Crafty Crops Sketch Challenge



Thanks to a new FB page called Crafty Crops and to my "new" friend Suz who added me I have finally gotten back to do another scrapbooking layout at LONG LAST! The layout I created was based on their first sketch challenge. I was so impressed to see some 25 layouts already in the challenge photo album. Great work ladies. I so love seeing everyone's slightly different take on things.

Well I must get off here. I have been trying to make myself work out each and every day and now I am trying to have less computer time in the evenings so I can put myself to bed at a decent hour!

Night night, sweet dreams to you all. Thank you for stopping by my little blog.

Something Special for the TWINS.....






Afternoon Ladies

My apologies as this is a quick rushed post.... esp for you Suz!! With huge thanks to my gorgeous lil sis (aka Carolyn Zabel) for the inspiration. I am so happy to share with you all two cards I made for two very special young ladies. My dd's bestie Em and her twin sister Chelsea. They are having their birthday party today after school so I think I am safe posting the cards now. Their gorgeous Mum is on FB so I didn't want to chance them seeing them before today! I hope they will like them. I am so happy with how they turned out myself. I can't wait to make me up some more! I especially love the purple one! I do wonder why... maybe my love of purple and the pp is just so pretty too! Best be off. Hope everyone is having a great scrappy day! Thanks for stopping by. Won't be long and it will be time for another Twisted Sketches card girls so don't forget to stop by again soon.

Evening

Well I have been rushed off my feet with special cards to make this week. This one perhaps the most special. Firstly my dd came home with an invite to her friends pool party on Tuesday afternoon. The girls are identical twins! They love crafting so I knew I had to do something special! Then my middle ds had a call inviting him to a friends pool party this afternoon. Another male card needed this time with some flair! Then lastly my DH rang up our Nan & Pop to schedule an appointment. They are always so busy it is best not to just drop around as they probably won't be home lols. Well lucky my DH did as I hadn't check my birthday book for February yet and had totally forgotten it was Pop's 70TH on Monday! There is a small family get together happening during the day. So I have managed to make 4 or 5 cards in the past three days.

The one featured above is for Pop (surprise, surprise!!) Nan is a very talented card maker as well so I had to come up with something extra special! Thanks to my gorgeous lil sis Caz for this idea and the instructions too. You're da bomb sis!

Hope it inspires you all to create something extra special for a loved one. In the meantime I am off to bed for some well earned rest!

Sweet dreams or have a great day to those of you on the opposite side of this glorious world we live in!

Til next time.....
