Well its definitely time to catch up! Loads has happened since my last post, probably too much to actually write so I'll just post up lots of pics instead. First things first....we've moved!! It was a slightly stressful experience, but when does a move ever go smoothly?!
It's taken a little while but the house is feeling much more like home now. We're supposed to start stripping the wall paper straight away but the thought of turning this place into a mess once more is slightly nauseating.
I managed a weekend off from unpacking and went on a scrapping weekend away with 'The Scrap Cafe' A whole weekend of scrapping, catching up with old scrapping friends and making a couple of news one as well. I managed 3 layouts and a little canvas mini book so had loads of fun.
First layout was to create a layout using "Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue."
Something old - very old cardstock,
something new - new patterned paper
something borrowed - I used Debbies roller thingy tool to rub the very large rub on transfer.
something blue..... my nieces eyes
Next was a sketch challenge from page maps.
And my last layout was to use
* 2 tags
* 3 ribbons
* 4 patterned papers
* 5 buttons
And for this layout I used the cutest photo of our God Son Jonty having a bath
Lastly HALLOWEEN.....as it was our first in our new house we decided to make an effort. We amused ourselves with some pumpkins ;o)
I think they ended up looking pretty amazing, especially seeing as it was our first ever pumpkin carving. We stuck a 'scarey' spider on the roof with 5 foot legs and put red cellophane over a flashlight to get some mood lighting. We expected a fair few trick/treaters as this village is larger than where we last lived but never imagined how many we actually got! Trick Treater Total before the rains set in.....98!!!!
