Here We Go, Here We Go, Here We Go

Hello Friends,
So, we're another month down (almost) and another CC finished over at Bon's Scraps. I promised you pics of my latest, and here they are, fresh from the CC at Bon's.
This first one is from Sandie's AWESOME class. It is with deep sadness that I share with you all the fact that Sandie has resigned her position on the DT. She is such an inspiration and her talents as a DT member will be greatly and sorely missed.

That does mean there is an opening for a DT member, though I am sure most of you already know about this! Competition closes on 31 May, so still a few days to get your applications in! The criteria, I am told, is not as difficult or as volumous as previous years, so you may well be able to put together the winning entry this weekend!! Good luck if you decide to enter. Can't wait to see who wins!

The next LO below was for the awesome sketch - also designed by the amazing Sandie - she really does ROCK!!

And this one was for Bon's Colour Challenge - pink, cream, black and white... I don't love pink, so it was really good to give this one a go, and I am really pleased with the result.

And this one is also inspired by Sandie... because she is leaving the DT, Bon came up with the brilliant idea to have everyone scraplift one of Sandie's gorgeous LOs for the Scraplift Challenge. Was a FAB idea and of course a wonderful LO to lift from... I was inspired by the rounded corners, a family photo, and flower cluster and journaling. We had to have a B&W photo and include something red.

And lucky last... this was a go at the DT Challenge, as I had finished all the others. We challenged the girls to use an 8x10 photo, no patterned paper and to use ribbon and lace. Love how this turned out!

So there you have it. If you're not already a member over at Bon's, why not join up now and be inspired and challenged to step out of your comfort zone. You'll be amazed by all the talent in the gallery and will well and truly want to expand your scrapping style!!

Thanks for looking. Warmest wishes, Catie xo

A very special bird

Hello friends,

Aren't these pics just gorgeous?! I went outside to feed our dog this evening and take the washing off the line (yawn) and look what I saw in the sky above our house. Can you see the shape of a bird in the clouds?

Here's a closer look...

It was just before sunset... I went back out a little bit later once the sky was getting darker.... and got these as it was disappearing.

And then I spotted the new moon...or is it the first quarter moon?? Anyhoo...

Wow, pays to look up every now and then ;)

On a different note, here's the latest LOs I've done using the May Boy kit over at Bon's.

Gorgeous papers huh?!

Don't forget about the CC at Bon's tomorrow night!!

Thanks for looking. Warmest wishes, Catie xo

Guess What?!

Hello lovelies,
So, I am super duper uber excited this week!!
Can you think why??? Hmmmm, only that I have received my first ever "accepted for publication" email!!!!!! SC want to publish my 'Captivating' LO, which I haven't had a chance to load onto here yet, but if you're a Bon's regular, you will have seen it in the gallery!
It's going to be in Issue 84 (or possibly 85). I am so super happy! Can you tell!

Seeing as though I can't share that one with you, thought I'd share some others...

This one was for the amazing May sketch over at Bon's:

And this one is for the Write Now challenge for May over at Bon's also.

FAB challenges this month, as always, and I really feel like my scrapping style is growing since taking on these amazing challenges. LOVING IT!!!

This last one is for the Room of the Month challenge at Bon's.

Off to do some more happy dancing ;D

Thanks for looking. Warmest wishes, Catie xo

Happy Mother's Day

Hello lovely friends,
Wishing all mummies out there a very Happy Mother's Day! I hope you have all been thoroughly spoilt and have had a wonderful day with your families.
I got to sleep in, then got breakfast and homemade cards from the children in bed, then got to read my book in bed for a while before getting up and getting ready to go to lunch with my Mum and Dad, Oma and Opa. Had a lovely lunch, then spent the afternoon scrapping, and am now watching tele with DH. So a lovely day overall!
Will update again soon with a couple of LOs I have completed this weekend. Watch this space...
Thanks for looking. Warmest wishes, Catie xo
