Christmas in July

was the theme of this months Crop 4 a Cause with a yummy roast turkey for dinner.

I had a great day and sat with a gorgeous group of ladies. The company is always so lovely on these days. Everyone is so friendly and talented. It's nice to walk around and see the beautiful work that's being done. What should have been a 20 minute drive turned into over an hour because I got lost. Again!!!. Next time I will take the Melways or my husbands GPS.

I managed to get 2 pages done. Yahoo. I think the last one I only got one and a half done. So 2 pages isn't too bad, I was only there for 9 hours!

I so love these papers and I'm kicking myself that I only bought 1 sheet of each.

I've also got a card to show. This is this fortnights entry for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge Blog. It's a sketch this time and I used one of my new Tildas. I joined the Magnolia Stamp Club last month and each quarter you get a collection of stamps before they are released and it's an amazing saving of dollars too.

This is what zapped my mojo!!

These are the pages I was asked to do for Scrapbook Creations. Loved that I was asked. Loved the opportunity. Hated the topic!! It was sport. My son is far from a sporty person and I really struggled with the topic. It also had to have some journaling on it, another thing I wouldn't usually do.

This first page is Emma. My step father coaches Emmas soccer team and because I don't know her I just did my journaling on facts about girls in soccer. I'm really happy how this page turned out. I did ruin about 8 sheets of patterned paper on this one though, trying to get it right.

This next one is Jord and Gary practicing karate. I don't mind this page. I used colours that I wouldn't normally put together.

This last page is when Geelong won the footy finals.

I think I struggled so much with them because the topic just isn't me.

Anways they are all in this months mag. Jords pretty happy to see himself there.

An old friend called Mojo

visited me today. Yay!! Finally!

I bought this Bella Sarah Jane paper a couple of weeks ago with the intention of using it for cards. It seems to be the only thing I can put together lately.
I had one wish today...scrap, something that I haven't been able to do for what seems like forever. I'ts been 2 months since I did a layout and that was at the last Crop for a Cause day.
I put this page together before I even picked out a photo and everything just seemed to look exactly how I wanted it and it came together really quick.
Welcome back old friend :)
