CyberCrop @ Scrapboutique

This weekend is the May Cybercrop at Scrapboutique and our theme is Upcycling/Recycling!
The first challenges are up in the forum here and we'd love you to come along and join in, new faces are always welcome!!

My challenge for this crop is to Reduce, Recycle and Reuse to make a layout.

Reuse - something that has been used before eg. concert tickets, receipts for recent purchases, shopping bags
Reduce - your stash by using at least 4 pp and 3 different alphas
Recycle - a scrap related item eg. packaging, tissue paper or twine that scrap supplies come wrapped in, pizza boxes
 I used the ticket from our trip to Parliament House question time and the negative from some corrugated cardboard alphas as my reused and recycled items.
Hope you get a chance to join in!

Scrap the Boys May Challenge and some exciting news!

Since arriving home from our trip to Thailand I don't really feel like my feet have touched the ground! Work has been super busy, one of the busiest times of the year with assessing and reporting, and things at home have been hectic too.
I am very excited to share that I have been selected to join the design team at Scrapboutique. The community of girls at Scrapboutique is very welcoming and filled with insporational ladies. Chels stocks great essential supplies in her shop and runs the most fantastic retreats. I can't wait to get started in my new role!!
We are having a Cyber Crop in the forum this weekend so if you feel like a challenge drop in and join us, new face are always welcome!!
In all the madness of everyday life I have realised I have not posted my Scrap the Boys layout for May.
The May challenge is to scrap your boys getting dirty and to use the photo as inspiration in your layout.
Not too hard!
There is still plenty of time to join in so pop over to Scrap the Boys and have a look.
Here is my take on the challenge:

Thanks for dropping by. Hope to see you at Scrapboutique!

I've been away....

... on a short trip to Thailand and it was amazing!
Andrew and I spent 10 days in this glorious part of the world and it was magical. Warm weather, delicious food, beautiful scenery and incredibly down to earth, friendly people.
It has been hard coming back to temperatures below zero here today.
It was our first trip to Asia but we hope to do many more. Would love to hear of any recommendations about place to see in Vietnam, it is high on my list of places to visit.
Here are just a few shots from our 10 day visit. I really must learn how to make a collage!

Sorry for the photo overload. Now to scrap the several hundred must keep shots!!
I will be back soon with a layout share. Stay warm. :) xx
