Challenge #196 Thankful - Use Your Stuff

Morning All

Looks like someone forgot to set her latest challenge up on auto post!  So without further adieu here is my layout for the lovely Tammy's challenge over at Use Your Stuff.  As UYS is based overseas I assumed being "thankful" was to have something to do with the upcoming Thanksgiving.  So I decided to think about what I am thankful about at this time of year.  I often sit in my craft room and gaze out the window at my pretty flower beds and blooms.  So I decided to go with a theme of flowers/butterflies.  This is my card :


 Bright happy flowers and a cute little butterfly.  And the sentiment says it all "Oh Happy Day!"

Have a great day and happy crafting!

Layout A Day

Morning Everyone

I have been trying to slowly catch up on some of the many photos I want to scrapbook "one day".  So I thought I would share a few of my recent ones.

First this is a photo from back in November 2014 (I think).  The Color Me Rad 5klm.  It was so much fun! If you haven't done one of the colour runs then you have to...


Next is a photo from May 2014 when we all did the Mother Day Classic and had lots of fun rocking "pretty in pink"!  Ken, Nic & I walked the 5 klms course but Jordan and a couple of his mates ran the 8 or 10 klms (already forgetting) but I do remember he came second in his age group! Go Jordie :)


Then we have a photo of the four of us attending a friends wedding in March last year.  This was taken in our front yard as we left by my eldest Doug who didn't attend.  Gosh my kids are gorgeous - feeling blessed.


And last but not least for today a more recent photo.  This one was taken only a few weeks ago when Ken, Reneena, Kelly & I did the Color Me Rad 5klm  in Brisbane!



Thanks for stopping in - happy crafting

UYS Challenge #194 - Sketch

Good Morning Everyone

I am back this time with my latest creation for Use Your Stuff.  For this weeks challenge I sent a relatively simple task... create a card or layout (or whatever else you like really) using the sketch below.  I stumbled across it on the net and loved the simplicity of it's design.



Originally I had every intention of creating a card for my example but this photo and papers jumped out at me and before I knew it I was creating a layout instead.   This is my hubby and one of my closest friends when they came to visit us back in 2013.  I love the silliness of the photo almost as much as I love the two people in it!



Thanks for stopping by and be sure to hop on over to the UYS Blog and join in the fun.  Don't forget to link in your creation at the bottom of my post!

Have fun & Happy Crafting.

Hugs
