Hello Everyone!
We had some beautiful rain today! Don't you just love the smell of rain! We haven't had any for a while so it was nice. Yesterday was my 13th Wedding Anniversary! My hubby and I went out for a lovely dinner at Simon's Seafood in Northbridge. Nanny and Poppy came over in the arvo and gave us some pressy's and the kids got pressy's too. Here are some photo's......
Ava got another baby that giggles and cry's and has a million accessories! She was so excited...I cant believe how much she loves baby dolls already and she's not 2 yet!!

Lachlan got hungry hippo's game and more racing cars!

Well I got scrapping albums!...what else is there to buy me! Mum got me these leather ones with the rings they are so easy to put pages into and they hold a lot of pages without squashing them and of coarse mum made us this anniversary card! Oh and Casey got $200 in bunnings vouchers! I have been trying to steel them all day! cause I'm not aloud to spend them cause mum and dad gave them to him!!!!! That's what he thinks.... lol
Me and Casey are going shopping together on the weekend to buy pressy's. I know where is the romance? come on 13 yrs I am over perfume and jewelry! We just buy practical things we want now!!
This is my latest page...I decided to get out all my old chipboard flowers and try to use them all up! I have painted them with MM paint and dimensional fluid.
I have used
AC thickers
kaiser pearls
mm tiny alphas
Pink paislee papers

I must go I have so many design team packs to create I have to go do some scrapping!!
Thanks for looking

Hi There

grab a cuppa this turned into a long one!!!

Lots has been happening! This week my son had his first full day off kindy which he loved .... but he was so tired when he came home he went to bed at 6:30!

My dd was trying to climb out of her cot but she kept getting stuck and calling out "help mummy"! So we decided it was time to change the cot into a bed! grrrr I was not ready!!

So now she has joined her brother in not staying in her bed and jumping on us at 6am!!! ahhh 2 of them!lol

Friday I had a million visitors and millions of my hairdresser who was doing my hair...and my mum! Today I had my sister in law and her hubby and three kids. Always the way hey you never see anyone for months then you see the all in the same weekend!!

Friday night mum and I went to a crop night. My first one! I know can you believe I have never been to one! Well it was great! most of the ladies were very quiet..but mum and I didn't stop talking! But how dangerous is it having the shop open for you to browse whenever you need too buy anything up until midnight!

Anyway I completed this layout...this is for the songbird scraps latest challenge. I love this photo of my boy he is such a character and so full of personality and charm! I was taking photo's of them in their pool and he walked past did this pose at the camera. I thought it really suited those song lyrics.

What a sad weekend and week it has been for our country. I just want to say my heart goes out to all affected by the bushfire's, especially those that have tragically lost loved ones. I, like many of you have been glued to the TV watching as the death toll rises and the stories of what people went through...I have had many tears for them.
I would like to mention that Taryn at Scraptastic South West is having online auction of scrapping pages to raise money for these people. We hope we can help in some small way. Taryn has asked if anyone would like to donate a layout to be actioned that would be great. Please contact Taryn at SSW.

Well I did have a layout to show...I did a layout of Lachlans first day of Kindy using Angie's blog sketch...but silly me submitted with some other layouts and they all got accepted by Scrapbooking Memories! So that's another 3, WOO HOO!!
My other layouts are for my guest DT spot for Anna's Craft Cupboard so I can only give you a sneak peek!! Look out for them coming up at Anna's Craft Cupboard. One will be on her blog with step by step instructions.

Lachy is off to His first full day of Kindy tomorrow! yipee! He wants to go everyday so he will be happy to be there for the day....I will be having a enjo party ( so exciting buying cleaning products!) NOT! I always get sucked into these things!!
I really took a interest because my daughter has had eczema so I would like to eliminate some chemicals. So I must clean up and make some goodies for tomorrow!
