Scrapping Time

 
Hello Everyone!
Welcome back to my blog.
 
Warning this is a long post!
 
Today I am just doing an update of what's been happening in my little scrapping world in the last couple of months.
 
 
 
 
Firstly a BIG Congrats to my Beautiful Mum -June Mahoney- on her Top 3 at Scrap Africa.
November "Tag It" Challenge.
So happy, thrilled and excited for her.
Well done Mum...your cards are Just Gorgeous.
 
 
In 3rd place is this gorgeous project by 14. June Mahoney.  Congratulations June! ;-)
 
 
Tag 1
Tag 2
We loved your 2 tags June! This one is vintage and so fabulous and the other one so festive and wonderful! Really stunning! ;-)

 I played along with this November   sketch at Scrap Africa and was thrilled to be in the Top 3.
A big Thank You to Scrap Africa and their magnificent DT for your inspiration and for stopping by to leave such beautiful and kind comments.  Each comment is truly appreciated.

Second place goes to 9. Janice Nicholls Australia with her amazing and gorgeous page!
Well done Janice! ;-)
We loved the clean styling and the twine to divide up the blocks.  Just a beautiful page, with fabulous styling! Pretty in Pink certainly does the trick! ;-)

This is the November Mood Board over at Scrap Around The Word.
Absolutely Gorgeous...I had to play along.
 
 
This is such an incredible challenge site.
I am daunted by the many urber talented crafters who play along here  each month, so this is only the 2nd time I have played along. Lots of gorgeous MM  styles  which I really admire but just cannot seem to  do. I really loved the Mood Board and thought what the heck stick to your style and play, create and have fun.....so I did ......and

*******************************************************
 I haven't submitted any layouts for quite awhile now.
After lots of encouragement from a wonderful friend telling me you should submit this
 and this ...I decided to give it another go.
Thank You......I was lucky enough to have 1 accepted.
                             Its always a thrill to see your work published...well it is for me!
 
*****************
Our beautiful daughter is getting married next year so I have made the hard decision to step down from a couple of Design Teams to focus on her day. If I am on a Design Team I like to  make sure I fulfil my DT commitments /requirements. I  didn't feel like I would be able to do this so I have stepped away to let someone else have that opportunity.
 
I was asked if I would like to be a DT member of a new blog starting next year.
I was thrilled and felt very honoured to be asked and excitedly jumped in  boots and all and said Oh yes  please, I would love to. Thinking more about it...I have decided not to join    :(.....but I will be there to play along if I get a spare moment. Keep your eyes open for this new Blog starting in  2015. Its going to be AWESOME
 xx
 
****************************
 
I'm  sure that many of you would not have made it to here,  and I wouldn't blame you....
but if you have
THANK YOU , THANK YOU, THANK YOU.
 
I really enjoy my scrapping time and I really appreciate your, support and beautiful comments.
 
 Have a fabulous weekend and I hope you are able to find some time to get Scrapping.
 
Its December can you believe that.
A busy time for everyone .....as much as I would like to  be creating,  I don't think you will see many pages here during this month.
 
Thanks for stopping by!
Take Care
 
Janice xx

You have been very busy and all work is really wonderful.. well done on your Mum too.. her tags are lovely.. and I know you will be back on teams after your DD's wedding, I can only imagine how busy life is organizing a wedding.. haven't had to do that yet!! Take care and all the best for the Christmas season...

I hear you. I stepped down from all of mine bar CSI and the two I help run. It is exhausting and time consuming and with the twins and a wedding in May I am feeling like I am run ragged at the moment. I have not created anything in ages. Not a nice place to be.
I love all of these and you have been on a roll. I love your style and you deserve these wins. <3
