July Monthly Challenges

Hello everyone,

How was your weekend?? Well I have survived 3 weeks without Brad...another 3 weeks to go. Hopefully this week we will hear if we have a house to go to in Emerald (fingers crossed). Once we hear about that, it will be all systems go!!!

The boys spent a lot of time on Saturday outside in the glorious sunshine while I did a little housework (sigh), washing etc and scrapping!!!

Anyway, I thought I would share a little of the scrapping I did last week. I have managed to complete all the monthly challenges at Bons, which is a bonus!

First up is the July Sketch provided by Nic Pomeroy. Extra criteria....AQUA, PRE-COVERED CHIPBOARD and a SPEECH BUBBLE. Here is the sketch.

Here is my take. Riley is just at that age where he is always full of questions....he is always asking me..."whatch ya doing mummy??" So cute!

July's ROTM (room of the month). A very gorgeous girly room isn't it! So I put on my boy goggles and loved the design of the room. I took inspiration from the spotted sheets, the folded sheet on the bed and the bookcase above the bed.

So here is my take...scrapping Mothers Day pics. I have been doing heaps of cleaning out of my scrap stuff and came across this Kaisercraft felt piece that has been around for I decided to challenge myself in using it up...not sure if I "love" it in this LO...but moving right along hey!

July's Write Now challenge provide by Skye Johnston. We had to write our journalling as a fairy tale or story!! Extra criteria was BLING, SPOTS and TORN EDGES. I had so much fun doing this one...

So if you are looking for something to do this month, head on over to Bons and have a go at these fantastic challenges.

Guess what I am playing with this week! Yep couldn't resist getting this GORGEOUS kit from Bons (which has already sold out!!!!). Its such a ME kit with super gorgeous boy papers!!!

Have a fantastic week!

Love Min xo
