Firstly I'm a bit excited because I won 'Scrapping Across The Universe' with my Easter tradition LO . That just made my morning when I turned on my computer! 'Let's Get Shabby' has a little reminder post up about Challenge#1 coming to a close so you might want to check that out. Boy are there some exciting things coming up!!! I've been scrapping away, some of my much loved blog challenge LO's and some dt stuff that cant be revealed yet, but I've made a bit of a concerted effort to scrap me a bit more. I never feel comfortable with it. Its not about what or what not to put on the blog re privacy etc, I just avoid it full stop! Soooooo as uncomfortable as it are two LO's......ugh I dunno....why do I feel sooooooo silly???
This is the lastest challenge just uploaded.
Here are the questions that form that challenge.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
What do you do now?
What defines you?
Who are you?
Charmane Koch has been jacked. You can check it out here
And here is my interpretation of her LO.
It certainly ended up quite differently
to how I started out!!
14TH JULY PHOTO Look at this creature on my kitchen floor! It was lucky not to get trodden on! I put down a leaf so I could carry it outside! 15TH JULY PHOTO
Painting, painting, still in Paige's room. Tedious bits to do now! 16TH JULY PHOTO
Ooooh finally a shot with Blacky looking at the camera! The light was just right too!
