With Christmas fast approaching ( less than 1 month away), I have been finding less time to create, trying to do all the pre Christmas prep in a timely fashion as well as P&C duties coming thick and fast with the end of school term approaching. However the other day Sawyer's Place share some of there NEW exciting products and I knew I had to take a little time out and create with them. So I am proud to introduce you to Rourke's Rounds!!!!

The other day I had some very exciting news, and it has to do with Purple Pumpkin, as you know they do monthly sketches and I often run out of time each month to participate however I have been making a conscience effort to do so. So I am happy I did and as you say you have to be in it to win it and one of my layouts was chosen as a feature layout ;

And the winning layout which was chosen from Facebook;

Thankyou Purple Pumpkin for my voucher.

This also is a perfect time to share some Purple Pumpkin love around, they are having an end of year sale on the 30th November and they have a little competion happening so follow this link to the Purple Pumpkin blog and share the love!!!

Polly's Kits and Sawyers Place

So for something different for this post, I am a scrapper that loves to merge things together, this is one of those layouts, I have been subscribing to Polly's Scrap kits since I think about February this year and my thinking was why not get some new products every month and who doesn't like happy mail? and I thought if I ever had to go to a crop the kits where all done card stock and all the embellishments all I had to do was add photos.....

Now if you can see my shelf there are these beautiful kits and I haven't used them!!! well until now, if you can remember last month I went on a scrappy weekend away and these worked out so well..... but there was one thing that was missing, my washi!!!! but I will tell you a little trick rather than trying to figure out which Sawyer's Place washi to take, you need to go to BCF and grab a Shimano tackle tray, with the removable slots. They hold 20 washi tapes in a row and theres 4 rows so you don't have to decide what not to take.

NO - NOT- NOVEMBER !!!!!!!!!!

Can you believe its November already !!!!! That means Christmas is creeping up and that my big boy is turn 10!!!! I cant believe how 10 years has flown by.....

I have been suffering a bit of lack of mojo or maybe its motivation, but all I know is I haven't done alot of work but lucky for you I still have some layouts to share this might be the week to share some of the back log. So I will share another layout using Kaisercraft Butterfly Kisses, its amazing how with just a die and a 6x6 paper pad you can create a beautiful background.
