I "am" still here.....

Oh really has been a while hasn't it? I am so sorry for my lack of blogging....I am not going to bore you with what has been happening - but let's just say I have been super busy!

Plans are going well! This retreat is going to be fabulous! Would you like to come? If so, please let me know as soon as possible and I will forward you all the details and everything you will need to know! Caloundra - here we come! September can't come soon enough I tell you!

There has been lots of that happening! I have been in a Circle Journal swap over at Artistic Document - the first one I have ever been has been lots of fun - I have just two more to take the pics for and then I am done! I have also been a part of the ATC Swap over there! I am loving ATC's at the moment!

ScrapLounge has the monthly sketch and technique challenges - this month the technique is Decorative Borders.

And the gorgeous sketch was done by Kym! Here is my layout from the sketch! The photos are of my gorgeous girls and I on Mother's Day. We had such a nice morning out (just before I had to head up the Sunshine Coast for a derby game) at the Nerrima Gardens at Queen's Park in Ipswich. Oh and Macca's for breakfast - YUM!

And of course there is the "Be Inspired" challenge that I put up every month to try and get you thinking outside of the box!

I also decided that I would join in the fun of some blog challenges - I only got one done and guess what??? I won!!!! I was so excited I tell you! This was for Fancy That Scrapbooking! It was a sketch challenge and you all know how much I love sketches! Here is my layout for that one!

And how about that....all three layouts with photos of me! That just never happens!

Well that will do for now! Can't wait to come back and chat some more soon!

Well hello, hope you and your family are all well, I love love your layouts you have here and not surprised you have a winner. I would love love love love to go to a retreat and you know I won't make this one as I start work next Wednesday but next year I will have accumulated heaps of leave and mum would maybe help out. So miss your shop, I haven't bought anything new for ages, I love the papers you used for the first layout, perfect for my boy pages, again, hope you are well, think of you often. MElxx
