Arte Noveau" PP's. Love the outcome.
Well, that's about all for now.
Thanks for visiting my blog.....and until next time....Toodlepip!!!
