I'm back....

It would be great to be able to say that my hiatus from scrapping was due to an awesome holiday in some exotic, remote destination.... but that is sooooo not the case :)
Thankfully, the school holidays commence next week, so I have a little reprieve from the hustle and bustle of life and some well earned minutes to myself.  Today I thought I'd finish this layout that has sat on my desk for it is...

I loved these LYB- Twig paper...perfect match for this photo of Noah.  It was taken in my parents' garden when he was 2.  It's hard to remember him being so little, but he still loves climbing those wagon wheels and the tree, so I guess not much has changed in that regard.  These colours were inspired by the inspiration challenge we chose for  Get Picky .
This month we have chosen the 'Sex and the City 2' movie poster to inspire everyone.
We are also offering a special prize to Everyone who participates in this challenge.  We will randomly draw someone to win TWO Sassafras Lass Collection Kit packs, plus extra Foldies and Banner Stickers!!  All you have to do to be in the running to win is enter our challenge - it's that simple!  Here is a photo of this awesome prize...
Included is:
  • Sassafras Paper Crush Collection Kit (12 double sided papers, 1 sheet of glitter alpha stickers, 1 sheet of die cut journalling tag stickers, 1 sheet of cardstock "Sweet Treat" stickers)
  • Sassafras Ellie's Tale Collection Kit (12 double sided papers, 1 sheet of mini alpha stickers, 1 sheet of die cut journalling tag stickers, 1 sheet of cardstock "Sweet Treat" stickers)

  • Sassafras Ellie's Tale Flag Banner Sticker Sheet

So if you're looking for something to do this weekend...look no further.  Be sure to stop by our blog and check out the stunning dt creations and of course our two new designers...Camilla and Piradee :)
I'm off to do a catch up will all of my blogging's been WAY too long!
