I'M BACK!!! feel sooooo good to be connected to the world again!!! It was nearly 2 weeks without Internet due to our move and in some ways it was frustrating and in other ways it was a nice little holiday away from the www!  But I have soooo much to catch up so beware...lots of posts coming up!! Just sayin'..... :))

First of all I want to say a big hello to all my new followers...its so great to have you here...I will be popping around to your blogs soon too and a BIG THANK YOU for all of those who participated in the Stuck Sketches?! and Purple Pumpkin Blog Hops....hope you enjoyed it!

WINNER OF THE PURPLE PUMPKIN BLOG HOP for visiting my blog and also visiting the PP blog is:

CONGRATULATIONS!!!  Please contact Sam at Purple Pumpkin to arrange your prize.

I will leave you with the last 2 Colour Combos Galore layouts I did.

The 1st one was for 2 weeks ago (so its finished now).... The designer challenge was to use mesh or other woven material.  I opted for to use this 12 x 12 burlap piece that I have had sitting in my stash for a while.  Something different??!!! Its growing on me a differently one of those layouts that looks better IRL!

A little pink and red Purple Pumpkin button...


This layout is for Colour Combos #206. (current challenge)

Such an interesting colour challenge....never really done a monochromatic colour layout before! Always good to step out of our comfort zone hey!

I love these photos of Riley...he is such a hoot sometimes....he went thru a stage where he just refused to smile!! This was one of those moments!! :)))

A Manorhouse Creations flower....they are just simply STUNNING!!!

Well best go and get a few things done....
The move went well, I have most things unpacked but still finding my feet and still have a pile of boxes in the garage to unpack will happen...I just do a bit each day and have decided to tackle one room at a time...seems to be helping that overwhelming sensation that I was having last week!!! sigh...

Thanks for taking the time to visit...I will be around to visit you all soon :))
