Happy Easter to you all!!

We are having a quiet weekend at home, you know doing the things you seem to put off.
DH is outside in the shed, thining things out. DS is just up to his neck in dirt, like any nearly 4 yo boy and me, well I am fluffin around inside.
A bit of washing, a dab of cleaning and lots of scrapping.
Trying to catch up with my Savvy Challenges before the end of the month.
I was hoping my kit would arrive frome 2CC before the weekend, but alas Aust Post has not come to the party 8(
So it will have to be another jammed packed end of month thing to get my stuff done.

I did manage to get one more page out of the 2CC March kit, I really loved the kit and no surprises, it has sold. So I can't even say to you, get your butt over to 2CC to purchase it, cause you can't LOL!!!


But you can head over to 2CC anyway, the new challenges are up and they are fabulous.
There are 4 in total and they are all very different, so something should appeal to your taste.

My challenge for the month is to tackle the colours Green, Black and White on a layout. No other colours allowed, but you can use any shade of green on your page!!
You can use anything else that takes you fancy.
I was really happy with my funky page, definately lovin green ATM

How you Doin

I also did Amanda's challenge-.......create a layout with the word LUCK or LUCKY really big on it......also, you must include at least one green patterned paper....and a cluster of 4 embellishments.....anything else goes as long as you meet the minimum requirements.

Here is what I came up with,


I hope to try Celeste's round page challenge and Renee's Mirror challenge as well.
So pop over to 2CC and have a look, all challenges need to be uploaded to the gallery by Midnight April 14th to be in the draw.
Don't forget to check out Alicia's page plans as well.
A single page plan is on the menu this week, we are hoping to get double points this week if there is enough entries.

OK enough from me today, of to some more scrapping.
Hope you all have a wonderful day with your families tomorrow, try not to eat too much chocolate and stay safe xx

2CC March Kit-My job has begun

Well I have been scrapping my butt off this weekend, my first 2CC kit arrived Thursday, but I couldn't pick it up from the Post Office until Friday.
The kit is just stunning, Autumn Leaves Manhatten range right up my alley!!
I wasn't expected to make the deadline, but I didn't want to drag the line.
So it was head down and butt up and off I went, this is what I managed to produce,


Alicia Barry's Page Plan Week One








Well there you have it, a very productive weekend and the kit just keeps going and going. Hoping to do one more page tonight.

Until next time, stay safe xx

A new month and new challenges

Well March is upon us now, so that means new challenges for the month at Scrapbook Savvy. A big congrats to all the winners of the February Challenges.

So this month I actually spotted a scrapbook related Ad that took my fancy,

March Ad Challenge

I really liked how uniform the Ad looked and loved the chance to use a large photo.
I have used the very versatile BG-Two scoops papers from the Savvy Shop and was very happy with the end result.



Ok I have been a bit slack the past 2 weeks, but it is with good reason.
For the past week and a half I have had a severe tooth ache.
OMG I have never had one before, it can make you want to pull your head off.
Well my fear and I mean blood curdling fear of Dentist sort of got in the way of getting treatment. When I finally succumbed to the pain, I couldn't get into the Dentist for another 4 days. No-one to blame but myself, but all is well now.
