Workout 81 - I am So Thankful @ ScrapFIT

Hi friends. I have been awfully quiet on the blog front, but it's been with good reason. I had my sister and her sweet girls visiting for a week (we had such a lovely time together!!), and then went down the coast for Christmas. We are now back home, enjoying some relaxing time by the pool, and just enjoying the quiet time before we go back to work on Wednesday next week.

Anyway, I am back to share a layout I created for Workout #81 at ScrapFIT. I gotta say, I adore these photos of my youngest son Jamie, he really does hold my heart very firmly in his little hands!!!!

For this layout I used a gorgeous layout by Maggie Holmes as my inspiration, whenever I see her new layouts posted over at STUDIO CALICO I am inspired to scrap!!!! I used some lovely ENMARC chippies on this page.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, for those who take the time to comment, "thank-you", it means a lot to me!!!

A layout for EMARC CRAFTS!!

Hello to you lovely ladies who are visiting my blog today, I am SO glad you are here!!! Today I am going to share a layout I created with lots of lovely ENMARC CRAFTS goodies. I had loads of fun putting this layout together, the products worked so well with the photo I used, and I even stayed up until 11pm playing (which is unheard of for me, cause I am usually in bed by 9 ;)

So without further ado, here is the layout I created. I know you have seen this photo before, but I couldn't help myself, I just LOVE it!

The yummy Enmarc products I used on my page are:

~ Papers: From the Maverick Collection : Wingman & Sergeant Major
~ Frame: "Chain" De Gears
~ Alphabet Letters: Whiteboard Alphas: Blocked Type - Uppercase

The title, stars, arrow and outside border on the paper were all cut with my Silhouette Cameo.

You can find details of these products, as well as the lovely new December releases HERE, do yourself a favour and go and check it out!!!

After a hectic and rather emotional school term, it is so nice to finally be back to scrapping and a bit of creativity. Look out for some more ENMARC layouts soon!!

Hope you have a great week ahead!!!!

Sketch # 12 at SCRAP AFRICA!!

I am so sorry I am late with getting this post up, it's the last week of school, and we have had loads to do, as well as the race we took part in over the weekend!!

For those that might be interested, both boys did extremely well. Bryce ran his first 10km trail run, and was placed 4th in his age group!! Caide did his first 20km MTB race, and was placed first!!!! So proud of them both! I did my run in approximately 1:06, with Bryce beating me by about 5 minutes. It was very muddy and wet, but great fun!!

So without further ado, here is my layout for the latest great sketch up at SCRAP AFRICA!!

These photos were taken by a friend of a friend, and I absolutely LOVE the way they turned out. This is Caide and his best friend Sipho just before their GRADE 7 farewell!!

Here is the GORGEOUS sketch you get to play with for this challenge!!!

There are 2 random prizes up for grabs for this challenge!!!!
