"In Passing"

Happened to mention to Brendy the other day
needed another challenge to have a go at!!!

She pointed me in the direction of "Scottie Crafts"
saying she had seen a sketch challenge posted there,
why not take a look and give that a go.

This is what I have come up with.

Jackie and Sam cutting their cake, have used decorative
cake papers off the cup cakes of the cake as layering
some distressing, inking, made the leaves and inked white
flowers as close to hydrangeas colour decorating cake
as I could.  Hidden behind cake papers is back part of
thankyou notes they sent out.

Twice in a few days!!!

Well, back again... While making spaghetti today, had some time to finish a layout

of my best friend Brendy and myself at Jackie and Sams's wedding in January.

Who knows what I may complete tomorrow, but... still have one and a half

buckets of tomatoes looking me straight in the eye every time I walk past them!!!

But hey, us girls are good at multi tasking eh!!! LOL

Hi to all, well nearly three months since I was last here!!!  Pretty poor effort I must admit...

All VALID excuses though, a family
wedding. (Youngest Daughter was married in
January, credit to you Jackie tho', your
organisational skills are brilliant!!!)

My time was taken up with the right
"shots", nic nacs etc. that are all part
of my scrapbooking addiction  LOL!!!

L/O of the happy couple leaving the church.  The journalling behind RS photo
is the "Save the Date" card, the "Bride &  Groom" tags were tied to their little boxes of Hersheys chocolates, that Wedding party/guests had on their tables.

January saw four out of the five Grandies all totally enjoying the
local (TAPAWERA) annual "show day".
I am sure the fifth would have enjoyed as well, but had already gone home to Wellington with her Mum and Dad.

Mattie proved how safe!!!lol a driver he is, with Em having every confidence in him to ride "pillion"....

Angus (2nd from left)along with Hamish (left), totally loved the train rides and tug-o-war...

Does not seem too many years ago that their Mother's were the same ages attending the same event.
