Something I can't live without...

This month at SUYS there is a fun new challenge asking you to create a project about something you can't live with out, and of course using a handmade object made by you or someone else.

I KNOW I cannot live without my husband so I made a card dedicated to him when he is away on business sometimes. We were lucky to be sponsored by Purple pumpkin buttons this month, and I included this fun button on my card.I have also added another card that was recently up in the hambly gallery that I made for valentines day for hubby as well!

love letters.....

When we started dating over 10 years ago, my husband then boyfriend sent me many love letters, although I don't receive that many now... on the odd occasion I do, I have kept them in a box. When I received this gorgeous new card keeper from Scrapware I knew instantly what I was going to use it for.Gorgeous new Scrapware chippie lamp postMore delish music paper banner from my fav etsy shop I finished it off with some organza and bakers twine, that can be easily undone to add more LOL.

I took advantage of this weeks sketch at Creative Scrappers to complete my layout.My fav of course October Afternoon, that little boy is an oldie but a goodie have been waiting for just the right layout to use himMore delish newsprint banner from here and have you seen the gorgeous new goodies in her shopAnd look what I received in the mail today from HandmadebySuzanne YIPEE!!!

the heart army...

After the floods here in Queensland and Brisbane I know I and many others were feeling flat for weeks afterwards.To say the devastation affected me is an understatement! You will see in my journalling below I found a way for myself to start to feel good again and to help those in need in their darkest hours and days.I will let it speak for itself
.EDTITED TO ADD someone asked me for the link to the Brisbane adoption site so here is the link.
thanks for letting me share, It seems a little bit of scrapbook therapy is good for the soul.
Thankyou also for the sweet comments on my last post, I am blown away by all your kind words.
till next time...
