Where does the month go???

Huge Hello Everyone!
Well i wish i could say i got everything done i wanted to this week,
But i can't :(
I see to be running out time so quick i don't even realize that may is nill over!
seriously! how did that
I still wondering if i could squeeze in my last mintue scrap before bed tonight
but i might miss the last couple of episodes of true Blood season 3! my partner
is just into
But i can say i have past my learner's theroy! YEAH! now i'm booking in for my first driving lesson
i feel a little shame that its taken me this long to gt the courage
to get in and do it, but now it's come to a point it's just effecting my career chances
so off to driving school!

I must admit i have pulled a couple of layouts challenge out of god only knows
what time...i'm thinking the were done on Sunday/monday
but i still have a Get Picky challenge sitting on my scrap table screaming "Finish Me!"
and i have finally gotten the perfect pic for Scrap the Boys challenge!
now to squeeze them in before the month ends!
i also want to do a few more challenge at scrap thearpy but i'm thinking thats going to be taken up with my last of my June Sale goodies!
OMG! seriously loven the fabric buttons i have made this month as well as the super cute Fimo!
also waiting on some of my own designed chippie, but i think that might turn up late June or July..
oh also getting into dying some cute little crochet hearts...yes thats right Mel!
Hope hope hope i get all these up on the blog on June the 1st!
seriously an array of colours and textures!
Also lining up a speacil someone to play with some eye candy for us :)
i'll be sure to pop a few photos up befoe the day to give you a looksy :)

So what challenge did i get done this week
well i had to give Handmade by Suzanne monthy sketch a go!

i found this a little hard to get into, i think i was haven a low mojo day
but i dived in my sassafrass papers and let them shine there lovely colours for me :)
As you can see  have used some more of Chantels yummy
mini dolies! you can find them here @ Creative bits

I also wanted to get a Scrap jack challenge done, OMG!
seriously love this challenge blog!
if i had more time i would totally do more jacks!
but this month i jacked Mels layout!
i so love the design and the layers!
how lovely is mels layout! totally a heart melter!

i picked a couple of photos of my boys doing what they do best....being silly together :)

  here a few of the lovely buttons i've been creating for June Sale!
on so sweet! and some more of Chantels delish dolies!

Next i was taken by the inspiration from Stuff to Scrap
totally amazing blog filled with a very talented DT! seriouly! i'm always
finding inspiration from this blog! totally amazing!
the theme for the challenge is "Mother" plus some chippie
now i thought of the lovley photo i had taken of my mum just recently...
with some October afternoons papers and some of chip chop shop pink trim and creative bits
doiles and my own fabric button and yellow glitter threads, as well as the word
mum is out of chippie letters :)
i came up with this colour fest!

how sweet are these bunny buttons!
totally heart melting!
as well as my it reads
There is something magical about the word "Mum",
to me I instantly feel warmth caring and a hint of a smile.ONly after becoming a mum
myself i could understand how and why one word could be so powerful.
This is one photo that i believe captures a small glimps of love i see in my mum,
with her crystal blue eyes and warm smile always
open for an embracing Hug. Through this woman i learned wrong from wright,
love and laughter is the best medican.
i love her :)

then i ran out of space! i wrote the journaling around the page to become a boarder :)
i'm so happy with how bright and beautiful this layout turned out :)
and i had a good reason to use the pink! :)

Well with all this said and done, i better get a wriggle on and help with the dinner and the dishes
no play unless the work is done....unless you sneek
not always an option when the kids seem to beable to smell you out?!

well chickie babes i hope your week has been fun filled and you all have a ripper of a 
weekend! oh i hoping to get done to the swap meet at Mum's Bees Knees!
all sorts of crafty creative ladies will be there!
hoping to get me self a stall next month :) cross my finger :)

Also Thank you,  thank you, thank you!
for all the lovely comments you leave me they really make me smile :)
i have been trying to get a moment to get on to all your blogs but blogger and time have been working against me this past few weeks
but please don't think i don't care, cause i totally do!

happy creating! :)
