Let's Get Shabby Sketch Challenge

Here is my entry for the current LGS challenge.
This month it involved a sketch and "something vintage" so i used some of the lace i found at the op shop a week ago and some random bits and pieces i got off ebay or as gifts as well as gorgeous prima flowers, heidi swapp alphas and journaling tags from both Daisy D's and Bella. Phew.

Uploading Layouts

Here are some recent layouts.

The wedding ones were completed during the month of September. There is one in there that is based on the current 'sketch to inspire' over at Pinkalicious Sketches. Can you guess which one it is? The ones that are of normal, everyday life were completed... TODAY! I finally did some more scrapping after taking a bit of a break from it for a few weeks.

They're pretty average, but... meh.

Yikes, it's been a while!

Life has been... busy in a fun way. I really REALLY enjoyed my school holidays this time.
I resigned from my job at the end of last term. LONG STORY!

Here are a few photos of some recent happenings at our place and around here somewhere :)

Meet Cocoa & Vader, our guinea pigs.
We got them just under two weeks ago and it's been love LOVE LLLLLOOOOOVE ever since.
I had originally named Vader "MILLIE" but that lasted all of about 3 hours, and then Ben came home and decided he looked like Darth Vader. Hrrrmph. Cocoa is my baby and I just adore him.

I went up to Atherton and killed two birds with one stone. Originally made plans with Antonella but, look who else was in town!! Frank (who i went to uni with and who is Ant's good friend as well) was up from the Isa and so he joined us for our catch up sesh at the Coffee Club.

Oh, and a few weeks ago we had to dog-sit the Dog-In-Law, Milo, for a night. He's such a pleasant pup. Love him.

Riiiiiiight at the beginning of the holidays, the ROSHC girls came over to my place and we had a little morning tea. It was sooo good to catch up with the girls. We're going through a similar sort of stage of life at the moment... Karina and her boyfriend just bought a house, as did Katie and her boyfriend a few months ago.

Chloe was up from Townsville last week and so we caught up and made things right. It only took a year, some chocolate cake and a random op shop hop to make everything better. Here she is, pictured with a random "kool" car we saw at the shops.

Ben bought these BEAUTIFULLY scented roses at a road side stall on the way home last week, just because. Isn't he just awesome?!

Oh, and I had a tupperware party a few weeks ago too. Ben's mum just started demonstrating Tupperware a few weeks ago and so I had a party.

And here's a pic from our Housewarming which was a while ago now. It's just Stephen, Katharine and Benny pictured here. It was a good night with about 20 of our mates over for a BBQ and quiet drinks. Good times.

This was just Saturday night. The usual crew, our fantastic five. My best mates.

Annie & I being posers.
Adam's ute yesterday at Ross & Locke. He managed to drain the battery by playing music the whole 3 hours or so that we were there so we had to push start it to get it going again. I'd like to think that my awesome wheel turning, braking and then finally "pushing" actually did help the boys get it going again. Cocoa and Vader having a look in the mirror and just playing around during their Very Secure free range time in our room teh other day. I was completely anal about making sure they didn't poop on the carpet and surprisingly they held it in. Well done, guys!

And finally.... the hutch that Ben has been working on for the last week or so is finally finished. Well done, Ben!! :D

...I haven't done any scrapping in a while. Just haven't had the time or inclination for a few weeks. Lots of photos and great stories to document so i should probably get onto that when I get days off!
