Its Friday....!!

Hello to you all :))

WOW hasn't the year flown, can't believe we are into November already and it won't be long and the big jolly man in red will be here!! I have been super busy on the home front so apologies for neglecting my blog recently. Finlay, my youngest, starts Kindy next year, so things to organise already for that time, lots of end of year stuff happening with Riley at Prep as well as everything else.

Anyway, I wanted to share with you all today a layout I created last month for Manor House Creations.  Its a step x step tutorial on how I created the background.  If you want to take a peak, you can find all about it HERE.

Love this photo of my boys with our gorgeous dog,  She really does deserve to wear that crown.  She is not a dog that barks for no reason, she doesn't bark when she hears other dogs bark but she will if she hears or sees something out of the normal.  And last night proved what a great protector she is.  We had a snake visit us and my husband went out to see what all the barking was about to discover this slithery visitor.  Thank you Mimi for warning us they are around!!!!

"Mimi Girl" (as she is affectionately called)

Papers are from the My Minds Eye "The Sweetest Thing"- Bluebell range...

Couldn't help but do some fussy cutting around the flowers and the chevron patterns in the papers.

Aren't the flowers from Manor House just gorgeous!

And speaking of Manor House..... MH are running a competition this month.


So if you love making cards and have some MH flowers in your stash, why not give this competition a go...the prize is so worth while.

Card-making flowers, of course! 6 packs each for 2 very creative card-makers.

The competition closes at midnight on Friday November 30th, 2012. Send your entries along to and we will showcase them here on our blog.
Okay I better be off here, its soon school pick up time again! Where does these days go.  I thought when Riley went to school I would have more time but I am not finding that this is the case! 
Have a lovely weekend, whatever you are doing....hubby is working right through so I am hoping to be creative!! YAY!
Thanks for checking in and leaving me the most wonderful comments, they are always welcome. 
And don't forget to check back here next week as I am having a massive blog candy GIVEAWAY!!! It could be yours, just in time for Christmas!!! :))))
