Quick catch up

Hey there,

YAY the school holidays are over. Our holidays were pretty boring, just hanging around at home mainly. We had hoped to do a few activities however the weather made it hard. We had no power for almost 2 days due the storms. The weather was terrible, with so much damage. We were lucky, I guess. The boys were driving us mad. "When can I use the computer, Why can't I watch the TV?" This went on and on and that was just Bailey. Declan asked"does this have power, does this have power, what about this?". The second night was so cold and they had just had enough but I bought a torch and a pack of glow sticks for each of them and they made pictures with the glow sticks on the lounge room floor and played tiggy on the ceiling with the torches. Hey whatever works. LOL
I have a few LO's I wanted to share.  The first is one I did as a sample LO for a new challenge blog. Word pictures. Run by Tracey and Jodi from Enchanted scrapbooking . You scrap a page using a set of instructions pretty cool. I also used one of my kits from Enchanted scrapbooking to do this LO. I love this kit.


The next few pictures are from the KTM CC challenges
The first two are from Michelles card challenge.

This LO was for a challenge to scrap with something from the kitchen set by Delys. So much fun. I used some tin foil on the LO and on the grungeboard crown, which up close looks great because you can see the texture of the grungeboard coming through. I used a bottle brush to paint the background and used a container from frozen food to stamp on the foil and then made the embelies from it.

The last one was from Nic's interpretive challenge. I loved seeing everyones take on this.

Oh well that's it for now. I was hoping to keep up weekly posts and for this week I have so I'm happy. OOPS wasn't such a quick catch up after all.
TFL chat soon

Hey Suzi, great work! The scrapping word pictures site does sound like fun. Funny how you're talking of holidays being over and ours haven't even started yet.

Hey, I think no power and two boys for two days would be almost tortorous... Those storms looked very bad on TV.... glad you all survived it.
