October is here.....YAY!!!

Well the months just seem to be clicking over so quickly before we know it will be Christmas.  One of my friends posted on her Facebook status that she was expecting and I was thinking oh the poor girl, she had been training so hard at the gym to lose the weight from her last pregnancy it didn't seem fair to to just start making head way to be put it all back on again.  Well it wasn't a baby she was expecting but a reference to yes they will be expecting Santa in 12  OMG where is the time going!!!

I also wanted to share this beautiful gift my friend brought back with her from the Hunter Valley, not all of us a fortunate to take holidays or even afford them at the moment so it was really nice that she did think of my whilst she was on hers and brought me a little holiday cheer.  Funny really because I had a little gift waiting for her as well but min was some washi tape, better on the hips I

And what also comes with the start of the month, NEW CHALLENGES over at COLORFUL CREATIONS, no I'm not trying to scream this at you...just don't want you to neglect checking out this site and maybe joining in on the fun not too mention we have a RAK for each event and who doesn't like the opportunity to win free scrapbooking products.

I know most of the USA and other countries are heading into winter, however here in Australia the weather is warming up nicely so I just had to use some nice summer pastel colours.

Love this picture of my DD, we all had such a fun day. This will part of a double page so I can scrap the other photos that a friend took for me.

 Again I have kept my page under the $10 budget.  The background paper is a really old SEI  paper from their Stitches collection at least 6 years old.

I used a crafters workshop stencil to create the circle with the dimensional pearls and my confetti was punched from scraps  from the paper that I matted my photo with.  Again this is paper is a really old MM watercolour paper nearly 8 years old. 

Other products used:  FabScraps Victorian Range, Prima Blooms, Bazzill Cardstock, Basic Grey Scraps, WeR Alpha Stickers, MM Brads & PP, MME Swirl, Matha Stewarts bubble punch.  Unknown Ribbon, Twill and Stickers.

Thanks for looking and those to those that have left comments, they always appreciated.
