April Already?

That alliteration worked nicely! Well, it has been a little while but I have only been doing a little scrapping so here it is! Along with some I found in my archives.

A birthday card for Alicia. The cupcake is in several layers using mounting foam.

My friend's gorgeous daughter who made the best flower girl!

Baby shower card based on one of the Chook Scraps' Christmas Card Challenges.

A challenge from the SBT50 March CC. Turns out I won, yay!

One from a little while ago. Picture of our niece when she was a little younger. Can't believe she has just turned one!

Catch up!

Well I have been a little slack lately with updating the blog and also haven't seemed to have had much time to scrap. I have got a little behind on the Christmas Card Challenge, having only completed weeks 1 (below) and 4. Here is my week 4 card.

If you want to see all the challenges they can be found on the Chookscraps Blog.

In other news our wedding has been featured on Polka Dot Bride! It is pretty exciting and I am so happy with how it has turned out. You can see the post here.

Here is one photo as a sneak peak.

Chookscraps' Christmas Card Challenge

Chookscraps has started a year long challenge to make a Christmas card every week to avoid the usual last minute rush in December. Each week a step by step is placed on their blog for you to follow. If you use one of the steps then you can upload your creation in the gallery. There will be a few random prizes throughout the year but the main reward is having 50 Christmas cards to give to your friends and family.

The first challenge was put up on Sunday and here is my take on it.

A Truckload of Shoes

Well, even though I hate my skinny, size 11 feet with giant 'finger toes' I can still appreciate a fine pair of shoes. I also sure as heck would like to win $2000 worth of shoes! Well, all prayers have been answered by StyleTread! You can enter the competition here, although I would prefer you leave me with a better chance of winning! Hehe.

I would like to win a truckload of shoes as I need a kick up the butt in terms of my shoe collection. With my 'difficult' feet I tend to shy away from shoe shopping and, if I buy anything at all, it is always the same flat, lace up shoes! So much so, I even chose these as my wedding shoes for my wedding in 4 weeks' time! I am also recovering from torn ligaments in my ankle so I have been off heels for a while now and I need to get back into wearing them and some shiny new ones would be the perfect encouragement to get my ankle strength back up.

I have been browsing the StyleTread site for some time now and I have decided my favourite pair if shoes would have to be these beauties! Hopefully my feet would squeeze into the 10.5! Anything with stripes or polka dots has me sold!
