Lots of Piccies

Sorry to the handful of lovely folk who do read my ramblings for not having posted for some time. You know how it is ... anyway, I've been doing a bit of scrapping here and there so here's some pics.

I've been doing Diva Rach's Tuesday Challenges (4/5 completed so far) - she's been giving us a Becky Fleck sketch each week and we're doing a mini album. The LO's are only 5.5" x 5.5" and this mega talented girl also did an online class on making a faux paper bag album for the LO's. I've yet to make mine though.

I've also been doing lots of mail art for a swap on Divas. Here's my creations ...

I've received some stunning mail art in return too (sorry, no pics at the moment). It really is happy mail. I wonder what the postman has thought ...

And speaking of happy mail I got the first round of recipe cards (June) back too from the great group of girls in the recipe card swap over at Scrapboxx. They're all lovely. Have been wanting to try some of the recipes out but so far the days have slipped away from me.
Need more pics yet ... here's a LO I completed a little while ago now but haven't posted on here. I made the ribbon flowers by hand. They look pretty good if I may say so myself. The next one was for a Diva's challenge using a monochromatic colour scheme. I dont mind this LO especially considering I'd never done something like that before. Lastly, there's a LO I just did on the w/end for the Diva's latest CC. I only got 1 of the 3 challenges done unfortunately, partly because I came down with the flu on Friday (and went to bed, missing the CC start and all the chat and bingo - as DH said, I must have been crook to miss scrapping), and partly because it was Ciaran's 1st b'day so there was things to prepare for the little party at home on Sunday.

And lastly in this post, as I mentioned it was our darling baby boy's first birthday (29th July). WOW where has the last year gone. I'm sure it's flown by even quicker than with Caitlin's first year. Ciaran is such a little boy, the baby disappeared so fast with him. He is just constantly on the go and is already climbing up on chairs, jumping on the trampoline, riding a little car (pushing with his feet) and loves getting in the sandpit and having a swing with his sister. He's also very quick to spy Daddy's or Pa's ute or tractor and is always upset if they leave without him. There's no doubting he's a farm boy. Anyway, here's some happy snaps from his little party on the w/end to finish with.
