Ok so I'm the slackest Blogger in the World!

I have no idea if anyone even looks here anymore. I know I am the slackest blogger around. My husband has been hounding me to update for ages - I told him he could do it but he declined. I never seem to have any time to do the things I would like anymore. The Shop really has taken over my life, lol.

I found these images that I had loaded into a post but never actually got around to finishing - they are from Easter!!!!! Oh dear, that proves it doesn't it, lol.

I am hoping that I can be a much better blogger and update a lot more regularly. I have to run now but I promise I will be back with photos from the Ella & Huddy's Birthdays they have recently had :)

Latest 123 Challenge

It seems the only Scrapbooking I do at the moment is one layout a month for the 123 Challenge, *sigh*. I really wish I had the time, energy and motivation to do a lot more but the shop seems to take everything at the moment. I know it won't be like that forever (well I hope it won't, lol).

The shop has been going really well so far, we have new people popping in everyday and the 2 Crop nights we've had have been really successful. I can't believe it's been 7 weeks already!!! Unbelievable. This year is going to be over before I know it.

Anyway here is my layout for the challenge, I love this photo taken by the ultra talented Rachel Richter. You've still got a little time to enter. it closes on the 31st March and there are some fab prizes, so have a go!!

Calling all scrappers!

I saw this on Sarah Gladmans blog last night and thought it was a fabulous and tangible way that we could help out besides donating money which I'm sure we've all done. So I am now urging all scrapbookers out there to try and do at least one or two layouts to help the people of Victoria try and rebulid there lives and memories. For all Brisbane scrappers who would like to do layouts we are more than happy for you to drop your layouts into Flourish - 3/12 Kenrose St, Carina and we will post them all together. If you can complete and drop them off by the 15th March, that will give us a few days to get them posted to Sarah.

So start scrapping, it's such a small thing to be able to do for people who have lost everything and pass the word onto all those scrappers you know!!!

the devastation in Victoria

I can't begin to understand how the people affected by the total devastation of the fires in Victoria are feeling but my heart certainly goes out to them and their families.

I hope they find some way to rebuild there lives and carry on.

I have been watching the news with tears in my eyes and a very heavy heart and to think that someone would purposefully do this is insane.

my thoughts and prayers to you all

February 123 Challenge is:

use a shaped base to your Layout - not square or round....try cutting it yourself!

No use of hearts on the layout

I think nature would be a good theme with a shaped background and no hearts.

email your entries to:
please name your layout image with YOUR NAME to make it easier for us {PLEASE!}
Entries due: February 28th Midnight!
So there you have it!! Happy Scrapping everyone ;0)
