Stuck?! Sketch Challenge

Just one more layout for the year........  my entry into the Stuck?! sketches challenge for December 15th

The very last day of 2010.

Personally, whilst my year hasn't been all that bad, I'm really looking forward to seeing a New one in, one full of exciting new changes, new beginnings and lots of fun and happiness with Family and Friends.

My scrapping has been on a roll this week - look what happens when I have time off work!

Here's my take on the Kraft it Up December Challenge:

Scrapbook Savvy Sketch - December 2010

I promise this will be the last upload for the day - more likely the year the rate I'm going with being a slack blogger!!

And here's another layout to share with you all.......inspired by December Sketch on Crafty Sketches blog.

Merry Christmas to one and all.  I hope the Festive Season was a happy and joyful one - I know mine was.  And today we are veging out like never before.  And I haven't even started scrapping yet - what the?  I'm just pottering around doing nothing exciting, putting music on my mp3, sorting cds, just boring stuff I've been wanting to get to for ages.

Just a short post, I'll leave you all with this layout for Stuck 1st December Challenge.  This is the Savvy Delights retreat I went to in August this year and it was totally awesome. I didn't know anyone and came away with some good friends -  you know who you are :-)

Wow, what a weekend of adventure!  Well one little adventure that turned into a big deal.  Danielle and I headed down to the Pink Ribbon Savvy Crop on Saturday afternoon.  We didn't get very far, just past Helensburg and we heard and felt the car making a strange noise.  Yep we had a flat tyre.  My first question to Danielle was 'are you in the NRMA?' She said 'nope, but thats ok I know how to change a tyre'.  Such confidence - gotta love her!

It wasn't the nicest feeling being stuck on the side of a highway, 2 females on our own, with semis flying past at 110km per hour, no one bothering to stop, but quite a few people felt the need to beep their horns - whats with that??

We managed to jack the car up, undo the super tight wheel nuts, fit on the spare tyre and voila.  I must say all that under pressure on the driver side wheel, once accomplished we were very proud of ourselves.  I'll admit we were giggling a lot :-)

Here are the after pics

The spare tyre wasn't in good shape, but better than the flat.  So instead of scrapping we turned around and made our way home.....slowly. Very grateful it happened on the way there and not on the way home in the middle of the night.  But still.... Not sure I want to do that again anytime soon!!!! But as per usual I laughed and laughed and laughed, gotta love being able to see the bright side of life

Such an absolutely gorgeous day here today - even too nice to stay inside and scrap!  I spent the morning inthe garden digging in cow manure to hopefully improve the soil (not just a little bit - A LOT!!) and then I mulched my vege patch. I love pottering in the garden when the weather is perfect. 

I finished off this layout last night for the Sept 15th Stuck Sketches Challenge. 

This is the sketch I used for inspiration - go on, give it a go!

WooHoo I'm on holidays - well its only a few days but hey I'm loving every minute of it. 

We have been camping with a group of friends last weekend - had an awesome time, very relaxing, lots of eating and a little bit of drinking too!

I'm going to scrap, catch up with a buddy from Qld for a girly lunch, get quotes for window coverings, and just generally veg out.  I'll be back later with some scrappiness and maybe even a photo or two from our camping weekend away.

An awesome RDO for me today. I woke up in a bad mood, made a coffee and went back to bed and read my book. Just the attitude re-adjustment I needed. I had fun and did some chores at the same time and enjoyed every minute of it. From cooking almond biscotte, to Wii Yoga, to learning how to get video from a memory card onto a dvd, to an afternoon rest, paying some bills and even a bit of scrapping. That was my kinda day.....................why do I have to work???

Well I just had a great weekend with my Mum. Didn't take any photos, but that happens I guess. I briefly watched Max play soccer, then picked Mum up from the airport and we went shopping at Macquarie Shopping Centre, didn't buy much there and I didn't want her going home without buying anything so we went to Bankstown on the way home. A full day of shopping is exhausting! I cooked chicken parmagana for dinner - yummo. A relaxing early night for us all.

Today I did grocery shopping while Mum wandered around our local shopping centre. 2 hours and a couple of pairs of shoes later I dragged her outta there LOL. The rest of the day was filled with setting up a scanner she gave me, cooking indulgent chocolate brownies, playing the Wii, cooking Spinach and Ricotta Canneloni, and preparing some rissoles for the freezer for easy meal nights. Oh and thanks Mum for doing the ironing and folding!!!! What's a mum for hey??!!!!

All in all a good weekend, back to work tomorrow ggggrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
