Here's another ATC collection to share. These one's are from the August swap for SBO. The theme was vintage and the results were just fantastic!
And yet another ATC swap. This one was from the August swap for Scrapbook Essentials. The theme this time was animals and we all had very different takes on the same theme... check out the results:
I've also been working on a really special album using the Basic Grey Periphery papers. They're so gorgeous and I promise to share the finished album as soon as it's done. I'm off to get some more scrapping done :)

Earlier this week Hannah tagged me. Here's how it works:
1. Players must list one fact, word, or tidbit that is somehow relevant to their life for each letter of their first or middle name.
2. When you are tagged you need to write your own post containing your first or middle name game facts, word, or tidbit.
3. At the end of your post choose one person for each letter of your name to tag.
4. Don’t forget to leave a comment telling them that they have been tagged, and to read your blog.
5. If I’ve tagged YOU (see below), please join in on the fun!
Ok here's mine:
S - scrapbooking
I love scrapbooking I usually scrap every day... either actually making a LO or project, designing something new or checking out ideas in blogs and magazines.
H - home
My home is definitely my space where I can just be me. I love being at home and having my things around me. There is definitely no place like it!
E - education
I've spent the last 10 years of my life either studying or teaching. Sometimes I can't believe that the last decade has gone so quickly!
L - laughter
Laughter really is the best medicine! (chocolate isn't bad either LOL) Sometimes it's the small things that make me laugh and sometimes it's insane little moments... like last week when Miss 15 came home and told me she'd had the best day at school... when I asked her why she told me - through the giggles - that in health they had made a giant 3D vagina and she was an ovary! Have to admit that I just couldn't stop laughing over that one and I even made her ring her Auntie to tell her... Trac was laughing hard out on the other end of the phone!
L - life
Life is wonderful! I'm so grateful for the life I have! Everyday I think of at least 3 things to be grateful for and even on the worst days in the world 3 things isn't that hard to do!
So now it's my turn to tag other bloggers... it's actually quite a lot of fun!
Here's my list:
All of the projects I've been working on this week are in various stages of completion... but I have updated my Deck of Me blog... really loving doing these cards so would love to hear what you think of them!
Neen's got her next challenge up on her Music in Me blog too. This weeks song is Gwen Stefani's The Real Thing!
Have a fantastic week :)

I did manage to get some scrapping done in amongst everything else and I've done the first challenge for Neen's The Music in Me blog. She chose the song 'Ice Ice Baby' by Vanilla Ice and I was completely stumped until I remembered about these gorgeous photos of my little niece having her first taste of ice cream. She was barely 4 months old and her Dad gave her a little taste of his ice cream... but a little taste turned into his whole ice cream! Here's my LO:Following on from making girls birthday cards I decided to make a birthday card for one of my grandmothers... she's totally into cats and bright colours so hopefully she'll like this one! Even if she doesn't I KNOW she'll keep it because this woman throws NOTHING away! She's got rubber bands by the truckload... a container of those plastic bread ties... stamps from everything... she even keeps serviettes from McD's!
I've been working on the Deck of Me challenge too! I've decided to keep them all together on a seperate blog so click here to take a look at my little creations!
