It's been a long time coming I know ...

Hi there friends and followers,

I know I've been a stranger of late and I really don't have any excuse for it - although I have been sick with this 'flu/virus' thing that I seem to get around this time every year.  Each and every wonderful day seems to fall into the next and before you know it another week is over and so is another bunch of challenges.

It's school holidays as all us Mums would know and it's really hard to keep the kidlets occupied but I've definitely found a way for Isabella ... I've introduced her to colouring stamped images with crayola pencils and baby oil and has filled many an hour doing this while I try to keep my mojo flowing (not always successful mind you lol).  I will take some photos of her handiwork and will post as a separate post within the next couple of days and I'm sure you'll be just as impressed as I am (or maybe I'm just biased? lol) ....

So anyway, here's my entry for the DYSU (Do You Stack Up) Scallops Challenge #15 and I must say that I'm reasonably happy with my effort - I just wish that my slightly over the top flower order from Wild Orchid Crafts would hurry up and arrive so that I can make my flower arranging prettier .... I love making my own little roses but am restricted to this size and it makes it difficult to arrange.

Oops, I've just remembered that I used these particular colours so that I could also enter this into the Sweet Stampin' Chocolate Challenge as well as Moving Along With The Times Challenge #94 mmm Chocolate. Interpret that anyway you will and I've decided to go with my two favourite flavours of filled chocolate - strawberry and peppermint - mmmmm yum yum .....

So, that's enough rambling from me, it's now 11.30pm and I'm ready for bed.  Hope this finds you all well and fighting fit.
