Way to go!

December – Nat’s challenge at natscreativechaos

the challenge for December is…
to create a scrapped item, it can be a layout, card, digi or OTP
with the following requirements

HANDCUTTING – a minimum of 3 handcut items must appear on your item
THE COLOUR PINK anywhere or everywhere

Here is my take on the challenge, titled “Way to go!”.

I have used K and Co Blue Awning papers, American Craft Vinyl Thickers, Green Tara and Maya Road flowers, Heidi Swapp alphas, button and pearl string from stash.

Journaling behind the PP.
It says, “it is not the pursuit of happiness that we find fulfillment, it is in the happiness of pursuit.”

Thanks for looking

In the Basic Grey Gallery………..

Yup!, one of my layout is accepted and is posted on the Basic Grey Online Gallery.

Here is the link
It was such a surprise and I am honoured. I love Basic Grey papers. Every collection is unique.
I am trying to get hold of the Bitter Sweet Collection…… Will do pretty soon….
The gallery also has ChrisW’s LO (from Debs’s forum)
and previously had LisaK and Nat’s LOs too.

Yesterday was a nice day here at Kal. Was raining and completely cloudy.
Just loved it. Not often we get this kind of weather here.
This year summer is predicted to be wet. How lovely! I love warm rainy days.

Including today, 5 days more for school holidays.
And 2 days of weekend included in this 5 days. Actually only 3 days.
I am so happy because I am off work as well!!
I can get more things done.
No vaccswim until 29th dec.
So I can organse my house a bit. Schedule kid’s routine.
And scrap a lot. Lol!!!

Sad news is my bestest friend is leaving town. She is moving to Mackey!!!
I will miss her a lot. Her DD is in my DD’s class. They are best friends.
My friend is my DS’s teacher too.
She has 4 girls aged 7 and under and she is one of the happiest woman I have ever seen.
No grumpy face, no shouting at kids, she works full time and manages 30 kids in the class!!, takes all 4 girls to grocery shopping and comes out smiling!!
She even built her new house. I am amazed.
My jaw always drops when she does all the work at school without lagging behind.
Her house is sparkling clean, She makes birthday cakes for all her kid’s birthday party.
Gosh! I wish I can do all of these and still look pleasant and cheerful!!!
She is my inspiration. I am all praises for her.
When I struggle with my work, home and 2 kids, I look upto her and get motivated.
Now she is leaving. I am very sad.
We cried today. I am saying no more. I eyes are filled.

Will post more later.
