texture and shabbiness, mmmm

Not much to talk about today - feeling a bit uninspired word wise but happily am getting back into the paper scrapping - Yay!

Henry was home with a cold yesterday and oddly enough gave me the excuse to stay home all day! Having browsed the web in the morning, was inspired by Lizzy's LO for Let's get Shabby - if ever there was a challenge site I should be stalking, this is it.  They are just coming to the end of their latest challenge, summer themed with the following colours to choose from
 

I choose white, sand and seaside (well sort of turquiosish as well) -

 


My beloved with the delusions of youth (and even then, he apparently wasn't the most capable of surfers..) He has given the board to a friend who has a house near the beach.


Look, some depth and texture on my page - so much fun.


And the latest sketch at Scrap Friends is irresistible -



Was very excited to win a voucher for their store a couple of weeks ago - am slowly picking out some very yummy supplies (possibly involving lots of washi tape) from their wonderful store - so good to see quality affordable stuff in Australia, very rare.


Ok, washing and then more scrapping. Also a bit excited as after some delays, the drainage will begin on our new house today (see what an exciting life I lead???)

cheers xx
