New Friends LO

I made it to 4 Challenge Heaven LO's this month, so I'll be entered into the monthly prize draw! Here is my 4th LO for the month. It was created for the Theme challenge and had to be about holidays using no more than 3 patterned papers. I chose to scrap some photos of Ben taken on our 9 year anniversary holiday to Coffs Harbour, NSW. The trip was amazing and the highlight was visiting the Pet Porpoise Pool.

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun LO

Yeap, another LO! This was for the Song challenge, so had to use the title 'Girls just wanna have fun' and a patterned paper background. I'm always a bit afraid of doing pattern paper backgrounds, because I like crisp simple designs. Ended up pretty happy with the result though. Benn thinks the photos are scary. :)

I've been creating again! Mucking Around Together and By The Lemon Tree

I really have been in a bit of a depressed state recently and just haven't felt like creating anything! Luckily, this appears to be lifting now and I've whipped up two new LO's for this month's Challenge Heaven challenges. The first one is for the word challenge: it had to use the word 'together' and be on a kraft background. It's a bit of a different style to my normal work but I'm really happy with the end result.

This LO was published in Scrapbooking Memories Vol 14 No 5.

My second LO is based on the sketch challenge. Again, when I initially looked at the sketch I wasn't inspired but this idea just came to me in the shower the other day. It's a bit busier than the work I've been creating lately and I'm happy about that. It was also a good chance to use one of the family portrait photos.

Family Photo Shoot

So regular visitors to my blog may have noticed that I haven't been as creative as normal for about two months. The reason for this is that my Mum and Dad flew home from living in China at the end of April and Mum discovered she had breast cancer. It's sucked my creativity right away, I think the only ATCs I've created since then were the castles for the swap I hosted. Anyway, after having three lots of surgery Mum begins chemo treatment today. She's cut her hair short for the first time in about 25 years in preparation for it falling out and we decided to have a family photo shoot yesterday before that happens. Just thought I'd post some photos to share.
