Bad, bad blogger

I know, I know, it's been almost a month. And I promise I haven't forgotten. I'm still thinking about the new name. I've had some good ones suggested but not quite 'it'. So if you want to have another go at it please do so. I came up with one myself that I'm still tossing up. It might be a good one, especially since I'm considering to get a bit more serious with my photography and look into some courses and stuff like that. But I'll keep that name to myself for the time being.

Not much to report. Crazy busy with life in general. Ah, only two more weeks until the school holidays. At least I won't be running out the door every morning for work. Although school holidays usually bring other stresses with them... This time around I have a birthday party to organise for my soon to be five year old. She wants a fairy princess party so that shouldn't be too hard. I'm predicting lots of pink and glitter! I guess I'd better get a move on with those invitations.... I think I'll chicken out this time and just buy some rather than make them. Could be a good job for tomorrow.

Working with the Lime Tart September Full Tart at the moment. It is packed with stuff and there is no way I can use it all in the 6-7 projects I'm planning on. He he he, I love lots of left-overs.

September newsletter went out at the beginning of the month at Scrapgal. Very exciting changes happening there at the moment as we've started a blog alongside the forum. The Design Team will be posting every Monday, Wednesday and Friday with challenges, inspiration, articles, etc. Forum members can create their own blog there too. Check it out. In my post you'll see a teensy wee sneak of the Lime Tart September Full Tart too ;-). Must say visiting the Aussie Dares after I'd done my article and project to go with it was a bit of a nasty surprise. Especially since this was the second challenge I'd dreamt up as the first one (making old patterned paper look new again) more or less got taken up by my fellow DT member Kimberly. *sulk (nah K it's okay, great minds think alike and all that, LOL). Anyway, just in case you're wondering, no I did not steal their idea. I came up with it after going through my own old layouts (like this one) and completed my article and card before they posted the challenge. I've emailed one of the contributors and explained the situation. Mind you I also remember Viv Bonder using lots of 'natural' or found materials. If I only had a tiny portion of her 'arty-ness' (is that a word?) I think it was her who used twigs for the spine of a mini album. Not sure, but it is totally something she'd do. Anyway, I digress.

I have made some other cards to be sent out to friends etc but haven't taken any pictures of it yet. So I'll just share the newsletter layouts and the card I made for my 'back to nature' challenge.
