Sorting and tidying ...

I have had a massive overhaul of all things scrappy in this house.  I think it's good to be reminded that scrapping does not have first place here in this family!!  :-)  It's so easy to get caught up in the creative moment, but yes, my family does come first :-) :-).  You've probably noticed that I am now only on 2 DT's - Scrapz.Biz and Lil' Red Rocket.  I resigned from Bird is the Word a couple of weeks ago.  It was a difficult decision, and I really loved being on the DT there - but my life is taking a different turn, and I love the fact I can concentrate on these two absolutely wonderful teams and I know I can give them both 100%.

Anyway, back to the sorting and tidying ...  

The Scrapz.Biz Biggest Loser competition has been going since the start of the year and it has been FABULOUS for organising tips and challenges to use up the stash!  My table certainly looks far tidier, things actually have a place to live, and I organised lots of bags I've had lying around.  To be honest, I think I've got just as many bags, maybe everything has just been reshuffled :-) LOL.

There is now a space BIGGER than a 12x12 page on my table :-).  DH says the table probably needs sunscreen since it hasn't seen the light of day before ... I'm not convinced :-)

So ... here's one of the last pages I created for the button challenge at Scrapz.


You can probably read the journaling there - I got an order to make 12 OTP handbag desk tidies ... lets just say that by the time I was finished, I really didn't want to see another handbag for at least a year LOL.

I have finally found a bit of mojo :-) after spending so much of my creative time catching up with my 52 week album, I am enjoying scrapping 12x12 again :-) :-).  Daily challenges are BACK at Scrapz now so I am busy creating for them :-).  I am loving this range ...


Another fabulous Echo Park range :-) :-)

Anyway, that's all for now, thanks for visiting :-) :-) :-)
