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.

Succulents and Bromeliads...

I love 'em, they are breeding in my garden (especially after I have visited my Mum's and I have nicked a few!!)

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....

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.
