August already!! Less than 2 months and my mum will be visiting us, woohoo!!

We finally got some bunks for the girls, nice white ones!! We were lucky as they were clearing the floor stock so we got $200 off, yay, love a good deal :) Now we only need to get a new expedit and a desk for me and we can change the rooms around!!

Anyway... so scrappy thing happening.

The new 123 challenge is up! The criteria this month are
1. Use something metal on your LO
2. Use an out of focus photo
3. Use at least 5 staples.

Here is my example.

Chels from ScrapBoutique sent me the gorgeous new October Afternoon "Ducks in a Row" the other week. She knows how much I have fallen in love with OA :) Luckily I had a scrappy day the next day, the morning with the CM ladies (I don't do the creative memories part but like the company and scrappy time) and the afternoon was spent at actsa. I did 2 LO's and 3 cards with them. 2 of the cards are already at their new owners and the ohter one is waiting for the little one to be born ;) (in case it's a girl.... am not sure of that lol).

I also did the Sunday Roast for the week long CC. We did it instead of Sunday on a Thursday. I also added a little twist and lifted Chels her LO. This is the roast.

And the last LO for today is made for Crafting in Style where I put up the August shaping up challenge. This month it's all about circles. Here is my example.

Thank you so much for visiting and thank you to all the people that are leaving lovely comments, they are appreciated very much!!! :)
Happy scrapping :)

Wow Manon, so much to look at here!! The photo in the top layout is so darling!! And the one of your daughter putting the little blankies on her dolls reminds me so much of my girls. They didn't have nice ones like these ones Mel made, but they use to use giant hankies!!LOL Loving all your cards too!!
