June Challenges

How did you go with the May challenges? I got very little done as i was away for 3 weeks!!! I was travelling around NSW visiting family with our little family. It was so great to get around and see everyone, but boy was it exhusting!! Lots of night driving (since it's much easier with the kids asleep!!), and my little one was just AWEFUL at nights!!! She was in our bed every night with us by 1-3ish due to her getting up so much!!! Totally exhausting. Oh well. It's very nice to be home again, and i've certainally got lots of material for scrapping!!!

Before i get onto the challenges for this month, i want to give a shout out to Charms Creations and her gorgeous handmade embellishments!! I won a $50 voucher with her last night, and boy did i have fun spending it!!! I just can't wait to get my lovely package next week!!! Here's a small sample of what she creates:

Aren't they fab?!!??! You can win a $20 voucher with her challenge each month too, plus a chance to be a guest designer on her blog site! Her challenge this month is so fab - just use one of her AWESOME products with any of the challenges over at Scrapbooking From Scratch!! I've popped these challenges below in the challenges section!!
