Have you ever had too many projects on the go at once?
Started one and then got distracted to do another- or meet a deadline, so left another hanging..
etc etc..  so I'm made a concerted effort to get some finished that had been hanging around and to completely finish one before contemplating another.  Its not easy to do when you have my mind! lol

Scrap It Lah(and it won!!!)
is about a hobby (not including scrapbooking) and to use an element from that hobby on your LO.
I love gardening... and I've used some green wire tie that I've curled and put at the base of the Prima flower Iron-ons.  You can find the challenge here

And here are some Challenges I've managed to get done for Bon's Scraps

You'll be happy to know that the dangerous tree is now down!
There was a hairy moment where five men had to hold one of the big boughs with chains from coming down on Hannah's bedroom!  Glad I wasnt home!!!
This is taken from the diningroom - the opposite end of the house from Hannah's bedroom
These are only half the branches that fell this way the other branches have already been chopped up.
