Challenge ahoy!

It is the 31st of August..Which means I still have a few measly hours to post a couple of challenges!
I a not quite sure what took a hold of me? But inspiration struck a couple of days ago and I was able to create this:
Kraft It Up August Challenge:

This month was a sketch challenge.. So my layout was based on this sketch:

And then I set about creating this:

Scrap The Girls August Challenge:

The challenge this month was to use stars. Can you see them in there in amongst that busy bunting?
This layout also relates to this post about Milla right now..

And then after checking out Em Straface's Page Drafts blog..I simply love her sketches! I ended up joining in at over at Grand Diva's Creative Corner and created this:

Check out my handmade washi tape? Can you see it? Masking tape printed with stars.. I got the idea here at Maggie Holmes blog. Her layouts are always filled with such loevly little details.. I didn't actually watch the tutorial.. Just saw the idea and made it up as I went along.. Arrows on masking tape is my next adveture I think..This layout - which is my new fave - was based upon this Page Drafts sketch:

Phew! Scrapping overload for a change! So mojo officially back in da house! Sorry, terrible humor really..
 What else is happening in y corner of the world?

Lots of photos of various clients to share soon..

On the home front.. I had a great day..A breakfast out with my DH and two littlies.... Run home..Roughly 11km..La di da.... A snooze in the afternoon...Homemade hamburgers and salad for dinner.. Meatballs made for Monday at the same time...Washing folded and put away..More washing hung.. Purchased a mandolin to make a yummy and quick salad..Perfect for Summer... Picked up se bargains for my munckins at Cotton on Kids..And then a relax in our spa whilst reading Fifty Shades no3...

The kids also helped me make clean-eating, slow-cooked brownies for Rod's birthday tomorrow.. It's been in the slow cooker for four hours and I am waiting for it to cool. So I can't tell you how it tastes yet? I found the recipe at The Gracious Pantry..Admittedly I used white flour as I didn't have any wholemeal..And I may have been more heavy handed with the chocolate, ( it his birthday after all!)
but otherwise I stuck to the recipe...

Off to the footy on the train with our kidlets tomorrow..Taking our own hotdogs and brownies!
Go the pies!

Night xx
