Project Life! - Kraft it Up - June Challenge

Huge Hello Everyone!
As you may have gathered by the title of this post
I have given the Kraft it up
June Challenge a whirl!
At Kraft it up this month the Challenge
 is to create a "Project Life" inspired layout. 
 Use a week out of this month and take a minimum of 3 photos
(more if you want to) and you need to journal about what has happened that week.

As you may well know you also have to use Kraft paper or Kraft pattern paper
as the background.
I sort of found myself creating a double

Be back soon!

I really enjoyed doing this challenge, I found it exciting to edit and print my
instagram photos and use them as my scrappen photos,
As I seem to be using my phones camera to quickly snap a moment
I otherwise would miss :}
Got to love the instagram :}
I have used mostly Echo Park Papers from a 6x6 Pad, along with some
My Mind Eye Phrase stickers and bunch of Eye Candy Magic Fimo creations
and doilies I have floating around in my sash.
Hope you have whirl of this challenge too!

Today I am thankful

Huge Hello everyone!

I'm happy to say that I have been lucky enough to receive more hours
from Bunning's and am now the Bread winner in the

running the house!

Now to enjoy my first day off in a while I wanted to checkout what the lovely
ladies at Sassy Scrappers are up too

and this months challenge is
to use the quote

and really help myself keep focus on the things I am thankful for,
another great reason for scrappen :}
I'm blown away to see a message to say that I had won last month sketch challenge!
OMG! so so so grateful and just utterly over the moon!

So a HUGE Shout out to Olga and Sassy Scrappers!!
I'm pretty happy to say I have also been still getting my creative thing on
 and diving into some digital scrappen
and creating some Project Life pages through an online class by Jessica Sprague.

I'm pretty stoked with the outcome from this class so I decide to sign up for the
this class goes on for 12 weeks, basically each Friday there is a new lesson
and you learn new techniques and by the end I'll have 12 layouts :}
So a nice easy stepping stone course :}
But I have to admit it's not as good as the real
Got to dive into paint sometime :}
Hope you are all doing the same, getting creative and enjoying the moments we
are all thankful for :}
Sending you loads of warm wishes and HUGS!
