I'm in holiday mode....

Yep, it's official - yesterday was my last day at work, until mid January (wooohooooo), so I am now officially in holiday mode :).  We are heading down to Sydney on Thursday & then fly out to Norfolk on Saturday - for one whole week of fun & relaxation.....bring it on I say...lol

I didn't think I had done much scrapping this week, with getting organised to go away & just the busy time of year, but surprisingly, I have done 6 LO's since my last post just over a week ago :)

^^  Happiness Is....  Using Bon's Dec boy kit....love the colours in this kit - just gorgeous!

^^  Irish Eyes - my take on Felicity's class over at Bon's - I changed a few things around as I didn't have fabric that suited the LO - but still love it.  Thanks Felicity :)

^^  Not your average day at the track - A just because LO

^^ Archery queen - One of the Dec CC challeges at Scrapboutique - to use more than one photo & to tell the story of what the photos are about - thanks Manon!  awesome challenge.

^^ Christmas Joy - Another Dec CC challenge at Scrapboutique.  I had to use the colours Pink, Green & Red, some stamping...and the word Joy in the title.  I really LOVE how this one came out...especially the colours! 

^^  Deep in thought - Sunday roast at the Scrapboutique CC...using my own suggestion of ingredients - orange & blue, knot tieing & ribbon....and then using Amanda's instructions (kind of like a blind scrap)....this is the finished LO.  Love it - thanks Amanda!

Well, that is all from me for now....I probably won't be posting again until after we are back from Norfolk.
So, I'd like to wish everyone a safe & merry christmas....and looking forward to scrapping & chatting with you all in 2010.....

Less than 2 weeks until.....

The big fat jolly fella in red comes hauling his big ol sack full of prezzies!!! Hope everyone is on his "nice" list, rather than the "naughty" one...lol
Not sure which one I'll be on :-o

Just a quick post today to catch up on some layouts I've done over the past week or so....

^^ "Santa Claus is coming to town" - This was my entry for the December Scrap the Girls challenge...to use Christmas carol lyrics for a title - Bling - Orange paper - & a Yellow embellishment. Love how this one came out :)

^^ "Good Times" This one was a free class over at Bon's Scraps - by the lovely Skye Johnson using Bon's Nov girl kit.

^^ "Meeting the Yamaha team" - A just because I felt like scrapping type of LO - not part of any challenges etc. Used bits & pieces from a What is Old is New kit ....plus from my stash.

^^ "2009 Amcross" - This one is for the Dec Stash stomper challenge over at Scrapboutique....which was to scraplift Amanda's gorgeous LO & use some of that never ending tangle of ribbon that seems to accumulate in one's stash...lol.

If anyone is interested in joining in on the Dec free class that will be hosted by our gorgeous Felicity on Monday 14th Dec - 7.30pm QLD time .....then head on over to Bon's scraps & register for the forum, if you're not already registered! Felicity is scrapping such awesome layouts lately....so why not come along & join in !?!?!.

Well, that's all from me for now.....life has been super busy & I am counting down the days until we have our little getaway to Norfolk :).

I hope everyone's having a top weekend....thanks for dropping by :)

1st of December....

Means it's getting close to christmas!!! My gosh, I really don't know where this year has gone....it seems like we just celebrated christmas 08 only a few months ago! Scarey stuff :s

1st December also means new challenges (YAY)....I always love the 1st of each month...finding out what all the new challenges will be!

For Scrap the Boys this month, sadly, it will be the last challenge as Susan has decided that due to personal commitments she is no longer able to continue the upkeep of the blog. :(

As they say, all good things much come to an end :(

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time on the Scrap the Boys CT team....loved every minute of it & just wished that I could have gone on forever with it. Thanks Susan for giving me the opportunity of scrapping alongside such a lovely bunch of talented ladies....it's been wonderful to be part of such a fantastic team.

So, without further ado....here is this months challenge.....

Is your boy a grinch or a christmas angel? Capture your boys being a right little grinch or perfect angel. Use the word "Grinch" or "Angel" in your title.

Here is my sample.....

^^ DH being a bit of both - Grinch & Angel (lol)... last christmas. Just used all scraps for this one because I have discovered that that's all I have left in the way of christmas papers :-0 ..... might need to do something about that!

And here are a few more scrappy shares.....

^^ My entry for WIOIN sketch challenge for November - This is a really OLD pic of Kate back in 1995 making damper while we were camping at Wee Jasper....oh what fun memories :)

^^ A LO using the Nov girls kit from Bon's - loved the versatility of this kit....because I also did a boys LO using the same kit....

^^ And here is the boy LO using the same kit - Joel having one of his many jamming sessions - I'm sure you all hear his sister complaining & protesting whenever she is home....don't ya's???? lol. sometimes she makes more noise with all the complaining than what he does on the guitar!!

^^ Lest we forget .....November challenge at Scrapboutique - given that Nov 11 was rememberance day to do a LO paying homage to that special someone who served our country. Must have one photo, a flower (eg. Poppy) & at least 20 words of journaling. This is a photo of my Grandfather who served in WW1 on the Western Front in France. I really loved doing this LO & have been wanting to scrap this photo of him for so long - so glad that this challenge got me motivated to get it done.

^^ She will always be my Georgie Girl - November challenge at Scrapbook n Bits. Again, to scrap about something special to you using a sketch.

^^ This one was my first ever roast over at Scrapboutique for their recent cyber crop...and wow what fun it was!!! Kind of like a blind scrap, I guess you'd say...using certain ingredients.....just love how my LO turned out

^^ And this one was a colour challenge from the Scrapboutique cyber crop also. Pic is of Georgia & Oscar, when we first brought him home as a little puppy....he just adored Georgia so much - I'm 99% sure that he really thought that she was his mother....God love him.

I managed to get most of my christmas shopping done today - 8 hours spent in Bathurst, just walking around....my feet are killing me & I'm totally buggered!!! But at least I have the majority of it done now....YAY. And it was also my last trip to Bathurst for the year - my gosh am I glad of it too!!! I may still need to take Joel when Tafe first starts back next year....depending on when it starts back & when he gets his P's. & then I will just be worrying myself sick with him driving himself each week.....oh the joys of parenthood!!!
Hope everyone is having a great week.....
