He's Got ALL the moves!

A layout I did today using the gorgeous Stemma papers! I love this photo of Jonah doing his "dancin'" thang! He just thinks he is soooooo cool - I love it!

Christmas Windows

As a child, every year, my Mum and Grandma used to take me into the City and the Valley to see the gorgeous Christmas windows - I will NEVER forget the excitement of that!

Yesterday, Mum and I took the little boys into the City (on their first train ride!) to see Santa and look at the Christmas windows! Although there were only two windows done up in Myer (btw they were absolutely gorgeous!), the boys thoroughly enjoyed themselves! The train ride was so exciting for them...AND... they went to see Santa!!! Of course, we got the obligatory Santa Photo! They are at such a beautiful age for Christmas now and are VERY excited!

I'm so glad we went this week so as it wasn't too crowded! We were ALL exhausted by the end of the day but I'd do it again tomorrow just to see the looks on their little faces.

A Question

Question: What's square and yellow and hangs from the wall of the twins' bedroom?

Answer: Why, its a piece of dried up cheese, of course!

Don't ask me how it got there, but it got there last nite - and I had the joy of removing it this morning! Don't you just love boys?!?!?

Same old, same old.....

Another gorgeous Monday morning! Kids at kindy/school - aaah, bliss!!!

Didn't do any scrapping over the w/end but finished this one off on Friday nite. Very basic but I think that kinda' suits the photo! Anyhoo...see if I can come up with anything exciting this week lol!

Had a gorgeous day 4WDing yesterday and ended up at O'Reilly's - found a fabulous 4WD spot and camping grounds. Might try and take the boys away for a couple of nites over the Xmas break. Not much else to report!

Hope everyone has a great week!

An oldie...

I did this one ages ago but never got around to posting it!

Looking at my work, I have decided that I really don't have a style yet - I'm a bit all over the place but I do know I love chipboard and I love stitching - both machine and hand. Other than that, I guess a style will develop over time!

A couple of layouts

A photo of Jonah in his Superman cape - experimenting with colour here!
A photo of the very intense Levi

  • This one's for you Susan!

    OK. I haven't posted in a while.

    The reason - I'm starting to feel like all I post about is kids being sick....and happened again. Last Thursday nite, Levi came down with high temps 39.5C and he was like that until yesterday. Honestly, this has been the WORST year for kids being sick! I can't believe it and I am soooooooo over it! Actually I burst into tears when his temp soared - I just thought "not again" but, hopefully, next year will be better.

    A LO for Me!

    I did this layout last nite - just for me! I am trying to teach myself about Photoshop and this was a bit of a play with a photo I took of Jonah at Bribie Island last month. Very subdued layout but I kinda like it!

    Kids are all well (woo hoo)!.

    BTW huge congratulations to the gorgeous and extremely talented Sarah van Wijck for her appointment to the For Keeps Elite Team 2007. Honestly, if you get a chance, pop over to her blog - her work is just AMAZING. I am sooooo happy for her that I feel like its happened to me lol!

    I'm back!!!!

    Woo Hoo - after a hellish couple of weeks, I feel like I'm back in the land of the living (touch wood!). Zane's at school, twins at kindy, me at home - scrapping today (so much to catch up on) - might even think about getting the housework up to date (maybe tomorrow but no promises).

    I'll even put up a layout to share - this is using the Magisitcal Memories November release chipboard frame and also the gears - they are fabulous for boy layouts.

    Keep checking in - I might even put up a RAK later in the week!
