Oh my things are crazy here...update and Stuck sneak

Well there are four sleeps until the big day! It has come around so quick I can hardly believe it !

Ive been MIA for a little while now as I have been trying to organise all the last minute wedding details as well as unpacking and writing school reports....my scrapping ended up taking the backseat and keeping up with scrappy deadlines has proved hard.

But ... The room is sorta unpacked, not quite all sorted and organised but unpacked nonetheless.

Heres what my new space looks like

So therefore, amongst the chaos that is life, I got to create ...

Sneaks for Stuck- December 1st...

Thanks for looking, check back on the first for full layout share :)

Take care, xxx
