This week on the scrapping front

Well I have managed to scrap again this week!!!
I have been trying to set a bit more me time aside so I can scrap or exercise.
I know the choice is very obvious, but alas I need to exercise so I can continue to eat the foods I love LOL

So this week I've managed to get two of the January sketches done for Wicked Princesses. I love how both of these have turned out:

Next is Antheas' Monthly Sketch Challenge at Savvy. There is actually two sketches this month, but I haven't finished number two yet.

And next is a DOUBLE!!!! Over at the Get Picky Challenge Blog this months sketch is a double!!! When I first started scrapping all my pages were doubles. The first page had a single large photo and the second page had three smaller photos, ALWAYS!! Don't get me wrong I love some of those layouts, but it is just funny how you change over time.......So here it is:

I'm still not sure if I am happy with the end result??? I keep looking at it and wondering if I should add something?? Not sure what, but anyway I have finally scrapped these photos which has to be a bonus because they are over 5 years old!!!!
Thanks for stopping by and thank you so much for all the comments left last post!! I was so blown away by all the nice things you all said so here's a big *mwah*

What I've been doing!!

Be prepared I have a few layouts to share!!!
I'm on holidays at the moment, just hanging around home with the kids:) So I have managed to get some scrapping done YAY!!!!!

This one is the January White with 1 Challenge. White + Royal or Navy Blue  + Banners. First time I have joined in there and I am loving my page:) I used a sketch from the Creative Scrappers (#91)

This next one is the current challenge at Show Us Your Stuff. They are a challenge site to show off your handmade goodies:) My homemade embellishes are the red flower and denim button, must say I LOVE THIS page as well!!!! Had to add the green paint coz I smeared ink on my page my mistake and had to cover it up:)

And now for my Scrap The Girls entry and Kraft It Up!!! Both sites had a summer theme this month.

Annas Craft Cupboard Monthly Sketch Challenge:

And the current DT Challenge at Wicked Princesses. This month was to use Stripes and Dots:)

OK and that might do for tonight!!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by and for leaving me some love, much appreciated xxx

My Nephew Cooper....

Takes the most gorgeous photos!!!
Well he doesn't take them, but he is in them..........
This is my January layout for the Stuck Sketches Blog.
I used up all my scraps from one of my retreat kits from Peta's and love how it's worked out.

I have been trying to use up older bits and pieces in my stash so I don't go spending anymore money, but it never lasts for long!!!
Especially since I just purchased a couple of kits from Whats Old Is New. They are having a closing down sale so I just had to buy some, didn't I???

A little project

Wow!!! It has been a while since I last blogged or scrapped for that reason, but yesterday I broke the drought!! Three pages and a photo frame. Some friends of ours had a little baby girl before Christmas and I wanted to make something special, but didn't know where to start??? So I found this frame and went from there. I do hope they like it, I know not everyone has the same tastes as me, but I am happy with how it's turned out:)
So here are a few piccies:

Thanks for looking:)
I'll be back later to share some layouts, but my computer is on the go slow, perhaps I should wait also until after this storm !!!!!!
