My 100th Post and a Blog Challenge

Well would you believe this is my 100th post since I started this blog in October last year, I never believed I would ever have a blog let alone make so many new friends who want to come along daily to see what I have posted.

So to all of my blogging friends I would like to say a huge 'Thank You' for coming along and leaving such lovely comments, its the time you spend and thoughtfulness that makes it all worth while.

I was hoping this post would be to tell you all that my new Grandson has arrived but alas that is not to be, Mum is going in to be induced if baby isn't here by Monday so I will keep you posted.

Anyway onto today's proper post, it is day 28 on 365 Cards and I have to say my box is filling up nicely even though I have used some of the cards I have made for recent Birthdays.

Today's challenge is called Scraplift yourself.

If you are also a scrapbooker, then this is definitely a challenge for you. Take a layout that you've done, and translate it into a card. Share the layout and the card with us so we can see your source of inspiration.

Here is the layout I used for inspiration, it is a LO I did of my Hubby, the photo's were taken on a recent holiday to Italy, I wanted to make the LO because in the 25 years we have been together this was only the second time we had been away without the kids, we went to Lake Garda and visited Venice, it was a fantastic holiday and this Lo reminds me of it everyday as it sits on the unit in my office in front of my PC.

And here is my card based on the LO, it is going to be given to my Hubby on our Wedding Anniversary in July, I have made it a little more personal by adding a ring pull from one of his beer cans and the bottle top incorporated in the flower.

Wow that was a long post, hope you didn't get bored before the end!!

Well, to begin with, congrats on your 100 post!! Mine is coming up soon too and I can't believe it! Next, believe me, it is a pleasure for us to stop in and see what you have created each day. You are a real talent. Next, I'm praying for a quick delivery of your grandson and good health to him and his mom. Lastly, this card and that LO are 'ausome'! I love that you used "his" things in the card. How cool was that?! Great job, Maz!

Congrats on your 100th post and keep up the good work.

I love the LO (and your husband is very handsom) the card you created from it is very calm and peaceful. I am hope that is how you feel when you look at your scrap LO.
