Masters 2008

What a great Christmas present!
I won two Honorable Mentions in the Scrapbooking Memories Masters Comp!!
What a thrill - I really didn't think I would have a chance. I haven't seen the mag yet (things are a bit slow to get to Bundy!) But I am stoked!!!

A huge Congratulations to the 10 ladies who won the coveted Masters title - and to the other HM ers!!

um...guess that's the festive bit over..

okay - yes I am slack Miss Cass - I am feeling MUCH better now - all the horrible pregnancy sickness has gone - So I WILL BLOG!! (oh yes will!) I have 2 weeks off - planning big spring - (well only slightly late!!) clean.. and I guess I had better find somewhere to put this new baby as I won't have any more time off now before he (yep he!!) comes.
Happy Holidays as they say in America!!

ho ho ho...

It's that time again!! 6 weeks till Christmas - we have 5 family birthdays between now and then!


thought I'd use this month's Aussie dare as a way to use up all Tilly's photos from her trip to Sydney..
The challenge was to use a CD or LP cover as inspiration..
I have used "LOVE ACTUALLY". easy-peasy!!!

I'm back!!

haven't thrown up for 5 WHOLE DAYS!!! I actually feel like scrapping again.. thank god - I was getting a bit depressed there for a while...

there is a light....

at the end of the morning sickness tunnel - I have not blogged for a month - barely getting through my workday - dinner bath. bed for the kids and collapsing into bed at 7,30... so what's with this whole BLOOMING thing??? Seems I kinda bypass that.. But it has eased - I now have traditional "morning" sickness.. only vomiting first thing - which is a HUGE improvement from the last 10 weeks - 16 weeks preggas now - so one would hope that it will end soon...

hmmm - STILL WAITING to hear from Scrapbooking Memories Masters - lucky really I have been so crook, or I would have been obsessing about it!!!

anyway - have got a little mojo back..

starting to feel a bit better. Today is the first day in 9 weeks that I haven't thrown up - and that is while ON maxalon. So I am hoping that it is the beginning of the end - THANK GOD!!!

I actually did a LO today - my first in 8 weeks - I can feel my mojo coming back! I think these 2 weeks holiday were just what I needed..
off to get some batteries for my camera..

Yo-yo surprise!!

One of Mums quilting friends has given me this HUGE bag of yo-yos!! They are all fab 70's colours..
I can't wait to use them on a layout!
I have been scrapping up a storm - some old photos, some new, some I have done before (I'm sure they'll find a home!!) This is my Dad on stage in the 70's.... I guess you could call it scrap - jumping - from one style an era to another. I don't plan it - it just sort of happens that way!!

who dares??

I have taken the latest challenge from the girls at the the Aussie who dares site - to design a lo using an ad as inspiration...
here is my effort.

I love Friday nights!!

Ooohh yeah - 2 days off, and my cleaner came today - so the house is spotless....
yayay - I think a weekend in the garden is called for..

I love this photo of the kids playing and cracking each other up - this game involved a lot of farting...
funny though!!!

It's nearly springtime.

My favourite time in the garden, everything is starting to grow again...and it's not too hot to enjoy it!!! These are some of my favourite spots in my garden. When we moved here 2 years ago - there wasn't one single plant!!!
It's my 2nd love after scrapping! There just aren't enough hours in the day....

About an album

A work in progress for my daughter...

...when it rains...

it pours..
I have a broken thumb.
poor me.
big ow...
I am trying to think of a really cool story as to what happened, but it was inane and DUMB!!!
I slammed my hand in the safe at work. Should be called a Not Safe hey?
I haven't scrapped since the start of the school hols...we have had illness upon illness, and um, the odd accident.
but IT ENDS NOW!!!
this weekend
I am going to do 6 layouts tomorrow. I have set a catch up challenge..
I just need to convince DH to take the kids to the beach.
Watch this space for one handed creations!!!!

Miss Molly had a Dolly..

who was sick, sick, sick..
I know the feeling..I have not blogged or scrapped, or slept for that matter!! Since the start of the school holidays..We have had a terrible run of illness - gastro, tonsilitis, and culminating in a seizure where my daughter inhaled vomit, couldn't breathe and had to be resuscitated...hospitals, blood tests, EEG.s oh boy. Add in a 3 day Health and Safety conference in Rockhampton, and an official opening of the store...
We are all back to school and work tomorrow - I'll be glad for the break!
anyway - apart from that we are all great!!
I need some scrap therapy...
but not tonight...I will watch Grey's and go night night..

and now it's July!!!

So, work should be slowing down a bit now huh?? I finally have a weekend at home YAY!!! I mean it is great to get away, but when you work full time, a couple of weekends away in a row can really throw you out....
Have done a few pages, only finishing off UFO's...waiting for my scrap mojo to return after a good REST>>
