A travel inspired month.....

Well much like the short month of February, the design challenge for March has just flown by.....

In my neck of the woods we have moved into our new house ( photo's and more info later) found a new place for sis and her littlies and spent a crazy 2 weeks of school holidays setting up house for us all.
Along with having no Internet access for 2 weeks, I've proven to be a BAD BLOGGER this month and a terrible hostess of the monthly design challenge......

Alas, we have one more week till Mr. phone line man can come connect us back with the world...or my bloggy world at least, so I'll have lots of catching up to do....LOTS.
Till then check out some of the inspiring craft all the other faithful challengers have come up with this month for the European travels theme for March's Monthly design challenge:

Some too cute transfers from Kylie over at Tiges and Weince

A Parisian cushion from the talented Sarah-Jo at Ideyspidey.

European travels quilt by Nina Lisa over at Mrs.Moen the not so secret life of a quilter.

The Bonjour Cherie cushion by Felicity over at Flicketty splits

a truly stunning necklace from Sue over at Divajools

and this fun travel inspired gadget pouch from Cam over at Curlypops

If I've forgotten to include you in the monthly wrap of challengers, please let me know, it's been one hellava month and I'm bound to have forgotten sharing with you some of the fabulous challengers who possibly emailed me early on in the month....

Thank you to all who joined in, even though I couldn't make the time to update you regularly this month I have been constantly inspired by the beautiful work you all present each month and I'm so grateful you all make the time to join in.

I'll be back later to draw Aprils theme....A wee bit late.....apologies again.
