While catching up on my blog reading I came across a great idea being organised by my friend Karen. The past couple of year she has taken part in Blogtoberfest where you blog everyday during October about whatever you like. Sadly this has come to an end this year but Karen has taken over the reins and renamed it Blogtober. I'm always wanting to blog more and I think this will give me the kick up the bum I need so I'm going to give it a go!

This week I've had a much overdue week off work which means I've managed to get back into the scrapping groove with four layouts completed.
One layout i scrapped this week was for this months ScrapMuch? Challenge. This months challenge was to use this sketch.
I used papers from Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection and embellishments from her Fine & Dandy line as both scream birthdays to me.

Now that the birthdays have passed I can share two birthday cards I made at the beggining of the month. The first card was for my mum.
The second card I made was for my Sister in law. I brought some Gorjuss Girl stamps a while back but had not used them so I thought it was time I had a play.

Welcome to a new month. It's starting to feel as though summer is over, did we actually have one, and the nights are starting to pull in slightly. A new month means a new Challenge YOUrselfchallenge. This month the challenge is to use this sketch and the words "Note to Self"
As soon as I saw the challenge I was reminded of a photo I accidentally took at Santa Pod earlier this year
The title made me think of adding notes to a memo board so I used a cork effect paper from Crate Paper Journey for my background. As my photo was black & white I went mad with my colours picking papers from my scraps pile.
I love these gold Thickers from Dear Lizzy, they look as though they should be chipboard but as they are foam they are so easy to add to layouts!
