Another Week Gone!

I can't believe that the weeks are flying by.....only 5 1/2 weeks left of school until the Christmas break (where has Brayden's Prep year gone:( ), which means 6 1/2 weeks until Christmas......not one Christmas present bought yet!!!!!
The past week has been rather busy, however I was able to squish in a scrap evening at Liz's. It was nice to catch up with the girls. So much so that they are popping in on Saturday for the day!! I have been working on my next project for Scrap That Poetry but you will have to wait for the 15th to see it!
The new online challenge came up and was run by Liz this time around. Liz, Cheryl and I have an absolute ball with the other ladies from The Scrapbooking Hut doing these layouts. Here is my take on Liz's challenge this month.
I have used basically cardstock but my snowflakes are using the Marrakech Collection by Kaiser. Yes I did make the larger snowflakes....can you remember being taught how to do this at school? It is amazing what comes in handy later in life:)
The other project I have completed this week is a wedding card for friends of ours, Geoff and Chrissie. They are getting married on the 27th of November.
I have kept the card quite simple and hopefully elegant. The 'g' and 'c' obviously stand for Geoff and Chrissie. I have painted them, stamped them and used Dimensional Magic on them. The patterned paper and tag are from the Chantilly page of the Argentella range by Kaisercraft.
I was able to use my brand new Imaginisce iTop tool - what a great addition to my tool collection! Just love it!
Until next time,

Hey Mel, just saw your circle time journal on your slide show and wondered what you used it for? Is it a school thing or home?

Heyya, The circle journals were done with a group of ladies. We each chose a theme for our journal and prepared the journal initially. Then we would pass it on around the group.....each having a month to complete our section of the next book. After that month we met....had a great arvo scrapping and passed the books on.....and so the cycle would continue. We always had a ball and we became great friends:) Would be happy to do a long distance one if you're interested...Mxx
