Week One

... and we are off and racing, I mean scrapping - LOL!

Week One challenge is to scrap a layout with a Kiwi Icon or Landmark

My take on this, featuring a pic from our holiday in Auckland in April - 'Chillin' at Viaduct Basin'

You have until midnight on Thursday 5th August to upload your creations - so get scrapping!

Got scrap gear packed for Scrap Sunday tomorrow with some of the girls, really looking forward to it as have missed the last two months because of other commitments.

Off now to watch the rest of the All Blacks v Wallabies game - proving to be an action packed game, best match up I have seen between these 2 teams for a while. Also trying to spy my bro in the crowd ;) Next weeks rematch in ChCh could be very interesting - hubby is heading up for it - I'll just be home in front of the TV watching!

I'm still here ...

sorry ... bit of blog neglect going on ... but truly, where have the last few weeks gone? Actually for that matter where have the last 6 months raced away to? As the saying goes 'time flies when you are having fun' and I would have to agree!

Now for ScrapbookOutlet news - have you seen that the kits are back? July one was sent last week ...
I was lucky enough to have a sneak play with the kit before it was officially released. Gorgeous product in there from October Afternoon, Crate Paper, Webster Pages, Pink Paislee and Prima.

My layouts ...

and a couple of cards ...

Have a few more projects completed which will be revealed at the end of next week.
Now if you prefer a brighter palette of colours then I recommend jumping in quick and grabbing August's kit - OMG it's gorgeous! I might even have to get myself a second kit because I can see endless possibilities for layout/card and minibooks!!!

Hope those of you with kids home for school holidays are surviving! My lounge yesterday resembled a HotWheels mini town with cars and trainsets all over - now it is a cafe with mini oven and plastic food all around. Not to mention the dining table has stickers, scraps of paper and paint daubers on it - none of which are mine. But at least they are happy - not fighting too much (yet). I have spent a couple of days working but have the rest of the week to relax with them and cram in a few activities in town, but then again I might just stoke up the fire and stay home and scrapbook with the goodies from SBO that landed on the doorstep this morning ;)
