Scrapbook Memories-May

WOW my first layout in print. It seems like it took forever. I submitted this layout way back in September last year. For all of you who have been wanting to submit but are to shy to, go on just do it. I got knock back after knock back, but you just need to keep at it. I still get knock backs but maybe what i am submitting is just not what there looking for in the current issue they are working on... I see some of what i think are the most beautifull layouts at work and yet the owners tell me they got knocked back...
We all have our own style and as long as you are happy with the end result that's all that matters. Hey maybe i should start a magazine for us scrappers who get rejected all the time....hahaha.
Well this is my style. I hope you like it

I hope you all have a great week.

Take care

Hello everybody

I can't believe how fast these past few weeks have gone. I really didn't think it had been that long since my last post. Things have been really busy at work and by the time i get home and do all the family duties they girls have well and truly planted themselves at the computer table and i have to fight the girls all night for it and when i do get on all i get is "mum how long will you be".
Thank god for laptops. I'm really enjoying the teenage years........yer we have our ups and downs but in general the girls are a lot of fun at the moment and they still like to hang with us every now and then. As usual they have a better social life than we do.

I hope everybody had a great Easter. We spent time at home this year. We had planned a trip to Newcastle to see my sister and her family but somehow work had other plans. I did manage to get some me time at my table, which was great. I love it when i can put my head down and the ideas just keep on flowing. Isn't it funny that it only ever last for a short time before you get scrappers block again.

As you can see, i am still under the influence of Carol and Joanne with this layout. You just have to try 3D work. It's very addictive as are cards once you get a few under your belt.

"Happy Birthday"

This card was done using the Cricut Machine. (Wording and Flowers)

"Best Wishes"

I hope you all have a great week.
