My poor neglected blog! I feel so bad for not blogging and for not commenting on any blogs but time just ran away with me this last week. It was all good though. You see, it was my birthday about four weeks ago and my DH told me for my present I could have a scraproom make over.  Now, it was all a very exciting thought but if you could see what my scrap space looked like before, you would understand why I was a bit reluctant to start. On Saturday, the 11th I woke up at 6 am and couldn't get back to sleep... so all these ideas started to form in my head. By the time DH woke up, I was dressed and ready to take on the world! Lol! We were planning a nice relaxing weekend.  I started measuring up and after waiting for DH to shower and have breakfast, we were off to Ikea. By Saturday evening all  the new furniture were assembled and by Sunday it looked like a tornado hit our house. There was stuff everywhere!! We had to empty the two big stationary cabinets to move it. It took me all week last week to find a place for everything but I had heaps of fun! Just for the record... my hubby is the best! :)

Now, enough chatter about my adventures... lol! Don't want to bore you all after being absent for so long. I really just wanted to share a layout I finished over the weekend. I'm participation in the Scrapbooking Top 50 June CC and this is for the lovely Sarah's challenge. We had to include some hidden journalling and some enchanted flora on our layout. :)
 I just love this Dusty Attic 'Vine' chippie! The pattern papers and embellies are from an old range of K & Company called Wild Saffron that were in my stash for a while. The felt flowers and bugs are gorgeous and the colours are just great for outdoor pics.
 My hidden journalling under the word 'Laugh'.
 I've used a bit of calico under my chippie word. Really like the effect. :)
That's all for today. Lol! Almost missed my Monday post again. :)
Hope you have a wonderful week. Thanks for visiting!
Until next time.
