I've been wanting to share this layout for what seems like ages....and finally I can.
This layout and card were done as part of the Amy Butler Sketch Challenge done for Scrapbook Memories Vol 10 No 6, which by the way is out now. I've never done a sketch challenge before and i found this very hard at first, but once i got into it, I really enjoyed it and was happy with the end results.

I hope you all have a fun and creative week.

Will chat again soon.

You know your life is getting way from you when *1- you celebrate your 17th wedding anniversary *2 - your eldest daughter has been doing the practice test for her learners permit & *3 she only has 10wks of school left before she leaves to study to be a beautician, oh and i forgot one *4 you notice that your not as fit as your used to and you notice a few more wrinkles than you had the last time you looked...
Don't get me wrong, I still think Glenn is the yummiest and most sexiest man on the planet and i am so lucky to have spent the past 17yrs with him and look forward to the next 17, but it also tells me that I'm getting older. I don't normally think about all this stuff but so much is happening this year. We have Glenn's 40th in a few weeks, then Teish is 16 in yeh about 10-11wks and our baby girl was 13 this year. Teish cant wait to leave school and do Beauty and has her next 2yrs all planned out. She is already talking about leaving home when she finished her course.....What ever happened to staying home until you got married........And to top it that the girls are getting older they don't need me as much......or that's what it feels like....but in saying that, i have had more time to scrapbook or should i say ...make is one i whipped up the other week...we did this in class this week and it was good to see everybody interpretation of it......and as usual the photo does not do it justice.

As you all know, i am a huge Scrapbook fan but when it comes to card making, its not my strongest point, so here is one of my first attempts at stamping. I personally think it's cute and to be honest i look forward to expanding my knowledge in this is so much fun ....and addictive.......

I'm off for now but I hope you all have a great week-end.
