Monster Post Alert!

OK - I admit it... I'm not very good at keeping my blog up to date but I think I can be ever so slightly forgiven due to the pregnancy sickness! Now 15 weeks pregnant, only 25 to go!!! Had a 2 week break of sickness but it came back this week but thankfully it hasn't been as bad as last month!

Have managed to get my creative streak back into gear though and throughly used up my February ScrapaGoGo kit on the next 3 LOs and a cute mini book - I don't think I've ever (in the 2 years of subscribing) ever used up a kit so quickly!
This was Kyle enjoying his 'Valentine' biscuit in Feb 2009 and as the title shows, he wasn't sharing!!!
Should really have this LO in my section of Photos I Love - photo of DH taken on our first trip to Disneyland Paris. Created the background circle/scalloped edging by hand and used Fired Brick Distress Ink for the scallops.
Created this LO about how the two men in my life get on so well with each other. Did this LO for the March Week 3 Challenge over on UKS.

Then on UKS it became time for my team The Indecisives to set a challenge - being an indecisive bunch, we actually set 3 challenges. I wasn't well enough to get my LO completed before the challenge went live, but I've finally completed it today...
This was for our Challenge No. 2 - where we had to scrap our favourite holiday, using colours of the flag of the country, 1 or 3 photos, use Stamping as a technique (see the stars!), follow a sketch (created by my talented teamie Katy Fox) and use a form of journalling that we haven't used before - as you can see my Dymo machine got used - only had it about 6-7 months without using it, so this seems like an ideal time.

Remember the mini book I created using the Feb GoGo kit, I selected just a few of my favourite and sometimes funny photos to do a mini book just about us as we are now (before Bump arrives!) Here are a few pages from it...
I cut up my GoGo box into 3x4" pages, used some acetate pages and some tags and ended up with a 24 page mini book. Can't take full credit for this little book though - I saw the idea a while back on Kevin & Amanda's blog here to create a mini book using scraps!

On top of those LOs and mini book, I've been doing some circle journals as well. Only a tease of a photo to show you though, can't have the recipient knowing too much about their CJ before they get it back!
This is using the ScrapaGoGo kit for March using a mix of the Sassafras Lass Amplify range and the fabulous GoGo designed stamps.

Now I will try not to leave it so long til my next post - Honest! I'll Try!!!
