What's this... 2 posts in 2 days!!!

Tongues out to those of you (ower Paul) who have moaned at me for my non blogging spell, betcha didn't expect 2 posts in as many days did ya!!!
A dear friend of mine, Jems, has set up a new sketch blog with her friend Zoe. Rough Draft looks like it's going to be a good one to kick start the mojo when it is lacking. They are looking for DT members at the moment, and all you have to do to be in with a chance is create a LO based on this fabby sketch. I had a play last night and did this LO of the Bear's freckles piccie. I rotated the sketch and only used one photo instead of two, but I have to say I am pleased with the end result.
So what are you waiting for??? Get scrapping, and email your LOs by 1st October to be in with a chance.

Still here, still scrapping... just!

Ok so I was a bit hasty in announcing that the tiredness had gone... it's back with a vengeance!!! I am feeling really well (apart from a sore throat that will not shift), but my days are a lot busier now as I have more minded children, so once the evening comes I barely function above a vegetative state. I have been doing bits of scrapping here and there, although I can't share it all with you now as I a) haven't had time to photograph it, and b) have left the camera cable at my mum's and am waiting for her to send it back... once it is in my possession I will get snapping and share some bits with you.
Looking forward to the weekend... well Sunday to be exact. It is the Warrington crop so a full day of chatting, shopping, being looked after and a little bit of scrapping thrown into the mix. At the Cheadle crop a couple of weeks ago I started a second LO, which I did finish later that evening...

I'm sorry... I promise enough of the pregnancy LOs for a while... I don't want to be all, look at me I'm having a baby (hopefully). The next LO I plan to scrap will be of two little plastic men that play a big part of our lives... intrigued??? don't be... unless you too are a star wars fanatic! Loved doing this LO, using bits and bobs of papers, and the gorgeous paper lace from sarahscards, only 2 in stock, so you better be quick if you want some... trust me, it's a must have for your stash collection! And as for thickers... I love them and Sarah has a HEOOOOGE collection, so you could fill your basket up whilst you buy the lace;)

Right off to read bed time stories, then more scrap a doodling... will be back when the camera cable is back (hopefully by the end of the week). But before I go I justwant to share this gorgeous photo of the bear... I just had to capture his ickle pickle freckles... love em!

I am very pleased to say that the debilitating tiredness I have been suffering with has finally *touch wood* gone. I feel so much better lately than what I have been, and my mojo is back... the scrapping desk is busy and there are dst backing bits everywhere, much to the annoyance of Rob. I think he quite liked the tidiness of when I was in a scrapping rut! I have been scrapping, but I have been doing stuff for Sarahscards, so I can't share whole LOs yet... but I have also started some work just for me, which once it is finished I will blog. I should also be back to blogging much more frequently as BB has finished... I cannot believe I wasted so many hours of my life watching it just for Rachel to win *rolls eyes* Not that I think there was anything wrong with her, but she was hardly entertaining during the series... Rex got my vote, even if people do see him as a bully.... maybe bullies just like bullies;)Anyway... it's only a short post to share a few sneaks, as I am going to go and play with paper and glue.
To my bestest friend ever... it was great speaking to you tonight, and I am sending BIG FAT hugs to you and yours, can't wait to see you in October xxx
