Challenge to myself and LO'S

Hi Everyone, hope that you all had a good weekend. We have had a busy Saturday followed by a very relaxing Sunday. "NOICE"
In keeping with my last post I have finished my LO that was inspired by Traceys
daughter Alex and scrapping the everyday things. This LO is very loud and colourful for me but i couldn't go past this cute American Crafts paper. This LO below is for the monthly challenge at TM's this month was a bit different as we were given a sketch courtesy of Kaisercraft to do with as we wish. This is my interpretation. A fun photo of my brother and his family.

Now here is the personal challenge bit. I made these Debbie Mumm wall hangings quite a few years ago and they are my favourites. I did have them hanging in our old house (only with blu tack--shhh) and am yet to put them up here. As we have been here for nearly four years i think that its time for me to get them on display (I did try blu tack ---shhhhh again) but they fell of the wall so i guess that i will have to make some hanging sleeves for them and do it PROPERLY. So the challenge to myself is to do this before the end of the holidays. :)

Now I am of to finish dinner as DH and DD, (DS away again) have asked for their ultimate favourite dinner. Roast chicken with homemade stuffing and home made chips. We don't have the chips very often as they are not that good for you and i find that it takes ages to peel,slice and cook them. If you haven't made your own stuffing you should its very easy, tastes much better than any shop bought one and you use up stale left over bread. I always make a big batch and then freeze it in portions.
One last note before I go Kylie from Threads of Friendship
has got a really gorgeous giveaway so go check it out and leave a comment.
That's it from me
Have a good week
