My (maybe) last Southern Girls Challenge

Well, the time has come to step down from Southern Girls. It has been a bit over a year and I have loved becoming friends with all the girls on the team. The DT message board is so active, it is just a lovely team to work on.

Currently (as in right now!!) Lou is in labour with her latest addition (known to us as zippy but not being very zippy about his/her appearance...) so I may be staying on for a couple more weeks as she will be need rest rather than choosing the new DT members. I can't say I am unhappy to stay as I was feeling quite sad now the decision had been made.

Anyway onto the latest challenge - slugs, snails and puppy dog tails - all about the men in your life. I have chosen Henry when he was 4 doing his best karate poses. It's what 4yo's do best...




Come and play here, I would love to see your work.

And don't forget about Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge school days challenge, I am really looking forward to seeing these entries!

Back off to paint the second layer of a feature wall in Matt's room - very pleased with the way it looks so far, will show pictures when finished (ie after ripping up the carpet, buying a new bookcase and reassembling the furniture that I had to take apart because it was the only way to move it.. hmm could be a while). And now the other two want the same in their rooms, what have I done??

Update - Lou gave birth to a healthy baby boy - William - 7lbs 2oz - yay.
