Housework ... what housework?!!

I've been making the most of these last few weeks without routine, before I go back to work & my princess starts school.  We've been having tonnes of fun taking photos for my photo a day project ... you've got to check out ShutterCal!  It's not too late to start :).

So here's what I've been doing with my time ...

The current challenge at High Hopes is "party animal" so I made a card using "Gift Givin' Gavin" ... he look like he's off to a birthday party with his pile of presents :).


The excitement is building ... this Tuesday High Hopes are celebrating the release of their 100th challenge with a blog hop, mega prizes & guest Divas.  I've posted the link in my side bar ... just click on it to check it all out!

I've also been finding inspiration over at Challenge Masters ...

This challenge was all about altering a "container" using fabric & ribbon.


I've altered a recipe box ... the top has been covered with fabric & the rest of it is patterned paper that I've had in my stash forever.  I've also altered the dividers inside so that I can write down the details of challenges ... now I'll never be stuck for ideas again.

The Scrap that Tune challenge was to use any of the lyrics of "Fame" as your title so here's what I came up with ...


There's been lots of chatter at Scrap Therapy recently about our "word" for the new year.  I've never had a word before, but as soon as Kristy said that her's was CONNECT, I just got it!!!  Sometimes it feels like PND has stolen parts of the last two years so this word is exactly what I want out of this year ... to connect with my family & friends, my life & work, with all the everyday moments!  So here it is ... a canvas that now holds pride of place where I can see it all the time.  Thanks Kristy for inspiring me xx


So if you made it to the very end, congratulations LOL!  See what I mean about housework, what housework?!!
