Brads and Gems

Ahh Brads, how we love and admire them...

Well Ok maybe I am thinking of

But no, At Southern Girls we are thinking brads, Gems and jewels from your stash. Alas I have neither of the above Brads in my stash so have to resort to good old fashioned metal brads. And I have looked to my very cute youngest niece for inspiration.

So Go check out the other girls creations here and then throw some brads and gems at a page and join in the fun! We are also having a mini DT call out - Lovely Carol is leaving us (sigh, I love her work) and we need someone to take her place. So enter the challenge and put (DT) in our mr linky spot, I would love another scrapbooker to join the gang - we have a very friendly group and some very active chat sessions.

And as Geoff is at work today, I manged to get a bit of scrapping done. Henry and his school was involved in The Stromlo running festival after school last friday. the point was to get as many people as you could running or walking for your school and then tally up how many laps they can do in 20 minutes. Our school managed around about 400ks and came in third. It was very hot so 20mins was about long enough. I walked and took my camera along - more photos here for locals who are interested.

Over at Mission to Create, the latest challenge seemed ideal for the Lo I had in mind. The criteria were, use transport, distress your photo (ok I only sanded the edge of the main photo a little), add clouds and a ticket and use this sketch

and I came up with this - mostly from the last Cocoa Daisy kit. The brown background paper is from Nikki Sivils that the very generous Julie sent me (more of that on Monday..) Love that girl xxx

It appears that Matt has job, part time in a take away/restaurant sort of place.He seems to think it will be fun so I will let him have his delusions for a while...

Have a great day xx
