Week 10 and 11 and some pages ...

Well I'm sorry but I haven't been here for a bit - the ADSR and CT requirements have been taking up a fair whack of my time but the race (for me) is over now for another year so I am hoping to have a little more spare time for you my dear blog! Speaking of ADSR here are my last few pages ...

Challenge 9 - Create Art!

Challenge 10 - Life is our Canvas

Challenge 11 - A little birdie told me ......

Now the final challenge is being done by the lovely Deb as a roadblock and is a card and envelope - apparently there was some drama about the last challenge but we dont buy into all that rubbish so as long as we get checked off we are happy. We have had another fabulous race and all kudos to the team at NDISB for all their hard work, we cant wait until season 6!!

I had better post my P365 pages now - I am only two weeks behind and while the photos aren't anything amazing they are of my day-to-day life in all its humdrum glory lol

Now at the risk of boring you stupid (are you still awake??) here are a couple of CT pages that I have managed to squeeze in amongst all the other bits and bobs that I have been doing.

This is my page for the current PBP Template Challenge - when I saw the circles I immediately though ... beach! Luckily Carolyn Kite had just put out this adorable beach kit sooo tada!

This is a page using the goodies of a brand new designer at Pickleberrypop - Bohemian Art! So excited to have her lovely goodies to play with! This page was using her kit - Imagine

Family is LOVE

I just had to use this adorable kit by Dawn Inskip - Rainy Days and Mondays - so yummy!

It never rains, it pours!

Luckily for me I had these great pics of the girls splashing in the gutter when I saw this fun new kit of KateF's - Dibble Dabble - look at the funky fresh colours and those too cute ducks!!

ADSR Challenge 7 and 8

Its just a fly by posting this evening as I am in the middle of doing dinner but I just wanted to post these pages before I forget! I have had a busy weekend scrapping, firstly I finished my page for the April edition of the Artisan Notebook, then I finished my two ADSR pages for this week! Not a lot of housework was done sadly as I am still recovering from the darn virus I got last week. Hubby and I seemed to go back down hill yesterday but we are crawling back today. I hope I am heaps better tomorrow as I am undertaking my first ever day at Bella's High School Tuckshop! Eeek I have no idea what I am doing but the lady I spoke to today seems lovely - so fingers crossed I don't cut myself or burn myself (which is invariably what happens when i go near a kitchen!).

Anyway without further ado here are my latest ADSR pages:

Challenge 7 - My Bucket List
In this challenge we were required to list 50 things that we want to do before we kick the proverbial ummm bucket!

Challenge 8 - Someday I'm going to sit on Deb's porch
This challenge was to use the prompt "someday....." and of course it could only be about sitting on my race partner and bestest bloggy friend's front porch and having a natter and a cuppa!

Well as I said it is a fly by posting ... I will be back tomorrow or the next day with my P365 page for the week just ending! Woohoo, I will be all caught up! Oh what a feeling!

Weeks 8 and 9 and some ADSR pages

Eeek I can't believe its been two weeks since I posted last! It seems like only yesterday but man it's been pretty busy so I guess the old adage is true - time flies when you are having fun (hmmm not sure about FUN exactly!). Things have been flying along here until this week when we all ground to a halt with a yucky virus that struck down the whole family. Sore throats, headaches and fevers abound, the kids had two days off school, I had two days off work (1 for them and 1 for me) and Tony even took a day off for the kids too. But thankfully after an icky few days we seem to be emerging out the other side. Needless to say that did cramp my scrapping style but I have been going a bit over board the last couple of weeks as you will no doubt see from my post.

Since I last posted Bella's underdog netball team came up trumps when they took home the trophy and grabbed first place from the season favorites! A more exciting game I have yet to see as they were tied all the way through the game until the final quarter - when suddenly the girls got in front and stayed there! Woohoo Bella played better than I have ever seen her and Tony and I were soo proud of her!! The girls all went crazy at the end and didn't even let the other teams less than sportsman like behaviour upset them. Bella hasn't even won a Trophy before and it was a huge moment for her! Apart from Netball she has been enjoying high School still and seems to be settling into the new routine really well. She does need to get a bit more organised though but we are working on that :)

Tasha has been bugging us for a Hannah Montana guitar since her birthday but we have been trying to put her off (I mean 70 dollars for a part wood part cardboard piece of rubbish that will fall apart the minute she strums it seems crazy to me). Tony had a brilliant idea and suggested we buy her a proper guitar off ebay rather than the rubbishy one and we were so lucky to win an auction for one right here in Brisbane for only $10 more than the Hannah Montana one! its fabulous, great condition and will last Tasha for ever. Mum has bravely stepped up to the plate to offer to teach Tasha the basics so Tasha is going to have a busy year as on top of Piano lessons, tennis lessons, choir practice and Netball Nippers starting in three weeks, she is now going to learn guitar! Thank heavens I was never that busy as a child I feel pooped just thinking about it!

Well I guess I have rambled on for a while now so I had better start posting some P365 pages and ADSR pages so I can get on with the rest of my day (now that I am feeling better i had better do SOME housework lol)

Week 9

Deb and I are still going with the ADSR season 5 and are having a great time - although I admit to leaving my pages until the weekend most of the time and then tearing through a page quickly to make the deadline. I like to live on the edge rofl.

Challenge 3 - Beautiful
This was a selective colouring challenge so I wanted to use this photo of Tasha with her beautiful eyes which went perfectly with this great kit by Trish Jones - Rock the House - On the Table

Challenge 4 - ATC
This challenge was so much fun - I keep forgetting how much I enjoy doing altered art! Card number 1 and 3 are mine and Card 2 and 4 are Deb's - we had to do a combined preview for the challenge but we each had to do two cards each - too fun! Aren't Deb's awesome?

Challenge 5 - Chocolate
The name of this challenge says it all - Chocolate I love you so ...... lol

Credits here

Challenge 6 - This one is for me
To date this is my least favorite challenge EVER! But it is only because I was way out of my comfort zone with the number of elements we had to use and the number of steps that had to be completed - eek! It was a trial but this is the end result - a bit to umm fussy for my liking but it passed the judges criteria so I call it DONE. Mind you it was a pleasure working with Alexis Designs delicious goodies Cappuccino and Sweet Victorian Violette - yummy!

well I believe that I have rattled on for a while now but I think I am pretty caught up - I have lots of other scrap pages done and I will try to come back soon and post the others for your amusement. So until then - live long and prosper!
