Pain's just no good for the mojo

Hi Scrappers,

Looking at this blog you'd think I didn't scrapbook anymore. But I've been scrapping away with some Scrapville goodies and a sketch that Anita has provided for this months challenge over on the blog. Here's the sketch:

and here's what I came up with...

It hasn't got as much on as I'd like - this is because I broke my toe when I was right in the middle of making it. By walking into a wall. And I hadn't even had a drink. I blame it on the fact that I turned 40 a couple of weeks ago! Now slamming your toe that hard into a wall does hurt quite a lot and really doesn't help your scrapping mojo so to me it looks a little unfinished.

Anita's also done a fab card sketch for the monthly challenge -

For this one I used a heap of Pebbles papers, an Imaginisce stamp and my Waltzingmouse stamps -

Since 3 of my friends are pregnant I figure there's a chance I'll need a baby boy card pretty soon!

Finally (yep, it's a long post), I've had a play with my beautiful monthly Scrapville pack - it's full of papers and embellishments by Scrapcake called My Private Happiness. Very different to my usual style (flowers?) but I'm really happy with how the card and layout have turned out:

Well, that's more than enough for this post. Hope you all have a fabulous week and thanks for stopping by,
