1. The usual mad end of year rush - getting ready for Christmas, writing report cards, Connor's Christmas dos... etc etc...
2. I've had surgery on my knee recently - just and arthroscope to repair a torn cartledge, and I am no on the long, slow road to recovery. Really though, the best thing I can do for myself is lose weight and exercise, which I'll be on to right after Christmas;0)
3. I have had NO computer for six weeks - my lappy chucked a hissy fit, and I've had to get the mother board and the VGA repaired - mind you, it took 2 returns to work out what was wrong, and I still haven't got it back yet - just sneaking on to Mark's computer.....
4. We have also been away on holidays - and I didn't take any computers or anything with us - just hopped on computers in the hotel lobbies when I could grab a spare moment.
On a scrappy note, I HAVE been scrapping - just not sharing - LOL. I have made HEAPS of xmas cards, and some layouts - more to do today, too.
On the weekend, I participated in a cybercrop at Chookscraps I was introduced to this site by the lovely Shara and Ceci - and I must say, the forum is a delightful place to hang out :0)
This was the Photo I entered into the photo challenge - it was to take one of a wild animal. I just took this photo recently at Lorne in Victoria - these King Parrots just flew up and started eating crumbs on our table during a breakfast - Connor was just so delighted!!
Anyway, this was the card challenge - I am so not into cards, so I am going to enjoy doing cards for a change - really need to get my skills up in this area - LOL -
Challenge 3 was to scraplift a layout from the gallery with animals on it. I chose one of Ceci's layouts I loved the bright colours, and the way she layered the papers - I loved how this turned out, and will definately be using this design in the future:0)
Challenge 1 was to use the colours White, Black and Grey - with one other colour - I did a grungy layout - as you can see, I am STILL scrapping our snow holiday photos!! LOL!!
Got all our Great Ocean Road photos to scrap now too - guess it will keep me busy!! Haha!!
This was for Challenge 2 - We had to use Masking, One Photo, 3 Word Title, Glam/Glitter, Lace and Ink. I really loved how this turned out, too - this range is the Basic Grey Curio range, and it is devine - I actually have two more photos to scrap with this range, and I can't wait to get some time to do it!!
Well, that is about it for now - I do have some more things to share, but I haven't photographed them yet - and I would much rather do it with my computer, as then I can use Photoshop - I editted these in Paint, and I don't like the quality very much at all :0(
Cheers, and thank you for popping by - hope some of you are still coming, after such a long time between posts.........
