today is the last day of the month and I really felt like scrapping today as I was childless for a few hours. But my mojo has disappeared:(.
So I decided to tackle some last minute challenges!!!!!

This one is based on the cool sketch at "Scrap Friends". I have been meaning to join in on their challenge for a while and today I did!

And I always try to do the monthly challenge over at "Anna's craft cupboard" and until today I hadn't had time.

This is Will at this years book week as a pirate!!! Thanks for popping by, Eb xx

Were you a lucky one!???

Hi again?
Were you lucky enough to get your hands on the latest "A Piece of cake designs" kit!??????

It is totally drool worthy!!!! It has amazing colours, fabulous embellishments and lots of pretties!!!

Here is one layout just to get you going!!!!!

I have used lots of paint and stamping to create my background and then have added some sticker strips  which I have cut up into smaller pieces, the cute tag and cute cherry on top button, along with some twine and some alphas. I have added a small amount of my own washi tape and the handcut butterfly!

Thanks for popping by! Eb x

Where do I start!?

I know it's been a while since I posted but so much has been happening!!!!

My first exciting news is that after a few years of umming and arghing we finally found our perfect block to build our own new home! We have looked and looked and never could find what we wanted until now!! We have bought an acre and a half in town!! So exciting and scary at the same time!!!! What made it more stressful was the fact that it went to auction while we were on holidays and we had to bid over the phone!!!! Thank goodness my uncle was happy to go to the auction for us!!

So as I said we recently holidayed in the beautiful Merimbula. We love getting back there to visit some of our best friends after leaving there about 9 years ago.
Here are just a few pics I took.....

And this is my other very exciting news!!!!
