Here is my take on the first "overlooked" challenge, i am a coffee addict lol, drink it non stop so
had fun doing this layout, although my journaling could have been better. I really love the colours in these papers.

Summer Days

I just love these papers from Fancy Pants, they are great for guy pages. I find most of the papers
look to girly with flowers or butterfly's and the others are really for very young boys.

SB sketch challange

This is my interpretation of Julia's sketch, the journaling reads .."Walk saftely through the maze of life, and remember obstacles can be over come" .
I had fun with this layout.

making patterned paper

This was my attempt at SBBD`s challenge "do a layout by making your own patterned papers,
I used black and cream card, the cream i used bubble painted wrap and stamps, the second piece
i colored with green chalk ink and stamped, used a black pen to do the edges.

cooling off

The last couple of nights we have gone down to the beach and paddled in the sea to cool off, Its
been imposable to get a decent sleep and even a cold shower only helps for a short time. I snapped hubby as he waited for me,if we had a high deck i swear i would pull my bed out there to sleep.
Lucky for me we haven't been to busy at work, as by 2ock im worn out and ready for my nana nap lol.

6 x 12

I like this one much better than the others, i think i was keeping them a little to plain so have
started to add a little more colour. Its like taking a walk down memory lane scraping these photos, D is 21 now and defiantly doesn't give his mum those yummy big hugs around your neck any more (sniff sniff) makes me a little sad.

I also spent a few hours at the studio today and managed to do a few more of my 6 x 12 pages,
then it was back home to do some more cleaning !!!! does it EVER end lol
