Long time, no see

Whoops, has it really been that long?
Well, the MIA from me has been due to absolutely no scrapping going on whatsoever for September (not sure why this is, combination of the can't be bothered and the scrapbook bank being full of furniture while the new carpet was being laid (woo hoo)).

So I am finally back in the bank, and a little scrapping has occurred.  Please note that nowhere have I claimed it to be GOOD scrapping, but scrapping it is none the less!

Firstly, a layout for the site Once upon a ... Sketch October 1 challenge:

And secondly for October's 1, 2, 3 challenge which is the word YOU, colour GOLD and LEATHER, SUEDE or LACE - my first thoughts were UGH, but then when this paper arrived it was just perfect!

Seems to be a bit of a pattern going on here with the photos!  Just as well the yellow t shirts match in well with these papers and criteria!

In other exciting scrappy news, the latest Scrapbooking Memories magazine has a great little feature called Easy as 1,2,3 sketch challenge where two talented contributors make a layout and card based on the one sketch - check it out here and if you click NEXT twice you can actually see it!
