So unfortunately we didn't make it to our friends wedding on the weekend :( my dh caught the vomiting bug too! But we did get to go out Sunday night with friends it was wonderful no kids! well they have 4 kids and we have 2 so it was a bit weird without them!
It was back to kindermusik and Gym this morning and Lachy is back to school tomorrow! yipee! He is getting a bit bored now not having his two days at school!

Now to scrapbooking!.....Firstly something exciting! I had another lo accepted for publication this one in creating keepsakes! Now I have made double figures! woo hoo that was my 10th acceptance!
Friday arvo/evening I was lucky to be able to attend 2 workshops at my lss Made with Memories. Hosted by two very talented ladies Maxine Hazelbroek and Audrey Underwood! Most people would know these ladies from scrapbooking memories. Anyway I had a blast and this is what we created.....using the new Collections boxes and tiles.

I learnt lots of new techniques!
This layout is for a textures challenge over at Deb's Creations! If you like a challenge and like to be inspired come over and join us at Debs Creations!

This pic is my dd with a tutu on that her Nana made!
I have used
Prima pp's flirty little secrets, prima flowers, leaves and say it with crystals. Old book paper, doily, paint and tim holtz distress crackle. Making Memories felt letters.

Just a quick update! The scrap space...


I can now see my table!! and use my table!! As I mentioned before this is in my bedroom so I have limited space. But this is a huge improvement! I still have to get a set of draws (they were out if stock of what I wanted) I will put in the right hand corner and a rack for my papers. I have lots of boxes of stash to go through and organise in these shelves and put pics in my cute little frames and make it pretty! I think my fav thing is my new lamp it is sooo bright and looks cool and wait for it.....it was only 11$ at Ikea! and it can extend and it is directional and did I mention it was only

I received my goodies for the challenges I won last month from RSS. Thanks Shell! I have already put it to good use!
I will be back soon to show some layouts I couldn't get a good pic this arvo! Then I may disappear for a few days! Busy busy! Fri I am doing 2 classes with Maxine and Audrey cant wait sooo exciting they are so talented! Saturday I have a wedding and Sunday we have dinner and pub with Friends!! So between now and then I have to have wax, hair and nails done and find something to wear. Unfortunately I am not the 10kg lighter I was supposed to be so I am not looking forward to finding something to wear! My darling mum is having our little ones and we are going to have a party weekend! We haven't done that for years!! I don't know I will be able to keep up!
Anyway till next time

Never a dull moment here! First thing Tuesday morning...my dd split her head open! ewwww blood everywhere. Yep I am one of those people totally useless when there is an accident especially when it involves blood! The story goes my ds and dd where running in the house (forgetting mums rule of NO running in the house!) then they collided and Ava went flying into the wall :(

So guess where I spent the day just waiting to get her head glued up. Yes the hospital was sooooo slow as usual. I had to help them pin her down so they could glue her head she was screaming poor bubba. But she has been fine since...we just have to make sure she doesn't bang it again while it's healing. Otherwise she will need stitches and it will scar. Here is a pic of her laying with Daddy that night, we gave her some panadole cause she keep saying sore mummy. So cute how she is telling everyone she went to the hos-ta-bul! (hospital)

This was her having a wash with a flannel cause were not aloud to get it wet...she decided to try to fit in the basin!

I also sold my other car this week woo hoo since I bought the ute we have had 3 cars and 2 motorbikes!
So guess where I went today! Ikea! My dh and I planned a scrap space in our room he is putting all the shelving together as i type!! I don't have the luxury of a scrap room I was on the kitchen table then my hubby got sick of my junk on it ...so he bought me a tresel table and made a space in our room and now he is sick of my junk everywhere in our room so he said I could buy some goodies from ikea! I just love my man!! I got a shelving unit a single shelf, storage boxes, magnetic board, mag holders, hanging rack and a cool bright desk lamp!!

I will post some pics soon with the progress!
Now for the scrapping! This is a acrylic butterfly album. I will be teaching this at my lss. Sorry the pics are not that good it looks better in real life!

I have used twiddleybitz acrylic butterfly album. Cosmo Cricket pp's - everafter, kaiser stamps, collections vintage butterflies , Kaiser pearls, tim holz distress ink and crackle paint.

Must go I did this post 3 hrs ago and just got back to finish it! I need to go to bed!
Talk Soon
