So Sweet

I decided to have a play this month and have a go at the 123 Challenge...

November 123 Challenge is...




Sounded very interesting and challenging to me as i love bright colours...
So off i went to search through my stash for pastel colours. I knew i had the perfect photo - one of my niece on her Christening Day which would suit the criteria...

So what do you think????

I have used lots of Purple Pumpkin goodies on my layout - spotty buttons and crochet dolieys being my ALL time fav!

Here are a few close ups:

So if you haven't checked out this challenge, then you still have a couple of days to have a go .....

You could say that about my blog.....:(

I was even surprised to see when the date of my last post on here.

Alot goes on in everyday life, and sometimes we get distracted and sidetracked....

The girls start swimming club today which is even going to be more hard as you will find me weekdays at the pool from 4-6 everyday.Maybe i need to take down my scrapping gear and have a permanent spot to scrap by poolside!LOL

We had the Hoedown on saturday and instead of the girls saying we want to go home, Andrew and i were saying to the girls that we wanted to go home!

well i better get into things before i try and get girls organised for school and me off to work...

Sketches with A Twist

November Sketch:

For my layout i decided to add a word title which ties in for the latest word for Bird is the Word - SWEET.

Did you spot my Purple Pumpkin buttons on my page???
Well here are some close ups:

If you would like to check out this great sketch by Jules, you can do so here. But remember the twist:

to use a rubber stamp somewhere on your page, as an embellishment, background, title, what ever comes to mind.

Thanks for stopping by and saying hello. I do enjoy your visits.
