You might have noticed that I have been MIA lately. The reason is that I am back at work now 3-4 days a week and somehow my little brain thought that I would still have heaps of time to do all the other stuff I love.
OMG! I am such a

I am desperately trying to squeeze a 7 day week into 3 days and obviously that is not going to work. And to top it off when you run around like crazy trying to get everything done you just end up so darned tired!
So I am extremely thankful that I was well organised before I went back to work and had a couple of DT commitments up my sleeve. Otherwise I would have NOTHING to show

I am hoping that as we all settle into this new routine of me not being here to do everything for everyone that I will find some ME time in there somewhere.

So all I have to show you at the moment is my example for this month's challenge at
Scrap The Girls (which I had finished 3 weeks early!). I LOVED this challenge. The colours were brilliant to work with. Here is the details of the challenge from Scrap The Girls:

Welcome to the May challenge at Scrap the Girls!
This month we would like you to create a LO based only on the colours below (minimal amounts of black allowed)
Remember: Girls only, no boys allowed!
(colour chart courtesy of a previous Colour Combo's challenge)
The colours shades are only a guide only - eg, you can use lighter or darker shades of the same colours

And here was my example for the challenge

Kaisercraft Devonshire Collection - PP's, Die-Cuts, Flowers : Prima Flowers : Kaisercraft Pearls : Kindy Glitz : Pink Paislee - Alphabet Stickers & Clear Stamps : Grafix - Transparency : Staz-On Ink : Bo Bunny - Clear Stamps : Lace Trim : Ric Rac : Ranger - Distress Crackle Paint

Hopefully I will chat to you all soon :)

It's such a shame when work has to get in the way of our scrapping plans, isn't it? But I guess it helps pay for our habit! LOL
