1 and Only Post for May

Well who has been completely slack this month then.... hhmm? Yes I know, appologies. Been a bit crazy for me with home, work, and of course being unwell to top it all off.... who ever said that being pregnant was supposed to be a good time in your life... All I feel at the moment is crap, I guess it HAS to get better cause it sure couldnt get any worse. BUT, in saying that I am so grateful for the opportunity to bring another little cherub into the world. With my long medical history, Doctors couldnt predict if this would ever happen... especially not twice. So I am happy about it, dont get me wrong, its just hard trying to carry on while feeling so unbelievably crap...

Well enough of my whinging. Its time to show that I have actually been doing some scrapping this month, even though I havent posted them. Thought since its the last day, its high tide I did... so here goes.

National Scrapbooking Day was held at Scrapbook Savvy and a great day was held by all. My DH didnt believe me that there was such a thing.... He just laughed when I told him, before heading off for his motorbike riding weekend LOL. This is what I managed with the help of sketches and scraplifting....

These first 2 are the 7th (#19) and 8th (#20) Inspired Blueprints sketches for the month of April. Unfortunately they werent posted early enough for me to have them finished in time, but I loved them anyway and had a good time completing them.



Now for these ones....

This was a Scrap Therapy Blind Scrap which I didnt get to do. I just printed off the instructions and away I went.... Quite a simple LO, but I like it all the same....



This is a just because. I just had to have the corner flower from Scrapware. I had been eyeying it off for ages at http://www.scrapbooksavvy.com.au/store/index.php, and it fit beautifully on this page. I also used my new Glimmer Mist which I am sssoooo in love with....


This is a scraplift from one of Sar's many albums. Its very cute I think.


These were done at crop night Scrapbooking Delights.... havent been able to make it lately, so it was great to get along and catch up with the girls. Started out rather slow, but managed 3 LO's before heading home so not a bad effort....





Crop night at Savvy wasnt as productive as I stupidly forgot to take my photos with me... Why would you need photos LOL. I had spent ages sorting them out into date order, and put them in the folder ready to go.... and with the comotion of the seriously heavy down pour of rain and running to the car without getting the papers wet, I walked out without my album..... I had this photo floating in my stuff which was OK, and then I scabbed a photo off Sar. I wont do that again will I (forget my pics I mean). So this is what I managed....

Sketch from Pagemaps April 2009



Scraplift from Tiff... Thanks Tiff....


I did another one, but without a photo and havent got it printed yet... stay tuned...

Now the rest of these I have managed to get done on my own at home. I figureed I only have about 6 months to catch up on Charlotte's scrap pages before the new addition arrives and then I am going to want to scrap he/she so every opportunity I will be scrapping. I think I am doing OK, and thanks to Kindra... she made me get some more recent pics done and I think it is helping with my mojo. I will keep going back to the older ones and get a mix done. I know I will get there eventually!!! So here goes.

This is IB Sketch # 21. I have used Glimmer Mist on this one too... Just love it... Charlotte's first haircut (at the age of 2 LOL)



Savvy May 09 Add Challenge. I used it as more of a sketch than the concept of the white space. But I think its just what you get from it so its good...


This was a very quick, just because... but too cute dont you think.


This is a double from Pagemaps. My Lil sis's Year 12 formal....Dont you just love the thickers. New purchase with my birthday voucher from Savvy... very spoilt girl I am!!


This one is the IB DT call. I like the sketch so did it, but dont think I will submit it. There are far more talented scrappers out there... will see.


This one is IB sketch # 22. can you tell I like the IB sketches.. I think I have only missed a couple since they started. They are just so versatile


and the last one is one I do really like. I guess it might have something to do with the starting point. It is the May scraplift for Savvy, and Hayley was the starting point. She does some fabulous work.


Anyway, I will leave you with that. I am going to head over to Sar's later, but dont think there will be much scrapping happening. Its really wet here and its hard for me to get everything in the car while keeping it dry as I dont have internal access from the house to the garage. Anyway, will pop over for a visit, the kids can have a play and see how we go.

Til next time (hopefully sooner than this time), keep scrapping as I will need more inspiration in the coming months LOL
