My last blog post....for now anyway!

Hi friends. I just wanted to do this post to let you know that I have decided to take a break from blogging. Things have changed quite a lot in my life in the last year or so, and I no longer have the time or motivation to keep my blog going. I want to thank-you all for the support and friendship that has been showed to me over the last few years!! I hope that sometime in the future things will change, and I can return to this world of blogging.

For now, there is the my FB page,  if you want to say "hi", and I also have an Instagram account which I post to quite often, if you would like to Follow me HERE.

I will see you all around, somewhere....

Smiles,
Rene'

Sjoe it's been a hectic few days in the Sharp household!! What with getting Caide all packed up and ready to go back to boarding school, getting Jamie ready for Grade 1 and Bryce ready for his last year of Primary School, I must confess to being rather knackered! Roll on weekend!!

You need to use at least one recycled item on your project. Create a card, layout or altered piece, that has a recycled item and please tell us what that item is.

Design Team Challenge at LET'S SCRAP

Hi Ladies. Hope you are having an wonderful weekend so far!! I was asked by the lovely Jeaunes if I wanted to play along with a Design Team challenge over at Let's Scrap, and I said "of course", I was on the team there for 2 terms and always enjoyed my time spent with a bunch of super sweet gals!!

The challenge is:  
You can use a photo of yourself, or something (not another person though) that is super important to you.  This can be coffee, diet pop, gardening, crafting - something that represents YOU!!  You can use any sketch from Let's Sketch.

I was excited when I saw the brief for this challenge, and I decided to do a layout about one of my hobbies that has become very important to me, my sewing!!

I used my Silhouette lots on this layout, it is such an awesome machine (especially when it has a new blade in it!!) The pretty papers are by Prima - Anna Marie Range and the hearts are by Little Yellow Bicycle.

I used the left hand side of this LET'S SCRAP sketch:

 
 Why not stop by LET'S SCRAP and play along with us, they always have GREAT prizes up for grabs! Enjoy the rest of your weekend peeps :)
