Stuck?! Again!

Good Morning everyone,

Hows life with you all? Its settling down for me, slowly but surely and I'm making sure I enjoy every minute of this precious life we have (sorry, bit heavy I know).  I have lost my mojo, its been gone for quite a few weeks now, I have absolutely no desire to scrap.  This is what I came up with when I forced myself over the last couple of weeks, it's based on the 1st February Stuck!? Sketch

I feel like it's missing something, But I have no idea what, so any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated.

And this is one I persevered with this week.  It too seems to be lacking something???
Inspiration is from Creative Scrappers Sketch #141

Enjoy what's left of your weekend, I know I will as I'm out with the family for a Big Birthday lunch for me today!!!  Its only around the corner at Rock Salt but we're getting picked up so DH and I have have a drink or 3 - sssoooooo looking forward to it.

Chow for now xxx

Here's my take on in.....

I'm sorry I stapled it around the edge, oh well, I guess I'll learn by my mistakes.

Let me know if you've tried it, I'd love to see your creation.

I love a relaxing life

Don't you just love it somedays when the whole day is spent relaxing, doing stuff just for YOU.  And these are the days I appreciate more than ever.  Especially when there's a little bit of scrapping involved.  I thought I'd lost my mojo but I've managed to drag it out of its hiding place.

The following layout 'pub crawl' was inspired by Anthea's monthly sketch over at Savvy

Here's hoping my mojo is back to stay!!

Scrappy Blog

Time for a very quick Blog update with a couple of layouts I have scrapped.  The past few weeks have seen very little scrapping by me - I'm not sure why, I just don't have the inclination to do it, and it's not like I haven't wanted to, I sit down and try to start a layout and get stuck and end up doing something totally different.

The first layout is of the middle nephew welcoming his new cousin Zane: (love love love Echo Park Paper!)  - completed based on a Storyboard Sketch

And this layout is 'He makes me laugh' - I am the luckiest girl in the world to have married this man.  13 years this week.

What's everyone up to this weekend?  Just a few things on for us, plenty of scrapping time available, I just hope I can get into it.

It's Hot

Anyone living in Sydney this past week knows exactly what I'm talking about.  Now I don't feel the heat as much as most Sydney-siders (must be my QLD blood) but this week even I have put the air-conditioner on at about 4pm most days.

I have been lucky enough to have had this past week off and guess where I spent every day - The Beach.  Who wouldn't, its been unreal.  Every morning I get up, drive down to Cronulla, go for a long walk in the soft sand till I'm stuffed, then walk back and relax reading my book and swimming.  This is the life!

Even though I've had time off, I haven't been doing much scrapping.  Not sure why, maybe its my now pristine clean scrapping room  and I don't want to mess it up!  My mojo has not been around much and to be honest I haven't missed it either.

But here is one I have finally completed for a Sassy L'il Sketches Challenge.  I managed to change it into a double and kept it quite simple.
