After having a good think I decided that a round up of the month would be perfect. Not into journaling but wanting to have some sort of reference for the photos I have the Day, Date and Subject in a list style. I felt this style of layout was perfect for me and should look good in a photobook too.
And I am happy to say that I have kept up...woohoo must be a new record for me, lol!

The party is scheduled to last four weeks and as Shimelle puts it... "A four week celebration of pasting pretty paper to other pretty papers in an aesthetically pleasing manner. Would you care to join me?" I sure will, this class sounds great!
Although the party has started it's not to late to join in, class materials include PDF prompts, videos to show specific step by step techiques, there's a message board of course so you can mix and mingle with other party-goers and some goodies along the way.
Can't wait to join in on the fun, I need a bit of a push lately to get creative and this sounds like just the ticket. Hope to see you there :)

First up go and like the MyMemories facebook page and grab yourself a freebie, then join in the fun of a game or two with LisaJ for more freebies, plus there are challenges... participate in those to be in the running for even more freebies and then just when you thought it couldn't get any better, get your friends to like the MyMemories facebook page too coz the more fans they get means even more freebies will be given away.
It looks like the MyMemories Designers have all jumped on board too and are giving away some GREAT stuff when the MyMemories facebook page hits 7000, 8000, 9000 and then as LisaJ puts it 'BIG' stuff at 10,000!! WOWWWIEEEEE!!!
Still want more.... head on over to the MyMemories store, check out all the fabulous Designers and take a peek at the free downloads page where you can pick up my Time to Play Quick Pages
Can it get any better =)

I accept that cheap fitted sheets always have a snug fit, so snug they seem to come off the matteress during the night. Plus there never seems to be enough in the top sheet to tuck in and the pillow cases are a little on the snug side too, but you can always squish the pillow in and hope the seams on the case don't burst...lol.
Well all that changed last year when Blossom, after hearing of my sheet purchases declared that from now on for christmas each year we would get a set of good quallity sheets as a gift. Good quality sheets...really how good could they be? Well Christmas arrived and so did said sheet set, 500 Thread Count sheets to be exact... who knew sheets came with a thread count, the higher the count the better apparently and if I buy any I am not allowed to get lower than 500 Thread Count!
Were they good... oh my goodness... YES! We litterly slid into bed the first night we used them, these things felt like silk in comparision to the previous sheets. I was converted, never again would I buy cheap sheets. The very next day I madly threw out all the old sheets sets, great plan then I couldn't slip back into bad habits and cheap sheets, except... now I only had one set of sheets...DOH!
So it has taken me awhile to buy another set of sheets as I've been waiting for that BIG SALE, you know the 50% OFF Sale, the yearly crazy prices sale, the sale where I can justify to myself that although the sheets are more than $5 they are not full price.
So what did I buy - a 1000 Thread Count sheet set... were they cheap even at 50% off... no sireeee but the quality and feel of them made me swoon =) . Making up the bed today with these sheets was a pleasure, they feel like the ones hotels use and to my delight fit perfectly... not snug. My tip, if like me you have never been enthusiastic about sheets treat yourself to some 500 Thread Count sheets (or higher) I'm sure you won't regret it, they are devine!
New Sheets.... such a simple thing I know but I am soooooo excited to sleep in them tonight.

Finally a couple of days of nice weather, so what do I do.... a shed clean out...bahahahaha! Well the shed was a bit messy...
and this is not even everything out of the shed o_O. I still can't believe we crammed all of that junk in there.
But... this was the end result, a nice neat, tidy shed with room for everything that we decided to keep. Like lego and Barbies, the important stuff you know...hehehehe.
I'm so in love with the shed now, I can see myself spending more time in there :)
Today's freebie which is much better than my shed of course, is the card I did up for the challenge. It's in .png format and just the card front, hope you like it!
DOWNLOAD HERE! Let me know if you like it, I love to hear from you all :)

What a month September was and it seemed to pass in a blur, I sure did enjoy it though. I got a few cards created, came up with a few ideas on how to organise my craftroom better and squeezed in a whole lot of family time :)
I did forget a couple of things of course as I do when distracted...lol, that being the challenges for September. Instead I will post double challenges this month and to start off October is a card sketch...
DOWNLOAD HERE! Have fun with the template and please send me a link to your cards, I'd love to see them :)
