It's all about the Mo.... and more!

Crazy busy and i decide to take on even more!  *sigh*
No rest for the wicked they say.  Well sorry santa, but i've clearly been very naughty!  :)

To start with, the Boxx newsletter is out and it is truly amazing.  I'm so proud to be involved with such a group of talented ladies.  Go and check it out here.  The DT Challenge this month was to scrap a layout without photos.  As it was the month of 'Movember', i decided to dedicate my layout to men's health issues and scrap about something close to the heart.  This is my contribution:

And ..... i decided to respond to the KIU CT callout!!!
Not like i haven't got enough to do!

In keeping with the theme of Movember, i decided to actually do a page on my poor neglected dh, who always seems to miss out on featuring in my work  :))  ... he did after all, grow a very Chopper Read looking mo for the occasion, and raised almost $400 for the cause! 

Considering i had a page devoted to dh, i thought 'why not make it a his and hers submission'.... the only person more neglected when it comes to featuring in my pages is probably me after all.  So, no doubt for the last time in a long time.... here we are:

Sorry about the dodgy colours in the pics, but the lousy weather saw me having to set up a makeshift 'studio' inside. 

OK.  We are all starting work on our December Daily's and so far so good.  I'm struggling a bit with the whole concept of keeping it simple and just sticking it down and moving on, but i'm sure i'll get into the groove soon!  The secret is definately to just focus on one thing per day... and documenting that.  I'll be back to show you some of my 'days', but here are some of my fave pics so far:

Oh Julie your LO 'Hindsight' is so moving, what a great reminder to us all. I agree depression is definately more spoken about amongst woman and the men seem to get 'neglected' - thank you for sharing! Love your LO of you & your DH, good luck with the KIU CT call!
