Where have I been

Well it seems I've been sick. I had no idea, lots of temps but nothing else. Went to the Quacks and got sorted. But it wasn't fun.

Today is my mums birthday. Happy Birthday mum. She's a very young 55.

School goes back in less than a week. I'm going to miss them. Its a big year. One starting school and another starting high school. WOW where did that go. I can't believe it.

Off to put them to bed.

Today and all that Jazz

I have spent all evening working out how to make word books. I had a really good tutorial from pazzles and once I worked out what was what I was set.

I've made one for my nephew Lucas that is so cute. I used Disney font so my sister will be proud.

And I made another as a surprise for them. I hope it will be. (Hmmmm who could it be)

This evening my brother in law is getting his next tattoo. He's having Lucas put on his arm I think. I'm looking forward to seeing it. His tattoo's are very unique.

BUT most importantly, BattleStar Galactica. The final 10 episodes started airing. Oh I'm so excited to see how everything turns out. When I was a kid, the original series was the first show I ever took a fancy for. I'm starting to re watch them and I'm really surprised how much I remember. Not to mention how funny the special effects are for there time. WOW we really have it good now.

I'm off to see whats on the idiot box

Been to the city.......Sydney.

We've just got back from the City.........Oh yes, it was like the clampets go to Beverly hills.
For those who have never seen my hubby he's a country bumpkin and looks so out of place. Come to think of it we did too. You can tell who the tourists are.....US
We won a Harbour bridge climb so off he went...............he bought photos and didn't fall off the coat hanger so that's all that's important. Kev took a friend of ours Ness. It was a funny site.
We went to the Sydney reptile park thing. Its next to the aquarium. It was awesome. I had heaps of butterflies land on my hat. Yes I took photos. So did all the tourists of my head. It was so cool.....or hot.
Funny thing.......we saw a group of girls sun baking in the park. Jack saw me looking and said " Those kids are silly mum, there's no water here, and there turning red" Maddisons response. "Yes jack there getting cancer. They think its fashion." Shelby added. "I'm not doing that. I don't like red, I like Pink.".
Well I'm off to look at my photos from today and find paper to match. Might go for a Milk shake at RED's.

Cheers Big ears

PS I'll share photo's tomorrow when I can get to the scanner.

High Temps

Well it reached 44 today. And that was on the veranda. Have no idea what is was in the sun.

Today is a special day. Its my Nana's Birthday. We'll be heading up to her grave soon. I have a heap of fake flowers to give her. No point using real as they die in an hour.

I hate the heat. Sandwiches for tea as its too hot to cook.

Scrapping today

My sweet Shelby Bellby decided she would scrap today. But of course I have to scrap next her. Which is very hard.......if you've ever scrapped with a kid, they tend to want help every 30 seconds. But today she surprised me. She had a very clear vision of what she wanted to do. And I think she did very well. Seeing she's only 7.

So I managed to get a whole page done in 30mins. Very fast. And its very bright too.

As she was still going I though I should keep going and I got out the Christmas photos from this year. It would have been very quick except I didn't have the right colour paint wise so I did and opposite colour and ink to get a different effect. Its simple but I like it.
I have my next photos out and ready to scrap tomorrow. But I might take a look at my Disney album and see what needs doing there too.

Well it's just gone midnight so off to bed for me.

OH so Pretty

Many THANKS to Sharon M who showed me how to make these.

I made these 2 for my mum and sister. They love them.......or at least they said they

Today I'm making one for myself. And I'll try not to be so glitter happy. I think I may have add just a bit too much to these.

I am however on a mission to find the perfect wings. I'm hoping to find a WPC file of just the right wings or butterfly shape. I've had many idea's but still playing with what looks best. If you have any ideas let me know.

I'm off to watch Horton Hears a Who..........lucky me

First layout for the year

And of course its a double.

Who is it.............I hear you ask. Even I had to look twice when I found these. Well its me. OMG.

I look so different.........young. It was 1990. Almost 20yrs ago. FAR OUT.

The next lot of pages I did are of all the other photos of the day. This is the first layout I've used my Pazzles on. I just love the title. And the swirls. So very cool. I must say however that finding paper for these photos was not easy. Seems the background colours where very dark and yuck. But I'm very pleased with how it turned out.

They guy..............His name is Mathew. Such a lovely guy. He was a good friend at the time. I wonder what he's doing now. Great things I'm sure because I was going to grow into a lovely man that's for sure. Who knows.............I might try finding him. I'll let you know how I go.

Day After New Years Day

My new TOY

It finally happened. I have a CUTTING machine.

And not a simple one. I was going to get the MM slice. But I jumped in 2 feet first and got the Pazzles.


Because its holidays I haven't been able to really go crazy and cut heaps but I've welded and matted and last night I made my own design.

Here's a pic of my attempt. No bad simple.

My plan is join lots of swaps and get my self trying new stuff. Hmmmmmm. This could be interesting.

I'm cooking a roast so I'm off to cut the veggies.

Cheers Kids
