Howdy ...

Wassup??? All I can tell you is that it's HOT here. The other week we were pulling jumpers out on a few chilly mornings and suddenly the heat has arrived with a vengance and slapped us in the face. We've been sweltering ...

Thankfully it's cooled off a little this afternoon with a few storms hanging around although we haven't got anything at our place (yet?).

Harvest is underway - the boys have stripped the canola and are into the oats now plus there's all they haymaking to do. Sounds crazy - yes - but it's the nature of the job.

Now, onto scrapping ... here's my first attempt at a canvas. It was so much easier than I thought (although why I thought it would be hard I dont know LOL). If I may say so, I'm quite pleased with it. And I enjoyed it so I've got more planned. Thanks for the great class Catherine!


Speaking of new things to try, I just did 2 half maps (6"x12" pages) during the week using only scraps of c/stock and pp. I dont mind these either ...

And I've done my tags for the Divas xmas tag swap ... here they are ...

All the Scrapbook Divas and Scrapboxx recipe swap cards are done and distributed/posted.

I've started the Divas Christmas card/mail art swap ... hmmm, what else???

Here's a sneek of a very exciting series of projects starting at Scrapbook Divas shortly called "The 12 Days of Christmas". I cant wait to get stuck into the projects Diva Rachael and Diva Vicky have been preparing for us ... I've been stocking up on Christmas pp and lots of bits and pieces.

So if you're reading this blog and you're NOT a Divas member ... JOIN NOW so you dont miss out on these fabulous FREE Christmas projects. The Divas forum is a fabulous place to hang out.

Wow, Helen you have been busy! The canvas looks fab. And your 6 x 12 size LOs are wonderful too.
Hope it cools down for you soon. Take care!

Hi Helen, nice canvas and lovely LO's! I checked out the site, but I am still too chicken to join.. not to mention too disorganised : ) The 12 days projects look very enticing though...

Thankyou so much for popping by my blog and leaving a comment, that was so sweet of you.
You've got some seriously scrummy layouts on here and I love the 3rd birthday cake!
