A.W.A.L

I know, I know-I have to be the slackest blogger in history!

Have had a really busy couple of weeks. The kids have had their school holidays & are back at school. I have been super busy with family stuff & have created a few projects along the way.
I was a very lucky girl last week. My hubby & I went to test drive a car that we had our eye on & drove it away that very day. SO MUCH FOR JUST TEST DRIVING IT!!!!!!!!!I took some pics of it today so I will share one later.

I had another fun filled day yesterday at SRAPSIDAISY. We celebrated National Scrapbooking Day with a day filled with lovely ladies full of inspiration & some yummy cakes & slices were thrown in there too.
We Had a lovely Sunday drive today. We had to take the new car for a "Good" drive so we headed to a local beach for a picnic. Well it was so darn cold we almost ate it in the car. But we had a lovely day out with family so that is all that matters. Plus I had the chance to take a few new pic's to get me inspired.
I will share a few pages that I have created over the last few weeks.
The first is a challenge that I have been running over at the Scrapsidaisy Forum courtesy of www.pagemaps.com.
This is challenge Number 5-
I used Making Memories Animal crackers to create the challenge page, Basic Grey buttons & October Afternoon stamps.
Cosmo Cricket Honey Pie papers, Bazzill Wings Blossoms & Autumn Leaves stamps.
K & Co Berry Sweet papers, Basic Grey stamps & basic Grey buttons.
Lastly I have to send out A HUUUUGE thank you to Carol (aka Crazy for crafting). Carol sent me (via a local friend) a lovely, lovely RAK all the way from the U.S! She is so generous that it is amazing. I am honoured to say that she is a blogging friend! So again Carol Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! 7 you had better keep an eye on your mail box.......he he he
I hope everyone has a safe and fun filled week!
ENJOY
Jules

Your layouts are always so inspiring!!! Everytime I see them I want to go create :D I can totally understand being a bad blogger. Life gets so busy sometimes I wonder how to ever find time to do anything on the computer at all, lol! I've been bad too as in not visiting my blogging friends, as you can see I'm trying to catch up :D Have fun with your new car! And have a great weekend ^_~
