Ok, so running more than 1 blog is more time consuming than I had anticipated, hence the lack of posting here.  But i thought i better get my LO's out there, so here we go:

This is my DT submission for the latest JJ Challenge - documenting the everyday moments in your life.  Here I captured my girls having great fun on the tyre swing under the oak tree in our garden.  Such  spontaneity and laughs.  I just  snapped away  whilst they continued  doing their thing  - I love  that these  shots are completely natural. I used my AMM Aug kits for these LO's.

Paper:  Dream Street Papers - Natures Poetry; Lettering - American Crafts; 
Epoxy Stickers - Creative Imaginations; Date Sticker - October Afternoon;
Buttons & Lace - own Stash; Fiskars Threading Water Punch 
This next one was also a JJ DT submission.  I really struggled with this Sketch that we had to follow from LSOS - in fact this was my second LO.  It's a bit 'bond' for my liking, but it conveys the day well. DH & my eldest participating in an Enduro Race in freezing cold conditions.  Great fun was had tho.
Paper:  Cardstock - Bazzil; Patterned - MM Lovenotes Collection;
Lettering: Pink Paislee; Journaling Card & Bracket: MM Lovenotes Collection;
Flowers from Stash; Brad - MM; Hand Sticker: Creative Memories;
Fiskars Threading Water Punch.
Thanks for looking!

Here we go

A few of my recent LO's:

The first one I quite like.  I used a Sketch # 34 from 52 weeks 52 sketches.  This photo is of myself, my sister Robs, my step-sister Kirigen and my eldest.  It was taken at the Aquarium at The Waterfront.  I changed it to b&w as we were all wearing different colours and clashed terribly!  I like this LO.  Not my favourite, but it's growing on me!
Paper:  Cardstock, Bazzil and Patterned Paper: WeR Memory Keepers
Lettering: AC Thickers (which i stamped with Sepia Brown & 
doused with Dimensional Magic); 
Rubons: Pink Paislee; Flower:  Prima

The last one is quite cute (i think).  The photo is of my eldest with a friends Sharpei Puppy, Rocky.  He fell instantly in love with her when he realised that she was going to lavish him in all the attention he wanted and more!  She was just as much in love and when we left it was indeed with a heavy heart!
