Pockets full of Art, Challenges and Dan is coming home!

I have such an exciting day today...Dan is coming home!!! Can't wait for 4:30pm to roll on by so I can get home and see him, its been a long 3 weeks but fast too, you know how that happens sometimes. Thank goodness for my gorgie friends, otherwise I'd have been sitting here on my own feeling miserable, lol

This month so far, has been a cracker and soooo busy at Scrapboutique. We have had our new monthly challenges posted and organising our projects for the Christmas workshops I have been very much in the zone with the mojo flowing...tee hee.

This month I had to schedule the Monthly Themed Challenge, and thought it would be a nice and fitting theme for November to celebrate 'Remembrance Day'. The challenge was to design a LO on a returned service person in your family and include a handmade poppy in it.
here is my page created for my dear Grandpa, Rowland Ransom Savage (hows that for a name). Grandpa was a 'Rat of Tobruk' and after researching the War Memorial database I was able to get tonnes of information on his tours of duty, really quite incredible.
I have also made an ATC for S.N.A hosted by Angie, the theme was Christmas. Sooo I decided to create a little pocket ATC depicting a Victorian Caroler Paper Doll. She has a little festive costume you can dress her in and each pocket also has a personalised message of christmas cheer for each participant. This was heaps of fun to  make, hope you like and TFL. Mwah
