Tis the season to care : )

Heya guys!!

Well most of the time I blog about scrapping.....this is The Happy Scrappy Place after all.....but I just wanted to tell you guys about PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals) I know by now you've probably rolled your eyes and gone....Oh those CRAZY animal loving vegan nuts, why on earth would I wanna read about them......but animal welfare is an issue thats always close to my heart. We don't all have to be Hippy mung bean vegans who throw ourselves infront of whale harpoons........BUT we can do things like check out The PETA website every now and again  just so we can be more product aware(like did you know Lipton tea have been doing horrible tests on animals?)...and maybe sign a petition or two....EASY!

Thanks heaps for reading my rambling hehe

Love and Peace and Happiness xox

Kraft It Up - December Challenge

Since I've been stalking Kraft It Up for quite some time now.....I thought I really should actually do a challenge! The December challenge is to scrap a Christmas photo using non traditional Christmas colours and have knots on your LO......Sooooo I used one of my fave colour combos....yellow and teal.....Oh and I got a little 'ahem' spray happy with the glimmermist.....well it is a Chrissy lo.......needs that extra sparkle...right?

The title is "Our Family tradition is Decorationg the Tree Together"

I just gotta have lots of layers and height....and isn't that Hambly owl fab!

My knots are fabric that "ties" the banner to the lo.....

Thankyou very muchly for having a goosey goosey gander at my Blog : )

And here's my take on it.....It's a photo of Elijah sitting at the top of the slide daydreaming....he tends to do this alot.....even when there is a line of impatient kids behind him waiting for thier turn hehe

A Bo-Bunny chip sticker frame, Shagpile black & white button & Lil Red Rocket red button....

Awesome The Chip Chop Shop bubbly chippy and Fab Flower trim from a Polka Dot Place kit....

An lubby Jubbly Hambly birdy rub-on...the AWESOME brick wall transparency is Hambly goodness too....
