To everyone who has entered our last challenge, I do have your emails and layouts on file so they are still with me.
For those who don't know, I'm gettig married in a week and a half and Cass is my "best chick" (aka matron of honour) and unfortunately the preparation (as my other half and I only decided to get married five weeks ago) has been a little crazy to say the least! One of our contributors is out of action with health issues and we are all basically run off our feet at the moment which means Everyday Garbage has not been well attended to by us in the last fortnight.
We would like to apologise for not being on top of things here and hope you all understand that sometimes life does get in the way and no matter how much we love scrapping, sometimes it has to take a backseat to the other issues going on in our lives. We do this blog for fun and we don't want it to become something that causes stress or worry for any of us.
To that end, we've decided it is best to have a small hiatus for two weeks until the wedding is out of the way, health is improved and life (hopefully) settles down a bit for us. We'll choose a winner from our last challenge during that break time and return on Tuesday 27 November, bright eyed and bushy tailed, to announce the winner of our last challenge and to post up our takes on our next challenge.
We did however want to give you an early heads up on our next challenge, so that you can make a start if you want to while we're away. Our next challenge will be "tickets" - they can be from anything, the bus, a concert, the number machine at the deli, anything you need a ticket for is fair game.
Thank you again to everyone who has come by, probably a little bewildered at what's happened to us but we wanted an opportunity to explain and to let you know what's going on in our lives so that hopefully you will understand why we've decided to put the next challenge on hold. I'm very much looking forward to the wedding but I'll be very grateful to get back to the far less hectic world of paper and glue once it's over!!! lol
Have a great couple of weeks. We can't wait to get back into the swing of things and we hope to see you all back here then.
Cheers, Lu, Cass, Lusi, Jill and Alana
