What I've Been Up To Lately...

The months are whizzing by and I nearly missed loading a post for September! Never fear, I managed to get one in just in time. And, if we go by USA time, then I have a day to spare :)

Since my last post I have been creating here and there and unfortunately I was also sick which sucked my creative mojo. I finished my double page 2012 layout - this is one I do every year with index photos. This year I added fold out pages on the outside edges to create room for journaling and more photos. I had held off working on this project as I wasn't sure how to 'handle' the content. Last year was challenging for me health-wise and I wanted to document it yet still remain positive. I think I managed it.

Last weekend I finally got my creative mojo back and added photos to the mini albums made at CAD earlier this year. I really enjoyed creating them and I even used pink stickles (I am not a pink kind of girl).  Thought I'd use my September post to show you how they turned out:

These are photos from times with good friends in Auckland over a couple of visits last year. I love, love, love that I finally used some stamps from my collection that I have never used - that's right I said never. At least I can feel a little less shame now, right?

These photos were from a trip to Canberra to visit dear family friends.

These photos were from a family trip to Melbourne and I love the family pictures we took at a restaurant one night.
There you go, that's what I have been up to lately.
