My last post for the year.

So who is ready for a New Year to begin.  I know I am - its gone quickly but one I'd rather see the back of and start afresh.  I have thoroughly enjoyed a mini break - 2 x 4 day weekends in a row. Its not much but I've enjoyed every minute so far.  And my mojo is back which is delightful.  Here's what I've been creating:

First up is the December Sketch Challenge over at Anna's Craft Cupboard.  Last month I won this and was very spoilt with a $40 voucher which I loved spending:

Next up is the layout inspired by Handmade by Suzanne December Sketch:

Challenge Heaven December Sketch had me creating this one:

Not sure I have ever done a Scraplounge Sketch before, I usually have good intentions but never end up completing anything.  Well this month I did:

Unfortunately I don't have any A2Z scraplets left in my stash that I could use on this page, but their sketch was too nice not to do:

And lastly a double, the  Stuck 1st December sketch inspired the RH side of this one.

Sorry for such a long post, hope you come back and visit again soon.

Cheers (and double cheers for tonight - Happy New Year!)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all.  This is a fairly festive post as this week I've managed to create not one but 4 layouts - all with a Christmas theme.  I was on a roll scrapping last years photos, don't know what got into me. Is it because I know I won't want to scrap them once I've got this years photos to do, or is it because my Christmas stash is limited and I only had a 'few' products to work with so I wasn't fussing over the layouts forever.  Whatever it is - I'm really happy with the outcome.  Last Years photos are now in memory albums and I'm ready to take a whole lot more this Sunday!!

Here is a little snippit of the fun I had last saturday with my littlest nephew.  Do you think he would sit still for a Xmas photo shoot - no way!!!  But I had a blast, he is just the cutest and so cheeky at 18 months

Best wishes to you all......and I hope you have a safe and happy Christmas
