Will I EVER Catch up on this Blog ???

So 2011 is running out and I haven't been around much :-(
Many things happened since I have been here. . . only real life priorities and no blogging time for me :-(

Some time ago, we had a COLOUR CHALLENGE over at Enmarc's Social Network. The challenge was called by Mariaan, one of the DT members.

Inspired by COLOUR! Create a double or single page layout using YELLOW (Different shades of Yellow allowed) as your main colour. You may add ONE other colour of your choice, but Yellow must be the main colour on your layout.
Remember to use at least ONE Enmarc product on your layout.

I also loved the challenge over at Let's Scrap and decided to combine the 2 challenges

IOTW 9-26-11

I see why everyone says this is a hard job. I had quite a list of LOs I loved but the one that stood out was the sunny yellow LO that Alma Carter put togethr with all the beautiful yellow flowers. It just kept taking my eye with all the textures (the coregated strips were so perfect). Please be sure and leave Alma some love in the gallery.

WOW! How wonderful is that! This was the 2nd time I won the Inspiration of the Week over at Let's Scrap !

TYFL :-)
