Busy, busy, busy ...

That's life for everyone these days isn't it. No exception here.
I took things pretty easy after my little op the other week but suddenly life is once again full on, lots of things to do each and every day (although my list is not always "done" LOL).

So apart from the usual house work, kid wrangling and running around a mother and farmer's wife does, here's what I've been able to squeeze in creatively speaking.

Sunset photography ... I played with the various settings on my DSLR to get some beautiful shots. Still working out all the settings and numbers, too confusing for this little amateure sometimes though LOL.

I pulled out some Echo Park "Summertime" papers (there are still stocks of these in the Red Earth Scrapping shop - go to the next page for this range as well as "A Walk in the Park" which is equally gorgeous) and scrapped all the pics from Australia Day which we spent at our friends, mostly swimming, eating and drinking LOL. I did 3 pages but 1 was snapped up for publication by Scrapbooking Memories mag (happy dancing here) so here's the other 2. Aren't they so bright and happy.

This one is for our Red Earth Scrapping March sketch challenge using Stuck?! Sketches March 1st sketch plus our CT member, Linda's, extra criteria of white/black/green AND the handmade fabric spiral flower.
Pics are of my 2 with Susanne's 2 girls taken at the Orange Adventure Playground when we met up for the day in January this year.

This one is for March Scrap The Girls challenge which was to use one of the "she" quotes ... so once again using summer pics (when Susanne & I met) and the divine Echo Park papers, I came up with this.

This page is, yes, very different LOL, all distressed and a bit grungy, but it's for the March Scrap The Boys challenge - this challenge blog has just started up again - and you had to use a "moment in time" as your subject and heading.

And lastly, this one is for the March 123 Challenge challenge.

I've got a couple more projects in the pipeline ATM so when I get some pics I'll do another blog post to show you. In the mean time, thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll leave me some love :)
