CCG & a last minute challenge

Hi there everyone,

Such a gorgeous day here today, I actually have the windows wide open as there is a slight breeze flowing thru the house and no air-con!! I can't remember the last time I didn't have the air-con has been going 24/7 for the last couple of months!  Anyway, I have been busy doing my usual Monday jobs, Riley is at Kindy and Finlay and I have been doing some colouring in, craft and reading etc.  DH is away again this week so its just me and my boys!!

Over the weekend I managed to put this layout together for the latest colour combo at Colour Combo's Galore.  I must admit and played with this one for ages but I am happy with how it turned out.  As well as a colour challenge CCG have a designer challenge as well, which I love.  It really helps push me out of my creativity zone.  This week is create a layout with a filigree look.  You don't have to do this either.... Filigree look is  lace cardstock, intricate chipboard, border punches that sort of thing.

I happen to get my hands on some new Prima masks....oh my goodness they are simply Divine!!!! DH was a bit slack ( I shouldn't say that cause he is a very busy man) and didn't organise a chrissy pressie for I held off cause I wanted to get some new CHA stuff!!!!

You are Perfect to me....

I also got a bit creative over the weekend and have discovered a love for brown paper bags! I have had this little bag for yonks and found it again last week in my clean up and decided to use it! SUYS 1st of Feb challenge was to create a handmade heart.  I went a little different and created this! See my little handmade heart...I twisted out a red paper clip and made it look like a funky heart.  This proudly sits above where I scrap, so I can look at my boys anytime of day or night! The little beaded thing that is attached the the bag is from Purple Pumpkin.

Well back to it I guess...thanks for stopping by and for any comments left too...
Have a great day...bring on tomorrow I say...1st day of a new month means new challenges!
