Update before our Holiday

Oh my goodness...we are off on holiday tomorrow & I can't wait...I have been hanging out for this hol since October when Wayne's mate said we could use his cabin any time we wanted...I said "book it Babe!"
So we're off to Matata...but I'll have no computer access - how will I cope????

Not to worry, I'm a survivor hahahahahahaha!!!

Well I haven't been as busy scrapping as I had hoped to many forum distractions I think ;o)
But I have managed to create something at least...."Forever Mine" is a combo of Jacqui J's weekly challenge at SBD & JulieH's Elsie challenge at Embellished.

Jacqui's challenge was to select a theme from an upcoming magazine call & scrap it, Julie's challenge was to take inspiration from fashion...found a cool men's T-shirt on the 2 for $15 table at JayJays the other day...with a tatto print on it - so that was my inspiration.

The photo of Wayne was originally colour...but I took it into the GIMP & desaturated it & then posterized it (at 2) then added a Jason Gaylor tattoo brush...simple, but not necessarily easy ;o)

So I guess I'd better submit it to fulfill the other half of the challenge :o)

"Hitchin' a Ride" is another page for Mal Mal's album...I used Ali's January kit for this - the papers are just sooooooooo YUM!!! They're Piggy Tales - Frog Prince range.
This is for the Embellished Jan/Feb sketch challenge.

I trimmed some Heidi Swaap alphas down for the title...jeepers they are BIG!!

Gotta say I am loving these pics of the boys & I love that I can scrap them over & over cos they're going into different albums.

We had a lovely dinner last night, Heidi & Richard came over for dinner - so Wayne whipped up his entertainer's special: Salmon - YUM!

And after dinner Wayne & Richard discussed the many virtues of having scrappy wives hahahahahaha.
And I even managed to get a good pic of Heidi & I together - woohooo.
Well I need to sort & pack all my scrap gear for my holiday & Taigy is whinging about a sore thumb - so I guess I'd better get off here...and no I haven't sorted the clothes to be taken yet - I've got my priorities LOL!!
