Life feels a little hectic at the moment. DH is working lots so it's me doing all the childcare and housework for now. Plus I have a few impending scrappy deadlines. Gladly, I was able to tick off one item from the list yesterday! Yay!!! I was invited to participate in Cardmaking, Stamping and Papercrafts' Stamper's Challenge. I had to make two cards using a stamp I wouldn't normally choose. It was a bit tricky at first, but once I came up with a couple of ideas I was happy with it was smooth sailing. I can't wait to see my cards in print!!!
I have also been scrapping! I started on this layout a couple of weeks back, and have only just got around to finishing it off. It is a pretty simple design, but the hand-stitching took me forever... each hole is 2-3mm apart!!! Feels good to scrap some fairly recent photos - these are almost a month old, taken when Ollie started solids at 5 months.

Oh and guess what?! It looks like Ollie is just about ready to crawl. He moved about a metre this morning doing a baby caterpillar commando crawl! Very cute and so exciting!!! Here's a pic;
Well that's it for now. I am hoping to scrap a bit today using my Dear Lizzy stash! Fun fun!!!
I hope you have a good day!!!
