I was feeling scrappy today and managed to squeeze in two more challenge LO for this month.  I This month's challenge at Kraft It Up was a sketch.

I also managed to scrap the a LO for D'Lish Scraps using the inspiration bood.  I liked the sketch, but decided to use the colours for my inspiration.

A catch up

It's been a crazy, busy few days - so thought I would quickly catch up :)
Sunday we got up early (no hangovers - woo hoo!) and headed to Cathie & Andrew's for  brunch with Kylie & Mick and their bridal party.  It was lovely to chat about the wedding.   
Sunday night Craig & I went out to dinner to catch up with our friend Matt.  It's been month's since he's visited from Canberra, so was wonderful to catch up :)
Craig is in Brisbane for 4 days doing some training this week.  Today is our 14th wedding anniversary - he had this beautiful bouquet of flowers and a balloon delivered to work  <3 p="">

Stitched cards

I am loving the Amy Tangerine stitching templates - there has been lots of stitching appearing on my recent layouts :)  I knew the feather and camera would be ;perfect for some notecards.  I stitched the blue feather and camera cards first, then decided to try an ombre effect - love how that turned out!!

Pink gerberas and some beading

Another lovely weekend :)  Saturday I was surprised with my favourite flowers "just because" :)
Dinner with my handsome hubby, mum & Mike and family friends.

Sunday mum came over and we spent the morning making beaded lanyards ready for the cuise (we both broke our last lanyards after the cruise last year).  It was beautiful weather, so we set up on the table out the back.  My beaded lanyard ended up being more like a necklace than a lanyard, so i will have to look around for some more smaller beads.

Thrfty storage

Lately I have been buying a few thrifty items to use for storage in my scrap room, but don't share pics of how I am using them :)

The stand I brought last week is the perfect size to hold my spritzer bottles and I used the sugar dispenser to hold y plain string.

I was going to use the pink bowl in the kitchen, but thought it would be cuter to store my washi tape (I quickly ran out of room on my washi tape stand that Herb made me - I have an addiction LOL) and the blue basket is a good size to hold my spare adhesives.
