July for July

I won a really hefty kit from Fireside Crafts for winning the 123 Challenge for June. Here’s one layout (I think I have enough product for 20 layouts!!!) using the WRMK Precious Metals pp and other bits and pieces. The WRMK Designer Eyelets are cool too!! Pauline’s third kit is ready now….really is very good value for money and some great scrappers on board too.

The quote is from Bon’s Scraps “Quote of the Month” challenge. I seem to be double-dipping a lot but it seems to be getting me through a lot of creative blocks and photos LOL!!

I’m really loving the Just for July challenge at Bon’s Scraps. I knocked off these 6×6 pages in one afternoon. Charmane has another challenge next month….might be a little more “artsy-fartsy” so can’t wait for more details.

Here are days 4 to 11 in July. I think I’ll still be updating well into September LOL!!







Have been joining some challenges at Scrap Therapy too. Might even apply for the Design Team. I know I vowed not to apply this year and concentrate on family, but I feel like I’m in a good scrap/family place now. The worst thing that could happen is they can say NO THANKS and my life continues!!

Here’s my Christmas in July layout. Had to use green and red which I really don’t like using for Christmas…but found these cool Imaginisce papers at Inkredible and thought YAY!! It’s 8×8 and part of my Book of Me.

As well as Alicia resigning from the DT at Scrapbook City, Sara has followed this week, focusing on family and her photography business.

I love that people move and change and adapt when necessary. It’s actually comforting to know that I’m not the only one!!!! I admire people who stick to something for a long time, but it’s just not me. I know I’m a different person than I was a year ago….and a different scrapper too.

Good luck to both of them. I’ll be checking their blogs more regularly now they’re gone. The rest of the DT at Scrap City are great so although they’ll be missed the talent there is awesome and inspiring too.

BE STRONG…
