dear me...where did the time go

I know I know, this 365 day thing is supposed to be daily, but with a busy retreat packing and unpacking time up time down, thats a total of 2 weeks i have been here goes the catch up....lets see if i can do it, and weather i kept at the photo thing, i did try....
I will start at the current one and work my way back, so its like it should be posted.....
Day 35 - Sunday - scrapping and movies with snuggles.....ahhh BLISS

Layouts completed for the Cybercrop - challenge #3 to complete the sketch inspired by Louise Nelson and to include 5 buttons 4 chipboard 3 brads 2 rubons 1 flower.....easy this one, it's colours where influenced by the next layout which was for the 123 Challenge for the Month of March...and that was to include Colour theme Orange, black and White, ribbons and one word title....again must have been in the zone...loved creating it.
then i fitted in a quick card whilst the supplies were out.
Day 34 - Saturday - photo shoots and family day out in the city....awesome day, here is one i snapped of dylan....unawares.

Day 33 - Friday No pics - just layouts.Cybercrop in the Forum, so only have layouts to share.
I finished of the SHE RETREAT LO - this was part of my Randome Challenge to use 10 buttons, 8 flowers, 6 chipboard embellies, 4 bling embellies and 2 staples.....loved how it turned out....and then i even squeezed in the word RETREAT from the WORD challenge.
Amies theme - scrapjacking......had fun and worked with such inspiration...Thanks to Amie for this first one.....loved her white with one that she did on Retreat, but added my signature Kraft, Red and Black....and i think i even worked in her time span...thanks Amie.Next up was challenge #1 to scraplift a layout of Deirdre inspiration here too....and again did my signature colours.
Day 32 - Thursday - more computer work, takes too long to catch up

Day 31 - Wednesday - day of rest..and work....yep had to catch up on the computer, but needed snacks and fizzy drink to keep the energy levels up.

Day 30 - Tuesday Louise heads and lunch ....lots of sleep when i got home then painting nails
Day 29 - Monday AFTER new kid at school meltdown from bianca last night, i was up early to say goodbye, due to a kitten (Bella) who got stuck between the floor and the ceiling - she is no sleepin, Louise got up early was funny to see her running out chasing the truck to catch up and say goodbye to the troops as the left for school. After deciding a nice lunch out was in order....we headed off...scumbag time...yep council cleanup and louise was in her here is my favourite treasure, before afternoon naps and cooking dinner.

Day 28 - Sunday no picture (didn't think to get one of me washing out the toilets which would have to be the memorable part of the day)....oh and my 5 mins of stardom being yelled at, at the airport by a total stranger (yes Karlene) that's how it felt.

Day 27 - Saturday - loads of laughter with Amie....

Scrapping - managed to achieve the CJ completion, I lost count of the times i put it together and took it apart.... This is for the CJ in the Forum, had fun with the softer shades of blue/green not my normal safe zone, but they are peaceful - and it is about peaceful places. I was totally inspired by Ange's love CJ (thanks Ange) and then sitting by Amie, we tossed ideas at each other, and well my discs for sign-in are apart of that!!!(thanks Amie)

Day 26 - second official day of retreat, and i was last to bed.....last night or this morning here is the proof....2.55am and the place looks empty, except for all that mess on the tables.

Scrapping - well started work on my CJ entries....seems all i did was cut and stuff things up......sad but true.....oh and i wasn't the last to bed this night either.

Day 25 - first day of retreat, totally chilled and with almost all the DT here we got into scrapping early. -

More layouts to share....

I tried to work on the RAK & New Challenge - which was only 2 colours ,3 or more photos & fabric......just couldn't stick with the 2 colours on this one, as the fabric had to be was what i had with me.

Next, up i did manage the RAK and NEW challenge....thanks Vesna for the inspiration, more grungeboard fun....this time inspired by KYE, just wiping the ink on the raised swirls....Love this stuff so versatile. Day 24 - picking up from airport Amie and Louise, then unpacking and setting up retreat, before setting up to scrap kindy glitz was the flavour of the weekend starting tonight...So now i can share these layouts.

first up - this is a just for fun layout, that i started at the last 12 hour it was first off.....simple design, got to play with the new KaiserCRAFT black and white rubons....oh so cheap and such variety....don't you love these black swirls. And my grungeboard was a huge feature all weekend as well...totally love all our different effects...this is black ink then up is my photo swap layout from the Forever Always Forum Swap thread loved this photo of Amie's daughter - and then i fell in love with Amies sparkle kindy Glitz like she had fallen in love with my Red our trading did well on the weekend. Then i got in and scrapped another just for fun, that fits into this months Colour challenge LIME, TEAL and CREAM - and i am finally falling in love with my Fancy Pants Designs Felt expensive item but i totally love the way its worked on these
