All's been pretty quiet on the home front of late. I guess that's got something to do with my back problems. Still getting 4 x weekly visits to chiro.
Levi and Jonah turned 5 yesterday which was really gorgeous - it still amazes me that they're here. They had such a rough time in utero and I was on so many drugs that its amazing that they're both so healthy and have no major problems. Happy Birthday gorgeous boys!
Haven't been doing much scrapping - I made a couple of cards though - to be honest I don't "get" cardmarking - but here they are.

Sorry I've been keeping quiet for a while - to be honest, I've had a DREADFUL back. When I was away a couple of weeks ago, I had a fall (glamorous I know!) and since then I've had the worst back pain I've experienced.
I've been going to the physio and chiropractor. I have acute inflamation around two of my (degenerating!!) discs in my lower back and haven't even been able to sit at the 'puter, let alone produce any other work! The pain is the only pain I have known that is worse than childbirth!
Today is the first day that I have been able to actually walk around a little and sit for a couple of minutes on the 'puter!!
Anyway, nothing much to show but here's a layout I did a few weeks ago. I know its nots outstanding but it only took me a hour to do from start to finish (pretty outstanding for me I can tell you!)
I MISS EVERYONE!!!

Don't you just love the Jenni Bowlin cardstock and papers! Sarah and I have been harrassing Dawn and Kelly at Scrapapple.com.au to get and, as usual, they delivered the goods!
I'm trying to experiment with 6 x 4 photos at the moment. Who knows, might even do some layouts with more than one photo (but no promises lol!)

Sorry for being a bad bad blogger!!!
Boy did I have a terrific weekend at the Australasian Scrapbooking & Papercraft Convention!
As you know this was my first big "teaching" gig and I thoroughly enjoyed it! I don't like standing at the front of the class and teaching so I just basically wandered around the whole time which made me more relaxed. I also managed with the help of painkillers as I slipped a disc while I was away last week (great timing!)....probably why I felt so relaxed!
I also got to meet some fabulous people - all the girls in the classes were fabulous and included Petrina, Lynette (from Scrapbooks, Etc. - who STILL has to give me her blog addy - hint hint!!!), and a heap of other gorgeous girls who I hope will keep in touch. And I got to catch up with Dayleen and Peg from the Scrapapple.com Forum.and the insanely talent Lu Griffen and Cass Glass!!!
I also had the opportunity to meet Loretta Grayson, Ngaire Bartlam (who is going to decorate my little needle-felted rabbit - can't wait to see it!), the gorgeous Rachelle Minnett, Sandra Gerdes and Michelle Grant (I'll have to put the link in laterMichelle!).
I'll be having a couple of days on my back now to try and be able to move again!

I've been incredibly busy getting reading for the Australasian Scrapbooking Convention which is on in Brisbane next weekend! (That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it lol!).
The freaky thing is that all my classes are completely SOLD OUT!!!! Wowsers! (Talk about making a girl nervous!!!!)
Tim and I were lucky enough to get away to Port Douglas for a couple of days last week which was RELAXING!!! What a stunning place!
Haven't done much scrapping though so I'm just going to put up one I did sometime last week!
Anyway, thank you to everyone stopping by - Please leave a message - I love to know who's popping in AND if you're coming to the Convention next weekend, let me know won't you?!?!?
