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!!!!


I have been asked to teach at this amazing retreat next year along side these creative ladies.



Wow! I am so overwhelmed and excited to be asked!!!! 

Anyway I don't have a lot of creativity to share at the moment but I have managed these challenges this month.

This first one is for "Scrap the Girls".
The challenge is a colour one.
teal
orange
and white


Maya and I....


And this one is for "White with one"

This month's challenge is
WHITE + GREEN(S) + CHEVRON PATTERN




I traced a chevron pattern on my background and then highlighted some of it with my selection of green washi tapes. I also LOVE this flair button by "Greatest view".

On to other cool challenges that I need to remind you of.
Have you entered "Show us your stuff" yet????
This months challenge is an easy one!!!!


Use the colour YELLOW + washi tape!!



My handmade embellishment is actually these stamps ! I made my own. You can see instructions here!

And don't forget "123 Challenge"
I

This month you are required to use pastel colours and some wire!!! 

have fun!!!

Thanks for popping by, Eb xxxx
