Paper scrapping again....


Ok, finally gotten back to glue and paper, I did go a bit overboard I'll admit but it was fun!! how could I resist the latest sketch from Scrap Friends. My friend Lizzy is on the DT over there and I knew as soon as I saw the sketch, it was something I had to do...





isn't it wonderful?? Esp combined with the latest challenge at Scrapfit, requiring a long title.

and here's my much awaited (am I overselling it??) return to paper scrapping, pretty messy -



 

 This was a quote form Henry to Matt  after some very mild, if persistent, taunting  on his behalf towards his beloved big brother...

Short post today, first day of the hols and I am coming down with something, very cold and headachy. Geoff has taken Henry and Meaghan bowling, lots of fun but I'm happy to curl up under a rug for a while.
have a great day, I have some happy news for later in the week, hopefully more scrapping to come.

PS -Happy Birthday to my newest bestie, Mia, go check out her new blog -Trophy Wife, not scrapping but I think it will appeal to one or two of you with slightly tilted looks at the world - we''ll do movies soon. xx

Will return your 50 SHADES series. Totally enjoyed campy confrontation scene at the end of second book. Third book a bit hard going (ie repetitive..)
Laters, baby.
