June Challenge

Well finally my June challenge is finished, it's not quite how I wanted it to look but as I'm having trouble with both hands it's not so bad, I can always change or re-do it when things settle down.

The theme was Summer and I'm not a great one for taking scenery pictures, I much prefer them to be of my family. My daughter doesn't come out with us very often, she's busy with work and study and her own things, so most of my recent pictures feature my son, his sons and my lovely hubby.

Thank you for looking and any comments you may wish to make

Staff Birthday Cards

Over the holidays I have managed to make a few cards to start on the list of birthdays at work - I think I need about 53 this year, I try to make these as simple as possible, so that the children can take them around to be signed - that way they hopefully won't get damaged, this year I set myself the challenge of using up as many papers/embellishments from old stock as I could. So far I am doing well on this, I haven't bought anything new for these at all. Although I did buy a set of nesties to make some special cards (more of that later)

I did have a few more but my husband and daughter have had them.
Now for my special cards - my Mother-in-Law is 80 on Sunday (she doesn't blog hop so I can post her cards here). We also went to our Nephew's wedding too.

The first card is from Hubby and me, the 2nd and 3rd are for my Son to choose from and the bottom one was for the wedding.

July Challenge

Finally I am getting there with my challenges that I set each month over on Docrafts. I am way behind and still need to make June, August and then September's ... BUT I have managed 1 Layout during the school holidays.

The theme was Tea-Time and as my grandsons always seem to be munching on something I thought I'd play on the title - when they have a picnic it always looks like feeding time at the zoo as they fill their plates and sit eating and chatting. There are a few more embellishments on there now but the pictures were too blurred to use.
