Boxx News!

Yep... it's the Boxx newsletter time again and it's full of lots of goodies!  Pop over and check out the new Boxx of Scraps Kit and the Book of You.... sensational!

I was up for the DT challenge this month, which was to scrap a layout using the title theme "I am".  Considering i pulled out those wedding photos, scanned and printed a tonne of them, it seemed the perfect opportunity to do this one:

{I am... still in love}

... and, i asked another DT member, the fabulously talented Leanne Jago, to put up the sketch challenge this month... just to get another perspective.  This is Leanne's sketch:
and her layout:

...and I even had an upside down go at this one myself too  :)...

{our day}

sorry.... more wedding photos!!:

I loved having a go at this sketch.  It really forced me out of my comfort zone to get inventive and work on my design and not fall into the same design rut.  Thanks LJ... head on over and upload your layout to the sketch challenge thread this month! 

Oh... and if i haven't visited in a couple of weeks.... i's soooo sorry!! It's not because i haven't been trying!  These blogger problems seem to still be persisting with me.  I can't leave any comments on blogs that have their comments embedded at the end of the post... only those with 'full page' or 'pop up' options selected as a comment setting.  Is any one else noticing that particular distinction, or is it only me!?

On the family front.. the flu totally knocked us all over this last week, but we seem to be on the mend now.  Lachy's chest seems better and he is off his antibiotics now, so hopefully his 'digestive issues' will settle down too (uuuughh!).  We are all still coughing and sniffing (but of course 'Troy's Man Flu' is far worse than anybody's... men!! hehehe), but the aches and pains seem to have dissappeared, thankfully.  Still can't hear or taste anything though... hate that! 

Hope this flu season hasn't cught up with you, although it appears that half the planet is suffering at the moment...

hugs and thanks for stopping by,
