It's been awhile

I've been a little slack of late, popping in here, so a quick catch up, yard has been cleaned up, 10 truck loads of trees and bits to the dump, bobcat was brought in to dig holes for new fence, fence post now in, new front paths box, and ready for concrete, road base down in back yard ready for quick kerb people, so thing are coming along on the house front.

Scrapbooking, well haven't done much of late, going to a scrappy weekend away this weekend, so hope to get a few LO's done, need to get my pics sorted for that, or even get out and take a few.

Africa, Egypt trip almost finish just need to get visa's and needles, and pay the last bit of kenya leg, then save up for spending.

January Inspiration

January's Birth Flower is the Carnation.  Carnations have been cultivated for the last 2,000 years. Originally from the East, these hardy and fragrant flowers have the flower meaning of pride, beauty, fascination, love and distinction.

Use this picture to inspire you and tell us when uploading your lo what the inspiration was.

And here's my example...  It's a celebration ( from the table setting ), and predominately red and white like the picture


January - Ready Steady Scrap

We took inspiration from a sketch site The Colour Room and selected this beautiful palette.  So this months Recipe is to complete this challenge using these colours with this sketch!  Have fun and it is up to your interpretation!

And here's my example!

Happy Scrapping!
