Time to post...

Do you ever get close to the end of the month and realise you had been busy creating various layouts for different challenges but you haven't posted them on your blog yet!???/ Well I tend to do this a lot! So here are some layouts for various challenges this month!!!!!

This first one was meant to be for" Scrap the boys!". BUT after re reading the challenge criteria it says SCHOOL PHOTOS of your child there!!! So not sure it qualifies but Ill pop it in and see. This is his first day of Grade 3 this year! He looks happy and excited which really depicts Will's attitude really well. Hes so happy go lucky and my cruiser! Goes along with everything without dramas and he tries hard and does well at everything he attempts.
Will's first day in Grade 3........

                  Next is a layout based on the July 15th Sketch over at STUCK! sketches! 

Maya and Mackenzies toes!!!!

This one is using a quote which is part of a challenge at "SCRAPBOOKING FROM SCRATCH".
                                   "Cherish Yesterday,
                                         Dream Tomorrow,
                                             Live like crazy"........

And this one is a challenge I haven't done for a long time, "Kraft it up".
The challenge was certainly a challenge for me because a) I rarely use Kraft any more and b) I rarely scrap myself!!!!

So this challenge was to include a bucket list or tells a story about something you want to do in the future.
Lately I have seem to have lost my confidence in so many aspects of my life. I beat myself up about things I should do but don't and stress about things I am doing that I shouldn't. 
I am at a place in my life where soon I will have both children at school. I have started thinking about what I want to do for myself but what will be the best for my family. As all mum's would know its hard to juggle work and home life . I have a very supportive husband who continually encourages me to do what i want and there is no hurry but I feel I need to do something. I am wanting to go and finish some study and re enter the work force in kindergartens. But  I have lost all confidence in my ability to study and enter a workplace. So that's what I want to work on. 
Very arty and grungey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Got a bit carried away!!!!

I also completed this one. It started out as a layout for the "Scrap the Girls" challenge" with my aim being lime green , black and white.....but I couldn't make it work so I added a few more colours!!!!!!! But I did use the very cool embellishments from Charms Creations!!!!!!!!

PRICELESS!!! Check out Will's face!!!!!!!

Ok thats all for now. I have an hour to myself so might try and scrap!!!! Thanks for popping by, Eb xx

4 layouts at once - that's too many for me to comment on as they're all so fantastic! Good luck with your deliberations for the future - you will have no problem adjusting to study. You are organised and a very capable person! If you are sure that you can make it work with regards to family commitments then go for it!
