Merry Christmas to all.....

Christmas is hard for me. A time when I remember all the people I would be sending cards to or calling but they are no longer alive. I struggle with the day-to-day festive stuff and go through the motions for the kids but I feel such a sense of loss at this time of year..... so it's hard.

I am trying to take Ngaire's message to heart, (thanks Ngai for the constant reminders of the beauty and blessings in life!) and be more appreciative of what I have right here.

Happy Christmas to all who drop by, I hope it's a warm and loving time for you.

Busy weekend scrapping

I have been in a crap mood too much lately, hormonal stuff I think, so this weekend I planned lots of time out for my family to give them a break from me! The up-side of which is lots of scrapping time, and although I felt like each page took way too long, I am reaching the end of the weekend relatively pleased with my achievements. There are a couple of pages for the Scrap Therapy CC, the AED gallery, one for Aussie Scrapjack, and one ... justacoz. And it's still only lunchtime sunday!

another piece of 'Therapy'

another LO for the Scrappin with the Stars comp at Scrap Therapy

and a LO of mine from the latest For Keeps mag. I was pretty happy with this, it scored front page of the gallery on its own and looked great on the green background they used. It was also refreshing that the colour looked right, so many of my LOs in the other mags look washed out.

Hanging out....

for this weekend! Desperately in need of some Scrap Therapy and as luck would have it they are cyber-cropping this friday 7th Dec. (and all weekend). Some challenge hints and a photo requirement are up already, check it out here.

They are also having a 25% off sale for Xmas, good opportunity to nab a bargain.
